Ebay 88 Pallete Review

Most of you will have heard of the Coastal Scents or BH Cosmetics palettes, there is a lot of love for them out there as the variety of colours is so large and the quality is supposedly great. I opted for the cheaper version and bought two palettes off eBay, the original and the warm palette. This is a review of the original palette.
You can see for yourself just how good the colour selection is of this. If you search "88 Palette" on eBay and arrange the results by cheapest first, you can usually snatch on of these up for less than a tenner. I was lucky and managed to get mine for about £7, which works out at less than 8 pence per eyeshadow. They pigmentation and just general quality of these shadows will shock you! They're incredible, in addition to that they have a great lasting power!

The only real downside to this palette is that the shadows themselves are quite small, about the size of a penny, but this can only really be expected when there are so many of them for such a good price. The other thing is that I've heard of people finding the casing very poor. I don't know if I have just been lucky, but I've had no problems with mine as of yet. This palette is perfect for anybody just starting out in makeup who can't afford to be buying new eye shadows for every new look they want. For me though although I love the quality of this palette and there are a lot of great colours, there are probably about ten or more shades in this I will probably never use, such as the red and bright pinks.
Let me know if there are any products you'd like me to review,
