Something Colorful: Make-Up Palettes by Coastal Scents

Something Colorful: Make-Up Palettes by Coastal Scents 1Remember when my sister Kathryn did my make-up back in October (see right)? Well, I'm not really a full-blown make-up kind of girl, but I LOVED it! This casual Arizona girl who normally just wears a touch of lipstick totally felt glamorous on that day.

I keep thinking that I need to call her and invite her to give me a little one-on-one make-up tutorial because, honestly, I still have no idea how to apply eyeliner (not that I'd wear it that often, but - still - a girl should know, right?).

Something Colorful: Make-Up Palettes by Coastal Scents 2Anyway, when she was doing my make-up, she pulled out this awesome palette of 88 warm colors for eyes - grays, browns, beiges, reds, plums, and pearls. It was from Coastal Scents, a cosmetics company that sells skin-care and beauty cosmetics and tools (everything from lip liner and mascara to foundation and bronzer).

Frankly, the website is a little overwhelming for this down-to-earth girl. But if you love browsing Sephora and Ulta, you're bound to like Coastal Scents too.

Here's a picture of my pretty little sister (Isn't her hair color stunning? And it didn't come out of a box either...):

  1. I actually don't think you and your sister look very much alike, but I definitely see a resemblance.
    The makeup is beautiful!

  2. I reall enjoyed looking at all the things Coastal Scents carries. Thanks you for introducing the site to me!

  3. I would be like a kid in a candy store if I had that kit.I wouldnt be able to keep it long because my daughter would say "Ooh I want that" and it would be on its way to her house with her.I am such a pushover where she is concerned.

  4. I've recently lost quite a bit of weight and am eager to try some new colors to go with the new me. Thanks for directing me to a place with so many great products to choose from :)

  5. There is certainly some resemblance between you and your sister, especially from the eyes down. The photo angles make it difficult to say about your eyes. I do think if a saw the pair of you, I would suspect right away that you are sisters, yet you both have your own unique style.

    I have two sisters. Although we all have shared some similar characteristics since youth, it is interesting how as we change we age, some similarities are more pronounced, and some less so.

    What a fabulous eye collection! Thank you for the opportunity! Would love to have an opportunity to shop Coastal Scents!

  7. I love watching makeup gurus on youtube. ALopt of them use coastal scents palettes and I've wanted to try the blush/contouring palettes, eyeshadows and their brushes for sometime.

    For $100 I could buy a bunch! Thank you :D

  8. No - I don't think you do but then I rarely see resemblances in people! I'm not a big makeup person either but I do wear eyeliner!

  9. I hate leaving the house without makeup I feel naked without it.But I have always been that way since I was a teenager.I just checked out the site and they have some awesome products.I would love to try the Undercover HD Foundation ST-09 :)

  10. I don't see much of a resemblance, but your smiles are similar. I actually prefer your curly hair over your sister's hair. Thanks for turning me onto a new product line ... I had never heard of Coastal Scents.

  11. I'm not a full-blown makeup kind of girl either. I do like trying new colors, though. This would be a real treat.


  12. Your sister's hair is beautiful.
    I haven't heard of coastal scents, but would love to try it. I wear foundation and use concealer.

  13. Oh, I remember this site -- I've heard great things about their big palettes from makeup artist friends. I think I bookmarked it for future purchase!

  14. I do not use much makeup-just lipstick and blusher most of the time. However, I do experiment sometimes and try other makeup products.

  15. I could lose myself for hours on the Coastal Scents website - and have alot of fun doing it!
    P.S. The 'eyes' have it ;)

  16. Of course you and your sister look alike, very pretty. Me and my daughter would have so much fun with this palette!

  17. As I get older it seems my make-up routine get longer. I'm always looking for different types of anti-aging products and cover-up make-up.

  18. They actually have a foundation that matches my (super pale) skin tone! And based on the reviews, I'm going to have to try it!

  19. great job on the makeup. My 20 year old college student daughter lives with me and most of my makeup ends up in her room. I am more timid in my color use, she is an artist and more expresive with her eye colors

  20. I love the 66 Color Lip Palette, I also really liked the mineral foundation, I do not wear a lot of make up but from time to time it is fun to play with the colors and be really creative thanks for the chance

  21. It looks like she did a great job on yours and also on HER makeup! Your hair is so curly and hers is so straight! Thanks for the chance to win this!

  22. You both looks gorgeous! Not very similar at first glance but your smiles look the same and I think the eyes do too.
    Love the color palette - nice to have all in one.

