  1. I have stopped using skin care products with synthetic substances. I find using natural products more effective and nourishing. I only had few breakouts when I felt lazy washing my face when I woke up during the weekend. It is important to keep the skin clean if you have oily skin. I used my own mineral makeup so far, since it is cheaper for me. But I find proactive makeup quite good on me but it is quite expensive.
  2. As I promised to get back to this thread after I get the answer form Coastal Scent themselves, and I finally did. Wherever they come from, I am one of those who are satisfied with the quality of their Shimmer Eyeshadow Pallette "Most of our products are made in the USA, some of them are designed by us and produced in Asian countries like all important cosmetic companies are doing, due to lower costs giving more affordable prices to customers. All productions are made under FDA guidelines and are safe to use. Finished Makeup Palettes, Lip glosses and Gel liners are being shipped out of Hong Kong."
  3. Originally Posted by Leylani Those pallettes goes for much lesser price at ebay.... They are produced in china, CS only put their name on the readymade ones. But they are really great quality. Check them out at ebay at half the price :-P I dont think so. CS made it themselves but I will check it out and go back to this thread.
  4. you can try CS Ebook. I find it very informative specially in making eyeshadow and blushes Coastal Scents: Loose Mineral Makeup Secrets Revealed. If you find it costly, you can try DIY. I started making my foundation from this recipe and constantly experimenting until I achieved the right foundation for my sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. mineral makeup recipes, foundation recipes, color cosmetic recipes
  5. Sometimes famous brand mineral makeup companies buy their products to small companies and sell for a higher price. Aside from MAC and Saphora, I am very please with Coastal Scents eyeshadow pigments. You dont need extra products to put on your eyelid to make it last long and the colors are amazing
  6. Originally Posted by Dawn I first tried Bare Mineral foundation and it was so bad for my skin. I gave up on mineral foundation for a long time. A few months ago I started ordering samples again.

I thought both were bad but later tried the second again and it turned to be ok for my skin. Sometimes you have to try a second time but I try to wait 1-2 weeks between new foundations to really give 1 a chance. Have you tried calcium carbonate? It's very good oil control. You can also try sercite treated with carnauba wax

However, there are things that people do not agree with and that's why we have forums so people can decide which one is to folow or believe or not. For me customer service is A MUST!! specially if it's is online shopping. There are too many fraud out there and it's hard to give money and have to wait for a couple of days and week or even months and for some NONE at all, to get something that you have paid for. Have a great day MS. Flowind
  8. Girl, the longest they should answer emails is two business days (weekend is exempted)..I really think that is good customer service..Longer than that is NOT A GOOD customer service... I always shop online so I dont know about waiting for a month for my order to arrive, unless I get a notification of a delayed shipment. The longest shipment I should wait is 15 working days (if orders coming from outside Canada).. Longer than that is NOT GOOD anymore. So everytime I want to order online, I contact them first. And if I didn't get answer from them within 2 business days, they are out of my list..Unless they are really a reputable and I got a lot of recommendations. But waiting for my order to arrive in one month?... Yay... Unless the order is big and heavy?.. Light weight and small orders, I usually get it in less than two weeks.
  9. Originally Posted by Flowind To tell you the truth, I actually got this in a month.

I think, no matter whatever the reason, they did lose some customers. however, i was pleased at how they replied in a week and I did get my order in a month. All in all, when I see those generous sparkly/shimmery beauties cost only little show up on my door, my smile went wacko.. I will repurchase again. Seems like I did get good customer service with them. IN A MONTH?... AN EMAIL REPONSE AFTER A WEEK?.. and you will order again?... and you call that GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE? ..... common girl?.... I dont know about that but I am not desperate with sparkly shimmery products...
  10. I have been looking for mineral shimmer eyeshadow that last long... all day... and I finally got one... Try coastal scent 88 ultra shimmer pallete. You'll be surprise how it adheres without using a concealer whatsoever to make it last.and awesome colors. It's worth every penny. Coastal Scents: Ultra Shimmer 88 Eye Shadow Palette

  12. This is the problem with some of the people who are starting a business. They dont know what to do when their business starts to grow. They dont know how to cope up with the orders. You should fisrt contact the business owner for a couple of times and see how they response to your inquiry, before placing an order. Thats what I do before placing an order. If they dont response to my inquiries promptly, this is an indication how bad their customer service is. If still skeptical, try more inquiries and see how they respond
  13. It depends on what type of skin do you have. MIneral Makeups are just like other regualr Makeups. It suit specific type of skin.
  14. We all have different kind of skin, so it's good to try samples with lee ingredients so you can easily know which ingredients is causing you som bad reactions.
  15. Face powder is fine, but mascara?... Have you ask people or a beauty expert the difference on your look when you put mascara on your lower lashes than not wearing any? We sometimes think its fine for us but to others it might not. But it's all up to you, as long as you feel beautiful on what you wear.
  16. I have acne blemishes and I am happy with how it covers my blemishes. During summer, I dont use any moisturizer before applying makeup. And it's pretty good on my skin for more than 6 hours. At parties, I bring my Matte Finsihing powder for retouching but I seldom use it. Only if I have to stay longer than 8 hours outside. I am working on oil control powder I will use for our summer vacation. We all have different type of skin. I have a very sensitive skin. Just one use, I know if the products is not working for me. L'Oreal unbelievably gave me 2 pimples on the spot after two hours of using it. Some product will work for me for a couple of days and week, then will give some bad reaction after. It has to be accompanied by proper hygiene. So far, I am happy with my own Mineral Makeup. As for signature makeup purposes, I guess I can recommend Sheer and Afterglow Mineral Makeup for sensitive skin. But for oily skin, Proactive is good and my own of course..lols... Fortunately I have some background in web programming. So I thought of selling some to my friends to break even my expenses on my Mineral Makeup and Natural Cosmetic addiction...lols.. My friends and relative love it so, I thought of creating a webstore and hoping to make a serious business from it. Basically, all my products on my webstore are my hobby in Natural Cosmetics.

I tried Proactive and it work for me but I have to clean my face soon as I get home from work since it will give me blackhead or whitehead and they only have three color choices. I tried Sheer Mineral Foundation and I love it but during summer, my skin gets very oily. So I went back using Proactive. Its expensive which make me limit myself on using. I also tried different Mineral Makeup online like Pure Anada, some are good but mostly making my skin looks very shiny and oily. Until I learn how to make my own Mineral Makeup. Now I am happier that ever. Cheaper and more effective for me. It's been a hobby since then
  18. If you have oily skin, you have to avoid bismuth or sericite beause it will turn your skin into color gray. Oily skin dont need foundation with glow since your natural oil will give you a glow after few minutes or hours. You have to find a Mineral makeup with silica and more Magnesium Stearate. calcium carbonate is also what you need to look for on Mineral Ingredients. We all have different type of skin. But most are allergic to Boron Nitride and that includes me. Some shimmering ingredient also gave me some breakout. Try to look for less ingredient so you can easily figure out which ingredients is causing your the breakout.
