LIKE SAND THROUGH THE HOURGLASS | M X T C

I’m sorry, I had to title today’s post that, I’m sure you get we will be breaking down some new, some iconic and some not that the brand aimed way to high for and it just, flopped, hard. Anyways, wonderful Saturday to you all! Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s day which used to mean a lot of alcoholic beverages for a lot of different people, maybe I will go out and have a few but my man is working and is a lead chef in a restaurant so, it’s a bigger night for anywhere that has booze on the menu. I actually stopped drinking, and I wish I had a huge from the bottom up story or waking up in strange places or something but I don’t really, alcohol just isn’t good for your body, skin or mind.  Plus it’s very easy too cross a line when you drink that you can’t come back from. So I guess all I can say is, be safe, be with friends, and be smart.

Alright, so now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about Hourglass luxury beauty, and yes all items talked about will be added into the giveaway if you have been following any previous post TGIF! WhiteWithStyle | M X T C check that out and pop back to continue, I can wait! I don’t mind! I absouloutly love Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation, I think it’s one of the all time best products out there, pop culture would also agree with me, and you know what they say, don’t mess with a classic – They came out with a full liquid version of Vanish, with some big and I mean big claims ➡️ no primer needed ➡️ half a pump to do the entire face ➡️ second skin natural finish! Hourglass said that it they feel its the future of foundation.

Weightless, instant full coverage is delivered through the formula’s innovative coated pigments—allowing for seamless application and a long-wearing, second-skin adherence. A natural finish is delivered through light-refracting microspheres, blurring and smoothing any imperfections for virtually perfect skin. With all of that being said there is a lot of mixed reviews so put every claim to the test over two weeks to find out exactly what was up, I found that it does oxidize quickly and become shade(s) darker quickly, it sticks to dry areas and really shows off any little flake of dryness, there is no natural finish this is drying and matte, make sure if you choose the route of no primer, use a rich moisturizer and bring a touch up compact if you’re going anywhere because I found that it lifted on and around the nose, chin and sides of the eye, strangely.

I would say to go into your Sephora and ask them to make you a good sized sample because the sample jars that Sephora has are supposed to fill for a two week use and give it a try because it is also more exspensive the iconic stick formula.

$56.00US, 32 shades  on Hourglass.com

Ambient® Lighting Edit ➡️ Volume 4, I love these little palettes so much, and I know a lot of people don’t understand Ambient® Lighting from Hourglass but its kind of like different color settings on a ring light, cool, warm, etcetera but brought to life, when you understand how to use these powders they can change your makeup game forever and the palettes are a good way to start to collect them – I could do without the hot pick metallic shell though I wish they would have kept it more gender neutral as they do but pink is a guys color also, I guess, just not mine.

ambient-lighting-edit-volume4
➡️Formulated with photo luminescent technology to capture, diffuse and soften surrounding light for skin that appears softer, younger and lit from within.

Sold individually for $48.00US on Hourglass.com

Sold in three pan palette for $64.00US on Hourglass.com

Limited edition six pan palette (Holiday 2018) sold for $80.00US on Hourglass.com (SOLD OUT)

I will edit this post if the items does come back into stock but I do have one in the giveaway and if you wish to win it you’re going to keep reading the spring themed product reviews or events.

Make sure everyone is safe this St. Patrick’s day,

My own teeth after four month use of WhiteWithStyle (never had braces or alignment)

Yellow teeth are a very common cosmetic concern for people throughout the United States and Canada. In fact, discolored teeth are one of the largest complaints that people have about their smiles. Thankfully, this concern is one of the most treatable conditions that people suffer from called ➡️ WhiteWithStyle.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ If you want to look wealthier, the first thing you need to do is whiten your teeth. People assume that those with pearly white teeth make more money than those with yellow teeth. Furthermore, people with white teeth are more employable than those with dull, yellowish teeth. Sadly this is completely true also, teeth and eyebrows are the first thing people notice about you so its mega important to take care of yourself, for yourself, not anyone else!

These teeth whiten kits are so amazing, I love them so much, they also offer a sensitive version that was peroxide-free which I do also have and use in between my whitening times, which if you’re going to over use do make sure that you take my advice and get 2 kits 1 kit peroxide-free. If you use code ➡️ MXTC at check out you will save almost 90% the Sparkle White Professional Teeth Whiten Kit so it will be around $28.00 – you can check out the other kits here – mint is the way to go! I do just want to touch base that the price without my code is $269.00 – who doesn’t want to save that money.

😁 from @katiereese94 – I’ve been really excited to share this post! I’ve actually been looking at whitening systems but I had no clue which one to try out. @whitewithstyle and @simplyspoiledbeauty has sent me a system to try and share with you! I’ve used it once and I could tell a slight difference after just that one use. It says to use every 3-4 days for best results. So I’ll update along the way! They’ve also given me a coupon code to share!

