The Truth About ‘Revealed’, Revealed: 5 / 5 Stars

Okay, so just by looking at the name you can tell that this is an imitation Naked palette. But honestly, it’s a pretty good imitation. The Revealed palette by Coastal Scents comes with 20 eye shadow shades and is available through Birchbox.com. Each of the Revealed palettes comes with a variety of shades, including pinks, browns, purples, and grays. Below is an image of the palette I tried, Revealed 2:

Color Choice: I am a huge fan of the colors included in the Revealed 2 palette. My one complaint with Naked palettes is that there are way too many browns and not enough pinks and purples. Coastal Scents fulfills my need for girly colors with this palette. Plus, I can honestly say that every single color in this palette is gorgeous. Because there are so many color families included, you can create a wide variety of looks with just one palette. If you aren’t a fan of pinks and purples, the other Revealed palettes might be more to your liking.

Longevity: These eye shadows last just as long, if not longer, than Urban Decay’s Naked eye shadows. I can put these on for school at 8am and they’ll still be in place when I get home from work at midnight. Unless you’re in some pretty strenuous conditions, these eye shadows will last all day (or night) long.

Value: The Naked palettes come in with a hefty price tag of $54. Through Birchbox.com, Coastal Scents offers the Revealed palette for $19.95. Less than $20 for a palette of beautiful shades that are just as nice as Naked eye shadows? Hell yeah I’ll take one!

The Verdict: Hands down, 5 out of 5 stars from me. Coastal Scents has really done us a huge favor by offering Revealed, a fabulous palette at a fabulous price. Even if you’re not a Birchbox subscriber, you can still get your hands on one today at Birchbox.com.
