Coastal Scents Creative Me Palette #1

photo courtesy www.coastalscents.com

Hey everyone! If you've seen my Fierce Pink & Purple eye tutorial, you know these aren't your everyday shadows. The shades in the Coastal Scents Creative Me Palette #1 are some of the brightest, most pigmented shades I've ever used. This magnetic palette (filled with shadows) costs $21.95. It also holds Coastal Scents Hot Pots- and if you want, you can pick up these "Creative Me" shades individually. I enjoy how the palette comes with a big mirror and keeps all of my brightest shadows available in one place. Here's a look at the swatches- they correspond with the rows in the palette... (I used the CS Eye Poxy 2 Primer under these)





In terms of creating looks with these colors, so far I've only done a tutorial using the shades in the pink/purple color family (minus the red). I definitely want to do more tutorials using these shades- but I want to do what YOU want to see. So in the comments section please let me know what color combinations you'd like to see a tutorial on. While they're split into obvious color families in the pictures and in the palette- I'd like to switch things up... maybe using the pink & the aqua for example. Anyway- just wanted to give you a closer look at the colors! Thanks for visiting my blog today, and please don't forget to answer the latest "Question of the Week" in the sidebar!

  1. Hi Emily,

    I have the Coastal Scents 88 Original and Shimmer palettes, in your opinion would I be better off checking out the Hot Pots or going for something like the 88 Warm palette?

    Thanks :)

  4. Hi Emily,
    Blues and teals make a great combination, specially in brown eyes like yours (and mine LOL). Maybe you could do something like that for us? Thanks for all your tips!

  5. I never really know how to use yellow because it's so extreme. Also, I never know what to do with red because it always seems to make me look like i've been crying if I try to use it like I would normally use a more neutral color. So...red and yellow!!

  8. Wow those colors are crazy! Lol Looking forward to see any tutorials using this palette.

    And I think someone here already mentioned a Christmas inspired look. Emily, could you do a tutorial like that? That's be great. Maybe a little closer to the holidays. Let's get Halloween out of the way first :p

  10. Hi Emily!

    These shadows are super bright, loving it! I'd like to see something with maybe the oranges or reds and purple. A fall/harvest sort of look perhaps.


    Thanks so much! <3

  13. Mardi Gras inspired....purple, green and gold/yellows would look cool. I have had this palette for over 3 months and I haven't used it yet.
    I also bought around 30 other hot pots and just sampled a look ONCE with those (neutral look of course). I'm overwhelmed w/ colors. eeek?!
    My mind goes blank, like visual overload or something. lol
