Pacifica is one of those drugstore gems that really makes an impression. Every time I go to Target I make sure to check the beauty aisle for something new from the brand. From the quality, to the packaging to the philosophy, the brand looks and performs more like high end brands. The focus is natural beauty and all their products are made with vegan ingredients and are cruelty free. Their packaging is recyclable and made with soy ink. Who doesn’t love that? Boom! Extra beauty points.

The Power of Love ($19.99) is a Target exclusive consisting of 10 eye shadows; some shimmer, some matte. The packaging is a thin recyclable cardboard rectangle with a cute rainbow design. It looks very 60’s inspired to me, I was kind of waiting for Austin Powers to pop in and tell me to “behave!” 2015-05-02 01.07.17 (480x320)   2015-05-02 01.21.46 (480x213)

Neutral lovers (including me) will love this palette because it has our sought-after creams, taupes and browns but also some nice accent colors like sage green, navy and turquoise to keep it from being a snooze fest.  The are shadows are infused with coconut water for a creamy texture and easy blending. These shades are softer and sheer, perfect for creating a soft, natural or boho look with sheer washes of color. If you prefer you bright, bold colors you may want to pass.

  • Mysterious
  • Bare
  • Falling Star
  • Spirited
  • Devoted
  • Shine On
  • Treasure
  • Crush
  • Soul 
  • Luna

Bottom Line: for a soft summer boho look, run to your nearest Target and pick up Pacifica’s The Power of Love Eyeshadow palette!

Pacifica Coco Pure Makeup Removing Wipes ($7.99) are infused with coconut milk to gently cleanse and wipe away makeup. I adore the coconut smell and the fresh, invigorating feeling I get from these.  They don’t dry out my skin like most other makeup wipes thanks to the jojoba oil and aloe vera. Beware, these are not strong enough to remove my eye makeup so that is an extra step. I don’t really mind as I prefer to remove my eye makeup with and oil based product anyway. These are biodegradable, sulfate free and 100% vegan. Another plus is that there are 30 wipes in the pouch, not the 20 or 25 like some wipes have–this pack will get you through the entire month.

  • Angela L.

    I can’t seem to get enough of the Malibu Lemon Blossom, even to the point of hoarding a major back-up stash of the products’ extras…… I also loved it so much that I’ve managed to get my Mother hooked on it from the deluxe goody basket that I made up for her during last year’s Mother’s Day. I love the smell of lemons anyways but the items by Paciifica smell devine!!!!!

    • I am so with you Angela! I always have the hand cream on hand and I also love the home products in Malibu Blossom.

  • I love the sentiment on the side of the box. Really thoughtful!

    • I thought so too!
