IN BLOOM – CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC AWAY COLLECTION WITH A TWIST | M X T C

Finally I got my MacBook back (though I do find myself getting stuck on the command and control key) from the Microsoft Chrome challenge, wow it took a little bit longer with shipping it back to me and everything like that, it also got stuck in customs for a very long time, but I’m going to break out the similarities and big differences between the two powerful computers in a coming post! I’ve also decided that any post that is for spring beauty, or new spring launches i will call ‘IN BLOOM’ which just seemed to be, just fitting too me! How are you boys and girls doing? I truly hope that you are all doing well, in Canada central Canada the weather has been pretty good! Not to cold but thankful not to hot! Who you rather it be hot? or cold? or just fall all year round but we had a week of peak sumner heat!

I don’t know why but I seem always over look Charlotte Tilbury! i remember going to a press event for he line coming into Holt Renfrew in Toronto on Bloor St. I wasn’t really liking the feel mind you Faulhaber Communications who was organizing this whole event and you can quote me on this, I truly think there is no better PR Agency in Canada then Faulhaber – they just do things one step on the game! But anyways a PR agency is not why we are here Charlotte Tilbury is, I just have to say how on the website its all ” hello darling “ it truly is iconically Charlotte, after meeting her now when I read the names or read a paragraph,  I can literally her her saying it, it’s wonderful! 

If you were to buy one thing for Charlotte Tilbury it should be the Magic Away Concealer and heres why honestly the Magic Concealer is like spanx for your eyes as much as that sounds, its completely true! it spreads itself out so thin but there is so much pigment and added benefits to it –  is an incredible full coverage liquid concealer in a netural shade for all skin tones and undertones. For five years, Charlotte Tilbury has been working on this holy grail of concealers that reduces the appearance of dark circles, blemishes and imperfections, for fresher-looking second skin instantly!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ If you think that this concealer was not 5 years in the making you are wrong! we would get yearly updated from who handle CT PR either the USA or Canada firm.

Next would be Charlotte’s Unisex Healthy Glow which is a hydrating tint – it’s not as full if  a hydrant as a tinted moisturizer, I would recommend putting a little of a stronger hydrator around your nose, chin, between the brows and centre of the forehead to give it that BAM This fabulous unisex cream is SO natural, no one will suspect you’re wearing it! and its so true so who else to try it on but my boyfriend who actually still wears it to date within his skin care regime, it really does just even out the skin with just enough coverage with a hit of bronze that you wouldn’t really expect. It kinda reminds of the Recipe For Men Bronze cream which does the similar thing ➡️ if not the exact same only its made to work more with mens skin and testosterone and such – which when you’re a man it’s nice to have those options without calling it ‘makeup’ and when I say if you’re a man I mean it as a guy who doesn’t wear makeup or know the world of makeup; plain and simple!

➡️ Next on my would be the Goddess Ritual Cleanser Duo from Charlotte Tilbury it’s absolutely one of my must have for cleaners ➡️ I always say that cleansers are a grey area, many disagree with me but it’s true, I don’t think there is enough time used to be able to make a difference within the skin, I’m not saying that they don’t do anything because they do, but what follows after cleansing your skin us where you will see the most benefits until trying this ➡️ Deeply purifying, super-charged cleansing duo for fresh, radiant-looking skin just make sure if you have blemish prone skin watch out for large doses of vitamin c sometimes with some skin it can have a negative effect! Sadly I know this all to well!

MAKEUPFOREVER | SELF-SETTING CONCEALER | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi there, Nope, You’re reading the title right, I am blogging about the same Self-Setting concealer but at the time I did it came out in PR and wasn’t out just yet so I’m going to cover it again because, and for no other reason than, it’s just that good – prepare you’re self for what I predict to be the concealer of 2019 and I have a feeling it will be out of stock a lot on the shades that you’re going to want and or need! Also if you’re new to the industry you may have heard that MUFE is cutting out PR and that is absouloutly true – they are going to keep Micro-Influencers and some larger ones but they will not be going forward with updating a media list, but they are going to be making the professional discount a lot easier to receive recognizing all avenues of beauty and industry standards. I am left with one question – is 2019 the year to kiss the powders goodbye?

