GREEK GODDESS COLLECTON | LUNAR BEAUTY MAKEUPANDTHECITY

What’s going on guys – before we move forward I just want to just ask you for an effortless favour, my world, my life, my reason for being alive, my mom suffered from two small heart attacks and then a massive one that sent her to the hospital where she has remain because of it being the holidays and everyone wishes they could be with their families and I don’t blame them or hold on to darkness within my heart towards anything or anyone except for myself – my point is what needs to be done to see it will fix her heart, can’t be done until the New Year and that’s just a big what if and if that doesn’t do the trick it will be open heart surgery and one is more invasive then the other that’s for sure, I hate that for me it’s always lesson learned but too late. I understand heaven wouldn’t ever have me due to the fact that I am all about me, but if you can just pray that she recovers and is okay because a world without my mom is a world unbearable and yes I am saying that because she is mom but also because she is an example of what we are doing right and what is right. I have always said that we are strong along but this time I ask you for this simple favor. The dust is just beginning to settle.

Alright so let’s get right into Manny MUA and his line Lunar Beauty, I mean I’m not going to talk about the drama surrounding Manny because there is a lot but I am in no way apart of it and I was I guess added to his PR or if this was sent to me just from a firm is unclear I did contact them and it was sent for “my consideration” I will say that I did follow Manny and then I stopped following him with all the drama but I did recently click that subscribe button because there is two sides to every damn story. Manny has used his platform to challenge gender stereotypes and further the makeup-as-self-expression movement, all while delivering some intensely flawless makeup inspiration to both genders along the way.

Manny MUA has been working on his holiday collection for Lunar Beauty since early January, and it’s obvious how much work he has put into the quality of the products and packaging. The new collection is a Holiday Collection, and I really can’t deny how obsessed I am with the packaging – one draw back is that the eyeshadow palette has a mega matte background and understand why, to make the focus on Medusa as she turns you tp stone, but, this black matte holds everything it’s very similar to NARS matte black packaging they are known for, so, if this is for your kit – which I’m not sure is the idea behind it, be prepared to loose the fight on keeping this one clean. Personally after I was done with it and testing it out on a couple friends who were off, and even playing around on myself which I should do more often I might add – I just stood it up on my shelf, white in the back and peeking out from the black and I have a feeling that I’m not the only one who will do this within your beauty room or for me the office.

The Greek Goddess colour palette comes in black and gold packaging with a giant Medusa head on the front of the palette. Inside, there is a mirror and 15 eyeshadows with Manny describing them as a colour story on what a Greek goddess would wear on her eyes. The colour palette retails for $48.00US and is the same formula as Life’s a Drag, which means it is cruelty-free. Other then the single blue shade it really is just a basic neutral palette, but would you expect less from Manny? Or with his image being shook should he have made more of a jaw dropping concept – we do have to remember the time frame that Manny MUA starting the production to when he had his life exposed for the world.

Unfortunately, the highlighter palette and lip collection (released at the same time) are limited editions because they are only for the holiday season. BUT, Manny did say that he will be releasing lip products permanently for Lunar Beauty in 2019. On the bright side, he hasn’t decided whether to keep the eyeshadow palette as part of the permanent collection. The packing used for the lip capsules really shows off the hard work Manny MUA has put into the holiday collection for Lunar Beauty. There is a floating diamond on the lid of every lip product, which we have never seen before from a beauty brand. The applicators have sharp edges, making it easy to apply with no lip-liner needed.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ the lipsticks smell like cupcake batter. Lunar Beauty is killing it at the moment from what I can see ecstatically.  Also Lunar Beauty listen with the mirror, it is not a small little mirror inside, it’s a quality mirror, and has strength. ALSO the shade Zaya is a lot darker then you see in the bottle which is why I’m adding to notes if you’re going to buy online.  

LI[P
So, it would assume that people are more talking about the packaging more so then the quality of the products and eyeshadows – with this sad they truly are such good quality better quality then some very big brands, the lippies are very nice with rich pigments, and if you know Greek Mythology from the names to the corresponding shades he did a very, very good job. Highlighter Palette is absouloutly without a doubt and fit for all skin tones which is nice to see, not chalky, and little to no fall out. Some can also be used as a blush topper as well which is becoming more and more trendy.

