Pacifica Dream Big Lash Extending Mascara Review

Pacifica Dream Big Mascara

I think Pacifica makes great fragrances for the money. For years I’ve been using their perfumes and bath/body products. They have expanded the brand over the years to include cruelty-free cosmetics and facial skincare. I haven’t tried their makeup until now!

Pacifica’s most recent mascara launch is Dream Big Lash Extending Mascara.
