Maison Jacynthe Makeup Review

I feel privileged and I am very pleased to write about the beautiful Maison Jacynthe, a local  brand (from the beautiful province of Quebec in Canada), because its whole nature concept resonates with my personal values and my makeup philosophy. This line is solely based on natural ingredients, earth conscience and well-being. Prior to receiving this cute makeup products package, I only hear great things about her skincare line and her detox best-selling books!

Who is Jacynthe René? Well, she may have started her career as an actress but it’s definitely not where I discovered her beautiful personality. Through many magazine articles, she started to share her healthy living (food, well-being, etc..), then she hosted her own TV show, wrote two books on Body Detox, followed those by launching her personal  skincare line, a magazine, a stunning website (I already tried 3 recipes and they were all so delicious)!! She also gives conferences on her secrets for personal happiness and then, this line of makeup …

I’m not saying this likely but this blush is possibly my ultimate favorite (to date that is)! From the moment I saw this wonderful color, I was enamoured and after trying it, and I had a “aww” moment and was lost for words (ask BeardMan, THAT comes not very often..); since receiving it, it’s the only blush I wear; that says a lot, knowing I have a few dozens to choose from. Call it what you want: Holy Grail, Nirvana, A state of perfect Bliss, Valhalla (if you’re Vikings)… It’s Love all across the board …

♥ Perfect pinkish/coral shade (THE perfect everyday hue),

♥ Blends effortlessly,

♥ Stays all day,

♥ Considering the quality and mostly the quantity, it’s very affordable,

♥ Made in Italy,

♥ Cruelty-free,

♥ Smells heavenly good…

Note: The collection also include the shade 01 Roméo

At first glance, I thought that this matte bronzer would be way too dark on my fair skin but  this powder blends so nicely, it creates a perfect sun-kissed effect. Pssst… this powder also smells good!

♥ Perfect for fair-to-medium skinned girls (or boys),

♥ Made in Italy,

♥ Cruelty-free,

♥ Creates the most beautiful bronzy look without looking orange (no Oompa Loompa! to report),

♥ Value wise, there is a ton of product (Incredibly affordable).

Note: There is also the Terra Cotta 02 Pomerrigio which is a luminous bronzer.

Saying that this eyeshadow is buttery is an understatement! While this shimmery champagne shade is beautiful on the centre of my mobile lid and in the inner corner of the eyes, it’s equally gorgeous as an highlighter … Impressive both ways!

♥ Versatile,

♥ Impeccable texture (so soft),

♥ With a good eye primer, it stays put for a long time (even on this hooded eye girl!),

♥ 0.10oz is double the standard quantity of any eyeshadow,

♥ Made in Italy,

♥ Cruelty-free.

Note: There is 15 different colors in the collection.

It takes a lot these days to conquer my heart (in the makeup department that is) and the 3 products I’ve tried simply made me fall in love with the brand: the natural philosophy behind the whole collection, the ingredients, the colors, the generous packaging offering larger-than-usual amounts of product, the great value for money, the end product on my skin and mostly, I’m proud that it’s a cruelty-free Canadian company that I’m sure will flourish and grow exponentially in the near future! Bravo and thank you for caring …

I can’t wait to try her mascaras, compact powders, lipsticks and concealers! If the products I’ve tried are any indication of the rest of her makeup line, it’s more than promising, it’s a sure bet!

Note: The collection also includes two different sizes of stunning cases to put your single blushes, powders or shadows! 

You are beautiful …

    1. You will LOVE this blush … and the bronzer is sweet smelling!!!
      I’m anxious to see the case in person, looks so pretty on the picture!!!
      BTW your new blog is BEAUTIFUL and quick question, was it hard to import your posts when you became self-hosted? I want to do the same …


  1. Haha literally every single Canadian blogger in my circle has been “touched” by Maison Jacynthe. 😉
    I just received my parcel and need to test the items thoroughly before reviewing but based on your rave review, I’m very excited to try the blush especially – I didn’t choose Juliette because it’s so fair looking. The other shade – Romeo – is SUPER strong looking though! 😮 PS. I did get one of the cases, it’s beautifully made!

    1. I’m so jealous that you got a case!😉(I need one too)
      Juliette is the perfect matte blush, on me it looks so natural and pretty!🎀
