TATCHA TRINITY – M A K E U P x T H E C I T Y

Tatcha, that brand we all seem to want but can’t always afford I think post today I am going to list off some dupes for the Tatcha Water Cream along with the other two mentioned products. The thing is, Tatcha is such an amazing brand for it’s ingredients to what it does to better help where it’s old secrets are hidden! Luxury right from the box and it keeps going, The water cream itself make my combination skin glow, another thing that I like about Tatcha is if you are on their PR list, when they send you a new product they make sure your products are replenished which is really kind and generous of the brand!

This moisturizer will not break you out, which I think even as we look for a new moisturizer, it’s something that we want. The texture of The Water Cream will make you fall in love, especially paired with the new ➡️ The Satin Skin Mist which is again such a game changer if you have oily skin – but we will get to the skin mist shortly. According to the brand, ingredients like Japanese wild rose are meant to help minimize the appearance of pores and texture, while leopard lily extract helps control excess oil and boost skin turnover. I honestly can’t say that it’s done a whole lot in terms of evening out my skin, my pores are smaller and very hydrating, soothing, giving me a thoroughly enjoyable sensorial experience.

The Satin Skin Mist is such a must for myself now, the Okinawa clay that is you can see settled in the photo above is wonderful when you shake it, and it all comes together it’s wonderful, no oil on my skin at all, you wouldn’t even know I had oily skin! The Skin Mist delivers pure anti-aging nourishment: Contains 20% Hadasei-3, the double fermentation of 3 Japanese super foods, transformed into a superfluid of essential nutrients for soft, youthful-looking skin.

➡️ The ideal pore-perfecting companion to The Water Cream: Japanese wild rose visibly minimizes the appearance of pores and refines skin texture over time.

With one week of use ➡️ 100% agreed it gives skin a fresh look ➡️ 100% agreed it helps refresh makeup throughout the day without disturbing it ➡️ 97% agreed it helps reduce oil build-up ➡️ 97% agreed it helps balance skin ➡️ 97% agreed it gives a shine-free, radiant look ➡️ 93% agreed it helps skin look smoother.

I do also want to mention that all of Tatcha is part of Clean at Sephora is formulated without a list of over 50 ingredients, including sulfates (SLS and SLES), paragons, phthalates, and more. For the full list, check out the Ingredients tab.

Next which I should have talked about first since it’s used first to wash your face if the Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser and it’s a heavy duty cleanser but it doesn’t bother the skin in any wayThe Deep Cleanse oil-free gel lathers into a creamy foam to lift away dirt, oil and impurities without over-drying. It cleanses with amino acids derived from silk gentle enough for even the most delicate skin, leaving skin soft, refreshed and comfortably hydrated.

The formula harnesses the power of the Japanese Luffa fruit, a natural beauty multi-tasker beloved by Japanese women for centuries. Ground fibers from the fruit exfoliate, helping to turn over dead skin cells, deeply purifying & decongesting pores, while the fruit extract beautifies and conditions skin.

Japanese Wild Rose works to visibly tighten pores and smooth skin texture, while Japanese Leopard Lily helps minimize excess oil and I have fallen in love with the Japanese Wild Rose it does what it says, and fast.

COSMETIC SURGURY – SKIN VITALITY MEDICAL | MXTC

Hey boys and girls – I hope all is well and you’re excited for it to be Thursday which means we have one more day till Friday and we can all be happy that it’s the weekend, I hope you guys have some fun plans for the weekend! I’m not sure if everyone knows or not from my previous LIFE 101 posts about past relationships, what happen to me, abuse and the mistakes I made leading up to it ➡️ LIFE 101 | “you’ll be looking at the city and I’ll be looking at you” 18+ my jaw ended up being damaged, well broken so the first time around while it headed they gave me a temporary retainer to help my jaw heal properly, long story short, it didn’t heal properly at all – my mandibular condyle healed incorrectly so I went about 2 1/2 weeks ago and had my jaw re-broken and my mouth wired shut to help to fix the problem, this in itself was labeled as cosmetic surgery and I went to Skin Vitality Medical for this procedure.

