"Do not let anyone drag you down with their insecurities. You know your truth and intentions. Whether others know it or not isn't your battle."

You all know my love for Sedona Lace. How many times can I mention it? Whether you are a beginner when it comes to makeup or an experienced MUA, there is always something Sedona Lace has to offer at an affordable price.
Building your makeup kit, especially when you are first starting out, can be intimidating, stressful and EXPENSIVE! It's hard to know what to purchase, especially when you'll be catering to a wide variety of skin tones.
I recommend investing in palettes! Foundations, concealers, blush, shadows, lips, etc. These will give you a wide variety of choices that will typically work for any of your clients. These also save you a bit of space in your kit versus having a ton of compacts you'll have to dig through.
I love keeping concealer palettes in my kit. They typically contain a ton of different shades and tones and in the case of this one we'll be talking about today, also different corrective shades too!
Sedona Lace has a few concealer palettes: a 10, 12, 15 and 20 color! Today we'll be reviewing the 15 color palette.
It's super small and perfect for traveling! Hard to believe there are 15 concealers in here.
These are all creams. You get a highlight as well as a green and lilac shade - these are corrective concealers. Green will counteract redness and the lilac shade will counteract yellow/sallowness in the skin!
Along with those shades you get concealers of all different shades and undertones.
Let's get into the swatches!
This is the top row of the palette!
And the third row.
I was blown away at how creamy and pigmented these were. The lightest touch into these and they applied beautifully and blended out with ease. There is no chalkiness or heaviness to them. Although they are creams, they feel light on the skin!
I get so many questions comparing SL to Coastal Scents or BH Cosmetics.
Coastal Scents and Sedona Lace have the exact same 15 color concealer palette.... But are they really identical?
On the left is the Coastal Scents and on the right is Sedona Lace.
Here is the Coastal Scents palette up close. The shades are a bit muddy looking because I've used it on many clients! But can you see how crusty and gross these look? I'm sure you're thinking they are just dried up, it happens with creams... But these were dry and chalky from DAY 1!
The consistency of these are nothing compared to the Sedona Lace palette. They are rough feeling, chalky, nowhere near as pigmented and not creamy or blendable at all.
So don't let looks fool you. They may look exactly the same but the quality is not even close to similar.
Because of this Coastal Scents palette, my expectations weren't very high. I was worried when I received this palette that I wouldn't be able to use it in my kit but I was floored at how creamy and pigmented these are! Honestly, I haven't even put it in my kit... I've been using it for myself! :)
This isn't only for makeup artists! You can absolutely keep this for personal use. You can even use the darker shades to bronze/contour!
The Sedona Lace 15 Color Camouflage Concealer Palette is $15.95!
