(mini pencil) : I love Pacifica’s body care products, appreciate the all natural ingredients and was pretty surprised when this pencil did, indeed, glide on very smoothly. The color payoff is also very good. The shade “Fringe” is a universal chocolate brown shade, unlike anything I currently have. Is this pencil waterproof? Heck no, it is not. A swatch on the back of my hand easily came off with a tiny bit of water after I let the eyeliner set in a few minutes. Boo.
The very first thing I did was swatch and try on the Art Touch tinted lip gloss in Cailyn. This is a color I’ve been looking for this season. It’s not nearly as dark on as it looks in the tube. It’s a beautiful berry color that seems to have a bit of staying power.
: I am a makeup brush addict and this was a nice surprise! I think I’ve only received one brush from Ipsy before, and the quality was much lower than this one. I have yet to use it, but it feels soft and after messing with it a bit, shedding seems minimal. The crease tip is a unique pointed dome shape that I haven’t tried before so I’m looking forward to using it.
I’m interested to try the Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser. The packaging says it is 100% Natural, USDA-certified Organic and is also “Chemical Free, Cruelty Free, Concern Free.” It contains Aloe Vera, Cucumber, and Watercress. This seems like something that will be great for my skin when it’s dry in the winter.
The next product I was excited to try was the Mitchell and Peach hand lotion. I love getting travel sized hand creams in boxes so I can keep them in my purse. The scent is called “Flora No. 1″ and it doesn’t exactly smell floral to me. The lotion itself is decently moisturizing, which is ultimately what I look for in a lotion so it will definitely find a place in my purse.
