Hi guys and girls, what’s going on! Remember before I was talking about not being able to get to all of my PR boxes due to moving and all the other exciting thing, well I opened the new collaboration between Gigi Hadid and Maybelline New York so I thought mind as well go with it, this collection is not out to the public and was to be open by a certain date (two (2) weeks ago) I also have some pretty crazy but sad new coming up in a week or so, so you can expect a stand alone post regarding that! my website is also pretty much done now we are just working on headers and downloading content and selling spaces to advertisers so that they can be active ads constant and changeable by the company like you see with the too faced ‘product of the month’ also I don’t know if anyone has realised but its new products sold a week earlier which is pretty cool!

WEST_COAST_COLLECTION2

It’s finally here: a flat lay of the open Jetsetter makeup palette that Gigi Hadid has created for her Maybelline collaboration. The California-born model loves a natural look, so it’s no surprise that everything in this all-in-one palette is very wearable. According to the IG post, the palette is packed with eyeshadow, concealer, blush, bronzer, highlighter, mascara, lip balm, and brushes – and it’s still under $45

SIDE NOTE ➡️ this collection isn’t available in Canada as of now and I’m not going to add the date its to drop because, its said to be dropping early as it did most places.

The only downside? It appears that the palette comes with two concealer shades that will only work on light to medium skin tones, leaving a large portion of individuals with shades they simply can’t use. No official word yet on shades, or any other details about the palette.

This is a limited edition collection of course, with beautiful shades, typical name and luxury packaging for the Maybelline brand and According to the model, the collection is ‘for the people who are maybe intimidated to do full glam every day.’ And while the collection is divided into East Coast and West Coast capsules – Gigi encourages shoppers to mix and match everything the way she herself does.

The fiber mascara is one of the most have product I think and let me just say, if this works wonders on my arm hairs I can only imagine what it would do to the actual eyelashes – Apparently, this double-sided product was previously only available in Japan, and it’s pretty darn fun to use. First, you apply a coat of mascara as usual, then you brush on the tiny white fibers encased in the opposite end of the tube, which build up your natural lashes before you seal them in with another coat of the mascara. I can see why this collection is so sought after plus the PR package was absolutely beautiful in its own rights. 

EAST_COAST_COLLECTION.png

Gigi insisted that she relies on this stuff in lieu of individual false lashes. I don’t entirely believe this, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is a very good, non-clumpy mascara.

I wonder if the hype behind this is as it should because from what I have in front of me isn’t anything to go crazy over at all, its kinda, well not very pigmented and very powdery with a lot of fall out sadly, the lipsticks are typical Maybelline formulation and the mini brushes are already in the garbage. I cant wait to see what you guys have to say or think, is it mostly about a name? or other then the already boosted about mascara from me, am I being to harsh to expect more from the drugstore brand!

FOUNDATION FIGHT – NARS vs. SMASHBOX COSMETICS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

vichyblogad

What’s up makeupandthecity, if you saw my last two PR review’s with NARS (NARS – Velvet Matte Foundation Stick / Elephant in the blog | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) and SMASHBOX (SMASHBOX – STUDIO SKIN SHAPING FOUNDATION STICK | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) I thought to myself that, they are both similar in the fact that they are stick foundations double sided with unique ends (blender sponge or contour shadeI have tested both one on set and at home and one just at home to keep the playing field fair I wont say which was taken to set.

So – I will brush up on more facts about each item and then give my opinion but in the end it will be for you too decide for yourself which company came out on top.

SBXshapestickplusfoundationapproved

Both of the products give a medium buildable coverage but with the NARS I wouldn’t say that you need to go back into the skin and reapply product in any area, as you would do with SMASHBOX for sure, the latex and anti-bacterial blender on the NARS foundation stick is absouloutly genius and to make it anti-bacterial was even smarter (replacement blenders for the NARS foundation stick are only $6.00US) As most of NARS complexion products it’s finish is matte, where SMASHBOX likes to give the more natural finish, SMASHBOX is oil-free but it seems to be that as you wear throughout the day it becomes patchy and oil appears to show due to a wax that they use in the product I believe so there have been times that I wish that SMASHBOX did have a sponge component to re-buff the product into the skin mid-day.

If we are being honest ➡️ I am not much of a fan of a cream contour and find the contour side to break off very effortlessly with SMASHBOX, when you use SMASHBOX be prepared to still need to go in with a concealer for certain area where as with NARS I found that you didn’t really need to go in with a concealer which is a huge plus for me being a guy I don’t want everyone to be able to tell that I have makeup on my face. I’ve always found NARS to be a little more seamless with there products and do active case studies with men and woman but SMASHBOX creates and tests their products at SMASHBOX STUDIOSso I guess it would come down to, do you like the idea of active case studies where a product is judged and complaints and nice comments are used to fix if need be, or have a team who have been working behind the lens, and a MUA for years tell you something is perfect to their level of standards.

