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!

img_1457
“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.

Beat+the+Heat+with+NARS+Cosmetics+Summer+Lights+Face+Palette+_+Layersofskins
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.”

PR samples. Affiliate links | Exciting! A brand new concealer from Marc Jacobs Beauty! I have all the details, along with my review and swatches of the Marc Jacobs Accomplice Concealer. Enjoy! I also have the new Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder (must have) here for you to see, so keep reading to find out what you want to know!

marc-jacobs-accomplice-concealer-powder-review
Accomplice is a brand new collection designed to give you flawless, perfected, filtered skin. There’s a creamy concealer stick and also an Instant Blurring Beauty Powder.

The Accomplice Concealer claims ➡️ Creamy concealer and touch-up stick ➡️ Full coverage Long wearing Blends seamlessly for skin that looks totally natural ➡️ Can be used under or over makeup ➡️ Blurs the look of pores and fine lines ➡️ Covers dark circles and blemishes ➡️ Evens out skin tone Formulated with hydrating snow mushroom ➡️ Resists creasing or caking ➡️ Packaging designed to be easy to use on the go ➡️ Stick is created with a dip to fit finger ➡️ Can also be applied using a brush or sponge, or straight from the stick ➡️ 17 shades, I’m not sure if this is Marc Jacobs Beauty first launch of the Accomplice line but I don’t really think in this day and age having only 17 shades is really that acceptable but due but the brand did only send me three shades they thought were closer to me and the powder within my category shade so that they don’t waste packaging and so they they don’t waste product so I’ll pop into a local Sephora and check out the full line up when they launch!

marc-jacobs-accomplice-concealer-swatches-2

I was particularly excited to try this concealer because Marc Jacobs Beauty know how to do coverage. The stick format is super convenient and my hope was that it was like the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer but in a stick ➡️ it pretty much is just what I hoped for! I am actually so happy regarding this because the product from NARS was 

I used it straight from the stick on to my face but I allowed the product to warm up a bit from the warmth coming off my skin, and it blended out effortless creating a super flawless finish. It blurs pores, covers redness and pigmentation, and works as well under the eyes as it does on all the other areas of the face. I have only used it once so far – I tested it out yesterday and plan to wear it again today – but it was love at first try. I actually got asked if I was wearing any makeup or is that just how perfect my skin is and when I say i did just a little under eye, beside my nose and blended all together with enough to cover my eyelid then a but on my chin ➡️ no primer also. I was done and out the door. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ The one thing I would say is that if your skin is dry, or dries out during the day, reapplication can feel a little dry, so I’d recommend a quick hydrating spritz first.

marc-jacobs-accomplice-instant-blurring-beauty-powder-review

It is creamy and glides on to the skin with ease, and then just takes a light tap of the fingertip to blend in. It couldn’t be easier and is the perfect handbag (or bag pack) essential for touch ups on. I am actually looking at the claims and I’m trying to find something that it’s not capable of.

Accomplice instant blurring beauty powder claims➡️ Blurring, touch-up powder ➡️ Formulated to set, blur, and reduce the look of shine ➡️ Comes in a compact with a built-in brush ➡️ Perfect for use while out ➡️ Use it to refresh makeup throughout the day  ➡️ Contains perfecting pearl pigment to diffuse light & filter away the look of imperfections  ➡️ Available in 4 core color

It is very light and weightless, and does work to blur the look of pores and lines. My first impressions of this are good, but I need a bit more time to work out how much I need it in my life as a man who wears makeup sometimes the powder can be that one that gives it away. I legit cannot over look and thats the built in brush, not just you open it up and there is a small puff or little brush – nooooope, the entire and I mean like a transformer sorry thats just what it makes me think or my reference point about comes apart and it’s a full packing dense fan almost, it’s wonderful and so smart on the MJB team.

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!

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.

SELF SETTING | DUPE ALERT | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi boys and girls I typically don’t write from the 24th till the 3rd for the obvious reasons, but since I have so much going on right now, and I don’t at the same time due to reasons in my past blog (GREEK GODDESS COLLECTON | LUNAR BEAUTY MAKEUPANDTHECITY) I have been spending more time in a hospital more then I’d like, but that’s for a ‘LIFE 101’ post and if you’re new here, ‘LIFE 101’ is where I just talk about what’s going on in my life, things that are bothering me etc. trust me, there is a lot to say but the PR and beauty industry keeps sending out and making new products. A lot are wow and some are hard pass, I find for men in makeup that don’t really want the fully beat face – to woman who just want to be in the know.

