ADVERTISING FIRM | NARS ORGASM AND SUMMER LIGHTS | MXTC

Good Morning, afternoon or evening – I hope you all are enjoying your mid – week, I know I most certainly am, before I get going and talk to you all about what’s up and what you want to know, I’m not a bad person, I don’t think anyone is a bad person I believe things happen that change our perspective and tilt our mind, I was hurt lately by someone who, meant something to me, lived a life time in two weeks and now it’s time to bring him to his knees, sorry you asked for what’s to come and the most delicious part of it all, it only will take three phone calls, and I won’t tell a single lie. I’m going today to talk to my second advertising firm to pitch my project – I’m so excited for this, I know at this point you’d be like what are you talking about? and that’s a good thing to be honest! You will know when I need you to know! But I do owe the city of Toronto a massive thank you, also the United States.

NARS has become kind of a controversial brand since they became un-cruelty free sadly, to sell within China you have to be able to test on animals which is sad, since the pull NARS has not tested on a single animal just wanted to reach fans on a global scale which said be true isn’t such a bad thing! Just look who their parent company is, couldn’t have come to a shock to many when the news dropped.

There is two collections I open this morning so I decided to play around with the colors, and give you my opinion of spring and summer with NARS and the smart choices they made under your nose! The NARS Orgasm collection is ecstatically please, the shade is universally flattering across the board so to have a lot options there when it comes to formula is just smart. For them to lead with the OG Naomi Campbell kind of speaks to the legacy of Orgasm and NARS did something very smart revamping the same shade into a new collection rather then pour out another meh collection!

“Glide it. Gloss it. Go for it. Turn on the iconic, universally flattering glow with four new ways to Orgasm. Sultry, sensational Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint stimulates lips with a surge of hydration and an irresistible afterglow. Orgasm Liquid Highlighter arouses eyes and cheeks with dewy, illuminating finish. Glow even bigger with oversized Orgasm Blush and ultra-sensorial Endless Orgasm Palette, designed for maximum experimentation. Whatever your pleasure, Orgasm from every angle.”

My top products from the NARS AFTER GLOW COLLECTION would be the Endless Orgasm Palette, NARS is well known for their shades, and well known for their artistry, the shades are curated together beautifully in a way that I haven’t seen NARS packing before – the shadows are like butter and blend together wonderfully, I love the pop of dusty orange within the palette, I also would be foolish to not mention the palette is for eyes, face and lips which comes to be with a lot of NARS lately.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ You can buy or check out all of the new NARS mentioned right here!

The NARS lip balm in shade orgasm is actually perfect if you’re pale as I am, and you kind of start to loose that lip shade you can lightly tap this over top bringing your lips back to lip and keeping them protected and healthy at the same time.

The summer lights palette from NARS is a personal favourite when they add in contour and or some highlight with your eyeshadows and they never fail when it comes to the summer, if you’re seating or go swimming they fit perfect in your bag if you need to touch up, I they always have been transfer and waterproof.

“Turn on the lights. Turn on the night. Summer gets a smoldering glow with covetable, limited-edition highlighting face palettes, adding instant warmth and radiance to eyes and cheeks. Featuring four eyeshadows in cult-classic matte and shimmering finishes, and complementary bronzer and highlighter to heighten and brighten.”

DAILYJOCKS – JOIN THE UNDERWEAR CLUB | MXTC

Hi boys and girls, if you are a man or have a man in your life then you would know that a men need nice underwear for the same reason woman need a bar, for comfort, support, don’t want anything popping out. I’ve also noticed that I personally feel a lot more attractive when I am in a nice pair of comfy but good looking undies. I have talked about DailyJocks before and how they have a massive collection in every style for everyone. The DailyJocks Monthly Underwear Club is the best way to discover men’s underwear. Every month, we choose from a curated selection of underwear from international designer brands and send you a pair in your size and preferred style. It’s like a monthly surprise of the best underwear around.

I have been with Daily Jocks for two years now and my underwear collection has grown and grown and I have found myself trying different styles out that I would typically try, especially if it happens to be a mystery item in my box.

