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.

This skin care really does change your skin! You won’t find it in Canada sadly but there is international shipping so we can all enjoy the benefits of House Of Aenea there is something there for all skin needs and concerns which is amazing – one of my favourite from the collection is they have ‘ the heroes ‘ they call which are the skin care that they put the most testing and the most get what you give and it is true they are amazing. I am actually going to be picking my favourite from the heroes and doing a giveaway with the House of Aenea Instagram all you have to do is be following me (@kaminreallife) and (@house_of_aenea) so it’s pretty simple to win $400.00 skin care item of your choice!

The Modern Shield I love so much, it’s more like a finisher to your skin care

  • A one-stop skin protector
  • The back-bone of your day to day skin defence, it works like an environmental shield
  • Protects from high energy visible light from computers

Offers protection from infra-red radiation

Life is sometimes complicated for our skin to deal with.  Step out of the door and ever-changing weather – sharp sudden bursts of sunlight followed by low-lying clouds for example – can create situations where our skin is damaged by the sun’s rays one minute and then absorbing pollutants from traffic fumes the next.

Modern-Shield
How does it work boys and girls?

Ormesia is the active ingredient found in AENEA Modern Shield, with extraordinary powers to protect the skin from indoor and outdoor pollutants. Derived from a climbing vine native to South America, the Maracuja plant is well known for its fruits which are used in food and medicine. It’s better known as the passion flower and loved for its beauty, juice and scent.

Rich in antioxidants, the Maracuja plant oil has the ability to strengthen the skin’s fibroblasts, increasing the elastin and collagen found naturally in the skin, and making it more able to withstand aggression.Offering protection from airborne pollutants, it also detoxifies and prevents against sun damage, activating your skin’s self-defence mechanisms and revealing its natural radiance. Crucially it also helps to inhibit the skin’s natural reactions to high energy visible light from our computers and supports the cell’s DNA.The Modern Shield is the perfect hero product to protect from the effects of sun damage and UV rays on the skin (amongst other things) using the most up to date vegan and anti-ageing ingredients and formulations.

Lifestyle Enhancer

  • Protects your skin from ageing caused by oxidation
  • Keeps your skin youthful and elastic by fighting glycation
  • Helps reduce wrinkles and lines
  • Increases skin firmness

    AENEA Lifestyle Enhancer is a skin serum which works a bit like a booster for your daily beauty regime to tackle the effects of glycation. What is glycation exactly? Technically it’s the process by which the structure and activity of proteins within the skin becomes slowly stiffer, leading to the collagen and elastin becoming less elastic, a well-known cause of premature ageing.

    Lifestyle-2.jpg

    Another way to understand glycation is if you think about what happens when meat is cooked in a frying pan.  As it is exposed to heat, the natural sugars in it become more rigid until finally the steak is hard.

    This is what happens to our skin when it is exposed to the ageing rays of the sun – it’s slowly glycating. As the sugar molecules react with free amino groups of proteins, irreversible cross-linked molecules are formed, modifying the structure of our skin and making it appear more brittle and stiff. It’s an irreversible process, causing yellowing of the skin, and a loss of elasticity and suppleness.  Made worse by high dietary glucose levels, and by natural ageing, it has an overall detrimental effect on the visible appearance of our skin.

    Those would be my absolute two favourite from the hero collection and i know without a doubt anyone given the change to get tone of my two favourites will have their skin changed almost over night – it is absolutely unbelievable i stand behind any of the products that i review and it takes me a long time to review the skin care and in sure that its right for me, men and woman!  this brand had changed my skin care game in so many ways! It’s funny because I used to struggle and struggle just like all of you trying to find the right brand for me and I would always be told the ingredients are the same is exhibit a vs. exhibit b that is so far from the truth and we all know it, we get what we pay for! plain and simple.

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.

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.

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!

Charlotte-Tilbury-x-complexion-collection-x-rubric

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!

Screen Shot 2019-03-30 at 5.44.09 AM

➡️ 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!