So next come the fun parts with Botox and Juvederm, I know what you’re thinking it’s easy to get lost and not be able to stop with all of that and if anything I will get less then they recommend because at this point I don’t even see the need for it but, on Sunday when I get my finally have my full mouth unwired I might see a need for it – and if I don’t then I won’t go. I just thought also if it would be cool also to blog about it when I’m there and give this the reason I get in front of the camera and start to film my reviews and keep it 100 and fresh.

21Brotox-for-Men
I’m going to talk to you just what Botox and Juvederm is, so Botox medical name being Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from axon endings at the neuromuscular junction and thus causes flaccid paralysis. Juvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). In recent developments Juvederm has been developed to be the filler of choice for most if not all.

I guess I just wanted to fill everyone in on what’s coming and what to expect. I totally will put up before and after photos since I’m most known for my intense jawline. I’m excited to just wake up and not have to use my ZIIP or whatever to see the instant results that I have and need, I’m in no way saying I will stop using the ZIIP because that baby works so well. If you don’t want needles or anything like that I would give ZIIP a try because for me, and for many, it was a massive game changer for my face.

21botox-patient
I do want to say, in no way am I looking for permission from anyone, and no one should this should be a well looked into choice for you, and fine a clinic that is right for you, I will actually be going to NYC for this, I was going to stay within Canada but this clinic didn’t get to VIP status with a zero count of anyone unhappy. Every single patience has walked away happier then walking in.

➡️ I will keep everyone posted as I go – and there will be a lot of photos! If you have any questions, please feel free to DM me and I will do my best to help or I can give you a number of someone who you would and should speak to if you’re considering this.

ZIIP BEAUTY – TAKE BEAUTY INTO YOUR OWN HANDS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

So I’ve got something really cool, I actually got to go to a press event for ZIIP Beauty and ask the creator, Melanie Simon, some questions and find out for myself what the heck makes this go amazing also why they decided to take away the video of the male, mine you I wasn’t a ZIIP user so I only heard echo’s of this video. I got to find out first hand why things are priced the way they are, and why ZIIP Beauty proves to put some electrical esthetician’s out of a job – a lot of celebrities are known to stop by these popular trend spots rather then going under the knife.

First of all, What is ZIIP ➡️ ZIIP is a handheld electrical skincare device. The technology behind ZIIP is ground breaking – tiny, energetic currents are pushed into the skin through positively and negatively discs located on the bottom of the ZIIP. Envision a battery where there is a positive and negative end. The energy runs between the two polarizing ends and into whatever it’s in contact with giving it life; in this case, the skin. With regular use ZIIP will leave your skin, revived, refreshed and lifted.

What is it that you feel people need ZIIP? ➡️ Well, as the aging process kicks in, or acne causing bacteria is a growing concern for you, the skin starts breaking down, due to overly washing your face or due to lack of collagen production. One of the key factors is decreased ATP production – ATP is nicknamed molecular currency because it’s used to produce collagen and elastin in the skin. ZIIP increases ATP by up to 500%

21device-pdp_2x_5ed88f8c-6230-4bfa-af71-f3542b62ed39_2340x
Another mentality ➡️ ZIIP infuses the skin with specific waveforms to create ATP, as a result, the user will produce more ‘youth proteins’ to create more beautiful and healthy skin. Excess ATP can’t be stored in the body, using ZIIP one to three times per week allows the user to create more collagen and elastin, heal tissue, stimulate lymphatic drainage, increase blood circulation and diminish bacteria in the skin.

Check out my previous post where I touched base on ZIIP and the different types of treatments that you sync right to the device from the APP ➡️ RIDE OR DIE PRODUCTS | MAKEANDTHECITY

Compulsive indulgence? ZIIP is proudly made within the USA, where modern technology and beauty intersect. ZIIP has offices in San Francisco Bay area, the epicenter of young tech companies, and LA. ZIIP is available online, Barney’s New York, Violet Grey, Neiman Marcus, Revolve.com, and other retailors. ZIIP sells for over $500.00US.