  23. I love the color of her hair and the makeup looks great on her skin tone. I have never heard of this company but wouldn't hesitate to shop there.

  24. Wow, their products look amazing and are reasonably priced! I like the look of the 56 Piece Blush & Eye Shadow Palette

  25. Wow, her hair really is stunning! I can see the resemblance between you two also.

    I had to toss my make up because it was so old. Some new pretties to play with would be awesome!

  26. Make up always intrigues and entices me. It's our war paint, our decorator sense our face to the world. I'd love to try one of these make up palettes, especially one blended just for me.


  27. I have never heard of Coastal Scents before and would love to try the Silk cover Fair Mineral Foundation and the Quad Concealers.

  28. Like you, I am not that much of a makeup wearer. I do like to wear it on "special occasions" tho and this looks like a great way to try different things. (On the other hand, it's very possible my daughter would steal it!)

  29. I LOVE Coastal Scents!!! I have three of their 88 eyeshadow palettes and the quad concealers. This website has the best value in makeup! I'd love to win and get more goodies :)

  30. At age 28 I'm still pretty inept with makeup, so such a grand collection would be a blessing as I figure out what works for me! :-)

  31. I am a makeup fanatic. I am always doing makeup for my friends and running out of colors to try on everyone. I would love to have that eyeshadow set so I can do their makeup for special occasions and so i have makeup for myself to use every day!

  32. I'm like you, I don't do much beyond a swipe of mascara and lip gloss. But it's fun every once in a while to add some eyeshadow!

  33. I've never tried African Black Soap before but it looks like it could be really good for oily skin and blemishes. I'll have to try it if I win!

  34. The nose and the eyes are very similar, but the smiles are really different (although both very pretty).

    And I agree! Your sister's hair color is stunning. Loving your curls, too.

  35. I love experimenting with different makeup shades I never use the same colors over and over. I think you and your sister look a lot alike.

    :) Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! :)

  36. I don't usually wear a ton of make up either, but this site has a good varitey of *fun* things for special occasions. :)

  37. my friend is actually taking me shopping next week to show me how to buy and apply makeup the right way so this would help towards that goal.

  38. I would love this! I used to love trying different colors but since my son was born I kinda let myself go a bit. But now i'm feeling better and ready to be a HOT mama again! & your sister is gorgeous! I love that hair color & was thinking of doing mine back that way for my lil sisters wedding.

  39. I went to the Coastal Scents website because the eye shadows you showed looked so nice. I see they have something called Smacks....pretty colored lip glosses. The Carlotta color looks divine! I'll definitely have to get some tubes of it.

  40. You both are very beautiful and I to know very little about makeup. I love the looks of there lip gloss and would love to stock up on those.

  41. I would love to win this prize so I can give it as a gift (I'm male so wouldn't use it myself!). And is your sister single?!? :)

  42. I don't see much of a resemblence .Except possibly similar smiles. Coastal Scents would be a tricky site to navigate. So many choices.

  43. I am forever searching for new eye shadow shades in colors that compliment my eyes. Unfortunately, you never know how they are going to look until you wear them. More often than not, I will open my new package of eye shadow -- only to find that the eye shadow looks cruddy. I love the fact that this eye shadow palette contains 88 colors...and is chock full of my favorite shades! Thank you for hosting this fabulous giveaway - I would be SO thrilled to win!

  44. Eyeliner is a bit tricky to get right but practice makes perfect. My teenage daughter is my makeup artist, she would have a ball with that color palette. You and your sister have the same happy eyes that smile back at the camera.

  45. I realized recently that I don't do very much when it comes to my eye makeup. I just put one shad on the top, and one shade across the bottom. It looks fine, but if I had more colors to work with, I think i could create something with a little more definition. I need a tutorial for how to do it, though!

  46. I heart makeup. I wish I lived closer to your sister because I'd have her over for coffee and a consultation. I feel like I'm often stuck with the same old beauty routine.

    I do see a slight resemeblence between the two of you although your curly hair is throwing me off. Does she straighten her hair or is it naturally that way?

  47. Your sister did a great job on your (and her) makeup! Does your sister know just how many people that would kill for her haircolor? I went to the site and it did have a lot of stuff, but it looks like it would be fun to play around with!

  48. I've heard such good things about Coastal Scents! I've been wanting to try one of their palettes forever, there's so many great colors :)

  49. You are both beautiful! Your sister is so lucky to have such a great haircolor and it be natural!!! Oh yeah, every girl should know how to apply eyeliner, even if we don't wear it often.

