Pacifica Beauty Haul

Hello!! You guys, I am so excited to write this post! I’m excited because I am about to share with you one of my favorite brands, Pacifica. Now I first heard about this brand from my older sister who received one of their products in her ipsy bag. Ever since then I have loved their products! Not only is it quality beauty products but their products are two of my favorite things – 100% vegan and cruelty free. I don’t think I have found a beauty line that I have like so many of their products, as much as I like Pacifica.

You’ll notice that 3 of the 5 products listed have coconut as an ingredient. Coconut water/milk/oil has done WONDERS for my skin, face and life. If I am ever looking for new products and it has coconut listed as an ingredient, there is a 95% chance I’m going to purchase it haha. Alright, let’s get to the good stuff. Below I will list everything I purchased and the link so you guys can check them out for yourself! Enjoy!

Pacifica Coconut Milk Cream to Foam Face Wash: I have used this face wash every single day since I bought it. I absolutely love the fact that it is cream to foam. It is gentle on my skin from start to finish. I wash my face with this twice a day (once in the morning and once at night). I love that after every wash my skin looks cleaner and clearer.

Pacifica Coconut Probiotic Water Rehab Cream:  This cream has been a LIFESAVER! I have had a hard time finding a cream for my face that I really like. This product smells great and feels great on my skin. It dries quickly which made it easy to work into my everyday routine. I will apply a small amount to my face every morning before I put on my makeup. It keeps my face moisturized throughout the day under my makeup. I think that as the weather gets nicer it is nice to have a reliable face cream to keep you looking good all day.

Pacifica Super Flower Rapid Response Face Oil: I never knew how much I love face oils until I found this one. I have always been unsure about oils because I have combination skin. Which means my face gets dry and oily, sometime at the same time. I have started using this oil right before I go to bed. I feel like this allows enough time for my skin to fully absorb all the vitamins.

Pacifica Stress Rehab Face Mask: This mask worked wonders on my bags under my eyes. Some nights I get horrible sleep and using this mask in the morning before I start getting ready helps me get my day started off nicely. I would recommend to anyone who wants a little more tightening or anyone who wants to reduce puffiness in their face.

Pacifica Pollution Fight Face Mask: HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS!! This is the most AMAZING face mask I have ever used! First of all, it smells delightful. Second, it made my face so clear the next day! I have never seen such a fast acting formula. I would recommend this mask to every one I know.  It really does pull out dirt and other gross things from your face.

I could honestly go on and on about this brand and their products. I am so happy that I have found a brand that I love and meets so many of my needs. I can’t wait to try more of their skin care products and branch out into their makeup as well. Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products or any other Pacifica products!

Every Day Makeup

Hello!! Let me start off this post by saying I am not a morning person. I have an 8a.m.-5p.m. job and every day is a struggle for me to wake up with enough time to get fully ready for the day. In the past I would try to squeeze a full face of glam makeup in about 15 minutes of getting ready…the results were very bad. As I’ve grown up – and accepted that I will never leave myself enough time to fully get ready in the morning – I have perfected my everyday makeup look! I am very excited to share with you my favorite products and as always I will link each product down below!

Okay, so, I have just included my makeup portion of my routine. Before I put any of this on my face I will wash it and apply moisturizer! Let’s get started:

No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation: I get the shade “Cool Vanilla”. I have been using this foundation for YEARS!!! It really is my holy grail product. I use this all year – on the days I do a full face of makeup – and have never had any problems with it. It is hypoallergenic, so it doesn’t make me break out. It is also full coverage but doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It blends very well! This brand has a lot of foundations like this one, but my favorite part about this specific on is that it is matte. I have weird combination skin and I don’t really like the “dewy” look that other foundations tend to create. I recommend this to everyone I know!

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer: I get this product in the color “Fair”. I like this product because it I can go a day with only this on and it last all day long. I have very red cheeks and nose and this concealer does a really good job at making my skin look even. It is also a great price and I can find it at pretty much any drugstore.

