Coastal Scents Hot Pots Haul Part 3


Here is the rest of my Coastal Scents haul. Man who knew swatching could take up so much time. This last bunch of shadows are a little more brighter and on the colourful side. As well the last 2 rows of swatches I did without using a primer underneath just so you can see how pigmented the Hot Pots are when swatched alone. I still can't believe how well priced these are. It makes me wonder if the price may take a drastic price increase. Im really looking forward to their next half off sale to pick up the shadows that I didn't manage to grab last time.

What are your faves from the swatches that were provided let me know in the comments below

Coastal Scents Hot Pots Haul Part 2


Hey Guys as promised here is the second part of my Coastal Scents Hot Pots Haul that I got. I hope you all find the swatches helpful if you choose to order from Coastal Scents. As I said before I really love the pigmentation of these shadows. They are very pretty to work with and have a great lasting power. I did notice with this order that some of the shadows had a little less product in the pans but nothing that I would worry over too  much. I decided to also list a few of my must have recommendations for you guys to check out. Stay tuned for part 3 of my haul which is a slightly bigger one than the first 2.

Ben Nye Face and Mojave Luxury Powders

Ben Nye Face and Mojave Luxury Powders Sienna, Topaz,Camel, Olive Sand


Ben Nye powders have been really popular over the last few years mainly because it was known and said that Kim K's highlight was achieved using Ben Nye's Banana Powder. The Ben Nye Face powder line is used in a few ways, to set makeup, control shine, smooth the surface and well as providing a fuller coverage when needed. The two types of powders I am posting about do two different things. The face powder is used to provide fuller coverage and the Mojave Luxury powder is used to enhance a more olive skin tone without the chalkiness as some powders may leave. The Mojave line is a newer improved line where the powder is made ultra fine to prevent chalkiness on the skin without compromising the quality of the powder. I picked up 2 from each line, mainly because the shades looked kind of similar and I wasn't sure which to choose. The powders themselves are very fine and soft once applied to the skin and they really don't leave a chalky finish when applied. Of the 4 shades that I chose I can blend them out and they would all work on my skintone although the shades are all slightly different. The cost of the powders range anywhere from $6 all the way to $20 depending on the size you are looking for. I do plan to pick more up for personal use as well as my kit because so far they work great and there is no flash back in pictures provided you don't apply too much product.

The Ben Nye powders can be purchased online at many retailers however I did purchase mine from www.makeupmania.com if you do sign up now you will receive a 10% discount on your order. Happy Shopping!

Coastal Scents Hot Pots Haul Part 1


Back in September I finally made a few orders of the infamous Coastal Scents Hot Pots. These shadows are about the same size as MAC shadows, hold alot of pigmentation and are priced amazingly at $1.95 each or from time to time they do go on sale for $0.99 each. Now this is a 3 part Haul because I made 3 orders which is totally about 100 shadows. Yes I know seems like alot but considering they are very cheap in price and I needed lol them it wasn't so bad.

With over 300 shades to choose from I felt like a kid in the Candy store. I didn't know what I wanted so for his haul I picked up more neutrals being that its fall now. I am so amazed at how pigmented these shadows are with and without a primer. I've done a few looks using them and love how they blend so seamlessly. Whats even more amazing it you only  need to pick up a small amount of product which would in turn make the actual pots last a long time.

These shadows are so amazing however they don't get enough praise for how exceptional they perform. Alot of the shadows are very good dupes for Makeup Geek shadows as well as MAC shadows. Now since I only purchased the pans I do plan on placing another order soon to pick up a few of the empty palettes that Coastal Scents also carries. Below are the names and swatches of the first part of my haul. Overall I am very satisfied with the colours I chose I do advise to really do your homework to determine what shades have good pigmentation and what shades you should stay away from. Reason being there are some shades that dont have the best pigmentation however its nothing a little Primer can't fix. To see more from Coastal Scents you can visit their website HERE
