I am so excited to share this new partnership with you. Part of why I do what I do is to help women feel confident and happy through makeup. I know how overwhelming and difficult it can be to choose beauty and skincare products that are right for you. It can be time-consuming and expensive and you still may end up with the wrong products. ( Hello makeup graveyard that clutters up your drawers)
Well, today I want to introduce you to the perfect solution. Make your life easier with your personal beauty concierge from Swan Beauty! I have been Instagram friends with fellow mom and makeup artist Lindsey Reagan Thorne for a long time and I was thrilled when she announced the launch of her new company with her co-founder Leigh Humphrey, and even more thrilled when they recently approached me to collaborate with them.
WHAT IS SWAN BEAUTY?
Swan Beauty is a personalized approach to beauty, where they will hand select bespoke makeup and skincare products just for you and deliver them straight to your doorstep. How amazing is that? I am just mad that I didn’t think about this myself. It is the perfect solution to makeup and skincare overwhelm and a great way to ensure that you are getting customized products tailored to your skin type and makeup needs, and not just some random beauty recommendation from TikTok. You will receive a beautiful box of full-sized products hand selected for you to try in the comfort of your home.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The process could not be easier and it is actually really fun. First, you take their 5-minute beauty quiz on their website, where you answer questions about your budget, skin type, current favorite brands and exactly what you are looking for, and in which area you need help. This could be just makeup, skincare, or a combination of both. I selected the Refresh my Look option to revamp my entire routine, but there are other options available.
Then, they will review your results and personalize products specific to your needs, preferences, and budget. Plus, all products they recommend come with a small sample, so you can try them before you buy! That way, you are not stuck with anything you don’t like. (Amazing !!!!)
Now, get ready for some fun mail! I was literally stalking my UPS driver, I was so excited to see what they picked for me. You have 5 days to test out your box of curated products – keep what you like and send back the rest, all with free shipping and returns. All for just $25.00 per box. ( You will be charged for the products you decide to keep). You will receive a 15% discount, if you decide to keep the entire box. Items must be unused and sealed if you decide to return them. A pre-paid mailing label is included for your convenience.
WHAT WAS IN MY BOX?

I was honestly blown away when I received my box. I seriously still can’t believe how they nailed it with just a 5-minute beauty quiz. It was like they were inside my head. They really understood my approach to beauty, which is quick, easy, and pretty unfussy. I want bang for my buck and look my best in 5 minutes or less. I was thrilled to try out the Giorgio Armani Foundation and I am already a huge fan of Glowscreen and the Vapour Beauty brand. I was so excited to try all of the other products. Incidentally, the samples came in super handy as I was headed out of town for the weekend and I just threw them all in my overnight bag and had enough product for the entire weekend. It was such a nice bonus!
I love using my fingers to do my makeup. Less is more and I prefer a natural, glowing makeup look. All of the makeup products were a huge hit!!! I loved them all. The fact that they were all travel-friendly was a huge bonus as I will be away quite a lot this fall with travel soccer. The look was super natural, polished, and pretty. I can use less for a more casual look or go all out for date night. I also loved the detailed descriptions that came with each product and how to apply it correctly, along with a customized face chart. I recommend taping it to your makeup mirror for easy reference until you get the hang of it. Here is a photo of my final look. What do you think?
I also loved both skincare products.
The Saint Jane serum is infused with CBD oil to help soothe the skin and reduce the appearance of redness. It intensely hydrates the skin and gives it a beautiful glow.
The ELASTIderm eye cream is rich and luxurious and is firming and skin strengthening. It is ideal for mature and damaged skin and helps restore a youthful glow and healthy appearance.
I absolutely loved the process and the products and highly recommend you give this service a go! I think you will love it as much as I did. I have a special discount code for you. Use KIRSTEN10 to receive $10 off your first box, making it only $15.00! Have fun and enjoy your new look!
