GEORGETTE KLINGER SKINCARE SINCE 1941 | M x T C

Hey boys and girls, I am personally a very big fan of changing my skin care pretty much when I feel the seasons begin to change. Skin is the largest organ of the body. It consists of three layers of tissues: the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous layer. The epidermis is the paper-thin outer layer of the skin. The outer layer of the epidermis consists of dead cells that are always flaking or washing off. These are replaced by new cells manufactured in the lower portion of the epidermis, which move upward to the outside of the skin. As they do so, the cells harden and die, some people have skin care that works for them but in a lot of cases the skin just gets used to what you are using.

This cycle of cell production and replacement slows as we age. It takes about 28 days for the average, middle-aged adult. As we grow older, this skin cycle slows to about 45-60 days in our 40’s and 50’s. It can further slow to about 60-90 days in our 50’s and 60’s. As this process slows, dead cells accumulate on the surface of skin causing sagging and collapse of structure or what we see as lines, wrinkles, and deeper folds. Bacteria can become trapped causing blemishes and breakouts. Discoloured and irregular cells can also become trapped causing spots, discolouration, and sometimes more serious skin conditions, which is why I find it very important to take care of your skin starting at a good age, and there are available treatments to correct what time has done on the skin but after it would be up to you to keep it up.

Georgette Klinger is a European line that was interested in my feedback so they sent me a couple of item, and in return I was asked to pick whatever products I was interested in and added to the PR list. The prices of the products are on par with what you will be getting, of course the moisturizers and treatments start to become a little bit more expensive but it’s the same with any brand, the difference is the ingredients.

Coconut Cleansing Milk I love using in the morning to take off all the oils and yucky stuff from the night ➡️ not to mention the aroma is so light but smells so good. Purify and deeply clean your skin of impurities — including pollution, dirt, and makeup — with this luxurious cleansing milk, rich in Coconut Oil and Coconut Extracts to prevent drying out or irritating your complexion. Perfect for all skin types, this luscious facial cleanser incorporates anti-inflammatory Grape and Cucumber Extracts to soothe as you wash your face for skin that looks and feels healthy, hydrated, and refreshed.

Vitamin C Complex  I really didn’t think I was going to like just because there has been so much active ingredients with Vitamin C but I truly was pleasantly surprised by this treatment, you should only us it at night time but I enjoy using it in the morning as well just a lot less and only in targeted areas – lighten, tighten and brighten your skin. Formulated with a stable, ultra-effective form of Vitamin C and Kakadu Plum, which boasts the highest source of natural Vitamin C in the world, along with extracts of Mulberry, Licorice Root and Lemon Peel, to help fight and protect against oxidative stress, this potent serum boosts radiance and luminosity and improves skin tone evenness. Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid promotes the absorption of Vitamin C, allowing this powerful anti-aging formulation to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, sun and age spots and acne scars while retaining moisture for more youthful, glowing skin.

” In 1941, Georgette Klinger brought the best of European skincare to Madison Avenue, attracting a vast, devoted, and influential following. Now, we’re celebrating 75 years of innovation and natural beauty.

There is so much about this skin care line that I could just rave about all day! But they have one product that I literally call my secret little weapon and that’s because it is, gone are the days of the night before a big job interview you get that feeling like you have a huge pimple coming and you wake up and sure enough there it is, right on your chin! It is even worse when it’s the night before a date and you get the same feeling, concealer can only do so much! Georgette Klinger created Charcoal Drying Lotion I promise you, if you feel that little tingle, and we all know what I’m talking about, apply this before you go to sleep and wake up do you thing, I will reapply a fresh dot on my existing dot just while I eat my yogurt, check my email, etc and then I shower, when you come out of the show, boom, it’s completely gone ➡️ now if this was a cystic pimple all you’ll have there is redness, no bump, no lump, and concealer can easily cover the redness and you are good to go!

Clear troubled skin at the source with this overnight spot treatment. Made with natural minerals and exfoliating Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), the Charcoal Drying Lotion works fast to unclog pores on your face, jawline, chest, and back. Salicylic Acid begins by dissolving pore-blocking buildup of dead skin cells. Absorbent Activated Charcoal instantly draws out grease, while Zinc Oxide and Sulfur work deep to eliminate impurities and control excess oil. To calm the newly purified pore, cooling Camphor and soothing Calamine treat visible signs of irritation, inflammation, and sensitivity. Clarifying White Willow Bark minimizes redness and tightens the look of pores. Apply this treatment at the first sign of trouble, and you’ll wake up to a calm complexion that looks good as new.

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.

