EXCLUSIVE : HAUS LABORATORIES PRESS DINNER IN VANCOUVER | M X T C

I was nothing but honoured to be invited to the Canadian launch of HAUS LABORATORIES by Lady Gaga press dinner in Vancouver which I told myself I would be at no matter what, I am so happy that i went and if it goes like that for all press dinners maybe I would find myself attending more, moving on, Lady Gaga’s beauty line went on pre-sale July 15th and will be on sale in September 17 – FLARE Magazine and I questioned will it even be sold in Canada, since this was a press dinner in Canada that should answer the question. (yes)

Lady Gaga is finally putting her take on beauty in our hands, all our hands, because it will be available not only on hauslabs.com but on Amazon: “Just like with my music, I wanted everyone to have access to it.”

I did have one of the best times at this dinner, It’s one of those times where you’re having so much fun that you forget just what you’re there for, and you tune in to the information you should be listening to, crap! Gaga is into the makeup part of the equation for sure. She reviewed formulas, named products, picked components and brought in her friend and makeup artist Sarah Tanno as global artistry director for the brand, which everyone who knows Gaga’s makeup day to day would not be shocked by this at all.

On the print out and video clogged iPad in front of us ➡️ While it’s uncommon for new beauty brands to be unveiled in July, Le Bourgeois said it is common for new concepts to launch on Prime Day. Amazon has executed successful Prime Day launches in categories like books and video games before, he said. Plus, for something like Haus Laboratories, it allows time to make more products if preorders exceed expectations.

Update ➡️ Amazon Prime Day is here, and that means Haus Laboratories has officially arrived. It includes nine different duos (either two lip liners, two glosses, or two Glam Attack shimmer powders, in a range of shades), and also six different three-piece sets. Each three-piece set — or “haus” — includes an RIP Lip Liner, a Le Riot Gloss, and a Glam Attack.

Lady Gaga sees your face-tuned beauty ideals, and she wants to smash them. Lately I’ve been feeling the same way also the promise of something better can only get you  so far, I’ve always said that makeup isn’t there to fix or change anything but to enhance the beauty you already have but its true, even I sometimes follow suite and won’t leave the house without insuring all redness is gone. 

I am excited to see all the PR Packages be sent out and all the youtubers and bloggers to start really ripping the brand apart as they do! it happens with each and every brand – there was address fill out form but I’m really not 100% that Gaga will even bother sending out because of the pre-sale.

Let’s break down the Oh Mama set because, wow – I do want to say sadly this isn’t available anymore but they have something very special coming in July which I have signed a NDA to exclusive rights.

The sad truth is whether you’re jet-setting across the globe or just a few hours away, airplane cabins have a major impact on your skin ➡️ flights zap the moisture straight from our faces, leaving us with duller complexions, tightness, and even irritation, dermatologist Elena Poulos of Toronto, ON told MXTC. The main point I am trying to make is that it doesn’t matter if you’re spending an hour or twelve hours the results will be the same, damage to your major organ.

“Sunday and her team really took the time to understand how travel and the aircraft environment affects our customers, and formulated an in-flight remedy that complements their journey with United from beginning to end,” United’s vice president of marketing Mark Krolick said in a press release. “By elevating the skincare products offered on our planes and in our lounges, we can continue to lift the experience customers have when traveling with United.”

IN BLOOM – CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC AWAY COLLECTION WITH A TWIST | M X T C

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! Who you rather it be hot? or cold? or just fall all year round but we had a week of peak sumner heat!

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!

➡️ Just in case you didn’t know the same woman who invented ZIIP Beauty also came out with the same to a very exspensive skin care line, for example the Serum C is $200.00US and found wherever exspensive skin care is sold! I was sent two bottles on for me, and one for the giveaway and after just one use – wow.

GIVEAWAY SIDE NOTE ➡️ if you think that you found the clues and the end day, and what you have to do to enter the giveaway just sent me a DM on Instagram and I will let you know if you’re correct. Even if you’re not, you will still be entered +1 but if you are right you’ll get you will be entered +5

When Melanie Simon began using this potent, highly concentrated, highly stabilized vitamin C serum on her clients, she saw results she had never seen before. Pores tightened, fine lines vanished, redness subsided, skin tone brightened, and the glow was surreal. Clients started asking to take home this magic in a bottle, so Melanie prepared take-home potions and stamped a C on them with her wax seal.