MAKE UP FOR EVER came out with ➡️ Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer which is truly exactly what we are all asking for, since they came out with the tube HD concealer. I wondered what was keeping them from creating a concealer with a applicator or doe foot, I personally think that a doe foot is a better way to keep bacteria and all that bad stuff off your face. This creamy concealer has medium, buildable coverage, a natural finish, and second-skin feel in a self-setting formula with up to 12-hour, crease-free wear which can be a lot of claims for a concealer but over the years I have found that, MUFE doesn’t print without back up and a lot of testing. You can buy it here for $35.00CAD for 0.17 oz/ 5 ml.
29MUFEUHD
Right off the PR card about the products ➡️ MAKE UP FOR EVER’s iconic Ultra HD technology for flawless, invisible coverage is now available in concealer form. 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.

DUPE ALERT ➡️ NYX HD CONCEALER WAND buy it here for $6.00 also click the link to check out the product and the product facts! Save your coins if you need to, there is almost always a dupe out there and I will now be featuring DUPE ALERT.
29nyx044_nyx_concealerwand_1560x1960-b85nr
A lot of people have the theory that most moden foundations and concealers are all self-setting but that is absouloutly not the case, if it doesn’t say it’s self-setting then you have to set it with a powder and it’s not for the look of powdered skin but for the longevity of the makeup and to make sure that your face doesn’t melt off a hour after you’re done, we create body heat which is not a friend to cream makeup or concealers.

Another really, really great product that is not new per say, but just got a package change is from HOURGLASS which is a little more expensive but if you have oily skin to acne prone skin this would be a game changer for you, hell it works for any skin type, it’s all in the way that you use the product and yes if you didn’t guess it I am talking about Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation.

29immaculate-liquid-powder-foundation-relaunc29h
This foundation has some amazing ingredients which I will highlight and what that ingredient does for skin ➡️ Advanced Cashmere Kaolinite Clay:
Works continuously throughout the day to control oil, while drawing out impurities to keep skin clear ➡️ Phytostem Edelweiss: Provides antioxidants, smooth’s the look of skin, nourishes the complexion, and protects from free radicals ➡️ Oxygenating Solvents: Deliver oxygen to the skin to help clear pores. All ingredients within are vegan also.

You’re able to buy it here for $70.00CAD and you would get 1 oz/ 30 ml which is about the size of a standard luxury foundation.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ drawback of this foundation is that it can only be used with people who don’t tend to have dry patches. If this foundation is applied over dry spots, they will look even worse than they already do. It will make them very noticeable. If you get dry spots and still want to try this foundation, make sure to use a heavy moisturizer before bed to prevent dry patches. The only other thing about this foundation that could be bothersome to some people is that it is very waterproof. Many people’s face washing routine is only using face wash and then rinsing, which doesn’t work with this foundation. Even when primer is worn with this foundation, I find that because it adheres so well to the skin, washing it off can be a little bit difficult.

Don’t forget about my iPhone XR giveaway and the colourpop Christmas PR collection (THIS IS NOT A DREAM | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) and thanks for making it too the end! I hope you have a safe and fun NYE.

TOP FIVE PRODUCTS I USE DAILY | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hey guys – so much drama going on for me right now and I just really, do not understand why, the only difference between drama before and drama now is I have my very own big boy lawyer that I like to use. I really do understand that it happens, but I’m in a fight with one company over “copywriting” on clothing and thinking I took the idea when really, I bought them off wish, then one of my best friends purposely trying to get my in trouble with a company and brand that she had drama with, you just don’t use someone else name, its not fair, and it makes you look bad when everyone finds out. So my holidays so far have been…peachy.

I used to be that type who would wear, foundation, concealer, powder, setting powder and it would look good, and I have nothing against men who do all the steps but I found focusing on my skin, I’m not a teenage anymore and focusing on the skin care aspect did a lot better, I don’t have large pores, acne, or that dark of dark circles so it came down to it one day I was like what are you trying to hind when there isn’t anything almost like it is makeup abuse to do that and such a waste!

So lets get to the first thing that I use in the morning ➡️ MDNA SKIN’s The Face Wash and wow it makes your skin feel so amazing and fresh after one, and I mean one use the morning after you look so good, and I know its because of this cleanser (and line) it cost ➡️ $70.00CAD for 4 fl oz / 120ml and you can buy it from Barneys NYC by clicking here! When I say, this face wash is like nothing, nothing I have ever experienced it’s true, and trust me, I have tried so many products with so many claims to do this, or do that. MDNA SKIN’s The Face Wash is so gentle yet powerful brightening facial cleanser and makeup remover that quenches skin as it clarifies. Infused with alpha hydroxy acids and active botanicals, this cleanser purifies and helps visibly balance the skin while washing away dirt, debris, and all types of makeup.

mdna
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Malic acid: rejuvenating and brightening fruit acid that helps improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Turmeric: prized for its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to boost skin’s glow. Also there is a light scent which is mint, rosemary, geranium, and lime.

