That's the gel liner, smokey gray coastal scent quad, and mascara.  I wear hard contacts, so I've never been successful putting anything on my waterline or lower lash. I envy you ladies who can! I end up with racooon eyes:)

You blend the colors so nice, it looks so soft, I love it.  I am not good at eye makeup so I tend to just put one neutral color and leave well enough alone. ;p  From the pics here, it looks like a nice quality eye shadow.

Okay. So I have to retract (some of) my previous post about my dislike for the bag. The mascara is still awful, but I got a chance to play around with the liner and eye shadow and actually really like the light yellow and they all blend together so well. I need more practice with the liner but it's got some good staying power! 

 

The primer and lash cards are just meh for me. I may use them from time to time but nothing I'd buy for myself. 

 

My middle daughter LOVED the bag though. She saw it and grabbed it and goes "it's SHINY". Ha! I think she's using it to carry her beloved Little People princess dolls ;-)

Thank you!  It's fun to play. The shadow quad was actually quite a bit more pigmented than I thought it would be. I love the white shimmer powder, and it blended well. I've heard some of their colors don't have quite the same payoff, but if these weren't up to UD quality, they weren't as bad as some of the drugstore brands i've tried.

Got my bag a couple days ago!!! I haven't used any of the products yet haha...It was my first day  back to school from a break and i did'nt want to wear makeup I wasn't confident with.

 

I got the grey/silver eyeshadows and I did'nt expect to like them. I have the 88 palette and haven't reached for it lately but the quad is AWESOME. The colors are really pigmented and beautiful and I can't wait to wear them!! I gave my mom the pixi primer and she really liked that.

 

I tried the eyeliner on my hand....really will have to try it on the lid...but here is why I don't really feel like it....

 

 I got loreals infallible black gel liner a couple weeks ago: HOLY GRAIL LINER!!! 10.00 , It comes with a brush that I would buy alone for 10 dollars, and it stays in place all day with a buildable black color. The brush has a long handle and is small and makes the perfect thin or thick line....my wings have never looked so good!! So if anyone wants to buy gel liner in the future....TRY L'OREALS INFALLIBLE.

I've worn the eyeliner everyday since I got my  bag! I REALLY like it. I would never pay $30 for it, but I'll use this pot up and then try something else.

It's full sized, but from what they said on ipsy's Facebook page when I asked them about that, the company considers it a deluxe size since it doesn't come with the brush.

I don't understand,.......is it full sized or deluxe sized.

The gel portion is full size but it's considered deluxe because it doesn't come with the brush top. Other than that it's full size.

I'm starting to think I must have super oily eyes:  I tried the gel liner today, and it smudged all over the place under my eyes within minutes, although it was set and would not budge when I was trying to even the line up.  Then I cleaned the smudges up, and then it was everywhere *again* just a couple of hours later.  This is actually standard with pretty much every eyeliner for me even when I'm super careful to apply it just on my upper lashline, so it must just be my skin melting it everywhere.

Try setting it with a translucent powder! I prefer the same shade so I would go with a black eye shadow :)

That used to happen to me too! Vicccky is right, try a setting powder and I also highly recommend De-Slick Setting Spray by Urban Decay. You spray it on after you finish your makeup, it really helped control my face oil and keep my makeup on longer :-)

Anyone else try the Coastal Scent palettes? They were having a sale, I couldn't use my Ipsy code, but I did pick up the 66 lip palette and the Metal Mania eyeshadow (88) palette.  I debated, the reviews have been mixed, but the grays I received blended well and weren't too dry.  At least on an arm test, the metallic finishes seem good, haven't had a chance to play with the lip stuff yet.  Still, I figured for 18 bucks it was worth it to try a huge variety of their offerings.

Warning about the Metal palette. Some of the colors may stain depending on your skin so make sure to use a good primer underneath. I have three of their other 88 palettes (Mirage, Shimmer and one other but can't think what it is off hand) and found some of the blues and purples tend to stain on me. Also, like other shadows these look even hotter when foiled.

Yup! Like Zadi said, the blues can stain (use a good primer) but after washing your face at night and I wash mine before putting on makeup the next day, the stain is gone. I have the 252 palette, 120 palette, go palettes, 88 shimmer, 88 metal and 42 shimmer shadow/blush and I just adore them. They're awesomely pigmented!

Awesome, thanks to you and Zadi for the feedback.  I typically use UD primer, I'll have to see if I have staining.   I always scrub my eyes at night, otherwise as a contact wearer my eyes bug me the next morning, so crossing my fingers that works.  

 

I am now officially not allowed to bring in a any more shadow into the house. Between my UD addiction, mineral eyeshadows from Sweet Libertine and BFTE, I'm never, ever going to use all I have...but but but there's still more colors. :)

Enabler Alert:

 

Coastal Scents has their 22 brush set on sale for $22!  I paid $29 incl. shipping and I am delighted since I have being interested in this set for a while. The Ipsy code did not work on it, but I am still quite happy with the deal I got.

Good deal for brushes but I don't use animal hair so I won't be getting it. 11 of them are 'Pony Hair' and one is 'Goat Hair'. No thank you!

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
