 My take on the Product

 

I haven’t tried the original Revealed Palette but from what I can tell from reviews/swatches online, Revealed 2 has more pinks, berries, plum and taupe shades – like a more cool toned version of the original Revealed palette. It  reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes. The eye shadow palette containing 20 shadows comes in a slim cardboard box – very efficient and compact packaging which may not be very luxurious looking but its fairly sturdy and travel friendly. The only thing missing here is a mirror.

I have always associated Coastal Scents with the large 88 and 120 color palettes that offer loads of shades – not necessarily very great quality. But I was blown away by the Revealed 2 palette. Almost all the eye shadows felt really buttery and smooth in texture, had excellent color pay off and actually stay on very well on my lids (without a primer). You can tell how pigmented these are by the swatch pictures. The palette contains 6 matte shades and the remaining 12 are shimmers. The mattes were silky smooth and very easy to blend, soft mattes aren’t very easy to find!  The shimmer/frost eye shadows have a lovely finish and great texture as well. The only shadow that wasn’t as great as the rest in terms of texture was the black one with cherry shimmer – 2nd from right in the bottom row. It has a slightly gritty texture and there might be fall out issues with this one. But the rest are pretty amazing.

 

I haven’t had a chance to wear all the shades yet but I’ve used about the half of these so far and I’m very impressed with the staying power. Even after 8 hours of wear without a primer, the shadows were intact with barely any signs of creasing or fading. I did layer the shades well so that might be one factor for the good wear time. For this price, I think this is a fantastic palette! The eye shadow quality is amazing and honestly, a lot better than I had expected. The shade range is great – you can easily do a soft eye or a dramatic look with these, 20 shades give you a lot of room for variety!

 Overall Thoughts

 

For this price, I think this is a fantastic palette! The eye shadow quality is amazing and honestly, a lot better than I had expected. The shade range is great – you can easily do a soft eye or a dramatic look with these, 20 shades give you a lot of room for variety! If you’ve been wanting the Urban Decay Naked palettes, these are cheaper dupe and many of these shades look similar to the Urban Decay ones. I highly recommend this palette to everyone! I only wish Coastal Scents reduces their shipping charges, the worldwide shipping rate is rather high right now!

The Revealed 2 palette is on SALE at $9.95 (Rs 590) till tomorrow so if you want to snag this at the offer price, you can place your order at coastalscents.com.

Rating : 4.5/5

    Shipping charges are too high, that holds me back!! This is an amazing palette and beautiful fotd Ankita!

    The pigmentation looks great ! Much affordable to Urban Decay Naked palettes . Thanks for your review

  3. June 4, 2014 / 8:39 am

    great review dear 🙂 love ur FOTD too 🙂 However Coastal Scents shipping charge is more than the palette 🙁

    • June 4, 2014 / 10:49 am

      Ya that's too bad! I wish they would lower their shipping charges.

      • Rey
        June 4, 2014 / 11:10 am

        I tried buying it but when I saw the shipping charges which was around 2000/- 🙁 that made me to hold back ….Otherwise the product is amazing. What you did was too cool 🙂

        • June 4, 2014 / 1:23 pm

          Hey Rey, I just checked the shipping to an Indian postal code and I see a USPS shipping option for $18 (approx Rs 1000). Are you looking at the FedEx options?

  4. June 4, 2014 / 8:42 am

    Beautiful shades! I want to grab this soon! Thanks for the info! 🙂

    Highly impressed! Have to buy these. Have they been launched in India? If not, are any extra duties involved with the order of the pallette?

    • June 4, 2014 / 10:47 am

      Hey Aatiya, coastalscents only sells online via its website. I'm not sure if you'll have to pay extra duties, it all depends on size of the order and ultimately, Indian customs. When I was in India, I had ordered thrice from them and didn't have to pay any extra duties at time of delivery.

    i went to buy, but the shipping charges are more than the cost. 🙁 sad i cant buy it..

    • June 4, 2014 / 10:48 am

      Their shipping charges are too much compared to the prices of their products! Ordering only makes sense when you are ordering multiple items like brushes etc. along with the palettes. For a single product, $18 shipping doesn't make sense! I wish they would lower their prices.

