review on coastal scents neutral palette

I love blog hopping so I have seen a lot of ladies raving over the 120 makeup palette from ebay ( I'm just waiting for this one to arrive..*evil laughter* ). I got really curious about makeup palettes so I browsed around and came across the neutral palette of cs ( coastal scents ). I asked ate jheng for recommendations and she suggested the neutral palette and also the120 palette from ebay. Yes im really addicted to makeup so I got giddy and searched where i can buy it fast. Good thing one seller from ebay philippines sells the coastal scents neutral palette at a good price ( i computed the total if i buy from cs and its much expensive than the ebay phil. price ) so i quickly pressed the buy it now button and i got it the following day. (Because I can't wait to try the palette -  so I met the seller at her about excitement!)

love it..
- the dark colors are really pigmented
- easy to carry around
- worth it for the price
- nice professional packaging
- very beautiful when used with a good eye primer

hate it..
- the light colors didn't show up at all ( like 50 % opacity )
- some are powdery / chalky
- easy to crack

final say.. its a must buy for those who don't own any neutral palette ( like me ) or dark shades. i prefer using mac eyeshadows for the base / light shades. Overall, it is not in anyway similar to mac but performs well for the price especially the dark shades. the product is perfect for outer v, crease applications.

( the colors are labeled based on its row and column number for easy reference and im going to use the label for my eotds . ;))