➡️ The Underwear Club is $20.00US per month but they have a promo where if you sign up your first month is only 10$ (no not a commission for me, just a deal for you) and what a deal it is since 1 pair of underwear is valued up to $40.00

UC-frontpage-feb19
It’s so easy to do it, and I love, love, love how they do the layout ➡️ 
you choose if you want, briefs, jockstrap, boxer briefs or random! Then you get to choose another style that you would like from the same categories (I really recommend trying random for one choice since, it will introduce you to new undies you wouldn’t think you like and trust me, your friend will thank you for the support!) then you choose your size which I’m pretty sure we all know our underwear size! (you even get your waist sized to inches in that helps)  Simple no? I think so!

Not to mention the fact that you can also buy single pairs of underwear on the site, also work out clothes, swim wear, even clothing. If you are looking for that little something extra in your wardrobe? If it’s shirts, shorts, socks, or even underwear, you can find something a bit more stand-out at DailyJocks. For those athlete types, we’ve got all-star colour palettes to set you apart from the other buffs in the gym. The sports apparel is designed with functionality in mind without compromising on comfort.

#️⃣ MAKEUPANDTHECITYHOLIDAY!!!

Hi beautiful – how are you guys doin? I hope you all had a nice Friday night and you guys were safe and smart! and have some amazing weekend plans! I went out last night with some friends from high school and it’s so amazing to see how much their lives have changed – my one friends just had her second child and I thought too myself wow that seems absolutely crazy! But you know what, it really isn’t sometimes I forget that I am 27 years old and when my parents were younger then me they had a full house, three kids who they loved and took care of, it’s just so crazy to think sometimes how different things are from back then till now. It’s like penny who? What is heck is a penny! I’ve always said no matter what, time will always keep pushing us forward until one day we ask ourselves where did the time go?

skinbase
Moving on
too my UK favourite brand illimasqua – they are so amazing and they’re all about makeup for your alter ego but what they would be famous for would be there Skin Base foundation which is a company staple item, I don’t think it will ever go bye-bye  but more recently they all the top artists and makeup artists have been using their primer Veils – Which comes in ➡️ Hydra Veil ➡️ Matte Veil ➡️ Beyond Veil and a little bit more recently is the Beyond Powder – Which is recognized on a global scale for its ability to blind you with shine but also it’s extremely different texture, hence ‘Beyond Powder’ they also come in a variety of shades so no matter your skin tone you shouldn’t have any issue finding what works for yourself.

veils
Beyond Veil is an exhilarating partnership between two of Illamasqua’s iconic products: the intensely moisturising Hydra Veil and the metallic, illuminating Beyond Powder. The new unique, light-weight gel formula instantly rehydrates skin to give a natural, glowing finish where skin appears illuminated from within.
Formulated with multi-active ingredients, gardenia florida fruit extract and sodium hyaluronate help skin to retain a youthful look whilst haematococcus pluvais extract and vitamin C help to improve skin elasticity and brightness. I cannot say enough good things about this Beyond Veil its absouloutly what your skin and beauty routine needs, the iridescence to the formula is just so pretty.

Part hydrator, part primer, Hydra Veil instantly hydrates and smooth’s skin through a self-levelling, futuristic clear gel. Microalgae, Vitamin C and B3 work together to help maintain skins hydration levels, creating a healthy looking, balanced finish. Plant extracts also provide a calming and refreshing feeling, leaving skin fully prepped to apply your chosen foundation.

An oil control primer, Matte Veil preps the skin to create the perfect matte base for make-up application. It’s mattifying cream-gel formula absorbs excess oil whilst retaining the skin`s natural moisture levels, providing a silky, soft finish. Enhancing make-up longevity, Matte Veil also controls shine throughout the day and into the evening, keeping skin feeling healthy and balanced ➡️ this primer truly keeps the oil away so much so that I even laid down Matte Veil and then a face-oil and tried to mix them and no matter what way or how face I mixed the oil wouldn’t mix with the product or it encased it its on little tomb of some kind.

beyondpowder
Last thing I want to talk about because I am so happy about this and I have been saying since I was introduced to the company years ago is they need a liquid version of concealer for under the eyes and to conceal any redness on your face but just like Skin Base foundation is that full skin like coverage and finally they have the Skin Base concealer Pen with a cooling metal tip to further help with tired morning eyes or bags – it feels amazing, the formula is so beyond amazing! With Vitamin E, a powerful anti-oxidant that will effectively help to fight against free radicals, including the ones caused by UV light. This concealer, containing pro-vitamin B5, will help the moisture balance of the skin, allowing it to become softer, smoother and more elastic.

