I admire your ability to do such a perfectly thin fine line w/ liquid liner. I stink at that. Keep hearing a lot about the Coastal Scents 88 & 78 palettes. I know they only run about $25 which is a steal for so many colors & understand they are richly pigmented & very blendable. This all seems to good to be true. Should I be purchasing these palettes? Are they really that amazing? I wanna believe they are just cause it could save me some major $$. Any looks I see people do using these palettes look really really good. Nice work Clarisse.

I think the 88 palette is fine. The pigmentation is much better than what you would expect from something that costs so little. You never know when you’ll want to use a random color, and if you have the pallete you won’t have to run out and spend $15 at MAC. My only complaint is that it doesn’t offer a great gold.

I find myself not using it as much as I would like. To be honest the colors aren’t that pigmented and I had to pack it on a while to get the color to show. Granted, I only used the cream/orange-y color from the CS palette in this look.

Clarisse – Can i ask what brushes you used on your eyes? Your crease without makeup seems like it may be a little less defined than most, but I admire your ability to create such depth in your eyes with the shadows. I would love to know how you did so. Again, as i mentioned earlier, your eyeliner is tres magnifique! HA 🙂

Clarisse, it looks great. I was wandering which colors did you use from the palette?. If you could, could you number them as either rows or columns to make easier to identify them.
