Coastal Scents Creative Me #1 Palette Review

I love this palette.  The colors are very vibrant and pigmented.  Some are smoother than others such as the greens and blues.  I have labeled the colors as they are on the Coastal Scents web site.  Here are the swatches without primer underneath:

Without Flash
I initially bought this palette for CM07.  I figured I would buy the whole palette of colors since the single shadow would cost more than half of the palette itself with shipping.  I have read reviews that said that the greens and blues were the the same color, but they are NOT.  One blue is cool while the other is warm.  The same goes for the greens, CM11 is more turquoise.

This is a quick look I created just to show some of the colors on the eye and I used TFSI for the primer:
Strictly CM09

In between CMO7 and CM09 is a thin layer of CM10

There is a thin line of CM06 between CM07 and CM08

I added CM11 to the inner corner of my eye

I then finished the look with a champagne shadow as my highlight and NYX's black eyeshadow in the outer corner.  I also used wet n wild's creme eyeliner for the cat eye.
This palette is definitely worth cost and is a lot of fun to play around with.

This is CM11.  I got so many compliments from strangers when I wore it out that night.
