MAC vs Coastal Scents

Here's the latest purple look I've done. I really love it because all of the colors I used were matte. I've found that the more and more I use them the more I become obsessed. Then again all that goes away when I use a shimmer for the first time in months and freak out that my eye looks glossy and wet, to DIE for LOL =D!!! All in all I think makeup is about phases, whatever we are feeling, how much time we have and how inventive we want to be. For me I have been using the CS Blush Palette like it is going out of STYLE!!!! So when I tried this vibrant purple I was shocked at how much I had missed drama. How long it had been! The hubs had requested a smokey eye (Idid them a lot when we met) and I am so very glad that he did =). Anyhoooo, this look is a little different for one very big reason. ONE eye is MAC and ONE eye is from the Coastal Scents 88 Palette. Can you see the differences? There are some of course but for those not ready to shell out almost $15 for one eyeshadow the 88 palette, at $19.99, is a pretty welcomed sacrifice. The colors themselves are so pigmented and long lasting that they performed just as well as MAC all day long (of course I used my Urban Decay Primer Potion under both!). I hope that you enjoy this fun wearable purple and be looking for more comparison tutorials to come!

Jen, I found your site through pinterest and my 8 year old daughter and I have been watching through all your tutorials. I bought some brushes and the urban decay primer potion and I love it. I always did my makeup every day before, but it would wear off after a few hours. Thank you so much for putting so much of your time and talents into your blog. I can't tell you how much prettier and put together I feel. I got some of those fake eyelashes put on at the salon when I recently went to Hong Kong, but since they finally fell off, I got some Demi whispies and have them on for the first time today:-) Keep up the good work! Thanks! Lauren

Hey there! Love your Blog. Just wanted to let you know that I recently purchased the Coastal Scents eye primer, and I think it works just as well as the UD primer I had used previously...AND it's inexpensive. You should try it out!