    Checked their website. They don't ship to India 🙁

    • June 4, 2014 / 10:47 am

      Hey Daman, they do ship to India. I have ordered from them many times when I was in India.

        June 4, 2014 / 11:12 am

        Hey Ankita:

        Next time if you buying international product ..why don’t u ping all of us so that we can also add the product and shipping charges could be shared by all of us..

        • June 4, 2014 / 12:13 pm

          Hey Rey, I am now based in Japan so that won't be feasible. But thanks for the suggestion!

  9. June 4, 2014 / 10:11 am

    Oh wow! It’s like all three Naked palettes combined in one! ^_^

  10. June 4, 2014 / 10:17 am

    such an amazing palette! Such wonderful shades in one!

  11. June 4, 2014 / 10:44 am

    The bottom row seems to have some great shades and they are all in a similar vein to the UD Naked3

  12. June 4, 2014 / 10:46 am

    Its actually a steal for the price. The shadows are nicely pigmented too!

  13. June 4, 2014 / 10:51 am

    I am so impressed by the pigmentation….!!

    June 4, 2014 / 10:57 am

    I saw you review and the price was irresistible,so I went ahead and bought it. Please do a tutorial on your look…its ah-mazing!! Would have never guessed it was from this palette.

  15. June 4, 2014 / 11:12 am

    Nice review, I share the same concern like others and that is shipping charges. I own a coastal scent Original 88 Palette.

    Makes sense to order more products so shipping charges will not pinch much.

  16. June 4, 2014 / 11:41 am

    Ankita, I have to say Rose Gold looks extremely pretty on your eyes and your overall look is awesome.

  17. June 4, 2014 / 11:44 am

    Pink Gold looks so pretty and your eyes and overall look is simply awesome.

  18. June 4, 2014 / 11:45 am

    Oh Gosh! The Palette is So B’ful! But The Shipping Charges..Heart Breaking! :((

    You Look Gorgeous 🙂

  19. June 4, 2014 / 11:51 am

    With minimum shipping payment the pallete comes to worth Rs. 1400!

  28. June 4, 2014 / 1:55 pm

    This looks so similar to the Naked 3! Pretty and more affordable than that!

  29. June 4, 2014 / 3:20 pm

  41. June 5, 2014 / 6:36 pm

    Amazing palette, your recommendation makes it more tempting to buy. Have to wait for Black Friday Sale to try out products from Coastal Scents.

    June 5, 2014 / 10:02 pm

    Really pretty shades! But with that shipping charge, I have to give up the idea of buying it. 🙁

  43. June 5, 2014 / 10:43 pm

    I LOVE the color pay off! Impressive 🙂

    Hi Ankita,

    Like i said u look so gorgeous.. Love those pretty colors.. Please do a tutorial for this look..
    N Ankita i am also planning to buy from coastal scents. But i have a few queries.
    1. When u were in India, how long did they take to ship?
    2. Did u use the USPS or fedex, when u were in India?
    3. Do we have to pay extra custom duty?
    4. Can the payment be done by debit card? Coz i read somewhere that payment can be done by credit card only.

    I am really sorry for asking so many questions, But i did not know who else to ask. I have been trying to get answers for the past two hours searching over the net, but din get a clear idea. I remembered reading in one of ur blogs that u like coastal scents best for their quality, so thought i could ask u. Sorry for bothering u with so many questions.

    P.S: Even if anyone else reading this blog, read my comment and are able to help me out about same, i would be really grateful.

    Such an awesome review…very informative & incredibly helpful!! I now know where to go, when looking for a good, honest review 🙂 This just solidified my need for this pallete, however, I noticed they have unfortunately raised the price to $40!! They’re currently offering a 50% discount, but even so, I’m terribly disappointed, I missed out on the $10 deal 🙁 While we’re discussing cost, I have to agree, shipping is absolutely ridiculous, so I’m going to hold off for a bit, hoping I can either catch a sale, or until I have a need to order other products, and can justify spending that much on shipping. Again, awesome review…thank you!! Btw, I have subscribed to both your blog, and your YouTube channel 🙂
