Review and Giveaway :: Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream and Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes

Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream, Pacifica, Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes, Review, Giveaway


You know you’re the ultimate beauty junkie when you go to Target to shop for groceries but check out with a handful of beauty products. I am one and I blame Pacifica for that matter! Known for its cruelty-free products and 100% vegan stance (check out my reviews of enlightened gloss here, mineral eyeshadows here and here, lip tint here, and cleansing wipes here), I am happy to add another #loveproduct to my list, the Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream.

Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream, Pacifica, Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes, Review, Giveaway

It’s an all-in-one tinted moisturizer with subtle illumination. As such, it hydrates, primes and revives dull skin while rendering barely-there finish and radiant glow. It only comes in one shade which adapts to any skin tone when blended and buffed onto the skin. Got flawless skin? this is the only thing you need to even out complexion. Got blemished skin like me? use this as a makeup primer and moisturizer prior to liquid or powder foundation. I get about six hours of wear sans the dreaded oompa loompa. Here’s a quick comparison between #nomakeup vs. Alight BB Cream:

Since I have already reviewed Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes, my thoughts and experience have not changed: these are perfect for travel, they smell tropical coconut but they quite sting when used on the face. As with other Pacifica products, these wipes are free from sulfates, petroleum, parabens, SLS or phthalates.

I don’t want to finish this post half-cooked so here’s my “look-ma-I’m-going-to-Target” natural makeup. I used a concealer for my dark circles, set bb cream with a powder foundation, applied some blush, coat of mascara, then a quick swipe of nude-ish lippy.

    My everyday go-to style is rimmel foundation and lumene matte powder.

  2. March 3, 2015 / 1:21 pm

    Their BB cream didn't match my complexion, but I loved that subtle little shimmer in the formula!

  3. March 3, 2015 / 2:00 pm

    I got this too! It is TOO illuminating on my oily skin so I use it as a primer too!

  4. March 3, 2015 / 3:59 pm

    Very little since I am home most days. I do like to wear light eye and brow make up.

  5. March 3, 2015 / 4:03 pm

    I like a dewy foundation like L'oreal Lumi or I like to mix in a luminous primer or highlighter, as I near my 40s I feel without some luminosity my skin looks dull and lifeless.

    On most days I don't even have time to apply makeup *sigh* But when I do it's CC cream, powder, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss.

  7. March 3, 2015 / 4:12 pm

    honestly i usually just do a swipe of mascara and lip gloss every day.

  8. March 3, 2015 / 4:43 pm

    My everyday makeup is pretty simple. A little concealer and some chapstick.

  9. March 3, 2015 / 5:24 pm

    I wear mascara and moisturizer daily.

  10. March 3, 2015 / 5:25 pm

    Most days, I wear concealer, mascara and lipstick.

    My everyday, easy peasy makeup takes me less that 15 minutes. I wash my face, apply serum & moisturizer. I like to do my eyes first even on a light makeup day. Just a little color in my crease & on the lid, a nude pencil in my waterline & then some brown eyeliner on the upper lid (I like to use my Too Faced Wishes & Sweet Kisses holiday 2014 set bc it has 3 coordinated eyeshadows, a matte bronzer for light contour & the snow bunny bronzer which I can use for blush & highlighting plus a pretty pink lip gloss. If I'm going a little heavier or I'm feeling more creative I'll use my Urban Decay Naked On The Run palette). I prime my face & lightly dust with a translucent face powder (I learned this trick from Wayne Goss on YT. It seriously gives a flawless finish). Then I apply BB cream (I like to switch it up. Sometimes I use Benefit Big Easy, Ponds BB cream, Smashbox, Garnier, or my favorite, Pop Cosmetics color adjusting CC cream) either with a damp beauty blender or buffing brush (depending on which BB cream I use). Concealer under the eyes & around the nose & mouth & set my face with a loose powder. Bronzer, blush (if I have time I'll do a light contour) & highlight. Spray with setting spray & then add mascara & a lippie (color & finish depending on how I'm feeling). It sounds like a lot but from the time I put the primer on my face until I apply a lippie … 15 minutes or less! The trick is to have everything out & ready before u get started bc if u are rummaging around looking for your mascara or your blush brush you'll be wasting time.

  12. March 3, 2015 / 6:24 pm

    My everyday makeup is bare minerals foundation, mascara, eyeliner, and then NARS blush.

  13. March 3, 2015 / 6:47 pm

    My everyday makeup takes about 10 minutes. πŸ™‚ I wash my face, put on my foundation, then eyeshadow primer, eyeshadow, do my eyebrows, contour my face and then do my lips. πŸ™‚

  14. March 3, 2015 / 7:15 pm

    I try to have a very simple, "look-ma-I'm-going-to-Target" face, as quickly as I can possibly do it with cruelty free/vegan products. I've never tried their BB Cream, but it looks super on you! xo

  15. March 3, 2015 / 7:48 pm

    You look gorgeous!

