Beauty News : L’Orèal Paris x Karl Lagerfeld secret collaboration | MAKEUPxTHECITY

Hi boys and girls, if you’ve followed me for a while you would know that I don’t typically have a posting schedule and for a little now it’s started to bug me, Sunday typically marks the end of the week and Monday marks the start so, Sundays are going to be ‘beauty news’ and when the rest of the schedule is figured out I will let you know, with the growth of my blog I actually am going to be adding a new beauty editor and there will be some very big changes that are actually ready, but I’m just not sure that I am but, lets get into the beauty news!

Having announced earlier this year that Chanel’s former creative director and designer, Karl Lagerfeld, had been working on a secret make-up collection with L’Oréal Paris before his death in February, the cosmetics giant has finally revealed the details of what is set to be the most chic make-up range ever.

L’Oréal confirmed that Lagerfeld illustrated the initial ideas and monochrome packaging, as he did with all of his designs, whilst the brand worked with his team to finalise the products posthumously.

 ➡️ The unexpected collaboration is less surprising than you might think. Lagerfeld infamously drew his signature fashion illustrations using eyeshadow rather than paints or coloured pencils and also launched a capsule make-up collection with Model Co. last year. So far specific products and price points are yet to be revealed, however, it has been confirmed that the range will share Lagerfeld’s pioneering spirit and commitment to celebrating feminine power, with a relentless quest to create the unexpected.

I really think that this is going to be the beauty collaboration of 2019 and I can only imagine how fast it will sell out, launching online on 20th September and globally on the 27th September during Paris Fashion Week nonetheless.

From the wide range of shades to the texture of the products, nothing was left to chance in creating a line that would work for all kinds of women and at different moments of the day, from a subdued, elegant daytime look to more audacious, shimmering hues for nighttime.

The collection is made up of a highly pigmented nine-shade eyeshadow palette, a duo of highlighter for a glowing complexion, an extra black mascara, and a pigmented, ultra-matte eyeliner in black and silvery pink “Metallik.” The “Rouge à Lèvres Color Riche Satin” lipstick features a nourishing, healing formula and is available in six shades with names invoking Karl himself: Kultured, Ironik, Provokative, Karismatic, Kontrasted.

As I said above, if you want this collection be prepared to hit add to basket because it’s going to sell out fast, I asked an old coworker at L’Oréal if they would be sending this out in PR and he wasn’t even sure.

Hey guys.

I’m actually so excited to write this and I’ve been waiting for some time because I’ve been working closely with a couple different departments of L’Oréal and I will say of all of the companies I have had the pleasure of working work L’Oréal takes the cake with dedication – fearless and love for it’s creators.
IF you’ve had the pleasure of working with L’Oréal or L’Oréal luxe
you will understand when I say how amazing of a company they are.


L’Oréal Paris offers a complete range of make-up products, from trendy innovations to makeup bag essentials.

We have the know-how and product performance to give you what you are looking for in your make up. You’ll feel worth it with perfectly defined eyebrows, your ideal shade of lipstick, sophisticated nail polish colours, a flawless face and eyes to steal the show no matter the occasion.

Whether you need your everyday routine or you’re getting ready for a fabulous red-carpet night out, explore our make up range to find your match

Alright, I know, I know what you’re all here for – first I want to talk about makeup from L’Oréal and how much it’s stepped up it’s game – complexion (1) Infallible Colour Correcting Kit vs. MAKE UP FOREVER five (5) Camouflage Cream Palette I truly thought from using MAKE UP FOREVER cream palette that it would be such a winner but it didn’t even come close to L’Oréal and I’m not sure if its because L’Oréal made theirs after so the formula is better and pigmentation is more secure – honestly to compare the price of one (1) too another its really a no brainer, if you want color correction and coverage you would find L’Oréal in my kit over MAKE UP FOREVER in this case.

NEXT ➡️ L’Oréal Infallible PRO-MATTE 24h Foundation I love just as so many other influencers do, the Infallible line from L’Oréal offers so many foundations for so many skin needs, skin types, coverage levels and so much more. L’Oréal is full to medium coverage, but it feels extremely light, In other words, it doesn’t feel cakey on the skin, it is a 24-hour foundation but I will say it doesn’t last 24-hours, but it comes very close.
I apply this foundation with my Beauty Blender because I feel it leaves it smoother and more even on my face, rather than with the typical foundation brush. Another thing I liked a lot was that, with drugstore foundations it’s common that they don’t come in many shades but L’Oréal  has one for almost every skin color – also L’Oréal is one of the only drugstore brands to carry foundations and products for every skin tone.

I put this foundation against Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder as it has amazing matte properties to the product along with many, many other benefits and this is where it became fun too me! I created mini heat wave on two different models and L’Oréal outlasted CT but not by that much : then I created a little caught in the rain moment and L’Oréal beat CT by a long, long, looooooong shot.

