I've become absolutely enthralled with makeup over the past few months. I watch all the big YouTube makeup gurus and have learned so much in just a short time. I now know how to blend, contour, clean my brushes and so much more. I am and will be always indebted to the tutorials I've had the privilege of watching.
I knew that I wanted to get more eyeshadows but my budget isn't the biggest. I was watching Beauty Broadcast (one of my faves) and she has an old tutorial using the Coastal Scents Warm Palette containing 88 beautiful shades of eyeshadow. I decided that I had to buy this palette after watching her tutorial and seeing how many looks I could create with this large palette. I paid only $12 for it!
When I ordered the palette I also ordered one of their blending brushes. I had almost every brush out there (from elf) but no blending brush, I needed one! I discovered that their eyeshadows are very creamy and soft, they glide on so smoothly and blend like a dream. Most of the shadows in this palette have a nice amount of pigment but there are a couple that could have used a bit more.
Overall I am loving my new palette and use it almost every time I put my makeup on. The big mirror is a nice plus but you need to lean this against something if you want to use both hands. The blending brush could be a bit softer but it really does a great job of blending my look and packing on the color. I can create a natural day or dramatic night look within minutes using this palette. Most shadows are a satin, some are shimmery and a couple seem to be rather matte. I will definitely be ordering from Coastal Scents again in the near future. Next up I want to get their brow set, my poor brows could use it!
