Maison Jacynthe | Lipstick

As you may remember, at the beginning of 2016 I wrote about an amazing Quebec-based beauty company, "Le Soins de Jacynthe."  They have now rebranded to simply, "Maison Jacynthe." The reason behind the name change and rebranding is because, Jacthyne, feels that she "opens the doors of her house" and shares its secrets, recipes, and rituals. As well as the rebrand, they also introduced a makeup line!

As was explained in my first post about the brand, Maison Jacynthe pride themselves on their products being natural, chemical and GMO-free and are also cruelty-free - they are part of PETA's "beauty without bunnies" program. I think the natural feel of the brand really shines through on the design of their makeup packaging with the use of the cherrywood.

If you know me very well, you will know that I am a huge fan of bold lipsticks, which is why I picked the colour, 05.Fishing. The stand-out ingredients in the lipstick are; Candelilla wax (provides a smooth application), apricot wax, castor seed oil, and coffee seed extract. The website says that the lipstick has the natural scent of goji but I don't actually smell anything when applying it.

The first thing I noticed about this lipstick was the pigmentation and how smooth it glided on. You really don't need to apply much to get that pop of colour, the pigmentation is amazing. I don't wear matte lipstick very often as I find that my lips dry out. Although this lipstick is matte, my lips stayed hydrated which I put down to the natural ingredients. The colour also lasted really long throughout the day, even after eating and drinking. When it started to wear off, it did so evenly, fading to a nice lighter colour. I really like this product a lot and recommend it, if you are looking to venture into using natural brands.

Have you tried any Maison Jacynthe products?