We’re only two days into 2019, and it’s looking like one hell of a year for innovative complexion products. The latest brand to change up the game is Make Up For Ever, which is solving all of our makeup woes with its new Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer. Make Up For Everis releasing a concealer that sets itself and promises to stay put. That’s right, you can forget about setting your makeup with a translucent or foundation powder, because the new Ultra HD concealers will do the work for you. This is especially great if you’re looking to cut down steps in your routine and if you want to steer clear of drying powders (or toxic ingredients in our lungs) during the winter season. The new complexion products come in 22 shades (at first launch). The formula offers a creamy, medium coverage that glides on seamlessly. According to Make Up For Ever, the concealers are crease-free for up to 12 hours ➡️ this is all without a setting powder.

04maxresdefault
It also has light coated pigments diminish the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and imperfections, and immediately set. The smoothing, hydrating, creamy liquid captures and diffuses light so that skin that appears bright, flawless, and fresh all day. So pretty much for boys in makeup who don’t want to walk out of the house like Patrick Starrr and there is no hate there, it just seems to do something that I have always wanted from a concealer and you can get as close as you want and you cant tell at all its there. Under the eyes, small bit around the nose area, a dot on the chin, and I’m done and out the door.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ According to a press release sent to MAKEUPANDTHECITY
(I feel so official), Make Up For Ever will discontinue its current Ultra HD Concealer formula for the new one. Does anyone love this one? I never really got into it so I’m not overly upset.

04makeup-forever-ultra-hd-concealer-2019-review-4-650x43043
There is so much to be said about this concealer and I urge you to get and pay the $35.00CAD for 5ML because it’s such an amazing concealer and it’s a good step in the right direction for makeup in 2019! You can take a better look for yourself and buy if you’d like too right here.

The niacinamide and zinc in Super Pure visibly soothe redness and help calm blemishes, respectively—especially useful during that time just before your period. Junk food and stress are other skin-disrupting triggers that Super Pure helps counteract. It gets troubled skin in check and flushes out impurities, including excess sebum that builds up inside pores. The light, water-gel formula quickly absorbs into skin. Super Pure is an integral part of The Supers squad: three concentrated serums to refill your skin’s deficiencies, strengthening it day after day. (GLOSSIER – THE SUPER PACK | MAKEUPANDTHECITY)

VICHY – LIFTACTIV VITAMIN C | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi makeupandthecity

⬅️ SMASH THAT SUBSCRIBE BUTTON!!
⏯ PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

What’s up everyone, I hate when the clocks go forward or backwards because it kind of messes with my head for a couple days like right now its 4:20am when it should be 5:20am – I know its only an hour and my body shouldn’t feel it that crazy but it does. anyway, I’m finally having some down time and although I don’t typically write on Sunday I figured I haven’t been writing much lately and I have obligations and a lot of PR to go through especially now with being sent all the holiday PR sets and wanting to find the best of the best and what is worth your money and well, what is cheap and not what you would find in the real product! SO be prepared for what’s to come.

This morning I’m going to be talking skin care from one of my favourite brands, VICHY (LIFTACTIV VITAMIN C WITH HYALURONIC ACID) from the new skin care products to come out lately I have too say that VICHY continues to step up their game – I did the full ten (10) day continuous treatment (brightening skin corrector) and I was blow away with the results you see right away and after the ten (10) days are up!

lift2

SIDE NOTE ⭐ this product was developed for all skin types and is developed for anyone with concerns loss of firmness, loss of radiance and uneven skin tone.

VICHY set out to make a shield against oxidative stress and to reduce the consequences of exposome on the skin, this is the new gesture to adopt. Liftactiv Vitamin C Skin Brightening Corrector is a powerful formula to help fight dull and uneven skin tone with only 11 ingredients. No fragrance, no silicone, solely the essential active ingredients.

