MILK MAKEUP ESSENTIALS + TIPS | M X T C

Milk Makeup, what took you so long to come into my life? I can’t believe that it took me so long to finally know my skin care, and the best part about it is even if i don’t keep it up for a week, it just stays frozen in time it would seem. Not to mention using to much of a product, come on, we are all guilty of this – all that concealer we pack of we only need half of that. Stick with me, I’ll fix those lies. GLOSSIER and MILK MAKEUP are very similar don’t get the two mixed up, you would think that they are owned by the same company, almost a year ago to date I was added to Glossier PR, Milk Makeup is all self paid for. Ok  boys, girls, let’s get this done.

First off I’m going to talk about MILK Makeup and their FLEX line, which is complexion products, MILK has a FLEX Concealer which was a complete game changer for me and i think if you can get past the slightly high price point then I believe you will fall in love just as hard as I did – I mentioned above that I spent my own money on MILK Makeup that is not completely true they did a send out of new shades that they added and for some reason I happen to get one of the sparkly bags, but that was the only thing(s) I didn’t pay for.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I use NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer the same tip as I use the FLEX Concealer, the different textures add something special, I’m not saying in any way you can’t do this tip for any brand. This product is also : VEGAN, CRUELTY-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE and TALC-FREE.

Flexibility – Flex seamlessly becomes one with your skin — without caking or creasing — thanks to a combo of tiny bendable spheres and elastic marshmallow root powder (the ingredient that gives the candy its squishy abilities)

Full Coverage – The long-wear, medium-to-full coverage formula can take on anything you’ve got — from under eyes to over blemishes.

Hydration – Infused with blue lotus to moisturize and chamomile to calm skin. Do something good for your face.

One of MILK Makeups bestsellers is there ability to be portable and for flights, hotels etc, these are killer, I bought this set around Christmas and took time to see if it was actually something I would like, use, recommend to my friends and family, I love these, actually all of them, I love the idea of a wash in a stick especially when they, you know, get it right, solid, microbead-free cleanser formulated with matcha green tea to clean, exfoliate, and purify skin. MILK Makeup actually cares about our environment and what we put on our bodies.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Do your homework click here to find out what Microbeads are in cosmetic products and why they cause issues to our waters.

Stay Hydrated Set
One of my favourites is the Watermelon Brightening face serum, Swiss garden cress sprout extract helps brighten by reducing the appearance of dark spots for a more even skin tone. Watermelon fruit extract hydrates and delivers an immediate blast of hydration that lasts all day, while vitamins A, C, and E help fight against free-radicals. The formula goes directly from stick to skin, meaning no wasted product on your palms. Matrixyl, a biomimetic peptide complex, helps skin appear smoother by improving its elasticity.

The Cooling Water stick is so amazing for after you apply your serum, I just use it in certain spots and areas of my face like under my eyes, around my nose and in areas that tend to get a bit more dry, it’s also a blessing for the winter. It’s also infused with caffeine to support micro-circulation, giving skin an energized, refreshed glow. Formulated with natural seawater to calm and hydrate irritated skin, It’s also oil-free.

Lastly included in the set is the first ever solid matcha toner, Purifies pores after cleansing with ingredients like kombucha and witch hazel, while matcha green tea detoxifies and protects. They also have a organic cactus elixir which helps my skin especially if I’ve been really busy or working in the sun.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ The talked about set above in no longer in stock and I’m not sure if it will be back in stock you can ask by emailing hello@milkmakeup.com also a trick for working out put your cooling water in the freezer for 15 minutes then the fridge (don’t want a cooling water popsicle) and after your work out quickly use your Macha Solid Toner to refresh and then your cold Cooling water to lock the pores shut giving yourself time wash your face! Nothing feels more amazing then ice cold Cooling water from MILK!

EXCLUSIVE : HAUS LABORATORIES PRESS DINNER IN VANCOUVER | M X T C

I was nothing but honoured to be invited to the Canadian launch of HAUS LABORATORIES by Lady Gaga press dinner in Vancouver which I told myself I would be at no matter what, I am so happy that i went and if it goes like that for all press dinners maybe I would find myself attending more, moving on, Lady Gaga’s beauty line went on pre-sale July 15th and will be on sale in September 17 – FLARE Magazine and I questioned will it even be sold in Canada, since this was a press dinner in Canada that should answer the question. (yes)

Lady Gaga is finally putting her take on beauty in our hands, all our hands, because it will be available not only on hauslabs.com but on Amazon: “Just like with my music, I wanted everyone to have access to it.”

