Coastal Scents Camouflage Concealer Palette






Yep! Another new palette from Coastal Scents! This one intrigued me just because I'm very picky about concealers so I was very curious to see if these would deliver. Because I knew that if they did, I would pretty much be in heaven because this would seriously come in handy in my kit.
Upon opening it, I knew I would have to wait a bit to evaluate the texture just because of the change in temperature (thanks to the shipping) had made it sweat a bit, as cream products like this has the tendency to do. So I let it rest for a day. The texture is very similar to that of the Studio Finish concealer or the Full Coverage Foundation by MAC. It's very thick and creamy and very pigmented. I wore one of the lighter shades to cover a blemish yesterday and it had some SERIOUS staying power. On me, it's a bit heavy for my under eye area (as is the Studio Finish), but this would be awesome if someone needed a full coverage concealer.
As seen from the swatches, the shade range for lighter skin tones is better in this palette. The darkest shade is similar to about an NC50. Also, the majority of the shades are more cooler in tone.
If you are a makeup artist, this would definitely be an awesome addition to your kit!

  3. Really tempted to purchase this although I haven't actually bought anything form coastal scents before (as I'm in the UK and always worried about shipping costing millions and taking forever!) but there are so many things that catch my eye on there!

    However, I hear you can buy them cheaper on ebay? Is this true? :-)

  4. Hey Tiffany....

    Yay! I found your blog! I'm one of your YouTube subscribers (QueenLeilani).

    I was just wondering...what do you do with the darker colored concealers that are obviously not your skin tone? Do you find a different way of using them?

    It would be a shame to have so many pretty colors that you can't use. Plus, I know some people find a creative way to use makeup on themselves.

  7. Laura Jane,
    yes, it is true that you can buy same items as sold by Coastal Scents a lot cheaper on eBay. Coastal Scents only order these palettes and everything else in China and then resell them. Oh and they have started to mark the palettes with their logo recently but they are still the same as those from China. So if you want to save some money, definately check eBay.

  8. ebay does have them cheap..but since they are shipping from CHINA..the fee's are quite high..about 9.99 for shipping plus the long wait.

  9. HELP! I am super excited about the Coastal Scents 25% off sale and I ordered some of the new Under Cover HD foundation on Friday. I ordered the st-04 shade but I found some swatches online and now I'm not sure if this is the right shade for me. I am assuming you recieved some from them and have not had a chance to review yet. You and I have the same coloring and wear the same shades in other makeup. So I was just wondering if you have already tested these out and can share what shade you are. I was thinking about ordering another shade before the sale is over. Thanks!
