Which Palette Should I Get?
I was rummaging through my train case the other day and realized that I really need to step my makeup game up. I still don't have Mac money, so I'm searching for palettes that are affordably priced. Don't get me wrong, Mac is my go-to makeup spot for face powder and blush, but as far as spending $14.50 on one eye shadow, not so much. Now, I have bought single eye shadows that were around $10.00 or more. For instance, my Douse Me With Diamonds purple eye shadow by Victoria's Secret cost around $10.00, and my Urb by Urban Decay cost $16.00. The thing is, the color has to really be poppin' for me to want to spend that amount of money for a single shade.
I've seen so many YouTube videos in which ladies talk about eye shadow palettes by Coastal Scents and Manly. Both can be purchased on Ebay for around $20.00 or less, and the Coastal Scents palettes can be purchased from the Coastal Scents website. I'm seriously considering getting one because I'm ready to graduate from some of my L.A. Colors palettes. Yet, I'm not sure if they're really worth purchasing. These are some of the palettes I have my eye on:
The 88 Piece Makeup Palette by Coastal Scents
The 120 Manly PaletteDo any of you ladies have these palettes? If so, which one would you recommend that I get, if any? So far, this is the only video I've been able to find in which the palettes are thoroughly reviewed and compared:
I'm so happy I found this review because now I know not to get the shimmer palette if I do end up purchasing from Coastal Scents. Some of the other palettes I have my eye on from Coastal Scents are:
The 56 Piece Blush & Eye Shadow PaletteI'm drawn to this one because it has a good amount of eye shadow and blush.
The 28 Piece Neutral Eye Shadow PaletteThis palette looks like it would be great for everyday looks.
The Contour & Blush PaletteI want to learn how to create awesome cheek bones, and this palette seems to have what I need to do so.
If any of you ladies are familiar with any of these palettes, please let me know what you think of them. I'm trying to decide if I should invest in a large eye shadow palette such as the ones featured here, or simply purchase single shadows or trios from brands such as NYX and Urban Decay until I get all the shades that I want. What do you think?? Help!
