Coastal Scents HD Foundation Review

Coastal Scents HD Foundation in shades 14, 07, and 01
I bought the lightest shade the middle shade and the darkest shade so I'd be able to mix and get the perfect shade for most people. I tried it on today and I can't say its not amazing or the best foundation I've used. I've gotten a better finish with my MAC Studo Sculpt foundation. I'm going to try different ways in applying it and different amounts to see if it gets any better. The way I like to apply it is I put a small amount on a palette and dip my MAC 109 brush in it. Then I stipple and swirl so I'm not using a lot on my face. It's a light to medium finish. Compared to MUFE's HD foundation I can't say it's the same at all. MUFE's HD is a heavier coverage and it gives you an airbrush finish like face. As I was playing with Coastal Scents HD on my hand it felt like I had to put a good a mount on my skin to make it seem airbrushed like. and So of course HD means it should look great on camera right? I do like how it didn't give me a whitish haze on my face so that's one plus but it still looks like its missing something in the ingredients. I absolutely love my MAC studio sculpt even on camera I have nothing bad to say about it. So all in all Coastal Scents HD Foundation its a good foundation if you want a cheap foundation that gives you a light to medium foundation. I don't exactly know if it's "HD' if you know what I mean. But try it out for your self when they have a sale going on I bought mine when everything on their site was 25% off. If your an NC 40 in MAC the shade 07 should match you.

Coastal Scents Gel liner in True black
It's like anyother gel liner but a when I stuck my spatula in it, it was kind of hard. I had to warm it up back in for with a brush. So it's still a good alternative to MAC fluidline


  1. I've heard alot of people rave about the Costal Scents Gel liners, I wanna try it :)

  2. Oooohhh!!!! I went through your blog and I'm so happy that you do theatre makeup. I've been looking for more bloggers like that. Most are just glamour and stuff. I just subscribed. You're very pretty. I didn't know they came out with HD foundation. But coming from Coastal Scents, I wouldn't expect much either. And you totally had a picture with a fat guy cosplaying as Blanca. Too funny.
