I am very happy to call attention to this brand within Canada and try my best to show you the beauty of the packaging while talking about the quality some of the brand is amazing and some of it I think is just to much so that’s why I’m going to take a look of the best and worst in the brand.

Africa’s Vanishing Species Collection is pure beauty and the eyeshadows are made of unbelievable formula this collection of rich, pearlescent eye shadows is inspired by six beautiful creatures — cheetah, elephant, giraffe, lion, pangolin and rhinoceros — that are among Africa’s most endangered. All of these wild animals face common threats from shrinking habitats, conflict with local communities, and the illegal wildlife trade.

One of my most favourite product Le Camouflage Stylo puts YSL Touche Éclat to shame even the new full coverage on and again I love the packaging, the silver and black camo is very beautiful – there is a difference in price though, Le Camouflage Stylo sells for $75.00 in Canada! With a single stroke of the brush, the ultra moisturizing formula’s light- reflecting pigments instantly blur the appearance imperfections while a sugar-based oligopolymer helps plump the appearance fine lines. Anti-Fatigue Complex works to lighten the appearance dark circles and reduce the look of puffiness ➡️ It comes in seven shades, sadly.

The Polar Ice Palette is dazzling and features nine cool-toned shimmering eye shades with next-generation pearl pigments.

The effect: a galactic glow inspired by the otherworldly landscape and night sky of the Arctic.

With three distinct effects: holographic, metallic, and radiant, the shades and shine range from demure to dramatic and create artful, luminous eye looks with ease.

The nine wearable hues were assembled to offer endless opportunity to play and customizable looks.

POLAR-ICE-PALETTE---OPEN_grandeBeauty with results Recognizing the potential in botanical ingredients is something that Chantecaille was built upon. When Sylvie discovered a field of Rose de Mai in Grasse, she zeroed in on a new, revolutionary rosewater that possessed unprecedented anti-aging, skin-perfecting benefits. Products that start with a foundation of anti-inflammatory, soothing plant-based ingredients that boost the skin’s natural protective qualities are at the heart of Chantecaille, and we are always ceaselessly searching for the most effective ingredients that produce the most impactful, visible, beautiful results.

Screen Shot 2019-09-07 at 6.55.07 AMCreated especially for High Definition cameras, Chantecaille’s revolutionary skin smoothing powder goes on without a trace, leaving only a flawless, matte finish. Worn over makeup, the translucent powder gently sets foundation, ensuring long lasting wear. Instantly erases the appearance pores and imperfections.

New micro-fine light perfecting powders, undetectable under High Definition cameras or by the naked eye, give all skin tones a flawless yet natural looking finish. It’s also one of the best powders that I have ever used, stays all day, using it with just concealer or on its own gives you all the same benefits, true to claims.

QUICK BRUSH REVIEW – WET N WILD | MXTC

Hi there, I hope everyone is well and are happy that it’s Friday! In Toronto currently is TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) which in my Monday to Friday job is true to form one of the busiest times for myself. IT! Chapter two comes out today, is anyone going to the opening? I’m going to do a “movie night” about it so there will be spoilers! So Wet n Wild just dropped some new pro brushes, they are simply beautiful in design but how do they preform? Keep reading to find out.

I was actually taken back when I open the Wet n Wild PR package for the their new Pro Brush Line I’m now using nothing but these brushes I took all of my brushes away to give them the best chance ➡️ before going on with reading this review I don’t wear eyeshadow personally so I will use a model to test related products or a face chart.

For the price point these brushes are amazing – I do fine that almost all of the brushes can be used as complexion brushes for example the Tapered Blending Brush (P15) is almost a better concealer brush, I did use it for both and that’s the best part of brushes they are extremely multipurpose. One of the down sides to these brushes is they have no weight to them at all, some enjoy that and some like myself, don’t ➡️ to me, they just feel a little bit cheap.

