So here’s the deal– when it comes to buying absolutely anything in person, I am completely impulsive. I can walk into Sephora and Ulta, pack my shopping bag up with just the most random beauty items and buy them all on a whim. When it comes to shopping online, I find that I always end up talking myself out of items from my shopping cart. I will literally make it to the confirmation page when I just find myself closing the entire web browser down. These items have been on my “wish list” for several years, and I finally decided to purchase them.
This Coastal Scents palette was $16.95 (here). I’ve been doing a lot more contouring lately, and this palette is a perfect start. The colors are really warm. I know BH Cosmetics has a similar palette that is more for cool-toned skin colors.
Here’s swatches of the top row. I find that the first three colors work well as concealers for me. The last brown is a bit too dark for my skin tone right now. It definitely looks like patchy spray tan on my face.
Here’s the bottom row. Just like the last brown color on the top row, the last two on this row are definitely way too dark for my winter-pale skin. I can’t wait for next year’s summer season where I’m sure I could pull these tan colors off. In the mean time, I’ll stick with the first three colors for contouring and highlighting.
This Sigmax Kabuki Kit from Sigma run around $96.00 (here). I may be wrong, but I believe these were around $68 when they were first released. Or maybe I’m being dyslexic and it was actually $86. Either way, they were definitely no where near the price they are today. I definitely went browsing for a coupon code to help lessen the blow. My favorite has definitely been the F80 (I know, I’m late jumping on this bandwagon).