NARS-Velvet-Matte-Foundation-Stick-2017

NARS – What it does ➡️
This all-in-one matte foundation stick and pro tool offers all-over coverage or touch-ups on-the-go. Its soft-matte finish and creamy, blendable texture layers easily for medium to buildable coverage. Matte Rebound Powders enhance the glide and comfort of wear, while mattifying the look of skin. Elastomer micro beads provide extreme flexibility and elasticity to help prevent creasing by adapting to movement without settling into lines or wrinkles. Ginger root extract and vitamins A, C, and E support natural antioxidant protection and defend skin from environmental damages while helping to improve the appearance of smoothness and evenness. The foundation can be applied multiple ways: with fingertips, directly from the stick, or with the included removable Touch-Up Blender, to create various effects.

SMASHBOX – What it does ➡️
This is an all-in-one stick that gives you coverage and sculpting on the quick. The foundation side gives you medium, buildable coverage with smooth blendability and a natural-looking finish. Use the soft contour side for a perfectly coordinated contour shade that adds dimension in seconds, while it shapes and sculpts with the angled tip. Each end delivers lasting coverage that will not settle into pores or fine lines while allowing color to stay true. Both formulas moisturize the complexion, and offer coverage that stays sweat-, humidity-, and water-resistant.

I personally think its a no brainer which is the better product and what you will use more often! I mean, who wouldn’t want an anti-bacterial mini beauty blender added to the end of their foundation stick.

⭐NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick ➡️ $45.00US for 0.31 oz/ 9 g
Smashbox Studio Skin Face Shaping Foundation Stick ➡️ $42.00US for 0.26 oz/ 7.5 g Foundation, 0.14 oz/ 4.25 g Soft Contour

SMASHBOX – STUDIO SKIN SHAPING FOUNDATION STICK | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi friends!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

Good morning guys, and, well happy Monday! it’s come to my attention that my link landing pages only work via Safari via computer, for some reason iPad, or on your mobile will not accept it so that should be fixed by the following Wednesday!

Stick foundation are more popular then I thought, yesterday I wrote about NARS foundation stick which you can check out right here ➡️ NARS – Velvet Matte Foundation Stick / Elephant in the blog | MAKEUPANDTHECITY and with the innovation of having the washable, anti-bacterial and replaceable mini Beauty Blender feel sponge on the end I figured today we’d look at SMASHBOX – STUDIO SKIN SHAPING FOUNDATION STICK which has a full size stick foundation and the complimentary contour shade on the other side, and since they are both around the same price, same concepts with different unique dual sides.

vichyblogad

After I am done the review for SMASHBOX – STUDIO SKIN SHAPING FOUNDATION STICK I will bring back FOUNDATION FIGHT! and put them under tests and see which brand (product) comes out on top!

SMASHBOX – STUDIO SKIN SHAPING FOUNDATION STICK is a double-ended, face-shaping foundation stick with a full-sized foundation on one side and a complementary soft contour shade on the other, similar to there step-by-step contour sticks in the shade, uh, well ‘contour’ just matched to the skin tone of the foundation but the contour side does the same blendability, scent, and feel as the ‘contour’ shade from the trio.

SBXshapestickplusfoundationapproved2

SIDE NOTE ➡️ find your shade by matching the foundation side to your skin tone (not the contour side) which I would think my makeupandthecity family would know but I still think for anyone new to makeup it’s worth saying.

This is an all-in-one stick that gives you coverage and sculpting very quick. The foundation side gives you medium, buildable coverage with smooth blendability and a natural-looking finish. Use the soft contour side for a perfectly coordinated contour shade that adds dimension in seconds, while it shapes and sculpts with the angled tip. Each end delivers lasting coverage that will not settle into pores or fine lines while allowing color to stay true. Both formulas moisturize the complexion, and offer coverage that stays sweat, humidity, and water-resistant ➡️ I will say that half way I did start to notice that it started to become a little patchy and there was quite a bit of oil that came to surface and I don’t mean oil from my skin (I wish I had a nice hidden little blender hmm) I mean oil from maybe the wax in the product. The contour shade to the foundation shade is absouloutly a wonderful pairing which I could even see just from opening both sides.

SMASHBOX – STUDIO SKIN SHAPING FOUNDATION STICK is created for all skin types, and is formulated without ➡️ Parabens ➡️ Phthalates. This product is cruelty-free and free of sodium lauryl sulfates ➡️ oil ➡️ fragrance, and alcohol.

FROM SMASHBOX TO YOU ➡️ Live for lipstick? Won’t pose without primer? Smashbox is a beauty brand born in an L.A. photo studio. Their cruelty-free makeup is made to stand up to hot lights, long days, and real life – so you look good in any light and every photo.

