SELF SETTING | DUPE ALERT | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi boys and girls I typically don’t write from the 24th till the 3rd for the obvious reasons, but since I have so much going on right now, and I don’t at the same time due to reasons in my past blog (GREEK GODDESS COLLECTON | LUNAR BEAUTY MAKEUPANDTHECITY) I have been spending more time in a hospital more then I’d like, but that’s for a ‘LIFE 101’ post and if you’re new here, ‘LIFE 101’ is where I just talk about what’s going on in my life, things that are bothering me etc. trust me, there is a lot to say but the PR and beauty industry keeps sending out and making new products. A lot are wow and some are hard pass, I find for men in makeup that don’t really want the fully beat face – to woman who just want to be in the know.

MAKE UP FOR EVER came out with ➡️ Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer which is truly exactly what we are all asking for, since they came out with the tube HD concealer. I wondered what was keeping them from creating a concealer with a applicator or doe foot, I personally think that a doe foot is a better way to keep bacteria and all that bad stuff off your face. This creamy concealer has medium, buildable coverage, a natural finish, and second-skin feel in a self-setting formula with up to 12-hour, crease-free wear which can be a lot of claims for a concealer but over the years I have found that, MUFE doesn’t print without back up and a lot of testing. You can buy it here for $35.00CAD for 0.17 oz/ 5 ml.

Right off the PR card about the products ➡️ MAKE UP FOR EVER’s iconic Ultra HD technology for flawless, invisible coverage is now available in concealer form. Coated pigments diminish the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and imperfections, and immediately set. The smoothing, hydrating, creamy liquid captures and diffuses light so that skin that appears bright, flawless, and fresh all day.

DUPE ALERT ➡️ NYX HD CONCEALER WAND buy it here for $6.00 also click the link to check out the product and the product facts! Save your coins if you need to, there is almost always a dupe out there and I will now be featuring DUPE ALERT.

A lot of people have the theory that most moden foundations and concealers are all self-setting but that is absouloutly not the case, if it doesn’t say it’s self-setting then you have to set it with a powder and it’s not for the look of powdered skin but for the longevity of the makeup and to make sure that your face doesn’t melt off a hour after you’re done, we create body heat which is not a friend to cream makeup or concealers.

Another really, really great product that is not new per say, but just got a package change is from HOURGLASS which is a little more expensive but if you have oily skin to acne prone skin this would be a game changer for you, hell it works for any skin type, it’s all in the way that you use the product and yes if you didn’t guess it I am talking about Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation.

29immaculate-liquid-powder-foundation-relaunc29h
This foundation has some amazing ingredients which I will highlight and what that ingredient does for skin ➡️ Advanced Cashmere Kaolinite Clay:
Works continuously throughout the day to control oil, while drawing out impurities to keep skin clear ➡️ Phytostem Edelweiss: Provides antioxidants, smooth’s the look of skin, nourishes the complexion, and protects from free radicals ➡️ Oxygenating Solvents: Deliver oxygen to the skin to help clear pores. All ingredients within are vegan also.

You’re able to buy it here for $70.00CAD and you would get 1 oz/ 30 ml which is about the size of a standard luxury foundation.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ drawback of this foundation is that it can only be used with people who don’t tend to have dry patches. If this foundation is applied over dry spots, they will look even worse than they already do. It will make them very noticeable. If you get dry spots and still want to try this foundation, make sure to use a heavy moisturizer before bed to prevent dry patches. The only other thing about this foundation that could be bothersome to some people is that it is very waterproof. Many people’s face washing routine is only using face wash and then rinsing, which doesn’t work with this foundation. Even when primer is worn with this foundation, I find that because it adheres so well to the skin, washing it off can be a little bit difficult.

Don’t forget about my iPhone XR giveaway and the colourpop Christmas PR collection (THIS IS NOT A DREAM | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) and thanks for making it too the end! I hope you have a safe and fun NYE.

NEW PR LIST ➡️ GLOSSIER COSMETICS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY – PART TWO (2)

Morning friends!

➡️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON FOR MORE CONTENT!
PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!

