Close-Up + Swatches: Pacifica Beach Goth Lipstick (Clinique Dark Honey DUPE!)


I recently purchased Pacifica's newest lipstick, despite the fact that it doesn't really look like a shade I would like or even wear. Beach Goth seems like a dark, vampy purple color. So, does it wear as dark as it looks?



As you can see from the swatch on my hand, the answer is NO! The shade is a lovely orchid color - a favorite of mine.


In fact, I am willing to claim that this is a dupe for Clinique's Black Honey lipstick! I actually used to have a video on Youtube featuring a Clinique set, but it has since been deleted since I now only feature cruelty-free products.


The reason it reminds me of Black Honey is because the lipstick color right out if the tube is very similar in color - a dark, intimidating purple - however, it swatches to a more wearable orchid shade. As with all Pacifica lipsticks I've tried, the formula is smooth, soft, & hydrating. I'm a huge fan of the slim tubes & the high-pigmentation. Overall, I'm really in love with this shade & it is going to be a stellar color for Springtime!