I did have one of the best times at this dinner, It’s one of those times where you’re having so much fun that you forget just what you’re there for, and you tune in to the information you should be listening to, crap! Gaga is into the makeup part of the equation for sure. She reviewed formulas, named products, picked components and brought in her friend and makeup artist Sarah Tanno as global artistry director for the brand, which everyone who knows Gaga’s makeup day to day would not be shocked by this at all.

On the print out and video clogged iPad in front of us ➡️ While it’s uncommon for new beauty brands to be unveiled in July, Le Bourgeois said it is common for new concepts to launch on Prime Day. Amazon has executed successful Prime Day launches in categories like books and video games before, he said. Plus, for something like Haus Laboratories, it allows time to make more products if preorders exceed expectations.

Update ➡️ Amazon Prime Day is here, and that means Haus Laboratories has officially arrived. It includes nine different duos (either two lip liners, two glosses, or two Glam Attack shimmer powders, in a range of shades), and also six different three-piece sets. Each three-piece set — or “haus” — includes an RIP Lip Liner, a Le Riot Gloss, and a Glam Attack.

Lady Gaga sees your face-tuned beauty ideals, and she wants to smash them. Lately I’ve been feeling the same way also the promise of something better can only get you  so far, I’ve always said that makeup isn’t there to fix or change anything but to enhance the beauty you already have but its true, even I sometimes follow suite and won’t leave the house without insuring all redness is gone. 

I am excited to see all the PR Packages be sent out and all the youtubers and bloggers to start really ripping the brand apart as they do! it happens with each and every brand – there was address fill out form but I’m really not 100% that Gaga will even bother sending out because of the pre-sale.

From a young age, Christen Dominique had a strong interest in color. From painting to experimenting with her mother’s makeup, Christen understood the transformative power of cosmetics which led to her passion for makeup artistry. The launch of Dominique Cosmetics is the next chapter for Christen where her childhood dreams of color are realized. The Latte Paletteinspired by her ritual coffee that she shares with her mom and now with her fans, who start their day with her sharing their morning coffees and lifting each other up with positivity on their social channels – is the first of many luxurious unique products to come.

The Rustic Glam Palette and Collection was maybe one of the first that brought my attention to DC COSMETICS and for good reason, boys, and girls – The Rustic Glam palette is a free spirit, wandering beauty who likes to take risks and most importantly is all about good vibes. Whether you’re feeling a neutral smoked out look or a fierce and glam look ➡️ Rustic is there to paint every memorable moment.

Screen Shot 2019-07-31 at 3.56.17 AM

From there I realized that Christen Dominique Cosmetics was a brand that i would want to use in my artistry and that I would want to represent because that is extremely important to me now more so then ever! I would like to thank Foundation PR for adding me to a couple of PR Lists including Christen Dominique who I have heard of course within the beauty industry but I never knew how good it actually was, I just wish there was complexion products such as Foundation, Concealer, Powder, Primer, Blush, Highlighter they just knocked out of the park so we are good there!

The Lemonade Palette was maybe one of the more successful bundle launches for summer of ’19 with the unbelievable palette and the liquid lipsticks that were paid and pick perfectly off the same lemon tree, if you will. This was another one that caught me off guard because other then Jeffree Star Cosmetics we haven’t really seen anything like that so it was very, very needed and if you will, refreshing!

Screen Shot 2019-07-31 at 4.21.15 AM.png

Lemonade is a bright fun punch of pops of color and a lot of glam. Extremely blendable and creamy so you can create everything from fresh soft looks to dramatic eyes for a hot summer night out.

Each shade is smooth and buttery in texture that glides on for intense color payoff. Includes four (4) richly pigmented soft matte shades and six (6) ultra creamy sparkling shades curated for all skin tones, eye color and artistry skills.

To create each shimmer shade in our Lemonade Palette, we used different sizes of pearl particles to create varied textures and shimmer appearances making each palette a unique experience that you’ll discover as soon as you break the surface of the shade with your finger or brush.