Great for all skin types, vitamin C is the star ingredient because of its ability to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage. Plus, unlike most vitamin C products, Melanie’s is incredibly stable and can withstand light and air exposure. That’s why it’s safe and active even in its clear bottle.

➡️ START WITH A DRY CANVAS
Wash your face, pat dry. If you use toners and thin serums, apply those, and let them dry first. Now it’s Serum C time.

➡️ APPLY 5 TO 10 DROPS OF SERUM C
Basically, you want to use enough so that you can cover your entire face and neck. Lightly sweep Serum C around your face and up the neck, avoiding the eye area.

➡️ WAIT 5 TO 10 MINUTES
Serum C works wonders, but it doesn’t play nicely with other active skincare ingredients. Give it time alone to do its job and create a glaze on your skin. You’ll know when it’s time to move on, because Serum C will no longer feel slippery to the touch. I like to wait the full 10 minutes. I make a cup of tea, and get my clothes ready for the day. What would you do in these 10 minutes?

➡️ CONTINUE YOUR ROUTINE
For some people,
Serum C is the last step in their skincare routine. If your skin needs more hydration, layer on your other products, always applying from thinnest to thickest.

This truly was a game changer in the terms of the strength of the product and what it does for my skin, this one bottle took the place of almost 4 jars and bottles, truly it is only my second day using this product but the results you see fast, and you know they will last.

It helps with everything that I am currently looking for from my skin care right now, and I’m not going too  lie I kind of stopped using my ZIIP for no other reason then I’m just so busy and tired at night doing the entire skin routine plus the skin would be like 20 minutes which really isn’t that bad if you think about for skin that’s well, perfect. I need to get back to that for sure.

I’m excited for who ever wins the giveaway just to receive this one product! So good luck and don’t forget all you need to know is in past posts. If you can read between the lines you’re golden. I’m also capping it at 5 people. so they have a really good chance to win!

NUDE BY NATURE | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

I hate when people say, oh this brand changed my skin or that they wouldn’t do if they didn’t find this brand, but and this will bite me in the ass – I was lucky enough to be sent there full holiday line and basic SKU set including multiple doubles, and this brand is all from nature but you are not sacrificing the quality of the coverage but it’s in a powder, of course they have a full range of items and consistencies. Lets break it down. Also just to note I will not be getting into products within this post, I will be talking about the brand and what takes them a step above.

Nude by Nature was created in 2008 in Sydney, Australia, born from a demand by a society that was becoming more and more conscious of their health, lifestyle and environmental choices. Exercise, diet and food labelling were all hotly discussed topics. Skincare was also becoming increasingly important, however whilst people were trying to avoid toxins and harsh chemicals during their morning and evening skincare routine, they weren’t spending the same energy selecting the best makeup. Great skincare covered by harsh make-up means you’re building something wonderful only to tear it down.

They spend a lot of time choosing what’s good. With Nude by Nature, there’s compromise. Which believe it or not its something that you need to take active action with because it isn’t something that anyone should play with, you’re spending less and less on makeup due to the high price tag never really looking at the ingredients, it isn’t the way it should be done. Nude by Nature’s promise is to deliver high-performing natural formulas that provide a beautiful finish and benefits that go beyond make-up.

dontletmedown
It is true, Tarte was not the first brand to use clay based ingredients.

Nude by Nature products are made with 100% natural ingredients and formulated without synthetic ingredients or preservatives often found in cosmetics such as Silicone, Siloxanes, Phthalates, Sulphate, PEGS, Triclosan, Phenoxyethanol or Parabens, and do not contain Carmine, Talc or Bismuth Oxychloride – Sourced from pristine environments, Nude by Nature harnesses powerful native Australian ingredients such as Kakadu Plum, known to have the world’s richest source of natural Vitamin C, anti-ageing Lilly Pilly, and Cehami to provide antioxidant defence and benefit the skin.

