Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette Part 1: Swatches & Review

Tray 1 Daylight

Since this week is flack Friday I thought would finally review this beast! I'm reviewing one tray at a time. This Coastal Scents palette retails for $24.95 for 126.0g / 4.44 oz of product. Palette dimensions are 8.75" x 5.80" x 0.90" (22.23cm x 14.73cm x 2.29cm). The pan diameter is 0.3" or 7.62 mm which are smaller then Yaby at 15.5mm for their eyeshadows.

The reason for me choosing to review this palette is in the past I've owned the 88 and 120 palettes but unlike those, this is a coastal scents custom palette with shadows that you can buy in full size if you use up a shade in this palette. ;) Each tray houses 84 shadow! I've had this palette for close to a year now to really work with it. I spent a full day tacking photo of this over Christmas last year. lol

I will be swatching and review this tray starting from the top left corner to the bottom right corner on a diagonal from left to right upwards (60 degree angle) as that seems to the natural flow of the shades on this palette.

You can read the review for the colours of the Tray 2 and Tray 3 in the links.

IMATS TORONTO 2013 Recap and Haul

IMATS TORONTO 2013 Student Competition • Fantasy elements 3pm
I arrive this year at the Toronto Congress Centre at 9:20AM this time after getting up at 5:30AM. ;)  I got off the greyhound near the Royal York this year and walk back to Union then took the skywalk to the MTCC/IMATS. This is probably barest I've ever seen the MTCC floor space as it's usually packed with people come convention time and bridal shows! lol

I stay most of the day until 5pm this year. ;)

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar All-Star Mini x 4 Set and Mini x 12 Set: Swatches & Review

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar All-Star Mini x 4 Set and Mini x 12 Set

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar All-Star  Mini x 12 Set photo
Retails for $20US or $25CAN for the Mini x 4 Set and $58US or $69CAN for the Mini x 12 Set. Each tube is 1/4 the size of a full Lip Tar so the price for the mini x4 is practically the size and price of one Lip Tar. The same for the mini X 12 is the volume and price of 3 regular size Lip Tars. So what you getting is a trial size for each shade which is great consider how little of the product you actually use.

These set contain both Matte Lip Tars and Metallic Lip Tars from the permanent link.
