Day 25: Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint Review

IMG_1390

When I was browsing through the more natural section at Target, I came across a brand named Pacifica. I saw they had a variety of beauty products, but the color quench lip tints were catching my eye. I didn’t pick one up right away, but after a few different times at Target, I decided to take the leap. Since then, I have bought the whole line of the lip tints. Ulta got me there with the, buy 1 get 1 50% off! I also sent one in my transatlantic box swap, and I have one included in my giveaway that is going on right now! If you haven’t entered my giveaway yet, make sure to do that! It ends the last day of this month! 

Pacifica is a beauty brand that offers many products such as: makeup, skincare, nail polish, perfume, and even candles. It was started by a lady named Brook Harvey Taylor.  You can find more information on the brand here.

I really like Pacifica’s morals! They strive on being natural! Their products are 100% vegan, cruelty free, and paraben free. That is hard to come by in most beauty brands.  I mean even Lush Cosmetics uses parabens in their products! They also work as a company to help the environment. On the back of each lip tint box it says that a “portion of proceeds support clean water.” These products were also made in the USA.

What Pacifica says about their lip tints,Give your lips the love they deserve! All Natural Color Quench lip tints packs major lip moisture, nourishing naturals and gorgeous, sheer lip color into one perfectly portable, 100% recyclable tube. Essential fatty acids from rich and amazing avocado and coconut oils leave lips luscious and healthy. Natural flavor and 5 perfect shades produce the prettiest, most kissable mouth ever. 100% vegan and gluten free. Your lips will love you back!” More information found here

Packaging 

I think that Pacifica’s packaging is gorgeous! I just love the details that they put into the outer-boxes and the tubes themselves. The lip tints come in an array of colors and the shades match the outer packaging as well.

Each tube of lip tint contains 0.15 oz or 4.25 G.

This line has 5 different shades/scents.

IMG_20140424_161308248

1) Coconut Nectar Shimmery Golden Raisin

This is probably my least favorite of the 5, only because I’m not the biggest fan of coconut. It is a nice neutral shade and it is very creamy. The shade is shimmery and very wearable. When applying it to the lips, it feels a little rough due to the shimmery particles, but once applied, it feels amazingly smooth on the lips.

2) Vanilla hibiscus Pale Pink with a Touch of Pearl

This light pink shade is perfect for everyday use. It is the most sheerest of the 5. I really do like the scent. It smells like fresh vanilla with a hint of hibiscus. The formula is also very creamy and feels amazing on the lips.

3) Guava Berry Quintessential Berry Stain 

This is actually my first lip tint that I got and it remains to be my favorite as well. I just love the berry tint that is gives my lips. The formula is amazing! It applies to the lips like butter. The scent is also amazing! This lip tint was the reason that I wanted to try the others out. This is also the color that I sent in my box swap and the color that will be available in my giveaway.

4) Sugared Fig Rich Plummy Fig with a Hint of Sexy Sparkle

I really like this shade as well. The scent is nice and sweet. The formula is very creamy. It applies to the lips very smoothly. The shade is a little darker than the others, but still very wearable.

5) Blood Orange Sweet Coral with a Pop of Pink 

This is my second favorite of the 5, just because I love the scent so much. I also love the color it gives my lips. The formula is once again amazing.

 Are you surprised that I have another Mirya picture showing up in a makeup post? Lol!  I always feel so weird taking pictures of myself, so I always add Mirya in. Make sure to check out her post from yesterday to see some updated pictures of her! I may be biased, but she is dang cute!

Overall, these lip tints will be a staple in my collection! I am very very very intrigued to try more Pacifica products!  I always have guava berry in my purse.  I’m not big on bold lips and I don’t tend to wear lipstick that often. With that being said, I feel like these colors are perfect for the type of lip look that I want from day to day. They’re more of a natural lip look, which is something that I really like about this line. They’re easy to grab and apply whenever in a hurry! Some of the shades are hard to find at my Target, but usually they can be found at any Ulta. They’re super moisturizing and make the lips feel amazing. The longevity is amazing as well. I will recommend this product to anyone over and over.

