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
