I hope everyone is nice and warm this December morning (in Canada) and if you’re driving into work respect the road and each other, there is way to many people who seem to forget how to drive in the snow! So I’ve been to a couple of holiday parties lately and it looks like some people aren’t allowing themselves to get into the holiday mood, and take a look at things from a new and fresh perspective, that can be something in your life, or the same makeup over and over.

Here are some top holiday products and how to use them,

Lets start with the lips with this must have lip vault from Tom Ford – I was super excited to see this in my mail and a little confused since I am not on Tom Ford PR but then I saw that it actually came from the beauty department at Neiman Marcus which is a luxury department store in New York city – It is the Tom Ford Boys and Girls fifty (50) piece set they are not full size but they are a size of smaller lipsticks that Tom Ford does sell separately – this vault of rich, special treated pigments and blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

You will have unlimited shades to make your holidays pop and fall in love with a new shade for the holiday season into the new year.

Tom Ford Boys and Girls fifty (50) piece set, $1,900 at Tom Ford website

Stila Written in the Stars Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow Set is a must have and has had the beauty community blown away with the stunning looks you can achieve so easily and quickly – the set contains three, miniature-sized liquid eyeshadows (they’re about half the size of a full-sized shade). All three (3) are also available individually in the permanent line-up. I really enjoy the effect of this formula for layering, but if you’re after them as a standalone product, you may be less enamored with them.

FAST TRACK LOOKS ➡️ Take a Cranberry eyeshadow and wash it across the lip, focusing color on the outer corner of the eye and blending slightly above natural crease – take Stila Written in the Stars Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow Set in the shade Kitten Karma and apply it to the center of the lid in a packing motion and stopping at the natural crease. Smoke out the waterline with the Cranberry eyeshadow dipping into a little Dark Brown.

HOURGLASS – The Confession Lipstick Archive | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi makeupandthecity,

⬅️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON FOR A SURPISE!
⏯ PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

What’s going on boys and girls – its come to my attention that MAKEUPANDTHECITY has been more makeup only then story time and city events so I will make sure that I start too include more content because I am more then an makeup blog!

I was sent this in PR a bit ago and I didn’t think it was something for Christmas but I was wrong, the PR package is very large and super heavy which for some reason made me think it was all foundations or something like that, I guess I was just added to HourGlass PR which I’m very grateful for I don’t really use much of the products but they are super nice but Hourglass presents the ultimate luxury lipstick collection.
Introducing the limited edition Confession Lipstick Archive – a wardrobe of thirty (30) Confession Ultra Slim Lipstick Refills paired with two sleek gold applicators to be used interchangeably with all thirty (30) lipstick refill shades. This luxe collectors set is available exclusively this holiday season.

What I opened if you couldn’t tell from the title was the Hourglass The Confession Lipstick Archive for Holiday 2017 and it is completely Limited Edition I was blown away by the beautiful packaging and if anyone knows Hourglass lipsticks you know you have to buy the gold wand component first before you can start to buy the lipsticks, well, inside this luxe box is two (two) of the Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable wands.

SIDE NOTE ➡️this archive set from HourGlass sells for $650.00US so I can only imagine how much it would be if you did a Canadian checkout but you do get thirty (30) shades and two (2) of the gold wands.

• Delivers creamy, saturated, longwearing color with a satin finish without smudging or feathering • Each ultra slim lipstick is designed to be used with the sleek gold applicator to provide the ultimate control to precisely accentuate, contour and define the lips • The two sleek gold applicators can be used interchangeably with the full collection • Vegan & gluten free • .03 OZ  • No Parabens • No Gluten • No Phthalates • No Silicone D5 • No Talc • No Triclosan • No Mineral Oil • Not tested on animals.
