EOTD:Coastal Scents 88 Eyeshadow Palette-Christmas Tree

Merry X'mas!!!
It's the first time I'm using Coastal Scents 88 eyeshadow palettes though I've bought them for more than 6 months!! They are great palettes for playing colors, because of the large color spectrum. The most important thing is, they are quite cheap, around S$30 each, for 88 colors. But there is a lot of fallout with the majority of these shades, and blending of those shades is not easy. This is the trade off between quality and price.. :D Applying eyeshadow primers would make things much easier..
The colors I used for this EOTD are mainly the variations of green, from kelly green to dark green.
This look was inspired by Christmas tree - variations of green~~

Products I used:
  • Eyeshadow: Coastal Scents 88 pieces palette
  • Primer: Lunasol eyeshadow primer, Too faced shadow insurance
  • Eyeliner: Mac eyeliner gel
  • False lashes: Ardell  #110
  • Contact: Neo Glamour Gray
  • Makeup brushes: 
  • Lip: Mac Nude Rose(limited edition), Lunasol gloss #shining rose
  • Nail: Chanel #489

Swatches: Jill Stuart Jewel Crystal Eyes #101 Smoky Quartz

Jill Stuart Jewel Crystal Eyes #101 Smoky Quartz is a limited edition of this serious (Crystal Eyes), which was previously restricted to Taiwan market only and now it is available in other areas. I happened to get one from Taiwan (NT1300), which is my first eye shadow palette from Jill Stuart. ^ ^

The packaging is as gorgeous as always, which reminders me of my fairytale princess dream when I was a little girl. I love the Jill stuart packaging more than Anna Sui, although their styles are similar.

This quad is mainly a combination of pink and brown, I really love the combination. The highlight color is pinkish white, very pigmented, the liner color is glittery black. The two main colors are light plum pink and brown, maybe mud is more precise.

I've heard some drawbacks regarding the glitter fallout problem, people complains they always end up with glitters all over the face after application. I encountered this problem a bit but it doesn't effect my addiction to JS products, always try to use eyeshadow insurance/primer beforehand or use it wet to minimize the fallout problem.
