Coastal Scents - Hot Pots: Sand Dune

Coastalscents.com's description:

"sandy grey hue with a smooth, satin finish"

Finish : Satin
Application :  Semi-Opaque

"A 1-inch metal pan that contains a highly pigmented eye shadow for multiple applications. Each Coastal Scents Hot Pot™ fits snugly into our Go Pod, 4 Piece, 12 Piece, and 28 Piece Empty Magnetic Palettes. These custom palettes contain magnets in a soft foam padding which attract the metal pan of the Hot Pot™. This allows you to completely customize your palette to create any look by simply adding interchangeable Hot Pots™ from our vast collection of shades, hues, and finishes."

My thoughts:

These Hot Pots from Coastal Scents are a lot like MAC's eyeshadows, and maybe even better. They all have a creamy, soft texture, and most of them are HIGHLY pigmented.

I would agree that the application of this particular shade is semi-opaque, and is a satin/shimmer finish. This shade is a VERY close dupe to Urban Decay's Virgin (I'll have them swatched side by side below.) Depending on what other colors you use it with, it seems like it changes colors. Sometimes its shimmery white, or a really light purple-brownish color. Its so weird, but I really like to use it for a transition shade or a highlight shade.