➡️ Fresh, Bitten lip like color. Lightweight texture that is non sticky and flexible. Our glosses create a dewy effect that adds fullness to the lips. Sheer to medium coverage that is long lasting. To be worn alone or layered over lipstick.

I think that it is safe to say that DC Cosmetics will only be going up with what I can only hope will be a full line! They only have up to go. up! up! and away! I know that me and all the other fans of the brand will be eagerly watching for this to happen! mind you I personally do not wear eyeshadows or liquid lipsticks but I am still able to appreciate the hard work that goes into creating an original company and can’t wait to see all the coming success for Christen Dominique Cosmetics!!

HAUS LABORATORIES BY LADY GAGA | MXTC

OUR HAUS, YOUR RULES – who didn’t see this coming from the launch Fame by Lady Gaga because I am not at all, in fact; took you long enough Gaga, I wish she started with concealers and such but that would not be on brand with her so i get that!! I just open the Canadian PR which is highly different then the USA PR pretty much the same but with a little Canadian twist. This isn’t the first time Gaga has taken the game and shook it up and down and make people think and I can say, it’s almost like Marc Jacobs beauty and Lady Gaga had a baby.

Currently I am not yet allowed to write about the brand as we signed a PDA and I’m not going down that rabbit hole again, ever again! but I urge you to check back next week just to experience the PR kit and the beauty Lady Gaga herself put into it!

When I was young, I never felt beautiful. And as I struggled to find a sense of both inner and outer beauty, I discovered the power of makeup. I remember watching my mother put her makeup on every morning, basking in the glow of her power to put on her bravest face as the hard working woman she was. I then began to experiment with makeup as a way to make my dreams of being as strong as my mother become true. It was then that I invented Lady Gaga. I found the superhero within me by looking in the mirror and seeing who I wanted to be. Sometimes beauty doesn’t come naturally from within. But I’m so grateful that makeup inspired a bravery in me I didn’t know I had. I’ve come to accept that I discovered my beauty by having the ability to invent myself and transform. They said I was weird, but really, I was just Born This Way.

You typically should aim to have  makeup be a filter on your face not a mask! The summer is typically time to play down the winters makeup game, less is more and applications typically go from barely there to seamless. If you want to know how to enhance the appearance of beauty this summer then keep reading!

CoverFX has really changed up the makeup game from the derma brand I used to sell as a manager at a BeautyBoutique on king street in Toronto to now breaking the internet with the launch of their new (3) primers for the skin, but one, has them all beat, try keeping it in stock! One of these primers the ‘gripping primer’ which is exactly that, it almost turns the skin too a sheet of tacky glass so once makeup is applied onto of it, it isn’t going anywhere – with a $50.00 price tag (same a the below listed Smashbox) it isn’t found to be cheap, CoverFX was a brand born out of demand or at least they were, their pigmented mixtures and heavy coverage was created to help the worst of skin conditions and issues to feel beautiful, now they are a top luxury brand pulling from Shoppers to enter the world of Sephora and so on.

Screen Shot 2019-05-20 at 5.49.04 AM
CoverFX has always been clinically tested, vegan and cruelty free product does not contain: paragons, fragrance, mineral oil, talc, gluten, sulfates, or phthalates which is something that in 2019 we want for our skin where the luxury makeup lines really do not feel they have anything to change once great, always great so they say.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ For the most flawless application, apply your primer first to the high points of the face – bridge of the nose, top of the cheek bones, center of the forehead – and blend outwards. 

When it comes to primers
– there is the number one primer that takes the cake and that would be Smashbox original PhotoFinish primer, since creating the original primer they have come out with so many more primers under the sun, which have all kinds of ‘capabilities’ but do they really need so many avenues of the already great PhotoFinish. This is a silicone base primer and now comes vegan which is nice – so you better believe it will be a smooth, pore free application helping to prolong the life of your base even in hot summer!

s2172211-main-zoom
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Photo Finish Primers got a makeover! It’s the same formula you’ve always loved, just with a fresh new look. Now it’s easier than ever to find a primer that’s perfect for your skin needs.