15% pure vitamin C is essential to the proper functioning of the body, Vitamin C is present in the skin where, by trapping a certain category of free radicals, it fights against damage induced by oxidative stress. It is also an asset for fighting pigment disorders, re-densifying the extracellular matrix and fighting inflammation so as to soothe the skin. This multitask active ingredient works quickly to attenuate fine lines, even out complexion and boost brightness and boy does it ever, I absolutely will be using this product on set under primer for added radiance and glow!

Naturally present in skin, hyaluronic acid guarantees skin plumpness and hydration. To help it fulfill this role, among 100 active molecules, Vichy selected hyaluronic acid from natural origin. Its greatest contribution? Acting like a sponge to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water while ensuring perfect tolerance, even on sensitive skin. It forms an even film on skin surface, protecting it against external aggressors.
Of a small size, the Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid penetrates the deep layers of the epidermis and triggers the synthesis of the molecules involved in skin aging prevention.

Sometimes you just need a refresh. A break, a vacation, some spa time, or really just some time alone to get yourself together. The same goes for your skin. We put our skin through a lot. We wear makeup, we experience season changes with either humidity, heat, or extreme cold, and we spend hours working hard – as hard as it is to live such a busy life our skin goes through the ringer, and sometimes it needs a moment to refresh that’s why I would recommend VICHY LIFTACTIV VITAMIN C WITH HYALURONIC ACID.

CLINICALLY PROVEN EFFICACY*

  • IMMEDIATELY: 24% more firmness
  • IN 10 DAYS: 21% more radiance

PROVEN EFFICACY BY CONSUMERS**
AFTER 10 DAYS

  • 83% brighter skin
  • 71% skin appears smoother
  • 73% complexion appears fresher

HIGH-PERFORMANCE TEXTURE

  • 96% is quickly absorbed
  • 88% doesn’t leave greasy residues on the skin
  • 90% doesn’t leave skin shiny

SMASHBOX BRUSHES AND BRUSH SETS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi makeupandthecity, what’s good?

SMASH THAT SUBSCRIBE BUTTON AND SHOW SOME LOVE!!

Before we go on to what I’d like to talk about I just wanna touch base with you guys and talk about STREAMLINE which is my advertising proposals – lately I have been getting offers for advertising for beer and online Poker – and when thinking why would they even offer me that, I was told its because I identify as lifestyle also which is true so I do get but at the same time I’m going to ask you, the viewers if it’s silly to talk about makeup and stuff and then see ads for PARTY POKER. I mean I could just keep those types of ads for posts that maybe they will come in handy.

Did_You_Know_1

If you didn’t know SMASHBOX has been working for quite some time on a brush revamp to launch exclusively at Macys, there will be twenty-nine (29) new red brushes and a new ‘gel cushion’ applicator called “The Photo Filter” of course SMASHBOX has called this line of brushes Camera Ready Brush collection – from what little bit I have seen, I do see a little influence from other brushes like Charlotte Tilbury and the way her handles are grooved for more comfort and so that when placed down, they don’t roll away.

gel
The Photo Filter gel cushion, at first really reminded me of the silisponge but the silisponge is hard and to be honest, just a big waste of your money. SMASHBOX did something differently with the Photo Filter gel cushion which is in the name really, gel cushion – so I’m thinking that its going to be a little softer and a little more squishy but in a good way – also if you see promo photos you’ll see the details on the gel mimics the same outline on a finger print, we also already know that the texture will not absorbe any product and it will be very easy too clean. It’s flexible diamond shape reaches every angle of face and it will use a lot less of your product then traditional makeup sponges or applicators.

Next with the revamp and new launch of twenty-nine (29) brushes I think that within a lot of the newer and even some older brush sets SMASHBOX has been including these brushes as tests to see what the consumers has to say about them like the #SHAPEMATTERS brush set, I think we will see a more professional quality brush(s) comparable to the look and application of that brush set, I also as I mention above that we will see similar factors from other brushes (from other lines) in the new Camera Ready Brush collection.

