Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint Trio Pics & Review

I was able to place a small order during Pacifica's Love This Sale sale, woohoo for 20% off! 

I picked up a refill of my fave Indian Coconut Nectar Body Wash, a Tahitian Gardenia spray perfume and a Bali Lime Papaya Solid perfume to try.  The one item I knew I had to order was the Color Quench Lip Tint Trio and I am so happy I did! I also have to rave about Pacifica's shipping.  If you spend $50 you get free shipping and it is UPS and arrives insanely fast from the West Coast.  I placed my order on Nov 4 and it arrived in NY on Nov 7.

The Color Quench lippies are a bit chunkier than what you usually think of as a lip tint or lip balm which is nice.  They will last a while.  Some of them are  more sheer and others are more pearly.  The scents are great, not too much and more natural so they aren't too overwhelming.  They are like scented lip balms for grown ups made with coconut oil so they are super moisturizing, not like those chapsticky ones of our childhood.

Some reviews complain that they don't have enough color or that they are gritty.  They are natural and they are just supposed to be a tint so that explains the lack of bold lasting color to me.  The gritty feeling is only felt when wearing the sparkly ones and it isn't that bad.  I think they are quite pretty but I also have full pouty lips so they work well for me.  At $18 for a set of 3 full size lippies, I don't think it is bad at all.  The packaging is beautiful, I am saving the box though I am not sure what for, maybe an art project someday.   I think these would make a great treat for yourself or stocking stuffer.  They do have these individually at Sephora stores so if you live near a Sephora, stop by and swatch them to see how you like them.  Since they are not bold heavy colors, I think they are great for wearing with a more dramatic eye look.
