NEW AND NOW | YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT LE CUSHION | *sent in consideration of review*

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH YSL FUSION INK CUSHION FOUNDATION (because there not pretty much the same thing) this is a main issue with CAN vs. US launches.

Cushion foundation with customizable radiance and coverage: a natural or sophisticated finish with simple and effortless application. A unique dimmer  puff and radiant formula for a no make-up feel that offers a customizable radiance & coverage and a cooling hydration.
Customizable radiance: a luminous glow from sheer to intense.
Customizable coverage: a flawless complexion from natural to fuller coverage.

Cooling hydration: a light and blendable texture, enriched with a moisturising and antioxidant complex, for a fresh andradiant complexion. 

I was pleasantly surprised when it came to this on the go makeup I mean not like I would sit in a car and apply my makeup – but the concept is pretty, well, neat! yet the idea of this on-the-go makeup has been pretty big – and although I don’t see much of a difference bettween this and the Givenchy (link below) teint couture cushion portable fluid foundation which I must say is a huge plus in packaging and stunning quality. Something I really want you to remember with these brands turned cosmetic companies 70% of what you’re paying for is THE NAME! Anyways – what this makeup claims is pretty true for the most part but getting it to that “full coverage” is not so easy, plus you do not get a lot of product in this component either, sadly.

TOUCHE ÉCLAT LE CUSHION
SIDE NOTE ➡️ this is not a fluid product it’s a very very pigmented powder but not it’s almost like a dust-powder if that makes any sense at all in some country’s but in US and Canada it is a fluid type foundation.


The top of the sponge from my perspective it’s the top on my hand right now is very very fluffy, and the bottom is more like a traditional makeup sponge? I know most don’t use the sponge that comes with it I personally use them as stoppers from touching my clients skin(face) while doing waterline eyeliner or brows (little trick) I guess it’s for “tapping” the skin and for “sliding” the product onto the skin.

Remember to use a primer, a good primer if you don’t want to get “cakey” fast. Sadly.

DATE NIGHT | 2015 demonic

This movie was SO GOOD you do not expect the ending at all! It’s so crazy I can’t even believe it. It has suspense, jump scares and will have you on the edge of your seat ➡️ what it’s about ➡️

de·mon·ic

dēˈmänik/

adjective

of, resembling, or characteristic of demons or evil spirits.

demonic possession

synonyms: devilish, fiendish, diabolical, satanic, Mephistophelean, hellish, infernal; More

fiercely energetic or frenzied.

“in a demonic hurry”

synonyms: frenzied, wild, feverish, frenetic, frantic, furious, manic, like one possessed

“the demonic intensity of his playing”

A police officer and a psychologist investigate the deaths of five people who were killed while trying to summon ghosts.

This takes found footage to another level, where the analysis of the footage becomes part of the story. Yet it messes with the genre by directing the raw stuff with various fixed angles. And, for me, cops and horror doesn’t generally work because it gives the feeling you can return ‘home’ at any time.

Remember also just because this movie is recommended for me to watch and I enjoy it doesn’t mean that you’ll watch it and like it as me!

NEW AND NOW | NARS PRO – THE BRUSH EXPERIENCE 

SO these brushes were to lunch 5 times and NARS had been holding off and holding off and I’ve had them since February 13th with a message that NARS wanted to lanch them a week later (thank you LVMH) well that didn’t happen so I’ve had the products and 4 different WeTransfers if your a blogger or social influencer and you don’t know what WeTransfer is… whatcha been doing? (WeTransfer is when a company gets new products and they send you them but instead of paper explaining what it is and all of that it’s all done digitally if you don’t want to save the PDF. file then there is a scan code in the box there is also a lot of exclusive HQ-PR photos which you’ll see here in all kinds of sizes and lengths for all outlooks also some places like Germany do not do WeTransfer)

Amen. 

So naturally the thickness of the brushes, the hair color, the size of the brushes I was like oh hey Armani relaunch of brushes..? No no no theses are actually better then the Armani brushes they only thing is, 

1. Where the hell is the signature NARS redbotton handles 


2. Why do they look like a mini-brush set and not even fit nicely in the hands 

Sureeeee NARS is up there – there new NARS concealer which I was one of 15 to try, give my opinion and let NARS know picked over Jeffreestar who JUST got his hands on one – link below.  The brushes are good quality but I will be completely honest – the price point? NARS what the hell are you thinking..? What are you seeing that I am not. You know, I’m sorry I get that they are is hand-bound in Japan with rarified craftsmanship, and expertly shaped for advanced makeup artistry. They are made from distinctive natural fibers for plush, refined application that builds and blends with extreme ease. I can say they are good but blendSMART with the concealer and full-cover attachment heads are just, better, sorry NARS I think that you massively missed the mark of this if you only launched before Armani we might have a game changer. 


