Coastal Scents Blush Palette ($16.95) consists of ten blushes–four matte and six shimmer–and are about the size of an extra large eyeshadow. It’s housed in a sleek matte black case, and it’s about nine inches in length. The palette has a nice variety of colors, ranging from warm pinks to shimmery peach to magenta fuchsia. I would say that the majority of the colors are warmer rather than cooler, if that makes a difference for any of you. Each blush is pigmented, and of course, the matte ones run chalkier than a shimmer one, but I didn’t find them to be unexpectedly chalky or unusable. The mattes are smooth and well-textured with nice pay off.
