The Tree of Life

I'm sorry it's been so long! I've been working on a ton of dreads, as well as getting ideas for some new colors, which I've made over the passed couple weeks. Here are some swatches, and I look I've done!

I also purchased some Pixie Epoxy, and I have to say I love it!! The first time I wore it, I had MAJOR creasing issues (it's also been 100+ degrees out lately), but after that I figured it out and it's worked very well!

Shrooms on the lid, Conspiracy in the crease. I used Travel to Jupiter as a highlighter.

They really don't look like anything dry... But look at them foiled!

And a few more new colors! Yeah, I've been a busy girl!

I hope you like them, and there will be three more parts to the Tree of Life collection coming soon!

Here's a picture of my snake to leave you with. :)

The Setup

So, I actually worked my day job today! It was alright (that job usually stresses me out like crazy!) but I'm definitely ready for a nap, and then I have orders to fill! I figured I'd post some pictures of my workspace today, though!

I was originally using a glass table, but I figured out after I had a million different things that it was not at all large enough to hold all my stuff. I'm still wanting another table, as even this one is a little small!

This table was our old kitchen table, then converted into a craft table. I covered it in contractors plastic so that it would be much easier to clean, and too keep it away from the wood (when I think wood, I do not think clean!)

Everything is either in the little boxes, or in the cabinet to the side of the table (all of the powders I have very large quantities of, besides my base) to keep it all away from whatever dust may be lurking! I clean everything with alcohol before use, and of course I go through gloves like crazy!

"Made", "Jars", "Bags"

"Whites" and Oxides, "Colors", and "Samples" (plus my CS colors)

The whole setup

And we're off!

The new website is up and running! There are two deals going on right now.

The first is the discount code "open" for 30% of any order. You can enter this during checkout, and you do not need to open an account to do so.

The second is free shipping on any order over $35, to anywhere in the world!

Now, these two can be used together, as the $35 limit is before any coupon codes are applied. This means that you can get $35 worth of products for $24.50 shipped!

We are also going to start an ongoing offer, where everyone will get a unique code for 10% off their next order for sending in high quality photos of themselves wearing our makeup, to use on the site. Hopefully that way we can show our colors on a range of different skin tones, and different types of people.

Now, the question that is always on my mind: Is there anything else you'd like to see? I'm thinking of posting pictures of my workspace soon.

It's getting Close!

The dedicated website for Spellbound by Jynx will officially open tomorrow!

Now, when I set this date for myself, I figured I could just transfer what I had, and add to that. I tried for a good ten hours to simply transfer the database, with no luck (and no real help from my hosting company). So I decided to start from scratch!

It's taken a lot of hard work, but I'm pretty happy with the way things are going now. I did decide to scrap the "Get-a-Look" section, at least for now. Anything that is used in an image will be found below, in the related items. I figured it would be better to have more room from new products than to have repetition.

I will be posting all the discount codes early tomorrow!

Here are a few of the new colors:


Fools Gold



Pitch Black




So, what do you think? Any changes you'd make, or anything else you'd like to see?
