Best of the Fest #5: Pacifica Makeup

The Oregon based Pacifica has been the name in natural fragrance blends for years: their lotions, body butters, and perfumes (solid and roll-ons) have been the darlings of the health conscious scent world.  Since 1996 all of their skin care and color is formulated without: Animal testing, animal ingredients, FD&C color, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, benzene, mineral oil, petroleum, peanut oil, triclosan, with their products being composed of from natural ingredients and essential oils and their packaging is made from recycled materials.

Well as we saw at the Natural Products Expo West, Pacifica is reinventing themselves this Spring 2013 with a selection of new skincare and makeup products that will be available at Target.  Pacifica Creator/Owner Brook Harvey-Taylor for the longest time held out from being retailed at Target until she realized that much of her all-natural fan base lived far away from the big cities and needed Target's location, quality, and reasonable-priced selections to meet their consciousness needs.

Ever since Harvey-Taylor made that move, she was glad she did!  Pacifica is Target's exclusively all-natural line that's being exposed to a wider range of shoppers.
These new cosmetic and skincare collections are coconut water-based which acts as a skin balancer while soothing and softening.  This ingredient creates a creamy, crease-free formula that supports long wear.
One of the Auh-Mazing products of this new line is their Enlighten Eye Brightening Mineral Eye Shadow PaletteRich, lasting, creaseless eye shadows are infused with coconut water for a velvety, cream-like finish.  These four highly pigmented mineral satin makeup and iridescent shades are specially curated and designed to brighten the eyes and make you look gorgeous and awake.  (Even when you did not get a good night's sleep!) Shades include Urchin (Purple), Golden (Gold), Coral Sand (Pinky), and Skinny Dip (Buff).

Another really cool Pacifica product is their Radiant Shimmer Coconut Multiples, a palette of 3 pearly shades of Bronzed, a perfectly glowing sun-kissed color with golden shimmer shadow; Island Rose, a shimmering, radiant dewy pink shadow; and Moonlit, an iridescent pale shades of moon-kissed shimmer that can be used as lip color, blush, and eye shadow.  

You'll get your money's worth out of this $14 palette along with the peace of mind of using a Vegan and cruelty-free!  Whoot, whoot!!!
