What’s up guys and girls – today is just one of those days, you know know when you order your first Cartier bracelet because thats just what you do when you get you’re tenth big deal? Or maybe I should keep my money in the bank, but i like my money where I can see it, in my closet. Come on, you guys know, I get beat down if I flex and I get beat down if I don’t. MJB ACCOMPLICE was apart of their summer collection and I won’t lie, this powder, I want it, I got it.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Hi boys and girls, if you are a manorhave a man in your life then you would know that a men need nice underwear for the same reason woman need a bar, for comfort, support, don’t want anything popping out. I’ve also noticed that I personally feel a lot more attractive when I am in a nice pair of comfy but good looking undies. I have talked about DailyJocks before and how they have a massive collection in every style for everyone. The DailyJocks Monthly Underwear Club is the best way to discover men’s underwear. Every month, we choose from a curated selection of underwear from international designer brands and send you a pair in your size and preferred style. It’s like a monthly surprise of the best underwear around. ↖️CLICK THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!
⏯PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!! kaminreallife
I have been with Daily Jocks for two years now and my underwear collection has grown and grown and I have found myself trying different styles out that I would typically try, especially if it happens to be a mystery item in my box.
➡️ The Underwear Club is $20.00US per month but they have a promo where if you sign up your first month is only 10$ (no not a commission for me, just a deal for you) and what a deal it issince 1 pair of underwear is valued up to $40.00
It’s so easy to do it, and I love, love, love how they do the layout ➡️ you choose if you want, briefs, jockstrap, boxer briefs or random! Then you get to choose another style that you would like from the same categories (I really recommend trying random for one choice since, it will introduce you to new undies you wouldn’t think you like and trust me, your friend will thank you for the support!) then you choose your size which I’m pretty sure we all know our underwear size! (you even get your waist sized to inches in that helps) Simple no? I think so!
Not to mention the fact that you can also buy single pairs of underwear on the site, also work out clothes, swim wear, even clothing. If you are looking for that little something extra in your wardrobe? If it’s shirts, shorts, socks, or even underwear, you can find something a bit more stand-out at DailyJocks. For those athlete types, we’ve got all-star colour palettes to set you apart from the other buffs in the gym.

Hey boys and girls, I’m that type of person that when I love someone and their in pain – I feel completely off, I know that I need to take care of my life before I come running to help others, and you’ve always taught me this. It’s always okay to need somebody to help you or to lean on, as long as you don’t give up! so many things are going to unbelievable in my life! I couldn’t be more happy! I’m very excited to talk about this product because it will be in the spring giveaway, which the end date was given in my previous post (COVETED TOP 5 : NARS | M X T C) I like this! hiding the easy way to win this amazing set, and I can promise of this items you wouldn’t be able to get if it wasn’t for this fully partnered and sponsored giveaway so there are some rules, and without saying – you know where you’ll find them.
➡️ Just in case you didn’t know the same woman who invented ZIIP Beauty also came out with the same to a very exspensive skin care line, for example the Serum C is $200.00US and found wherever exspensive skin care is sold! I was sent two bottles on for me, and one for the giveaway and after just one use – wow.
GIVEAWAY SIDE NOTE ➡️ if you think that you found the clues and the end day, and what you have to do to enter the giveaway just sent me a DM on Instagram and I will let you know if you’re correct. Even if you’re not, you will still be entered +1 but if you are right you’ll get you will be entered +5
When Melanie Simon began using this potent, highly concentrated, highly stabilized vitamin C serum on her clients, she saw results she had never seen before. Pores tightened, fine lines vanished, redness subsided, skin tone brightened, and the glow was surreal. Clients started asking to take home this magic in a bottle, so Melanie prepared take-home potions and stamped a C on them with her wax seal.
Great for all skin types, vitamin C is the star ingredient because of its ability to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage. Plus, unlike most vitamin C products, Melanie’s is incredibly stable and can withstand light and air exposure. That’s why it’s safe and activeeven in its clear bottle.
