Coastal Scent’s Revealed2 palette is a cute conglomeration of 20 eyeshadows, with 12 of them being exact duplicates for the shades found in Urban Decay’s Naked3 palette. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to UD’s version, this is it! To see the full swatch comparison between Revealed2 and Naked3, you’re welcome to see the previous post I did here.
When it comes to pigmentation, I did not have high expectations for this palette at all – mainly due to bad experiences with past palettes from Coastal Scents (ahem … 88 palette, I’m looking at you!). However, I was pleased this palette proved all my qualms wrong and instead it has been impressing me each time I’ve used it! The shades apply well, blend easily and they don’t end up looking like one color on your eye at the end of the day (bonus!).
Not only are you getting 12 of the exact dupes from Naked3 here, but you’re also getting 8 additional shades, too. Can’t beat that for the price ($20)! I do feel like three shades on the bottom row are VERY similar to one another though, but that’s the only negative I could find (see #12, 14, 15). Besides that minor detail, I find this to be a great range of colors in a compact, sleek case that is most certainly worth the spend. Have you tried this palette? Do you own it? How do you feel about it?
