Revisiting: Coastal Scents Blush and Contour Palette

Happy monday everyone! I know that a lot of you have work today, but I'm happy because I don't have anything to do today! Just some typing. :) So anyway, back to regular programming.. Today I will be revisiting my Coastal Scents Blush and Contour Palette. You can see my original post HERE 


I already posted my swatches in my previous post, so I won't get into it again. After using this for more than a year, Here's what I have to say. I think that this palette performs very well for its price. The white color and slightly yellowish color do a good job for highlighting. The brown color for is just right for contouring. I noticed, though, that these colors are not very long-lasting. Staying power is average. The light pink color is not very useful, since it's very light and practically blends with my skintone. This can only be used for people with darker skintones and you want a slightly pinkish highlight. The two blush colors on the right are very pigmented. Be very careful when applying these to people with light skintones, as it's easy to overdo this on them!

For those who are trying their hand on highlighting and contouring, this is a great palette! Plus it will take forever to finish since the pans are so big! However, if and when I finish this, I will be upgrading to a more long-lasting set :)

hmm, I'm abit on thumbs down side for Coastal scent items. I find out that some of the colors are chalky for my current 28 neutral palette.sad!

yes it's true some are chalky, but with a good primer, they can show decently :)
