coastal scents vs. ebay

Ok so for you guys out there that like coastal scents heres a little tip the makeup palettes you find on ebay are  exactley the same, I know some people dont trust buying on ebay but ive bought a ton of stuff and never had any problem and I can assure you the only difference in the makeup palettes you are going to find is that coastal scents prints their brand on the pallettes they buy from the same manufactores.

Un pequeño consejo para los que os guste la marca coastal scents las paletas que puedes encontrar en ebay son exactamente iguales, Se que algunas de vosotras no confiais en comprar en ebay pero yo nunca he tenido ningun problema I os assegura que la unica diferencia en las paletas de ebay y las de coastal scents es que unas llevan el nombre imprento y las otras no.

 you can find all these palettes on the coastal scents site here
Podeis encontarlos todos en coastal scents en el link donde pone here.


A few examples,although you can find just about every palette on the site.

I found Coastal Scents on Ebay in the past and yes they are the same but I guess some people might try to rip others off and sell some lesser quality items. Good post XOXO

Beautiful pallets!! Great post :)

Sylvia said...

wow thanks for your tip bc i have been debating on the coastal scents!! HMM, which palettes do you like (eyeshadows)?

Alex said...

I like the 28 neutral palettes :) and the only ones ripping anybody off is coastal scents because they are not a brand they just buy from china and clame the palettes as theirs...when they are totally not.

I've heard a lot about buying 88 palettes off Ebay. I always like buying from the company website but now I think I'll check out Ebay next time.

Alex said...

what im totally trying to get across is that there is no company website they buy the palettes from the company that sells them and stick their name on it...there is no company!The people on ebay got them in the exact same way...for example its like if i buy a book and put my name on the cover in pen and sell it for more money while other people bought the same books from the same people and sell them for cheaper because no one wrote their name on them. There is no legit company for these palettes except the manufacturers in china.

Brooke said...

Great finds!!! This is awesome :D

Barbie said...

Wow, you can save quite a bit on Ebay. I haven't purchased any of these palettes because the shipping from CS was like, $15! Not interested in that! I might have to check out Ebay! Everyone has these and loves them!

Thanks for the post!

The reason why you find them on there so cheap is because the founders of Coastal Scents actually buy these palettes on ebay, put their label on it, and jack up the prices. This has been going on with them forever. You're better off just buying them from ebay as it's the exact same palette but when you buy from CS you're paying extra for the label.

Love your blog btw!!

I bought both the Naked 1 & 2 palettes on there for $8 each. Both still in the packaging and the exact same product that they were selling at MAC for $50 a pop!
