Coastal Scents Haul

Ever since I received a quad sample of the Revealed 2 palette in my July Birchbox, I’ve wanted the full thing. However, I knew that Coastal Scents does frequent sales, and so I pledged to wait until the palette was 50% off. That happened this past week, and now the Revealed 2 palette is at my doorstep. It’s not alone, though; I figured since I was paying for shipping anyway, why not try a few more products?

I was impressed by how well-wrapped everything was. I opted for the USPS shipping option, and everything arrived in perfect condition.

Revealed 2 Palette | $9.95

This is the “big ticket item” in my haul. It seems silly that a $10 palette classifies as a big ticket item, but in this case it really does. I am so excited to play around with it, especially since I’ve been hearing nothing but good reviews from other bloggers.

I haven’t taken swatches yet, but here’s another blogger who has: http://www.warpaintandunicorns.com/2014/06/coastal-scents-revealed-2-palette.html

Forever Blush – Poetic | $7.95

I had a LOT of trouble trying to decide between Fresh, Poetic, and Delicate. A lot of the blushes in the Forever collection seem to be much too dark and pigmented for me, but I was attracted by how long they’re supposed to last. These were the three that looked the lightest in swatches (http://mimsysblog.wordpress.com/2013/12/03/coastal-scents-forever-blush-fresh-delicate/, http://mimsysblog.wordpress.com/2014/01/02/coastal-scents-forever-blush-charming-poetic/). They’re similar enough and different enough that it was difficult to choose just one!

I was really tempted to get the mineral makeup in Aquatica, which is a stunning bright blue, but I don’t really know how to work with mineral makeup yet and so I decided to play it safe by getting some browns instead.

Mineral Makeup – Cobblestone | $4.95

Mineral Makeup – Nightingale | $4.95

I have very few brushes, and so I figured I’d take this opportunity to expand my collection with some new types of brushes. I’ve been thinking that I need more eyeshadow brushes, and Coastal Scents’ are cheap and seem to be of decent quality.

Classic Shade and Fluff Medium Natural | $2.49

Classic Shadow Dome Natural | $2.95

Classic Shadow Small Natural | $1.95

Classic Blender Pointed Natural | $2.95

Classic Foundation Large Synthetic | $5.95

I also received a sample quad of the original Revealed palette.

I paid $7.17 for shipping via normal USPS mail, and also used a discount code for 25% off everything, so my order ended up being $42.72. For just the palette, shipping would have been $4.05. Getting packages is always a little exhilarating, but especially when they contain things I’m so excited to try! Expect reviews once I have had some time to play around with my new products.