I have a nose ring, when I use ZIIP I take it out, do I have too?
No you don’t have to take it out if you do not wish to, ZIIP can be used with metal piercings/implants; however, the piercing area should be avoided as much as possible as you may feel a “zinging” sensation if the probe touches anything metal.

What happen to the video that featured a male showing how to use the ZIIP, Why was it changed to a woman?
It’s best to avoid using ZIIP on areas where there is facial hair. The hair acts as a blocker to ZIIP’s electrical currents so we thought it best to change the outline of the Quick Fix video your are speaking of. We recommend using ZIIP on a clean-shaven face, but if you do have a beard and/or mustache, you can adjust any of the electrical treatments to avoid those areas, or use the Quick Fix or VitalEyes electrical treatments, which do not include the lower face and jaw area.

The conductive gel is kind of.. pricey for this day and age and you have to use a lot of it, how long does a bottle last?
2-5 months. We also offer a Silver Treatment for only $50 vs. $150

The PR package received was very beautiful and presented very well, is there a difference between PR send outs and what a consumer will receive?
Absouloutly not.

21gel-bottles-crossing-website_2340x
Well, what do you think? Will you order a ZIIP or save up to get one? I will say the Instant Gratification treatment is my go to before getting ready before I getting ready to out, Quick Fix and, Energize are my night in treatments and every couple days, Total clearing. I am giving this device full run down and putting it to the test, I will say that I’m not to sure that I agree the conductive gel will last five months. I will add updates to this post as they are needed.

MAKEUPFOREVER | SELF-SETTING CONCEALER | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi there, Nope, You’re reading the title right, I am blogging about the same Self-Setting concealer but at the time I did it came out in PR and wasn’t out just yet so I’m going to cover it again because, and for no other reason than, it’s just that good – prepare you’re self for what I predict to be the concealer of 2019 and I have a feeling it will be out of stock a lot on the shades that you’re going to want and or need! Also if you’re new to the industry you may have heard that MUFE is cutting out PR and that is absouloutly true – they are going to keep Micro-Influencers and some larger ones but they will not be going forward with updating a media list, but they are going to be making the professional discount a lot easier to receive recognizing all avenues of beauty and industry standards. I am left with one question – is 2019 the year to kiss the powders goodbye?

We’re only two days into 2019, and it’s looking like one hell of a year for innovative complexion products. The latest brand to change up the game is Make Up For Ever, which is solving all of our makeup woes with its new Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer. Make Up For Everis releasing a concealer that sets itself and promises to stay put. That’s right, you can forget about setting your makeup with a translucent or foundation powder, because the new Ultra HD concealers will do the work for you. This is especially great if you’re looking to cut down steps in your routine and if you want to steer clear of drying powders (or toxic ingredients in our lungs) during the winter season. The new complexion products come in 22 shades (at first launch). The formula offers a creamy, medium coverage that glides on seamlessly. According to Make Up For Ever, the concealers are crease-free for up to 12 hours ➡️ this is all without a setting powder.

04maxresdefault
It also has light coated pigments diminish the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and imperfections, and immediately set. The smoothing, hydrating, creamy liquid captures and diffuses light so that skin that appears bright, flawless, and fresh all day. So pretty much for boys in makeup who don’t want to walk out of the house like Patrick Starrr and there is no hate there, it just seems to do something that I have always wanted from a concealer and you can get as close as you want and you cant tell at all its there. Under the eyes, small bit around the nose area, a dot on the chin, and I’m done and out the door.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ According to a press release sent to MAKEUPANDTHECITY
(I feel so official), Make Up For Ever will discontinue its current Ultra HD Concealer formula for the new one. Does anyone love this one? I never really got into it so I’m not overly upset.

04makeup-forever-ultra-hd-concealer-2019-review-4-650x43043
There is so much to be said about this concealer and I urge you to get and pay the $35.00CAD for 5ML because it’s such an amazing concealer and it’s a good step in the right direction for makeup in 2019! You can take a better look for yourself and buy if you’d like too right here.

