I am sure that everybody knows about the new hot pots from coastal scents, but if you dont I will briefly explain. C.S. has come out with individual eyeshadows that are in pan form, similar to the pan shadows you get from MAC. They are around $5.00 a piece, and you can also get the empty palettes to put them in. They are the same size as the MAC shadows, and there are many MAC dupes for them. Enkore does a video telling us each dupe for each new hot pot, so check that out.
So, if you already have a palette from C.S. you may already have several of the colors that are now being sold individually in the new hot pot form. C.S. has provided us with a pdf format that has a picture of each of their palettes and then tells you which colors are now also being sold in hot pot form. http://www.coastalscents.com/cfwebstore/CrossReference.pdf Make sure to check this out before you purchase any duplicates and waste money.
If you really like a color and use it all up you can now replace it without buying an entire new palette. Or you can decide not to buy certain ones because you already have it in your palette.
This also answers the question I had, Were the new hot pots any better or worse than the palettes? Since, some of these colors are duplicates from the palttes I would imagine that they are about the same.
If you have any more questions leave them in the comment section below. I hope this helps some of you that are interested in the new hot pots.
