I bought several Coastal Scents palettes and items a few weeks ago but never had a chance to blog about any of them ’til now. I have been having too much fun with them…so I totally forgot about doing this review.
PRICE: FIVE STARS
You can get this palette for under $20 and you get a LOT of product for that price too!
QUALITY: FOUR STARS
I love the fact that the product is highly pigmented but it is a wee bit on the chalky side. However, it is “build-able” and easy to work with and you can easily work around the “chalkiness” of the product. Setting sprays like the one made by Skindinavia addresses this too.
CUSTOMER SERVICE: FOUR STARS
Coastal Scents have good customer service people. It may take them a few days via email before they get around to contacting their customers regarding whatever issues they have…but unlike the big cosmetic players out there – they WILL contact you. I don’t always have the time to wait on the phone for customer service inquiries…so email is my best buddy – for the most part.
I gave their customer service four stars because their website’s kinda uuuh…wack-o. Also, I never received any confirmation/tracking information from them…which led me to snoop around their site for details. I dunno if tracking info is important to any of y’all…but it is to me! Anyways, I am a technical person and for me to get all confused because of their “My Account” page’s set-up says a lot. It was impossible for me to track my purchase/s because of how the website responds.
I dunno…maybe it was just a glitch in the system but I haven’t been on their website as of late to check if it’s gotten any better. *shrugs*
WOULD I PURCHASE THEIR PRODUCTS AGAIN?!
Most probably. This palette is not as “affordable” as most drugstore finds that I’ve encountered (e.g. NYC, Wet N’ Wild, etc.) but I am pretty satisfied with the quality of the stuff that I purchased. As previously mentioned, you get a lot of product for the amount that you spend – ergo, you get more bang for your buck!
My skin has not reacted to the ingredients of this palette either – and that is a very big deal to me, as I have very sensitive skin. I’m pretty much a happy camper right now.
Thanks, Coastal Scents!