  50. Your sisters hair and complexion are so perfect! You are gorgeous too though, your smile is infectious.

    I would love some really great makeup like you have listed here, thanks for the chance!

  51. I wish my sisters could do my makeup. I need a makeup artist who can do my makeup. As for the eyeshadow palette, that looks amazing. I have very little makeup.

  52. I don't think you look a bit alike. ;) But I'm never good at seeing resemblances anyway...
    And I never learned how to 'do' make-up... always feel like I'm playing dress-up when I try to do anything besides mascara and blush. It would be nice to learn though!

  53. Wow it would be awesome to have so many colors to choose from when doing your makeup. I love makeup. Hmmm I don't think you and your sister look that much alike. I see similarities but I wouldn't automatically assume it.

  54. You two sure have some good genes! And you're right, I love her hair color! I would love to win this giveaway and get out of my makeup rut. Time to start fresh again!

  55. I love looking around at Sephora and sites like that EXCEPT that I discover I spent two hours doing it! Your sister and you are both beautiful.

  56. I dont think you guys look alike but either do me and my sister. I have just started getting in to makeup, I guess I am a late bloomer.

  57. I dont think you look too much alike from the photos, but maybe in real life there is more of a resemblance. You are both very pretty though, that is for sure!
    Coastal Scents looks fabulous! I would love to try the Flawless Glow Dust, Pout' In Perfect Lip Plumper & the 13 piece Honey Glow Kit.

  58. I don't wear much makeup but really need to start paying attention and taking better care of how I look! This would be a great incentive!

  59. wow...i'm not much a of a makeup person usually, but this website looks fun! And the prices look very reasonable. I like how they have sets already put together- makes it harder for you mess up on your own :)

  60. Ohh, awesome. I don't have the warm palette, but I have the other 88 palette and LOVE it. Seriously a great pigment payoff for the price. I've been ignoring mine as of late, since I'm currently in love with my Urban Decay eyeshadows, but there is a TON of stuff I'd like to check out from Coastal Scents.

  61. I get lazy when it comes to putting makeup on. Maybe if I had some new, decent makeup I would be more excited about it!

  62. Yes I think you and you sister look alike. She did a great job on your make-up, and that palette looks like it would be a lot of fun to play around with!

  63. Ooh I'd love to win this. My little sister is a freelance makeup artist, so if I win I'll share some of the Coastal Scents goodies with her :) That's a big sisters job, right? I love their palettes, the colors look highly pigmented. Thanks so much!

    P.S. Tell your sister she should be a model, gorgeous girl! I can definitely see that you two pretty ladies are sisters.


  65. 88 colors, Wow! I would love to experiment, as I am sure my teenage daughters would! I do think that you and your little sister look alike!

  66. I love makeup and this a is great giveaway. I love the pictures of you and your sisters trying the makeup. My only comment and please don't be offended because your sister is gorgeous, but the blush on her cheeks take away from her overall look, it looks like two circles, maybe it should be a little lighter or brushed on the apples of the cheeks and up and outward.

  67. I have heard nothing but good things about this company and have been wanting to get a palette for a while!

    nettysgirl @

  68. I think you guys look alike but put you in a line up and I dont think I could pick you out as sisters. Her hair color is gorgeous by the way and your curls are fab too. You both got great hair genes! I sure you could use some make up inspiration since I only wear it about three times a week but really need to wear it every day!

  69. Yessss!!! I am normally a MAC girl, but these sets are actually pretty well recommended because they perform decently and are an amazing value. I've been dying to try some!

  70. I've never used a lot of makeup but am finding that I would love to learn how to use more. I can use all the help I can get.

  71. I would love 88 colors to choose from but I would need the cool colors. I think you and your sister have the same shaped eyes. Personally I love your hair with all the curls/wavys.

  72. I think you look alike, but very different at the same time...
    I'm realizing that the older I get, the more make up I need to look alive. ;) What an amazing collection of colors! 88?! WOW!!

  73. I could really use some help when it comes to makeup colors. I learned recently, that a pink blush looks more natural on me than peach. And when it comes to eye colors, I have no idea what I'm doing. I just stick with very neutral shades. It would be fun to have someone (who knows what they're talking about) give me a few more options.

  74. I just took a look at this site and love all the makeup they sell. I really love the lip gloss and the blushes. Thanks so much for this giveaway.
    Thanks so much.