Cruelty-free means vegan? Not necessarily. The term ‘cruelty-free’ means no form of animal testing has taken place at any point in the creation of a brand’s products. While a product labelled ‘vegan’ means it must not contain any animal products, animal by-products, or animal derivatives, though sadly that does not signify that the product is also certified cruelty-free, or not tested on animals. It’s important to remember a product can be cruelty-free without being vegan.

thinksits
Nude by Nature is proudly cruelty-free and PETA certified, and has a broad selection of vegan friendly products, plus an extensive range of cruelty-free professional make-up brushes. The non-vegan products in the range may contain beeswax and or lanolin, which are both ethically sourced and no animals are harmed in the production of these ingredients. While still cruelty-free, our products that contain these ingredients cannot be considered vegan.

surpise
If you are interested in a particular Nude by Nature product and would like to know whether it is vegan friendly, check the full ingredients listing available on all products online and on our product packaging. If you would like further assistance, the Customer Care Team will gladly assist you in selecting vegan friendly Nude by Nature makeup.

THIS IS NOT A DREAM | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

ICEICE
In total, the collection is massive, consisting of one eyeshadow palette, one highlighter palette and four highlighter singles, one Super Shock Shadow vault, one kit, and six shadow singles, eight jelly shadows, nine body glitters, four lip bundles, a liquid lipstick vault, a makeup bag, and a partridge in a pear tree, oh, I am joking about that last one, but seriously — this line has a lot going on, and it’s all so, so good. I’m tempted to say this might be the brand’s best collection to date.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I do want to just say that I did not pay the price tag if $300.00US I was sent this collection in PR and I am adding it to my iPhone give away all you have to do is follow my IG account for a chance to win – I will not use this collection as I am a man and I was sent it in hopes of review but I know that this collection and a brand new black iPhone XR would make someone’s holiday’s better! ALSO this collection is sold out and will not be restocked!

this-is-not-a-dream-collection_a_eb1b0426-5f0c-4731-b970-2af9b18338b8_800x1200
The Chasing Rainbows Palette is 15-pan palette which features the perfect ratio of wearable neutrals and shimmery statement shades. The top row of the palette is neutral and bronzy, while the middle row includes some fun-yet-wearable pinky berry tones. The last row is where things get really funky, with a few metallic shades, teals, and a matte aubergine to smoke things out.

drrrream
Jumping to the face for some major cheek shimmer, look no further than the Super Shock highlight palette it’s very pretty and what I like is the shades are very, very versatile. “Counting Sheep” is an ivory with a silvery sheen, “Pinch Me” is an opal pink accented by violet duo chrome glitters, “Guilty Pleasure” is an icy peach with golden sheen, and “Mr. Wind” is a light coral with a silvery sheen. If you don’t want to buy all four they do sell them in single form for only $8.00US oh – did I forget to say that everything inside this collection is available in single form.

➡️
 I do find a lot of brand not being so exclusive with PR packages anymore meaning that they send then out to writers, influencers and editors and then once reviews go up and the brand picks up a little speed, it’s available to the masses – seem to me that this happen after that silly rumor that influencers get better quality products in PR.

The entire Holiday Collection includes the Chasing Rainbows Shadow Palette, Dream Sequence Super Shock Highlighter Palette, Flying Colours Liquid Lip Vault, Double Rainbow Super Shock Shadow Kit, Dream Baby Dream Lippie Stix Kit, and brand new shades of Jelly Much Shadow and Glitter Obsessed Body Glitters. Now I know that that is a lot of items and I’m not going to write about a lot of it only a couple of the items that I received extras of because I don’t want to for hygienic reasons as one of you killer babes will win it along with the new iPhone XR.

So this will be a smaller review of a five minute read which I’m wanting to start to do more of because who has the time to sit and read, I’m also getting everything that I need for video set up and my move from WordPress  to my own domain and site is almost done, it will be happening into 2019.

Remember follow me on Instagram for your chance to win above items and check out my full ‘The Cut’ review ➡️ THE CUT | DERMAROLLER | MAKEUPANDTHECITY there is a lot of information.

#️⃣ MAKEUPANDTHECITY!!!

Hey friends, Is everyone getting ready for the holidays? Putting up the tree? We all have so much to be thankful for even if we sometimes forget what it is exactly. I have found myself in the holiday mood once or twice – I have also thought about starting my own YouTube channel, with all the successful items one would need, well I guess you don’t need these items to be successful but for quality it helps to have appropriate lighting, a good camera that shoots 4K HD video and we can’t forget the background relating to who you are as a person, and trust me I tried to have a burning tree behind me but I ended up going to jail for a night for endangerment and being reckless, imagine that..