So my MacBook with the damn sensitive touch bar, is well, sensitive to touch (blonde moment) and as I was writing yesterday finishing up my post about Glossier I accidently hit something that submitted my post so what better time to say it was intentional for a part two (2) ALSO if you read my monthly favourites which I’m a total fool for not keepin’ up with that, last night me and my fiancé went too a party and I lost my Juste un Clou bracelet by Cartier yes that is a 10k bracelet so I ordered a new one and it wont be here until the 29th of November – yes I understand that it’s really just a bent nail around your wrist but its what it symbolised too me and why it was so important. Moral of the story is don’t drink – shut up and dance with me!

As I mentioned in part one (1) every year I do five (5) companies to watch in that year, that I believe will be extremely successful ➡️ Five (5) COSMETIC / BEAUTY companies to watch in 2017  and in 2018 Glossier Cosmetics already with massive success will be on the list!

FROM THE COMPANY TO YOU ➡️ Here, you’ll learn a little bit more about our beauty product philosophy. Some background: Glossier Cosmetics was created by a group of beauty editors that have (literally) tried everything out there and know what works. We painstakingly develop the best formulas with real-life usage in mind, and put them in the chicest packaging that won’t cost you half a paycheck. We have created our entire lineup to work together to make you look and feel your best – the only thing you need are your fingertips (or favourite makeup brushes). So even if you’re new to the idea of a beauty regimen, or you’re just someone looking to make a few upgrades, we’re here for that. Think of Glossier’s beauty products as the skincare essentials you need, plus makeup you’ll actually use. Thanks for joining us at makeupandthecity.

⭐ Wowder plus the Wowder Brush ⭐ can the name of this magic powder be anymore clever? wow + powder = wowder, it’s so Glossier – the more I experience the more I love the company, Honestly most powders you know mask skin’s texture with a 2-D effect and sop up oil into a cakey film that settles into fine lines. Wowder isn’t just skin-colored dust, so set your expectations high: it cuts shine, sets makeup, and blurs the appearance of pores. It’s the airiest formula possible, developed right alongside the suspiciously soft, perfectly dense Wowder Brush for targeted application. For any of my set MUA (makeup artist) out there, this will be your best friend on set and in print work, hell, even to take a perfect selfie. Together they leave skin with a glowing matte-not-flat finish – with zero white chalkiness, even under bright flash. In three adaptable shades, with pigment levels high enough to help Wowder go undetected on skin but not affect your skin tone. I am really impressed with how lightweight the powder feels on my face. I usually use the Tarte setting powder but I would have to say that Wowder really is a better fit. I use a really hydrating concealer that needs to be set with powder and it set it instantaneously and it feels like nothings on my face. It also blurred out my oiliness and doesn’t look cakey at all, and that’s a massive plus.

WowderDuo_02accepted

➡️ Diamond Powder Light-reflecting particles that counteract the flat effect of most powders. ➡️ Kaolin Clay Soft and incredibly fine, it absorbs oil but vanishes into skin (instead of sitting and caking on top). ➡️ Vitamin E Gives Wowder its silky, non-drying texture.

hypoallergenic ➡️ dermatologist tested ➡️ talc free ➡️  paraben free ➡️ fragrance free ➡️ vegan and cruelty free.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ you can buy Wowder alone, and the Wowder Brush separately as well but to save a pretty penny, wait, aren’t pennies obsolete now, oh sorry,  you can buy them together in a set.

⭐BOY BROW ⭐all-in-one brow fluffer, filler, and shaper – all brow needs have been considered to create THE brow product: one to thicken, fill in, and groom brows into place. The creamy wax formula is inspired by traditional hair pomade for soft, flexible hold that doesn’t stiffen or flake. If you’re like me also and have light eyebrows but like them to be darker and don’t always have the time to make an appointment to get them tinted this will become your go to product to darken your brow hair.

➡️ Beeswax and Carnauba Wax Natural waxes that hold hairs in place without stiffness. ➡️ Oleic Acid An emollient derived from olive oil that nourishes and moisturizes. ➡️ Lecithin A natural fatty substance that adds a silky, smooth texture and a subtle sheen. ➡️ Atelocollagen A collagen derivative that helps condition and strengthen the hair fiber.

