Coastal Scents Mystery Box #2

Hello all!  As you can see from the title, this is the second mystery box I've gotten from Coastal Scents.  I've already done a post on my first box, which you can read here.  To save you the trouble, here's a little run-down of what the mystery box is.

Supposedly, Coastal Scents only runs these promos about twice a year; you pay $20 (not including shipping), for a box of completely random things that are supposed to be worth over $50.  Once you get it, there are no returns or exchanges, obviously because you buy it knowing that there is a risk of getting things you don't like.

The point is to try things that you normally wouldn't, whether it be colors or products, and what's not to love about getting more than twice your money's worth of products?  In my first mystery box, I calculated about $65 worth of things; what an amazing deal.

However, I was only okay with the things I got in the first box, so my boyfriend (the enabler), got me a second ♥  After a week of anticipation again, I finally received the box and was super happy with what I got!

Contents in their packages

Contents unboxed

I was SO excited this time because I got the thing I wanted the most --> a Divine Line cream eyeliner!  I had wanted to get that in my last box, but got the liquid eyeliner instead.  Also, I only got one repeated item, which was one of the Hot Pots, but it's okay because I really liked that color.

Values of my contents:

Black Soap ($4)
Sunless Body Art in 'Dark' ($8)
Duo Shadow Pencil in 'Copper Penny' ($3)
Lip Pencil in 'Pinky' ($3)
Duo Defining Wand in 'Chocolate/Pistachio' ($10/discontinued)
Divine Line in 'Lolite' ($10)
4 Hot Pots in 'Peachy Pink', 'Coral Rose', 'Berry Grey', 'Tarnished Nickel' ($2 ea/ = $8)
2 Mineral Shadows in 'Rose Sparks' and 'Key Lime' ($5 ea/ = $10)
Eyelash Curler ($5)
Lip Smacks in 'Bohemian Orange' ($3.75)
Small Angle Brush (Price not listed)

Total: $64.75

I really liked what I got in this box mainly because I didn't get any repeats.  There were a lot of new things I had not explored on the website and would not have known about if it weren't for this promotion.  I did some swatches of certain items but I plan on doing an in-depth post on them.

I mostly really liked the lip gloss color I got, because in the first box, I got a light baby pink color which I was not fond of, but Bohemian Orange is a gorgeous rusty orange color that looks great on me!

If the promotion is still on, I strongly urge you to try it out because it's definitely worth it!  Once again I had gotten more than three times what I paid for :) 

Stay tuned for in-depth reviews on these products, and as always, if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment!
