This is the Coastal Scents Creative Me #1 Palette and I was actually talked into this palette because I was very unsure if I would actually use the bright colors. Needless to say after I received it and saw all the rich vibrant colors and the quality this palette has quickly found a home in my kit. The $14.95 price tag also adds to the appeal!
This palette needs no introduction, I personally think this has been a MUST have since Urban Decay introduced it to the publics a few years ago. Even though we have a Naked 2 palette the old original still remains my favorite. It has 12 complimenting shades that will give you everything from a nude neutral eye to a sultry smokey. This is my must have for bridal season!
This Graftobian Glamour Cream foundation palette is probably my favorite HD cream foundations! I was watching a video from Makeup By RenRen on YouTube and she had recommended this product for an artist kit and once I purchased it I have been obsessed ever since. There are 18 shades in each palette and 3 styles to choose (Cool, Neutral, & Warm) so you will have a shade for every skin tone. It’s virtually 100% pigment and provides a smooth even finish on all skin types, so this is a definite must buy.
Having only purchased this item about 3 months ago, I was surprised with how quickly it has become the one palette that I am constantly reaching for. Everyone who knows Ben Nye knows the quality of it’s products and how pigmented the shadows are. There are 8 shades to choose from in this Essential Eyes and it’s a mix of both cool and warm matte shades. I use this for everything from filling in brows to sultry night-time looks. It photographs beautifully and it’s refillable!!!!
Rounding off my Top 5 is probably one of the first palettes I ever purchased for my bridal kit, the Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Eye Palette. If you do ton’s of bridal beauty like myself then you really need this palette in your kit like right now! I continuously purchase this one palette because the pigments are amazing, the have a wide range of cool and warm tone colors, and I have used this one palette on the eyes, contour and highlight for my brides. It photographs in HD flawlessly, blends like a dream and over the years Coastal Scents has kept the same high quality standards. Many companies have tried to duplicate this palette but this is by far the best!
