Coastal Scents Go Palette in Paris: Swatches & Review!

Today I have another Coastal Scents Go Palette to show you, this time in the "shade" Paris. Inspired by France, this compact product features 12 dime sized eyeshadows in mostly green, burgundy and brown tones. I like that this color scheme is very wearable, but not just browns and neutrals.


These eyeshadows are the same size as the 88 Palette shadows, but I like that the Go Palettes are more travel friendly and have a more concentrated theme.


The colors of this palette are all frosty in finish. Overall, I like the colors, but I wish a highlight shade (preferably a matte one) had been added, seeing as there is nothing in here I could use for that and would have to bring an extra highlight shadow if traveling. However, I do like the random bright blue included... definitely a great shade to pop on the lower lashline for some color.


These all swatched really well, as most Coastal Scents shadows do!


Here is a size comparison with my iPhone! As you can see, very compact and travel friendly!



Overall, I think this would be a great palette for anyone looking to step out from their everyday neutral shadows. These are very wearable, and I think even the most natural makeup wearers could use these to add a subtle twist to their everyday look. These retail at CoastalScents.com for $8.95 each, and come in seven different "cities". Click the links below to see my reviews/swatches of other Go Palette cities!
What are your thoughts on this palette?

  11. WOAH, that bright baby blue is gorgeous, stands out so much. But this palette is quite dark, so i'd rather something with more variation. But the Go Palettes are so pretty :)