I’m going to get this off my chest and address this to you, and you know who you are, to take the time out of your day too attempt to attack me, show one you’re assumed level of intelligence, and two you’re inability to move on – I will admit that I haven’t always been the best person in the world but thankfully I was able to learn from my mistakes and move on with my life, I’ve always said that it impossible for me to go back and fix the mistakes that I have made, but I can make things right going forward. Instead of attempting to find ways to attack me or my man, if it wasn’t for me you’d still be exactly where you were when I came into your life, keeping PG, and real, thank you, thank you for giving me the drive to live better, fight harder, and love freely, and more importantly thank you for taking the time to even try to hurt me as I don’t even think about you anymore – thank you for showing me that I always did, and still keep winning.

To makeupandthecity, be stronger then hate, take the chance and love – if someone wants to try to use their free time to bring you down because they have had a bad day and feel worse when they look in the mirror just think to yourself ‘damn I wish I had that much free time still’

Now let’s get to the review shall we ➡️ NARS – Velvet Matte Foundation Stick isn’t extremely new of a product but after the company decided too sell in China meaning that they had to take away the fact of being cruelty-free – I was on the fence about wanting to continue my relationship with NARS, assuming that what they did was for money, and not considering the alternative reasons.

It’s one-of-a-kind, versatile matte foundation stick with a built-in, touch-up blender for all over coverage or touch-ups on-the-go. I have to say the built in blender is absouloutly amazing and if you spray a little setting spray on it to make it a little moist it applies even better. It’s a latex-free sponge designed specifically for use with the Velvet Matte Foundation Stick – it is washable, and anti-bacterial.

NARS-Velvet-Matte-Foundation-Stick-2017

It has medium to full coverage and is traceless which I really, really like comparable to HOURGLASS Vanish Foundation Stick but completely more product and function. It’s compatible with almost every skin type ➡️ ✔ Sensitive ✔ Normal ✔ Dry ✔ Combination ✔ Oily. As mentioned above it does have a matte finish and nicely controls oil. It has matte rebound powders that enhance the glide and comfort of wear, while mattifying the look of skin. Elastomer micro beads provide extreme flexibility and elasticity to help prevent creasing by adapting to movement without settling into lines or wrinkles. Ginger root extract and vitamins A, C, and E support natural antioxidant protection and defend skin from environmental damages while helping to improve the appearance of smoothness and evenness.

NEW PR LIST ➡️ GLOSSIER COSMETICS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY – PART TWO (2)

Morning friends!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!

So my MacBook with the damn sensitive touch bar, is well, sensitive to touch (blonde moment) and as I was writing yesterday finishing up my post about Glossier I accidently hit something that submitted my post so what better time to say it was intentional for a part two (2) ALSO if you read my monthly favourites which I’m a total fool for not keepin’ up with that, last night me and my fiancé went too a party and I lost my Juste un Clou bracelet by Cartier yes that is a 10k bracelet so I ordered a new one and it wont be here until the 29th of November – yes I understand that it’s really just a bent nail around your wrist but its what it symbolised too me and why it was so important. Moral of the story is don’t drink – shut up and dance with me!

As I mentioned in part one (1) every year I do five (5) companies to watch in that year, that I believe will be extremely successful ➡️ Five (5) COSMETIC / BEAUTY companies to watch in 2017  and in 2018 Glossier Cosmetics already with massive success will be on the list!

FROM THE COMPANY TO YOU ➡️ Here, you’ll learn a little bit more about our beauty product philosophy. Some background: Glossier Cosmetics was created by a group of beauty editors that have (literally) tried everything out there and know what works. We painstakingly develop the best formulas with real-life usage in mind, and put them in the chicest packaging that won’t cost you half a paycheck. We have created our entire lineup to work together to make you look and feel your best – the only thing you need are your fingertips (or favourite makeup brushes). So even if you’re new to the idea of a beauty regimen, or you’re just someone looking to make a few upgrades, we’re here for that. Think of Glossier’s beauty products as the skincare essentials you need, plus makeup you’ll actually use. Thanks for joining us at makeupandthecity.

⭐ Wowder plus the Wowder Brush ⭐ can the name of this magic powder be anymore clever? wow + powder = wowder, it’s so Glossier – the more I experience the more I love the company, Honestly most powders you know mask skin’s texture with a 2-D effect and sop up oil into a cakey film that settles into fine lines. Wowder isn’t just skin-colored dust, so set your expectations high: it cuts shine, sets makeup, and blurs the appearance of pores. It’s the airiest formula possible, developed right alongside the suspiciously soft, perfectly dense Wowder Brush for targeted application. For any of my set MUA (makeup artist) out there, this will be your best friend on set and in print work, hell, even to take a perfect selfie. Together they leave skin with a glowing matte-not-flat finish – with zero white chalkiness, even under bright flash. In three adaptable shades, with pigment levels high enough to help Wowder go undetected on skin but not affect your skin tone. I am really impressed with how lightweight the powder feels on my face. I usually use the Tarte setting powder but I would have to say that Wowder really is a better fit. I use a really hydrating concealer that needs to be set with powder and it set it instantaneously and it feels like nothings on my face. It also blurred out my oiliness and doesn’t look cakey at all, and that’s a massive plus.

