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!

Introducing: Maison Jacynthe Makeup

maison_jacynthe_makeup

In late August of this year, the French Canadian all natural beauty brand Maison Jacynthe launched their first makeup line – an ultra-chic collection of pressed powder blushes, bronzers, eyeshadows, and powders, mascara, eyeliner, concealers, and lipsticks. This brand new makeup line is cruelty-free, vegan, free of artificial fragrance, and is formulated with safe, natural, and non-toxic ingredients.

I was first introduced to the Maison Jacynthe brand through my good friend and fellow blogger Angie from the Whipped Green Girl blog and her great review (read here!) of a selection of items from their skincare line. Her review is incredibly helpful and a must read for getting to know the line because the labeling is in French so it’s great to have a guide in getting a feel for their products. Since the posting of Angie’s review, their skincare packaging has been updated (two big thumbs up for the update, such gorgeous bottles and design!) and the website is now available in English!