Best of the 6 NARS PRO brushes is  ‘the intensifier‘ but wait Kam, isn’t this just the NARS wet / dry brush with white bristles – essentially, yep (plus a lot cheaper)

LIFE 101 | “you’ll be looking at the city and I’ll be looking at you” 18+

It’s pathetic, fuck it. I said it. It’s to soon to feel this way but I know when I have someone, and when they have me – I was laying awake not knowing what to do or how to tell you i love you, I’m so blessed to have you in my life, I’m so blessed to grab the bed sheets and pull them over the corner, looking up at your epic green eyes, you’re the only people who ever made sweat run down the centre of my body, like, it can split me in two.  Trusting my body towards you, I never thought thought I’d meet someone who could make feel alive just by saying my name | the human memory is intoxicating and will not allow me to forgive or forget your touch, just as you can’t forget my crooked smile and lip bites (and well.. you know)  – my phone can go ring, I can get a text or someone sent me a snap and I can smile knowing always when it’s you – it always starts with a hello and good intentions but I can’t help but trip over myself trying to know the words of the ending – I love being with you, acting like we are children with the world at our finger tips, driving for hours when you know I’m not home just to see me smile.

Knowing someone feels the exact same way as you doesn’t mean that you should go saying it to soon, where is the rush? It’s like we live in a world now where we have to fit properly like our hands, knowing I wouldn’t ask you to change a part of you, and I don’t think you’d ask me to change a part of me. You know when someone comes into your life and it’s a complete accident but when you get home you feel like, like how could I have wasted so much time and  energy

The city

“Love is a feeling, a feeling of happiness. Love is powerful, too powerful to play with. This feeling is strange and hard to describe, but when you fall in love, you will know it inside.”

But maybe it’s not about wasting anything, I believe and you can ask any single person who is no longer in my life or who has meant something to me that someone will come into your life when you need something from him or her – in no way do I mean you’re going to end up using that person it’s just there is certain people who need to teach us a lesson or teach us something that we forgot but we should have always remembered and it’s completely true, sometimes it is exactly what it is. Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye and sometimes it’s even hard to accept hearing goodbye. But that’s not where I believe this whirlwind of a story is about  to take me – if anyone can tell you one thing about me it’s that I can easily get inside your head and make you do things you didn’t think you would do and it’s not that I mean to do it by any means at all, if I want something, I get it. If I want you, you’re mine. It’s like being shot and told to hold on or don’t close your eyes but sometimes it feels so good to close your eyes. Just the thought that you may have found your one-and-only can be so thrilling. But, the early stages of falling in love can be as frustrating as they are wonderful. Your new love life may consume your energy, focus, and time to the point where everything else going on in your life may feel like a rude intrusion. You can’t stop thinking about your lover. You get up and go to sleep obsessing about the relationship and what your future will look like together.

fantastic fantasy

To some of you, this reaction to love may seem over board. But, many of you know first-hand how falling in love can turn you into an obsessed, needy, and insecure person for a time. You don’t have to have emotional issues from the past to feel this way. Of course, if you do, this stage will be particularly difficult for you. Remember, the saying is not staying balanced in love, it is falling, losing your self to love. So, if you are in the early stages of falling in love right now, and you feel a little crazy, don’t worry, you kind of are. You are under the influence of your hormones that are making you feel, all at once, euphoric, endangered, and exhausted.

Keep trust in yourself as you grow. And as your mind expands and you begin to change as human being – sometimes so you don’t miss the real thing or fall face first it’s okay to take it slow and express yourself in other creative ways. 

At the end of the day, when the entire world turns it’s back on you, you’ll always have yourself. 