SELF SETTING | DUPE ALERT | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi boys and girls I typically don’t write from the 24th till the 3rd for the obvious reasons, but since I have so much going on right now, and I don’t at the same time due to reasons in my past blog (GREEK GODDESS COLLECTON | LUNAR BEAUTY MAKEUPANDTHECITY) I have been spending more time in a hospital more then I’d like, but that’s for a ‘LIFE 101’ post and if you’re new here, ‘LIFE 101’ is where I just talk about what’s going on in my life, things that are bothering me etc. trust me, there is a lot to say but the PR and beauty industry keeps sending out and making new products. A lot are wow and some are hard pass, I find for men in makeup that don’t really want the fully beat face – to woman who just want to be in the know.

MAKE UP FOR EVER came out with ➡️ Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer which is truly exactly what we are all asking for, since they came out with the tube HD concealer. I wondered what was keeping them from creating a concealer with a applicator or doe foot, I personally think that a doe foot is a better way to keep bacteria and all that bad stuff off your face. This creamy concealer has medium, buildable coverage, a natural finish, and second-skin feel in a self-setting formula with up to 12-hour, crease-free wear which can be a lot of claims for a concealer but over the years I have found that, MUFE doesn’t print without back up and a lot of testing. You can buy it here for $35.00CAD for 0.17 oz/ 5 ml.
29MUFEUHD
Right off the PR card about the products ➡️ MAKE UP FOR EVER’s iconic Ultra HD technology for flawless, invisible coverage is now available in concealer form. Coated pigments diminish the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and imperfections, and immediately set. The smoothing, hydrating, creamy liquid captures and diffuses light so that skin that appears bright, flawless, and fresh all day.

DUPE ALERT ➡️ NYX HD CONCEALER WAND buy it here for $6.00 also click the link to check out the product and the product facts! Save your coins if you need to, there is almost always a dupe out there and I will now be featuring DUPE ALERT.
29nyx044_nyx_concealerwand_1560x1960-b85nr
A lot of people have the theory that most moden foundations and concealers are all self-setting but that is absouloutly not the case, if it doesn’t say it’s self-setting then you have to set it with a powder and it’s not for the look of powdered skin but for the longevity of the makeup and to make sure that your face doesn’t melt off a hour after you’re done, we create body heat which is not a friend to cream makeup or concealers.

Another really, really great product that is not new per say, but just got a package change is from HOURGLASS which is a little more expensive but if you have oily skin to acne prone skin this would be a game changer for you, hell it works for any skin type, it’s all in the way that you use the product and yes if you didn’t guess it I am talking about Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation.

29immaculate-liquid-powder-foundation-relaunc29h
This foundation has some amazing ingredients which I will highlight and what that ingredient does for skin ➡️ Advanced Cashmere Kaolinite Clay:
Works continuously throughout the day to control oil, while drawing out impurities to keep skin clear ➡️ Phytostem Edelweiss: Provides antioxidants, smooth’s the look of skin, nourishes the complexion, and protects from free radicals ➡️ Oxygenating Solvents: Deliver oxygen to the skin to help clear pores. All ingredients within are vegan also.

You’re able to buy it here for $70.00CAD and you would get 1 oz/ 30 ml which is about the size of a standard luxury foundation.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ drawback of this foundation is that it can only be used with people who don’t tend to have dry patches. If this foundation is applied over dry spots, they will look even worse than they already do. It will make them very noticeable. If you get dry spots and still want to try this foundation, make sure to use a heavy moisturizer before bed to prevent dry patches. The only other thing about this foundation that could be bothersome to some people is that it is very waterproof. Many people’s face washing routine is only using face wash and then rinsing, which doesn’t work with this foundation. Even when primer is worn with this foundation, I find that because it adheres so well to the skin, washing it off can be a little bit difficult.

Don’t forget about my iPhone XR giveaway and the colourpop Christmas PR collection (THIS IS NOT A DREAM | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) and thanks for making it too the end! I hope you have a safe and fun NYE.
