Product Review- Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream
Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream Review
From the Brand:
Think sheer moisturizing tint with benefits. A true multitasking miracle that hydrates, primes, illuminates, and perfects leaving a sheer bare skin finish. Specialized mineral pigments that instantly adjust to your skin shade allows one color to work for many. The sheer application can be built up for just the right amount of coverage. In addition, this amazing BB Cream formula contains high performance anti-aging botanical ingredients that revive and re-mineralize skin for a natural glow. Your skin will look natural, dewy, youthful and radiant without looking like you are wearing heavy make-up.
What you should also know: Don't expect this to be a heavy foundation. This is more close to a tinted moisturizer leaving you with a natural finish.
Retails for: $16.00
Where to Buy: Pacificaperfume.com, Select Target stores
My Thoughts: I wish this came in more colors. I love the finish of this BB cream. It has a very soft glow to it, almost like a luminizer but not as shimmery. I'm so pale in the winter that it was too dark for me. It tinted my skin just enough to look almost dirty. I definitely can't wear it on it's own without some foundation over it to bring my color back to normal, which kind of defeats the purpose of the BB cream. I'm not one of those people who use a BB cream as a moisturizer. There really isn't a whole lot of pigment to it, so if you're looking for coverage I'd go elsewhere. But if you're fair skinned, you do need to get a different brand, too. Not sure if it would be enough to wash out a darker skinned person or not.
Final Verdict: It will be time for a retry and probably follow up post this summer when I have some sun and get little tanner. But the finish is great, it feels nice on my skin, and it gives some hydration.
