Review: Pacifica Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara

Pacifica Stellar Gaze Mascara

by Blythe A.

Not so long ago, in my younger days, I didn’t give much thought to my mascara. I would pick one up at the drugstore and use it until it was empty or dried out. Then new innovations in mascara started to catch my eye, and I began a search for a product that would make my already long lashes look longer and fuller, but mostly fuller. Thanks to some experimentation, subscription boxes, free samples, research, and blogging I have found mascaras I like and love, along with a few that are either fails or simply “meh.”

In the last year or two, I have been on the search for a more natural based mascara, and while they do exist, I haven’t found one worthy of the title, holy grail. Until, I tried Pacifica Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara, $14.00, in Supernova (black).

If you’re not familiar with Pacifica, they are a natural beauty product company who are known for their innovative and sustainable products. In addition to their beauty and skincare products, they make perfume, nail polish, and candles. All of their products are vegan and 100% cruelty-free.

 I love everything about the Stellar Gaze mascara, including the packaging. Pacifica always does an amazing job with their package designs. I found the mascara to be long wearing and nourishing to my lashes. Unlike many mascaras, Stellar Gaze didn’t weigh my lashes down. Even after it dried, I didn’t even feel it on my lashes. The formula isn’t too wet or too dry, so you can easily build up the intensity.

The brush makes application  a breeze, and isn’t so thick that you can’t reach every lash. I had no problem coating all my lashes, from inner to outer corner. Though the formula does dry fairly fast, I found I could still apply one coat to each eye, before coming back for a second coat, without any problem. Stellar Gaze is very long wearing and not irritating. It didn’t flake off during the day, even in the sweltering 90 degree heat, nor did it irritate my sensitive eyes when I washed it off. This was another feature I really enjoyed. No matter which remover I used, micellar water, eye makeup remover pads, or a cleaner, the mascara dissolved easily, without leaving any excess residue.

Stellar Gaze in Supernova is the perfect black. I really liked how the color accentuated my longer, fuller lashes. The mascara also comes Stardust, which is a brown color. From the pictures on the Pacifica site, it seems to be a rich, dark brown. I tend to only use black mascara, but I would be curious to try Stardust, as well.

Overall:  Pacifica Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara is one of the best mascaras, natural or otherwise, I have ever used. If I had to list my top 5 mascaras, it would absolutely make the list. At $14.00, it is well worth a trip to Target or to Pacifica’s website.
