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!

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!

➡️ 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!

DYNAMIC DUO | M X T C

Hey boys and girls, what’s going on, I hope you guys had a fun and safe Friday night, if you had alcoholic beverages that can be seriously bad for the skin but we all do it, thankfully for us we have many, many tricks to boost the skin and start to heal it back to better condition. Dynamic Duos is a post I do when two products from different brands just work together so well it’s unbelievable and today I’m going to be talking about BLAQ and GLAMGLOW which are two pretty well known brands in Canada and much of North America. Don’t forget to DM me on Instagram if you have any questions or anything as I don’t approve comments due to negative comments in the past about my gender, of all things and I have likes restricted to five hundred and it allows one like to come though if you’re interested in that it’s a paid plug in call ‘with in the hundreds’ check out my past Dynamic Duos ➡️ DYNAMIC DUOS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY.

I’m sure that you all think BLAQ and GLAMGLOW would go well together regardless because of the brand types that they are but there is so many differences actually night and day – just so you know the Duos are GLAMGLOW Bubble Sheet Mask and BLAQ Eye Masks.  I wasn’t always 100% on the hype of GLAMGLOW I did a promo for them a while back which is what made me actually, see the ingredients, the factory and so much more!

➡️ This carbonated fizzy foam mask effectively removes dirt, excess oil, and makeup buildup. The translucent cleanser begins the oxygenating transformation into a face-forming foam cushion and 3-D microbubbles foam in all directions for the ultimate detox. Truth be told I semi like this mask because it makes you begin to look as if you’re a gnome or right out of the movie Frozen – The black bamboo charcoal sheet is infused with a microbubbling cleanser, featuring Green Tea Teaoxi technology and the essential amino acid l-arginine for radiant skin ➡️ Fresh citrus invigorates the senses.

Now as for BLAQ wow, is one word of saying it, putting it on before you get into the shower, and then even leave it on as you get in and wash your hair – the results are just wow. BLAQ says using the eye mask twice a week until you’ve kicked your bad habits will help reduce the appearance of under eye bags, but they can also be used as a one-off before an event or when you just want to feel good about.

➡️ Hyaluronic acid has the greatest ability to restore moisture out of just about anything, it holds close to 1000 times its weight in water! So for around the eye area these babies are what you need and what you will use once, they will be come apart of your full routine.

MY TIME IN LOS ANGELES | M A K E U P x T H E C I T Y

Friends, brands, incredible people and pretty good food – they say it doesn’t matter how big the city is, or the world, if you don’t want to see someone the odds are you will somehow. I always have this luck, it doesn’t matter if where I am or who I am with I will run into someone that I don’t want to see, even with an ocean between us but that’s not the point of this post, the city of angels, I can tell you right now there is a massive difference between work and play when you go to LA – a lot to see and a lot of places to play. Oppertunities around almost every corner if you know where to look and as long as you look the best.

I found that you can do just about anything if you’re creative enough, though you have to know where to draw the line, just like with anything; I was really surprised to find the intersection of Hollywood and Highland is like the Times Square of Los Angeles or Young and Dundas of Toronto. There’s very little here that’s exciting or LA-specific.It’s pretty much just a big, shiny, tourist trap if you come to LA for a work specific trip with a little time, you can absolutely do better in finding a place to unwind and feel the real LA-vibe. Ever since I was little, I would love taking the bus maybe to much actually even as I grew up I would put in my headphones and listen to music and just learn the area or the way around my new city or part of the city, I do not suggest LA city transit..it was…a good place to get the flu, one word ➡️ Uber.
instant-touch-up-essentials-feature-headerIf you’re like me you’ll have a touch up powder in your jacket pocket or have a cross body bag or nice backpack, assuming you’re not a woman and carrying a purse with you, there are a couple products that I’d recommend to keep your skin looking matte and oil free, if you’re not one for the touch up in public you can go the blotting paper route which I absouloutly love, and can really say they are not a gimmick, trust me I’ve done the leg work – Clean & Clear oil absorbing sheets will do the trick, but, you can also go the Fenty route with Invisimatte Blotting Paper which can work as rolling papers also in Marijuana legal LA and now Canada but that’s getting off topic! You can also just use your trusty MAC studio skin for that oil-free look that latest and a dose of pigment correction if you’re flushed ➡️ lastly if yo u’re carrying a cross body bag or purse you can throw in Smashbox Halo Hydrating powder for a fresh hydrated glow, pair with Smashbox Sheer powder brush.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ There is a lot of smog within LA and A LOT of air pollution so maybe pack a travel size Tatcha Luminous skin mist for only $20.00 or any brand really, just as long as it’s got ingredients to protect and keep the skin comfortable, and safe.

