For the longest time, I’ve been trying to go more natural with my makeup. Given that I’m prone to looking like a raccoon, it’s somewhat inevitable that I wear makeup to go to work lest I scare my colleagues senseless. My makeup used to come from a wide variety of brands usually based on price and colour. As I get older, I realized I wanted something more out of the makeup I put on my face. I wanted more natural products with ingredients that didn’t feed into my paranoid thinking.
I recently went to my local health food store and found Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette on sale for less than $15. It was a decent price especially when you consider that many big box store brands have similar prices.
Let’s just say it was my lucky day!
Product Review: What ingredients are in Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette?
Here are the ingredients that went into making the Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette: mica, caprylic/capric triglyceride (coconut source), magnesium stearate, silica, ethylhexylglycerin, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, tin oxide.
Now, I’m no science whiz and I certainly can’t remember all the umpteen ingredients that go into other brands of eyeshadow but I’m pretty sure this is the first one I’ve seen that uses coconut. I appreciate that the Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette is also 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and made without any FD & C colours, phthalates, talc, parabens, or petroleum.
The ingredient list won me over even before I had a chance to try out the makeup.
Product Review: Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette
There were a number of different palettes to choose from but I settled on this particular one because I thought the colours would work well on my skin tone. Each palette comes with 4 different shades.
Take a look. If I didn’t tell you this Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette was made with really decent ingredients, you’d probably never know and I mean that in a good way.
At the time of this review, I’ve used the Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette consistently for about 2 weeks and I have to say, I love it! The colours go on smoothly and easily on my eyelids with minimal fuss and muss. The colours work well on my skin tone and stay on for the entire day. The colours blend well with one another and honestly, my eyes felt good (i.e. not heavy or gunky) even after an extra long day at work. I mean, take a look at this sparkle!
Sometimes, I feel like people think natural make up products won’t work as well as their usual big box brands. I appreciate that the Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette is made with better ingredients. After all, I only have one pair of eyes and last time I checked, I’m not going to be growing another set any time soon so it makes sense to treat them as well as I can. The eye shadow made big claims. It claimed to be rich, long lasting, creaseless, velvety, and have a high pigment. Well, it certainly did not disappoint.
It’s reassuring to know that the Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette is reasonably priced even when it’s not on sale. Better to stick with a bit of the good stuff than have a closet full of…you know.
