Review and FOTD: Pacifica Mystical Supernatural Eyeshadow Palette

// Referral link // Own purchase //

So I missed the launch of Philip Lim collection for Target few weeks ago. I went about lunch time and was disappointed to see all bags completely wiped out. I browsed the clothing section and to be honest, I was less than enthused. Unwilling to go home empty-handed, I headed to the beauty aisle, hoping to find something pleasant. 

Aloha Pacifica! I see you got demoted to a lower shelf meant for a toddler's eye level. Not selling much? Okay let's cash in something for you.


Pacifica Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette ($14, 0.25 oz / 7.0g) is a sequel to Enlighten Eye Brightening Mineral Eye Shadow Palette which I have reviewed early this year. This palette features four iridescent shades that can take you from day to night.


Opal is pinkish white. I use this to highlight my brow arch and inner eye corner.
Celestial is golden beige. I use it mostly for my lids.


Moonbeam is mauve-gray. I use it mostly on my crease.
Stargazer is blue-violet. I like to use it for outer eye corner and lower lash line.

The packaging is made from a sturdy cardboard with magnetic closure and plastic cover. The eyeshadows are moderately-pigmented and a tad powdery. For a brighter color pay-off, I recommend applying it wet. Applied over eye primer, they don't crease and budge. The wear time is about eight hours, pretty decent I must say!

For this FOTD (Face of the Day), I used Opal on brows and inner eye corner, Celestial on lids, Moonbeam on crease, and Stargazer on outer corner, upper and lower lash line.


Have you tried anything from Pacifica yet? my local Target doesn't carry all their products so I'm checking out the website now....
