PYT BEAUTY REVIEW | Day-to-Night Eyeshadow Palettes, Concealer, & More!

When PYT Beauty launched back in summer 2018 I was *all* about their sole launch of the original Day-to-Night eyeshadow palette, a collection of cool-toned neutrals. I didn’t jump on purchasing it though because I felt like I couldn’t justify buying more neutrals when I already owned more than enough neutral shades that I loved. Somehow their brand fell off my radar until earlier this year when I was seeing the warm version of their Day-to-Night palette everywhere and I was intrigued to see what the brand had become after not being in the loop on their line for 2 years.

Since my makeup collection (particularly my eyeshadow collection) had dwindled down to random bits over the last year (I legit stopped wearing makeup for a LONG time) I couldn’t stop checking out PYT’s eyeshadow palettes and decided that now would be the perfect time to give them a chance. Over the course of a month I purchased a few bits here and there and wound up with this haul of two palettes, a concealer, an eyebrow pencil, mascara, and a lip gloss.

NEW MAKEUP BITS: Kosas 10-Second Liquid Eyeshadow & Silk Naturals

The majority of the time I don’t purchase makeup and skincare in sizable hauls, so you’ll often catch me sharing new individual items on my Instagram, but I’m not as great about sharing those new products on the blog since I’m not sure how to fit them into posts. I finally figured out a good title for this post so today I’m sharing a few odd bits of makeup that I’ve been loving for the last 1-3 months from brands Kosas and Silk Naturals.

Curious Comfort of Skincare-like Things: August Boxwalla Beauty Review

Let me begin my August Boxwalla review with a small apology for not having this review up sooner! I intended to get this review up when I had posted my review on the August limited edition box, but two separate health issues had me down for a large part of the month and got in the way of a few reviews I had wanted to get up this month. I regret to mention that the August box is sold out and that there aren’t any one-time boxes available, but if you have any interest in the featured products do read on because I have genuinely fallen in love with this month’s box.

Boxwalla, our favorite top-notch subscription box service (sensory experience platform, honestly) has just released a special Limited Edition Makeup + Skincare Box collaboration with Lovinah Skincare! Lovinah is a new-to-me brand and I’ve had a few days to test these goodies out, but I’m already head over heels for these two and I don’t say that casually because the eyeshadow palette in particular has totally renewed my interest in makeup again.

THREE WAYS TO SAVOR SUMMER: June Boxwalla Beauty Review

Hello, friends! How is Summer treating you, COVID and all? In the South where I live, it’s too blazing hot and humid to care about going outdoors and I don’t look forward to sweaty shiny skin, but I do look forward to Summer skincare products. With skincare I find that there’s an addictive feeling towards experiencing relief – whether you’re soothing hot dehydrated skin with a cooling mist, applying a much needed exfoliating treatment mask, or cocooning your skin in the most nourishing balm or cream at night. With non-favorable weather and climate conditions I know that I get to experience that relief of skincare and it may sound twisted, but I get the feeling that many of you know what I am talking about!
