Coastal Scents 88 Mirage Palette-Review,Photos+Look


Coastal Scents 88 Mirage Palette
Result: The word "Mirage" is French and means "to look at or to wonder at". The Coastal Scents 88 Mirage Palette was launched in February 2011. The palette since then has not been a lot in the lime light but it is a successful CS product. The only reason it is not well known, perhaps, is the success ratio of other Coastal Scents 88 palettes, especially, the 88 warm and shimmer palette. But when i was shopping for a palette for myself I wanted something that suits my complexion and different textures.
The packaging is good, like all other CS products. The kit comes in a stiff card box with a plain black kit inside. The kit is secured in a sheer plastic covering. It is the size of a netbook and looks like a professional salon makeup kit. There's a mirror at the center of the lid and two eye shadow applicators, but I wouldn't use the applicators as they are not good quality. There's a sheet of hard plastic protective filter as well, placed over the eye shadows. Remove the filter and it unveils 88 eye shadows all in different formulations.

There are matte, shimmer, glitter and satin textured eye shadows. The great thing about this palette is that a lot of the shadows come from other CS palettes. There a lot of neutrals from the warm palette, a lot of blues, greens and oranges. You will not find bright yellows, pinks or other colors like that. This kit is all earthy tones. 

Why I particularly chose the Mirage palette is because, the colors go perfectly with my skin tone. As I have a medium complexion, bright striking colors don't really suit me. The colors are very beautiful, my favorite is the mermaid bluish shade from the right. The application is smooth, they blend well, the texture is lovely and all the shadows produce color. 

The only issue I have is with the quantity. The pans are the size of an American dime, 61 grams in total and if you you play with makeup very often, you will soon run out of content from the palette.

Rating: 4/5





Price: $24.95 on CoastalScents.com



Available at:

Conclusion: This palette is perfect for those who love earthy tones and are medium or slightly tanned complexion. I would use every shade in this palette. Great for party and wedding makeup. I highly recommend the Mirage palette over all others from the CS 88 line.