WowderDuo_02accepted

➡️ Diamond Powder Light-reflecting particles that counteract the flat effect of most powders. ➡️ Kaolin Clay Soft and incredibly fine, it absorbs oil but vanishes into skin (instead of sitting and caking on top). ➡️ Vitamin E Gives Wowder its silky, non-drying texture.

hypoallergenic ➡️ dermatologist tested ➡️ talc free ➡️  paraben free ➡️ fragrance free ➡️ vegan and cruelty free.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ you can buy Wowder alone, and the Wowder Brush separately as well but to save a pretty penny, wait, aren’t pennies obsolete now, oh sorry,  you can buy them together in a set.

⭐BOY BROW ⭐all-in-one brow fluffer, filler, and shaper – all brow needs have been considered to create THE brow product: one to thicken, fill in, and groom brows into place. The creamy wax formula is inspired by traditional hair pomade for soft, flexible hold that doesn’t stiffen or flake. If you’re like me also and have light eyebrows but like them to be darker and don’t always have the time to make an appointment to get them tinted this will become your go to product to darken your brow hair.

BoyBrow_Carousel_02.jpg

➡️ Beeswax and Carnauba Wax Natural waxes that hold hairs in place without stiffness. ➡️ Oleic Acid An emollient derived from olive oil that nourishes and moisturizes. ➡️ Lecithin A natural fatty substance that adds a silky, smooth texture and a subtle sheen. ➡️ Atelocollagen A collagen derivative that helps condition and strengthen the hair fiber.

COMPLEXTION PRODUCTS FROM GLOSSIER COSMETICS ➡️

⭐Stretch Concealer⭐ let me just say, wow, I was completely blown away from this product, most concealers on the market will dry down and move around, or go cakey or crack and dry, into a different shade then you bought (oxidized with the air, before you buy any concealer put a larch swatch on the back of your hand and give sixty (60) seconds to see turn color) Stretch Concealer is a new type of concealer with elastic micro waxes that move with your face instead of caking on top of it, and nourishing oils that give a dewy, glowing finish.

It’s buildable formula covers everything from dark circles to redness and blemishes. In five (5) shades developed to enhance, brighten, and most importantly – completely disappear into the widest range of skin tones. What makes Stretch special? Beeswax and Microcrystalline Wax ➡️ Give concealer a super elastic consistency which allows it to move with your expressions, not stiffen and cake. Avocado & Jojoba Oil ➡️ Nourish skin, prevent water loss, and give a natural dewy finish. Cocoa Butter ➡️A natural fat full of the good stuff that promotes skin elasticity and suppleness. Adaptable Mineral Pigments ➡️ Merge seamlessly with the widest range of skin tones for natural-looking coverage.

hypoallergenic ➡️ dermatologist-tested ➡️ ophthalmologist tested ➡️  non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) ➡️  paraben free ➡️  fragrance free and cruelty free.

GLOSSIERCONCEALERPROMO

PRO TIP ➡️ to create a matte finish dust a small amount of translucent powder over the area Stretch Concealer was applied using a small fluffy eyeshadow blending brush, got you covered, literally.

⭐Perfecting Skin Tint⭐ More skin, less makeup. In the land between bare skin and makeup, makeup exists the imperceptible wash of color that is our Perfecting Skin Tint. What does it do? Evens out discoloration and leaves your face looking toned, smooth, and dewy. The breathable, ultra thin formula auto-fits to skin, making application as simple as throwing on moisturizer. What won’t it do? Hide your freckles, spackle your pores, or erase any other evidence that you are, in fact, a real human being. You are able to build this up to medium coverage in a snap, just allow the Skin Tint to dry and then go back over in areas you would like to see more coverage! With Diamond Powder ➡️ Gives a brightening and blurring effect, while minimizing the appearance of pores. Glycerin ➡️ Helps skin attract and retain moisture.

SO – it’s no secret that as the weather starts to go into the minus, and the harsh winds are beating the crap out of our skin, you need a good hydration to correct the damages done by winter, almost every time TARTE sends me a PR package they include the HYDRATION VACATION SET which gives you all you need to fight back against the cold and fight for perfect skin.

It’s a travel-friendly set of four hydrating skin care products that are enriched with TARTE’s antioxidant Rainforest of the Sea™ complex. It locks in moisture and makes sure that that harsh winter won’t suck the life out of your skin. Do keep in mind that this set is travel size products (full size products are available) but this set will last, and last.
