Because this was the very first "palette" I ever purchased, I thought it only fitting to review it first. To be honest, I bought this palette and have rarely opened it.
Upon deciding to create a beauty blog, I gave this a second look. And I am totally impressed. There are tons of colors to choose from: matte and shimmer. And WOW, are they pigmented. I especially love all the pink and purple colors. I will have to do some looks with this palette. Most of the eyeshadow are creamy and easy to blend. A primer and base are recommended for lasting color. The only negative thing I have to say about this palette is the packaging is shoddy and cheap- and leaves fingerprints galore. I highly recommend keeping a wipe handy for clean up.
I purchased my Original 88 palette from Ebay but you can purchase it here at Coastal Scents:
Mine was cheaper than the one from CS, though they are the same product. It's because I ordered direct from Hong Kong. Buying this way, you have to be careful because a lot of the time your makeup WILL arrive broken. It's still worth it if you want to save a little money.
