Black Friday got me again... I just couldn't help myself from clicking over to Coastal Scents' website for their 50% off Black Friday sale, and well.... I did it again. (Click here to see what I got last year) But I don't regret it for one second.
Coastal Scents is an up and coming brand, and really, I think they're such a hidden gem in the beauty world. They have a variety of makeup and skincare products, as well as brushes. I have tried a variety of their eyeshadows and they all perform like high-end eyeshadows even thought they only cost $1.99 EACH. They are creamy (even though they're powder!) and soft and blend SOsoSOso well. Seriously... they're just plain EPIC. I could go on all day about them!
I also own a number of Coastal Scents brushes which work just as well as my Sigma brushes, a more expensive brush brand. If you want to experiment with quality makeup without breaking the bank, Coastal Scents is where it's at. Period.
Here's what I picked up from the brand on Black Friday. I got all the eyeshadows for just 99 cents each! SCORE!
Starting at the top, left to right, I got the following "hot pot" eyeshadows: Canyon Coral, Chamois Nude, Coral Treasure, Grape Vine, Harvest Brown.
Bottom row, left to right: Kodiak, Light Taupe, Oatmeal Tan, Panama Rose, Raisin Berry, Tuscan Terra Cotta, and Wild Raisin.
Here's what they look like swatched over the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, for an added color pop (you can use this eye pencil as your primer to get the same amazing color payoff on your eyelids).
|NOTE: I accidentally forgot to swatch Coral Treasure (the one shown before Grape Vine above), so I added it on to the end - on right.|
And here are some super close swatches so you can see how fantastic all of these are!

As you can tell, I tend to like neutrals and pinks, soooo that's what I got! If you've tried anything by Coastal Scents, I'd love to know what you've tried and how you like it!
