ADVERTISING FIRM | NARS ORGASM AND SUMMER LIGHTS | MXTC

Good Morning, afternoon or evening – I hope you all are enjoying your mid – week, I know I most certainly am, before I get going and talk to you all about what’s up and what you want to know, I’m not a bad person, I don’t think anyone is a bad person I believe things happen that change our perspective and tilt our mind, I was hurt lately by someone who, meant something to me, lived a life time in two weeks and now it’s time to bring him to his knees, sorry you asked for what’s to come and the most delicious part of it all, it only will take three phone calls, and I won’t tell a single lie. I’m going today to talk to my second advertising firm to pitch my project – I’m so excited for this, I know at this point you’d be like what are you talking about? and that’s a good thing to be honest! You will know when I need you to know! But I do owe the city of Toronto a massive thank you, also the United States.

NARS has become kind of a controversial brand since they became un-cruelty free sadly, to sell within China you have to be able to test on animals which is sad, since the pull NARS has not tested on a single animal just wanted to reach fans on a global scale which said be true isn’t such a bad thing! Just look who their parent company is, couldn’t have come to a shock to many when the news dropped.

There is two collections I open this morning so I decided to play around with the colors, and give you my opinion of spring and summer with NARS and the smart choices they made under your nose! The NARS Orgasm collection is ecstatically please, the shade is universally flattering across the board so to have a lot options there when it comes to formula is just smart. For them to lead with the OG Naomi Campbell kind of speaks to the legacy of Orgasm and NARS did something very smart revamping the same shade into a new collection rather then pour out another meh collection!

“Glide it. Gloss it. Go for it. Turn on the iconic, universally flattering glow with four new ways to Orgasm. Sultry, sensational Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint stimulates lips with a surge of hydration and an irresistible afterglow. Orgasm Liquid Highlighter arouses eyes and cheeks with dewy, illuminating finish. Glow even bigger with oversized Orgasm Blush and ultra-sensorial Endless Orgasm Palette, designed for maximum experimentation. Whatever your pleasure, Orgasm from every angle.”

My top products from the NARS AFTER GLOW COLLECTION would be the Endless Orgasm Palette, NARS is well known for their shades, and well known for their artistry, the shades are curated together beautifully in a way that I haven’t seen NARS packing before – the shadows are like butter and blend together wonderfully, I love the pop of dusty orange within the palette, I also would be foolish to not mention the palette is for eyes, face and lips which comes to be with a lot of NARS lately.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ You can buy or check out all of the new NARS mentioned right here!

The NARS lip balm in shade orgasm is actually perfect if you’re pale as I am, and you kind of start to loose that lip shade you can lightly tap this over top bringing your lips back to lip and keeping them protected and healthy at the same time.

The summer lights palette from NARS is a personal favourite when they add in contour and or some highlight with your eyeshadows and they never fail when it comes to the summer, if you’re seating or go swimming they fit perfect in your bag if you need to touch up, I they always have been transfer and waterproof.

“Turn on the lights. Turn on the night. Summer gets a smoldering glow with covetable, limited-edition highlighting face palettes, adding instant warmth and radiance to eyes and cheeks. Featuring four eyeshadows in cult-classic matte and shimmering finishes, and complementary bronzer and highlighter to heighten and brighten.”

COVETED TOP 5 : NARS | M X T C

Hey guys, what’s going on! my jaw is on it’s way to healing very nicely! I’m scared for the next week, it’s going to be uneasy for me, Today, my mom is going for her triple bypass surgery, I’m nervous, but I assume that the doctors do this kind of thing every day and it’s just a walk in the park for them, no more time, and no more second chances here but I still have so much to say, so I hope that it goes smoothly and there is still time for me to say what I need to say, sadly my schedule doesn’t allow for me to be there until tomorrow, so I am just hoping in time.

Today I’m going to be talking about the coveted top 5 NARS products as decided by, you. This is a semi sponsored post, as the images and coding is all provided by NARS. I do believe that this is, in fact, the coveted NARS top 5.

