Ever since I saw Pacifica's new mascara on their Instagram I've been just itching to find it and get it. My old Pacifica mascara was starting to get pretty dry so I needed a new one anyway. The timing was right! I made my way to Target on Saturday, and was so happy to find that they had some in stock! I've been using it ever since and I am so excited to tell you guys all about it!
This new mascara is called Dream Big. I got the color Black Magic, which honestly is all I saw so I'm not positive what other colors, if any, that they offer. This mascara claims to lengthen, lift, and volumize lashes in an instant with its new fancy brush. Also, this mascara claims to be actually healthy for your lashes by conditioning them. Lastly, the natural peptides in it are clinically proven to enhance the length and volume of your natural lashes with regular use. Those are a lot of big claims to fill! So how does it actually hold up to said claims?
The answer: it does all that and then some! I've never been more smitten with a mascara in my life! If you read my reviews for Pacfica's Stellar Glaze mascara, you might remember my only complaint about that mascara was that the brush was too thick for my lashes. Well, they certainly changed that with this mascara and it's the coolest mascara brush I've ever used! The brush itself is not plush like the Stellar Glaze. It's thin with tiny little grabbers, which I love. I have lots and lots of lashes so the thinner the brush the better because they actually grabs and separates my lashes. But this brush takes it a step even farther. There's a little knob on the top of the brush handle where you can twist it to lengthen or shorten the brush. I mean literally the brush gets longer and shorter right before your eyes. For your first coat, you want the longer brush because that's what lengthens your lashes. Then, after that coat dries, for your second coat, you want the shorter brush because that volumizes your lashes. If you want them bigger and longer, just keep applying until you achieve the look you want! My lashes have never looked so good!
That's not only thanks to the fancy brush, but thanks to the formula too! This formula is really rich in color so it makes my eyes really pop. And it does absolutely condition your lashes. When I take my makeup off at night my lashes feel so much softer than they did. And this is only in just a few uses I'm noticing this! I can't comment on if it actually helps long term with length and volume considering I haven't used it that long but I can say that I feel like I've had less lash fall out with this mascara than with other mascaras. This mascara doesn't flake throughout the day. It doesn't run if you're sweating. And, I haven't had any problems with it clumping. It's really amazing how phenomenal this mascara is!
I'll have more photos coming for you guys soon, but this was as good as I could get. My left eye (which is really my right eye is you're being particular) is just regular, curled with an eye lash curler (which I do pre-mascara.) And my other eye is with just one quick coat of mascara on my upper lashes. I'm talking quick because I was running late. That's not even full. So you know even on your rushed days your mascara will still look good! It's not the best photo, but I'll take more and add on to this later!
Also with this mascara, it doesn't say that it's waterproof but it is definitely takes some work to get it off at night. That might be a blessing or a curse for you depending on your preference. I wasn't prepared for that so it caught me off guard but really I need a mascara that can hold up to my long days and sometimes long nights. I have zero time for touch ups during my day so I think the fact that it's long lasting is a bonus. Just make sure you have good makeup remover!
I bought this mascara for $13.99 at Target. I haven't seen it anywhere else, even on Pacifica's website. So quickly run to Target and grab yourself one or two (or five) and be prepared to fall in love with this mascara as much as I did!
