I received 3 complimentary (free) products from the from the Maison Jacynthe line to review. All opinions are my own.
The Maison Jacynthe was founded in 2014 by Jacynthe René who is an actress and producer and the product line is mostly natural. Maison Jacynthe also joined PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program as one of their cruelty-free companies.
Maison Jacynthe Lipstick in Bordeaux Mate
This lipstick is 93 to 100% of natural origin (only the red pigment is for the moment synthetic).
First up I have to talk about the packaging. The lipstick tube is so unique and pretty. The cap of the tube is wood and silver and feel like a quality piece.
The lipstick itself is is a brick shade that’s a creamy sheer/matte. According to Maison Jacynthe “The candelilla wax allows a gentle application without drying of the lips. The oil of abyssinia allows the enhancement of the color and the long duration.”
I did find it to be very pigmented and it has amazing lasting power. It does have a natural fragrance of goji that tastes natural and earthy.
Maison Jacynthe Varnishes Taormina
Next up I got a wonderful nail polish in a very pretty light lilac shade.
Their nail polishes are:
- Free of 9 to 10 toxic products, the highest ecological guarantee in this field.
- Between 75,5 and 80% of natural origin and enriched with organic silicon with fortifying and protective virtues.
- Certified by PETA “humane on animals”.
Overall I really like the coverage and color of this polish. It looks beautiful with just one coat too.
Maison Jacynthe Eyeshadow
The final item I received was the eyeshadow in Affogato which is a nice purple/grey. The eyeshadow comes on cardboard then you can buy a wood and silver compact to house their powder products to reduce your environmental footprint. It is also 91 to 100% of natural origin.
The eyeshadow itself is so smooth and pigmented and has amazing staying power. This shade looks so pretty to make a smoky eye look.
Overall I think this is a quality natural line choice. They have a lot of products to offer including mascara, eyeliner, blush, illuminators and more. Their shade palettes are so beautiful and natural too.

Ooh they offer nail polishes now? I love that shade.
I feel like I’ve heard or seen this brand somewhere but I don’t exactly remember. I love how the quality of the eyeshadow shows through the swatch. It’s unreal. Love that they’re mostly natural and cruelty free 🙂
It’s a Canadian brand, they have nice stuff!
I have to try it! How long does the nail polishes hold ?
About a week! It’s as good as a higher end brand.
Thank you I will try it 🙂
