When I noticed that one of newest brands that Sephora is carrying at the moment was Pacifica I got all kinds of hyper. With high standards about what goes in their products plus an inexpensive price tag, Pacifica is a user friendly product on all accounts.
Facing a declining economy plus a need for more vegan/organic brands, Pacifica comes out as a shining beacon. With plenty of bath and body options in large sizes with small price tags the brand manages to appeal to our need for more all while paying alot less.
I’ll be featuring several items from the Pacifica Collection over the course of the next few days as I’m so deeply impressed with the quality and the price. I’m positive after you hearing my raves you’ll want to indulge in a few items yourself!
Jump ahead to hear me babbling in joy over Pacifica Solid Perfume!
Boxed up in brightly packaged slide boxes, Pacific Solid Perfumes captivate and make a girl want to reach out and grab one just to look at the sweet little boxes the perfumes are housed in. Although the box is gorgeous the real gold lays with in so slide it open to reveal a sweet little tin no bigger than a size of a MAC eyeshadow that houses a gorgeous little solid perfume that paraben-free ad made from organic coconut wax, organic soy wax, and natural and essential oils.
These sweet vegan friendly perfume solids pack an interesting, complex, and unique scent that’s traveler friendly and cute as a button! If you’re wanting to multitask you can use these solids not only as a perfume but also to rub on rough elbows, knees, and cracked heels for a bit of extra moisture but remember for the most part they are solid perfumes.
The scents all have a nice throw and a good linger but my body chemistry sucks them up so I do have to reapply throughout the day to keep the scent fresh. Considering the tins are so tiny I can tuck one in my makeup bag or desk draw for a quickie pick me up through the day. A bit on all my pulse points freshens up the scent and creates a subtle yet lovely little scent of goodness. I tried four of the blends but there are a slew of others. From fruity to natural, woodsy or herbal, Pacifica has that perfect little scent for everyone. The scents I tried were Lotus Garden, Tunisian Jasmine, Bali Lime Papaya, and Egyptian Bergmont Rose.
Pacifica Solid Perfume in Lotus Garden was recommended to me and I must say it’s the very best of all four. I was thinking how floral it would be but it’s actually very fresh with hints of fruit and a tiny underlay of floral. Incredible scent. The dominant note that takes over the blend for me is a crisp, clean citrus. The citrus keeps the blend fruity but it’s quickly followed up with green notes and a strong underlay of lotus which gives it a certain twang. Who would think that citrus and lotus would go so well together? The scent manages to have a fun element but also a sexy one. It’s truly something you have to experience to understand, an amazing fruity floral blend that’s fresh, clean, and sweet!
If it’s fruit you crave with a sweet kick Pacifica Solid Perfume in Bali Lime Papaya is sure to please! A dominant note of papaya will hit you right in the face on first sniff but the twang of lime morphs the blend and creates a sweet, tart blend that’s complex and fun, perfect Summer scent!
Pacifica Solid Perfume in Tunisian Jasmine is ridiculously good. I don’t particularly like the scent of jasmine and this is straight up, in your face jasmine but oh it’s something special. It contains Mediterranean almond which could account for what makes this blend so incredible. It’s a really fresh, floral but very hardcore and heavy. It’s unique, very sexy, and utterly different. Loves it!
And finally, my last scent, I tried Pacifica Solid Perfume in Egyptian Bergamot Rose. Yet another complex and interesting blend full of warm, spicy notes and hints of floral this blend is sexy and flirty. I get a strong dominant note of a spicy musk for the most part but the rose and bergamont keep the scent fresher and slightly floral. I’d favor this for more of an evening scent!
At a sweet price tag of merely $9 USD each Pacifica Solid Perfumes won’t break your beauty budget. Each tiny tin is ideal for travel can be easily toted around for quickie touch ups on the fly. Pretty, bright, festive packaging keeps a Muse coming back for second and third helpings of these sweet little perfumes.
All in all I think Pacifica Solid Perfumes are truly a unique little beauty find and sure to please both vegan friendly and beauty budget gals alike!
