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.

JUST LAUNCHED: BOXWALLA X LOVINAH Limited Edition Makeup + Skincare 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.

EVERYDAY MINERALS Haul – Brushes, Blushes & More

It’s been a MINUTE (years, maybe?) since I last shared some makeup around these parts! I recently started using mineral foundation again (I always come back to my good old powders) which happened to make me feel nostalgic for Everyday Minerals – one of the first indie beauty brands I tried when I discovered the online indie/clean beauty space. I thought I’d see what’s going on in their store and I found a few new items to try as well as some classic blushes that I once owned.

Half of the items in this haul were actually free gifts, believe it or not. Right now they have a great gift offer – spend $20 and choose 4 free gifts, or spend $40 and choose 7 free gifts. They let you choose your free gifts from each category of product which is awesome.

I also just joined their referral program and I’m happy to share a great discount with you all – use my link to save 20% on all products in their store!

New Makeup Launches from Maison Jacynthe

Maison Jacynthe is back this Fall with new makeup launches! I had the pleasure of trying out their original launch last August with much thanks to my gal Angie at Whipped Green Girl who introduced us, so I’m grateful and very excited to have this opportunity to share what’s new and good at Maison Jacynthe.

For the uninitiated, Maison Jacynthe is an eco-chic French Canadian brand that offers skincare and makeup collections that are cruelty-free, vegan, free of artificial fragrance, and is formulated with safe, natural, and non-toxic ingredients. The Maison Jacynthe team kindly offered me the opportunity to choose 3 items from the new launch (which includes liquid foundations, powder highlighters, and nail polish) so I chose one from each category to try out.
