“Mo’ coco, mo’ coco, mo’ coco!”
Those are either the lyrics to Ice-T’s comeback song/ode to his voluptuous wife (is that woman’s butt for real!?), or what goes through my head when I open the new $12 Pacifica Radiant Shimmer Coconut Multiples.
Pacifica infused this palette’s multitasking bronze, pink and beige shimmers with coconut extract, and if you put a little on the back of your hand and sniff, they even smell like it.
The colors feel kinda wet and creamy in their pans but dry down to a powdery finish as you work them into your skin.
Wear ’em on your cheeks, eyes, lips — heck, your entire body — for sheer color and a soft glow.
And if you want more pigment, you can always layer.
Be careful with these and contact, though. They scoot around and eventually disappear if I forget I’m wearing them and touch them at all.
I mostly wear them on my cheeks and lips, although I’m not really crazy about ’em as lip products. They’re quite sheer and feel dry.
In a pinch, they’ll do as blushes and highlighters, but they get wiggly on me throughout the day and only last about 4-5 hours, so they’re not the first face products I’d reach for.
PRICE: $12 (pretty good price)