➡️ Don’t forget that my iPhone XR (BLACK) giveaway ends very soon, also includes a colourpop holiday collection and all you have to do is follow me on INSTAGRAM and boom, that is it, all followers will be involved but new followers are added in three times via a live giveaway.

BEAUTY NEWS / LIFE 101 / WINTER SKIN YOU’D KILL FOR / IPHONE XR GIVEAWAY (CANADA)| MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi beautiful people –

#️⃣ MAKEUPANDTHECITYHOLIDAY!!!

What’s going on guys and girls, I’m sure that you’ve heard that one of the biggest beauty brands in the word (COVERGIRL) just became the largest brand to take the leap and go completely cruelty free, moving forward that is – I couldn’t see them getting rid of and replacing all existing products around the world and redoing planograms with the news. What is your thoughts about ‘Cruelty Free’ and Vegan? Is that something that you’re thinking about when you purchase makeup, doesn’t it almost seem like it’s trendy to be cruelty free or something like they don’t care about the animals they only care about the bottom line, and I wonder exactly what at this point, on that day, made them go hey lets go cruelty free – yeah it’s amazing but why now? and why not a long time ago.
CoverGirl
You know what they say, better late then never. Cruelty free international presented COVERGIRL with the internationally recognized gold standard for cruelty free designation.  No other certification program has the rigor that seeks to completely eliminate animal testing from a brand’s supply chain – it certifies that no COVERGIRL products or ingredients are tested on animals, either by COVERGIRL or its suppliers.

Do you guys believe in PNR? (PAID NEGATIVE REVIEWS) I can tell you first hand that there is, and I have been offered and truthfully when I was starting out with this did accept a PNR because I was childish and inconsiderate – but I have tried to fix the wrongs of my past and now I’ve been honest with the company who I said some not so nice things about and found out that they are better then the company who paid me to give a not so nice review and hype them, I’m sure if you look at my blog you can see in more recent posts just who I am talking about but truthfully that’s what stopped me from writing for so long, it just was a stupid thing and it not only jeopardized my integrity, but it influenced you, my friends and family too choose something based off of a lie. I’m very sorry – I’ve come to learn from my mistakes.

I’ve come to find the best skin care for me! It would be Knock Out by Tarte, MDNA skin The Serum and the Maracuja Gold Oil from Tarte and I will tell you why, when winter or colder weather comes around I like a little more protection for my skin, I’m one of those people who were like ‘oh oil for my skin, that doesn’t seem like a good idea for me’ I just thought since I have oily skin it would clog my pores like a lot of us but it is actually non-acnegenic which is a huge, huuuuuge plus for me! It’s a lightweight oil that hydrates the skin and balances acne prone skin which I didn’t know till I opened a 4 month package. My bad. I will also add that if you are not using this for a flawless makeup base I would only use it at night and I would remember that a little goes a long way when it cones to any face oils.

Also – I have been mixing it in with my Tarte stick foundation while I’m doing by skin care, you know just under the eyes, around the nose and chin followed by adding adding some of the not so new NARS powder just repackaged so everyone thinks its new – in the shade flesh. It gives you the skin that you wish you had while under the makeup when you take it off you actually start to feel a lot more comfortable without makeup which is a huge plus because flaws are beauty too me! No one is perfect. If we all embraced our flaws then, oh know the beauty community would be no more! but we would be more empowered and comfortable!

Wow, Did anyone else hear about Victoria’s Secret backlash due to saying they wouldn’t cast transgender or plus-size models? “Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy,” he told the publication. “It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is.” I am not going to even ask if you feel this is right because plain and simple it’s disgusting and wrong. We just need to keep the faith and make the worse seem better. I guess I will just post this video if Gigi Gorgeous who truly said it correctly.

So tell me, do you think this is fair? or right in any way at all? I am also going to be giving away a new iPhone XR in the same shade I have in yellow! my favourite color of course! Why, Yellow can represent anything. Sadness, Happiness anything you want it too be. Just like me, I can be whatever you’d like! This giveaway is only for Canada as I’m trying to grow my Canadian audience but I will include a Catrice 24h HD foundation vault for my international family, and the new tarteist™ PRO REMIX Amazonian clay palette which is you know there is a long, long waitlist for. It sold out within seconds – funny they did a brighter eyeshadow palette the same time James Charles x Morphe came out. (finishes: 🎨 matte 🎨 luster 🎨 metallic 🎨 duo chrome 🎨 shimmer 🎨 floating glitter)
