Coastal Scents Mystery Box


A little while ago I noticed that Coastal Scents had released this wonderful little idea - a mystery box! For only $19.95, you get a box of surprise goodies worth $50! I've had this for a little while, but keep forgetting to blog about it, so I figured

So, what did I get in my mystery box?


All of the goodies together!



Detailed Pointed Synthetic Brush & Large Shading Brush

Not available on the website

The moment I saw these, I fell in love. How cute is the pastel pink handles, and I desperately wanted more, however, they aren't available on the website! Honestly, I don't really need any more brushes, but how could you not love them?



Pink Kabuki Brush
Full size; $4.99

I was extremely disappointed to receive this. I had already bought one just before my spending ban when they were on sale, so there is really no point in me having two. I assumed they would look at your previous orders and go from there, but I don't think that is the case. Oh well, perhaps it will be included in another giveaway!


Mineral Eye Shadow Pots x3


Mineral Eye Shadow in Fiji Twist
Full size, $7.95 

This is a gorgeous gold shadow, even though this photo makes it look a little bit yellow! It's not too sheer and stays on incredibly long! This was my first experience with mineral eye shadow, and I liked it! 


Mineral Eye Shadow in VenetianFull size, $7.95 

Venetian is a pretty pinkish brown colour, bordering on the pink more so. This was probably my favourite of the three, however, is not extremely wearable. 



Mineral Eye Shadow in Bloom

Full size, $7.95

This colour was more of a browny pink and is actually very similar to Venetian, which was also a little bit of a letdown. But the colours actually work extremely well together, and make Venetian a little more wearable, so it wasn't a complete loss! 




Miniature Brush Kit

Not available on the website




I was really happy with this little set! I've noticed it's nowhere on the website, like the other pink brushes, so I'm not sure how much this is worth. The brushes are extremely good quality and feel lovely, and this is the perfect size and brushes for my handbag! I've been meaning to get a little set for the handbag, and this is it!


So overall, what did I think of the Mystery Box?

I think it has its ups and downs. There were things I loved, and things that were so-so. I think this is going to be the case no matter what, though.
I'd definitely try this again as I think it's worth well over $20. I can't say for sure if it's worth $50, but hey, I'm not paying $50 anyway so who cares!

What did you think of the Coastal Scents Mystery Box? Would you give it a go?

    1. I'm not sure, it's still on their website but as "sold out" so I'm guessing they will do it again soon! I stalk their website for deals constantly so when I see it back in stock I'll let you know :P
