MAKEUPANDTHECITY x HOURGLASS – number one foundation and liquid lips, plus, let’s talk. 

Sup makeupandthecity, 

As I’ve mentioned, the last couple days have been less then ideal but I will say to you guys what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger people that I once knew what I was making dumb choices, I no longer know. I have my blog which I love so much, and with my blog comes all of you and I’ve come to love you all in different ways – don’t think for a second I don’t lurk and see what some of you guys are up too!

I have my amazing job in NYC with ENTERTAINMENT ONE or as much would recognize it as EOne and EOne Music in Publicity, Media and Promotions which I’ve been doing a little bit off hence my Producer position with Max Emerson – and I have my amazing boyfriend who I tell everything too and who I love so much. We can talk for so many hours and it only feels like a minute oh shit we have to go to sleep. 

It’s been so many year since some of my “mistakes” in life which really were people who I thought I loved and I thought I had answers that I didn’t have based on ignorance and stupidity and the snow ball effect, but I will tell you anyone who messages Dan bullshit drama about me, I don’t get it. What do you want? For me to break up with him? Because I will not. I will not the mistakes that I made in the past. People can be so consumed with hatred it’s absolutely disgusting and so disrespectful – no matter what I wouldn’t ever ever ever try to create a fight over nothing, how planned out this person made it and horrible things – it’s disgusting and inside and out, so are you. All that it’s showing me is that you’re in love with and coming for my relationship to get me single and is such a calculated and a absolutely disgusting way that should involve the police. 

I love Dan more then anyone or anything and I never ever knew what love was until I met him and as soon as I saw him I literally told him, i didn’t ask him, I said I’m going to take you out for a date and rest is history – I’ve been so blessed the past yeah and I’ve had some personal sadness of course. I guess the real reason I’m telling you(s) guys all this is because I can’t understand holding deep down all of that hatred and wanting something that someone else has and going extremely out of your way to say absolutely disgusting things. People need to respect and love eachother because in the end, it’s not Daniel and I who are hurt – its you, you sad pathetic man. 

Sorry guys I just had to get that out because odds are they stalk my blog like a lowlife anyways!

Today we’re going to talk about the ultimate I think summer foundation and eye products from HOURGLASS! 

Starting with THE MIRACLE FOUNDATION  – IMMACULATE® LIQUID POWDER FOUNDATION just a quick little note there did change the packaging for this before it was wasting a lot of the product sadly that the pump couldn’t get due to the consistency of the makeup.

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x TOM FORD – for him 

Sup makeupandthecity, 

So these past couple days have just been so shitty, I don’t know how to explain to someone that I’m giving them all of me, I completely changed so much in my life, just for them. I wouldn’t ever hurt them. My heart is beating, it’s beating for you. 

Am I being pushed away? 

Tom Ford is one of the first brands that made makeup for a man viewed differently, even before launching a mega successful makeup line – Tom Ford  had concealers for men. 

LISTEN WITH ME! 🎧

⬅️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON 

OIL-FREE DAILY MOISTURIZER is such an amazing moisturizer for men, it gives the skin everything that it needs! 

It’s oil-free and absorbs into the skin so fast and leaves it matte so you don’t look all shiny because I hate that after I wash my face and, look greasy and gross. It pretty much does it all, minimizes the look of pores and dullness. 

It also helps with first signs of aging and fine lines with the Tom Ford complex of skin loving ingredients. 

It will leave your face looking toned, polished and reenergized

PRICE ➡️ $145.00 for 50ml 

Check it out here. Don’t be scared of the price! 50ml is the standard size for moisturizers in the USA. 

ANTI-FATIGUE EYE TREATMENT is my go to eye care, it immediately gets rid of any darkness under the eyes, it also helps to lift and firm the eye area.  

It doesn’t stick together, or become patchy when you apply a concealer on top of it like a lot of eye creams out there. This eye cream also has a cooling silver applicator which really aids to puffiness which is a massive plus. 

PRICE ➡️ $85.00 for 15ml

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ eyes are the first to show signs of aging so using an eye cream is important from a young age! 

You can find it here

The CONCEALER from Tom Ford is a mans secret weapon really, it’s one of those concealers that you apply and it’s like it blends itself. 

Let’s be real sometimes we all have redness, blemished, razor nicks or dark dark circles and they can be hidden in a natural way. 

Remember that men have testosterone in their skin where woman have estrogen, some makeup applies better to woman because of the estrogen in the skin. This concealer is designed to work with a mans skin. 

It’s a huge must have for all men. 

PRICE ➡️ $50.00 for .08 oz / 2.3 g

You can find it here – come on be a man! Try something new! 

Always remember like a painting has a frame, eyebrows are like the frame to our face! 

The BROW GELCOMB is amazing for keeping your brows looking nice and well kept without making them have crazy arches or looking to perfect (there is nothing wrong with that preference) there is definitely something different with this product and I think it’s the little built in comb it gives you a polish and sophisticated look. 

Very easy to apply and use and it’s a lightweight gel also so it doesn’t look like anything is applied to the brows to keep them looking on fleek, as we would say. 