Comment and let me know if you have tried these products or if you have tried any other Pacifica products! Hope you enjoyed this post! I love hearing from you!

TAG: Best of Beauty 2013

So I recently watched a YouTube video on this tag and I thought that it was a cool tag to do with the year coming to an end. I have done a few tags here and there and I have to say that I do love doing them. With tags I can go see what other bloggers wrote about the same questions that I answered, and I find that interesting.  Some other tags that I have done is the perfect palette tag, the wintery tag, and a get to know me tag and I do have a few more that I have on my list to do. I am also hoping that some day I can create my own clever tag.

So I will admit that I did buy a lot of beauty products in the year 2013 and I just thought this tag was a perfect way to share some of my favorite products from certain categories with you!

DSC01468

1. Primer

The Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer

I honestly don’t really use primer. So I switched this category up a little and I am sharing with you my favorite tinted moisturizer. I recently got the Balm Shelter from The Balm cosmetics and I love it! It has a good amount of coverage for a tinted moisturizer and leaves the face feeling moisturized and refreshed. Also it doesn’t feel like I have any makeup on. I got mine in the color light. I normally would have gone for light/medium but this product does oxidize some meaning it does turn darker in color with time.  The Balm always does amazing with packaging.

2. Foundation

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation 

I got this foundation earlier this year. I honestly don’t wear much foundation so I am not that educated on it. But, when I do want more coverage I use this foundation. It is easy to apply. I use the brush that Tarte sells to accompany it. I have the color light beige and it works perfect for me. I also love that Tarte products are more natural.

3. Concealer

Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle

Well if you know me you may know that I suffer from dark circles. I call them my panda eyes. I do love panda bears, I just don’t want to share their eyes. Anyway, I am still on my search for the perfect concealer. I do have quite a few concealers, but I always seem to go back to this one because it is easy to apply and it does give me a good amount of coverage. I recently got the Balm’s  TimeBalm concealer. I have not used it enough to have a good enough opinion on it quite yet.

4. Powder

bareMinerals Mineral Veil

I don’t use very much powder ever, but I got this as a sample. I really do like this powder. It is easy to apply and gives me the airbrushed look. I don’t use it for absorbing any oils because I have dry skin.

5. Bronzer

PurMinerals Untamed Glamour Leapoard Print Mineral Glow

This bronzer actually comes in a 3 piece set. I did have review on it not to long ago so if you’re interested check it out. This bronzer is a nice color and it’s not too dark like a lot of bronzers out there. The packaging is also super high quality! Very sturdy!

6. Blush

Benefit’s Rockateur Box O’ Powder

I love this blush! I am always grabbing for this blush. It’s a gorgeous rose gold color and it has been featured in a monthly favorites post too! I think that the color is a nice, has good color payoff, and is very blendable.

7. Highlighter

Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter, Shadow, & Shimmer

When I wear highlighter I always grab for this one. It is perfect for a night out! I don’t have that many highlighters, but I do have some. This highlighter is super pigmented, so a light brush will do. It also can be used as an eye shadow.

8. Brow

I don’t use anything for my brows. But, I do think that if I did I would check out the brand Anastasia. They’re known for their brow products.

9. Eye Shadow Palette

Urban Decay Vice 2

I love this palette. In the perfect palette tag I said it was my desert island palette and it still is. I just love the array of colors and finishes. I am a person that loves playing with all sorts of colors. This palette has both neutrals and colorful shadows. If I could go back in time I would buy this palette again!

10. Eye Liner

Urban Decay  24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 

This is the first high end eyeliners I ever tried and I do love them. They are creamy and super easy to apply. I got a bunch of mini ones in a set awhile back. I have tried other high end ones since then and I still have to say these are my favorite.