HOLIDAY GIFTS TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi beauty babes,

Sorry I’ve not been posting as much, work has been, well, overwhelming – it’s one of those be carful what cha wish for situations because I wanted this job so badly so I shouldn’t complain with the workload.

I won’t talk my head off to much for you guys this time – but I have a lot to say in the coming posts and we will address a lot!

Enjoy.

#️⃣ MAKEUPANDTHECITYHOLIDAY

Ok – so I wanted to start off with a couple of PR items that have been piling up for a little while now, so this comes from Tom Ford and it’s my number one (1) gift idea and it is the Duo Fucking Fabulous treat your giftee like the queen she is with this iconic gift set from Tom Ford. Complete with both the spicy Fucking Fabulous perfume and its matching bright red lipstick, this set works for your friends at the top of both the naughty and the nice lists.

Get your hands on it only at TomFord.com

EXPLICIT. EXCLUSIVE. FABULOUS.

Moving on to number two (2) is Sephora Favorites Holiday Perfume Sampler which is amazing if you are the type of man or woman who doesn’t really know what type of scent works with your body chemistry then this is absolutely perfect, buying a perfume gift set is a sure bet if you know your loved one’s favorite fragrance. If you don’t know the preferred scent, you’re in luck. This sweet set will allow her or him, we don’t judge here, to try all of the Sephora favorites before you buy. Even better, once they lands on their signature scent, she can scoop it up for no additional charge with the included Sephora voucher.

This is the perfect gift available at Sephora and Sephora.com

Number three (3) would have to be Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Mini Macaron Set – Becca was the brand that really started it all with the highlighter craze with champagne pop and holiday time is the perfect time to shine, and these Mini Macarons by Becca provide the perfect glow. This set includes four different shades of the Shimmering Skin Perfector. The size of these beauties is perfect for using them as stocking stuffers, also.

Head over to Sephora to grab a set before they are gone!

Four (4) goes too Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer let’s face it, we tend to loose that beautiful natural tan when the holidays start to come around and this bronzer is perfect for warming up your complexion with ease. Too Faced’s rich chocolate bronzer is addictive, and not just because its fragrance mimics everyone’s favorite dessert. Enriched with cocoa powder and bronzing pigments, the vegan-friendly bronzer applies in the perfect matte hue to contour features and add some color.

Check out VICHY.COM

To purchase click the link in the side bar!

I like for my blog to not be only for woman but beauty is for all, so number five (5) is a sweet luxury three (3) Piece Shaving Set and the best part about it is it’s one of the best razors a man can use on his face, take it from me the best blades is one (1) or two (2) and you won’t have any face irritation. Razors don’t typically look like luxury beauty tools until you house them in this sleek metal stand. For the product organization diva who needs a proper place for everything, or the boyfriend who always leaves his shaving supplies all over the sink, this classy gift is as functional as it is pretty for him or her.

DYNAMIC DUOS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi beautiful,

⬅️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

So, well summer coming to an ending finally and my type of weather rolls in such as, fall and winter I’ve devoted time to include a some new series within MAKEUPANDTHECITY, the first one being ‘dynamic duos’ so two products that marry together really well, because let’s face it, makeup can be a tad bit touchy, I mean you find the perfect foundation then you add a concealer that doesn’t work properly with the other product, so it starts to ball off or it completely removes the previous step once applied.

Believe it or not this is a common makeup mishap and it takes time to marry the correct items and since moving and well, all the other secrets that will come out, I’ve been added to many many more pr lists as I’ve actually started to work with a company that helps me to get my personal name out there and my blog. Within this series there will be high end and also drug store items stent to me for review.

Today’s DYNAMIC DUOS ➡️ TOM FORD foundation plus concealer and PRETTY VULGAR detox and chill lava water foundation primer(this primer is new, and will be in stores September 10/18)but you can’t check it out on PRETTY VULGARS website as of now!

TOM FORD FOUNDATION PLUS CONCEALER ➡️ A full-coverage, waterproof foundation that also functions as an effective concealer to hide noticeable imperfections.

A flawless complexion is essential to the TOM FORD face. TOM FORD’s first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections—from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, and water while maintaining an even complexion.

