Hello IMBB family,
Today, I have a lipstick from the brand “Pacifica” up for review, with the shade name “Nudie Red.” Read on for more details and swatches.
Super power natural lipstick with wearable satin finish in a fully recyclable tube! Shade your lips with incredible lasting color. Introducing Power of Love natural lipstick. Amazingly creamy, highly-pigmented, and naturally moisturizing; packed with all the vitamins and antioxidants your lips crave. Made with coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin E. Formulated without animal ingredients (including carmine, beeswax and lanolin) or animal testing, FD&C colors, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, propylene glycol, SLS, gluten, peanut oil and other ingredients you don’t want on your skin.
My Experience with Pacifica Power of Love Natural Lipstick – Nudie Red:
Starting with the packaging, the colourful card box is bombarded with clip art and details. Inside, there’s a slender white casing which houses the lipstick with a slanted tip. It closes tight, so is safe to carry around. The packaging is just fine, nothing too exciting, it’s typical drugstore.
Pacifica Power of Love Natural Lipstick comes in 5 shades. The shade “Nudie Red” is a medium intensity neutral red, with a matte finish (although the brand doesn’t claim it to be a matte lipstick). The shade seems to me a mixture of brown and red, which makes it an everyday shade, suitable for nearly all undertones and complexion. The setback is the formula; the lipstick isn’t creamy or moisturising as claimed. It feels drying on the lips. The application involves a bit tug.
I always need a lip balm underneath to make it glide on smoothly. For creamy finish and moisture, a coat of lip balm is must with Pacifica Power of Love Natural Lipstick to avoid dry lips. Also, it tends to clump on dry lips.
The lipstick settles into fine lines of lips and feathers when applied with a lip balm. It carries a mineral oil-based fragrance, which vanishes after a couple of minutes, but the wear time is great. It hugs lips indefinitely, until I take a meal. It survives the regular coffee, water and snacks. I can average out the longevity as 5-7 hours.
