Few days back I swatched twelve of the hotpots from Coastal Scents herehttp://celebratingfeminity.com/2012/11/29/coastal-scents-hotpot-swatches/ , and each of them vary in texture and quality. Today I am reviewing the individual hot pot shade – S14. Unfortunately, while swatching them, I broke the shade called “Kiwi Green”, I am feeling really sad 😦 . Anyways, I collected the loose pigment and kept it in a small container. Its usable though.
The Shade and texture: A bluish purple which is on the lighter side, with a satin finish. It has shimmers, but they are very very fine, and lend a sheen to the shade which I love. This hot pot is a must have. It has no fall outs and very easy to blend.
The pigmentation: Its decently pigmented and the pigmentation can be built up. Though, one has to swipe the brush little firmly to pick enough color. Its not like, a light swipe picks enough color.
The Lasting: It lasts for three – four hours on me without budging when used with a primer. Without primer, I would not recommend to use this. I do not mind for the price and quality.
My say: I am happy with this shade. It pairs really well with shades of pink, gold, silver black and is all the more lovely when worn all by itself. A versatile shade which lets you to experiment. If you order from coastal scents, its a must buy. This is why I reviewed it first 🙂 . Awesome color, texture and finish. These are great for beginners as well as experts.