Yes, there will be a NARS item in the spring giveaway, if you’re curious how this works the secrets to the giveaway are left in previous posts (and moving forward), I will let you know when the items are full up, and how you win, well, you will have to be smart this giveaway is items given direct from the companies and PR so you will be sent a list of brands and their social handles so that you may tag them in your IG winning post, there will also maybe be a brand or 19, 05, or maybe 15 looking for it for something special to be given.

Don’t stop. Keep going. NARS mascara, Climax, wants to give it to you – it being long, fluffy, thick lashes that just go on and on and on. Climax contains a full-bodied brush with a whipped, creamy formula that lifts and builds without clumping. There are very few mascaras that I would recommend in fact there are only 3.

➡️ The dictionary definition of the word climax is ‘the most intense, exciting, or important point of something; the culmination.’ So that’s a pretty ballsy name for a mascara. I was ready to get extra critical and pick this mascara apart like it was Bruce Willis and I was Demi Moore on Comedy Central’s Roast. But despite being on high alert for flaws, I couldn’t find any.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I used Climax on myself, my friend and set model. Each with different results, and with both girls having completely full busy days, both reporting back that it stayed out, only one saying at the complete end of her night there was a small flake under the bottom lash line.

Next coveted item I’m sure you already know, Radiant creamy concealer which move over shapetape is now the new number one selling concealer in America and Canada which is pretty cool. Seems a lot of people have forgave NARS for the whole China thing or they just forgot.

➡️ There is 30 shades in this concealer which is a good shade range for everyone, this concealer is also one of those concealers where its the perfect finish for conceal, contour and highlight, and with the buildable coverage puts the control in your hands. This concealer is also one of those under eye perfect concealers, personally I like a matte finish under the eye but this concealer is a really beautiful finish under the eye, and doesn’t crack, keeps the area hydrated and fresh.

➡️ Even though this is full coverage ➡️ it doesn’t look flat on the skin and that is the most important thing for me when it comes to concealer. If that isn’t the one thing you look for, it should be.

Next is Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation which comes in 34 shades and is probably one of the best set foundations with editing – so if a photo is going to be altered and edited, the makeup artist will lay down almost like colors for the person in editing to know the intended shades and where they go, with lines and almost like a blueprint on the face for the person in Photoshop. For day to day foundation I actually wasn’t a big fan of this but I know it’s 1 of   NARS best selling items and is a great foundation in regards to ingredients.

The NARS PowerMatte Lip Pigment is one word ➡️ NARS
is a definitive cult classic, remaining at the forefront of the beauty world and quickly gaining a permanent place in the hearts (and make up bags!) of all who try it. Uniting impressive pigment with precision (basically the ultimate lip wear power couple) this is NARS’ most powerful matte.

➡️ The liquefied pigment gives a weightless feel and grants ultra-flexible, long-lasting wear. It’s totally smudge and budge-proof, guaranteeing carefree wear, and unstoppable wear.

Warning: this is likely to turn you into a fully-fledged NARSissist. Without a doubt I feel the NARS power matte lip pigment is truly one of a kind. It is very easy to apply and feels weightless on the lips. The colour pigmentation is second to none.

I think that we all know what the last item is going to be from the top NARS items, and that is, without a doubt – NARS Orgasm Blush! is probably one of the most popular blushes from NARS.  It’s known for being one of those universal colors that looks good on everyone, and gives a sort of ‘glow’ to the skin with its fine gold shimmer.

NARS Orgasm is pretty pinkish-peach color with a golden shimmery sheen.  I find it works great as a sort of two-in-one highlighter and blush.  The light bounces of the soft gold shimmer and creates a glowy effect, while the peachy pink warms the cheeks.

