Pacifica Island Life | Palette ReviewΒ 

If you read my previous post. My May Ipsy unbagging, then you have seen this little palette already.

The Pacifica Island Life palette contains five shimmer shades, and retails for a price I can not find. However, their similar palettes retail for around $14. If you use the code PACLOVE on Ulta.com you can get Pacifica products for 20% off! 


Shades from left to right:

  • Skinny Dip
  • Coral Sand 
  • Golden 
  • Treasure
  • Sandalwood 

They are all extremely pigmentedand buttery. They are all also shimmery shades, so I would recommend a companion palette for mattes. I used The Balm Meet Matte Trimony palette

The look:


  1. I used the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer, and set it with the cream shade from the Balm palette
  2. I used the lightest brown from the same palette as my transition shade.
  3. Now into the Pacifica palette! I put Golden all over my lid.
  4. On the outer third of my eye and on my lower lash line I placed Treasure.
  5. To deepen up my outer crease I used Sandalwood.
  6. For my inner corner I decided to go with Coral Sand.
  7. Finally, to high light my Brow bone I used Skinny Dip.


I was very pleased with how my look turned out! I recommend patting all of these shadows onto the eye, instead of sweeping, sense they are all so buttery. You just have to work with them. I personally do prefer some mattes in every look, so this is not an all in one palette for me. But, I do really enjoy having it because it contains stunning neutral shades. 

I really do love the brand Pacifica itself. They are a natural, vegan, cruelty free brand, that is not outrageously priced. They seem to always be on sale at Ulta.

Over all 🌴🌴🌴🌴 not five, because you do have to actually work with them, so it takes a little time. 

I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you so much for reading! Have you tried any Pacifica eyeshadows? Comment your thoughts below!

Target Beauty Box |May 2017

*Not a subscription, $7-$10 a month, keep your eyes out for it each month*

I purchased my first Target Beauty Box last month, there were two so I got both. This month there was only one. It cost $10 and came with 8 product samples!


Nexxus Shampoo and Conditioner 

These are foil packet samples, which I am fine with! 

Caviar protein complex helps replenish moisture to dry, brittle hair for a mans that’s so soft and smooth. 


Acure Pore Minimizing Red Clay Mask

I have tried this before and loved it, so I am glad to have it again! 

Moroccan red clay draws out impurities while argan stem cells hydrate and tone for a bright complexion.


Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya Bath Bombs

Guys, these smell drop dead amazing!

Dream about a tropical getaway while coconut oil and papaya help naturally hydrate and revitalize skin.


Wet n’ Wild Mega Last Liquid Lip 

If you have stuck with my blog a bit, then you know I love this formula. 


This shade is stunning.


Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask

Another mask, but I love doing masks, so I am not complaining.

White Clay helps remove excess oil, while aloe Vera and mineralizing thermal water hydrates and strengthens skin.


Nexxus Vital 8-in-1 Masque 

I like that all the hair care products are from one brand, it’s like getting to try an entire hair system.

Blend of coconut oil, soybean oil and keratin offers intensive treatment to help nourish and improve hair. 


Guess Dare for women

This scent reminds me of the smell of magazine pages that had perfume pages in it. It smells good, but does not mix well with my body chemistry.


Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Polish

I already love this stuff, and I was out of it. Excited to have more with out having to purchase from a brand that I am not 100% positive of their cruelty free stance..

That’s it for this months Target Beauty Box! Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed it. I think this months Box was well worth $10, what do you think??

NMVC April 2017 | Part 2. The look

If you saw my original Vanishing Cabinet post for this month, then you would know it is sadly my last month. If you follow my Instagram @manda_janette.   Then you have already seen the look I did for this months VC. my last VC.

  • Each buries his own
  • Sometimes dead is better 
  • Soil of a mans heart
  • Wanna play with you

Their goal this month was to create a coheasive look, and I think they did a great job. Especially for spring.

  • I started by priming my eyes with the Wet n’ Wild photo Focus eye primer.
  • For my transition shade I used “sometimes dead is better”. I really love this shade, and I have been reaching for it a lot lately.
  • I then put “Soil of a mans heart” all over my lid. It is a stunning pink with gold shimmer.
  • To really deepen everything up I used “Each buries his own” I also used this shade under my eye.
  • As my high light shade in my inner corner I used “Wanna play with me.” It is an almost iridescent pink, that does play off the shades that surround it.

Over all, I think the shadows this month were great. I have yet to use the lip product. I am really going to miss the Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet.

