Coastal Scents Hot Pot: Part 2

This is part 2 of my collection of the Coastal Scents Hot Pots which I purchased during their yearly sale for $0.99 USD each (originally $1.95 USD). You can view my thoughts from part 1 of my swatches/review here.

DESCRIPTION: A 1-inch metal pan that contains a highly pigmented eye shadow for multiple applications. Each Coastal Scents Hot Pot™ fits snugly into one of the Go Pod, 4 Piece, 12 Piece, and 28 Piece Interchangeable Palettes. These custom palettes contain magnets in a soft foam padding which attract the metal pan of the Hot Pot™. This allows you to completely customize your palette to create any look by simply adding interchangeable Hot Pots™ from the vast collection of shades, hues, and finishes. 

I’ve decided to categorize the Hot Pots based on:

Smoothness: How each pot felt to the touch.
Pigmentation: How pigmented each pot was in accordance to if it is opaque, sheer, etc.
Powdery: If the swatch looks powdery while applied.
Chalky: How chalky the hotpot felt to the touch.

*Note that Hot Pot consistency might vary from person to person and this is just my opinion of the ones I have purchased.

  • I came here from Reddit also and thank you for all your swatches. I read your previous post where you indicated whether the hot post was pigmented, smooth, or powdery. Could you give your opinion regarding that on these swatches? I don’t have any MAC or Makeup Geek shadows. I want to purchase CS first to see if I like them. There are SO MANY colors, I have a hard time believing that I couldn’t find all I need from them, if there enough that are good.

    • I was just about to ask the same thing as Rachel, almost word for word! Thank you SO much for these swatches in clear lighting and with labels!

    • Rachel, I used to be obsessed with and only wore MAC makeup. In my opinion, CS totally is on par. The most pigmented are the sparkle ones, the matte colors are more for blending as there’s not a lot of colour. 🙂