What’s up guys, I’m currently sitting on the floor of my new office  – I just had it painted a beautiful teal color and set up my tree last night with my babe which was nice, checked out a new steakhouse and had a little bit too much to drink! but hey, blame it on the holidays. If you’ve been following me for a while you’d remember me talking about MARC JACOBS BEAUTY ‘no filter’ which was small campaign work I did for the launch of products for the brand which I thought I’d get my hands on a lot sooner but on new years eve this year you can check out the wall group to see some of my print work for the brand. Huge thanks to BOLD PR in New York city for the opportunity.

moving on,

Seems to me that NARS is coming back stronger and stronger since pulling cruelty free in order to expand there brand into China in the previous year, and since the company hit it big time with PR clean up after this happen, it would appear that they had a line up of knock out products (still not tested on animals) to win back a lot of the beauty industry and, well, me. I’m also not saying that when NARS choose to do this I jumped on my blog and bashed the company, I mean, how could I? I remember my first time going to Toronto and taking the subway to the Eaton Center just to buy a NARS duo eyeshadow for a photoshoot I was doing and new I’ve never been closer to the brand with launch parties, PR lists and free gifts.

NARS’ first 16-hour foundation that stays turned on by the power of radiance. Untraceable. Unstoppable. Unlike anything else. Longwear is finally lightweight—and radiant. High coverage is now super natural. Its breathable, fade-resistant formula is infused with Raspberry, Apple, and Watermelon extracts to help smooth and improve the look of your skin instantly, and over time for full-powered radiance. It wears longer, stays stronger, and looks better with each hour. Specialized skin-matching technology ensures your truest match yet. Your future looks radiant with Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation.

The PR send out for this was really costumed to who you are as a influencer they gave you three full bottles in your ideal closest shades and then the full shade range in mini bottles which is absouloutly, smart, perfect and awesome.

I’m going to get this off my chest and address this to you, and you know who you are, to take the time out of your day too attempt to attack me, show one you’re assumed level of intelligence, and two you’re inability to move on – I will admit that I haven’t always been the best person in the world but thankfully I was able to learn from my mistakes and move on with my life, I’ve always said that it impossible for me to go back and fix the mistakes that I have made, but I can make things right going forward. Instead of attempting to find ways to attack me or my man, if it wasn’t for me you’d still be exactly where you were when I came into your life, keeping PG, and real, thank you, thank you for giving me the drive to live better, fight harder, and love freely, and more importantly thank you for taking the time to even try to hurt me as I don’t even think about you anymore – thank you for showing me that I always did, and still keep winning.

To makeupandthecity, be stronger then hate, take the chance and love – if someone wants to try to use their free time to bring you down because they have had a bad day and feel worse when they look in the mirror just think to yourself ‘damn I wish I had that much free time still’

Now let’s get to the review shall we ➡️ NARS – Velvet Matte Foundation Stick isn’t extremely new of a product but after the company decided too sell in China meaning that they had to take away the fact of being cruelty-free – I was on the fence about wanting to continue my relationship with NARS, assuming that what they did was for money, and not considering the alternative reasons.

It’s one-of-a-kind, versatile matte foundation stick with a built-in, touch-up blender for all over coverage or touch-ups on-the-go. I have to say the built in blender is absouloutly amazing and if you spray a little setting spray on it to make it a little moist it applies even better. It’s a latex-free sponge designed specifically for use with the Velvet Matte Foundation Stick – it is washable, and anti-bacterial.

NARS-Velvet-Matte-Foundation-Stick-2017

It has medium to full coverage and is traceless which I really, really like comparable to HOURGLASS Vanish Foundation Stick but completely more product and function. It’s compatible with almost every skin type ➡️ ✔ Sensitive ✔ Normal ✔ Dry ✔ Combination ✔ Oily. As mentioned above it does have a matte finish and nicely controls oil. It has matte rebound powders that enhance the glide and comfort of wear, while mattifying the look of skin. Elastomer micro beads provide extreme flexibility and elasticity to help prevent creasing by adapting to movement without settling into lines or wrinkles. Ginger root extract and vitamins A, C, and E support natural antioxidant protection and defend skin from environmental damages while helping to improve the appearance of smoothness and evenness.

consumer study of sixty seven (67) men and women
➡️ 94% agree that it applies quickly, spreads easily
➡️ 94% agree that it feels flexible
➡️ 84% agree that imperfections are blurred
four (4) week clinical study of thirty one (31) men and women over four (4) weeks
➡️ 81% showed an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

SIDE NOTE ➡️ the blender sponge on the end of the Velvet Matte Foundation Stick pop’s off to be washed and also is available to replace (sold separately of course)
