CoastalScents Starry Nights QuadCoastalScents Starry Night Quad Name

I received this Coastal Scents eyeshadow quad in Starry Night as a free sample with a purchase I ordered earlier this year. I happened to be going through some things and found it so I decided to give it a try.

As you know, I’m a huge fan of Coastal Scents. I truly believe they have great products for such an inexpensive price. I especially love the fact that they have sales EVERY Fri. I wasn’t really concerned about the pigment or quality while trying out this quad. I was more interested in seeing how the colors blended.  Here’s the look I came up with below.

I’m really impressed with these lashes. They remind me of a more natural version of my beloved MAC #7 lashes. I’ll definitely buy more of these.

 

***Oh and for my Texas beauty lovers, H.E.B. has these lashes on sale for $2.50. :-)***

It’s been fun showing you all some of the ways I use my favorite M.A.C. eyeshadows.  I listed in part 1 of this series that my #1 Favorite eyeshadow by M.A.C. is Expensive Pink.  I’ll show you why below.

Expensive Pink is a beautiful coral color that can make a statement on its own.  Using this shadow is one of the quickest and easiest ways to do a look. :-)

Of course it definitely blends well with tons of colors.  I’ll show you how I took Expensive Pink from a natural look and made it stand out a bit more.  Not really dramatic but enough to add a little extra to the look with 2 of my other favorite M.A.C. eyeshadows.

Above, I added Mylar as my brow highlight.

Here I added Sketch to my crease for more drama.

Other products used:

  1. M.A.C. Superslick Liquid Liner in On the Hunt
  2. M.A.C. Graphblack in my waterline
  3. Clinique High Impact Mascara and Lancome Definicil Mascara
  4. Andrea Mod False Lashes
  5. Black Opal Foundation Stick in Heavenly Honey as concealer to highlight under my eyes, cheek and nose highlight.

I talked about my 5 Favortie M.A.C. pigments in a previous post.  I wanted to give you an idea of how you can wear them as eye shadow.

This look would take no longer than 5-10min to create.

 I used my Pink Coastal Scents Concealer Brush to apply Dark Soul on the lid and lower lash line.  Then I used a M.A.C. #224 Brush to blend Dark Soul to my Crease.

I applied Naked Pigment with the same Coastal Scents concealer brush under my brow as my highlight.  Next I blended it down to where I stopped with Dark Soul.  Lastly I applied M.A.C. Superslick Liquid Liner in On the Hunt and Clinique High Impact Mascara.
