Coastal Scents Camo Quad (Concealer) Swatches & Review

This is the new Camo Quad that just came out and is available at Coastal Scents. It is a good size compact, fits in the palm of the hand. Anything to help with dark circles and dullness is something that I am definitely interested in! You can get similar palettes from lines like Ben Nye, Makeup Forever, etc. but this is a more affordable choice for the average buyer.

According to Coastal Scents:

4 primary corrector shades: cream color correctors: Apply to clean and moisturized skin prior to using foundation; can be used on any area of external skin with imperfections.

  • Mint Green - use to cover rosacea or red skin conditions; mint neutralizes redness; great for broken capillaries around the sides of the nose and cheeks.
  • Yellow - used to cover and hide black, blue or purple imperfections of the skin such as blemishes.
  • Lavender - use to even out skin tones such as too much yellow; correcting olive skin/ offers an overall balanced finish and healthy glow.
  • Sky Blue - counteracts orange tones caused from uneven or too much tanning/self tanners/sun; neutralizes dark circles.

Pros: Nice/buildable coverage, applies smoothly, affordable palette (about $8!), multitude of corrective concealer choices to cover a wide-range of skin issues, good size - will last a long time, foundation applies easily over the top of it, clear lid so you can see what's inside.

Cons: Cream concealer may be too much coverage for those not used to wearing a lot of product on their skin, will take some practice for people not used to using concealers that don't match their skin tone.

Overall, I think this is an excellent correcting/concealer set. It's affordable, a nice size and the coverage is what I have been looking for. I can't wait to reach for this on the mornings when I need that extra help to appear "fresh-faced."