From a young age, Christen Dominique had a strong interest in color. From painting to experimenting with her mother’s makeup, Christen understood the transformative power of cosmetics which led to her passion for makeup artistry. The launch of Dominique Cosmetics is the next chapter for Christen where her childhood dreams of color are realized. The Latte Paletteinspired by her ritual coffee that she shares with her mom and now with her fans, who start their day with her sharing their morning coffees and lifting each other up with positivity on their social channels – is the first of many luxurious unique products to come.

The Rustic Glam Palette and Collection was maybe one of the first that brought my attention to DC COSMETICS and for good reason, boys, and girls – The Rustic Glam palette is a free spirit, wandering beauty who likes to take risks and most importantly is all about good vibes. Whether you’re feeling a neutral smoked out look or a fierce and glam look ➡️ Rustic is there to paint every memorable moment.

Screen Shot 2019-07-31 at 3.56.17 AM

From there I realized that Christen Dominique Cosmetics was a brand that i would want to use in my artistry and that I would want to represent because that is extremely important to me now more so then ever! I would like to thank Foundation PR for adding me to a couple of PR Lists including Christen Dominique who I have heard of course within the beauty industry but I never knew how good it actually was, I just wish there was complexion products such as Foundation, Concealer, Powder, Primer, Blush, Highlighter they just knocked out of the park so we are good there!

The Lemonade Palette was maybe one of the more successful bundle launches for summer of ’19 with the unbelievable palette and the liquid lipsticks that were paid and pick perfectly off the same lemon tree, if you will. This was another one that caught me off guard because other then Jeffree Star Cosmetics we haven’t really seen anything like that so it was very, very needed and if you will, refreshing!

Screen Shot 2019-07-31 at 4.21.15 AM.png

Lemonade is a bright fun punch of pops of color and a lot of glam. Extremely blendable and creamy so you can create everything from fresh soft looks to dramatic eyes for a hot summer night out.

Each shade is smooth and buttery in texture that glides on for intense color payoff. Includes four (4) richly pigmented soft matte shades and six (6) ultra creamy sparkling shades curated for all skin tones, eye color and artistry skills.

To create each shimmer shade in our Lemonade Palette, we used different sizes of pearl particles to create varied textures and shimmer appearances making each palette a unique experience that you’ll discover as soon as you break the surface of the shade with your finger or brush.

➡️ Fresh, Bitten lip like color. Lightweight texture that is non sticky and flexible. Our glosses create a dewy effect that adds fullness to the lips. Sheer to medium coverage that is long lasting. To be worn alone or layered over lipstick.

I think that it is safe to say that DC Cosmetics will only be going up with what I can only hope will be a full line! They only have up to go. up! up! and away! I know that me and all the other fans of the brand will be eagerly watching for this to happen! mind you I personally do not wear eyeshadows or liquid lipsticks but I am still able to appreciate the hard work that goes into creating an original company and can’t wait to see all the coming success for Christen Dominique Cosmetics!!

BORN THIS WAY COLLECTION | TOOFACED | M A K E U P x T H E C I T Y

What’s going on all you sexy boys and girls, so as I start to get back on the grind and fall back into a good work flow I kinda forgot that TooFaced was my first source of advertising made money for my blog, They always as a brand checked up on me, always send me new launches and just stuff that I really don’t need, I love the story of the brand, feels very close to home for myself. I realized when I had the BTW concealer out in a hotel and the person I was with asked me if that had anything to do with Lady Gaga that maybe I thought a educational post was needed, and since they just upped the shade range why not now!?

One thing about the BTW Collection from TooFaced is there is a lot of shades, and undertones so everyone will be able to appreciate the amazing, medium to full, hydrating with hyaluronic acid provides long-lasting, skin-balancing hydration for a smoother, more youthful appearance with no flashback which is something good to consider for the summer months, when we all seem to take so many photos! I am not one to sit back and kick it with a foundation on my face but if you like a undetectable finish then this is for you, lets be real, it is makeup so yes, you will be able to see it unless you take the time to really blend and we have  our tools that work for us, blending brush, Artis brush or damp sponge, what is your poison?

5b10d92cbd330c2829265b7a0783f4e3
SIDE NOTE ➡️ TooFaced partnered with Jackie Ania to create the perfect shade range for everyone under the sun, and those who hide from the sun.

BTW Super Coverage Multi-Use concealer is one of those concealers that really does, do it all. The ultimate multi-use formula for a modern and hydrated photo-ready complexion. Fully loaded pigments provide maximum coverage with an undetectable finish for a look so flawless they’ll think you were born this way.

