Just wanted to share a little "Face of the Day" post using a brand new palette! It seemed like as soon as I mentioned the Coastal Scents Revealed palette in my Rediscovered Palettes video, they released a second version! As soon as we got an internet connection in our new house, I placed my order for it. In case you're not familiar with the original Revealed palette, it's loaded with dupes for the Urban Decay Naked 1 & 2 palettes (I've outlined those dupes here). This palette seems to have lots of rosy shades- similar to the Naked 3 in many ways. I haven't yet matched up the dupes, but I'm sure that will happen in a future post, once I get more familiar with this palette. For now, I thought I'd just share this look since I'm so excited about these pink/berry shades! :)
I got this palette for $19.95 at CoastalScents.com. There are 20 shades, and they're a variety of matte & shimmer finishes. The top row is loaded with soft pinks and rose golds, and the bottom row has deeper berry tones.

When I get a new palette- I must get my hands in it!! Here are swatches of all the shades with no primer underneath. This isn't an actual "review" of the palette (it's only my first day playing with it!), but the textures of these shadows seem really rich and I see lots of potentially awesome color combinations.
For this look, I used a couple of the light pinks from the top row on my lid (top row, 2nd & 3rd from the left), and then used the deep burgundy (bottom row, 4th from the right) in my outer corner, along with the dark, almost-black plum (bottom row, 2nd from right). I used the rose gold shades in the upper right as a transition color to help me blend out the deeper crease shades. On the lower lashline I used that black/plum on the outer part, and smudged a gorgeous mauve on the inner portion (bottom row, 4th from left). I used the matte pink (top row, 2nd from left) as a highlight under my brow. I thought these shades were so easy to work with! This overall pattern of this look isn't drastically different from the kind of look I do on a regular basis, but I just wanted to get a feel for these shades and how they blend. So far, I'm really impressed! I'll definitely review this soon, and please let me know if you're interested in any tutorials! The lashes are the Eylure Naturalites Superfull false lashes from Ulta. One more thing-- I'm loving this lip color! It's the L'oreal Glossy Balm (jumbo lip pencil) in Lovely Mocha. Isn't it a great "your lips but better" shade! There's another video I need to do soon! :)
- It was great to see my parents over the weekend! My mom helped me with some flower planting outside, as well as a couple of arrangements inside. She's got a great eye for that kind of thing, and hopefully I benefit from her green thumb, too. It was sunny & hot all weekend long... great pool weather!

- I am in love with the light fixture in my makeup room.
- We closed on our old house! The couple who's buying it seems really nice. And the lady said she was familiar with my videos so she knew what she was getting into with the pink room!! :)
