Hey Kathi,
I was pleasantly surprised by this collection too as the shades looks more bright and interesting than the usual gradational stuff. Yumeko also posted a pic of the catalog, do check it out!

Hi Haru
Ok sure looking forward to your next work trip photo, keep it coming ya :) you took really beautiful pictures.

Haru Jie, thanks for your catalogue here too. would like to seek your opinion on Coastalscents..it seems a lot of youtube makeup guru like to use this palette for its highly affordable price of $20 USD + for 88 color..so good to be true? but i am not sure how good are they are? wonder if you own any of CS palette and if not, what is actually stopping you? is it not pigmented enough or u heard not so good review?

thanks! would like to ask your advice to see worth buying.

Hi Pinky,

I think the best and most detailed review of the Coastal Scent 88-palette is by Jojoba so do check out her blog.

Personally, I would never buy one of these palettes. The amount of product is just overwhelming and the size of the palette is just too big for my liking. The Tarte holiday palettes are hefty as well (check out my posts on Tarte Treasure Chest) but they are easier to manage than a palette with 88 shades. The Coastal Scents palettes may be cheap but the reviews are very mixed. Some people like them, some people think they are lousy. They are made in China, which explains the low price. Tarte also makes its palettes in China but I have more faith in Tarte as I have been using their products for a long time.

Hi Haru,
Thanks for the review and the links you sourced for me. Yeah, I also saw mixed reviews to 88 palette and hence in a fix. I think comparing 88 to Tarte, the latter also wins more heart. I love Tarte treasure chest too and is using it since you recommended in your blog!