➡️ START WITH A DRY CANVAS Wash your face, pat dry. If you use toners and thin serums, apply those, and let them dry first. Now it’s Serum C time.
➡️ APPLY 5 TO 10 DROPS OF SERUM C Basically, you want to use enough so that you can cover your entire face and neck. Lightly sweep Serum C around your face and up the neck, avoiding the eye area.
➡️ WAIT 5 TO 10 MINUTES Serum C works wonders, but it doesn’t play nicely with other active skincare ingredients. Give it time alone to do its job and create a glaze on your skin. You’ll know when it’s time to move on, because Serum C will no longer feel slippery to the touch. I like to wait the full 10 minutes. I make a cup of tea, and get my clothes ready for the day. What would you do in these 10 minutes?
➡️ CONTINUE YOUR ROUTINE For some people, Serum C is the last step in their skincare routine. If your skin needs more hydration, layer on your other products, always applying from thinnest to thickest.
This truly was a game changer in the terms of the strength of the product and what it does for my skin, this one bottle took the place of almost 4 jars and bottles, truly it is only my second day using this product but the results you see fast, and you know they will last.
It helps with everything that I am currently looking for from my skin care right now, and I’m not going too lie I kind of stopped using my ZIIP for no other reason then I’m just so busy and tired at night doing the entire skin routine plus the skin would be like 20 minutes which really isn’t that bad if you think about for skin that’s well, perfect. I need to get back to that for sure.
I’m excited for who ever wins the giveaway just to receive this one product! So good luck and don’t forget all you need to know is in past posts. If you can read between the lines you’re golden. I’m also capping it at 5 people. so they have a really good chance to win!
What is cookin’ good lookin’ welcome back to MAKEUPxTHECITY (MXTC BEAUTY) yes, you may have noticed that I’ve previously started changing names, traveling more and organizing some pretty cool things with some amazing brands and companies, so at this point I can say, I used to have a dream of a makeup line but I jumped into it way to fast and wanted to much to soon and it, it just didn’t work and wasn’t branded right, so I’m now working with a partner for MXTC BEAUTY and the first thing will be launch is the ultimate face(s) brush set, which is three brushes with iconic charcoal fibers that will change the way you do your entire base with only three brushes that you will use for, concealer, foundation, primer, powder(s), contour, highlight, skin care if you want one of the biggest things is the forth item that comes inside the package that allows you to change between only the three brushes and not have carry any product over, birthing the only face base set from MXTC BEAUTY, I am going to be sending these out in PR before I even tell a retailer and a launch date because I want word of mouth to travel globally. Permanently infused with Charcoal powder. Paraben and sulfate free. Brushes stay fresher for longer and more importantly are anti-bacterial ➡️ it’s also the as mentioned above the fourth item within that will change and I mean change your base routine also just the unique brush cute, the length of the beautiful handles, so much more – I also want to say thank you to Cosmetco Company and TrustPilot for helping to make my vision a reality and CROWN Brushes for sitting down with me and really showing me the ropes! Ok so that’s my little news! Let’s move on to E.L.F and drugstore products!
So I’ve found that E.L.F has came out with products that, well, could be considered DUPESbut from my research some, and I mean some of them E.L.F actually came out first, also – did you know our favourite luxe brands are actually inflated prices of up to 70% – yikes. If you check the ingredients list you will find a lot of the items of the high end list and of E.L.F are the same. I’ve picked three items from E.L.F that I think are just to good to be true for the items and complete threats. E.L.F came to play, and they are not stopping and why would they. Why should they?.
Item one is clear and obvious, E.L.F Camo Concealer which is such a killer concealer, I littler only use a concealer under my eyes blended down to around my nose, and a vegan setting powder that just melts into the skin and melts into the concealer. The intense pigmentation is full coverage, but won’t settle into fine lines, courtesy of its oil-balancing formula that leaves behind a full matte finish so make sure that you lay down moisturizer and a good primer!