One of the best brushes is the Highlight Brush (P75) it’s the perfect size and the perfect amount of bristles to give you a beautiful subtile glow or if you want to be seen from space this brush has your back, and for $5.99 you can’t go wrong, the handles come into a point kind of like the KVD Brushes and have a ergonomic handle for a comfortable hold so you know how to properly hold the brush.
c237_2_1
One brush I fell in love with almost immediately was the Precision Flat Brush (P25) the densely packed bristles of the flat face brush is perfect for spot concealing and sculpting the face to perfection. It just gets those areas perfectly that other brushes just miss ➡️ no animals are harmed in the making of these brushes they are also fully vegan.

It really is a great way to get an entire brush set, all matching with beautiful rose gold handles but in person the come off a little more silver so they are “masculine enough” that men can use them also, they sell them all 10 Pro Brushes in a kit with a stand up brush bag for only $27.99 and you can grab that while you still can here.

➡️ Perhaps the only downside to this brush design is that white bristles are prone to staining, particularly if you are using very pigmented eyeshadows. I have noticed that a few of my eye brushes are not as bright and white now as when I first got them, having been used and washed multiple times. Granted, makeup brushes are meant to be used, and odds are if you’re using them often they’ll spend more time dirty than clean anyway, but it’s something to be aware of nevertheless.

Whether you’re looking to replace or build up your own brush collection, or on the hunt for a gift for your favorite makeup junkie, I think you won’t be disappointed if you decide to pick this up. I have a feeling they’re going to be pretty popular, though, so I would make sure you grab yours quick before they’re gone for good!

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.

Screen Shot 2019-09-04 at 6.19.20 AM
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.

This skin care really does change your skin! You won’t find it in Canada sadly but there is international shipping so we can all enjoy the benefits of House Of Aenea there is something there for all skin needs and concerns which is amazing – one of my favourite from the collection is they have ‘ the heroes ‘ they call which are the skin care that they put the most testing and the most get what you give and it is true they are amazing. I am actually going to be picking my favourite from the heroes and doing a giveaway with the House of Aenea Instagram all you have to do is be following me (@kaminreallife) and (@house_of_aenea) so it’s pretty simple to win $400.00 skin care item of your choice!

The Modern Shield I love so much, it’s more like a finisher to your skin care

  • A one-stop skin protector
  • The back-bone of your day to day skin defence, it works like an environmental shield
  • Protects from high energy visible light from computers

Offers protection from infra-red radiation

Life is sometimes complicated for our skin to deal with.  Step out of the door and ever-changing weather – sharp sudden bursts of sunlight followed by low-lying clouds for example – can create situations where our skin is damaged by the sun’s rays one minute and then absorbing pollutants from traffic fumes the next.

Modern-Shield
How does it work boys and girls?

Ormesia is the active ingredient found in AENEA Modern Shield, with extraordinary powers to protect the skin from indoor and outdoor pollutants. Derived from a climbing vine native to South America, the Maracuja plant is well known for its fruits which are used in food and medicine. It’s better known as the passion flower and loved for its beauty, juice and scent.

Rich in antioxidants, the Maracuja plant oil has the ability to strengthen the skin’s fibroblasts, increasing the elastin and collagen found naturally in the skin, and making it more able to withstand aggression.Offering protection from airborne pollutants, it also detoxifies and prevents against sun damage, activating your skin’s self-defence mechanisms and revealing its natural radiance. Crucially it also helps to inhibit the skin’s natural reactions to high energy visible light from our computers and supports the cell’s DNA.The Modern Shield is the perfect hero product to protect from the effects of sun damage and UV rays on the skin (amongst other things) using the most up to date vegan and anti-ageing ingredients and formulations.

Lifestyle Enhancer

  • Protects your skin from ageing caused by oxidation
  • Keeps your skin youthful and elastic by fighting glycation
  • Helps reduce wrinkles and lines
  • Increases skin firmness

    AENEA Lifestyle Enhancer is a skin serum which works a bit like a booster for your daily beauty regime to tackle the effects of glycation. What is glycation exactly? Technically it’s the process by which the structure and activity of proteins within the skin becomes slowly stiffer, leading to the collagen and elastin becoming less elastic, a well-known cause of premature ageing.

    Lifestyle-2.jpg

    Another way to understand glycation is if you think about what happens when meat is cooked in a frying pan.  As it is exposed to heat, the natural sugars in it become more rigid until finally the steak is hard.

