Review | Swatches: Coastal Scents ‘Sunset Cruise’ Eye-Shadow Set

Hey Everyone!

Today I’ll be reviewing Coastal Scents ‘Sunset Cruise’ Eye-Shadow Quad. I got this eye shadow sample set along with my Coastal Scents88 original Palette. I love this cute little quad a lot than my original coastal palette :)!!

The eye shadow set named ‘Sunset Cruise’ and it has beautiful shades for night and day look! The packaging is pretty neat and simple with thick plastic cover.
The shades are,
  • Citron
  • Midas Gold
  • Barista
  • Gypsy Night

Citron- is light pale yellow matte shade. Citron is not at all chalky and very fine with smooth texture.

Midas Gold-is shimmery yellow shade. It is chalky much and super pigmented.

Barista-is lovely matte brown shade. It has smooth texture.

Gypsy Night- is deep dark black half-matte shade with mild gold shimmers. The gold shimmers are very subtle and I love this shade. It is not chalky and has good pigmentation too.

The quad itself super cute and handy to use! All the four shades are pretty decent and I love Gypsy Night and Barista shades personally. I love to create a Night-Outlook soon with this 2 shades first!

GOOD about Coastal Scents ‘Sunset Cruise’ Eye-Shadow Quad:
  • Pretty shades
  • Simple and elegant packaging
  • Good pigmentation
  • Handy to use and travel friendly
  • Lovely combinations of shades

NOT-SO-GOOD about Coastal Scents ‘Sunset Cruise’ Eye-Shadow Quad:
  • Midas Gold shade is too chalky
  • Citron and Barista is too light shades

Overall Verdict:

‘Sunset Cruise’ is a cute eye shadow quad with lovely shades and I love it! I can’t wait to experiment the quad :) and will try out some looks soon!

Rating: 4.5/5

  10. The shades when swatched are not as pigmented as in the container. Even I felt the Midas Gold was a disappointment. Helpful review :)
