Coastal Scents Second order

Hey everyone, as I said I would this is the blog post for my second Coastal Scents order. I placed this order on the 27th November 2009 and got a friend to bring it over to the UK for me when he was travelling over in December. However i was on ship until the 8th Jan 2010 so I didn't pick them up until the second week of Jan!!!!

so Im just gonna dive straight into it and give you my opinion!

Italian Badger Pencil Brush & Italian Badger Crease Brush:

Italian Badger Pencil Brush
This is Long slim handled, short bristle but soft still which is nice could be denser though.

Italian Badger Crease Brush
This is a shorter style brush, its not very dense and feels like it could do with more bristles like the pencil one but it is very soft. It works well for building up colour softly which is good when your packing on a bright or very dark colour!

Light Camo Quad & Colour Corrector Camo Quad:
Light Camo Quad:
Now the reviews made me want this everyone saying how creamy it is which is true but It cakes a bit on my under eye area which Is mainly because I have the driest skin ever so maybe when the sun comes out and it warms up this might work better. Good colours though I have very light skin and its a nice mixture of shades in the quad so you can mix to get the perfect match.

Colour Corrector Camo Quad:

Not a fan of this when I got it to be honest I think i was hoping for miracle concealer and it wasn't just doesn't work for me i'm afraid.

Cosmetic Glitters:

Ok for the next five Items I gasps when I opened them! For ones I had no clue what an Ounce was I just ordered it cos it was so cheap anyway and I didn't realise they would be this big!!! So happy though I love them all and Im having to share them as I want others to appreciate them!! So my sister got a pot of each colour to play with!

Fairy Dust 004 1oz:
Just beautiful, perfect to Glam. up any eyeshadow! It is just fairy dust soooo pretty!

Sahara Sand Glitter 1oz:
Just a rich dark pure gold very Lush! Gonna great for summer!

Ocean Blue Glitter 1oz:
OMG I know this is a little sad but anything to do with the sea and Im in love already but this colour is just pure ocean makes me think of mermaids!

Crimson Glitter 1oz:
The red-ist of red glitters ever! haven't used it on the eyes yet but will do it with a vampy look also really want to try and recreate Paloma Faith's Red Glitter Lips in the "Do you want the truth or something beautiful" video.

Sliver Hologram Glitter 1oz:
Add the best dimension to a smokey eye just give it that added wow factor I used this on my Friend Tracy for her Birthday party make up and it looked stunning!

Mineral Blush in True Blush:

I got this just because I was sent that sample last time and I've worn it everyday since I got it!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Gel Liners - sexy pink, Stella & Silk White:

These are lovely so soft smudge-able but set very stubbornly when dry! Stella has become my go to dark liner instead of jet black as its not as harsh!

EZ Pressing medium & mini Spoons:

EZ Prez&Trade Pressing Medium:
Similar reason to the mini spoons bought this to press pigments but still no pans to do so!!!

Mini Spoons 50 pcs:
Now i bought these to help pressing my pigments but I haven't used them yet as being blonde I forgot to Order the pans to do so! So they are sat in a draw…cute though!

This all came to $101.51 but there was a sale for the black friday so I saved 25% Totalling $76.13 which is £50 BARGIN!!!

I think I have curbed my want to buy everything from Coastal Scents now, apart from those empty pans!!! grrrrr I will get those at some point though :)

So once again all of these things were from and go check it out and se what you think!

Stay sexy Sailors! Love Larissa XOXO

Coastal Scents first order

Hi everyone, I have been watching youtube Guru's for about a year now and have started loving their beauty blogs so I thought I'd join in and start beauty blogging myself, I don't think I have the guts yet to start doing video's but one day maybe!

My first blog is as you can see from the title is about my first order that I got from coastal scents, an American online brand, which gets many mentions on youtube and it made me want all of it after watching so many reviews! So I put a order in on the 12th October which I received on the 29th which was unfortunate as I had to go to sea on the 30th for 2 months and I didn't even get to play with anything.

So this is what I ordered:

88 Warm Palette:
Now I bought 2 of these palettes, one for myself and one for my mother, as she only really wears neutral colours and I thought this would be perfect for her! It was and I love it myself. Even though I only got my order two days before I went away I had to take something with me just to play with and i chose this. I knew that I wouldn't be able to wear it much but still it was fun I just ended up wearing in my cabin just playing around. i love this palette though everyone needs it!

88 Ultra Shimmer Palette and 88 Piece Palette:

Now I have only as of yet been able to swatch these palettes and was very impressed with what i discovered, the colours are great and I cannot wait to start playing with them more!

Creative me no1 Palette:

Now I have used this palette for daily use and they are amazing, I know if you look at it you wouldn't think that this would be an everyday palette but if you mix neutral tones with bright colours worked into the crease and on the lower lash line it will make a day time look, look that little more wow!

Contour and Blush Palette:

Haven't gone to grab this everyday to be honest. Its a nice palette and the colours are good but I find they are a bit too matte and I wear matte foundation so i find it gets a bit cakey with the contour and highlight and blush! Maybe in the summer months I might grab for it more where I wear less of the foundation.

10 Piece Professional Blush Palette:

I've never been much of a blush person as i tend to have Rosy cheeks naturally so I don't like to blush even more than I do already but I wanted this palette to give me the option to try other colours and experiment with them. The colours are very much its a good range and a good size!

The total cost for this including tax and shipping was $154.39 which is roughly £100.

I was also sent two samples which was really nice, one was the mineral blush in True blush which I love!!!!! love love love its a beautiful rose pink! and a mineral eyeshadow in a dark Violet unfortunately I don't remember the name of it but its very nice!

All in all i am very happy with everything I ordered so much so I ordered more only 6 weeks later which i will tell you about in the next blog!

Hope you enjoyed my first beauty blog...

Sending Hugs, Larissa! XOXO