    This is what happens to our skin when it is exposed to the ageing rays of the sun – it’s slowly glycating. As the sugar molecules react with free amino groups of proteins, irreversible cross-linked molecules are formed, modifying the structure of our skin and making it appear more brittle and stiff. It’s an irreversible process, causing yellowing of the skin, and a loss of elasticity and suppleness.  Made worse by high dietary glucose levels, and by natural ageing, it has an overall detrimental effect on the visible appearance of our skin.

    Those would be my absolute two favourite from the hero collection and i know without a doubt anyone given the change to get tone of my two favourites will have their skin changed almost over night – it is absolutely unbelievable i stand behind any of the products that i review and it takes me a long time to review the skin care and in sure that its right for me, men and woman!  this brand had changed my skin care game in so many ways! It’s funny because I used to struggle and struggle just like all of you trying to find the right brand for me and I would always be told the ingredients are the same is exhibit a vs. exhibit b that is so far from the truth and we all know it, we get what we pay for! plain and simple.

PR samples. Affiliate links | Exciting! A brand new concealer from Marc Jacobs Beauty! I have all the details, along with my review and swatches of the Marc Jacobs Accomplice Concealer. Enjoy! I also have the new Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder (must have) here for you to see, so keep reading to find out what you want to know!

marc-jacobs-accomplice-concealer-powder-review
Accomplice is a brand new collection designed to give you flawless, perfected, filtered skin. There’s a creamy concealer stick and also an Instant Blurring Beauty Powder.

The Accomplice Concealer claims ➡️ Creamy concealer and touch-up stick ➡️ Full coverage Long wearing Blends seamlessly for skin that looks totally natural ➡️ Can be used under or over makeup ➡️ Blurs the look of pores and fine lines ➡️ Covers dark circles and blemishes ➡️ Evens out skin tone Formulated with hydrating snow mushroom ➡️ Resists creasing or caking ➡️ Packaging designed to be easy to use on the go ➡️ Stick is created with a dip to fit finger ➡️ Can also be applied using a brush or sponge, or straight from the stick ➡️ 17 shades, I’m not sure if this is Marc Jacobs Beauty first launch of the Accomplice line but I don’t really think in this day and age having only 17 shades is really that acceptable but due but the brand did only send me three shades they thought were closer to me and the powder within my category shade so that they don’t waste packaging and so they they don’t waste product so I’ll pop into a local Sephora and check out the full line up when they launch!

marc-jacobs-accomplice-concealer-swatches-2

I was particularly excited to try this concealer because Marc Jacobs Beauty know how to do coverage. The stick format is super convenient and my hope was that it was like the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer but in a stick ➡️ it pretty much is just what I hoped for! I am actually so happy regarding this because the product from NARS was 

I used it straight from the stick on to my face but I allowed the product to warm up a bit from the warmth coming off my skin, and it blended out effortless creating a super flawless finish. It blurs pores, covers redness and pigmentation, and works as well under the eyes as it does on all the other areas of the face. I have only used it once so far – I tested it out yesterday and plan to wear it again today – but it was love at first try. I actually got asked if I was wearing any makeup or is that just how perfect my skin is and when I say i did just a little under eye, beside my nose and blended all together with enough to cover my eyelid then a but on my chin ➡️ no primer also. I was done and out the door. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ The one thing I would say is that if your skin is dry, or dries out during the day, reapplication can feel a little dry, so I’d recommend a quick hydrating spritz first.

marc-jacobs-accomplice-instant-blurring-beauty-powder-review

It is creamy and glides on to the skin with ease, and then just takes a light tap of the fingertip to blend in. It couldn’t be easier and is the perfect handbag (or bag pack) essential for touch ups on. I am actually looking at the claims and I’m trying to find something that it’s not capable of.

