MAC Star Violet vs Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Raisin Berry (Burgundy metallic shadows)
Burgundy (reddened purple) is to me a more fun shade to wear because it has a lot more cool red tones in it than a pure plum (more of a brown-purple), though the colors are close.
Two of my favorites are:
- MAC Star Violet (Veluxe Pearl) Shadow $15.00
- Coastal Scents Hot Pot in ME15 Raisin Berry $1.99 (yes!)
If you have to get one, of COURSE get the Coastal Scents. The quality is very good, the shadow is extremely pigmented and very metallic. In fact, this is one of the hot pots where the texture is similar to an Urban Decay shadow, which is always a great thing.
Star Violet is a softer burgundy with a brighter pink-brown shine. Because this is a Veluxe Pearl, it has that super fine-grained, almost-molten sheen, which is gorgeous. Raisin Berry is a deeper wine-burgundy, and equally metallic and rich. This also comes on a lot stronger than the MAC shadow, so take note if you prefer lighter pigmentation.
Both shades are absolutely beautiful, and work with just about all eye colors. They especially make blue-green eyes stand out, and would look fantastic over dark skins as well.
Perfect with a nude or pale pink mouth!
