Coastal Scents fans step right up! I know some of you have been really eager for some reviews from Coastal Scents but I’ve been a bit apprehensive about trying it out for size. Those mega palettes kinda scare me but they sure are hyped up in a major way across beauty blogs everywhere.
After getting many requests requesting some reviews from Coastal Scents I decided it was about time to bite the bullet. So expect a few reviews upcoming…
What do you think of Coastal Scents?
Jump ahead to read my review on the Coastal Scents Professional Blush Palette.
10 Blushes in one slim line palette in various finishes!
Well count me pleased at both the price and the packaging. I honestly love the slim line case which really makes it a joy to travel with. It’s super slim so it’ll travel easily with you and who doesn’t want to have at least 10 blushes handy on a vacay right? I know I wanna travel with the contents of my entire makeup collection and any beauty junkie can agree with that feeling. This makes it super simple to bring a range of 10 shades of blush with you! Gotta loves it right?
You get four matte blushes and the remaining six are a shimmer finish but very subtle not dosed in sparkle so no worries. Formula swatches crummy in my opinion but applies very nicely with good pigmentation and a nice pop of color. You get a range of various shades of warmer and cooler tones with most being ranges of pinks and peaches. Some shades are good enough to contour with as well if that’s your bag.
It’s not the highest quality blush in the world but for $16 it isn’t shabby either and should appeal to those that enjoy a good deal!
Wear time seems to be a bit crummy for some reason. I notice they wear away super fast and don’t last through the day so I am left to touching up which is abnormal for me as I’m not one for touching up my blush in all honesty however at this price I probably can’t complain too much.
Shades aren’t that big a variety really and some come across the same once applied.
I hated the big “Coastal Scents” emblem across the palette so I took some nail polish remover and went to town taking it off hehe!
- Budget beauty shoppers ($16 bucks for 10 shades of blush is a steal).
- Those who want more for less.
- Those who want a super slim travel palette!
- Those who like MAC or NARS Blushes (these aren’t the same quality and pigmentation isn’t nearly as strong nor is wear time).
- Those who have a problem with ingredients in their cosmetics such as talc, mineral oil, etc…
If you’re not a makeup snob you can easily get on board with this. It’s a fab deal and I was quite ok with the formula on these. Wear time is iffy all around but I’m still happy with the overall presentation of the palette, formula, and just the general idea of having 10 blushes in one spot for traveling! Mind you, it’s not the best blush in my stash by any means but its a nice item to have around when I’m wanting to travel with 10 or more or just to add more color to my blush wardrobe (yeah, right, like I don’t own every NARS blush already and need more ha!). At this price it’s actually worth a haul in my humblest particularly if you don’t already have an extensive shade selection of blush in your stash. It’ll be particularly exciting for those on a budget.
Anyone own it?