HIT OR MISS | TARTE | frxxxtion stick 3-in-1 exfoliating cleanser.  GIORGIO ARMANI| POWER FABRIC FOUNDATION | MARC JACOBS BEAUTY | perfection powder featherweight 

Amazing ➡️ 

TARTE has been blowing me out of the damn water for the past year. The brand has done a wonderful job in PR and instagram publicly – they have been kinda making there way into skin care markets now – they are not claiming to be a skin care brand, they are a cosmetics brand which comes with knowledge of the skin and skin concerns which whomsoever is behind the sences knows medically the steps needed to help with skin concerns and TARTE sources a lot of their products naturally for their products like the amazing frxxxtion stick 3-in-1 exfoliating cleanser – this product is amazing for travel you can use it as a mask by leaving it on the skin for a little longer the working it in and washing it off. It’s best used applied to damp skin, it is a soft gel type of texture with clay, glycerin, charcoal, diatomaceous earth and so much more natural skin loving ingredients for the one of the best cleansers I’ve ever tried. (Now using just this also I don’t think it will take off your makeup very well – so maybe keep the stick in the shower and use it in the morning – I will have to check this because I haven’t been applying that much makeup to myself as of late)formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates, gluten, vegan friendly and demonologist tested.

3 in 1 duh – cleanse. Exfoliate. Mask. 

TARTE skin


It is not a harsh exfoliant at all it will leave you skin smooth and completely glowing like you’re wearing some HD powder or something. All of the ingredients work well together in this one – was I living under a rock? I really need to open packages by date!! Because I really wish I would have tried this sooner. It is well worth you dollar and not that expensive as is! Give it a try. It will change your skin.

*update* LIFE 101 – EYEBROWS ON POINT + eyebrow tinting *sponsored* 

SO ➡️ Discovering your ideal brow shape is a face-changer that not only defines your eyes, but also frames the entire face. It’s a stunning transformation to have a perfectly shaped(or groomed)brow. If you’re unsure about where to start or are intimidated by taking matters into your own hands, this post might be perfect for you. Whether your brows are in need of some grooming, tweezing or filling in, consider my insight and tips and tricks how to masterfully shape your brows.

Taking care of your eyebrows male or female is really important this of it this way as I’ve tried to explain your eyebrows are like the frame to your face (just like teeth) and what is a picture with out a cool frame? For filling in your eyebrows with makeup for more definition is even cool to do even with the evolution of makeup and now so much more men are wearing it or at least admitting it – there is a difference to applying makeup -specifically your eyebrows. Don’t make mistakes and make sure you blend it out properly. Something that I do is take two colors close to each other (light brown – brown) and with the light brown I will fill in the front of the brow to the natural arch then take the brown and 2/3 over the light brown to the end of the eyebrow then with a eyebrow brush or a spoolie and blend through make sure you focus a little more when the light brown meets the brown to create a really cool ombré eyebrow but in a more mature way. 

➡️ remember soft feather like strokes it’s not like your jerking off yourself or your boyfriend. Because if you don’t prepare for the outcome in both cases you can end up with a mess.

As makeup evolves some companies are trying new things which a lot the inspiration comes from the runway for example – gloss brows – matte brows – highlighted brows. And these are available through smashbox and I was lucky to be one of the five to launch them last year. 

Price ➡️ $21.00

SMASHBOX MATTE BROW PENCIL

When you get your eyebrows tinted it depends on where you go and who is doing it but there is a couple places I can recommend for perfectly tinted brows and perfectly shaped brows and when I said say shaped they will follow a nice shape with the dye. It lasts about a month will slowly start to fade and that’s when you will know it’s time to get a touch up or lightly add some depth and darkness with a pencil! I

This has to be one of the best especially because I have completely blond eyebrow hairs and eyelashes and yep you can get your lashes tinted also but you have to keep your eyes closed for so long with this eye mask thing on your eyes and the dye on your lashed and if you have your eyes even open a crack your eyes will burn and go blood shot red that’s why I just use a tinted eyebrow-gel and it keeps the color soaked into my lashes for a week with no redness or burning so it’s win win. Good places to go check out are

Ask to be booked with Winnie

Once you have your eyebrows tinted they will look a lot more full but you can still apply either a tinted brow-gel or just clear, to help keep shape. Typically you can ask for them to pluck the stray hairs that have not been tinted, and they sell there razor type tools to remove hair on your face or just smaller sections – that’s what I used on the top of my brows to clean up the hair and give them a good masculine shape. 

GUYS ➡️ DO NOT go over board with plucking or shaping do not give yourself massive arches, keep your brows looking clean and nice – if you have dark brows, brush the hairs completely up (with a spoolie) and then cut the long hairs so that they don’t look a mess. 