RIDE OR DIE PRODUCTS | MAKEANDTHECITY

So with it being 2019 – it’s a new year and a new start to do better then last year, we all have those products that are our ride or die, we use them daily and freak out a little when we see we are starting to run out. Hey guys, I hope you had a nice week! TGIF! We are going to be looking at my favourite beauty items and hopefully I can turn you on to something new for the new year. New year, new you! Some of the products I’m going to talk about you will see in more details. I believe in the products mentioned and I believe the companies can grow – all products have been sent to me via PR or direct from company, unless mentioned.

There is going to be no particular order or anything like that, I don’t want anyone to think that I like one brand more then another brand, also we are all different which is nice, so something that might work well for me – doesn’t work so well for you and your skin. All we can do is try new thing until we come up with our must have list. There is going to be some items that isn’t skin care or makeup as well!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I am a firm believer that sometimes you have to change up your skin care, it doesn’t have to be anything dramatic it can be something so small as changing your toner, or to a more moisturizing formula in the cold harsh winter life.

➡️ THE MAKEUPDROP™
One thing that I love and actually have a couple of for different reasons is The Zip Pouch by the MakeupDrop, they are so cool looking and the perfect size for all that you would need including brushes, the design of this bag is wonderful, a hard plastic material that stands tall on its own, with it’s holographic and transparent design, it’s the cutest addition to everyone’s beauty arsenal.

Next is something I just discovered but I absouloutly love so much called Restore* Wipes for you face and neck, the packaging is eco-friendly and so clever the way they made it come to be, The Restore* Wipes are individually packaged, making them great for on-the-go. With ingredients such as Chamomile, Cucumber, Jojoba, Aloe and more, Restore* Wipes deliver the proper nutrients to restore skin back to a calm and glowing state. It’s pretty much skin care in a wipe which I love so much because you get such an amazing feel from the wipes before you was your face, so the extra care your skin needs is there. They are also free of Parabens, Sulfates, Triclosan, Dyes, PEG’s, and Animal Byproducts.

Move over BeautyBlender – hello Hybrid Blender, Wow is all that I can say and this brand is a brand that I heart and soul believe in, I love the branding, the image and the 2019 forecast of products, but this blender is like a brush and a BeautyBlender had a child – Revolutionize your makeup game with the Hybrid, the perfect two-in-one applicator for liquid and cream makeup products. The flat Silicone Drop is a clean and product saving surface for an initial application, or sculpting and outlining. The super soft & latex-free Sponge is ideal for that flawless airbrush finish. For those who wear a full face of makeup, this blender takes you from base, contour even to lipstick and everything in between.

➡️ CLARISONIC
I can’t say enough good things about my Clarisonic Alpha, it’s helped my skin in so many ways just to help get that extra clean and to make sure that all of the environmental pollutions, dead skin cells, stop the pores from even becoming clogged in the first place, the only thing I can say, if you buy one of these devices make sure you use it everyday and put the work in because it will change the look of your skin. It also minimizes water retention in the face and neck which creates more collagen and stronger skin without the needle! Removes dirt, sweat and oil for healthier looking skin and boy, does it ever!

clarisonic-alpha-fit-for-men-review-720x540

➡️ MAC 
This one I think is on everyone’s top love list and that is the MAC studio fix powder plus foundation which works amazingly but, that truly only if you know what your actual correct shade. SO I did a little test, I went to the MAC PRO store and asked my shade and got NW15, next, I went to the MAC inside The Bay, there I was told I’m NC15 – I think point I’m like how the hell.. So I went into the MAC store when I was shopping in Buffalo and they said I was N5. So I was just so confused again, I guess it depends on the person that you ask, but shouldn’t MAC of all stores have some kind of system or training to properly, I understand my skin tone, undertone and MAC’s color system so the first man was correct, I am in fact NW15, I guess I’m just saying make sure you get a couple opinions of what is right, for you. Studio Fix really is that one-step powder foundation that gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte finish with medium-to-full coverage and a velvety texture that allows skin to breathe. Long-wearing, colour-true, non-caking, non-streaking, non-settling/creasing, non-fading – all for 12 hours. Available in a wide range of colours.