Accomplice instant blurring beauty powder claims➡️ Blurring, touch-up powder ➡️ Formulated to set, blur, and reduce the look of shine ➡️ Comes in a compact with a built-in brush ➡️ Perfect for use while out ➡️ Use it to refresh makeup throughout the day  ➡️ Contains perfecting pearl pigment to diffuse light & filter away the look of imperfections  ➡️ Available in 4 core color

It is very light and weightless, and does work to blur the look of pores and lines. My first impressions of this are good, but I need a bit more time to work out how much I need it in my life as a man who wears makeup sometimes the powder can be that one that gives it away. I legit cannot over look and thats the built in brush, not just you open it up and there is a small puff or little brush – nooooope, the entire and I mean like a transformer sorry thats just what it makes me think or my reference point about comes apart and it’s a full packing dense fan almost, it’s wonderful and so smart on the MJB team.

Finally I got my MacBook back (though I do find myself getting stuck on the command and control key) from the Microsoft Chrome challenge, wow it took a little bit longer with shipping it back to me and everything like that, it also got stuck in customs for a very long time, but I’m going to break out the similarities and big differences between the two powerful computers in a coming post! I’ve also decided that any post that is for spring beauty, or new spring launches i will call ‘IN BLOOM’ which just seemed to be, just fitting too me! How are you boys and girls doing? I truly hope that you are all doing well, in Canada central Canada the weather has been pretty good! Not to cold but thankful not to hot!

I don’t know why but I seem always over look Charlotte Tilbury! i remember going to a press event for he line coming into Holt Renfrew in Toronto on Bloor St. I wasn’t really liking the feel mind you Faulhaber Communications who was organizing this whole event and you can quote me on this, I truly think there is no better PR Agency in Canada then Faulhaber – they just do things one step on the game! But anyways a PR agency is not why we are here Charlotte Tilbury is, I just have to say how on the website its all ” hello darling “ it truly is iconically Charlotte, after meeting her now when I read the names or read a paragraph,  I can literally her her saying it, it’s wonderful! 

If you were to buy one thing for Charlotte Tilbury it should be the Magic Away Concealer and heres why honestly the Magic Concealer is like spanx for your eyes as much as that sounds, its completely true! it spreads itself out so thin but there is so much pigment and added benefits to it –  is an incredible full coverage liquid concealer in a netural shade for all skin tones and undertones. For five years, Charlotte Tilbury has been working on this holy grail of concealers that reduces the appearance of dark circles, blemishes and imperfections, for fresher-looking second skin instantly!

Charlotte-Tilbury-x-complexion-collection-x-rubric

SIDE NOTE ➡️ If you think that this concealer was not 5 years in the making you are wrong! we would get yearly updated from who handle CT PR either the USA or Canada firm.

Next would be Charlotte’s Unisex Healthy Glow which is a hydrating tint – it’s not as full if  a hydrant as a tinted moisturizer, I would recommend putting a little of a stronger hydrator around your nose, chin, between the brows and centre of the forehead to give it that BAM This fabulous unisex cream is SO natural, no one will suspect you’re wearing it! and its so true so who else to try it on but my boyfriend who actually still wears it to date within his skin care regime, it really does just even out the skin with just enough coverage with a hit of bronze that you wouldn’t really expect. It kinda reminds of the Recipe For Men Bronze cream which does the similar thing ➡️ if not the exact same only its made to work more with mens skin and testosterone and such – which when you’re a man it’s nice to have those options without calling it ‘makeup’ and when I say if you’re a man I mean it as a guy who doesn’t wear makeup or know the world of makeup; plain and simple!

Screen Shot 2019-03-30 at 5.44.09 AM

➡️ Next on my would be the Goddess Ritual Cleanser Duo from Charlotte Tilbury it’s absolutely one of my must have for cleaners ➡️ I always say that cleansers are a grey area, many disagree with me but it’s true, I don’t think there is enough time used to be able to make a difference within the skin, I’m not saying that they don’t do anything because they do, but what follows after cleansing your skin us where you will see the most benefits until trying this ➡️ Deeply purifying, super-charged cleansing duo for fresh, radiant-looking skin just make sure if you have blemish prone skin watch out for large doses of vitamin c sometimes with some skin it can have a negative effect! Sadly I know this all to well!

COVETED TOP 5 : NARS | M X T C

Hey guys, what’s going on! my jaw is on it’s way to healing very nicely! I’m scared for the next week, it’s going to be uneasy for me, Today, my mom is going for her triple bypass surgery, I’m nervous, but I assume that the doctors do this kind of thing every day and it’s just a walk in the park for them, no more time, and no more second chances here but I still have so much to say, so I hope that it goes smoothly and there is still time for me to say what I need to say, sadly my schedule doesn’t allow for me to be there until tomorrow, so I am just hoping in time.

