Pacifica Devocean Natural Lipstick in Tenderness and Mystik - Review & Swatches
If going vegan with your makeup is one of your New Year's resolutions or you're simply in the market for a new affordable lippie, Pacifica's popular Devocean Natural Lipsticks are sure to please!

Pacifica is perhaps best known for their extensive range of island-inspired fragrances and I personally adore their handy pocket-sized rollerballs (check out my review of those here). Amongst the perfumes, candles, and body care, you'll also find a growing line of natural mineral-based cosmetics - in particular, they do a beautiful palette with eyeshadows, blusher and highlighter shades (see my review and swatches here), and their 7-free nail polishes are a must-try (reviewed here).

Today though, I'm focusing on Pacifica's Devocean Natural Lipsticks, and like everything else from the brand, they're 100% cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.

Packaged in slim white tubes with Pacifica's classic gold branding design on them, these twist-up lipsticks are always easy to find in my makeup bag. Their formula is free from a long list of 'nasties' such as mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, propylene glycol and SLS to name but a few, and being vegan, they are of course free from all animal ingredients, so if you've been struggling to find a high-quality lipstick that doesn't contain the likes of carmine, beeswax or lanolin, these lipsticks may just be your new best friend!

On the lips they feel creamy and hydrating thanks to nourishing ingredients such as Shea Butter,  Jojoba Oil and Candelilla Wax and they glide on smoothly without any issues. They have a natural plant wax type of scent that's mingled in with a hint of vanilla, but it's not offensive to my nose and I personally can't taste anything when it's on. Depending on the shape of your lips, you'll either love or hate the bullet, but I really like it and find them easy to apply.

The Pacifica Devocean Natural Lipsticks are some of the best 'natural' lipsticks that I've tried and I'm impressed by their longevity, pigmentation and finish, as well as their affordability for a product of this quality. There are currently five shades available which is the only real drawback, and I hope that Pacifica adds some more colours in the near future. In the meantime, my two favourites, Tenderness and Natural Mystik are shown below.

Tenderness is a classic everyday nude-pink that leans a little lighter on my lips than I was expecting from the colour in the bullet, but I love it! It's one of those easy to wear shades that I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of as it goes with everything.

Natural Mystik, on the other hand, is my current go-to shade for weekends and evenings as it's that perfect medium red-brown shade, without being too 90s brown if you get what I mean?!  I think this colour would be very flattering for a range of skin tones and it's just gorgeous for Winter.
