Coastal Scents Mirage 88 Palette

UPDATE: YT user emilynoel83 talks about this palette in her latest makeup haul video. She says the shades have an nice sheen/shimmer to them but aren't as shimmery/sparkly as the 88 shimmer palette. Click here to watch!

Are you a neutral girl when it comes to eyeshadows? I love my neutrals, but I also love gorgeous, shimmery golds & bronzes too. Coastal Scents latest palette looks like it's loaded with both!

The new 88 Mirage palette has plenty of neutrals & golds/bronzes (great for making my blue eyes pop). It also has some other colors too.

Here's the details directly from the site: "The Coastal Scents Mirage Palette" 88 jewel toned palette is full of the deepest canyon colors. From golden creams, rich ambers, crescent browns and reds, mossy and golden greens, with hints of amethyst and aqua. The colors are a mixture of Matte and Satin. Deep colors with excellent payoff in a beautiful range of colors that can be worn anytime of the day or night."

Sounds exciting to me! Have any of you, my readers, tried it? Loved it? Hated it? Let me know in the comments! :)

Streamline Your Makeup Routine!

Do you ever get tired of applying your makeup from a bunch of little cases & pots every morning? That's how Minna, founder of UNII Cosmetics, felt about it, so she set out to create something that would streamline her routine. What were the results?

Enter the UNII Palette. Unlike other palettes, which only hold certain size pans, this one is free-form. Just pop in almost any makeup pan, whether a refill or one you've depotted. Each palette comes with magnets so you can attach them to the back of your pans & pop 'em in your palette. You can also rearrange the pans in a palette to your liking or even switch a product from one palette to another. It also includes a convenient & removable thumb grip.

Whether you use this to hold most of your essentials for the day (including brushes) or you designate one for a certain kind of product (I've designated one palette just for blushes), I think you'll find this a very handy & useful product.

Usefulness & practicality are important, but so is good design, & these palettes are GORGEOUS. Gorgeous colors & a very slick design will make you proud to whip this out of your bag!

It comes in the following 5 colors:
  • Lemongrass (a greenish yellow)
  • Twilight (a gorgeous teal blue)
  • Eggplant (self explanatory)
  • Pomegranate (also self explanatory)
  • Snow (a glossy white that reminds me very much of my iMac, very cool)
If you want to snag one of these beauties for yourself, you can get them at uniicosmetics.com for $29. Their site includes a demo vid on their site & on their youtube channel, so you can see these palettes in action.

So, wanna streamline your morning makeup? Ditch the overstuffed makeup bag & grab a UNII palette!
NOTE: Above is my honest review of these palettes, which were given to me by the owner/founder of UNII Cosmetics for reviewing on this blog. This is rare, I usually spend my own money on the products I get. For more info please see my disclosure post.