For me and for the five (5) mix of men and woman I gave this to try (they did know know the brand, finish or type of makeup only that it was a foundation) all kinda said the same thing that it was a nice application, it somewhat hide pores and imperfections but overall did what you would assume a foundation to do until a couple of hours it began to split and become a little caked where the skin wanted to start to produce oil, being a waterproof formula it was hard for the oils to cut through the foundation – which you’d think wouldn’t be an issue since oil is a good way to take waterproof makeup off therefore it would be able to cut through the makeup and sit on top. By the end of the day two (2) our of three (3) noticed that it became very caked on the face and offered a minimal coverage, three of them notice it settling in fine lines, laugh lines, and one (1) of the five (5) used an oil-sheet and it completely removed that patch of foundation.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ results came out pretty much the same during three days and the foundation did not cause any breakouts to oily/acne prone skin!

PRETTY VULGAR detox and chill LAVA water primer ➡️ Reap the many benefits of our Detox and Chill lava water foundation primer by applying the unique charcoal formula on to your skin and watch the color transform into a sheer veil of colorless perfection as it is absorbed. This exotic primer will not only increase the wear time of your makeup, but will provide you with smooth, supple and hydrated skin with its gel like texture that transforms into a cooling burst of antioxidant-rich water beads. The formula also contains blurring and charcoal powders to promote oil absorption & detoxified skin. Overall appearance and condition of your skin will improve due to the high concentration of purified volcanic water enriched with essential minerals obtained from the incredibly lush ecosystem of the Jeju Islands.

So just from reading the description above wouldn’t pairing the two fix all of the issues that we had with the stand alone TOM FORD foundation, giving them the samples jars with the DETOX AND CHILL and TOM FORD foundation over three days and here’s what I found, all five (5) saw an immediate improvement in their skin after applying the primer,

SIDE NOTE ➡️ some would get out of the shower and apply face cream followed by DETOX AND CHILL and some would wait till they were ready to start makeup application or in just tee zone.

The primer made a huge difference, and I know what you’re going to say, that’s what primers are supposed to do but I tried this with three (3) other primers and one (1) of my five (5) had the YSL blur primer and found that they had to be careful with application due to the foundation would start to ball off the skin and it wouldn’t leave an even base.

Everyone had a very similar experience with TOM FORD and PRETTY VULGAR it just melts into the skin and works with the ingredients very well, any problems we faced with the foundation seemed to be taken care of just in the description of DETOX and CHILL so these two products marry very well together and I hope they never get a divorce!

+BEST and -WORST products from TOM FORD | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

What’s up MAKEUPANDTHECITY

⬅️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

Lots has happen since I took my break from writing, for example I was able to get myself onto so many more PR lists!

Today I’m going to talk about the best and worst of Tom Ford makeup and skin care. This will become a little series on my blog that I’ll do weekly, +BEST and -WORST and I am pretty excited to start off with Tom Ford as they recently sent me a large bag full or face and body products with me to come!

Tom Ford PR package

The best products so far that I’ve been sent are, number one (1) would have to be by far the older Traceless Foundation with SPF fifteen (15) I absolutely love the way the bottle feels in your hand, and how it’s got the old school Tom Ford look.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I believe that they are going to discontinue this product once they sell through as they have the Traceless Perfecting foundation with SPF fifteen (15) also with the modern packaging and sized dispenser.

The coverage is a little more medium, definitely isn’t full coverage but it can get there with the use of concealer. It’s for all skin types but isn’t the best if you have oily skin but don’t worry, there is a saving grace. This foundation features the skin-nourishing Tom Ford infused complex. This foundation features micronized pigments to achieve seamless and undetectable coverage, while the Infusing Complex nurtures the skin and helps support natural cellular vitality. The foundation offers sheer to medium coverage with a luminous finish.

Price : $87.00US

Next would have to be the Concealing pen which is the number one (1) concealer for under the eyes and creating a cut contour! It’s designed with an unique applicator, the Tom Ford concealing pen delivers an undetectable finish as it camouflages under-eye circles, areas of uneven skin tone, and redness.

If you’re looking for a kick ass concealer that can match up to the price. This is the concealer for you!

Price : $54.00US

Full coverage waterproof ‘concealer’ foundation the reason that I have concealer in quotes is because I still find that you have to use a concealer when you use this product but with that said it is one of the best for oily skin types, it’s not going anywhere, a flawless complexion is essential to the Tom Ford face. Tom Ford’s first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections—from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, and water while maintaining an even complexion.

Price : $104.00(US)

Check back for part two (2) tomorrow!
