Shades all selected by me.
All my Coastal Scents goodies are way better than I expected. I kept hearing mostly smack on YouTube channels but I have found that these products are quite literally amazing. And the color selection is so wonderful. Check out their stuff at

I picked up a Maybelline Shine Sensational at a dollar store. It is quite a good shade, Berry Daze, and I am using that over one of my nude lipsticks. It doesn't matter which nude, they all just make a fantastic combo. Love it. I also picked up the much spoken about Baby Skin Pore Eraser. I had tried the equivalent in the L'Oreal Miracle Blur but this one did not break out my skin. Yay! Totally happy that I have found a pore filler that actually does what it says and yet doesn't hurt my baby skin. Not to mention, it is a drugstore brand that is tres inexpensive. Thank you, Maybelline!

I have quite a few favorite lipsticks, lip glosses this week and they are mentioned above. The brands Milani & L'Oreal just do the nude lipstick right. I had tried a few of the NYX lipsticks in the black packaging with the color strip on the bottom and found that of the few shades my Goodies had, the two I thought were just pink cream lipsticks were in fact so frosty I about got a chill. So disappointed in them both.I think the colors were Honeysuckle and Strawberry Milk. But I did find a nude that really worked for me and didn't frost me out of the building. Not too impressed NYX.

Since I discovered the Milani baked blushes, I have been totally obsessed with the shade Luminoso. It is just the greatest subtle peach shade that looks good on every skin tone. I do have two others besides this but they are not as obsession worthy. But the baked blushes by Milani are all worthy of your blush collection. Pick them up, pronto!

A few weeks back I was scouring my Walgreens and came across a bronzer by Wet n Wild. I thought it might be a bit too dark for me but discovered that it just gave me the loveliest of glows. Definitely quickly becoming my go-to bronzer. Right now I am using Rimmel's bronzer in Sunlight.

When CVS started having their year end 75% off clearout, I was suddenly hearing about a loose powder called Airspun. It is a translucent powder that I had never seen at any of the stores I frequented. But a few weeks back I ran across this product in my local Walgreens hidden back by the makeup brushes. I grabbed it and decided that i wanted to try this much hyped about product and I am glad I did. It does have a bit of a grandma smell but it is totally the greatest at setting your foundation. Totally worth all the hype this year!

My last item on my favorites list this week is my collection of Revlon ShadowLinks. These are boo-hooed by many of the beauty bloggers and YouTubers but I think these people are so used to high end makeup that they expect all the drugstore brands to perform the same.  But I am totally LOVING these shades. I have 14 ShadowLinks and I am impressed with them all. Today I am sporting an orange/cranberry smokey eye using Melon, Copper, Bone and two shades from my Go Palette Beijing by Coastal Scents. I am just loving how these perform. I don't know what all these other people are talking about. My shades are ones that I just adore.

I have to give a mini shoutout to the new taupe shade in the single eyeshadow collection of Maybelline. It's called Tastefully Taupe. And it is just a wonderful addition to my collection. Thank you, again, Maybelline.

Well, that is all for the shoutouts this week. I would love to hear all that you are loving makeup wize this week. Let me know. Email me at or follow me on Facebook