➡️ next is from MDNA SKIN also and its the MDNA SKIN’s The Serum and wow if you haven’t tried this line I really, really urge you to go and get a sample because it’s just that good, its hard to get into the price tag but these two I would say are staples from the line and I have, chrome mask, magnetic remover tool, eye serum and I do use them but I’ve found if you apply The Serum under the eyes and apply something on top its like you’re getting the same types of results, MDNA SKIN’s The Serum costs $345.17 for 1.7 fl oz / 50ml. and you can buy it here which again is a direct link to Barneys. MDNA SKIN’s The Serum is a breakthrough hydrating, plumping, and brightening treatment to help provide the look of firmer and more nourished skin. Enriched with powerful moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients, this formula helps to dramatically diminish the appearance of dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Three forms of hyaluronic acid : powerful hydrators that can attract and retain up to 1,000 times their molecular weight in water. Vegan squalene: locks in essential moisture and promote a soft, supple texture. Resveratrol: antioxidant that protects skin’s surface. Licorice: natural skin brightener that helps diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation from scarring and sun exposure. You can also check out my post about MDNA SKIN care ➡️MDNA SKIN | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

My next product of items I use daily is NARS soft matte concealer, I absouloutly love this little pot and I always have, but it is just now the way that I am using it that is right for me! This high performance, full coverage concealer instantly color corrects dark circles, redness, discoloration, and blemishes with a natural – looking, soft-matte finish. The oil-free formula builds weightlessly, blends seamlessly and last effortlessly while delivering long term skincare benefits. Light diffusing particles produce a soft-focus effect, smoothing skin and blurring imperfections. And after I get out of the shower before I blow dry my hair and get cute for the day, also after applying my skin care and normal routine, I warm up the product with my index fingers and swipe it under both eyes, around the nose, small bit on the chin and forehead and buff it into the skin using a buffing brush. Them my skin looks perfect, go on and blow dry my hair and let the my oils work with skin and then I use my fourth product which is a powder foundation a couple shades darker so that it gives me a sun kissed glow! NARS concealer is $40.00CAD for 0.21Oz or 6.2g from Sephora, NARS, or Ulta Beauty.
img_0322
As mentioned I used a powder foundation from SMASHBOX halo powder, I have always used it and always liked it, it leaves your skin with an amazing even glow that people will be commenting at, like I said to cut out useless steps I went a couple shades darker so that I can blend a little harder to get that bronzed look, keeping in mind I am pale, and it is winter! Halo Hydrating Powder Foundation is a foundation-setting powder hybrid that combines the payoff of a pressed powder with the luminous and breathable finish of a loose powder. The built-in powderizer allows you to freshly grind the perfect amount for a single application every time without fear of mess or over-powdering which I absouloutly love! The weightless formula is infused with Mineral Boost Complex, a blend of amino acids, peptides and minerals that work like a filter for skin, leaving you with an instantly corrected complexion and youthful glow. SMASHBOX halo hydrating perfecting powder is $80.00CAD for 0.3 ounces which is a lot of product and does makeup for the harsh price tag for a powder if you look at it that way only its so much more!

FIVE5BONUS SIDE NOTE ➡️ I also always will keep the Ilia Radiant Translucent Powder SPF 20 in the shade and only shade Moondance it wonderful to keep with me during the day to touch up and also for the SPF baby, SPF doesn’t last forever so its always good to touch it up! I have had this as my little secret weapon for so long before it’s small but has a full buffing / blending brush pop out, also gives you little instructions on the side, for example closed, open, buff so you know the powder has made its way to the end of the bristles. With a blend of organic powders and healing oils, our talc-free SPF 20 translucent powder formula nourishes and softens skin, while taking down shine thanks to a skin-texture, translucent finish. Formulated with aloe leaf extract to keep skin feeling cared for, and passion fruit and rosemary oil to soothe and fight inflammation. Leaves skin’s surface shine-free, but enough of a lit-from-within luminosity to leave it looking healthy and glowing and hey also easy too apply SPF throughout the day while on-the-go.

ALSO when it runs out of powder, the plastic holder does come out so you can add any milled powder if choice you want but they also do sell the powder by its self so you can add up from there!
