Pacifica Cherry Matte Mattifying Primer and Neutralizing Mattifier Powder

I've mentioned before I've been playing with all different products I picked up from Pacifica Beauty! Today's post is about two makeup products by them: The Cherry Matte Mattifying Primer and Neutralizing Mattifying Powder! Read on for my thoughts.

Cherry Matte Mattifying Primer
 Them:  "Don’t have a makeup meltdown. This lightweight mattifying primer is a support system for your skin, delivering a blurred focus finish with oil control benefits. So you can keep it together all day (or at least look like you are).

Ingredients We Love

  • Bentonite Clay
  • Vitamin E
  • Wild Cherry Extract
  • Calendula Extract"

 Me: I was dying to get my hands on this since I saw a sneak peek of it on the brand's instagram. It was then sold out on their website and no Target near me had it, but thanks to a really good friend of mine, this wound up in my mailbox!!! I was so excited. A lot of silicone primers can cause my acne-prone skin to break out and since my skin gets so shiny I am always wanting anything that promises to mattify my face. The good news is, this didn't cause my skin to break out. The formula feels very lightweight and is a very thin, runny consistency. That being said, I didn't need much to do my whole face. I found it cut down on some of the shine, but it didn't mattify my face completely. I do think it does a nice job at helping my foundation stay on all day and I also like that there are good skin ingredients inside.

Neutralizing Mattifying Powder 
 Them: "Our mineral neutralizing matte soft focus power is infused with cherry and coconut for a velvety, skin loving finish. Silky smooth, talc-free formula sets your look, helps control oil and melting makeup, and gets you through another gorgeous day.

Ingredients We Love

  • Wild Cherry Extract
  • Coconut Water
  • Lotus Powder"

Me: This powder is incredible! I love that it is talc free. It does an excellent job leaving my skin looking matte and airbrushed. I have not had any issues with it caking or settling into my pores. When I wear this, I feel like I am walking around with an Instagram filter on my face, it does such a nice job at blurring and smoothing. It helps my makeup stay in place all day. I can't get over how smooth this leaves my skin looking!

So sorry my hair is soaking wet in these pictures! Sometimes with time, makeup posts sacrafice good hair days. LOL

Video Review:

Overall, while I do enjoy both products, if I had to pick just one it would be the Neutralizing Mattifying Powder. I definitely want to try more of their makeup in the future.