Makeup lately has focused a lot on sculpting features and playing with lighting to shape the face, although this is nothing new to SMASHBOX I think they saw it as a perfect time to revamp and launch a new brush collection which is, well, true! SMASHBOX used to have a full brush section and now they don’t really have many brushes like they used to have – I’m happy to hear that they are doing twenty-nine (29) revamped and new brushes and I hope that they blow us away with quality!

Remember what I said though about seeing similar brushes in this collection that look like they have been picked out of previous brush collections because SMASHBOX does put out a lot of brush collections.

smashbox-light-it-up-makeup-brush-5-piece-set-d-20160930192154387~507719
Pictured above is SMASHBOX Christmas brush collection – notice how the metal attached to the handle and shaping the hairs is goes out a little bigger and then to thinner I think we will see that same design from the entire new collection launching soon at Macys – and why not? it looks super cool not just a basic metal component.

I think there will also be a mix of cruelty-free hairs of course, it will be good for SMASHBOX to introduce their new brush line at this time also with all the controversy with NARS and revoking their cruelty-free status to sell in China – just a thought.  At the end of the day – makeup brushes are just makeup brushes not a lot can be done to create or invent a brand new design but I have hopes for SMASHBOX to know this out of the park because lately their new ‘revolutionary’ products have been a little lacking for me.

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x CHARLOTTE TILBURY / WHY BE YOU? WHEN YOU CAN BE ME?

whats up makeupandthecity!

I’m still alive I was just, taking a breather I guess. If you saw my previous post, I guess even with the title trigger warning and the clear as day definition – it was pulled for age restrictions. silly boy..

So lets keep this, step back short and sweet, and the next step will be my phone. Not that I’m going to lie, its been so nice until I was pushed in the fire.
Can I just say, the world we live in..wow

Its hard to know who I can trust and who I can talk to you right now, so I’m keeping those in my heart closer then ever, sometimes that’s all that we can do, I can talk till I turn blue in the face, as many people that would like to see me thrive there are also so many that wish to see my fall.

Caution tape around my heart, Do you ever wonder what we could have been? You said you wouldn’t and you fucking did – Lie to me, lie with me, get your fucking fix. Now all my drinks and all my feelings are all fucking mixed, Always missing people that I shouldn’t be missing. Sometimes you gotta burn some bridges just to create some distance. I know that I control my thoughts and I should stop reminiscing But I learned from my dad that it’s good to have feelings- when love and trust are gone, guess this is moving on – Everyone I do right does me wrong.

I fully remember starting makeupandthecity and sending my press kit for the first time to PR companies in hopes that one would see my drive for success and that I knew what I was talking about – sure I left makeupandthecity for a good year and a half when I started something new with someone and it was clear to me that, i’d have too choose because I wouldn’t have the time for both. I was being sent and talking about CHARLOTTE TILBURY when she was still in the UK and just signed with her first Canadian PR company faulhaber communications I’ve been a long standing social influencer for them that I’ve seen interns become press managers and sadly my media contacts ‘move on to better things’ again at this time I was living in Liberty Village in Toronto and I would past their office all the time so the first time I went to and worked in a press room, was there where I saw concept plans for what we are going into.

SIDE NOTE • you don’t need to be press or media to request a press kit – my press kit will include a business email to my new home and who looks over me and my PR and media currently. Also anything that you read here CAN be fact checked upon request! Just click here!

SO
I see all of these influencers beating CHARLOTTE TILBURY for her new gold bar highlighter and I do understand its about $50.00 which takes it there for a highlighter – but the packaging is meant to be cardboard because back in the day so that there was no more weight added to the bar of gold – it was packaged in a very thin almost, cardboard.

bar-of-gold-side_1_1WHAT MAKES BAR OF GOLD MAGIC :

• This delicately-fine, gilded formula will give you the instant glamour of a Bond Girl, every day! • Luxurious Pure Gold Pearls illuminate the skin and soft-focus any imperfections for a lit from within glow. • Create a radiant, glossy complexion in just 5 gentle strokes across the cheekbones, temples, nose, cupid’s bow and décolletage. • The light-reflecting highlighter slims and sculpts as it transforms. Ideal for lifting dull skin, hiding imperfections and adding that red carpet-ready finish to your look.

