Coastal Scents Hot Pot Shadows Description/Review

The Coastal Scents Hot Pot Shadows are individual powder shadow pans that come in multiple shades and finishes. Each hot pot pan contains 1.5 grams (0.05 ounces) of product and is made in China.

The formula of the shadows is really good. Obviously, each shade is different but all the shades I have tried are amazing.. They are available in different levels of pigmentation, so make sure you purchase the ‘opaque’ ones and not the ‘sheer’ ones.

I have multiple posts on the Coastal Scents Hot Pot shadows and I will link them all at the end!

Each individual Hot Pot Shadow costs $2.62 AUD ($1.95 USD) and can be purchased from Coastal Scents Online (link at end)

Now let’s get into the shades and swatches babes!!!

    Nice swatches. How does coastal scents compare to BH Cosmetics formula? I’m asking because I’ve heard that they are made by the same company with the same formula and sold under different names (Private Labelled).

    1. Reply

      Hey beautiful. I haven’t tried BH cosmetics shadows but I do analyse cosmetic formulas and I can tell you right now, yes It is a private labelled formula. Other brands with the same or very similar formula (the only difference is usually a slight rearrangement or slight ingredient change aka, some will have 1-2 added ingredients) are Morphe, juvias place and makeup revolution, among more but that’s at the top of my head . I am planning on writing a full blog post about this private labelled formula where I will explain it and compare. Basically, it is a very efficient formula that works, but yes a range of brands do use it(again with slight changes). In regards to eyeshadow formulas there is only so much you can do, but brands like too faced add beneficial ingredients such as Cocoa extract, where’s the private labelled formula is just simple and meant for function. Hope this helps beauty xx

      1. Oh yeah. It helps a lot. I knew about Morphe, but not Juvias Place or Makeup Revolution. Crown Brushes would be another one and basically whenever you see that signature black case. Lol.

      2. Pretty much sums it up lol! I like the formula, it works well for me but there’s no denying it’s private labelled. I’ve still got to go through palettes and shadows by other brands to see who else has the formula. What they do is change little bits in the formula so it’s not as obvious. They also don’t explain that there is a base formula and pigment list. They condense the base formula and pigment list into a paragraph without a space, so when you look at it it won’t look familiar because the pigment list (which is different for all brands, because they have different shades, colours etc) “hides” the base formula. So at first glance, you see a long ingredient list that’s unfamiliar but when you break down the list into base and pigment sections, you see that the base formula is very short (about 8-11 ingredients) . It contains ALL the ingredients that are in every shade no matter what colour. They are the ingredients that make the shadow work aka make it function and be perform like it does. A product gets its characteristics from the ingredients in the base formula list. Then pigments are added for colou. SOOO while the pigment list will be different between brands, the base formula is almost always identical (I have highlighted this in a word document and have screen shotted a photo for my blog which sums up what I just said in one pic. I’ll see if I can upload here) Also, when you plug one PR shadow formula into google to search for similar ones , it’s less likely to pick a similar one up when the formula is slightly rearranged. Heaps of different chemists obviously make the formula and it is always made in China and has parabens in the formula all, like always has parabens. There’s so much information I have picked up about it but there is also so much that I still don’t know,aka the logistics of how it’s sold and who made it. I wish I could know tho hahah!! As I said its a very efficient eyeshadow formula and it works well, I have no problem with it at all but these are the facts lol! Companies who are start up are most likely to use this formula because they can get it manufactured in China for cheaper, and because they have less costs for ingredients. Beneficial ingredients and better ingredients are more expensive = higher manufacturing cost. Parabens are cheaper than the preservatives ingredients MANY MANY products use as a substitute for parabens. If your unaware, studies have linked parabens to endocrine disturbance and other things, so it was deemed risky and dangerous officially which sparked lots of controversy in the beauty world, like tipped companies on their head haha. Public attention was crazy. After that, brands started using less dangerous preservatives and stopped using parabens. The ones that used parabens had to reformulate the product and get the parabens out. Parabens are the strongest, powerful cosmetic preservative so companies sometimes need to add 2 or 3 preservative ingredients to keep the product well, which increases cost and they also have to pay a chemist to reform ate = money. It was basically a mess for companies and it would of cost a lot of money to take parabens out. Not every brand can afford to reformulate so they continue to use parabens. Sooo many things go into this it’s crazy!!
        I will say, juvias place is the only PR shadow formula I have seen so far that has custom packaging. Packaging also costs more and remember brands legit produce thousands of thousands if not millions of products, so it all adds up in the end $$$$$$
        Brands like Morphe and MUR do not want to cut profit for new more expensive, custom packaging, and juvias place do.
        This contributes to the low cost of the product, if it’s cheaper to make it’s cheaper to buy.

        What I’ve learnt is… If a company can cut cost on their end, they WILL. It’s not that it’s a bad thing because at the end of the day they are a business and I hate to say but sometimes they are not here to please us, just make some mulllla! If a company has to spend some money to save themselves and their sales they will most of the time, depending on the brand.

        I have to stop typing now because I could go on for days on end, and I’m sorry for the passage but I haven’t talked to anyone about this because no one is ever interested lol!

      3. That’s an uncomplete version, I got a new laptop and the word document one is on that , so I did up a quick example.

      4. here is a list broken up

        this is a JP Saharan pallete vs morphe 35F…. almost Identical even pigments

      5. I find it pretty interesting. Like u said, there is a limit on how many ways you can make an eyeshadow, but the subtle way they try to disguise the formula, and how crazy the difference in price is based on labelling and hype. Everyone knows corporations do it, but you see it so clearly with cosmetics and eyeshadow palettes

      6. Exactly!!!!! There is only so many ways you can do shadow , but all other companies that don’t use this generic formula do have very different ingredient lists, aka the Kylie, too faced, jeffree, etc etc palettes.
        The thing with eyeshadows too is, they are only used for function. They don’t need to contain any beneficial ingredients that actual do good things to the skin because they are used on the tiny eye area if you know what I mean. What companies also do is trick us because they are not required to disclose the exact concentration of ingredients in the formula. So some eyeshadow formulas have all these beneficial ingredients present in such low concentrations that they don’t do much at all, but they do make the ingredient list look better and therefore the company look better.
        They do have a method in their madness, but after analysing formula after formula and becoming familiar with cosmetic chemistry you start to catch on to it!

        I find it SO interesting too!! Sometimes to understand cosmetic chemistry you also have to understand how business works because companies do cut corners and they are sly haha!!

      also at this point I dont even know who owns the PL formula. I think that it might of been created WAY WAY WAY WAY back in the day (and I’m talking WAY back) and now it’s made its way to be the most common private labelled eyeshadow formula. I haven’t been able to pin point the actual owner lol!!

    Also it’s so funny how it will stain the skin for days on end, but comes off the lips within a few hours lmfao!!

      Omg I know it’s literally impossible! When I first got them, I went through page by page and added ones I wanted, then realised the total was wayyyyy over what I could afford at the time so I started getting smaller orders and going back to get the rest. Such a large range!!
