Coastal Scents Hot Pot: Part 1


Over the past couple of months I’ve collectively purchased 84 Coastal Scents Hot Pots during their yearly sales for $0.99 USD each (originally $1.95 USD). I’ve decided to break the post up into 2 different parts so it doesn’t get over whelming. I wanted to try the Hot Pots before any MAC/MUG eyeshadows (I don’t own any – can’t compare quality) and I can say I’m quite impressed although some are a hit or miss, but they’re still beautiful for the price nonetheless. Each shadow arrived individually packaged therefore making it easier to manage and insert them into the magnetic palette anyway I desired. Each Hot Pot is 1-inch (26mm) in diameter and contain roughly 1.5g/0.05oz of product and they come in matte, shimmer and satin finishes.

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 found most shadows to be pigmented (pictures shown without primer + finger swatches), easy to blend, long lasting and not much fallout. Not to mention it’s little to no cost and they have a wide variety of colours from neutrals to brights to darks – there’s something for everyone! Only downside is that it can only be ordered online but basically shipped worldwide.

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.

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