TOP THREE EYES.LIPS.FACE *DUPE ALERT | MXTC BEAUTY | MAKEUPxTHECITY

What is cookin’ good lookin’ welcome back to MAKEUPxTHECITY (MXTC BEAUTY) yes, you may have noticed that I’ve previously started changing names, traveling more and organizing some pretty cool things with some amazing brands and companies, so at this point I can say, I used to have a dream of a makeup line but I jumped into it way to fast and wanted to much to soon and it, it just didn’t work and wasn’t branded right, so I’m now working with a partner for MXTC BEAUTY and the first thing will be launch is the ultimate face(s) brush set, which is three brushes with iconic charcoal fibers that will change the way you do your entire base with only three brushes that you will use for, concealer, foundation, primer, powder(s), contour, highlight, skin care if you want one of the biggest things is the forth item that comes inside the package that allows you to change between only the three brushes and not have carry any product over, birthing the only face base set from MXTC BEAUTY, I am going to be sending these out in PR before I even tell a retailer and a launch date because I want word of mouth to travel globally. Permanently infused with Charcoal powder.  Paraben and sulfate free.  Brushes stay fresher for longer and more importantly are anti-bacterial ➡️  it’s also the as mentioned above the fourth item within that will change and I mean change your base routine also just the unique brush cute, the length of the beautiful handles, so much more – I also want to say thank you to Cosmetco Company and TrustPilot  for helping to make my vision a reality and CROWN Brushes for sitting down with me and really showing me the ropes! Ok so that’s my little news! Let’s move on to E.L.F and drugstore products!

So I’ve found that E.L.F has came out with products that, well, could be considered DUPES but from my research some, and I mean some of them E.L.F actually came out first, also – did you know our favourite luxe brands are actually inflated prices of up to 70% – yikes. If you check the ingredients list you will find a lot of the items of the high end list and of E.L.F are the same. I’ve picked three items from E.L.F that I think are just to good to be true for the items and complete threats. E.L.F came to play, and they are not stopping and why would they. Why should they?.

Item one is clear and obvious, E.L.F Camo Concealer which is such a killer concealer, I littler only use a concealer under my eyes blended down to around my nose, and a vegan setting powder that just melts into the skin and melts into the concealer. The intense pigmentation is full coverage, but won’t settle into fine lines, courtesy of its oil-balancing formula that leaves behind a full matte finish so make sure that you lay down moisturizer and a good primer!

➡️ I said that I am done with the company Tarte, I’ve made it very, very clear that I did not wish to work with them anymore, buuuut I have to bring attention to the fact that E.L.F Camo Concealer and Tarte Shapetape are almost one the same – Tarte finish in my eyes is actually less then Eyes Lip Face (E.L.F) I love the matte finish and the extreme coverage. I will actually be showing both wanders and you will see they are identical ➡️ which is bananas to me! It does leaves a long lasting, velvety matte finish that looks almost airbrushed. I even tried it under my eyes, where I tend not to use any matte products, and it was still good. I mean, I do like something a lot dewier for that area, but it isn’t at all unflattering and doesn’t settle into the lines.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ E.L.F is actually labeled as the best budget concealer all the luxury ingredients for only $5.00 ($6.00 in Canada) remember when I said luxe brands mark up also 70% please always remember that but also, don’t be running to a dollar store saying Kam told me too!

With this concealer you can’t go wrong for the price, for the packaging and for the fact that it works, and it works good, and the fact that if you try to find it right now it’s pretty much sold out almost everywhere! They do re-stock them quickly but you have to go or recheck as much as you can and it would be the same as my other two items on the list!

The next item is E.L.F Booster Drops for skin care to custom create your own regime or to add and use as serum! personally I like to add it right to my skin in a patting motion so that it protects against any feature break outs, I don’t have acne or breakouts as it stands but I love the smell of tea tree oil, zinc, which hazel and all the other none chemical ingredients! but guess who came out with very similar if not the same items COVER FX also lets not forget COVER FX used to be sold in drug stores to help people with problem skin and personally I feel as if they sold out, they were already a million(s) dollar company so I don’t get why but that’s how it works I guess.

There are many benefits to a booster serum, and it differs from your regular serum by giving you faster results. The ingredients are concentrated in larger amounts, which gives you a “boost” in outcomes. You typically use three to four drops on your face, and you can use it with a combination of other serums and lotions in a multiple-step skincare routine, delivering a series of restorative ingredients that will get your complexion to look its best. But seeing how it’s such an effective product, small viles usually cost anywhere between $30-$100 or more, which isn’t easily accessible to beauty lovers on a smaller budget. Seeing that gap in need, E.L.F stepped in with their own version. E.L.F Booster Drops cost under or exactly $11.00.

The next item is one that SMASHBOX had on shelves for quite some time and that would be there primer water, but it doesn’t do all the things that E.L.F has created for their primer water, matte, hydration, glow, clean and fresh and the list goes on. I love this one from E.L.F more then then SMASHBOX because it actually, and I mean actually works! As it dries down it becomes a tacky good matte but not moister sucking primer and trust me, we all know my love for SMASHBOX and how much the brand has had my back and helped me so much within my career but I can’t lie, E.L.F figured something out that SMASHBOX just, well couldn’t and maybe its because the one from SMASHBOX is a primer water and a setting spray from E.L.F it would be only a primer.

The Beauty Shield Collection is an advanced skincare line designed to help protect skin from harmful environmental aggressors powered by antioxidants and broad spectrum UVA and UVB SPF 50 which I do always want to add SPF 50 is about where it stops doing anything for the skin and you’d still have to reapply so if it says SPF 100 there’s nothing past in most cases SPF 30 but companies, can, for some reason get away with putting what they want. The Beauty Shield collection is comprised of seven daily skincare products to help prep, prime, and protect skin against harmful environmental elements, which can weaken the skin’s natural protective barrier, leaving it vulnerable to dryness, sensitivity, and damage.

Launch is set to come out this June.

I’m not sure how I feel about the brand E.L.F even though they have proved themselves as a stand alone company but I find yeah they are made good – and have good coverage for say they foundation high end silk which can be built up and is expensive or icing one layer you get the job done with a not to good for the skin effect I guess but that is just me, maybe I should spend some time getting to know the company a little bit better  ➡️ anyway ➡️ wanna know the product link up and what they do before anyone else?

The ingredients for all of these are amazing for care during the summer or even the winter months – especially living downtown in a city –  where you will have to deal with smog and environmental triggers. I think that this line will do fairly well, I mean for the price points alone something to still remember E.L.F are kinda new to the skin care range and just from the basic hydration line they released they had to redo a couple formulas to get it right. So sometimes some of the drug store or smaller lines have good stuff because you’re not really paying much attention to the name at first just that it’s cheap and gets the job done. Thanks to challenges, YouTubers and social influencers we help little brands like this to grow by doing and showing you in real time that sometimes the cheaper products work the same or better but they are not the first to release the products that they come out with – many of this products can already be found in the market today but you’ll paying a lot more for them.


Oh yeah, and everything is free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and alcohol. Even the most sensitive skin will love this stuff.
