Hasta La Costa Baby

Wet ‘n’ Wild Hasta La Costa Baby Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad ($2.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad for summer. It included a peachy-brown, white gold, violet, and teal. I’m always rooting for these types of palettes, since they’re fun colors and affordable, but too often I’m left wanting as I was with this one.

Hasta La Costa Baby #1

Hasta La Costa Baby #1 is a medium-dark beige with warm, peachy undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was blendable and didn’t sheer out too much on bare skin. The color wore well for seven hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to be "powerfully pigmented" with a "butter-soft" texture that "glides on like a dream." The majority of the eyeshadows are on the drier side, sometimes feeling loosely pressed and other times more chalk-like and truly dry to the point where a primer became a must for getting good adhesion and wear out of the formula. Most of the matte shades were quite pigmented, and I found they actually applied better to bare skin than some of the shimmers, which often appeared faded and muted in practice compared to how they appeared in the pan. The pigmentation varied from decent to mostly opaque depending on the shade, and the wear was typically between five and seven hours on me.

I did not keep most of the previously-released trios and palettes from the brand as mine, but when I compared 2018's formula to the prior one (and mine are likely five or more years old), the previous formula was far better for their shimmers--slightly more slip, creamier in feel, and typically more pigmented and true-to-color on the lid. I think the mattes, overall, are improved as they are more blendable and pigmented on the lid.

Hasta La Costa Baby #2

Hasta La Costa Baby #2 is a soft, white gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had good color coverage, not quite opaque, that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer or applied over primer. The texture was soft, smooth, and not at all powdery, so it was easy to apply and blend out without worrying about fallout. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Hasta La Costa Baby #3

Hasta La Costa Baby #3 is a medium-dark purple with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat unevenly on bare skin, as the texture seemed a little dry and loose, which resulted in more troublesome application. It needed primer or to be applied using a dampened brush, which helped to combine the powder and to adhere it onto my lid, though it always had a more faded appearance on my lid compared to the color in the pan. The color stayed on well for seven hours on its own.

Hasta La Costa Baby #4

Hasta La Costa Baby #4 is a slightly muted, medium blue-leaning teal with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was a little drier to the touch and prone to fallout during application if I wasn’t very careful. It had good color coverage that applied evenly for the most part and blended out without much effort. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading on me.

I’ve been seeing in YT reviews for this that the purple shade is a weak one. Very disappointing, because that #4 teal shade practically matches my eye color to a tee! Yeah, my eyes are basically the color of a “Go” traffic light. That teal would look beautiful paired with the teals in UD Beached!

Nancy, it looks extremely similar to CP Slayfarer, which I just got! I haven’t actually worn it out of the house yet but the pigmentation is really nice, I can recommend it!

Clever name. Always nice not to sound like trolling the Urban Dictionary for s.t. edgy, sexed. When I saw a Pat sidebar ad that said SNATCH LUST! Almost croaked. Mother, I find that a tad undignified, for the grande dame of color cosmetics.

I was rather surprised about some of the PML names. I guess I thought she was a lot classier than that and expected her shadow names to reflect that. I am sure she must be the final say in what shade is named what. I was hopeful that the brand wouldn’t succumb to the current trend of smut, vulgarity and drug references. Having said that, her products are mostly excellent and so I guess she feels that she can take some leeway.

Eh, a B average for a drugstore palette ain’t half bad! The color scheme doesn’t interest me very much but always nice to see decent stuff at drugstore prices.