➡️ ZIIP BEAUTY
So this will be one of the most expensive tool I will be talking about but if you’re my age and are not yet ready for filler or botox (done right) or if it’s not even your avenue, it’s your body and your face – always do what makes you happy, ZIIP Beauty is the ultimate tool for well, everything. What it isZIIP is an electrical facial in the palm of your hand. We use nanocurrents and microcurrents to communicate with your skin cells, increasing their effectiveness, prompting them to heal, and encouraging them to make an abundance of collagen and elastin. The result is healthy, lifted, glowing skin that gets better over time. One of the best parts of ZIIP is the APP that you download to sync in whatever treatment that you’d like there is so many, ranging from 12min to 1min quick fix, ENERGIZE ➡️ FILL / LIFT / GLOW ➡️ SENSITIVE ENERGIZE ➡️ CALM / HEAL / TONE ➡️ INSTANT GRATIFICATION ➡️ LIFT / SCULPT / AWAKEN ➡️ PIGMENT ➡️ TREAT + PREVENT / MELASMA / SUN SPOTS ➡️ TOTAL CLEARING ➡️ TREAT + PREVENT / ACNE / BACTERIA ➡️ QUICK FIX ➡️ TREAT PORES / UNDEREYE / FINE LINES ➡️ VITAL EYES ➡️  FOR PUFFINESS / DARK CIRCLES / FINE LINES. ZIIP Beauty costs over $500.00US but truthfully if it’s a substitute for botox and fillers then it’s worth every penny – if you have hooded eyes, after one month of treatment, say bye-bye hooded eyes. I can’t even describe to you how ZIIP feels when you are using it on your face, but you can see the results after one use.

ziipitydo
SIDE NOTE ➡️ You have to keep repurchasing the conductive gel which can become costly because you have to use a lot, at least ten pumps for each ZIIP use, Conductive Gel is the link between your ZIIP and your skin. All of our gels start with the ZIIP Electric Complex, a combination of pharmaceutical-grade glycerin, a sugar complex that is one of the most conductive materials on earth, and dehydrated seawater, which is saturated with electrolytes magnesium, potassium, and sodium. The Electric Complex effectively and safely transfers electrical currents from the ZIIP Device to the skin. GOLD CONDUCTIVE GEL – $150.00 SILVER CONDUCTIVE GEL – $50.00

➡️ MAKE UP FOR EVER
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. What I do love about this concealer and the HD technology is that it’s undetectable even under 4k which will just show you how it will look like skin and not apply well, like Shape Tape, this concealer is self-setting so there is no need to powder the concealer, but you can still use a powder if you like, it will not make it look bad or cakey in anyway, I know everyone likes to set and forget and that still applies to this concealer, but, it’s just to good of a concealer. If you are male, it’s particularly amazing for our skin – it seems to work very well with our testosterone.

These are just a few of my ride or die products, I will do a complete list very soon or do monthly favourites.

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS SEASON FOUR PREDICTIONS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

The time has come, hey kitty girl I don’t know if you have been under a rock for a little or are just not a fan of the show Rupaul’s Drag Race but they just released the first 15 minutes of episode 1 and it looks absouloutly amazing! I do have to say and maybe like many but All Stars is my favourite seasons because I love seeing the queens come back and seeing how much they have changed and just really go for the crown. The line up of queens this season is such a good one, for our consideration we have ➡️ Monét X Change ➡️ Latrice Royale ➡️ Trinity Taylor ➡️ Farrah Moan. Valentina ➡️ Monique Heart ➡️ Jasmine Masters ➡️ Naomi Smalls ➡️ Gia Gunn and Manila.

Which to me seem like a really good line up, it was just to much of a tease for me I mean at the end when Latrice and Manila but I am fascinated to find out how Manila and Latrice’s relationship has changed since their disastrous turn on All Stars 1.

THEQUEENSAll Stars fourth season premiere comes just one week after Rupaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular, airing Friday, Dec. 7 at 8/7c. The festive face-off will reunite Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique and Trixie Mattel as they compete for the title of Drag Race’s first-ever Christmas Queen. They’ll lip sync for their lives to tunes off Rupaul’s holiday albums Slay Belles and Christmas Party. Which was a cute mini episode to watch the best part and spoiler ahead ➡️ when Michelle and Ru both lip sync for their lives and the dancer add in is, maybe a little to funny, or sad. Hard to say.

giphy-30
Also how do you feel about the trans element within drag? I mean no real woman dresses and wears makeup like a drag queen so the drag element is still there, it’s still within gay culture – also do you guys remember Ru making a transphobic comment last year? Some say that’s why Gia Gunn is even back, as sort of an apology?

I will keep updating this as we go! Don’t forget as a fan you are more involved then ever this season we have the chance to keep a queen or save a queen that should be, interesting.

