Product | The Revealed 2 palette is the sequel to the Reveal palette that was released in November 2013
Pigmentation | The pigmentation of the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette has improved from the original Reveal palette. The black shade marked (10B) in the Revealed Palette review was improved in this palette marked R2B10. The matte shades provide a lot better coverage than the first palette. The shimmer and glitter shades are not as flakey and gives a lot better coverage. All the shades are a lot more opaque.
Application | The shades in this palette are very smooth and apply very opaque. The glittery shades are not as flakey as expected and stick to the brush for good application.
Texture | The texture varies in this palette but all the application is consistent. When swiping the shadows the shadows tend to clump up however the pigment sticks to the brush. The texture is soft and creamy and applies very smooth.
Longevity | The pigmentation is very opaque and pigmented however the shades do tend to fade over a 4 hour time. After 4 hours I experienced lighter coverage. When I applied with a cream primer, the eyeshadows remained vibrant and true for over 6 hours.
