Coastal Scents Creative Me #1

The Creative Me #1 color palette consists of 12 vibrant basic shades in matte. These colors are extremely bright while others are extremely dark. It has a great variety of shades that would best be used if you want to go for more than an everyday look. I like this palette as it has a light and darker shade for each color. It is also magnetized. You can switch colors in and out of this palette as you like. I think it would be great if Coastal Scents came out with more creative me palettes that had more neutral colors or colors that were wearable for almost any working girl. We don't always have jobs where we can wear outrageous vibrant colors. On the other hand the colors in this palette are absolutely gorgeous and some can even be considered dupes for Mac or Makeup Forever. Coastal Scents has always been a great alternative to those who cannot afford high end makeup. Their prices are extremely reasonable and perfect for someone who is just starting out with makeup or freelancing.

The price of this palette is $21.95 which is a great deal in my opinion. Once you hit pan on these, you can return to to purchase more hot pot shadows to fill up your pan. I have swatched the colors below. Keep in mind that these were swatched with not primer at all. The colors are very bright and vibrant even with primer under them.

Can You Tapas That? By OPI

First let me just say that I have been a fan of OPI Nail Laquer for many years. When I saw the new winter fall collection had come out, I ran to my local Ulta to see them in person. I purchased Can You Tapas That? This is a gorgeous shade of deep brown with brick red undertones. It applies extremely easy as most OPI polishes do. Application is always easy for me with OPI. The consistency is pretty thick, not runny as some polishes can be. I love this color. It is a perfect fall winter color that I think looks great on any skin tone. If you do not like dark colors, this one is not for you.
