Coastal Scents Palette Swatches

Getting into makeup, I've been very happy with the choices I've been making so far when it comes to purchases.  There has been some screw ups as far as application goes but I'm enjoying the practice.  In a recent beauty haul video I talked about my new 26 Color Eyeshadow Blush Combo from Coastal Scents and at the time, I 'd just got it and had only swatched a few of the colors.  Now, I've had the chance to actually use more than half of the shadows and all of the blushes and at this point I think it's safe to say that I love it. 

The shadows are highly pigmented and it takes little effort to get the true colors to show on your lids as they do in the pan.  The darkest blush of the bunch I thought would be too dark for my skin tone but I've learned that if I place it further back on my cheekbone and blend it well instead of right on the apples of my cheeks, it lends a great blushing effect.  The colors are beautiful and every color in this palette is work friendly and as you can tell in the pic above I've been playing in it alot.  Here are the swatches:

Natural Light, No Flash 
First Row of Shadows
