You can access the line in multiple ways: If you’re flying United Polaris Business Class, expect a dope kit that includes exclusive-to-United products like a hydrating lip balm, a lightweight and soothing face cream, a moisturizing hand cream, and a toner-drenched facial cleansing cloth. (United Premium Plus and Premium Transcon customers receive a variation of this amenity kit) The Lounges and United Clubs with showers will also be stocked with Sunday Riley products including hand cream, body wash, and even shampoo and conditioner.

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.

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!

Charlotte-Tilbury-x-complexion-collection-x-rubric

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!

WHAT DOES YOUR SKIN SAY ABOUT YOU AND YOUR HEALTH | RECANTATION | M X T C

What’s going on boys and girls – I’ve had it with some brands, I really need to press that just because products are sent to me or I am paid to review and advertise something does not mean I will go and say lies about the product, I have to say, I give skin care and some makeup items a good two weeks, before I write a review. With a recent paid review (SERUM C | M X T C) I didn’t give it that long because I figured it’s just a suspended vitamin c, treatment strength, serum. I just have to say that, I should have gave it the two weeks because I ended up having a massive reaction to the product, with using Serum C I cut out all my skin care and used just a basic moisturizer with my eye products – I got the worst burns on my forehead, cheek and chin and no it was not a break out or anything like that, I thought that at first and I understand that so treatments like this can cause the skin to become ‘worse’ before it gets better, the worst part about it, is I get a damn press release which is information in extreme details and it didn’t say anything about a warning, it’s not the vitamin c it’s how it is suspended that makes it kind of dangerous for the skin without being micro needled  please google it if you don’t understand what I am talking about, the worst part about it when I showed pictures to the brand, and talked about what happen they just didn’t care, and they were not shocked. Did I mention Serum C comes with a $200.00 price tag, I’ve learned to understand different signs from my body using my skin that something isn’t right, inside and out, you should also.

There are 3 things people will first notice about you, eyebrows, skin and teeth, with out a doubt someone will make a impression about you based on those 3 things especially in the judgment world we live in today – your skin is the most noticeable part of your body. And it can play a major role in telling you about your health. Rashes, acne (spots), bruising, and more can all indicate potential health problems you may want to look into.

I know this 1 will be nothing new to you but stress, when you’re under emotional stress, whether it’s from a job or another life situation, your body reacts physically. If you’ve noticed breakouts on your skin but don’t believe it’s due to your diet or age, then it may be stress-related. Take a step back to find out what is causing the stress in your life, you have to try to calm down and cut the stress out because in most cases people will start to treat it like active acne throwing benzoyl peroxide and all kinds of chemicals thinking it will help the situation which typically causes irritation, loss of hydration and extra sebum creation and in return causes your skin to fighting back and it becoming worse which in return just makes you more stressed about your appearance.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ This is really important to remember, in most cases acne and irritation from stress is large, red, and 99.9% of the time very sore, you shouldn’t try to pop it but if you do you will find out that, it typically will not pop. As fast as it came typically over night is as fast as it will start to settle down and tone down, in as little as three days it will be almost completely gone, Try putting some Witch Hazel and Vitamin E cream on it or take Vitamin A orally, for no more than 3 days. For more facts about Vitamin A click here.

Water helps your body sustain normal functions. When you’re not hydrated, your skin will show it. Your skin might become dry and look dull; you won’t have the glow you’d normally have if you kept yourself hydrated. While dull skin might not seem like the worst thing, being dehydrated is terrible for your body. The amount of water you should be drinking each day varies per person, but you should generally aim for around 64 ounces daily. I truly cannot stress just how important it is for your body to be hydrated, I don’t drink pop and only drink real juices and it’s not like I’m punishing myself, it’s because I just don’t like pop or overly fake sweet drinks. Next time stick with water, your teeth will thank you also.

HYDRATION
Any kind of rash, hives, or red skin could mean you’re having some kind of allergic reaction. It may not be as dangerous as anaphylaxis (which often results in difficulty breathing, swollen eyes, and potentially deadly health problems), but it still isn’t something that should be taken lightly. If you’re taking a new antibiotic, make sure to check around your body and look for any sign of hives or rash that could mean you’re allergic to the drug or said ingredient. The same thing is to be said for some active ingredients in some skin care can interfere with medication or make you ill without even knowing it when it is absorbed into the skin.  If you notice anything, stop taking it and talk to your doctor or contact the company for more information about an ingredient as they have to disclose any and all information.

Another thing to look out for and I actually did have this happen to me, there is a massive difference between being pale and being almost white, if you notice you skin a little on the white, semi grey side, it would be wise to talk to your doctor and get a blood work panel done to determine if your anemic. There are different types of anemia and treatable with some vitamins. Make sure you pay attention to what your body is telling you.

