Products:
These eyeshadow fall under 5 finishes matte, satin, pearl, Shimmer and metallic. The 6 mattes are consistent in colour though slightly sheer they are build-able as well.

The 2 satin shades are very consistent in colour and application.

There are 6 matte shades in the palettes, #2 and #5 was a touch sheer but all of the shade where decent to buttery with application.

There was also 2 pearl shade which were very buttery in applying.

There are rest of the shimmer shades in this palette and none of them disappoint with some even being buttery in texture.

#7 and Inglot AMC Shine 07 are very similar in the pearl finish and shade.


#13 (burgandy) and #17 (berry) I could not find a match in standard eyeshadows because these shade in a matte formula are very rare. The only one I could think of is MAC's Deep Damson which is a touch lighter and redder to #13 and MAC's Fig. 1 which sheerer and paler then #17.


Verdict:
I rally surprised how much I like this palette, There a nice range of cool neutrals, peaches, and berry shades to giver you a range  of look. Bounce on the Venus dupe as it my favourite highlighter!



NOTE
I asked Costal Scents Directly about matches in there own line of hot pots but they made these shade custom for the palette.
Thank you for your inquiry. The shades found in all finished Coastal Scents palettes are custom to those products. Unless a diagram or list is provided in the product's description, we do not cross-reference palette shades to each other or to Hot Pots. This applies, as well, to concealer pots, palettes and quads.
