My seven-year-old is pretty adamant that unicorns exist…somewhere. They’re rare, and we don’t have them where we live, but they’re real because, “You don’t know. You just don’t know that they aren’t out there somewhere… People don’t know for sure!”
* Insert insistent head shaking and hand gestures to go along with this exclamation. *
Pacifica Dream Big Lash Extending 7-in-1 Mascara ($14) is as rare as a unicorn.
To begin with, the packaging is to. die. for. It’s got a Disney Fantasia vibe that I love, and as a makeup lover I’m all about the adjustable “magic wand” that allows you to select either volume or length (or both).
But what makes this mascara so exciting for me is that it contains natural plant fibers to take lashes to great heights. In my experience, it’s not easy to find a natural lash product that can make as big of an impact as this one — so when I find a plant- and mineral-based mascara this good, I’m convinced that there must be unicorns out there, somewhere.
Armed with an adjustable brush, Pacifica Dream Big mascara is “flexible.” I’ve been favoring applying the first layer (or two…) with the wand extended for length, and then twisting the cap to shorten the wand and adding a few coats for volume. There are no rules to makeup, though, so if you favor one or the other, there’s no need to change the wand. But I have to tell you that it’s fun!
What makes Dream Big a “7-in-1” product are the extra benefits. It works as a lash serum, provides instant length, lifts lashes, volumizes, conditions and applies rich color, all with an adjustable brush that extends and retracts.
Over time, Dream Big is supposed to help improve natural lash length and volume, and because the formulation is natural, Pacifica’s unicorn-inspired lash product also conditions your lashes.
While I can’t speak to the long-term benefits, I can speak to the short-term ones I’ve seen during day-to-day use. My lashes do feel conditioned when I remove my makeup at the end of a long day, which is unusual for someone used to applying traditional, non-mineral- and plant-based mascara. Moreover, I was surprised at how much this plumps and lengthens, given that it’s beneficial, too! It must be infused with unicorn giggles.
Have you tried Pacifica Dream Big Lash Extending 7-in-1 Mascara or a similar product with an adjustable brush? And how do you feel about natural mascara formulas? And unicorns in general?