That going to jail and burning tree was obviously a joke, but I am sure, uh, hopeful that you all got that it was meant to be a joke! Moving on from that! Happy Friday everyone! so I was sent something that I was actually pretty interested in trying and have been for a while now but its one of those items that you think about or see and want to try but once it fades out of your mind, you forget, until you see it again and wonder why you forget in the first place! I assume you read that I’m talking about a DermRoller specifically the luxury and very, expensive Dermaroller and products within the brand, DermSpark, after reading the facts, doing my research and trying the product for three weeks, did it make the cut?

img_0270
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Optimal number needle count (162) ➡️ Durable and can be used 3 times a week for up to one year ➡️ Safe and easy to use ➡️ Significantly enhances infusion of important nutrients ➡️ Medical grade a-traumatic (non-traumatic) needles.

I first want to start off with Dermaroller vs. other rollers because Dermaroller sells for almost $400.00 Canadian but it also comes with Hyaluronic Acid Ampules and we will get into the other products  in a bit. I found myself doing a lot of research when I opened this box because I have no clue why I was sent this until I read it was sent to me in consideration of review so I had to see what made this roller better then say a $20.00 on off Amazon so I went ahead a bought one and found out there was a massive difference in the needles, one being in the separation of them, two being the sharpness, I have a litt le magnifier microscope that plus into my MacBook via USB – and I was kind of shocked at what I saw, the Dermaroller was smooth, there was not a lot of blood, and was ideal in the production of collagen. The Roller I got off Amazon looked horrible, there was a lot of blood and it just looked like I have scratches like an intense rug burn – I also saw that the needles on the Dermaroller were cut fine like a needle should be, and the Roller needles looked almost like staples. Also the way they handled was like night and day. So I do not recommend buying this online from Amazon if its something that you would like to try.

Dermaroller-vs-others
Did it work? Yes, it did. It was so amazing actually for tone, pigmentation, I have a very strong jaw line and smile lines and I wont lie I thought about getting filler and Restylane and I mean lately I was thinking about it a lot because its a not so permeate way to get the look I want – but I have no need for that now, I understand that you’d love to wake up to glowing skin every morning, you might want to learn more about DermarollerDermaroller can help encourage your skin to create new collagen and elastin, helping your skin look plump, smooth, supple, and healthy. It rejuvenates by using tiny needles to puncture the top layer of your skin, which trigger collagen and elastin production.

➡️ Stimulates the regeneration of skin cells through light puncturing of the skin

➡️ Old skin cells are also removed

➡️ Skin becomes more radiant, complexion becomes more refined, and blackheads, spots and enlarged pores can be reduced

➡️ See brighter, fresher, younger-looking skin

With optimal needle count, the Home Care Roller by Dermaroller maximizes effectiveness, safety and comfort. Using the highest quality micro-needles from Germany, treatment with the Dermaroller is virtually painless. No lie. I also love that in addition to improving skin tone, Dermaroller can also reduce the appearance of scars, pore size, lines and insecurities. It can be combined with other treatments, such as Tarte Knock Out which is an acid treatment to resurface the skin, it’s a ten percent acid complex which can be kind of strong for some skin types, and let me tell you, it burns on it’s own but, oh god, after the Dermaroller it stings a bee, but my skin hasn’t looked this good in a very, very long time!

threeinhereSIDE NOTE ➡️ Dermaroller might not be right for you if you currently have active acne. The Dermaroller can easily spread bacteria over the skin, potentially causing breakouts, or making them a lot worse.

I was also sent Hyaluronic Acid Ampules which are incredible and these are the exact same vials as the plastic surgeons office, I thought that was pretty cool. They are perfectly formulated to deeply hydrate and support the natural moisture of the skin it also will bind with waters that fill spaces between collagen fibres, keeping them resilient and elastic.

➡️ The box comes with 30 ampules that contain 1.5ml each, for a total of 45 ml.

So I guess this would be the end, I hope that you guys like the longer more detail reviews in The Cut, I really want to see if the product(s) make The Cut – and yes DERMSPARK DERMAROLLER made The Cut! The last thing I would like to say is make sure if you’re not buying a Dermaroller due to the price point, please do your research because more get 1.5mm needles and that will destroy your skin from first go : it is recommended that for the first three months you use only 0.5mm needles and if, and only if you start to feel it isn’t working out as well you can then go up a size.

