It's sooo scratchy !! I've never been able to use it because of that
Its not really soft and sheds quite a bite but still does the job ! Its really dense and its pink so 3 lippies for that haha !
This palette is just okay for me, the colors are great but they are kinda chalky and I only use 2 of them.They dont last more than 3 hours on me.
I think these are the worst eyeshadows i've ever owned. The pigmentation of these is just AWFUL. I got it because there was a lot of hype about it and i totally regret it. If i want a color to show up i have to pack it on like 10 times before i have a decent color on my lid and then i try to blend it and everything goes away !! and im using UDPP underneath ! I tried it with Mac Painterly Paint Pot, Nyx Milk pencil, Too faced primer, nothing worked and honestly its just not worth the effort ! If you want a neutral palette get the 88 warm one or the Mirage one instead you'll be alot more pleased
I really like this palette, the colors are beautiful and very pigmented, i think its the best coastal scents palette !
Palettes -Coastal Scents - 36 Smokey Eyeshadow Palette

So i went on a trip all around Canada for 2 months last summer, the only thing i had was a big bagpack cause i was hitchhiking ( i know i know its dangerous haha ). At first i was like im not gonna bring any makeup that would be stupid i dont need it and dont have space for it, but im makeup junkie i couldnt help so i decided to bring only one thing eyeshadow related and this was perfect ! its really small, it has a mix of shimmers and matte, it has pretty much every color you could need and its not heavy ! So i would say for travel purpose this is fantastic but for everyday use i've seen better pigmentation and blendability power than this palette
I think its a great palette, i used it alot when i first started in makeup. The pigmentation is pretty good, and you get tons of colors but i just think the colors are not that great and unique thats why i dont reach for it very often anymore
Skincare - Face -Coastal Scents - African Black Soap

So last year i bought the original black soap that is sold on Coastal Scents which is this one.I liked it, it wasnt bad at all but it didnt do anything extraordinary I mean it did what any regular face cleanser would do.I had bought this soap cause i have acne and my face is oily and i heard it was good for that but it wasnt,i mean it didnt make things worst but it didnt help either ! So after i used up the original one, i saw there was a new one called Tama Black Soap which is also sold on Coastal Scents website so i thought why not give it a try its not even 4$ ! BEST IDEA IVE EVER HAD ! It makes my skin sooo soft,my acne is not as bad as its used to be and my pores are so much smaller !!! I dont know whats different with this one but i dont care as long as it keeps working !
This stuff is great ! Its meant to make the shimmers in the eyeshadows pop out and its works really well for that, it makes shadows much more vibrant and shiny ! I dont find myself reaching for it too often though cause i find it harder to blend if i use it, id rather just foil my shadows if im going for a really bright look
I could totaly see it being the holy grail of someone who has a relatively good skin but its not my case.It has a dewy finish with little shimmers in it wich are not that obvious at all , it covers pretty well and lasts for about 4 hours ( on my combo skin ) wich is great but because i have big pores and acne scars its not really flattering. I found the best way to use it, is to mix it with my Mac Pro Longwear foundation , i swear it makes the prettiest foundation ever ! So yes im gonna buy this product again until i find a better foundation but only to mix it with my mac pro longwear !

Seriously this is the best brush i've ever used for liquid foundation. Before i got this brush i always hated how my foundation looked, but i couldnt not wear foundation cause my skin is far from great . I tried everything : sponges,regular foundation brushes,skunk brushes,beauty blender,fingers...nothing would make it look good and natural but yet full coverage, then i started to see a lot a people on youtube using this and it looked very promising, so i went ahead i bought it, considering its only 16$ even if it didnt work it wasnt gonna be the end of the world. But god was i to know that my skin would never look the same after that !! The best way to use it is to put little dots of foundation on your face first then blend it in with the brush,it looks so flawless !!! Oh and it doesnt shed AT ALL i have 2 of them now and none of them ever lost a single hair so.. Everyone who wears liquid foundation need this brush !
This is a great blush but be careful if youre fair like me, this is really pigmented and quite dark for a blush so use a very very light hand when applying this, actually there is one quite similar in color by nyx its Dusty Rose so if youre fair i would go with this one instead,you definitely dont need both
I used to use this all the time when i had black hair, now my hair is red so its not really flattering ! But this blush is so great, it looks very natural and blends really well, the staying power is not awesome but not awful either.I have very fair skin and its easy to overdo sometimes but not with this one !
So im really confused...ive been trying to make this blush works as a contour powder but theres no way its gonna work !! It looks sooo unnatural, its grey and it doesnt blend at all. Going back to my Urban Decay eyeshadow in Buck wich is perfect for me ! Edit 04/18/12 : I've been a lot paler lately (NC15) and this works wonderfully now !! It truly looks like a shadow on my face and not just a bunch of makeup
Oh my god this foundation is soooo awful, i actually think this is the worst foundation ive tried, so basically this does nothing except making me look chalky. I put this on and at first it has like a very very verrryyyy light coverage then 30 minutes later NOTHING, the color has disappeared but the chalky texture was still there. I mean ive NEVER seen something like that . Good thing this was only 5$