L’Oreal Lash Paradise: In the color black. I originally got this product because I heard it was a dupe for the Too Faced “Better Than Sex” mascara and let me tell you….I was not disappointed! It really thickens your lashes while spreading them out. It doesn’t go on clumpy and it comes off easily at the end of the night. I will put on a coat of this mascara

Revlon Color Stay Liquid Eyeliner: In the color black. I really enjoy the liquid eyeliner that have a felt tip. I have a love/hate relationship with winged eyeliner and the felt tip helps make it more love and less hate. My only issue with this specific liner is that if  I mess up or try to remove any part of it, it smudges real bad. So I end up wiping my all the makeup off around my eye.

L’Oreal Brow Stylist: In the color Medium Brown. I really like this product. I fill my eyebrows in every day just to give them a little more shape and fullness. In the past I would just use a dark brown eye shadow and an angled brush until I found this product. I have always been a little weary of eyebrow pencils or other filler products because I don’t like the look of wet eyebrows. This product doesn’t do that at all!!! It also has a bunch of product in the pot so it last FOREVER!!!

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter: In the shade “Champagne Pop”. This highlighter is something that I have wanted to purchase for a very long time. A few months ago I decided that I needed to “treat myself” and get it. Best. Decision. Ever. I had a hard time deciding what shade I wanted, but Champagne Pop created more of a “golden goddess” type look that I wanted. It is nicely pigmented and goes on so smoothly. I think that this product is worth saving up for.

No7 Match Made Bronzer: In the shade “Caramel”. I just recently found this product while wandering around target. Like I have mentioned above I absolutely LOVE the No7 brand foundation, so I figured I’d give it a try. This brand has yet to let me down. I am so impressed by how the color looks on my skin. It looks like a bronze and not a weird orange/brown color.

Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Lace Makeup brush Set- 6pc: In the lace pattern. I also found these brushes while wandering around target. The second I saw them I knew I had to get them. I got the whole set for $20 and it is by far the best $20 I have ever spent. The brushes are so soft and just such great quality. I use them every day.

June Beauty Haul

Recently, I needed to refresh some of my beauty products. This time around I decided to treat myself with a few extra beauty goodies!!! Some of these are my go-to products and some are products I’ve never used before (reviews soon to come). Alrighty! Let’s get into the haul!

Revlon Perfect Style round brush: I have been needing a new round brush to use when I blow dry my hair. Using a round brush really increase the amount of volume of my hair, giving it a nice blowout look.

Dove Mousse: I apply a small amount of mousse to my roots before I blow dry. I don’t use this every time, but on days when I want a nice blowout, the mousse and round brush are my go to products!

TRESemme Dry Shampoo: I live on dry shampoo. It’s the first thing I reach for on days where I feel like my hair is less than lovely. I usually go for the Dove Dry Shampoo, however the store was out when I went shopping so I picked up this one! I have used it and I still find myself wanting the Dove brand. This one just sits on my hair a little more than the Dove brand. So my roots do look a little grey when I use this brand, but I will live with it for the time being!

Bella Beauty Beauty Blender: I have used beauty blenders before, but I always feel myself reaching for a foundation brush. It really depends on the day and my mood on if I use a sponge or brush. I just bought this new one cause my old beauty blender was gross.

The next few items I purchased at my work, Francesca’s, and have never tried before! I am very excited to try all of these product! I hope to put up a review of all of them (at some point in the near future). So here is pretty much my first impression of the products before actually using them.

Put Your Face On makeup bag: I absolutely love this bag! I have a weird obsession with makeup bags. I own about 6 of them and  I still want more. I like to use them to organize my everyday beauty products, especially when I travel. It makes it easy to just grab the bag I need and head out.

Nugg Lip Mask: This is a nourishing lip mask. It smells nice and I’m very excited to try it. The weather has been hot and dry, and it has not been very nice to my lips (or skin).

OhK! Avocado Sheet Mask: I am a little nervous about using this mask. I don’t really like avocado…so I am hoping it is nicer than just slapping some whipped avocado on my face.

Lapcos Sheet Masks: I bought a few of these! I got the Pearl, Honey, Charcoal and Milk sheet masks. Each of them have different purposes; the pearl brightens, the milk moisturizes, the charcoal is for pore care, and the honey is nourishing.

All of the sheet masks that I purchased are Korean brands. You can find them online through the Francesca’s website or on the brands website. I am unsure if you can find these sheet masks anywhere else. Again I am very excited to use these and I will be putting up reviews of each of them!
