Good morning makeupandthecity


I did have a little falling out with M·A·C cosmetics if you’ve read my previous post, I have since brought up the issue that happen too me at M·A·C head office in Toronto and the situation has been taken care of – which makes me feel a little bit better! Since M·A·C did start in Toronto in 1984 and began in a friends kitchen, I like the idea of working with a company that is home grown and became a massive company by working hard and creating a good team!

The PR sent out for the M·A·C x ROBERT LEE MORRIS was so beauty and kind of made me fall in love with M·A·C cosmetics again, when I first started applying makeup it was ➡️ M·A·C pro long wear concealer and ➡️ M·A·C studio fix powder.

Timeless yet astonishingly contemporaryRobert Lee Morris crafts fine jewellery that eludes categorization, existing at the boundaries between fashion and sculpture. Now, Morris adapts his sensuously organic style for a limited-edition collection for M·A·C, featuring a lineup of well-loved products reimagined and resculpted with golden and matte black packaging. Makeup takes on new, ultra-luxurious forms in Morris’s hands – primordial, futuristic, fantastical.

This collection has Mattene Lipstick’s in six (6) shades which are super hydrating and extremely long lasting pigment, it also come with beautifully packaged Pressed Pro Long Wear Powder in three (3) shades, and new Powder Blush which is limited edition.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ ROBERT LEE MORRIS is a famous jewelry designer who I had the pleasure of working with this past spring!

Robert also repackaged two of M·A·C most loved brushes (135 Large Flat Powder Brush / 168SES Large Angled Contour Brush) along with coming out with a brush roll with four (4) brushes included and a very unique handle and design (184SE Fan Brush / 222SE Tapered Blending Brush / 204SE Lash Brush / 229SE Mini Synthetic Brush) there is also a small pocket or purse mirror which I thought was a cute little touch – I absouloutly love the look and the feel of this collection, and the vision is very easily seen.

The compact has an antique gold finish and the inside features an extra lid flapped attached to an oval mirror. I do wish that the compact was made out of metal (everything is plastic) but it is still very eye-catching and collector-worthy. Promising a 12-hour wear, the Pro Longwear Powder is finely-milled and nicely pigmented. Although not super creamy and soft, the powder provides some pretty impressive coverage. The formulation is blurring and matte and even after a full day of wear, there is minimal creasing or caking – as I said I love this partnership between M·A·C x ROBERT LEE MORRIS it’s very beautiful and stunning and you can see exactly what they wanted from this collection!

SUMMER PROOF SKIN ➡️ TARTE | RAINFOREST OF THE SEA™ water-base foundation and concealer 

So yooou know when a brand comes out with a collection (05/19/17) and they intend for the concealer and the foundation to be paired together, now, wait – I know what you’re thinking right now “isn’t that every time a brand makes a foundation and concealer?” And well yes you’d be right most of the time it doesn’t work out that way, then comes in TARTE RAINFOREST OF THE SEA™ a foundation and concealer that completely compliment the skin together. Better together, go figure. 

Not to mention going a little further and coming out with almost a full range of amazing double ended brushes (see MARCH FAVOURITES) and it’s the same with the bottles on both of the products the beautiful chrome burnt gold purple fusion. They also came out with twenty one (21) colours for every skin tone, complexion and need. Even sitting here with so many products around me as I decided what I wanted to write about – the colours of the bottles with the frosted glass are just completely intoxicating with beauty.

TARTE RAINFOREST OF THE SEA™ water base foundation comes in twenty one (21) shades as I mentioned and comes in a really unique frosted glass bottle with a dropper to dispense just as needed amount, it’s extremely hydrating while being full coverage and last for twelve (12) hours and the claims are completely true which makes me so happy to say! It’s also hypoallergenic, vegan friendly and dermatologist tested!

I’ve also never found a foundation – concealer duo that looks amazing without needing to be powdery! Normal, dry, oily-combination skin this is completely perfect for you, no need to even question it! It has the perfect amount of sunscreen added ➡️ SPF 15!

TARTE RAINFOREST OF THE SEA CONCEALER™ Mask imperfections while sealing in radiance and hydration with this buildable, medium coverage concealing serum. It features concentrated levels of pigments suspended in deep conditioning serum made up of 20 percent water to deliver the coverage you desire and the moisture your skin craves. The vegan friendly formula is powered by the proprietary Rainforest of the Sea™ complex that serves as the ultimate defense for skin, helping protect from daily aggressors and premature signs of aging. Apply it directly from the custom scoop like applicator wand to mask any redness, dark spots and acne or to brighten the undereye area.
PRO TIP ➡️ this concealer is the perfect concealer to buy to light and to dark for your complexion because you can contour and brighten very easily.

There is only eleven (11) shades of the concealer which as I mention is perfect because the concealer and foundation work good alone but are better together.

Also don’t forget to go and check out MARCH favourites for the brush collection because they are amazing and worth buying to use with the foundation and concealer!