What I found, CT claims to be only 18-hour wear that is very untrue, you will be lucky to get even 5-hours. L’Oréal claims to be 24-hour, which I don’t want to say isn’t true because you will get almost 20-hours from this product.

None of the caused breakout when worn overnight but we all know you shouldn’t ever sleep with your makeup on.

PRO TIP ➡️ USING A TESTER APPLY STRIP LINE OF THE FOUNDATION DOWN THE BACK OF YOUR HAND WAIT 60 SECONDS TO SEE IF THE AIR (OXIDIZATION) WILL HAVE AN EFFECT OF THE COLOR PAYOFF AND SHADE AND PICK ONE SHADE LIGHTER.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS IN NO WAY A BASH AT ANY OF THE OTHER BRANDS THAT I PUT AGAIST THE BRAND!

So the best thing about being on a PR list of any kind is you get to test out some products that are new and exclusive but, here comes the misconception in most cases unless we really, really love something then sadly they won’t keep sending it over and over!
Which hey, it’s sent as free advertising in half of the situations – it’s actually quite sneaky of a company if you give it some thought, why not create a certain amount to send to well know influencers a boom, free advertising!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ dailyjocks.com just realised their new underwear for men called cloud nine (9) and lemme just say, they couldn’t have named it any better! Cooling and comfort polyester blend which is durable and will not fade!

Drug store makeup and skin care has been stepping its game up for a very long time, its almost like, what took so long you are all owned by four (4) main players. So I’m going to talk about three (3) amazing face wash and mask set my way for consideration of review and I always use all three, well, nope, yep I use all three (3).

mask2
1) EXFOLIATING AND REFINE – 3 mineral clays + Red Algae
2) COMFORT AND UNIFYING – 3 mineral clays + Charcoal
3) PURAFYING AND MATTE – 3 mineral clays + Eucalyptus

That is the three (3) main groups that they stick within which I would say is typical to branding but these masks are a clay to foam cleansers which makes your skin feel so amazing. Clay-to-Mousse daily cleansers enriched with 3 different clays and enhanced with a nature-sourced ingredient to leave skin feeling fresh and clean.

The 1st range of clay-to-mousse daily cleansers that leave skin feeling clean and fresh. This cleanser is enriched with Kaolin + Montmorillonite + Moroccan clays and Red Algae Extract. Pure-Clay Cleanser Exfoliating & Refining leaves skin with pores looking tighter, and less visible, without over drying the skin.

There is nice playing games with these face washes, the level of science and ingredients beats that of some of the highs brands out there and I never thought in a million years that it would be this way, I think next time we need too grab both and compare the ingredient list because price no longer seems to be that big of a factor. Dun Dunnn Dunnnn.

Not to mention the fact that there is multi-masking so there can be multi-washing, there so perfect to use together, well, that is if you don’t mind buying all three (3) As of now in Canada you cannot buy these sadly but hit subscribe to find out just when and where you can buy them! Infused with 3 clays (Kaolin, Montmorillonite, and Moroccan) and 1 super-ingredient specifically for your skin type. Cleanse to wash impurities every day with our NEW Pure Clay Cleansers and mask twice a week to beautify skin.

Over time harsh environmental factors, such as pollution and debris damage skin leaving complexion dull and tired. So don’t forget how important it is to wash your face day and night especially if you are a makeup wearer.

FOUNDATION FIGHT™ | CK 3-in-1 face makeup | NARS  all day luminous foundation | L’Oréal PRO-MATTE foundation 

In one corner coming in at 30ml is Calvin Klein 3-in-1 foundation and a little disclaimer good luck finding this product I just thought it would be fun to contact a makeup archive and see if they had some cool products they would want to send me that..well…could still be used and I was shocked at what was sent. Almost every shade of when CK tried to launch into the beauty market a little unsuccessful but I don’t see why that’s the case with this foundation it’s absolutely flawless and perfect for all seasons.


The packaging is pretty cool. You guys know that I am a sucker for sleek and sexy packaging, and CK One delivers! The design is modern, minimalistic, and sculptural. Get into the pill shape bottle. The packaging does a great job of being travel-friendly. Not only is the pump concealed by a lid, it also has a spin-lock, so that you won’t accidentally dispense foundation if you happen to lose the lid. The cut-out window on the side of the bottle is a nice touch as well. 

The CK one 3-in-1 face makeup is a hybrid formula designed to reveal your authentic, real beauty, never hiding it. the ck one 3-in-1 face makeup offers a simplified approach to beauty that is designed for all ages, cultures and genders. The science behind the ck one 3-in-1 face makeup is what makes the multi-benefits of this product possible. Industry leading, japanese triple-treated pigment technology creates a natural look on the skin, while still delivering flawless, even coverage. the distinctive formula synthesizes serum, primer and face makeup into one simple, lightweight liquid. Treated pigment technology with amino acid mimics the skin for an effortlessly natural, radiant finish. Advance silicone technology provides long wear, formula integrity, and smooth application. Microspheric powder creates a smooth, creamy texture and the light diffusing properties result in a soft focus effect on skin to minimize the look of wrinkles. 

