Coastal Scents Jardin Bloom Palette Review

I’m slowly but surely working my way through all six of the Coastal Scents palettes that I ordered. Next in my lineup was the Jardin Bloom palette. Like all of the others, this palette is $12.95 with twelve shadows that are 15.6 grams/0.48 ounces. It has six mattes and six satin/shimmers. I wasn’t going to purchase this palette because it’s filled with cool toned neutrals like the Fairy Fuchsia palette but I decided to go ahead and buy both to see which I liked more. I’ll go ahead and say it wasn’t this one. I’ll give a list of pros and cons so you can see for yourself why this one just didn’t work for me. I’ll also include three looks I made using this palette.

Pros:

  • This palette is filled with cool toned neutrals which can be hard to find. Most brands stick with warm toned neutrals.
  • The shadows are easy to work with and blend well.
  • There is little fallout or kick up.
  • Paraben free.

Cons:

  • These shadows are not very pigmented at all. They can be built up but even then you’re not going to have much color.

*I’m not super talented at doing my eyeshadow. These looks are not tutorials in any way. They are just to show you the shades on my eyes and the color combos I put together.

I was so disappointed with the way this look turned out. The shadows worked great and blended well but you can’t see them.

  1. I used the cream shade (top row, end left) all over the lid and up to my brow bone.
  2. I used the mauve shade (middle row, end left) on the lid.
  3. I used the brown/gray shade (bottom row, second from the left) in my crease.

This was my favorite look I got from the palette. The green shades are really the stand outs.

  1. I used the cream shade (top row, end left) all over the lid and up to my brow bone.
  2. I used the light green (middle row, second from the right) on the lid.
  3. I used the dark green (middle row, end right) in my crease.
  4. I used the black (bottom row, end right) on the lower lash line.
  5. I used the silver (bottom row, end left) in my inner corner.

I actually really liked this look. It’s super neutral but sometimes that’s all you need.

  1. I used the cream shade (top row, end left) all over the lid and up to my brow bone.
  2. I used the light brown (top row, second from the right) on the lid. I also used some glitter from my NYX Cosmetics Cosmic Metals palette, review coming for that soon.
  3. I used the dark  tan (top row, end right) in the crease.
  4. I used a dark brown from another palette for my lash line.

This wasn’t a bad palette, it just didn’t inspire me like the others have. The only look I got from this that really made me happy was the green one but I don’t think that’s worth buying the whole palette for. The Fairy Fuschia palette just has more pigmentation and I feel you can get a wider range of looks. This palette is good if you like very minimal makeup and don’t want to spend a lot of time blending or putting looks together. As with all makeup, it comes down to preference and what you’re looking for. Does this palette interest you? Let me know! Thank you for reading and have a great day!
