Pacifica Beauty Animal Magic Eyeshadow Palette + Cherry Bomb Cheek Powders

I am just now getting around to posting about some new-to-me makeup I’ve tried from Pacifica.. because, well, life happens. I’ve been testing these products (plus a few others) since May and have had plenty of time to put my thoughts together. 🙂

If you’re debating on picking up something from the Pacifica makeup line but not sure where to start, this Cherry Bomb Cheek Palette should be it. I’ve seen this talked about over and over again on YouTube over the last year and have to admit, this is totally worthy of the praise. Whether you’re new to blush or just enjoy a muted, “toned down” easy to use blushes, this is for you. It’s pretty much a fool-proof formula (my favorite) and very hard to mess up/over apply. I primarily use this for the shades Cherry Spirts and Fire Lit but the highlighters are just as nice. This palette would probably best suit a lighter skin tone but can be built up for more pigmentation. While I don’t find that these are the longest-lasting blushes I do think they’re one of the easiest to use and very beginner friendly. Definitely recommend.

One product I rarely ever write about is mascara. Although I wear it everytime I wear makeup (I’m not really a false lashes type of girl) I’m also not very picky when it comes to mascara. I’ve tried mascaras that have ranged from $7 all the way up to $40ish and think that some of the more affordable brands outperformed the expensive ones. The Highest Lash Chronic Volume Mascara is a prime example. It’s infused with hemp-derived cannabis sativa oil, adds length & volume. The wand prevents clumping and will give your lashes an extra boost, no falsies necessary!

It’s been a while since I’ve used Pacifica eyeshadows – I loved the Pink Nudes palette years ago. I saw they came out with a larger palette, the Animal Magic Eyeshadow Palette. I love the big range of colors and textures. The mattes are smooth and blend out super easily and the shimmers are buttery and pigmented. I also love that they included a few metallic/glittery shades (Kitty, Bunny, Coyote.) The texture and consistency remind me a lot of the Huda Beauty New Nudes Palette. I also feel that this palette doesn’t really lean overly warm or cool, it contains a little bit of both with an overall neutral tone with muted pops of color. My kind of color story. My only gripe with this is that it’s made in China which I am not a fan of. 😕

Have any Pacifica recommendations that I should try? Let me know! I’ve added a few of their skincare products to my current routine and can’t wait to share my thoughts!