The CK one 3-in-1 face makeup blends flawlessly into skin, evening out the skin’s tone without the heavy feeling of traditional foundations. a built-in primer provides shine control and long wear for up to 11 hours. a serum, infused with SPF protection and nourishing vitamins, helps prevent against the damaging effects of UV rays and free radicals. Available in eight (8) different shades, each shade of the CK one 3-in-1 face makeup works on a range of three different skin tones.

The foundation truly is beautiful. It is marketed as a liquid, but I find its texture to be somewhere between a liquid and a soft gel. It’s very smooth and glides across the skin, filling pores and fine lines very nicely. I really liked this foundation. I like the fact that it really lives up to its claim of being a second skin. I also like how neutral the undertone is. This really gives flexibility with the shades. Sometimes, foundation can be too yellow or too pink, which poses a problem. This product has a neutral undertone, which allows me to mix in liquid correctors to add in a yellow or pink undertone if I need it. Overall, the foundation held up beautifully for the duration of this job. I didn’t have to do any touchups, not even once also it will not clog your pores which is always nice and always something that I look for. 

IF you do want to search to buy this you beauty you will be able to do so – but just make sure you check out my swatches page to try to color match yourself if buying from eBay or Amazon


DID YOU KNOW ➡️ They actually don’t even like to refer to this product as a foundation due to its unique and truly second skin effect. 

KNOCK OUT 🙅🏻‍♂️


NEXT coming in at 30ml is NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation which for a good two years IF I used foundation I would go to this one during the summer for it’s ability to stay put and keep your skin looking very healthy and well kept. It also has a lot skin loving ingredients which I love!

 It’s full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, this breakthrough formula builds and blends effortlessly with just one drop – the result of exclusive innovation uniquely designed to deliver long-wearing full coverage, weightlessly – I’ve said so much in the past and on my blog that I love that NARS is true to advertising, everything you read you will get from a NARS product.


Advanced flexible polymers move with the skin, providing extraordinary breathability and comfort.

First-to-market treated pigments weightlessly deliver long-wearing, complete coverage without ever masking for perfected, natural-looking skin.

Streamlined packaging with easy-lift cap and a beautiful frosted bottle the packaging is definitely unique and seems it could be on the mans side of the skin. 

They came out with Even Tone Technology designed to instantly neutralize redness and dullness, while working long-term to reduce the appearance of discoloration for more even, uniform skin. So you might be wondering how they do this and really it’s simple gold and green pigments in a perfect 4-to-1 ratio optically manipulate how light reflects off skin’s surface, evening the complexion for instant luminosity. Green pigments negate redness on contact, while gold combats dullness. So they have found a way to add color correctors for ALL skin tones into their foundation and they are the first company to do so. NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation earned one of my highest rating due to its excellent shade range and unique, irritant-free formula that allows for a natural-looking medium to full coverage, yet maintains a near weightless feel on skin.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ NARS has been adding Scarlet Spiderling Root Extract for a long time to their products to help reduce the appearance of discoloration and reveal brighter, more even skin over time. 


L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation comes in at 30ml and is one drug store foundation that I have found myself reaching for to use on clients for photoshoots and for film, the thick matte texture is perfect for full full coverage (although it’s claim is to be medium coverage) with no flash back and it doesn’t really need to be touched up very often. Once you apply it to your skin it’s going to stay exactly there. I have found that this is a stippling brush, fingers or Beautyblender you want to pat this formula into the skin not rub it because I find it is easy to streak across the face. 

This high-quality formula is a standout at the drugstore. The ultralight liquid quickly dries to a believably matte finish and stays that way for at least 10 to 12 hours. I would say if you have dry skin, use a rich moisturizer and primer first and you’ll have all day flawless results. 

I always have found that it’s pretty hard to match yourself perfectly in a drug store like if you’re NW15 at M•A•C you’d typically be 101 with L’Oréal – I know that looking at them all they almost all look as if they are the same shade so if you’re unsure about a shade match make sure to test it out and if testers are not available – inquir about the return policy and buy two of the foundations that you think would be close to you and if it turns out that you have to mix to create your shade well that is one of the drawbacks of buying drugstore makeup but this formula isn’t playing games – it’s on point and also oil-free, I don’t see any claims of not clogging pores but I haven’t had any issues. If you have visible pores you’ll also appreciate how well it does concealing them and creating a very smooth appearance. 


Another great thing about the L’Oréal foundation is it’s color true so it doesn’t really change color as it dries down or oxidizes. 

PRO TIP ➡️ apply a coat of the foundation under eyes, around the nose, chin and a line across the forehead using a basic foundation brush then pat back over with the brush to remove streaks allow to dry down then apply your foundation as you would on top of that for flawless finish and coverage. 

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation is available now at all drugstores
