I was on a directed mission in Whole Foods (aren’t we all, it’s like the Target of food and beverage) only to pick up water and some items for Holiday travel when I stumbled upon this new makeup line by Pacifica. Yes that Pacifica the perfume and fragrance Company. I personally own a couple of Pacifica Perfume products one of my favorites being Hawaiian Ruby Guava solid perfume, and I trusted the brand so I decided to play around with some testers especially when I saw a beautiful rose gold, and yellow gold in a shadow palette. There was another lady of a totally different skin tone there too mesmerized by the line we stood there in glee and talked for 20 minutes all while deciding what pieces from the line we “needed”. The one thing both of us were amazed by is how the Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream both worked for her and I, she was a fair skinned woman with dark greenish-brown eyes and beautiful strawberry blonde hair and I'm a jet black haired brown skinned lady. She said "wait will this work on you too, try it on your hand" I did and we both ooooh’d and ahhh’d! Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream is designed to be sheer and adjust to your skin tone, however you can build it up for more coverage. Since I don't wear foundation, and wanted to move away from tinted moisturizer (they seem to heavy now too) this is a perfect item it's light coverage but the mica in it gives you a beautiful dewy glow plus it’s has Jojoba Ester, two different plant leave extracts, and coconut water and more which help promote anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory properties. While it's not 100% natural I recognize 99% of the ingredients and they are all from nature! Great job Pacifica, sad for my budget because I'm making another trip to Whole Foods tonight to pick up the Enlighten Eye Brightening Mineral Eyeshadow Palette (they look NOTHING like the do online the colors are much more vibrant in person) and the Smolder Eye Lining Gel in Tahitian Pearl. I’ll be doing updates on the line on my YouTube channel very soon, which will include me wearing the products!
