NEW LAUNCH ➡️ FRAGRANCE ➡️ YSL La Nuit De L’Homme – Eau Électrique 

So as long as I can remember or since moving to Toronto really I’ve been wearing during the day YSL L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE and at night YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE – they are transition smells meaning they work together – as you change from your work clothes or whatever you can still smell some of the YSL L’HOMME so when you’re ready to go out for dinner, a date or fun night with your friends you spray on YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME and it works in together with older notes while giving you the sexy smell you’d want. 

These two (2) fragrances which go from day to night are amazing and I do not think I know one man who wouldn’t like the YSL HOMME line. Here is just a little information about the two of the fragrances and a little more into the notes of them. 

YSL L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE ➡️ a perfect balance between unrefined and precious, ultra-masculine and elegance, off-the-shelf and luxury. In a sparkling opening, Bergamot and a zest of Cedar wood brings luminosity to the fragrance, sustained with Chinese Ginger. The middle floral and spicy notes contrast with this first note of freshness: the sophisticated and modern masculinity of Violet leaves and Basil flowers, the bite and resonance of White Pepper. Base notes of Sandalwood, Virginia Cedar wood and Haitian Vetiver highlight this charismatic and magnetic fragrance.

YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE ➡️ a story of seduction, intensity and bold sensuality. A darkly handsome man whose irresistible charm and seduction sweep away everything in their path. A fresh oriental fragrance, made of tensions and olfactory clashes. A structure of contrasting forces. A signature rich in differences and dualities. A seduction that lies half-way between restraint and abandon. A fresh Oriental fragrance that rocks the senses: the freshness of Cardamom and the sophistication of Cedar meet the intense sensuality of Coumarin.

Be at the utmost of seduction with this new electrifying eau de toilette for men. Fresh, intense and sensual, this fragrance will be your best weapon throughout the night.

YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU ÉLECTRIQUE ➡️ an uninhibited and intoxicating fragrance. An oriental fougère that forms the bridge between freshness  and sensuality. It opens with a burst of ripe apple accord. Curving into the warm heartbeat of geranium; the senses are heightened. Slowly evolving, revealing itself, sensual – aphrodisiacvanilla rises upward, striking through like an electrical current. A play of contrasts: the first spritz invigorates the senses, while the trail leaves a statement of corporeal sensuality. An olfactive electric shock as intense as the deep blue of its juice.

It comes it sixty (60ML) or one hundred (100ML) which is pretty good for a launch most times a fragrance launches you won’t get anything but one hundred (100ML). 

LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU ÉLECTRIQUE  is described as a “wild” fragrance of a “seducer” who “makes the night his territory” and “nobody can resist his charm, at the edge of elegance and freedom.” The fragrance is conceived as a tension between the freshness of a modern fougere composition and a sensual trace of vanilla. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ three (3) noses worked on the composition:

• Juliette Karagueuzoglou, 

• Dominique Ropion  

• Anne Flipo

Citrus notes of bergamot and mandarin combined with green apple form a fresh start. The classic fougere accord made of lavender, geranium and tonka bean, is modernized by the freshness of the opening, as well as orange blossom absolute and aromatic sage in the heart. Woody notes of cedar, cashmere, vetiver and patchouli, and a dose of quality vanilla end at the base.

Which makes it a very sexy frangrance and a good add to the L’HOMME line by YSL – I really loved opening it up – I loved the packaging of the bottles for all of L’HOMME collection.

Hey guys. 

So this is a video that I just filmed and I’ll post early next week it’s in part of something with L’Oréal but I just wanted to quickly show you how I apply makeup to a man a show you how I apply makeup to myself always on the daily. Theres a massive difference betweeen makeup and not makeup, who you will see is my friend who was actually sick at the time so I begged because he looked like well, crap. 

It doesn’t look like I’d use a lot for this but it’s a fair share of makeup from, TARTE. NARS. GIVENCHY. MARC JACOBS BEAUTY. MUFE. 

No editing. No lighting. In fact I cover darkness and blemishes in LOW LIGHT for men because I can see them better. I know I’ve gotten into to fights with artists for years telling me to turn on the light. 

Well, the lights are always on. 


Left. Makeup.                          Right. The flu.

PR UNBOXING ➡️ YSL 2017 SUMMER COLLECTION 🌅

Hey guys. mother fu.. I just burnt my mouth on damn espresso so I’ve had a lot of support lately – and success – a company reached out to me for coded advertisement, yes that is the contact you can search forever and ever for but will never find they will watch you – in my case being a print blogger, as of now 🙏🏻 they watched me – watched my post, and more importantly asked about me yeah yeah yeah I knew they were doing it it’s called a background check but this is the big bucks for a blogger, social influencers and YouTuber. I have it all set up but I’m waiting to meet with someone who will show me how to properly bring them to life. More importantly, I’m in Welland right now and have been for the past couple of days, Daniel is with him father in Florida at their cottage or whatever getting it ready so I will be babe less for a week. 

