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!

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!

➡️ 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!

#️⃣ MAKEUPANDTHECITYHOLIDAY!!!

Is anyone else absouloutly loving this cold fall weather – it’s beyond refreshing and so comfy to sleep under a big blanket all nice and warm with a dim apple cinnamon candle lit in a cold room! Lipstick ornaments, advent calendars, glitter everything –  When it comes to holiday makeup collections, most brands are pretty predictable. Unless, of course, that brand is NARS Cosmetics — and this year, the industry rebels didn’t disappoint. The brand recently released a studded holiday collection inspired by the iconic punk fashion of the 1970s, which features an array of new lip colors and playful palettes, as well as some cult classics from the iconic brand. I see you Laguna!

NARS Orgasm Infatuation Palette, is the palette is loaded with the kind of cult classics you would always home that someone would buy for you or that you would buy for yourself, but were always JUST out of your budget. Packing Laguna Bronzer and Orgasm Blush into one set not only makes them slightly more affordable, but also adds a level of convenience for those of us who just want all our face powders in one place. I could say exactly how beautiful the bronzer, blush, and highlighter looked on the model when they sent me this collection to review but I do not think I’d be able to do any justice.

NARS Orgasm Infatuation Palette, $42.00, available at Sephora

NARS Defiant Lip Gloss Coffret, there’s never been a doubt that NARS makes a good lip gloss, but there’s something about this smoky brownish-red color in particular that makes it party, office, and kiss-friendly. So Glisten up with an irresistible, limited-edition trio of cult-favorite Lip Gloss formula steeped in sultry shine. Lush. Longwearing. Fully-loaded luster.

NARS Provocateur Eyeshadow Palette is so beautiful, and is a makeup lover must have, some of the shades within this palette are eye-catching the orange shadow in this palette is what initially grabbed my attention; I’ve been seeing tangerine and rust shades everywhere lately, and I wanted to play around with this shade but my swatch looked more red. So, I added a bit of the deep purple lightly on top and it was so beautiful. Full pigment, completely blendable and lasts forever. With or without a primer. The size of this palette also makes it perfect for a stocking also for travel! The only thing is they are selling out extremely fast of this current shade range.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Some of the shades within this palette seem to stain the eye – so make sure that you have a good makeup remover!

NARS Manic Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set the Vicious color from this set is like a soft pink and a rich red lipstick had a baby. It makes lips look a tinge darker and sexier, and the crayon application is totally dummy-proof. Totally travel friendly, and again the perfect stocking stuffer. They are also iconic NARS products – NARS core products.

NARS High Voltage Highlighting Palette well as much as these highlighters look highly pigmented at first sight, they come off very sheer. I would compare it to a setting powder with a light touch of shimmer. If you do a dusting all over your face for a ‘lit from within’ look, ideally could take a bad situation and make it a lot better. If you want a more obvious highlight, this probably wouldn’t be for you, but if you just want an overall healthy glow, you’ve met your match.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ You can also try laying same shade colors for a more intense highlight, or duh – wet your brush with a setting spray.

I did cover the amazing NARS advent calendar (HOLIDAY GIFTS TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION – PART TWO | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) and those babes are close to selling out or when this goes live they might be but I will include photos below of what you will or would have got within.

NARS was my first professional brand that I saw and fell in love with when I was just becoming interested in the world of beauty and lifestyle – I remember getting my best friend to take me to Toronto for the second time in my entire life to go to, well, Sephora – at the time I didn’t even know what Sephora was. I felt so out of place or like I shouldn’t be there – I remember it so clearly because I was so out of my comfort zone. I bought a duo eyeshadow called Pandora and I think I bought a couple of red bottomed brushes.

Now lived in and living in Toronto and so much time gone by and my career at a point where I walk into any Sephora in North America and most know me by name is so crazy to think back to that little boy who was so scared and out of place.

Wow you made it this far, my hearts still beating and it beats for you – so click that follow button to see what comes next and keep me alive!

NEW LAUNCH ➡️ FRAGRANCE ➡️ YSL La Nuit De L’Homme – Eau Électrique 

So as long as I can remember or since moving to Toronto really I’ve been wearing during the day YSL L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE and at night YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE – they are transition smells meaning they work together – as you change from your work clothes or whatever you can still smell some of the YSL L’HOMME so when you’re ready to go out for dinner, a date or fun night with your friends you spray on YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME and it works in together with older notes while giving you the sexy smell you’d want. 

These two (2) fragrances which go from day to night are amazing and I do not think I know one man who wouldn’t like the YSL HOMME line. Here is just a little information about the two of the fragrances and a little more into the notes of them. 

YSL L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE ➡️ a perfect balance between unrefined and precious, ultra-masculine and elegance, off-the-shelf and luxury. In a sparkling opening, Bergamot and a zest of Cedar wood brings luminosity to the fragrance, sustained with Chinese Ginger. The middle floral and spicy notes contrast with this first note of freshness: the sophisticated and modern masculinity of Violet leaves and Basil flowers, the bite and resonance of White Pepper. Base notes of Sandalwood, Virginia Cedar wood and Haitian Vetiver highlight this charismatic and magnetic fragrance.

YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE ➡️ a story of seduction, intensity and bold sensuality. A darkly handsome man whose irresistible charm and seduction sweep away everything in their path. A fresh oriental fragrance, made of tensions and olfactory clashes. A structure of contrasting forces. A signature rich in differences and dualities. A seduction that lies half-way between restraint and abandon. A fresh Oriental fragrance that rocks the senses: the freshness of Cardamom and the sophistication of Cedar meet the intense sensuality of Coumarin.

Be at the utmost of seduction with this new electrifying eau de toilette for men. Fresh, intense and sensual, this fragrance will be your best weapon throughout the night.

YSL LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU ÉLECTRIQUE ➡️ an uninhibited and intoxicating fragrance. An oriental fougère that forms the bridge between freshness  and sensuality. It opens with a burst of ripe apple accord. Curving into the warm heartbeat of geranium; the senses are heightened. Slowly evolving, revealing itself, sensual – aphrodisiacvanilla rises upward, striking through like an electrical current. A play of contrasts: the first spritz invigorates the senses, while the trail leaves a statement of corporeal sensuality. An olfactive electric shock as intense as the deep blue of its juice.

It comes it sixty (60ML) or one hundred (100ML) which is pretty good for a launch most times a fragrance launches you won’t get anything but one hundred (100ML). 

LA NUIT DE L’HOMME EAU ÉLECTRIQUE  is described as a “wild” fragrance of a “seducer” who “makes the night his territory” and “nobody can resist his charm, at the edge of elegance and freedom.” The fragrance is conceived as a tension between the freshness of a modern fougere composition and a sensual trace of vanilla. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ three (3) noses worked on the composition:

• Juliette Karagueuzoglou, 

• Dominique Ropion  

• Anne Flipo

Citrus notes of bergamot and mandarin combined with green apple form a fresh start. The classic fougere accord made of lavender, geranium and tonka bean, is modernized by the freshness of the opening, as well as orange blossom absolute and aromatic sage in the heart. Woody notes of cedar, cashmere, vetiver and patchouli, and a dose of quality vanilla end at the base.

Which makes it a very sexy frangrance and a good add to the L’HOMME line by YSL – I really loved opening it up – I loved the packaging of the bottles for all of L’HOMME collection.