AWARD WINNER ➡️ TEEN VOUGE 2015 Game Changers and ALLURE Best of Beauty 2016 – Congratulations too the Glossier team!

I’ve been sent a lot of request too join PR lists for Christmas and  the new year (2018) anyone who is in this industry and gets PR samples, it would seem that now is the time of the year that they reach out, as I just moved with my fiancé to our new house and I’m just putting together my office and studio – I’m not really accepting a lot of the offers and I wont lie – Glossier Cosmetics is a company that I haven’t heard of to, too much but the pitch was too good to say no, to sum it up in the intro when I typically just tell you what’s new in my life and such I’ll just say, just as I did before my top Five (5) COSMETIC / BEAUTY companies to watch in 2017  I will be doing again for 2018 and, Glossier cosmetics will be on it.

I was sent pretty much the entire brands product list in every shade and set also please let me know if you’d like me to makeup PR videos just showing the products and explaining and kind of show you how I use them on set because I do not apply makeup too myself (lipstick, mascara, eyeshadow, blush, eyeliner or nail polish) products reviewed are 100% tested on real models on real set calls. Shout out too Glossier Cosmetics for reaching out and if any other brands would like too reach out or send PR please e-mail Kevin who is my PA (personal assistant) at ➡️kevinmakeupandthecity@gmail.com

COMPLEXTION PRODUCTS FROM GLOSSIER COSMETICS ➡️

⭐Stretch Concealer⭐ let me just say, wow, I was completely blown away from this product, most concealers on the market will dry down and move around, or go cakey or crack and dry, into a different shade then you bought (oxidized with the air, before you buy any concealer put a larch swatch on the back of your hand and give sixty (60) seconds to see turn color) Stretch Concealer is a new type of concealer with elastic micro waxes that move with your face instead of caking on top of it, and nourishing oils that give a dewy, glowing finish.

It’s buildable formula covers everything from dark circles to redness and blemishes. In five (5) shades developed to enhance, brighten, and most importantly – completely disappear into the widest range of skin tones. What makes Stretch special? Beeswax and Microcrystalline Wax ➡️ Give concealer a super elastic consistency which allows it to move with your expressions, not stiffen and cake. Avocado & Jojoba Oil ➡️ Nourish skin, prevent water loss, and give a natural dewy finish. Cocoa Butter ➡️A natural fat full of the good stuff that promotes skin elasticity and suppleness. Adaptable Mineral Pigments ➡️ Merge seamlessly with the widest range of skin tones for natural-looking coverage.

hypoallergenic ➡️ dermatologist-tested ➡️ ophthalmologist tested ➡️  non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) ➡️  paraben free ➡️  fragrance free and cruelty free.

GLOSSIERCONCEALERPROMO

PRO TIP ➡️ to create a matte finish dust a small amount of translucent powder over the area Stretch Concealer was applied using a small fluffy eyeshadow blending brush, got you covered, literally.

⭐Perfecting Skin Tint⭐ More skin, less makeup. In the land between bare skin and makeup, makeup exists the imperceptible wash of color that is our Perfecting Skin Tint. What does it do? Evens out discoloration and leaves your face looking toned, smooth, and dewy. The breathable, ultra thin formula auto-fits to skin, making application as simple as throwing on moisturizer. What won’t it do? Hide your freckles, spackle your pores, or erase any other evidence that you are, in fact, a real human being. You are able to build this up to medium coverage in a snap, just allow the Skin Tint to dry and then go back over in areas you would like to see more coverage! With Diamond Powder ➡️ Gives a brightening and blurring effect, while minimizing the appearance of pores. Glycerin ➡️ Helps skin attract and retain moisture. Polymer X ➡️ Our secret weapon; gives an ever-so-slight lifted look to the face.

hypoallergenic ➡️ dermatologist tested ➡️  appropriate for all skin types ➡️ non-settling ➡️ non-creasing ➡️  non-poring ➡️  non-irritating ➡️  paraben free ➡️ alcohol free ➡️ fragrance free ➡️ cruelty free and vegan.
