I cannot even tell you how badly I wanted the Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky Palette. When I finally purchased it, I felt like a child on Christmas waiting for it to arrive on the mail. Now that I’ve had it for a good three months and got to play with it a bit, I’m ready to share my thoughts.
First off, by looking at it, I think this palette is beautiful. It invites me to play with it. Most of the shades lean towards the cool side, which is what I prefer.
In terms of the quality and pigmentation of the shadows, like with the other Revealed palettes, they are hit or miss. Most of them are decent, but there are about four shades that are simply awful – grainy, chunky, and non-pigmented. By the way, you can watch this video where I review the palette and swatch all the colors 😉
As you can tell by the swatches though, most of the shades are pretty good.
Now, the verdict: did the Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky Palette became a favorite? Sadly, no. In all it’s beauty, I find it still cannot beat the Coastal Scents original Revealed. At least for me. That palette solves all my problems, I swear!
Here’s a look I created with the Smoky palette. Watch the tutorial.
In conclusion, if you go to parties, clubbing, or events often, this palette with be your best friend. The amount of shadows you get for the price is worth the investment, even though a few of them are flops.

One last word. This post is not sponsored. I purchased all my Coastal Scents Revealed palettes with my own money and I’m very glad I did! I have the original Revealed, the Revealed 2, and now the Smoky, and they are all staples in my makeup collection.
