Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette Part 3: Swatches & Review

Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette Tray 3 Daylight
Part 3, and Tray 3 of the Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette review. You can read the review of formula review and the colour of the Tray 1 and Tray 2 in the links.

Tray 3 contains what I refer to a desaturated shade, it doesn't make them less gorgeous but over all the colours are less vibrant or less saturated then the first two trays.

I will be swatching and review this tray starting from the top left corner to the bottom right corner in columns.

This one had a skin on the surface of the pan but once to got through that is was the semi sheer shade you see in the swatch.



Verdict: 
Tray 3 does have somewhat issue with sift opaque matte shades so that on bare skin applied sheer. I also found the excessive number of shade like in the Yellow column of this palette where the shade are so close together in tone it's rather hard to tell them apart. I personally consider this to be the most wearable colours in this tray to incorporate in daily looks however. ;) 


FINAL THOUGHTS! 

This 252 palette has a fantastic array for shades to work with in all the colour spectrum and texture/finishes. I kind of wish there was more flesh tone shades in this palette for blending looks into skin then some of the shades that where almost repeated in the set. But if you like colours this is the mother load!!!