➡️ There are so much more I could talk about, fungal infections, STD’s, menopause, or even liver disease but I think that’s enough to take in for today.

BY TERRY PALETTE FACTORY | M x T C

My first impulse is to write good morning but I can do that because this is a globally viewed blog, If there is one thing to know about my writing process is I wake up, do what I have to do (go for a run, pick up coffee, feed my fish) and then I write, it’s anywhere from 4am – 5am and I’m done by the first ray of sun kisses the night good bye, I guess I could say, good day, anyways, off topic, how are you? today I’m going to be talking about BY TERRY and their new Palette Factory, and if you don’t know much about BY TERRY well by the end of this post I hope you learn something of one of the worlds first luxury brands of makeup still around to date. There is a lot some iconic work of the creator of BY TERRY, Terry de Gunzburg still used by rival brands to date when she was employed by them in 1992, fun fact in 1992 I was 2 years old.

BY TERRY was a massive influence in the beauty industry then and now, in fact she got it so right that not much has changed within the branding or the ingredients of course the brand would evolve with the times, every great brand doesIn 1985, Terry was hired by Yves Saint Laurent to develop the brand’s cosmetic line. In 1992 she created Touché Éclat, the iconic brush-on concealer/highlighter that is often referred to as “8 hours of sleep in a tube” which is still a big best-seller for the brand. “From YSL, I learned the essence of how to anticipate women’s needs.” said Ms.de Gunzburg.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ De Gunzburg founded her label, By Terry, in 1998, while she was still the creative director of YSL Beauté.

There hasn’t been many new launches from BY TERRY over the years but one is a killer under eye product, and no it’s not the eye brightener but I do think they marry really well together, for 7ml of product it costs $90.00US the Terrybly Densiliss Concealer, this potion comes with a price tag but for under your eyes it’s a massive game changer, its more than a full coverage concealer its, a full coverage treatment. I had to throw in my favourite product from BY TERRY.

2781177
Now lets talk about the palette factory launching online and in select Sephora’s ➡️ you can choose from 1, 3, 4 or 8 inserts ranging in costs from $79.00 all the way too $495.00 – I know that is quite a jump eh but it’s a luxury brand, any A-list celebrity or celebrity makeup artist will have BY TERRY in their makeup kit.

I choose the 8 pan palette, in front of you or online via the BY TERRY website you should have a empty palette so its time to pick what you want, you can choose your shades, colors, if you want matte, shimmer you even have the choice of pattern if you want marble, half and half or trio (1 pan with 2 shades pressed inside)  whatever you want,  you’re creating your own BY TERRY custom palette – You can literally if you did this in store create your perfect shade of powder foundation by mixing three shades together in marble so when all those shade mix together you have your ideal shade. I know BY TERRY isn’t the first company to do this, and I am sure it won’t be the last but the way that the company approached this is so smart, there is so many colors, base shades, finishes, and possibilities.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ Terry has been called the Steve Jobs of makeup. It might sound a slightly strange thing to say but much like Steve Jobs, she has created sophisticated, luxurious products which quickly become absolutely essential to their users.

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.

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.

JUMP INTO SPRING WITH THESE MUST HAVE PRODUCTS! | M X T C

Hey there boys and girls, how goes it? clocks have went forwards so we are that much closes to summer for all of you who enjoy summer but before we get to summer we first have too go through spring! I don’t mind spring so much, but I am not a summer person which, but, I have a July birthday so I’m told that should make me enjoy summer, not 100% sure where these people are doing their research but I will go with it. There are so many products that I could recommend for spring 2019! In this post you will see such brands as ➡️ Recipe for men, La Prairie, BeautyBlender, The Body Shop, Too Faced,  SMASHBOX, so many brands are killing it and it’s wonderful to see.

Recipe for men has an amazing moisturizer with the a hint of bronze that is enough to make a difference but not a crazy self tanner or something that looks fake, the brand actually just sent me almost their full product line up, super nice of them so I will be touching base on the brand in the future!

➡️ It is a hint of color for fresh and healthy looking skin.
This lightweight bronze cream evens skin tone while imparting a natural glow with just enough coverage to enhance your complexion, of course you’d want to bring it down the neck a bit but this is a cream not a makeup. It does have extract of African pepper energizes overtired skin exposed to shaving, pollution and stress. Hydrogenated jojoba and provitamin B5 provide anti-irritating and moisturizing action, this is not going to tan your skin, but it will make for a instant glow effect.