Today I’m going to be talking about the coveted top 5 NARS products as decided by, you. This is a semi sponsored post, as the images and coding is all provided by NARS. I do believe that this is, in fact, the coveted NARS top 5.

Yes, there will be a NARS item in the spring giveaway, if you’re curious how this works the secrets to the giveaway are left in previous posts (and moving forward), I will let you know when the items are full up, and how you win, well, you will have to be smart this giveaway is items given direct from the companies and PR so you will be sent a list of brands and their social handles so that you may tag them in your IG winning post, there will also maybe be a brand or 19, 05, or maybe 15 looking for it for something special to be given.

Don’t stop. Keep going. NARS mascara, Climax, wants to give it to you – it being long, fluffy, thick lashes that just go on and on and on. Climax contains a full-bodied brush with a whipped, creamy formula that lifts and builds without clumping. There are very few mascaras that I would recommend in fact there are only 3.

➡️ The dictionary definition of the word climax is ‘the most intense, exciting, or important point of something; the culmination.’ So that’s a pretty ballsy name for a mascara. I was ready to get extra critical and pick this mascara apart like it was Bruce Willis and I was Demi Moore on Comedy Central’s Roast. But despite being on high alert for flaws, I couldn’t find any.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I used Climax on myself, my friend and set model. Each with different results, and with both girls having completely full busy days, both reporting back that it stayed out, only one saying at the complete end of her night there was a small flake under the bottom lash line.

Next coveted item I’m sure you already know, Radiant creamy concealer which move over shapetape is now the new number one selling concealer in America and Canada which is pretty cool. Seems a lot of people have forgave NARS for the whole China thing or they just forgot.

➡️ There is 30 shades in this concealer which is a good shade range for everyone, this concealer is also one of those concealers where its the perfect finish for conceal, contour and highlight, and with the buildable coverage puts the control in your hands. This concealer is also one of those under eye perfect concealers, personally I like a matte finish under the eye but this concealer is a really beautiful finish under the eye, and doesn’t crack, keeps the area hydrated and fresh.

➡️ Even though this is full coverage ➡️ it doesn’t look flat on the skin and that is the most important thing for me when it comes to concealer. If that isn’t the one thing you look for, it should be.

Next is Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation which comes in 34 shades and is probably one of the best set foundations with editing – so if a photo is going to be altered and edited, the makeup artist will lay down almost like colors for the person in editing to know the intended shades and where they go, with lines and almost like a blueprint on the face for the person in Photoshop. For day to day foundation I actually wasn’t a big fan of this but I know it’s 1 of   NARS best selling items and is a great foundation in regards to ingredients.

The NARS PowerMatte Lip Pigment is one word ➡️ NARS
is a definitive cult classic, remaining at the forefront of the beauty world and quickly gaining a permanent place in the hearts (and make up bags!) of all who try it. Uniting impressive pigment with precision (basically the ultimate lip wear power couple) this is NARS’ most powerful matte.

➡️ The liquefied pigment gives a weightless feel and grants ultra-flexible, long-lasting wear. It’s totally smudge and budge-proof, guaranteeing carefree wear, and unstoppable wear.

Warning: this is likely to turn you into a fully-fledged NARSissist. Without a doubt I feel the NARS power matte lip pigment is truly one of a kind. It is very easy to apply and feels weightless on the lips. The colour pigmentation is second to none.

I think that we all know what the last item is going to be from the top NARS items, and that is, without a doubt – NARS Orgasm Blush! is probably one of the most popular blushes from NARS.  It’s known for being one of those universal colors that looks good on everyone, and gives a sort of ‘glow’ to the skin with its fine gold shimmer.

NARS Orgasm is pretty pinkish-peach color with a golden shimmery sheen.  I find it works great as a sort of two-in-one highlighter and blush.  The light bounces of the soft gold shimmer and creates a glowy effect, while the peachy pink warms the cheeks.