The Muse loves ‘em! Cute, fun, and unique these are the perfect price for spoiling yourself.

Last week I featured a friendly, feminine beauty budget find from Lollia to moisturize your skin! This week I’ll feature a sweet little duo to cleanse hair and condition your hair that’s sure to please you packaging wise, cute wise, and price wise!
Lollia holds my heart when it comes to ultra cute, girlishly chic bits and bobs for body and hair care. Today I thought I’d bring you a review of Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo and Lollia Bee Balm Conditioner in the scent Mint Julep.
These sweet petite treats are available from Lollia for $8 USD each and come housed in small little toothpaste style tubes that are practical yet have that hint of designer charm for displaying in your wash room or on top of your vanity.
Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo is formulated with purifying clover blossom to protect tresses while wheat proteins build strength. This shampoo is light enough for daily use on all hair types without weighting it down! It’s lightly perfumed with Mint Julep which feels cooling and soothing on the scalp and scents your hair with a delicious blend of vanilla bean, shredded coconut, star anise, and crushed mint.
Lollia Clover Blossom Conditioner adds shine and flirt to hair. Keep hair calm and moisturized with milk and wheat and the cool scent of Mint Julep!
Both the shampoo and conditioner are very light formula so if your hair is color treated, dry, oily, or silicon free, like my own, you’ll be able to safely use this without weighting hair down or stripping color.
The scent is delicious and it lingers quite nicely in your hair so you’ll be smelling minty fresh all day long. Mint for your hair possibly sounds weird but the other notes of vanilla and coconut morph the mint into a gorgeous blend that’s sure to please.
Since these cute little treats are such a budget friendly price they are perfect for gift giving, stashing in your guest room, or most important, traveling with!

Spicy hot is the order of business for the new Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Collection. Rich hues of bronzer, shimmering shades of shadow, and slippery sexy lips should break you from Spring to Summer in a flash!
Jump ahead for the full details!
I’m always delighted by any and every Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Makeup Collection that pops up. I’ve always been terribly pleased with all the releases and the quality of the Limited Edition items so but of course the new Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Collection completely appeals to this Muse. Although I’m not much of a bronze fan I can’t help but feel a sense of excitement upon viewing all these new goodies. The collection is inspired by the rich hues and scents of Brazil, think tropical heat, warm sandy beaches, and plenty of shimmering shades. Releasing with the collection are some beautiful point makeup items such as a bronzer, eye palettes, glosses, and even a fragrance!
The Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Silky Bronzer Powder is available in two shades for Light to Medium skin tones and Medium to Dark. The bronzer is housed in a zebra printed compact with a large brush for buffing color on. The compact is $24 USD which is a reasonable price and quite in keeping with the normal price tag on Victoria’s Secret LE items.
Also releasing are two Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Radiant Shimmer Eye Palettes for $24 USD each. The two shade selections available are entitled Amazon RainForest and Rio De Janerio. I’m partial to the lighter shimmering golds, beiges, and browns in the rain forest palette. The Rio De Janerio palette contains more popping shades of blue, purple, and brown. Each palette has four strips of shimmering eye shadow that can be worn wet or dry for a more dramatic, tropical look!
Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Lip Gloss is available in three shade selections for $15 USD. In an interesting twist this new gloss comes in a squeeze tube where as Victoria’s Secret normally prefers housing it’s LE glosses in a square tube with a brush or sponge applicator so this is an interesting packaging choice for them. The shades all look like semi-sheer shades that range from peach to berry, the formula also has an SPF of 15.
And finally to complete your steamy, tropical look you can spray yourself with the new Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Now Eau de Parfum. This new version of Very Sexy is a colorful blend of exotic fruits like papaya and creamy coconut with a blend or orchid to spice things up!
I’m really loving this collection and I’m adding it to my Summer wish list! I’ll be picking it up as soon as I see it in store so I can review for you. At least one of the eye palettes, possibly a bronzer, and all the glosses are getting added on this Muse’s list!