Too Faced actually was one of the first brands to believe in MXTC and offered me a paid 5 year advertisement placement (with scheduled changes) also it was one of my first PR lists I was ever added to with the ad placement but I don’t really talk about the brand that much because I don’t want people to think that I am pushing the brand but I have come to realize that, they will still pay me every 3 months for a years worth of ad space regardless, so something for spring to really get your hands on would be the Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer which really, if you have a couple of shades it really could be all you’d need for your base as you prepare for spring and summer skin.

img_1079
Too Faced also has the semi-annual sale starting soon! up to 75% off, click the photo in the side bar to be directed!

The formula is oil-free, non-comedogenic formula ➡️ can be used to conceal, contour, highlight, and retouch ➡️ weightless and hydrating so skin is never dry or cakey ➡️ long wearing for 12 hours ➡️ photo-friendly, no flashback ➡️vegan and curtly-free! I don’t think that we could really ask for anything better, it also comes in a shade for all skin and under tones!

In the past I have talked about The Body Shop ➡️ COLD WEATHER FAVOURITES | MAKEUPANDTHECITY which is funny because the product I was speaking about and how I got interested in the brand was from RIO RELATIONS in NYC and I’m talking about going from cold to spring because it’s The Body Shop Vitamin C glowing skin line, this time what I am talking about is their cleanser with mild exfoliation daily cleanser, right from the get go, your skin is radiant, glowing and looks more healthy. The antioxidant properties of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health so there would be a reason why a lot of brands make millions off that simple vitamin that your were told to take as a child (and you should still take a daily vitamin) give this cleanser a try and you won’t be sorry.

img_1081
SIDE NOTE ➡️ The Body Shop cleanser also works well with cleansing tools and Clarisonic alike!

Next I would have to say for perfect skin that will bring you back to winter is White Caviar Crème Extraordinaire from the house of La Prairie – I really just use this cream as a finishing cream or in areas where I know I feel a little bit more dry, I know, I know it’s $1000.00 and you feel I’m abusing how you use it! but the effects and the smell of this skin care line alone is amazing, It’s a lavish cream infused with Lumidose, the extraordinary molecule of light. It helps skin reach new levels of luminosity and evenness ➡️ measurable in two weeks, visible in four, extraordinary in eight. I do have wonderful news! La Prairie has launched travel size skin care of their coveted creams and potions and the PR box was so cute, I literally thought that they were sending new concept jars of what new packaging would look like till I read the card – prices were not released but I assume they will launch with my previous mention ➡️ LA PRAIRIE | NEW PRODUCTS | BRAND TRIP(S) and more | M X T C either way, when I know you better believe you, will know!

1ef12b3b-2a56-4896-b891-5a675b0e5425
Now I know BeautyBlender Bounce was a terrible launch! but at least they addressed the issue and fixed it!
A lot of brands would just ignore it till they think its out of our minds but they did a press release, and a consumer apology and made it better for all skin tones. There is no denying that the Bounce foundation with the new BeautyBlender is some beautiful witch craft, you really see how you get to control coverage with this product, you can take it there or keep it bare! it can even be used as a targeted area, like on the chin, around the nose, a little on the forehead and go! it a lot of cases you don’t really need powder because it dries so matte!

I’m going to make this two parts because if you remember my Chromebook challenge its almost up so I will have my final thoughts and talk to you a little bit about how it went and if I’m going to give up my MacBook for it.

LA PRAIRIE | NEW PRODUCTS | BRAND TRIP(S) and more | M X T C

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening so much is happening right now if my daily life and in my career. For one in June I will be going to Art Basel in Swaziland as a guest for La Prairie, which I’m sure we all know who La Prairie is by now! Especially if you’re involved in the beauty community! to even be asked is unbelievably a step in the right direction. I did have to sign a NDA just as you would with any brand trip, I have been asked before but I take my 9-5 job very seriously – and the truth of the matter is if I had a chance to go to Cuba or Art Basel, I would choose Switzerland. The truth is also that it plays well into my job at Universal.

With the talk of La Prairie I will talk about some new products that will be launching in the next couple of months and yeah I would say that I am the first to even be speaking about it so any photos will have my new logo added so that people know where it came from.

There are three products to come from La Prairie too come and they are a fusion of makeup that meets skin care which is all that La Prairie comes out with ➡️ Skin Caviar powder and Skin Caviar Loose Powder enhance the Skin Caviar complexion offer, Skin Caviar creations are perfectly matched to offer bespoke blending for complexion perfection.

Skin Caviar is the perfect conclusion to the ultimate beauty ritual – the first loose powder infused with caviar extract. A sublime fusion of caviar science and color artistry. The claim of this loose powder is that it will set the makeup, keep you looking youthful all day, natural and completely shine free.

The Skin Caviar pressed powder goes beyond mere makeup, and the brush line finally built to work with the Caviar makeup line. Science or Art? I guess it’s hard to tell with La Prairie. They do not have samples of these products to send out at this time but when they do I will touch base – this is all information from their press release.