  75. You both are so beautiful! And have a great smile! I wear eyeshadow and a little bit of mineral powder foundation on the nights that I work (to hide the signs of not sleeping) but on days when I'm home a little lipgloss is about it.

  76. I don't wear tons of make-up (my husband doesn't know the difference when I do!) but I do enjoy dressing up every now and then. I would love to be able to experiment with different colors to find what works best with my colors.

  77. They sell African Black Soap! I have been wanting to try it for a while. I have heard/read that it is a miracle soap.

    Keeping my fingers crossed!

    By the way ~ I am so jealous of your sister's hair color. It is gorgeous!

  78. Man, I'm going to sound like the odd man out, but if you had made me pick out your sister from a group of pictures, I'm not sure I would have picked her!! You're both beautiful, but in different ways!!

  79. Your sister is beautiful - as are you! I use a little bit of makeup - mostly foundation to even out my skin tone with a little blush, eyeliner and mascara. My makeup routine takes me about 6 mins in the morning which is nice because I just don't have time!

  80. I am not a make-up girl... but sometimes want to be. I would like to up my routine a bit to look a little more glamorous from time to time.
    You and your sister are both beautiful! Love your smiles :)

  81. I love makeup but it's definitely one of those purchases that falls last on my priority list! I end up using things way longer than I probably should. Plus I try and do the "5 Minute Face" - I can't handle spending lots of time doing my makeup!

  82. What a wonderful array of colors to choose from! I usually stick to my 3 shades for eyes, but it would be fun to experiment with more.

  83. She did a great job with your makeup! I love the colors she chose for you.

    There was a time when I spent hours on my makeup in the morning. These days I'm happy if I get a little bit of powder and blush on my face. I always do mascara though, my lashes are very light and my eyes look much smaller without it.

    I see the resemblance in the eyes, but I never would have picked her out of a crowd as your sister even though you're both gorgeous!

  84. I think you both look a little alike if for no other reason then you are both beautiful.

    I used to be a minimal make up girl, but since having Lily I think I've worn make up 10 times (she'll be 14 months old in two days.).

  85. I see a resemblance between you and your sister but it's definitely not the twin factor... and I'd probably take the easy way out on shopping the site... turn my make-up-hungry teens loose... lol (they would love it... might loose my computer for a day, but that's a small price to pay for beauty...)

  86. Your make-up looks wonderful! I think I'd be confused too....I'm a no nonsense kind of girl. In fact, I've been married since 2001 and still own my wedding make-up. (I know that's bad!!) I bought all new stuff from MAC back then and it's still what I use today since I RARELY use make-up....maybe 3 times a year, if that. :) I don't think you and your sister look alike.

  87. You do look somewhat like each other but you can totally see your unique personalities in each of you! You're so lucky to have your very own makeup artist. That palette is such a makeup persons dream.

  88. I think you look alike in the eyes for sure. I LOVE makeup, but don't usually make the time for it every day. I used to do makeup at Origins, forever and ever ago. Oh and I got some Covergirl for my lips today, thanks to your review :)

  89. Of course you look amazing...even without makeup. I haven't heard of Coastal Scents. I used to use M.A.C. eyeshadow, but I am starting to really like Benefit makeup too. I, like you, don't know much about makeup. I have had to have friends show me how to apply it so it looks good. I mainly use just eye shadows and mascara. I am not brave enough to sport the red lipstick that pull off so well!

  90. I am very comfortable with wearing just lipstick, also! I haven't applied eyeliner for years, but you have got me thinking about it now! The Coastal Scents Brand is new to me! You and your sister don't
    look alike to me. I don't look very much like my sister, either! Thanks, Cindi

  91. There is a resemblance. Make up last me forever since I no longer wear it everyday. I consider not putting it on all the time one of the perks of staying at home.

  92. A little bit of resemblance..and fantastic she has the talent! Did you find it overwhelming trying to choose colors? I always tend to stick to the same three in the tiny packages. I am always afraid to buy other colors.

  93. I, too, like to play with color, but wish I knew better how to apply it, especially to the eyes. Most days I don't have time to play, but that big container of eye shadow does look like fun!

  94. I think there's a resemblance, for sure- especially in the eyes. I'm a no-frills makeup girl, too, although I secretly love the concept of 88 colors to play with!

  95. I love the makeup on you in that picture and your sister is just as beautiful as you! And her hair color is to dye (wink wink) for!
