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.

HAUS LABORATORIES BY LADY GAGA | MXTC

OUR HAUS, YOUR RULES – who didn’t see this coming from the launch Fame by Lady Gaga because I am not at all, in fact; took you long enough Gaga, I wish she started with concealers and such but that would not be on brand with her so i get that!! I just open the Canadian PR which is highly different then the USA PR pretty much the same but with a little Canadian twist. This isn’t the first time Gaga has taken the game and shook it up and down and make people think and I can say, it’s almost like Marc Jacobs beauty and Lady Gaga had a baby.

Currently I am not yet allowed to write about the brand as we signed a PDA and I’m not going down that rabbit hole again, ever again! but I urge you to check back next week just to experience the PR kit and the beauty Lady Gaga herself put into it!

When I was young, I never felt beautiful. And as I struggled to find a sense of both inner and outer beauty, I discovered the power of makeup. I remember watching my mother put her makeup on every morning, basking in the glow of her power to put on her bravest face as the hard working woman she was. I then began to experiment with makeup as a way to make my dreams of being as strong as my mother become true. It was then that I invented Lady Gaga. I found the superhero within me by looking in the mirror and seeing who I wanted to be. Sometimes beauty doesn’t come naturally from within. But I’m so grateful that makeup inspired a bravery in me I didn’t know I had. I’ve come to accept that I discovered my beauty by having the ability to invent myself and transform. They said I was weird, but really, I was just Born This Way.

Artis is the definition of luxury and it’s time to break it down.

We partnered with SteamLine Luggage, 111 SKIN and Tracie Martyn to bring you this covetable gift set as the ultimate ode to mom with the most elegant beauty tools and essentials to help her create a graceful, meditative and truly divine experience. But be warned — giving this gift will set the bar high for many Mother’s Days to come.

Artis has not stopped elevating skin brushes and now skin care and all I can say it wow, I suck at opening PR so I can happily say that now even you can experience the elegance for a price – I would like to take a second to say I’m not the brands hooker, saying what they want and doing what they wish, I’m sent PR IN CONSIDERATION of review and IF I enjoy the products it’s not a vending machine i don’t just place an order and they send it to me for free, yes I am paid for my thoughts.

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.

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!

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.

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!

I wish I could say I was gone due to the fact that I was on vacation while, I could lie to you all, it would not feel right and I owe one more to who I was with to see where we stand otherwise you will read one way or another in a coming feature of ‘LIFE 101’ which I know is more or less popular. I’m unsure how much I want to tell from my point of view or the view point of how I am viewed, if that makes sense. Anyway, as I know you will know, this will be done very differently starting with my acceptance of any and all media relation work and brand trips, and so much more! Secondly I’m going to make sure I am a lot more open about where I will be, I love you all so much and none of us has ever pretended not to know the pain, born out of hate, I seems I created something of a safe place for myself and for you! With June around the corner and my place at Art Basel pressing, I thought I could talk more about travel knock outs!

Wouldn’t it be so easy if all our makeup products that we needed were in a one stop case? Ellis Faas had that vision in mind with her makeup and holder. The holder is an ingenious design where you could mix and match your favorite colors or whatever your mood wants. From holding foundation pen to powder compact, blush, eyeshadow, concealer, lipstick and even more. It brings a small view of the future of makeup, 

e06bb0eba45f89897833d305d4ee4b5115abf8e2
It’s very handy.
You can put all your favourite Ellis Faas pistols make up in a silver holder with mirror and a matting powder. Bye make up bags! The visuals that show the massive line up of pistols to that can be bought separately are just beautiful and very smart from a brands stand point. Along with being sent the main component which is the face pistol which comes with two holders, from the success of the launch of the product they launches the veils in full sized SKU’s so I was kindly sent one of those as well. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Sadly my powder came shattered via transit so i cannot comment on the value of the product mentioned but I am able to say it’s very pleasing on the eyes, and many wouldn’t even think to utilize the space

Ellis Faas’ products are made with the most intricate design. Her whole line of makeup all the way to the holder seem to be very organized. Having the ability to put everything you need in a holder that is not only sleek, it is also for easy on the go access as well. Not to say it makes a perfect center piece for any vanity table. Ellis Faas’ holder and makeup are perfect gifts for your loved ones and yourself. It’s a whole set that looks very luxurious and fancy. One of the more enjoyable things, as you twist from the bottom what you desire pops up using a little spring device within, just the final thought to bring such a neat idea to life.

Thanks to my beautiful friend who allowed me to test the mascara, liquid eyeliner and such I can safely say that these are effortless which if you’re in a rush to go to work or just don’t want much with you on travels – you will have good quality that lasts, mascara was applied at 9:00am and wasn’t taken off until almost 1:00am and there was no flaking or smudge. I can’t say that I’m shocked!

Please note this will have a follow up post!

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.
