Coastal Scents 88 palette & day with my babycakes ♥

Kota's dad wasn't available to watch him while I was in class today; so I took the day off. I planned on taking him to the beach for a little while, but we accidentally slept in! Kota got up at 7 and made himself comfortable again in my bed, and we ended up sleeping untill 11! It was nice. ♥ Instead of the beach, we went to my mom's house to visit her and now my babycakes is napping on my bed next to me. :-) I love lazy days like these. I need more of them...

I finally got my Coastal Scents 88 palette after ordering it about 3 weeks ago! Although I think shipping was a little slow, I have nothing but good things to say about this palette!!! The colors are so vivid and pigmented!

Yesterday I used the palette to do a pretty neutral look. Kind of a tan/mauve smokey look. I put my makeup on before class and about 7 hours later, it still looked like I had just done it! They staying power is impressive! The colors you see in the picture will look the same when you put them on your eyes. I just can't get over how pigmented these shadows are! And they go on so smooth! I usually wet my eyeshadow brush to make shadows creamier and brighter. I didn't have to do that with these colors!

I'm sure i'm like, the last person in the world to get this palette. But thats okay. I'm happy I finally have it. I don't think i'll have to buy any more shadows for a while! If you don't already own a Coastal Scents palette, get one ASAP!!!