11. Mascara

Flower Beauty Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara in Intense Black

Flower Beauty is a company that was started by Drew Barrymore. I decided to try her mascara because I thought it was intriguing with how the brush works. Basically when I use it I apply 3 coats. With each coat I turn the knob on top like in the picture and it changes the wand. This mascara is considered a 3 in 1 twist because it gives length, curl, and volume.  I just think that Drew Barrymore was amazingly smart for thinking of this mascara. I plan on doing a Brand Spotlight on this company so stay tuned for that.

12. Lip Pencil

I don’t ever use lip pencils. The only lip pencil I have I got from an Ispy bag which I haven’t really tried yet.

13. Lipstick

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the color Strip

Urban Decay came out with these lipsticks earlier this year. I have 2 of them, but this color Strip is my favorite. I felt like it was a perfect Fall shade and I liked how it looked on my lips. The application is easy and the formula is creamy. It does need to be re-applied throughout the day, but I feel like most lipsticks do anyway with eating and drinking. This color is a urbandecay.com exclusive.

14. Lip Gloss

Flower Beauty Shine On Lipgloss in My Little Buttercup

This lip gloss is from the same company as the mascara which is Flower Beauty. I really like the formula of this. It isn’t sticky at all. I hate those super sticky lip glosses! They also have really good color payoff. I do have another color from this lip gloss line, but I will show you that in my brand spotlight post coming up.

15. Beauty Subscription

Ipsy…beauty by you

I love getting my Ipsy bag each month. It costs $10 a month which I think is super reasonable for the amount of products included. I did have BirchBox before, but I canceled it because I felt like Ipsy was way better and I didn’t need to have both services. Right now the subscription services that I have are Ipsy, NatureBox, BarkBox, Fortune Cookie Soap, and Julep.

IMG_0424

I thought this tag needed a few more so I added 2 more categories.

16. Perfume

Meow by Katy Perry

I love this perfume. I got it awhile back along with the Purr perfume by Katy Perry. I got it for quite a reasonable price so that is why I decided to get both. I love using Meow for during the day and Purr for the night. I do like Meow a little better though, but still do love Purr. The packaging is adorable! I do like Katy Perry. I think she is awesome at making pop songs. I think that this scent smells very girly so if you’re not into that you probably won’t like it. But, I did list the notes found on her site down below. The scent is soft, musky, and fruity and isn’t overpowering. I do wish that is lasted a little bit longer, but all in all I still do love this perfume and I always grab for it! Comment if you want me to share my perfume collection.

TOP NOTES
Tangerine, Pear and Gardenia
MIDDLE NOTES
Honeysuckle, Lily of the Valley and Orange Blossoms
BOTTOM NOTES
Vanilla, Musk Amber and Sandalwood

17. Lip balm/chap-stick

Maybelline Baby Lips in Quenched & EOS Lip Balms

I always use lip balm and chap-stick way more then I use lip stick or lip gloss. My lips always get super chapped and I love using both these products because they’re both moisturizing, feel good on the lips, and they smell good too!

DSC01486

18. Eye Shadow Brush

Sigma E55 Eye Shading

My favorite eye shadow brushes are Sigma brushes. Every time I go to Mall of America I always stop in the Sigma store and get myself a new brush. This is the E55 which is perfect for placing shadow on the eyelid. I love eye shadow and creating looks and I feel that in order to get the look I want I need quality brushes. I will post more information on my thoughts on makeup brushes someday.

Even if I didn’t list you under the people I tag, I still tag you!! Feel free to skip whatever category you want or add in whatever category you want also. I didn’t do anything skincare related, but feel free to add that in if you please.

Hope you enjoyed this post. I enjoyed writing this. Comment and let me know if you have tried any of these products. Also please please comment and let me know if you complete this tag so I can go check it out!

One last thing…in school teachers always said that the excuse, “my dog ate my homework” wasn’t a valid excuse. I have to disagree with that because Mirya my shiba inu loves paper! I’m not saying I ever had to use that excuse in school, I was always a good student. It was just a silly thought! Hope you all had a great Christmas or Holiday and hope you have a great New Years!
