Hello gorgeous <3 . If you are new here, welcome to my blog. This week we have a palette review from the brand ‘Pacifica beauty‘. Pacifica is a complete vegan and PETA certified cruelty-free brand, so you don’t have to think twice to purchase anything from them or read through the ingredients list. This cool brand is drugstore based and their products are in the affordable range. They have skincare, makeup, body care, hair care, nail care , sun care and perfume lines. I mean, .. that’s a lot! 🙂
Where to get:
One catch though! they are US based brand and currently ship only to the US and Canada but not international. This brings to my next highlight of this post “iHerb“, they are an amazing online store that carries loads of cruelty free & vegan brands and ships to pretty much most parts of the world. They carry most of ‘Pacifica beauty‘ brand products and that is where i purchased mine 🙂 . To get 10% off , on your first purchase with iHerb use code NEW10.
As the name suggest, this is a complete face palette. The theme of the palette is a glowy sun kissed every day look. It comes in a sturdy cardboard packaging and is recyclable, which is a thoughtful touch. The eyeshadows are mineral based and the blush, bronzer & highlighters are coconut infused, they do have a mild & delicious coconut scent. They also contain some amazing plant based ingredients like coconut water, coconut oil, safflower seed oil, brown kelp extract and ginseng root extracts . So they are practically skincare in makeup 😉 . You get the following in the palette:
- 3 cream highlighters
- 1 blush
- 1 bronzer
- 6 shimmer eyeshadows
This carries pretty much most options for face and eye makeup. The website says this product can be used to provide natural brightness. And can be used for both day & night time looks.
This is not a new palette, it is has been out there for 3 years i guess. When i discovered it, i loved the simplicity and elegancy of it. It had a good color options. I used it few times and ] already adore it so much. You could do daily neutral makeup with it, good for schools, university or office going people, If you want to do some fun looks for beach days or night outs, you can still do it with this palette.
The cream highlighters are very smooth, buttery and have a nice texture to them. Although creamy, they give have a powdery finish when applied and blended out. It gives a subtle glow. This can also be used on your lips, eyes and high points of your face.
The blush has to be my top favorite of this palette. This color is so beautiful, it has these golden specks mixed into it, you can only see the gold when you blend it out. If this is sold separately i would definitely purchase it 🙂 . The bronzer color would work for pale to tan skin rages but not for deeper skin tones. I wish they had added another inclusive darker contour/bronze shade. For transition and crease color this bronzer color is perfect, especially because all the eyeshadows are shimmery.
All the shades have name, that is cool 🙂 . The color selection is well thought through. There is a gold, pink, peach, copper and a fun color and dark color. The darker color ‘Sandalwood’ can be used for smoky looks or as a liner along the lash line. The gold shade, ‘Neptune’ would make a good blinding highlighter. ‘Mermaid’ shade has a beautiful iridescent effect to it. ‘Glow’ shade has bit of matte finish to it and would make a perfect brow bone highlighter. ‘Coral’ and ‘Treasure’ are my favorite shades of all 🙂 .The colors are very pigmented and easy to blend. Over all this is a good all rounder.
- Best for travel.
- Neutral and every day palette with some fun options.
- Best for glowy, dewy and sun-kissed natural makeup.
- Muti use options.
- Skincare ingredients and coconut infused.
- No bronze/contour shade for deeper skin tone.
- The packaging could have been made lighter and less sturdy.
- No mirror.
Most makeup products are just made of bunch of harsh chemicals. This is more on the botanical side. For a drugstore product, Pacifica has done a great job. The price is in the affordable range. This would be awesome gift option. This could be best for beginners at makeup. If you like ‘no-makeup’ , makeup look i would highly recommend this. Definitely a good a buy.
