Pacifica Haul

      The more cruelty free vloggers and bloggers I follow, the more and more I hear about Pacifica.  I've seen some of their yummy scents around my local Harmon and Mrs. Greens, but have never really seen their skin care or make up products around.

   A week or so ago, they held a sale with 20% off some of their most popular products and I decided to do a bit of online retail therapy.  Here is what I got!

*Enlightened Gloss in Opal*
 I have heard so much about this gloss from several cruelty free vloggers.  It always comes off as a super shimmery, baby pink gloss that is perfect to top other colors with.  Also, the packaging is to die for.

*Island Vanilla Perfume Roll On*
I love vanilla scents and was looking for a cruelty free replacement to my Bath and Body Works vanilla scent.  This is a winner! It smells so good without smelling sickeningly sweet.  It's also nice to have the rollerball to just throw in my purse.

*Dreanlight Under Eye Brightener*
I've been looking for a salmon-y toned under eye brightener and this one received great reviews.  It's a bit pinker in real life, but I can't wait to play around with it and see how it works.

*Dreamy Youth Day & Night Face Cream*
I wasn't particularly attached to my last daytime facial moisturizer, so I wanted to try a new one.  Again the reviews for this were quite positive, so when I run out of my current moisturizer I will be giving this one a try.

*Purity Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes*
I have been having trouble hunting down my Yes to Cucumbers face wipes in my area, so I decided to give these a try.  I am hoping I don't love these though as they are a bit pricey, but anything coconut I'm usually a sucker for!

*Under Eye Brightener*
*Opal Gloss*

Have you ever ordered from Pacifica before?
I would love to try more products, and want to know what to try next!

September Beauty Favorites

   I can not believe that the summer is over.  Even though I've already finished up setting up my classroom and my students arrive tomorrow, I am still in complete denial that my summer vacation is over.

   However, September does mean that fall is soon upon us.  Fall is my absolute favorite season.  Between the cooler weather, the beautiful foliage and FOOTBALL, it is by far my favorite season.

   Ok, I went off topic! Here are the beauty products I was reaching for during the sweaty and sticky month of August.

*Younique Lucrative Lip Gloss in Luxe*

This lipgloss is the perfect nude lip!  It's more of a brownie nude and it works on almost every skin tone.  It's not goopy and it has a cute little mirror on the side of it- what could be better?

*Younique Splurge Cream Shadow in Noble*

Every month Younique releases a new cream shadow shade, and every month that shade becomes my favorite.  Noble was August's shade and it is a gorgeous, deep, shimmery purple.  This is perfect for a night out and especially great to help bring out the green in your eyes.

*Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation*

I've had great success with the Glamoflauge concealer's and even better success with the foundation.  This stuff is full coverage, but feels like nothing on my face!  I still get pooling around my glasses line when it's really hot out, but for the rest of my face it stays put. If you are looking for a drugstore foundation, I would give this baby a try.

*My clip-in hair extensions*

A few weeks ago my best friend and I went down to the Bronx to a beauty supply store where they do custom clip in extensions.  I of course had to buy like 10 pounds of hair since my hair is so thick but I am so obsessed! I can see how people can wear these all of the time, because they are amazing!  I felt like a new person with them on!