In a consumer study on 103 women after 1 week of use:
•    93% saw blurred imperfections
•    93% saw smoother skin
•    91% saw minimized pores & lines
•    95% said it helped makeup go on flawlessly
•    94% said it worked well with their skin tone
•    94% agreed foundation blended more easily

Lastly since both above are $50.00+ I thought it only fair to throw in a E.L.F primer mist which I actually do love for the summer, not only do you spray this on and allow to dry as your primer, you can actually set the skin with it also adding too the longevity and pore minimization, Cut oil and ban shine with this water-based primer mist that preps skin for a smooth, matte finish. Enriched with purified water, cucumber, and vitamins B and E to refresh and hydrate skin.

Truthfully it’s almost like Smashbox Primer Water, well it’s exactly like that actually but for under $10.00 and you can get it anywhere that sells E.L.F which is almost everywhere now a days.

Screen Shot 2019-05-20 at 5.59.49 AM
 ➡️ MXTC subscriber has this to say after picking this up from me talking about it in a previous post “Bought this, skeptical about how a mist would work as a primer but elf has never steered me wrong. Well it works very very well! It’s the only primer I use and it keeps me matte for at least 6 hours. Also, because it’s a mist, not a gel or cream or heavy product like other oil control primers , my makeup no longer looks cakey. This makes my least favorite of all my foundations last for hours, so when I’ve got a quick trip I can still look nice without needing to dip into my high end products. It’s a miracle spray. This picture is 6 hours in, no blotting! Thanks Kam”

SUMMER HAZE | WHY IS DEODORANT SO IMPORTANT..? | M X T C

Hello all you beautiful faces! I’m going to touch base on something you would learn in elementary school and if you really said no to dad when he asked ‘did you put on your deodorant today?’ when we both know…he didn’t then comes home because the kids thought it fun to poke at the easy target! no, no no this is not what happen to me, Hygiene was (is) always important to me! with sumner just around the corner I decided to partner with Vaseline Men to help you understand the different types of deodorant on the market and why it might be right or very wrong for your skin! This also launches my ‘SUMMER HAZE’ category where you can use the drop down menu to find all your summer issues, oh there is one thing, come closer… each issue comes with a with a fix – come on guys you know I wouldn’t leave you hanging!

I want to start off with something simple the different types of deodorant(s) and basically what it is they do for your body other then have boys or girls bring milkshakes to your yard, still don’t get it? yeah, I’m right there with you guys! A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent or mask (hide) body odor due to bacterial breakdown of perspiration in the armpits groin, and feet.

A subclass of deodorants, called antiperspirants, prevents sweating itself, typically by blocking sweat glands. Antiperspirants are used on a wider range of body parts, at any place where sweat would be inconvenient or problematic for safety or convenience reasons, since unwanted sweating can interfere with vision, comfort, safety, or slipperiness/grip. I also know that it’s a lot to take in, you think that as you hit puberty all you need is to throw on a deodorant but by the time launch rolls around and it’s time for gym you don’t always feel so great about yourself, so as parents it would be a good thing to insure you watch your children or have them watch you apply your deodorant or antiperspirants.

Vaseline-Men-Extra-Strength-Body-Lotion-1600x1080
The human body produces perspiration (sweat) via two types of sweat gland: eccrine sweat glands which cover much of the skin and produce watery odourless sweat, and apocrine sweat glands in the armpits and groin, which produce a more oily “heavy” sweat containing a proportion of waste proteins, fatty acids and carbohydrates, that can be metabolized by bacteria to produce compounds that cause body smells. 

Trust me, I sweat a lot! comes it calms down I’m typically good but I i just happen to leave the house one day and I was with my friend, B, so B and I went past a store and stopped to grab some gum and stuff and on the way out B said hey what about deodorant  and I’m so happy he reminded me because I just happen to grab Vaseline Men Active dry 48h PRODERMA 0% alcohol antiperspirant and I always would just grab a deodorant never thinking that I needed something more, it’s actually funny for two reason one i’ll never be able to replace this since they stopped making it, sadly and also i feel the same way about B, like I just said, I would just grab a deodorant not taking the time to realize that i didn’t want or need a deodorant, and the saddest part is I guess B and Vaseline Men are both discontinued to me.

This is a stock photo of the best antiperspirant


Moving on guys, hey that’s why so many of you stay isn’t it? My heart is always in my writing so shoppers drug mart is doing a massive summer skin box which comes with all the Vaseline Men products you need! including a shower luffa just for men and what it does to the bottoms of feet lets just say, expect about 20min late because you will loose track of time playing with the one you love!

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.
