Coastal Scents Go Palette in London: Swatches & Review!

Today I'm reviewing another one of the Coastal Scents Go Palettes. This is the London inspired palette, and is one of my favorites of all the cities. I like that it has both brighter and neutral colors!


The eyeshadow size is the same as in the 88 palettes. However, 88 colors can be a little overwhelming to choose from sometimes. I like that the Go Palettes are a little more "specific" in color options.


The left side of this palette is frosty, while the right side is almost completely matte. My favorite colors are the 1st and 3rd shades on the bottom row (dark teal and burgundy). The burgundy shade is almost exactly the same as MAC Sketch eyeshadow!


And now for swatches! I didn't have a hard time with a single shadow in this particular palette.


For size reference, here is the Go Palette next to my iPhone! Pretty small, huh?



Overall, I think this palette is great for people who like mixing neutrals with a bit of color. These retail at CoastalScents.com for $8.95 each, and come in seven different "cities". Click the links below to check out my reviews/swatches of other Go Palette cities!
What are your thoughts?

  4. I had a hard time deciding between the London palette and the Beijing palette, I got the beijing instead for something different. Can you do a tutorial using the beijing or the cairo palette?

  5. need the Beijing palette for my upcoming vacation. Thought I could use the Clinique shadow palette I got with a giveaway, but that eyeshadow is extremely disappointing.

  7. I also have the London palette, but for some reason, the third column of colors were horrible and had no pigmentation. The others were nice, so maybe each one is a little different? Great swatches btw :)

  10. I own the London and I just got the moscow in, I was thinking of ordering all of them, For anyone who is going to order some they have a good sale right now 35% off eyeshadows. Do you think it is worth ordering them all?

  12. I'll have to pick some palettes up! The colors are very pretty. I agree about the 88 palettes. Everytime I want to use it, I never know which colors to use, so I usually just use it when I try out a tutorial i've seen. :)