BROWS BEFORE AND AFTER

Once you do the steps to have your brows looking on point you should always keep them looking good just by making sure on the bottom you pluck away the proper hairs and in the top you shape away hair that grows back or between your brows. The ideal shape is when the beginning of the brow is aligned with the center of the nostril and the arch falls over the back third of the eye. 

LAST ➡️ DONT OVER TWEEZE YOUR EYEBROWS SOMETIMES ITS HARD TO STOP. BUT REMEMBER YOU CAN GO FROM BROWS TO NONE IN FIVE PLUCKS

WTF WEDNESDAY : want to review product and better yet be paid for your opinion? Be carful. 

If you didn’t already know this, there are three main players in the game EstéeL’Oréal and SEPHORA and one a little smaller who sticks to “the best of the bestLVMH – Sure these are names that we all know but did you know that these three companies in various ways, own, run and sell the cosmetic and beauty industry. As we know them as popular makeup stores, and makeup brands they are massive companies at war every day trying to buy out every beauty brand they can and have diverse portfolio of brands, distributed internationally for example ➡️

Estée companies and share holders own

Cosmetics and beauty ➡️ AERIN, BECCA, Bobbi Brown, Kilian, Clinique, Too Faced, Darphin, Estée Lauder, Frederic Malle, GLAMGLOW, La Mer, Lab Series, M∙A∙C, Origins, Prescriptives, Smashbox, Michael Kors Beauty, Tom Ford and HOURGLASS.

L’Oréal (LUXE) and shareholders own

Cosmetics and beauty ➡️ Lancôme, YSL beauty, Giorgio Armani beauty, Biotherm, Coacharel, Diesel, Viktor and Rolf, Ralf Lauren, Kiehls, The body shop, Shu Uemura, Clearisonic, Guy Laroche, Paloma Picasso, Urban Decay, Yue Sai, Helena Rubinstein, L’Oréal Paris, Maybelline, NYX, Essie, Garner, VICHY, La Roche Posay and Dermablend. 

RECENT TAKEOVER – IT! Cosmetics

SEPHORA and shareholders own

Cosmetics and beauty ➡️ Sephora beauty, Kat Von D beauty, Marc Jacobs beauty, Frontcover, Too Faced, Urban Decay (licensed), Formula X, Beauty Blender, NARS and STARSKIN. 

LVMH and shareholders own

MAKE UP FORVER, Dior, Guerlain, GIVENCHY, benefit cosmetics and major fragrance haus. 

Now that we got the companies and what they own covered be careful about what you say about one of the brands because they are all connected and linked, there are people who search social media to look for negative comments about brands and take note of the name, date, time posted and the actual comment – yes when you get in good with the four main beauty companies reviews are always honest and they don’t hold that against you for a product not working out for you (in fact most companies will pay you more for reviewing and testing a product that you didn’t enjoy for ‘time wasted’) there is always a contact us button with a email which will either be info@ or pr@ and you can introduce yourself that way but makeup you have the back up if your asking for hundreds of thousands of dollars of press samples on top of being paid.

Being a social influencer is a growing self business and when you make partnerships with one company you are put on the PR list so now all the brands will reach out to you if it fits and you can reach out to them if you have media outlet, photoshoots(with celebrities typically), press review, advertising. You really want to get your name out there, and work with the brands it helps to have them already know who you are by working in the filed, on set and for major publications. Always submit your portfolio and when emailing them have a good “email signature” it’s called for example mine is ➡️

➡️ You do not have to but I am always honest if I’m being sponsored to give my opinion just so that my viewers know, although being completely me and honest with the review not everyone like the fact of partnership with different brands or being set products for thousands of dollars and still being paid for your opinion but what a lot of people don’t understand is the amount of time it takes to get to a status I have with these companies and the networking, starting out doing things for free and making my way up the ladder. Don’t expect to have the door open for you, im just giving you a couple ways to get your foot in the door and information you should know – also if you reach out to a brand make sure you know the brand and know the history of the brand and how they started, where they started and what they offer. Make sure that you blog is found on google under relevant search terms. When you post about a product or brand, use keywords in your post title and when naming a image. PR sometimes find blogs by googling for bloggers already writing about the brand they’re working on, or sometimes they’ll look for people blogging about the brand’s direct competition. Ask to be added to mailing lists for press releases / respond to a press releases that are offering a sample by explaining how you would review the product.

TIP ➡️ BE PROFESSIONAL! NETWORK! EARN TRUST. Always ask for a WeTransfer when shipped products so you can have press information about the sent products.  If you don’t know WeTransfer I would google it.