➡️ I said that I am done with the company Tarte, I’ve made it very, very clear that I did not wish to work with them anymore, buuuut I have to bring attention to the fact that E.L.F Camo Concealer and Tarte Shapetape are almost one the same – Tarte finish in my eyes is actually less then Eyes Lip Face (E.L.F) I love the matte finish and the extreme coverage. I will actually be showing both wanders and you will see they are identical➡️ which is bananas to me! It does leaves a long lasting, velvety matte finish that looks almost airbrushed. I even tried it under my eyes, where I tend not to use any matte products, and it was still good. I mean, I do like something a lot dewier for that area, but it isn’t at all unflattering and doesn’t settle into the lines.
SIDE NOTE ➡️ E.L.F is actually labeled as the best budget concealer all the luxury ingredients for only $5.00 ($6.00 in Canada) remember when I said luxe brands mark up also 70% please always remember that but also, don’t be running to a dollar store saying Kam told me too!
With this concealer you can’t go wrong for the price, for the packaging and for the fact that it works, and it works good, and the fact that if you try to find it right now it’s pretty much sold out almost everywhere! They do re-stock them quickly but you have to go or recheck as much as you can and it would be the same as my other two items on the list!
The next item is E.L.F Booster Drops for skin care to custom create your own regime or to add and use as serum! personally I like to add it right to my skin in a patting motion so that it protects against any feature break outs, I don’t have acne or breakouts as it stands but I love the smell of tea tree oil, zinc, which hazel and all the other none chemical ingredients! but guess who came out with very similar if not the same items COVER FX also lets not forget COVER FX used to be sold in drug stores to help people with problem skin and personally I feel as if they sold out, they were already a million(s) dollar company so I don’t get why but that’s how it works I guess.
There are many benefits to a booster serum, and it differs from your regular serum by giving you faster results. The ingredients are concentrated in larger amounts, which gives you a “boost” in outcomes. You typically use three to four drops on your face, and you can use it with a combination of other serums and lotions in a multiple-step skincare routine, delivering a series of restorative ingredients that will get your complexion to look its best. But seeing how it’s such an effective product, small viles usually cost anywhere between $30-$100 or more, which isn’t easily accessible to beauty lovers on a smaller budget. Seeing that gap in need, E.L.F stepped in with their own version. E.L.F Booster Drops cost under or exactly $11.00.
➡️ Take a minute to check this website out, not only for E.L.F but for all brands, know what it is that you are putting on your face! www.skincarisma.com
The next item is one that SMASHBOX had on shelves for quite some time and that would be there primer water, but it doesn’t do all the things that E.L.F has created for their primer water, matte, hydration, glow, clean and fresh and the list goes on. I love this one from E.L.F more then then SMASHBOX because it actually, and I mean actually works! As it dries down it becomes a tacky good matte but not moister sucking primer and trust me, we all know my love for SMASHBOX and how much the brand has had my back and helped me so much within my career but I can’t lie, E.L.F figured something out that SMASHBOX just, well couldn’t and maybe its because the one from SMASHBOX is a primer water and a setting spray from E.L.F it would be only a primer.
Sunday, and it’s a never ending thought that wakes me up from a dead sleep and the gears in my mind start spinning and I find myself in front of a computer, but it’s nothing to a point that I need to start to even talk about it really bring it up – what’s done is done and the dust has settled and I used to put on a show until I open my eyes and found myself in the life I always meant to be living, I guess, what I am trying to say is, no dream is to big to fight for and it’s never to late to change! But even nightmare needs influence and when you can correctly identify it and you don’t get rid of it, you are only letting yourself down. Artis PalmBrush, this little small wonder, could it be the one brush to actually give you a airbrushed look with any powder?
➡️ Artis is known more for being the luxury base brush company sold within the beauty industry but there is a lot more then just the price tag, I guess what I am trying to say is you are not just paying for a name here. Artis does really have PR list that they send out items to on the regular, but when they do sent out items it’s, an experience to say the least. I absouloutly looove using Artis for the base and the skin care set designed to use with well…skin care! It brings a wonderful and luxury experience for clients and also for yourself.