When I first tried this, i didn’t really like it that much but I didn’t throw it away, I changed shades and it was amazing, I guess the shade ‘snow’ was just to white for myself personally, the formula isn’t ever dry or cake on the skin which is nice but that means it doesn’t self set, so if you’re going to play, make sure that you have something to set your work in place so that you don’t look in the mirror an hour later and be like who the fu…but if you set it, forget it.

Screen Shot 2019-05-22 at 5.14.21 AM
Summer is also one of those times where you should use a primer ➡️ SUMMER HAZE | TOP THREE PRIMERS | M X T C (SPONSORED POST) of course there is a lot of people who will say to you, I don’t use primer, or I forget primer but not setting spray, so I tend to tell those men and woman to get a finishing spray that acts as a primer, so you can spray on your primer, do your base and set it adding to the pore less and even complexion you now have.

➡️ New to the BTW line is the new setting powders which are amazing, and come in three tone shades universal across the board – fair – medium and dark of course! 

I guess in closing I want to remind you all that less is more with makeup, it’s easy to build it up but so hard to take it down, please, don’t be fooled by beauty lights, again, beauty lights the name alone is what they are, we all use beauty lights when filming or on set, or even to take photos now which blur, enhance and fix. If you you do you your makeup correctly you don’t need beauty lights or to constantly check to make sure you look ok. Make up is meant to enhance your beauty and it shouldn’t make you feel worse about yourself or who you are!

SUMMER HAZE | WHY IS DEODORANT SO IMPORTANT..? | M X T C

Hello all you beautiful faces! I’m going to touch base on something you would learn in elementary school and if you really said no to dad when he asked ‘did you put on your deodorant today?’ when we both know…he didn’t then comes home because the kids thought it fun to poke at the easy target! no, no no this is not what happen to me, Hygiene was (is) always important to me! with sumner just around the corner I decided to partner with Vaseline Men to help you understand the different types of deodorant on the market and why it might be right or very wrong for your skin! This also launches my ‘SUMMER HAZE’ category where you can use the drop down menu to find all your summer issues, oh there is one thing, come closer… each issue comes with a with a fix – come on guys you know I wouldn’t leave you hanging!

⏯ PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

I want to start off with something simple the different types of deodorant(s) and basically what it is they do for your body other then have boys or girls bring milkshakes to your yard, still don’t get it? yeah, I’m right there with you guys! A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent or mask (hide) body odor due to bacterial breakdown of perspiration in the armpits groin, and feet.

A subclass of deodorants, called antiperspirants, prevents sweating itself, typically by blocking sweat glands. Antiperspirants are used on a wider range of body parts, at any place where sweat would be inconvenient or problematic for safety or convenience reasons, since unwanted sweating can interfere with vision, comfort, safety, or slipperiness/grip. I also know that it’s a lot to take in, you think that as you hit puberty all you need is to throw on a deodorant but by the time launch rolls around and it’s time for gym you don’t always feel so great about yourself, so as parents it would be a good thing to insure you watch your children or have them watch you apply your deodorant or antiperspirants.

Vaseline-Men-Extra-Strength-Body-Lotion-1600x1080
The human body produces perspiration (sweat) via two types of sweat gland: eccrine sweat glands which cover much of the skin and produce watery odourless sweat, and apocrine sweat glands in the armpits and groin, which produce a more oily “heavy” sweat containing a proportion of waste proteins, fatty acids and carbohydrates, that can be metabolized by bacteria to produce compounds that cause body smells. 

Trust me, I sweat a lot! comes it calms down I’m typically good but I i just happen to leave the house one day and I was with my friend, B, so B and I went past a store and stopped to grab some gum and stuff and on the way out B said hey what about deodorant  and I’m so happy he reminded me because I just happen to grab Vaseline Men Active dry 48h PRODERMA 0% alcohol antiperspirant and I always would just grab a deodorant never thinking that I needed something more, it’s actually funny for two reason one i’ll never be able to replace this since they stopped making it, sadly and also i feel the same way about B, like I just said, I would just grab a deodorant not taking the time to realize that i didn’t want or need a deodorant, and the saddest part is I guess B and Vaseline Men are both discontinued to me.

This is a stock photo of the best antiperspirant


Moving on guys, hey that’s why so many of you stay isn’t it? My heart is always in my writing so shoppers drug mart is doing a massive summer skin box which comes with all the Vaseline Men products you need! including a shower luffa just for men and what it does to the bottoms of feet lets just say, expect about 20min late because you will loose track of time playing with the one you love!
