It’s all about that flashy highlight and bringing out that inner glow into summer! Pacifica’s Radiant Shimmer Coconut Multiples palette hits the nail on the head for not only an amazing shimmer, but also for awesome ingredients!
Pacifica Radiant Shimmer Coconut Multiples ($20 CAD FROM WELL.CA)
I was out shopping for a more natural alternative foundation when I came by the Pacifica products and the packaging sold me; Pacifica has amazing branding. You know it’s good when you have to find just the perfect setup. Anyway… it’s what’s inside that counts, right?
How does it wear?
Just like coconut oil, this product only becomes creamier/smoother with heat. For that reason I’d be very careful not to store this somewhere with direct sunlight! Once applied to the face it smooths on easily.
I used my fingers to warm up the product and swiped it onto my face. Once the general area was filled in I spread it out with the Nyx all-purpose brush. It has a very subtle glow (which I think is perfect.) Because it is a coconut product it may mix badly with foundation (meaning don’t rub too much onto one place.) I made the mistake of doing that and my nose did end up looking very oily. If you’re after a light glow this is awesome- if you want your highlight to be seen from space… maybe not.

I love this product. It’s exactly what I was looking for in a highlight, and to be honest that’s the main reason I bought it. The Bronzer is very sheer which makes it a very fuss-free application if you’re worried about being heavy handed.
