Coastal Scents 88 palettes: *NEW - Metal Mania* or Warm?

A week ago I was browsing through Coastal Scents' website & saw a new finished palette: 88 Metal Mania. This palette reminded me of the 88 Warm Palette. Only difference is that I never thought much of the 88 Warm Palette from looking at pictures of the palette. I thought the 88 Warm Palette had way too many light colours & too many browns, which didn't interest me at all. It seemed like a boring palette to me, to be honest.

Fast forward to a week ago. When I saw the 88 Metal Mania Palette, I fell in love.
It has the right amount of highlight, gold, brown, black, green, purple/plum, red, & orange shades. When I do a neutral eye, there's this plum-brown eyeshadow that I usually grab instead of just a brown eyeshadow.
The 88 Metal Mania Palette doesn't have colours that are too bright, so they're great for everyday wear. But if you want to use this palette for a night-out look, there are enough colours to experiment with to pull off a smokey eye or some other non-neutral look as well!
Now even though I still want the 88 Piece Makeup Palette, I have my eye on the Metal Mania Palette as well.

Note: I do not own the palettes but I've heard rave reviews about the 88 Piece Makeup Palette & the 88 Warm Palette, seen swatches, & viewed videos in which the eyeshadows from these palettes have been used.

From looking at the pictures, which 88 palette do you prefer: the new Metal Mania or Warm?

I saw a review on Pursebuzz on the metal manias, and the color payoff is supposed to be awesome, but you should expect a bit of fall out. I owned the matte/shimmer combo palette, and found that the dark colors had great payoff and staying power, but with the light shades, you didn't see much difference between one shadow to the next.

PS. Thanks for coming to my blog! I am from Mumbai, India originally, and I'm Maharashtrian. :)

Hey girl, best of luck with my giveaway! Thanks for entering. As for the coconut oil as a makeup remover, I actually had a change of heart. It wasn't easy to take off the Fluidline and w-proof mascara, so I don't recommend it. I have used Mary Kay eye makeup remover before, and its AWESOME. I'm currently using a generic one by Target and its effective, but dries my eyes out, so I don't give it my stamp of approval. If you find something good, lemme know, or do a review on it!
