Makeup Product Review: Coastal Scents Brow Tones Quad


 Coastal Scents Brow Tones Quad:

I purchased this product months and months ago. When I first used it I really liked it and used the lightest shade to fill my brows in with an angled eyebrow brush every single day. Using a powder and angled brush to fill your brows in is the most natural way to do so. I have always been more of a pencil for the brows kind of girl. I like them more defined and that helps me achieve that look. So why have I not mentioned this product until now and what makes me suddenly want to talk about it? This palette sort of took a back burner when I found my favorite brow pencil from Mac in a perfect light brown shade called "lingering". But recently I decided to try something different and pulled this back out. I continued to use my mac pencil but this time topped it with that light brown color from this palette. I really liked the results- not too defined and yet not too natural. As I prepared to discuss this palette I went to the coastal scents website to see some details but I was shocked to see that it was nowhere to be found. Maybe it's been discontinued or it was limited edition. I was pleased to see that they've since released a new brow quad which is so similar.The only real noticeable differences are that they redesigned the packaging and that these new ones don't have a similar color to that last one which is extremely dark gray and not very common for many brow tones anyways in my opinion. So here is what I think of it:


What I love:

-I really like that there are 4 shades in this palette. There is one to suit every eyebrow color and they can be mixed to get even more exact. Not too many eyebrow palettes come with 4 shades! This one is great for my kit or any other makeup artists kit for that reason. 

-I'm also really impressed with how they apply- nice and smooth, without any annoying crumbly fallout.

 -Their lasting power is pretty great too. Alone or with a pencil underneath. I apply the color in the morning and it lasts for a good 12 hours without smudging, shmeering, falling or disappearing.

-The compact is a rectangle shape and is pretty flat so it fits in any bag for easy use. It has a large mirror for on the go application and a place for small travel brush which makes it even more convenient.

-There seems to be quite a bit of product in each pan guaranteeing that I will have it around for quite a while (alot longer then any of my pencils that's for sure!)
-Coastal scents has really decent pricing on all their products. I don't remember how much this costed me exactly since it was so long ago but I am sure I didn't spend very much on this palette. The new brow quad that available on their website now goes for $8.95 so either way-a huge bargain.

Overall:

I really like this eyebrow palette for a very natural or defined but still more natural look.
The only thing that annoys me about this palette is that it's a little hard to open. It has one of those niches that you stick your nail into and pull upwards. I almost cracked my nail the first time I opened it. That could be why they made a new design. When I do finish with this one I'll probably purchase that new one to try. If I do I will definitely leave an updated review here on the blog.
