Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer Review & Swatches

coastal scents step one eyeshadow primer

Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer ($9.95) is a new eyeshadow primer that recently launched. Since Urban Decay changed the packaging on Primer Potion I’ve been trying a variety of eyeshadow primers like Make Up For Ever Eye Primer and NYX HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base. I’ve liked plenty of them but I have to admit none really are as great as the original Urban Decay Primer Potion formula.

Revlon Racy Rose Powder Blush Review & Swatches

revlon racy rose powder blush

Revlon Racy Rose Powder Blush is one of several new blushes that popped up in a special display entitled Revlon Cheek Boutique. I suspect that this is a revamp and repackage of Revlon’s original powder blush collection for Spring 2014. But you never know! These new shades could be some sort of limited edition release but I doubt it.

I saw the display at Bed, Bath, and Beyond as well as Harmons so far but not at general drugstores like CVS and Walgreens.

Looking at the display and the range of colors there’s quite a lot to get excited about here. They all look incredibly pigmented and the shades look unique and very pretty.

Revlon Racy Rose Powder Blush was one of the first shades that caught my eye. It’s a very pretty cool coral. Yeah, I know, Racy Rose….not very fitting for a coral shade but to me it’s pure coral. It quite reminds me a little bit of Bobbi Brown Apricot blush or even a more popping version of Bobbi Brown Pink Coral Blush.