LA PRAIRIE | NEW PRODUCTS | BRAND TRIP(S) and more | M X T C

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening so much is happening right now if my daily life and in my career. For one in June I will be going to Art Basel in Swaziland as a guest for La Prairie, which I’m sure we all know who La Prairie is by now! Especially if you’re involved in the beauty community! to even be asked is unbelievably a step in the right direction. I did have to sign a NDA just as you would with any brand trip, I have been asked before but I take my 9-5 job very seriously – and the truth of the matter is if I had a chance to go to Cuba or Art Basel, I would choose Switzerland. The truth is also that it plays well into my job at Universal.

With the talk of La Prairie I will talk about some new products that will be launching in the next couple of months and yeah I would say that I am the first to even be speaking about it so any photos will have my new logo added so that people know where it came from.

There are three products to come from La Prairie too come and they are a fusion of makeup that meets skin care which is all that La Prairie comes out with ➡️ Skin Caviar powder and Skin Caviar Loose Powder enhance the Skin Caviar complexion offer, Skin Caviar creations are perfectly matched to offer bespoke blending for complexion perfection.

Skin Caviar is the perfect conclusion to the ultimate beauty ritual – the first loose powder infused with caviar extract. A sublime fusion of caviar science and color artistry. The claim of this loose powder is that it will set the makeup, keep you looking youthful all day, natural and completely shine free.

The Skin Caviar pressed powder goes beyond mere makeup, and the brush line finally built to work with the Caviar makeup line. Science or Art? I guess it’s hard to tell with La Prairie. They do not have samples of these products to send out at this time but when they do I will touch base – this is all information from their press release.

SMASHBOX BRUSHES AND BRUSH SETS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi makeupandthecity, what’s good?

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!
SMASH THAT SUBSCRIBE BUTTON AND SHOW SOME LOVE!!

Before we go on to what I’d like to talk about I just wanna touch base with you guys and talk about STREAMLINE which is my advertising proposals – lately I have been getting offers for advertising for beer and online Poker – and when thinking why would they even offer me that, I was told its because I identify as lifestyle also which is true so I do get but at the same time I’m going to ask you, the viewers if it’s silly to talk about makeup and stuff and then see ads for PARTY POKER. I mean I could just keep those types of ads for posts that maybe they will come in handy.

Did_You_Know_1

If you didn’t know SMASHBOX has been working for quite some time on a brush revamp to launch exclusively at Macys, there will be twenty-nine (29) new red brushes and a new ‘gel cushion’ applicator called “The Photo Filter” of course SMASHBOX has called this line of brushes Camera Ready Brush collection – from what little bit I have seen, I do see a little influence from other brushes like Charlotte Tilbury and the way her handles are grooved for more comfort and so that when placed down, they don’t roll away.

gel
The Photo Filter gel cushion, at first really reminded me of the silisponge but the silisponge is hard and to be honest, just a big waste of your money. SMASHBOX did something differently with the Photo Filter gel cushion which is in the name really, gel cushion – so I’m thinking that its going to be a little softer and a little more squishy but in a good way – also if you see promo photos you’ll see the details on the gel mimics the same outline on a finger print, we also already know that the texture will not absorbe any product and it will be very easy too clean. It’s flexible diamond shape reaches every angle of face and it will use a lot less of your product then traditional makeup sponges or applicators.

Next with the revamp and new launch of twenty-nine (29) brushes I think that within a lot of the newer and even some older brush sets SMASHBOX has been including these brushes as tests to see what the consumers has to say about them like the #SHAPEMATTERS brush set, I think we will see a more professional quality brush(s) comparable to the look and application of that brush set, I also as I mention above that we will see similar factors from other brushes (from other lines) in the new Camera Ready Brush collection.

Makeup lately has focused a lot on sculpting features and playing with lighting to shape the face, although this is nothing new to SMASHBOX I think they saw it as a perfect time to revamp and launch a new brush collection which is, well, true! SMASHBOX used to have a full brush section and now they don’t really have many brushes like they used to have – I’m happy to hear that they are doing twenty-nine (29) revamped and new brushes and I hope that they blow us away with quality!

Remember what I said though about seeing similar brushes in this collection that look like they have been picked out of previous brush collections because SMASHBOX does put out a lot of brush collections.

Pictured above is SMASHBOX Christmas brush collection – notice how the metal attached to the handle and shaping the hairs is goes out a little bigger and then to thinner I think we will see that same design from the entire new collection launching soon at Macys – and why not? it looks super cool not just a basic metal component.

I think there will also be a mix of cruelty-free hairs of course, it will be good for SMASHBOX to introduce their new brush line at this time also with all the controversy with NARS and revoking their cruelty-free status to sell in China – just a thought.  At the end of the day – makeup brushes are just makeup brushes not a lot can be done to create or invent a brand new design but I have hopes for SMASHBOX to know this out of the park because lately their new ‘revolutionary’ products have been a little lacking for me.