What did you think of this look? Comment below! Thank you so much for reading I hope you enjoyed it. What kind of posts would you like to see comment below!

Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet | April 2017

Unfortunately, this will be my last Vanishing Cabinet, my budget just wouldn’t allow for me to keep getting all these subscriptions. One had to go. 😭

This months theme is “Sour Ground” and based off of Stephan King’s “Pet Semetary”. 

It came with four pigments, one lip product, and a Sour Punch Straw! 


Resurrection “Sinister Spirits” Lip Shimmer

I have never tried one of their lip shimmers, but it seems to just be a tinted balm. Which, I am all about in the warmer months.


This is it swatched a few times back and forth. It is a pretty berry shade, that smells like grape! 

  • Soil of a mans heart
  • Each buries his own
  • Sometimes dead is better
  • Wanna play with you

There are two mattes and two shimmers, that are going to create a studying coheasive look. I can not wait to play with them.

I am really sad this is my last Vanishing Cabinet for now, because it was great! 

I hope you all enjoyed this VC, thank you for stopping by. What are your favorite products from Notoriously Morbid? Comment below!

*NEW* Wet N’ Wild Photo Focus Face Products |Hot or Not

The new Wet N’ Wild Photo Focus face products have been all over YouTube and Instagram. I had to find out if they were worth they hype, or wastes of time.


Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation “Shell Ivory” $5.99

I am actually quite happy with this foundation. It has great coverage and lasts quite awhile. I thought this shade was going to be a little dark for me, but it ended up working out great!

Rate: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


Photo Focus Concealer “Light Medium Beige” $4.99

I have seen a lot of people comparing this to the Tarte Shap Tape concealer. If that concealer is any thing like this one, no thank you. I found that it gave little coverage. This shade was also a little dark for me. It is really inexpensive though, so if you are not wanting under eye coverage, this concealer might work out of for you.

Rate: πŸ‘πŸ‘


Photo Focus Powder “Warm Light” $4.99

This powder is pressed,  but when applied it feels really finely milled. It is very light on the face, and doesn’t cause any cake! I think I found my new favorite drugstore powder.

Rate: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


Here are the products on my face after 3 hours of wear. All good besides the concealer!!

A Pop of Teal | FT. Colour Pop Cosmetics

I have a ton of the Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows, but I very rarely use them. I wanted to make a point to start, which resulted in this fun look!


I used three of them for this look, and a few of their pressed shadows!


Weenie, Glow, and Flower Shop


  • I primed my eyes with Wet n Wilds Photo Focus eye primer. I set it with CP “Locked and Loaded”.
  • I then used CP “Bel Air” as my crease transition shade.
  • After that I put “Weenie” all over my lid. I love this shade!
  • To deepen everything up a bit I but CP “Top Notch” in my outer corner and outer crease.
  • After that I used “Glow” to really blend everything out and highlight my brow bone.
  • To make my lower lash line Pop I used a light blue liner then went over it with the beautiful shade “Flower Shop”.
  • To make my inner corner Pop I used CP “Take it slow”.

I am really in love with this look.😍

I hope you enjoyed this post thank you for reading!

Should I review the new pressed shadows or do a post of my Colour Pop super shock shadows? Comment below!!

Wet N’ Wild Cat Suit Liquid Lipstick | Product Review.

catsuit3

Wet N’ Wild has been a trending brand in the beauty community for quite sometimes, but recently it seems like they are releasing new products left and right. One of these very popular releases are the Cat Suit liquid lipsticks. They retail for $4.99, and come in a TON of different shades.

Not only is this line inexpensive, but it is cruelty free, and is full of vegan products. Including these matte liquid lips!

I only decided to pick up two shades, because they were the only ones that really drew me in

“Pink Really Hard”

catsuit1

“Nudist Peach”

catsuit

Both shades are stunning and I find myself continually reaching for them. At such an inexpensive price I was not expecting the worlds best liquid lip, but their quality did surprise me.

They wear fantastic and do not dry out my lips. I found that their was no strange crumbling, and that they also stay in place. So, to answer a hot question; Yes, they do dry down completely!

They do take a few layers to reach a desired opacity.Β  They also do not last as long as higher end liquid lips tend to, but this was to be expected.Β  The metallic liquid lips preformed the exact same way.

*Two coats each”

I am really enjoying this formula and the beautiful shades that I picked up!

Have you tried this line of liquid lips yet? What did you think? What shades do I HAVE to pick up? Comment below! Thank you so much for reading!