I’m not here to talk about all of the brushes per say, I’m here to talk about The Palm Brush Elite and The Palm Brush Elite Mini at that! I never really gave them a chance because and yes, Artis was the first company to create any type of brush of this design and I am talking about the full range, there are so many copies out there, well I wouldn’t say copies with this brand but I tried some of these brushes that were sent to me for consideration from Eloise Beauty and they were just very hard to use and as a man it personally reminded me of when I’ve gone for a straight razor shave how they use that dense brush to swirl and apply the cream to the face – these are the brushes hereif you are interested in checking them out.
The Palm Brush Elite Mini is just so amazing if you want full coverage from your compact power and also undetectable airbrush look to your skin, I really do challenge you to try this brush out because it will change your makeup game it’s even good for liquid and cream products but I only now use powder for my face and it’s effortless. In no way is it hard to hold, they have a built in finger groove for more comfort while applying makeup which is a plus. You can use a promo code at check out ➡️ BETTERBEAUTY for 10% your purchase and hey I know it’s only 10% off a $90.00 tiny little brush – but still it’s all savings at the end of the day.
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Code provided was by Artis and is NOT a commission base code
They even now have little draw string bags for your Artis brushes to keep them clean and they fit so perfectly inside of the second to smallest bag on the website so if you already own it, you should consider grabbing one of those bags to keep the product in good shape and keep it clean between use.
With the Palm Brush Mini, you hold the entire brush in the palm of your hand with your fingers and move it gently across your face. This design includes a grip-pad encircling the brush, and finger-indent on top for improved stability and control when applying and blending product. The double oval design and unique bundle orientation is exclusively patented by Artis, and CosmeFibre® is trademarked.
Hey good lookin; yes you! Don’t forget to check out yesterdays post➡️ DYNAMIC DUO | M X T C and go take a look at my social and DM me if you have any questions!
What’s going on boys and girls, if you’re like me, you’re happy the weekend is here, I always was the type to work Monday till Friday and typically, other then emails – the weekends are mine! So every Friday I’m going to start ‘TGIF’ which will feature weekend makeup, tips, fun city events and everything in between! I like the idea of consistency and coming up with little posts for everyone – but remember, drink responsibly and be mature if you’re going to be going out this weekend!
When it comes to weekends and playing your makeup up a lot of the times it’s as simple as just adding some pretty glitter right to the center of your lid especially if you’re wearing a basic neutral look.SMASHBOX has amazing little cover shot palettes which are absouloutly the perfect size to keep in your purse, back pocket or wallet. Recently I was sent a cover shot vault, and they have a cover shot of just pigmented glitter, it is absouloutly what you need to take the look to the next level ➡️ you can take a look at bold glitterright here.
There is also Stila Magnificent Metals they’re rather well pigmented and opaque. You will love the super shiny effect, they look like liquid metal on the eyelids. With the glitter, the finish can quickly look crumbly and not very elegant. But here, it’s not the case, the glitter particles are fine and very pretty. I just adore this finish. I love the fact that they’re pigmented, they’re not just glitter, they provide color as well. One of the facts about them that makes them good for going out, or just going to dinner is they’re long-lasting so they aren’t going anywhere.
Don’t forget to bring a touch up powder or blotting compact! it’s important to make sure you don’t look like you’ve already had your makeup on for a full work day, if you do have the time, go home and shower. The city life can be lives very very fast!
THE CITY (TORONTO) ➡️ EVENTS ➡️
The Village of Yorkville Park will be transformed into a glittering display of ice sculptures inspired by the Toronto Film Industry. This annual event supports the Heart & Stroke Foundation and features live carving, prize packages, and vendors. This is actually so much fun, I went last year and was just memorized by what these men and woman could do with ice! This is a free event for all ages, so family appropriate.
Time ➡️ (Saturday) 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM Location ➡️ Village of Yorkville Park – 115 Cumberland St., Toronto ON, M5R 1A6
