FIRST OFF I need to say a massive thank you to my affiliations, PA, contacts, and most importantly you guys! CAN you believe we are up for the ‘best in beauty’ award. First my wordpress account goes gold and now this, I imagined this but I was distant almost non-existent so from whatever of a heart I have left, thanks guys! By the way if you (or) anyone you know if looking for a paid writing position please tell them to shoot an email too ➡️  kevinmakeupandthecity@gmail.com

Ok, so first off I’m sure we all know the brand Artis brushes by now right? amazing design – revolutionary fiber hairs – SO when working on set for publication credits Artis will be the only makeup brush you will see me sporting for a year which bring me back to this post if you’ve seen it beauty news first ➡️ ARTIS BRUSH getting ready to launch Fluenta Collection at Holt Rentrew, which will be Artis first retail partner in Canada.beauty news first ➡️ ARTIS BRUSH getting ready to launch Fluenta Collection at Holt Rentrew, which will be Artis first retail partner in Canada. Check it out.

Secondly, DiorSKIN FOREVER UNDERCOVER concealer – its an amazing concealer with amazing coverage but the fairest shade isn’t light enough sadly but it can still be used to add warmth to your face in areas you need it.

Diorskin Forever Undercover Concealer has a Fresh Matte finish and delivers full cover, crease-proof concealing in one swipe. I’m not too sure about the massive coverage claims – I love Dior and LVMH but as amazing of a concealer this is I would love to slap who ever sits there and makes product descriptions, I mean, yeah.. I get this is what you want but still saying untrue claims.

M·A·C ‘ REINVENTS ‘ THE WHEEL and pisses me off | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

hey makeupandthecity,

⬅️SMASH THAT FOLOW BUTTON!

I'm sorry M·A·C but I'm coming for you and the company with this one, how dumb of a product - its one thing to disappear off the map of even coming out with new products but then to blast PR with the Rollerwheel Liquid Liner - is kinda crazy, it's legit 2017 you're about ten (10) years too late, there are four (4) year old BOYS who have perfected the liquid liner and the wing.
If you're wondering what happen to me at the Toronto M·A·C offices – I've wondered for a very long time if I should tell the story of – what this disgusting mirror on the ceiling guy asked from me before he would put me on M·A·C PR list for Canada – when I was already on the USA on – I just thought it would be cool too see how much a company that started in a kitchen in Toronto had advanced so much but due to being owned 66.9% Estée Lauder Companies means keep your mouth shut or loose your pretty pay check.

Moving on, to what this hamster pizza cutter is supposed to do it's supposed to make applying eyeliner game changing but for me, and many. many other influencers it's just an attempt to shake up the makeup game but to me it's more proof that there is no new innovation only reinvention, I'm sure some of you will think this review is harsh or childish but I just know far to much about makeup art cosmetics stylized M·A·C – Like "training wheels" for liquid lining, M·A·C introduces our new Rollerwheel Liquid Liner. The ground breaking spinning disc applicator absorbs the perfect amount of product to provide a continuous, smooth, even stroke of colour. Skinny-lined and defined, a winged effect or a bold geometric look – let the rolling applicator do all the work for the perfect liquid line, every time.

This time around since I am kinda a hater I will leave it at that, show my teeth and allow you to judge as you will anyways. By the way, you can buy it right now online – or wait till September to buy it in stores.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ My opinions expressed about M·A·C does NOT represent my feelings of Estée Lauder Companies – there is no reason at all I can't be honest. it'll be ok.

NETFLIX PRESENTS : DEATH NOTE | FULL REVIEW / EXCLUSIVE NEWS / RELEASE CHANGES

Light Turner, a bright student who stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Light decides to launch a secret crusade to rid the streets of criminals. Soon, the student-turned-vigilante finds himself pursued by a famous detective known only by the alias L.

The movie is an extremely condensed version of the battle of wills between the keeper of the Death Note, Light Turner, and L, a police detective determined to unmask Light as the serial killer known as Kira. With the Death Note, Light can kill anyone as long as he knows their face and their name. For most of the movie, L hides both from his target. Unfortunately, both of the leading actors are the biggest weakness in this film. While Nat Wolff is only 22, he seems much older than the teenager he portrays on screen and his goofy facial expressions undercut Light’s dramatic moments. Similarly, Lakeith Stanfield’s antics as L are so over-the-top that they border on parody. It’s incredibly difficult to take either man seriously in their respective roles.
Fortunately, Wingard nailed the casting of Willem Dafoe as the voice of Ryuk, the demon who sent the Death Note to Light. Dafoe absolutely devours the role and chews the surrounding scenery, but he is so entertaining that he only enhances the film. Wingard wisely kept most of Ryuk’s appearances in shadows, and Ryuk’s creepy visage gave him a unique presence in the movie. He really did look like a manga demon who came to life.