It’s really annoying to me in the gay community that when I’m in a relationship it’s like that’s when others want me to the most.  

So this is maybe the best but also the worst we are both Cancers ♋️ AND if you have no idea your sign and what it actually means going back to your life here’s a small run down of a Male CancerDeeply intuitive and sentimental, Cancer can be one of the most challenging zodiac signs to get to know. They are very emotional and sensitive, and care deeply about matters of the family and their home. Cancer is sympathetic and attached to people they keep close. Those born with their Sun in Cancer are very loyal and able to empathize with other people’s pain and suffering.

ON TO THE MAKEUP UNBOXING! 


Huge thanks to L’Oréal LUXE not just L’Oréal makeup for this box of new products – guess my meeting in New York went better then I thought.

CLICK TO BUY

First what I open the box what caught my eye the most was the FULL METAL SHADOW which is just a liquid eyeshadow but the most on trend of makeup I’ve ever seen in my almost ten (10) years. New shades are introduced to Full Metal Shadow, the high-lustre, intensity pigmented, shimmering eyeshadow that become a modern classic in the YSL Beauté stable of impactful eye colors. These contrasting new shades reflect the exotic colour crush of the Summer Look, and create a myriad of striking new effects only limited by the imagination but I’m not sure if I have all the ‘NEW’ shades because one looks an awful lot like a Christmas one but it’s in New York at the moment to reference – Introducing the first metallic color liquid eye shadow from YSL. Vibrant shades that last for up to 16 hours without creasing, flaking, or fading. This pigment-packed liquid shadow has been formulated with 40% water for a cooling effect and pure colour payoff. The exclusive applicator allows you to create three signature looks from a full lid, just the line or a graphic eye look. 

So I was sent shade seventeen (17) GOLD SOURCE and eighteen (18) VIOLIT WAVE – gold source is almost like applying gold flakes perfect to the centre of the eye if you’re into the halo eye trend then you will need these full pigment liquids. 

The finish is a fine, metallic film that adheres to the lids for long lasting wear. A strong colour finish is promised, however, this doesn’t seem overly evident in the shades that I have but I have used these with YSL on set before and they were the stealer of backstage so..

Next was ➡️ NAIL POLISH which was damn beautiful and claims promised came through massively. 

JUNGLE ORANGE: the hot summer shade, a limited edition orange brings a sense of tropicality to the Solar Pop collection. Mix it with the Jungle Green, or wear as a sophisticated antidote to more traditional summer nail shades. 

JUNGLE GREEN: verdant, modern, expressive. Lime green talons are beautiful as a full set, or as a single accent nail amongst the contrasting shade of Jungle Orange.

The colour payoff is going to last and last with these – I’m not the type of dude to wear nail polish but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to review it. I wish though for the price you can go to the drug store and find the same colours for a lot cheaper sadly. 

Everything and I mean everything has a dupe out there and if you don’t care for the packaging or quality then happy hunting BUT I suggesting – if you can afford it. Buy it.

Interested in some hot double play? Well the next product I think is a must have for travel and for the makeup lover and collector because they will not be going past this collection. 

A hybrid between a lip colour and a blush, this innovative air-whipped formula allows for an instant application on both lips and cheeks. With a luminous matte finish, colour is easily buildable from a soft and natural look to a more intense sophisticated look. 

The patented “hidden pearl” applicator is customised to glide perfectly on the lips and to allow the optimal amount of formula to be dotted on the cheeks.

 A range of playful shades to complement each cheeky side of the YSL Baby Doll woman.

ORANGE INTREPIDE: adds a pop of sun-kissed luminosity to cheeks or a gentle wash of color on the lips. Apply an extra coat and build to a dense orange. 

PRO TIP ➡️ dot. dot. dot. blend with your fingers – perfect colour pay off.

A silky-matte bronzer that instantly gives skin an effortless natural glow without the shine. As if you were wearing nothing at all, Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones capture the power of the sun in a stone for the most natural sun-kissed tan. Without any additional weight or coverage, the ultralight matte powder blends seamlessly into skin, enhancing skin’s natural luminosity.

For the first time, Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones palette gets its own collector case, a limited edition piece of art for fans of the inimitable silky-matte bronzer. A shimmering snake skin, re-imagined in a vivid lime green. Exotic, eye-catching, the fire-coloured Cassandre logo leaps out, demand attention.

I think this is one area bronzing products have improved and this is a particular area I feel YSL Bronzing Stones stand out with – the creators have realised it isn’t just the shades, or actual colour and tones that need to be worked on, but the over all effect these products create, beyond just how dark they leave you. It is amazing how much better tanned, or bronzed skin will look, when it has a bit of a glow and sparkle to it, even if it is just a very light tan – this is especially the case with the glowing part. And YSL have certainly not skimped on the sparkle, or the glow.

SO – however pale, or light, you are, YSL is bringing everyone in on the latest seasons trends. 

Get this collection online. In NORDSTROM or Sephora (I would go anywhere but Sephora)

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.
