Coastal Scents - Hot Pots: Barista

Coastalscents.com's description:

"warm brown hue with a smooth, matte finish"

Finish : Matte
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 say that the application of this particular shade is semi-opaque and I agree it has a very matte finish. I usually use this in the crease, or on the lower lash line. I got this shade because it reminded me of Urban Decay's Buck, but Buck is much more cool toned, but they still are pretty similar (comparison below).
