Product Review: NYC Individual Eyes Palette

I received this NYC Individual Eyes Palette from Influenster, and it’s one of the many amazing products inside the Beauty Bloggers Voxbox 2012. It was a pretty interesting kit, because it had all the essential eye products that you’ll need in one compact palette.  I have always been loyal to my favorite high end brands… Continue reading Product Review: NYC Individual Eyes Palette

Product Review: L’Oreal’s Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream in Medium

PRICE: FIVE STARS L’Oreal has always been good about providing its patrons with coupons – which  makes this product very affordable. It retails for $7.96 at my local Walmart and L’Oreal had a $2 coupon that I used so I only paid a total of $5.96 (taxes not included) for this product. Not bad, huh?… Continue reading Product Review: L’Oreal’s Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream in Medium

Product Review: NARS’ “Hungry Heart”

PRICE: TWO STARS This product retails for $41 and I feel like I really didn’t get my money’s worth on this particular purchase. I am a big NARS fan/consumer…but this blush/hi-lighter duo just didn’t do it for me. QUALITY: THREE STARS I don’t like “overly shimmery” makeup or products on my face. A wee bit… Continue reading Product Review: NARS’ “Hungry Heart”

Coastal Scents’ 6 Contour Blush Palette Review

 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!
