I decided to order from Coastal Scents the other day because everyone raves on about how great these palettes are. I picked up the Original 88 palette, the Mirage palette, the 28 Neutral palette, 10 5gm jars, 10 little scoops, a synthetic blender brush and a crease brush.

I will be posting reviews and swatches for all the palettes but I wanted to get a feel for them first and see how they perform and whether I'd recommend them. If you have any of these palettes, I'd love to hear your thoughts below and what you think the best way is to use them to get the best colour payoff.
I'll probably do a review on the brushes as well because I think I only paid like $2 or $3 for them so it would be awesome if they end up being a good alternative for those who can't afford higher end brushes.
For any Aussies out there, do you know where I can buy empty 5gm or slightly bigger sample jars in Australia? I thought that they were something that were easy to find but I have gone to so many stores and no one sells them! It's good to know that Coastal Scents sells them as a backup but I was hoping there were beauty supply stores that would stock these.