TO ME it seems almost as if a perfect illusion of someone true love and someone who loves someone only for what they have or don’t – those three words had the power to change the mind and tone, so I guess Death Note adds more teenage melodrama and condenses the story of the original manga in a way that isn’t always satisfying to watch. While the leads falter, the supporting cast steps up in a big way to keep their parts in the movie grounded and entertaining. Willem Dafoe’s Ryuk was an absolutely inspired piece of casting, and he easily carried his scenes. If there is a sequel, bringing him back as Ryuk is a must.

RESOLVED ➡️ Sadly due to changes and issues with licensing death note by Netflix will no longer air on the 25th of August but now the 26th at 1:00am worldwide. Exclusively the planning director of Netflix will email me any changes in time (if) sorry guys.

KILLING YOURSELF FOR LESS THEN MINIMUM WAGE | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi makeupandthecity,

So before we begin – STILL the winner of the MacBook giveaway partnered with xtrememac has yet to be claimed, and he’s actively blogging so I don’t get what the issue would be; I will reload subscribers and have a back up winner just, just, in case I message him again and he answers. Same page? good.

I have been very busy with life and TIFF (TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL) is approaching so damn fast! Which is so crazy, yes it’s a lot of media and publicity but I’ve wanted to work TIFF for years and thank you to my amazing company I work for! I have also come to learn there isn’t much I cant handle anymore.

I think about my life, and I think about my age and the people who are in my life and have been for years, I sadly just experienced a massively heartbreaking well, breakup. I didn’t really understand how much I love him and how much he pretty much controlled me also, and I don’t mean, control as in he negatively controlled me, I guess I mean I would have done anything for him. Going back to the people in my life, if someone asked me “hi Kam – good today?” I would skimpily answer back with ‘yeah I’m ok’ and there are those people who really don’t want an honest up front answer sadly, but then my other friends who care about me, love me and know me will not allow it stay at I’m ok because most of the time, I am not always ok.

I guess you can’t help who you fall in love with and when, you just have to go with the flow, but what if I feel like it wasn’t my fault, and he feels the same – miscommunicate. Ironic since we promised to always communicate and be forward not act childish and play hurtful games. All I know is I didn’t want to take it public if we both were not ready and willing to fight for each other and build a strong happy foundation to an amazing relationship. 

SIDE NOTE ➡️ MAKEUPANDTHECITY will have so many changes over the next month or so, from fashion all the way to food – I will be introducing some new writes and some new affiliations – SO subscribe so you’re in the know..

Its also kind of sad that you can be qualified to have a job life myself or really, whatever you want to do but without an education, people wont look twice at you and then what, you’re stuck doing the jobs that no one wants to do for forty ($40.00) less because you’re going into a temp agency every morning (yes I have high school diploma) I guess I’m trying to understand that, why that life? Someone offered you an amazing paying job, start up, clients, connections and in the end you go and blow it all up – for no reason at all.

Yes, people have got my foot in the door but I pushed open the door myself, I made mistakes and fell so hard but you, you had someone to catch you, and you had someone to really love you.

I guess right now is where we come full circle – I see so much potential in the world wasted every day of my life, and it suck, I can honestly say to you I have ZERO clue what min. wage is, if, you were to ask me. I love to help people out because that is the type of man that I am, at the end of the day, when its dark and you’re falling asleep you know the type of man (woman) you are and want to be. I’m fully done taking chances on love because it just blows up in my face and the worst part about it is, I knew of this person, I knew what people say about him but I would want someone to take a chance on me because you can make a mistake once or twice as long as you take the time too fix it.

How many times can I catch someone before they fall, before I need someone to catch me? I guess i’m just sorry, sorry to my subscribers for not posting like I did – but truth be told it was like something was missing and I’d sit down to write but nothing would come, I guess I have a one track mind and all
I have on it now is
you

L’Oréal skin care | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

hi makeupandthecity,

⬅️SMASH FOLLOW AND SHOW SOME LOVE!

So the best thing about being on a PR list of any kind is you get to test out some products that are new and exclusive but, here comes the misconception in most cases unless we really, really love something then sadly they won’t keep sending it over and over!
Which hey, it’s sent as free advertising in half of the situations – it’s actually quite sneaky of a company if you give it some thought, why not create a certain amount to send to well know influencers a boom, free advertising!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ dailyjocks.com just realised their new underwear for men called cloud nine (9) and lemme just say, they couldn’t have named it any better! Cooling and comfort polyester blend which is durable and will not fade!

Drug store makeup and skin care has been stepping its game up for a very long time, its almost like, what took so long you are all owned by four (4) main players. So I’m going to talk about three (3) amazing face wash and mask set my way for consideration of review and I always use all three, well, nope, yep I use all three (3).

mask2
1) EXFOLIATING AND REFINE – 3 mineral clays + Red Algae
2) COMFORT AND UNIFYING – 3 mineral clays + Charcoal
3) PURAFYING AND MATTE – 3 mineral clays + Eucalyptus

That is the three (3) main groups that they stick within which I would say is typical to branding but these masks are a clay to foam cleansers which makes your skin feel so amazing. Clay-to-Mousse daily cleansers enriched with 3 different clays and enhanced with a nature-sourced ingredient to leave skin feeling fresh and clean.

