Swatches + Review of Coastal Scents Camo Quad-Dark

I'm still on that HG concealer hunt and decided to try out Coastal Scents Camo Quad Dark.



Price: $7.95
Bought it from : www.coastalscents.com

Product Description: Keep your skin's secrets covered with our Dark Camo Quad. This compact contains four creamy concealer shades ideal for our darker toned ladies. The shades can easily be blended to create your perfect shade to neutralize, highlight, and conceal any imperfections. With the use of any concealer brush in your collection these concealers can be applied effortlessly to create a flawless canvas.

Ingredients:Squalane, Octyl Palmitate, Beeswax, Talc, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Petrolatum, Propylparaben. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides.




My thoughts: I liked the concealer but didn't find use for all of the colors. Color B I use for under my eye and I do so with a gentle hand because the first time around I guess I put too much on and it looked cakey, so a little bit goes a long way with this concealer. Color C helped hide my blemishes which I also had to use with a light hand. I do have some acne scarring and for that alone the concealer did not do a good job concealing, I had to use skin corrector first. Color A and D I have no use for at all.

It says that the colors are easy to blend but I didn't find that to be true, I had a hard time blending it. I found the concealer to be really creamy and go on smooth when I used a lot of the product on my skin ( which didn't work for me like I said earlier since it looked all cakey ) but when I used it with a light hand it felt chalky. 

I don't think I will use this for blemishes so Color C probably wont be used much either, but I can see myself using Color B for days I only need it for a couple of hours since I didn't find this to have much staying power for longer days. Follow my blog with Bloglovin

  3. the pigmentation/coverage looks really good, shame you didn't really get on with it. I didn't even know Coastal Scents did concealers although they're not easily available in the UK, unless you pay loads for shipping on ebay. Glad to have come across your blog, following back :) x
