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, Hi, Hello; so I am back happily and safely in Canada and one of my new years resolutions what to start to film more and out of my spare room create a nice little filming set up that, so I have ordered the lights and I already have then 4k camera, so I’m just waiting for the proper items to arrive – I met a couple Marc Jacobs employees while I was there who shared some really cool item(s) that will be for sale coming up one item in particular I have mentioned previously as kind of ‘why hasn’t anyone done this yet?’  and I bought something for the time that as a man, simplified and just made something I don’t much like doing – such a good experience and for only $49.00.

Alright so lets get into it, Marc Jacobs beauty is coming out with new concealers and wonderful touch up and finishing powders, I know they are set to launch I believe mid February to the end of February but it will be worth they with, the packaging for these are absouloutly flawless as Marc Jacobs always does, though that whole cheetah print collection I had to just take a couple of steps back from, a little to feminine for me, but hey we are all different.

The powder is what I can’t wait for, it’s a faux leather from meeting with a beautiful metal, built-in brush, and get this it’s so well hidden you wouldn’t even know it was there unless someone told you, I was able to check out some empty shells and if you’re all about the name and  the design, be prepared to fall in l o v e.

The concealers packaging is kind of standard for Marc Jacobs Beauty, to me, it kind of looks like a lipstick or one of those in your purse vibrators, come on, you see it too! It appears like it’s going to be a good year for Marc Jacobs of course I can’t comment on anything else as I don’t have the products just as if yet.

For men’s grooming, I know I am late to the party for this one but I’m so happy I am at least late and I have a feeling that maybe males already know about this but if you’re a female buying for Valentine’s Day for your man or even if you got it all done, trust me, add this in and he will love it, what I am talking about is Philips OneBlade for face and body edition which costs close to $100.00 but there is one for just the face for $49.00 and you can find it for cheaper only by like $5.00 but hey, it’s still saving right.

I always, no matter what I did, new razor, the softening hair oil, the exspensive brews and potions would always, alwaaaaays, suffer razor bumps and I hated it so much, I just hate the act if shaving but with Philips OneBlade you can do it all even a complete close shave, you can us it wet or dry but do not run it under water, it means you’re able to us it in the shower if you wish, I have see the Dolan Twins use this, a lot of drag queens use it because it doesn’t cause any irritation and gives you such a close shave! Oh and it’s rechargeable!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Such a cool feature is the heads last you up to four months and when it is time to change the head a green square appears in the centre saying hey no, you better get me a replacement head!

Yay my first favourites post!

Like, well, always there is a lot of his and misses in the skin and makeup world so much stuff actually is pretty much the same thing as the other. 

Here is what I’ve been loving in, books, music, skin, makeup and technology ➡️

ELLIN HOKINS : perfect 

“Everyone has something, someone, somewhere else that they’d rather be. For four high-school seniors, their goals of perfection are just as different as the paths they take to get there.

Cara’s parents’ unrealistic expectations have already sent her twin brother Conner spiraling toward suicide. For her, perfect means rejecting their ideals to take a chance on a new kind of love. Kendra covets the perfect face and body—no matter what surgeries and drugs she needs to get there. To score his perfect home run—on the field and off—Sean will sacrifice more than he can ever win back. And Andre realizes that to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance, he’ll be living a life his ancestors would never understand.
If you’re fimilliar with the “crank” series then you will know “perfect” is one of the newest books in this heart pounding series that’s take you on a serious emotional rollercoaster that brings you on the crazy extreme highs and lows of the characters involved. “Perfect” came out in the late 2011’s and I remember me and my friend loved the series of the books so I waited to buy her a copy as a surprised just to make her smile! Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses its meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect? Its a  riveting and startling companion to the bestselling Impulse, Ellen Hopkins’s Perfect exposes the harsh truths about what it takes to grow up and grow into our own skins, our own selves. 


Something you should know ➡️ the books are in order pretty much and should be read the way they came out but they do not have to be for you to make sense of it. They are continuations but if you didn’t know that then you wouldn’t know it. 

Put down the phone, pick up a book. 

iPhone 7

This is one of those I can’t put it down type things, I absolutely love it. I love the feel, the design, and the futures. I have also loved Appel – for some reason I’m not into Android or the Galaxy like a lot of people are, I’ve had one phone before and the was the original HTC touch that I think came out before the iPhone even did – and ever since then I just went up and up with the iPhone as they evolved and became more new with mind blowing updates and iOS

Especially if your work is really about popular culture, networking and communications then it’s an amazing phone that literally does it all. I absolutely love the new camera, it’s one of those cameras they you need to use and use to work with and find how to use it and the setting properly – its almost as good as a high quality camera from Canon for sure. (ONLY the iPhone 7plus comes with the dual camera on the back) Water resistant, I know a lot of phones are doing this now so I’m not completely blown away by it but I know that it’s something cool and is a feature that Apple pretty much had to ad to keep up with all the newer phone models and that doesn’t mean you can you can go swimming all day with your phone it means it can take a shallow dunking and they you better dry it off pretty good. The processor is definitely faster, although keep in mind that last year’s iPhone 6S has more than enough speed for most people’s needs. One thing I didn’t like was where the heck is the headphone jack!? I get the wireless headphones come with it and they want you too us bloothtooth wireless headphones with it but come on what is you have a pair of headphones you love already, I know Apple did make a Dogle that plugs into the lightening port at the bottom and you can use your headphones that way but it seems unjustified in they reasons as to why ➡️ which I’m sure a lot will agree with me. 

Apple iPhone 7Plus


The blendsmart is a super smart electric makeup brush that comes with attachment heads for all of your complexion needs – I did just do a full in depth review of this product if you want to go check it out. It you want fast and perfectly airbrushed looking skin then this is completely the investment for you and something you will want to add to your makeup routine – the hairs on the brush are antibacterial which kills germs from forming onto the bristles of the brush and I also thing it helps the skin to keep bacteria off it which is just a plus. The brush heads spin at 190 RPMs and imitate the motion of professional makeup artists to deliver consistently, flawless blending, every time. The soft, premium synthetic brush heads work with all makeup formulations. 


TARTE rainforest of the sea™ (double ended brushes) 

So for some reason lately I’ve been obsessed with double ended brushes I don’t know if it’s because it’s so convenient to just flip it over and keep going or just because there brushes and just bold and almost masculine looking – They’re Vegan and CrutlyFree which is a huge plus, they are made from the highest quality synthetic hair for a better the real hair feel and more importantly they will not drink up your products at all!

PRICE : $32.00 – $56.00 (Depending on the brush of course)
