Just a little update for today. I’m still in Japan right now and I’m getting a little anxious and irritated already. We were suppose to go back to the Philippines on the 26th but apparently it will be moved on June 2nd. This is not good, the first day of classes of the school that I’m enrolled in is going to start on the June 3rd. I have no schedule yet, no ID, no things, and I’m pretty sure that my uniform won’t fit me anymore. And everybody is being selfish because my brother’s school starts on the 13th of June.
How can people be so inconsiderate towards my situation? They renewed my brother’s passport last month and the agency told us it will take at least 1 or 2 months to be finished. Why would they do that? That’s just illogical. Our time here is very limited, hence, vacation. His passport is going to expired on 2015, that’s still a long way to go! This is getting ridiculous. If there’s a will, there’s a way. It’s just that they don’t want to make an effort on making the process of the passport renewal faster.
What a way to start my college life. Absolutely ridiculous.
This is actually my first time to review something, so please bear with me. But I do hope that this review will be quite helpful for some of you who are interested in purchasing something from Coastal Scents.
First of all, this is how the box looks like: The palette itself is $24.95 + additional shipping fee of $27 = $51.95. When converted into Philippine peso, it is roughly 2,100+ php if I’m not mistaken. The palette itself is not that expensive, but considering the fact that the shipping fee costs more than the palette makes it pricey for some. I’ll have to admit, I was mildly disappointed with the size of the make-up palette itself.
The main packaging: The packaging is actually sturdy; you can take it anywhere you want inside your bag if you want your eye shadows to make a mess inside its own case. Don’t worry, it won’t affect your bag, you’ll just end up with a dirty palette once you go home.
It actually came with 3 different palettes, but I can’t really categorize them by colors because they are all mixed altogether but are thankfully placed altogether by shades.
Now for the product review itself. I was quite hesitant when I first opened the package because it was too powdery for my taste. But after using it a couple of times, I can honestly say that these eye shadows are probably one of the best sets of palettes that I have ever used. There is a huge variety of colors and finish that you can choose from.
One thing that I did not like is that the topmost palette does not have any lid at all, while the other 2 has one, which makes it easier to bring and carry around (With care, of course. Note: Eye shadows tend to scatter everywhere.) For its price, it is definitely worth it, but with the shipping fee, definitely not. I still recommend this though, because basically every single shade of color you want in every finish is here. They work better with a primer, keep in mind.
So I give it a 3.9/5 stars! I still hate the packaging.
PS: I figured that I should do a separate review for the 12 brushes (set) that I bought alongside this palette.
I’m really starting to be satisfied with my shots unlike before. And I finally found the editing technique that I’ve been trying to find for a long, long time. But hey, I still can’t stop taking pictures of flowers. I honestly feel like I’m starting to be repetitive with my posts, but I also realized that this is where I’m actually good at; so I’ll be staying like this. Or maybe just for a while..
