Makeup Question Answered.
thedarebear answered: do you have any of the coastal scents palettes? I’m looking for a matte neutral palette…how does CS compare to higher end brands?
Yes, I do have a Coastal Scents palette. I have their 28 Neutral Palette and the Creative Me #1 Palette.
In my opinion, Coastal Scents is a great brand. What’s important for me is a shadows color payoff. Coastal Scent shadows have a pretty good color payoff. Not every shadow is going to give you the most bang for you buck, but it might not be meant to be an intense color, but more of a wash, so you have to keep that in mind as well.
I don’t think you have to splurge on super high end brand eye shadows all the time. There are plenty of high end shadows that I’ve been disappointed with because the pigmentation of the shadow was so poor.
Also remember, if you use an eye shadow primer, you’ll get better staying power out of all of your eye shadows, whether they are high end or drugstore.
