Coastal Scents Haul

Hello Everyone!


*Disclaimer: This posts contains PR Samples from Coastal Scents. Thank you Coastal Scents for sending these products for review. All opinions  are 100% my own. Product and brand information provided by coastalscents.com

I'm super excited to share today's post! It's a makeup haul! What better way to start the month off than to talk about makeup? I recently had the opportunity to choose a few items from Coastal Scents.


About Coastal Scents


Founded in 2005, Coastal Scents emerged on the cosmetics scene, and is now recognized as a premier cosmetics brand. The best quality makeup, with the lowest price and the best customer service is what made Coastal Scents stand out since more than a decade ago.

With more than 800 affordable beauty products, Coastal Scents provides a complete selection, from eye shadows, mascara and blushes to concealers, makeup brushes, lipsticks & more.




Coastal Scents has a very large selection of Hot Pots Single Eyeshadows. The individual shadows I chose are very pigmented, and when I used my brush to swatch the shadows I notice very minimal fallout.


You can use the shadows in empty palettes such as Coastal Scents, Z Palette etc to create your own eyeshadow palette.



I have always wanted to customize my own palette. As you may know customizing your own palette can be costly depending on the brand you choose. I really love that Costal Scents has affordable shadows that I can create my own dream palette.


To customize my Palette I went with a neutrals, blue shadows, white shadows, and pastel shadows. The shadows have a magnetic base to place inside the magnetic palette. The second eyeshadow slot on the top row is a dud. The magnet won't stay in the pan so for now I'm using tape and the shadow stays in place.



Stay tuned for looks I plan on creating with my new palette!



I've heard so many good reviews for the Eclispe Palette. A good concealer is a must have in my makeup routine and for my makeup clients. I typically use individual concealers, but I like this palette that has a variety of cream shades all in one place.



The packaging is durable, but I noticed the black part around some of the concealers was lifted from the packaging.


The concealers are in good condition, so I'm not too worried about the small issues with the packaging.



This brush set is absolutely gorgeous, and the brushes feel soft! The pearl handles make these brushes look so elegant. I always wash new brushes before I use them and the bristles don't shed and seem to be very durable.


These brushes are normally $40, and they're worth the price. You can always wait until these brushes go on sale to get them cheaper. I decided to get another set to use for bride makeup clients. I think these brushes can will add a nice touch while doing a bride's makeup on her special day.



Buffer brushes are one of the main staples I keep in my brush collection and I use frequently in my makeup routine. The bristles on the brush are so soft. At first I thought this was a travel brush, but it's slightly smaller compared to some of my full sized brushes.

I can't wait to see how this buffer brush works with blending my foundation. This brush didn't shed when I washed it and like the Pearl Makeup Brush Set, this Bionic Flat Top Buffer Brush seems durable.



Overall I'm happy with my selections from Coastal Scents. The shipping process took about a week, but in all fairness I think the delay was due to Christmas. I order these products the Friday before Christmas. Everything came in tack and packaged securely in bubble wrap.

The customizable eyeshadow palette is so practical and makes so much sense. I wish more brands would get into doing that so people can choose the exact shades they want.

I had a two Palettes from CS a few years ago, and I really like the quality of the products, especially of the shadows. I love creating my own eyeshadow palette! I can't wait to create a few new makeup looks!

Thanks!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!

I agree. I'm glad I could customize my own palette. I have other palettes that I only use a few select shadows and it feels like a waste. I want to be able to use all the colors to create eye makeup looks. I like that I can choose exactly the colors I want.

Pilar said...

I've know about CS for years and I really like the quality of the products that I selected! CS is a pretty good beauty brand!

Pilar said...

Thanks and your welcome! I put a lot of thought into the shadows I selected. I wanted to go for neutrals, but I also wanted to add brighter colors. I have so many looks that I want to create!