BEAUTY NEWS / LIFE 101 / WINTER SKIN YOU’D KILL FOR / IPHONE XR GIVEAWAY (CANADA)| MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi beautiful people –

⏯ PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!
#️⃣ MAKEUPANDTHECITYHOLIDAY!!!

What’s going on guys and girls, I’m sure that you’ve heard that one of the biggest beauty brands in the word (COVERGIRL) just became the largest brand to take the leap and go completely cruelty free, moving forward that is – I couldn’t see them getting rid of and replacing all existing products around the world and redoing planograms with the news. What is your thoughts about ‘Cruelty Free’ and Vegan? Is that something that you’re thinking about when you purchase makeup, doesn’t it almost seem like it’s trendy to be cruelty free or something like they don’t care about the animals they only care about the bottom line, and I wonder exactly what at this point, on that day, made them go hey lets go cruelty free – yeah it’s amazing but why now? and why not a long time ago.
CoverGirl
You know what they say, better late then never. Cruelty free international presented COVERGIRL with the internationally recognized gold standard for cruelty free designation.  No other certification program has the rigor that seeks to completely eliminate animal testing from a brand’s supply chain – it certifies that no COVERGIRL products or ingredients are tested on animals, either by COVERGIRL or its suppliers.

Do you guys believe in PNR? (PAID NEGATIVE REVIEWS) I can tell you first hand that there is, and I have been offered and truthfully when I was starting out with this did accept a PNR because I was childish and inconsiderate – but I have tried to fix the wrongs of my past and now I’ve been honest with the company who I said some not so nice things about and found out that they are better then the company who paid me to give a not so nice review and hype them, I’m sure if you look at my blog you can see in more recent posts just who I am talking about but truthfully that’s what stopped me from writing for so long, it just was a stupid thing and it not only jeopardized my integrity, but it influenced you, my friends and family too choose something based off of a lie. I’m very sorry – I’ve come to learn from my mistakes.

I’ve come to find the best skin care for me! It would be Knock Out by Tarte, MDNA skin The Serum and the Maracuja Gold Oil from Tarte and I will tell you why, when winter or colder weather comes around I like a little more protection for my skin, I’m one of those people who were like ‘oh oil for my skin, that doesn’t seem like a good idea for me’ I just thought since I have oily skin it would clog my pores like a lot of us but it is actually non-acnegenic which is a huge, huuuuuge plus for me! It’s a lightweight oil that hydrates the skin and balances acne prone skin which I didn’t know till I opened a 4 month package. My bad. I will also add that if you are not using this for a flawless makeup base I would only use it at night and I would remember that a little goes a long way when it cones to any face oils.

Also – I have been mixing it in with my Tarte stick foundation while I’m doing by skin care, you know just under the eyes, around the nose and chin followed by adding adding some of the not so new NARS powder just repackaged so everyone thinks its new – in the shade flesh. It gives you the skin that you wish you had while under the makeup when you take it off you actually start to feel a lot more comfortable without makeup which is a huge plus because flaws are beauty too me! No one is perfect. If we all embraced our flaws then, oh know the beauty community would be no more! but we would be more empowered and comfortable!

Wow, Did anyone else hear about Victoria’s Secret backlash due to saying they wouldn’t cast transgender or plus-size models? “Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy,” he told the publication. “It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is.” I am not going to even ask if you feel this is right because plain and simple it’s disgusting and wrong. We just need to keep the faith and make the worse seem better. I guess I will just post this video if Gigi Gorgeous who truly said it correctly.

So tell me, do you think this is fair? or right in any way at all? I am also going to be giving away a new iPhone XR in the same shade I have in yellow! my favourite color of course! Why, Yellow can represent anything. Sadness, Happiness anything you want it too be. Just like me, I can be whatever you’d like! This giveaway is only for Canada as I’m trying to grow my Canadian audience but I will include a Catrice 24h HD foundation vault for my international family, and the new tarteist™ PRO REMIX Amazonian clay palette which is you know there is a long, long waitlist for. It sold out within seconds – funny they did a brighter eyeshadow palette the same time James Charles x Morphe came out. (finishes: 🎨 matte 🎨 luster 🎨 metallic 🎨 duo chrome 🎨 shimmer 🎨 floating glitter)
