revealed by coastal scents

dupes/alternatives masterpost ✨

Hey loves, this masterpost was partially requested and I’m so excited.  I recommend to do your research before buying the dupe, some of the dupes are better than others. Some brands are repeated. Here is a dupe masterpost for MAC lipsticks. Here is a dupe masterpost for liquid lipsticks. Here is a spreadsheet of Coastal Scents eyeshadows to MAC eyeshadow dupes. Most of these dupes I found online so I do not take credit for any of those but some I researched myself. This is under read more because this list is very long. :) If you have any more dupes or questions, feel free to send them in.

ohwoman  asked:

hey! I was just wondering.. I'm a complete beginner with eyeshadow! I never wear it. what are some GOOD palettes that are quite natural colours (for fair skin) and subtle? and what brushes would you recommend with this/these palette(s)? natural colours for beginners pleaseeee! also, what is mineralized skin finish? will it even out my red-ish skin tone (mostly on my cheeks but also all over!) at all?? thank you so much xx

You can get any shadow to look more subtle by using a light hand when applying, only picking up very little product on the brush and using a fluffy brush when blending it out :)

Try palettes like

Lorac Pro ($42)

I LOVE this palette for beginners because a common beginner mistake is using only shimmery shades so all the colors mush together looking like a shimmery mess. This palette gives a top row of matte shades and a bottom row of shimmery shades. 

Too Faced Natural Eye Palette ($36)

Coastal Scents Revealed Palette ($20) you can buy online here

For basic eye brushes you can buy them separately or buy a little eye starter kit. My only issue with buying a starter kit is that sometimes you may not use all the brushes it comes with or the brush kits arent as good quality, so I prefer to buy single brushes but it’s up to you!

You can find my post on basic must have eye brushes here, you can get a feel of what eye brushes to get and buy them separately :)

Some eye brush kits I recommend are

Real Technique’s Eye Brush Kit ($20) at Ulta or some Targets, Walmarts and CVS’s.

Sigma Basic Eyes Kit ($70) here

Also, the MAC Mineralized Skinfinish has a light to medium coverage, so it may not cover all you need it to but it should cover overall skin redness but not so much acne, scars, etc :)


Coastal Scents sent me their new ‘Revealed2’ palette to try out 
pre-launch, and I decided to use it in a tutorial as so many of you are always asking me to use 'more affordable palettes' 
So please do check it out!
*This is definitely a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette*

It’s now available for purchase, and to celebrate its release Coastal Scents have it on their website for half price, but it’s only for about another 12 hours or so…


Happy 2015!

I’ve been collecting a lot of cosmetics through sub boxes and holiday sales lately and that means I sometimes end up with duplicates, which I’d like to give to one lucky winner!

A little treat to start the new year off right.

I’m still rifling through my collection to find unused things to toss in, but so far I have:

*A Coastal Scents Revealed 2 mini palette
*Mini sample of The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer (highlight)
*Two full size Nyx soft matte lip creams in Milan and Syndey
*Full size Nyx butter lip balm in Red Velvet
*Full size Jordana eyeshadow pencil in almond
*Sample of Not Soap Radio Clover shower gel
*Sample of Ecru Hair BB cream

Everything is unused and brand new!

The only rules are you must be following me. Will ship outside the US, likes and reblogs count, yadda yadda. You all know the drill.

Good luck! Winner to be announced the sixth! Go go
