Win or Waste? Pacifica Power of Love palette.

pol

Hey guys!

Tonight, I come at you with a little review of the Pacifica Power of Love eyeshadow palette.

This is a vegan, cruelty free, and green beauty product. It has 10 pressed shadows, which is rare in green beauty! I am so dying to try more green beauty, so when the Pacifica brand was on sale at Ulta, I had to get as much as I could. I remembered Tashina Combs from Logical Harmony raving many a time about this palette, so I had to have it. It costs $20, but Pacifica always has some sort of coupon code you can use, and this brand does qualify for Ulta’s $3.50 of $15 deal! You literally never have to pay full price for this.

Packaging:

The palette is card board with a flip top. There is a clear flimsy window that you can see the shadows through.It isn’t the most sturdy packaging. It is made of recycled materials and 100% recyclable, so you do have to keep that in mind. There is a reason it is cardboard and not plastic packaging, and I think it is a good one. The front of the palette is white, the inside, sides, and back is printed with a really pretty circle and heart pattern. It kind of makes me think of hippies, I really like hippies. The palette itself is very slim and compact, so it makes a  great travel companion.

The Look:

If this picture looks familiar it is because I also used it to demo the Tarte mascara in my last post!

  • To start off the look I went it to my crease and put down “Devoted” as my transition shade.
  • I then decided to go all over my lid with “Soul”
  • I took “Crush” and used it on the outer third of my eye. I think this is my favorite shade of the palette.
  • After that I decided it still wasn’t deep enough for me. So, I took “Mysterious” and used it to deepen my crease and my outer v. I also used this shade on my lower lash line.

Over All Thoughts:

I really enjoy this palette. It is easy to blend and you can create a ton of different looks with it! The shades wear a long time with out creasing. I think it would be fantastic for beginners, because of how easy to use it is. There is not much powder pick back ffrom the shadows, which surprises me, I expect it with mineral pressed powders. I really love supporting brands that are cruelty free and vegan, so finding great products from these brands really does make my day. So, of course I will continue to share them with y’all!