The 1st range of clay-to-mousse daily cleansers that leave skin feeling clean and fresh. This cleanser is enriched with Kaolin + Montmorillonite + Moroccan clays and Red Algae Extract. Pure-Clay Cleanser Exfoliating & Refining leaves skin with pores looking tighter, and less visible, without over drying the skin.

There is nice playing games with these face washes, the level of science and ingredients beats that of some of the highs brands out there and I never thought in a million years that it would be this way, I think next time we need too grab both and compare the ingredient list because price no longer seems to be that big of a factor. Dun Dunnn Dunnnn.

Not to mention the fact that there is multi-masking so there can be multi-washing, there so perfect to use together, well, that is if you don’t mind buying all three (3) As of now in Canada you cannot buy these sadly but hit subscribe to find out just when and where you can buy them! Infused with 3 clays (Kaolin, Montmorillonite, and Moroccan) and 1 super-ingredient specifically for your skin type. Cleanse to wash impurities every day with our NEW Pure Clay Cleansers and mask twice a week to beautify skin.

Over time harsh environmental factors, such as pollution and debris damage skin leaving complexion dull and tired. So don’t forget how important it is to wash your face day and night especially if you are a makeup wearer.

I CAN CARRY YOU BUT NOT YOUR GHOSTS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

what’s up makeupandthecity, I’m so sorry I’ve been, well – what seems as a long time and I won’t let it happen again!

“Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.”

Ok – so it’s been a little bit so where do I touch down first, I’m going to leave some things out that just are not that important or really, somethings take time more or less. I’ve said this to many time by now so it’s silly to say it past this, I love recklessly and fully and I cannot help, I wouldn’t ever try to act as if I understand something that I don’t and I’ve had two things lately happen that I thought I understood in two different situations sadly, and one I had no idea that you could rip a $20.00 and use each half for $10.00 and secondly I don’t know love as well as I thought I did, I though at my age this would be different, I’ve always been cold, I guess you could say – choosing to not care and when its done its done, what happens when you see the mistakes that were made? what happens when you never meant to hurt the person you love? what happen when you have so much to say – still.

It does help to be with someone who just wants me there when its most comfortable for him, and when we do see each other I am see-through.  The thing is that sure, we might just be one person on this massive planet but we are all worth it, and it takes the smallest show of love to change someone’s day, maybe even their week! Love is powerful, and you’ll all see I’m right – make sure that if you have something more to say, then say it, if you can’t walk away, there is a reason.

Time won’t stop pushing up forward – or we feel like we are in a constant state of free-fall, I made someone a promise that I would be there to catch him if he needed it. It really sucks the way we all are now a days, the childish games, being lethargic, knowing with one word you can destroy me and with saying the words I needed to hear I would be yours forever. I am on my knees for you, arms cross and head down.

used to fill my life with people who were weak or hurting and who needed someone to fill that void – I would hurt and use people to get to where I wanted to be in life. I was a monster. But I’ve learned from my past and my life is now filled with strong, amazing and loving people – people I would bet any amount of money on that when I fall I will have them there to catch me, strip me naked with your words, hate and opinions about whatever you want – keep talking, keep checking my blog, keep trying to bring me down and all you’re doing is becoming the person that you hated so much to begin with. When you talk about me, more people know my name. When you keep checking and borderline stalking me and what I’m doing, it’s more views for me. Every nightmare needs influence so I’m asking you and everyone who use the voice that you have to try to hurt or bring anyone down? Why give in to hate when it’s so much easier to give in to love and see that mistakes are made and like I said I’m not looking for anyone’s forgiveness because I don’t need it – I have the most amazing life, I have been so blessed from the highest high to the lowest low, in heartbreak came makeupandthecity, I learned to channel my heartbreak, sadness and anger to creating something that over time became something more then I could ever ask for a given me so many opportunities, if I even had the amount of time to focus on your life or stalk what you’re doing with it, whoa the free time you must have – for anyone who has made it this far, live your life for yourself and don’t allow hate to win, and remember that second chances are rare and we are all beautiful and unique and with our words and with our hate we cause a ripple effect that is clear to see. so I guess I’m asking you; why isn’t it clear to see for the love that we give? 

I will take responsibility for my action and the choices I’ve made in my life. Will you?

I really feel like I’ve know him forever like he was always meant to be in my life, we were meant to meet. Grow together. Touch. Make love. Explore the world and allow each other to make mistakes and grow from those mistakes. There is nothing unbecoming about this man, he’s so sensitive yet masculine. He’s gone through hard times with accepting who he is and I’m more then happy to show him the world and that being gay does not define you. It is not a label stitched into your skin. In a way I almost want to thank him for just always being there and being so understanding and for treating me as I treat him like a man. I’ve never loved anyone like this and it has to be put out there.

To him if he reads this : It’s going to sound like a total cliché I know but when we start talking it’s like there is no time, time stands still and there is only you and I. I think you knew you had me from the moment we first started talking truly that was the moment I knew you were going to take my heart. As time will push us forward as it always will, I will continue to fall in love, respect and be amazed by you. With out a doubt my life has been so much better with you in it,

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way.
