For the first time since I have been on IMBB, I am happy that nobody can see me now. I am dancing in a way that is not for anybody’s eye but me; I am happy!!! I just (October 19, 4.00 pm) got the Coastal Scents brushes I had ordered on 11/10/2010. So I got these in just over a week. (My dad was telling me it would NEVER come!!)
This was my first buy from Coastal scents (Thanks Ki for the recco.. love you!!). I was longing for some decent brushes, especially for eye makeup, for a long time now. But also I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on them. So I was definitely against buying MAC or Inglot brushes. Then Ki gave some amazing reccos and I ordered the following brushes.
Shipping Method: USPS First-Class Mail International -The cheapest one.. ;)!!!
The package arrived in wrapped bubble wraps and bright fuchsia packing paper. All the brushes were in fine condition and nothing was broken/torn/damaged.
The brushes came individually packed.
I’ll be reviewing these brushes after I have used them for a while.
Here’s a sneak peek.
1. Chisel Fluff/Pointed Crease Duet- $3.95
It is dual brush with fluffy blending brush at one end and pointed crease brush at the other.
2. Sable Contour Brush- $1.79
It is a round contour brush. It’s semi-firm and useful for crease work and detailing.
3. Chisel Detail Mini Brush- $0.99 (Got it on sale. Yay!)
This is a cute little brush for small detailing like highlighting the inner eye corner etc.
4. Chisel Angle Fluff Shadow Brush- $2.00
It’s an angled fluffy shadow brush. The bristles are soft and angled to fit the contours of eye.
5. Divine Taklon Liner- $1.95
It’s a synthetic Taklon angled liner brush. The bristles are very soft and perfectly semi-firm.
6. Destiny Duo Fiber Stippling Brush- $7.95
I have never used any type of brush for foundation before. So I am very excited about this. Amazingly soft and light.
7. Angle Blush Brush- $4.50
I still love my Vega blush brush, but this one is a fat little brush with a small handle, Very dense, very soft.
8. Black & Hot Pink Angled Kabuki- $9.95
Meet my new love!!! I can marry this brush. I love it like anything. Saying that this is soft would be an insult to its velvety, almost fluid bristles. It’s painfully pleasurable. Hmmmmmmm…..
9. Zipper Makeup Case Leatherine 10 Slot- $4.95
I got a nice leatherine case to hold these beauties. It has 10 slots but holds at least 20 brushes. It has 3 large slots and 7 small ones. Here it is-
My first impression of all the brushes is very good. They all are clean, soft and seem dead useful. I also got an eye shadow sample free with my purchase. It is a loose powder mineral eye shadow called lace sparkle. Here’s the shadow and the swatch. It’s a very pale pink with a loooooot of silver shimmer.
I am looking forward to using all these.
I would review these for you, but my verdict is almost positive.
Hope you like my haul.