ABH HOLIDAY PR | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

xmas
Hey guys,
as we get closer and closer to Christmas day, I kind of want to know – does anyone else start to feel, lethargic? It starts out I’m so excited, and happy for the holiday, it’s a fairy tale in motion almost, then, I’m in a endless line up of shoppers, endless family members, crazy drivers, I say it every year about giving my time to people who need it, or helping at a shelter or donating and I mean to do it but I always forget, and I know I’m not the only one who has the thought, we are always told, it’s the thought that counts, so that’s it then, I can feel good because I did have the thought to do it, so why do I feel lost this time of year. Just so everyone knows, I did go to the shelter and offer my time before it became the after thought of the year. I guess we need to keep the faith and don’t forget the reasons why, whatever your ‘why’ is.

#️⃣ MAKEUPANDTHECITY!!!

Anyway, let’s talk about the new PR out from Anastasia Beverly Hills – Which I believe is actually available to buy for you guys which is super cool! I am going to be donating these this year because everything that is in the PR is sold separately which means already have it from past launches or maybe I will do an Instagram giveaway but I am still doing the iPhone XR giveaway right now (BEAUTY NEWS / LIFE 101 / WINTER SKIN YOU’D KILL FOR / IPHONE XR GIVEAWAY (CANADA)| MAKEUPANDTHECITY) so we shall see what happens. I have also noticed that it seems to be a process to subscribe to a WordPress blog, if you don’t have any account.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ It’s about your stats, daily visits, views, what was read, there is also an option if you don’t make an account to just enter an email and you are sent a link anytime a post goes live – that is just as well because I still have disabled likes and comments for personal reason, unless you are a WordPress admin the your like / comment will show through no matter what but anyways I just wanted to let you know for the giveaway, my IG is more personal but I guess what is the point of that, follow me on Instagram if you want to win, and from new followers that is how I will choose the winner I will also screen record from the giveaway site so you see I’m being fair. 

So the holiday PR came in two boxes this year, and within the first box I opened I saw something that I thought Anastasia Beverly Hills should have done for along time now – a eyeshadow vault and it was really nicely done also. Unfortunately the Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette Collection is a limited edition set of 4 iconic ABH eye shadow palettes: Modern Renaissance, Prism, Soft Glam and Subculture, companies always say that something is ‘limited edition’ and they always bring it back so I don’t want to say get it before it’s gone because it is sold out right now on the website, but they are restocking is so if it truly was limited, then it would be once it is gone, it’s gone but being restocked – feel me?

fourabhset
➡️ Each palette contains 14 eye shadow shades, from essential neutrals and vibrant shimmer shades to bright pops of color and each palette includes a dual-ended brush and a large mirror inside its travel-friendly packaging.

➡️ ABH is committed to cruelty-free product formulation, testing, and development which is a huge plus within the beauty community and extended.

If you haven’t seen these palettes or don’t own them, lets break them down by each palette, Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette is more warm, romantic shades with intense color payoff. Prism Eye Shadow Palette is more universal neutrals and prismatic metallic shades and I personally love using this palette on set. Soft Glam Eye Shadow Palette is pretty much an essential neutral palette works with all skin tones and the color payoff is beautiful. Subculture Eye Shadow Palette is more edgy, grungy mattes and bold metallic shades – there was a lot of hype around this palette and when it came out it was a little underwhelming. It sell’s for $90.00US which is extremely good savings.

Next was the Anastasia Beverly Hills Holiday Pyramid Collection with an assortment of 8 shades of ultra-reflective metallic cosmetic glitters for face, body and hair. The Pyramid also came with 3 Mini Metallic Liquid Lipsticks in limited-edition shades – And included 4 Mini Lip Glosses also in limited-edition shades which nice to get some new during the holidays from a brand – Vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free as well. This is available only online and sells for $150.00US, Packaging is a big plus because it is beautiful looks good on a vanity.

Next I got 2, 10 piece Liquid Lips from sets from ABH and I’m not going to go to far into details because we all know what a liquid lip is by now and we all know how they apply them. What I will mention is there is two sets for Fair – Light skin tone (Containing 2 new nude shades and 8 favorite shades) and Medium – Deep. Containing 8 new nude shades and 2 favorite shades – Each lip color features ABH’s full-pigment liquid formula that applies seamlessly and dries down to a weightless matte finish for smudge-proof wearability. This sells for $60.00US, and it very much so worth the price point.

abh lips
There was 1 more item but I’m going to save it for a upcoming post, along with a promise made from a different post not to far back! Don’t forget to follow me on IG for your chance to win the giveaway, and try to do something nice for someone else! Love wins!