It is a very impressive formula to boot – I don’t know what they are doing in the UK well I guess I would know better, of course, we put out the best highlighters and lighting kits because it’s always dark and overcast in the UK – shout out to my UK family. If you can’t find your own light boys and girls – make it.

Just a short hello and what’s going on, and welcoming me out of bed..
I’ll get back on my grind! I promise. keep up the love! #MAKEUPANDTHECITYLOVEWINS

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x SMASHBOX – Photo Finish Primerizer

Hello, Konichiwa, Bonjour, Hola, Aloha makeupandthecity, what’s up?


PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!
⬅️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON FOR THE LATEST!

If you’ve been with me from the get go then you would know, I love smashbox cosmetics, they really were the first brand that I started makeup with, I’ve got an amazing connection with the company and see them every time I am in LA. They have a wonderful team there, especially Laura – shout out to Laura if you see that!


companies put out a lot of products per year – and some are amazing and some.. not so much so today I am going to be reviewing the smashbox primerizer for you guys, I saw the request to review it – and I have had it since before it’s launch but I don’t know we will get into it.

Did_You_Know_1
I hope you all had a killer weekend and a good Monday, sometimes I wish, I wish so badly that it was possible to rewind time and unsee something or just let it go, and I swear even if we could only do it one (1) time, I would use my one (1) time right now because it’s its killing me to know this and see someone in a different light in a snapI need to let it go or sadly let go.

COME on heart and head, get on the same page again.

Back to why you’re here, Photo Finish Primerizer by smashbox cosmetics is a primer and moisturizer in one (1) Primerizer delivers 24-hour hydration plus powerful primer benefits in the lightest possible texture. It was created in our L.A. photo studio to instantly increase moisture by 127% & prep skin for makeup in one (1) step.
This non-greasy, quick-dry formula acts as a makeup magnet that locks on foundation and makes it last.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I will say one of the things that I love about smashbox is smashbox studios and that they develop everything in smashbox studios in set environment so the products  you know will be good.

SBP.jpg
NOW here’s the thing smashbox is saying that this is a breakthrough and they thought
this up when in fact a brand as small as ELF (eyes lips face) in fact had this before smashbox had this breakthrough..

Actually a lot of companies have been doing this for a while and it’s been a well known PRO TIP to mix a little primer into your moisturizer for added benefits – I even have a moisturizer that I love by Vichy that I love but it doesn’t really help for oil control so I have always added a little matte primer into it to customize my moisturizer that I love.

Primerizer doesn’t even feel like a moisturizer or a primer, I found it to be very greasy on the skin and made makeup application to look just wet and not a look that any man or woman would want, I don’t think any of the claims really are true to be said – and I’ve really given this a good go because I wanted to like it but when smashbox tries to mix in skin care or try to step into that world, don’t you find the products that they come out with flop? sadly to say.


It did feel cooling on the skin which was nice, I don’t really have textured skin so I can’t say it helped with my texture but it did make under my eyes look nice everywhere else just applied patchy, I would say wait for it to dry down before applying concealer and stuff but it never dries down, there is so much oils or something in this.  

I even have a professional moisture checker for your skin, I applied it to my skin on one hand and allowed it to dry down and absorbe into my skin and my normal hand was 67.9% and then the hand that was supposed to give me intense rehydration only went up top 69.9% and the results on my face weren’t any better. I am not saying that this product isn’t right for you, but it didn’t work well for me or anyone that I know.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ it’s also been shown to cause some breakouts to people who have oily to problematic skin sadly.

HONESTLY – if you have Photo Finish primer and you have your favourite moisturizer then save yourself the $50.00 and just mix the two and you will come out with a better result, I know smashbox put primers on the market but its a primer at the end of the day, we have seen them all and know them all. Smashbox already makes the best primer with Photo Finish. Enough – focus on more new and exciting product development.
