You can't have a great line of cosmetics based only upon foundation and powder, you have to have some color! Here's what I thought of some of Coastal Scents other products...
The Glossi Glazes really are a unique product, and while it took a bit to get used to using this product, I can really say I love it! While Coastal Scents bills this as part-way between a gloss and lipstick, this really is more of a product in it's own category.
The Glossi Glaze is in a pot, and is a very thick wax-like consistency. With a few swirls of a lip brush or your finger, the consistency does loosen up a bit, and when applied to your lips this is more of a stain with a thick, glossy finish. And that finish is pretty long lasting! The finish stayed up for aobut 5-6 hours, and the color sticks around for most of the day. With a clear or translucent gloss over this, the look is just amazing!
I tried 50's Twist, which is a dark pink with a hint of red. I recommend this color to everyone wanting to try this color, it was a very flattering color that will work with a lot of skin tones!
The Eye Shadows come in 72 different colors, and there is definitely something to make everyone look great! If you are really feeling like you need all of the shadows, you can even buy all 72 shadows in a set.
The shadows are very easy to work with. They are fairly well pigmented, so a little goes a long way. The color is easily buildable, and the shadows blend together very easily. I used the shadows over my usual Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion, and had no creasing, great wear and still looked perfect at the end of the day.
Last but not least, the blushes!
The blushes from Coastal Scents are fairly subtle. Don't get me wrong, they are pigmented, but not as much as the eye shadow. This is great, because I think if they were, I would have ended up with racing stripes on the sides of my face! The colors I tried (Dare and Sassy) are both neutral with a hint of pink, so they'll work for nearly anyone. My only complaint is that these products didn't have quite the same staying power as my beloved NARS blush, but they did stay put until mid-afternoon, which is quite a bit longer than most blushes!
If you want to try any of these products out, don't forget that today Coastal Scents is having their 20% off Cyber Monday Sale!