  16. March 3, 2015 / 8:35 pm

    I am new to Pacifica and I love the products I've tried. I won a giveawsy last summer and was introduced to the Indian Cocunut(I think that's the name) and fell in love with it. I didn't know they also have makeup until your post today. I thought they had bath and body products and home fragrances, diffusers, etc. Now I must try their makeup and I have been searching for a foundation, bb, cc cream for some time and haven't found anything that works well with my skin and that I do not feel like there is a lot of products I my face. That being said, for everyday if I am not going anywhere, I'm a SAHM, I do not wear a full face of makeup. In the days I need to run errands I will wear foundation
    Or powder and mascara and either lipstick or a lip balm.

    Foundation and natural eyes

  18. March 3, 2015 / 9:27 pm

    Looks like too much shine for my oily mug, but I like the dewy look on you.

  19. March 3, 2015 / 9:37 pm

    This looks fabulous!! I need to try it. I'm having issues with my current CC cream. πŸ™‚

  20. March 3, 2015 / 9:41 pm

    That is great coverage for a BB cream. You look great, as usual!

  22. March 4, 2015 / 12:52 am

    You look fabulous no matter what you wear. I has alll the jealousy over here!

  23. March 4, 2015 / 1:31 am

    Honestly, it doesn't look like you have much on. Which, I know, is the point. Ha! It looks fantastic on you. And I loooove those wipes. I've tried them and used them a lot while traveling. They're wonderful.

  24. March 4, 2015 / 1:43 am

    My everyday makeup is typically a moisturizer with a little coverage (always on the search for the perfect one!) and mascara. Great giveaway!

  25. March 4, 2015 / 4:05 am

    Their coconut wipes smell amazing. I was wondering how the Alight would work on different skintones. It's a little too yellow on me though it mellows out. It looks like a good match for you.

  26. March 4, 2015 / 5:16 am

    You look great… I love the smell of the coconut wipes and love the BB cream on my skin. I am quite impressed πŸ™‚

  27. March 4, 2015 / 6:50 am

    I usually don't wear makeup only on weekends ..

    but when I do I like higher end from Sephora so I try to use it to a minimum πŸ™‚

  28. March 4, 2015 / 11:07 am

    mascara and lip gloss mostly but sometimes foundation

  29. March 4, 2015 / 2:11 pm

    It's pretty casual for my workday; very light and simple.

    My everyday make-up is literally washing my face, putting on lotion, then maybe putting on foundation and eye-liner if I felt like it, lol. :3

  35. March 5, 2015 / 12:07 am

    I think this shade will be a little too dark on me, but it sounds great! I love the Pacifica roller-ball perfumes.

  36. March 5, 2015 / 3:05 am

    My everyday makeup has to be "work" appropriate.

    I have a simple routine – mainly foundation and gloss

  56. March 8, 2015 / 4:56 pm

    A neutral eyeshadow, mascara, and a nude lipstick

  57. March 8, 2015 / 6:59 pm

    My make up routine is very tiring since I have to put on a lot of foundation/baby cream for my acne and dark circles :c I really enjoy when I focus on my eyes, though~

  58. March 8, 2015 / 7:47 pm

    i really do stick to the old saying less is more. after cleaning my face with the Clean Phase cleanser from Afrodita cosmetics I simply put a small amount of my favorite Clinique BB cream top it with a little blush, draw my eyebrows ( because I really have lack of them )! And a little bit of mascara, but it's always optional.

  59. March 9, 2015 / 2:04 am

    It's pretty simple makeup – I'm a minimalist. I wear BareMinerals foundation powder, a light dusting of a peachy/pink blush and neutral eyeshadlows from either Too Faced, Tarte, BE or MAC. I only ever wear lip balms or lip glosses; never lipstick. I'm testing out the new Bare Escentuals tinted moisturizer but I'm still partial to their mineral foundation powder

    My everyday makeup is always either bold eyes or bold lips!

  61. March 9, 2015 / 2:44 am

    Super natural, usually with a bb cream or tinted moisturizer. And cannot forget mascara!

  62. March 9, 2015 / 2:45 am

    Recently, my every day makeup has been tinted moisturizer, concealer, blush, eyebrow gel, mascara and lipgloss.

  63. March 9, 2015 / 5:50 am

    Most days I just use powder and maybe concealer on blemishes. I'd love to try a BB cream now that my acne doesn't need such heavy coverage anymore!

  64. March 9, 2015 / 9:52 pm

    A little concealer and bb cream

  65. March 9, 2015 / 9:59 pm

    Foundation and blush
