I purchased these two products from Coastal Scents a couple of days ago and I wanted to do a quick review for you. Coastal Scents offers great quality makeup for really cheap prices which is absolutely fantastic. I've purchased from them around 5-7 times and every single time i've gotten my stuff in less than a week, so the shipping is really fast.
Heres what the two products look like! The packaging isn't crazy amazing quality but its drug store makeup quality which is still really nice. The reason I like Coastal Scents so much is because if you're beginning in makeup or just want to extend your collection since their products are fairly cheap you can try things out - like a contour palette that you would find at Sephora for around $60+.
The display is absolutely stunning! I could look at the Contour palette for hours, its so beautiful! Nothing came broken or cracked, which I'm always scared of. The colors I mainly bought this palette for is the highlight colors. When you have acne scars and acne wearing a highlighter can be tough because most have glitter/shimmer in them which can make your acne stand out more. All of these colors are 100% matte which is my favorite. I don't really like shimmer on my face.
And here are some swatches of the colors (in order of how they appear in the palette) The first pink shade in the top row actually reminds me of a Nars blush that I use every single day! I'm really excited about all of them because they're all really pigmented and would look amazing on a ton of different skin tones. All of the shades besides the pink ones could be used as beautiful shadows, too!
Right now i'm using the Studio fix concealer from mac and i've been wanting to try out some new concealers because honestly i'm just bored of that one and I don't really fancy mac as much as I used to. I chose this camo quad because it has four different colors you can mix together to create the perfect shade for your skin. I got mine in medium, I wasn't sure if I needed medium or light and i'm pretty glad I got medium because I feel like it fits my skin tone really well and with summer coming up i'm probably going to get a little darker. All the colors blend really well but the white was a little harder to blend out. Once it did blend, it was so pretty! It would look amazing blended out into the inner corners or even under the eyes to contour.
I'm absolutely in love with my Contour palette and Camo quad. I'm really excited to start using them and show you all what they look like! Coastal Scents is having a sale right now on all their palettes I believe so if you've ever wanted some good quality shadows or blushes nows the time! Let me know if you plan on purchasing anything from Coastal Scents so we can gush over it together.
