Coastal Scents. Ahhh, some might have heard of this brand, and some not. I came across this brand as I was watching different YouTube makeup gurus use this for their makeup tutorials. I started doing my own makeup (the better versions LOL) early this year and I had a hard time finding cheap but High Quality palettes.
I should say you must really invest in good palettes, that is, next to foundation. But that (foundation) will be something to be discussed in my next blogposts yet to come. :)
I have tried almost every cheap palette I could find anywhere. Drugstores, bangketas (sidewalk stalls), and Divisoria (a marketplace and cool shopping haven in the busiest streets of Manila). And since I was a newbie that time, I cared less about my skin and continued using stuff I wasn't sure would have negative effects to me. So when I started following every single makeup tutorial of my favorite YouTube gurus: Michelle Phan, TiffanyD, Marlena (MakeupGeekTV) and the sisters, Blair(juicystar) and Elle(allthatglitters), I found out about Coastal Scents. And you know what, IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT (or watch, whatever you want to call it hahaha).
My Mom happened to be a makeup enthusiast too when she was a little younger, I showed her the vids and we drooled together. HAHA. For almost nine months of watching and drooling over this heaven-sent palettes, my Dad bought me not just one... BUT FOUR PALETTES!!! I loved him more that day! He got it from Coastal Scents website (it is only an online store so you gotta go check their website)
The packaging... OH THE BOX! and the palettes themselves were adorable!!! And because I am nice, I am going to show you how they look like.