I think every man should try this or a brow type of gel to keep the hairs tame and polished and looking fresh for the boys or girls

PRICE ➡️ $60.00 for  0.7 oz / 2.2ml

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x TOO FACED – tops and bottoms / updates 

Sup makeupandthecity 

So you might notice a little more advertisement and product of the month will be now branded sadly – I say sadly but it’s secretly something all bloggers want. TOO FACED has made MAKEUPANDTHECITY an affiliate and bought a part of my growing brand. Also I think one of the founders has the same name as my ex boyfriend ‘blandino’ 

insert photo here! ⬇️ 

MAKEUP 101 ➡️ Any self-proclaiming beauty junkie is familiar with TOO FACED and can rattle off their famous products by heart: the Chocolate Soleil Bronzers (TOO FACED makes the number one bronzers on the market) the Teddy Bear Brushes, and, of course, the Better Than Sex Mascara, which might have a slightly hyperbolic name but does make your lashes look freakin’ awesome. My personal favourite from TOO FACED is BORN THIS WAY! 

The name of the company comes from a loving insult – as anyone knows who once worked in the world of sales makeup, you have these nice men and woman who become not so, uhm, nice when you don’t have what they want. So TOO FACED was born. Yep they are of course owned by Estée Lauder hell part of me was owned by Estée Lauder before I even signed the contract. They own and represent the best of the best. To know more about companies and what they own click here, to check out my previous post named “WTF WEDNESDAY : WANT TO REVIEW PRODUCT AND BETTER YET BE PAID FOR YOUR OPINION? BE CARFUL.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ TOO FACED created the world’s first glitter eye shadow. 

LISTEN WITH ME!! 🎶

SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!! 

Let’s get into the tops and bottoms of TOO FACED ➡️

THE TOP(s) 

BORN THIS WAY concealers are amazing for under the eye, I’ve not had a issue with creasing with them at all. 

 Instantly hide imperfections, vanish the appearance of dark circles, and blur the look of lines and wrinkles for complete coverage so undetectable, they’ll think you were Born This Way. 

This concealer is very very hydrating also which is a plus and something I think that you want from your concealer especially getting into summer. 

We infused skincare benefits, including Coconut Water to replenish moisture levels, Alpine Rose to brighten and boost radiance, and Hyaluronic Acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Creamy and extremely comfortable on the skin, a proprietary blend of color correctors create the look of flawless skin so that is a mega plus. 

PRICE ➡️ $39.00 for 0.23 Fl. oz. / 0.7 mL

Selfie Powders are your filters for the real world – The collection of weightless finishing powders mimic the effects of your favorite photo filters by using light-fragmenting technology to instantly brighten with diffused warmth, bronze with a smoothing glow, or add a cool ethereal light to the skin. Get close-up perfection in photos and look filter-flawless in real life! 

Oh boy do these powders do what they say they will do also! The yellow can be a little, yellow so don’t apply it heavy handed. 

Formulated with out parabens ✔️

PRICE ➡️ $44.00 MAKEUPANDTHECITY PRICE $39.60 here

BETTER THEN SEX is the number one selling mascara and now comes in waterproof but not that annoying waterproof that you can’t get off or makes your lashes come with it. 

Go ahead cry for me, your mascara isn’t going anywhere. Play proof. One coat and lashes are full, defined, and stretched to unbelievable lengths. Two coats and lashes look even more luscious, curled, and dramatic. Three coats and you’ve achieved the most intense, voluminous, waterproof lashes possible! 

PRICE ➡️ $30.00 for 8.0 mL / 0.27 Fl. Oz

CHOCOLATE SOLEIL MATTE BRONZER is the bronzer that your bronzer wants to be – remember when I said TOO FACED makes the number one bronzers in the world? Here’s why, it’s infused with antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and signature bronzing pigments to create a unique matte bronzer that neutralizes red and evens skin tone. 

No other bronzer can say that. Plus that amazing small and well taste – ain’t going anything. 

Vegan-friendly • Formulated without parabens always a plus 

PRICE ➡️ $38.00 

SWEETHEARTS BLUSH in peach is so amazing – many many brands have tried to recreate I guess I’ll say, this amazing peach sad. It’s the only baked blush that won’t give you fall out or a problem. 

With three perfect swatches, you can just swirl the colors together and apply, or use more of one shade for a custom flush or highlight.

Baked color formula allows the blush to be applied as a beautiful buildable finish.

Blush works completely on all skin tones that’s a makeupandthecity promise. 

PRICE ➡️ $38.00 for net wt. 5.5 g / 0.19 Oz

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x CHARLOTTE TILBURY – top three (3) must have products 

Hey guys! How’s it going today! I’m back in New York City, which is now home for my amazing boyfriend and I. I was going to do PR UNBOXING of the new Urban Decay HEAT collection but way to many people are reviewing it and have so many crazy opinions. 

Let me just say companies do not send us “better” quality makeup then you buy – I understand why some who say or think that 100% but if you know how manufacturing goes they will only make so many of a certain product – say you need five thousand (5000) units, ok cool! But for five hundred (500) to one thousand (1000) made completely different for PR send outs it would be hard to find a manufacturer who would be cool with that, I keep it one hundred (100) with you guys. Always. 


So Charlotte Tilbury is nothing new to me at all like it is now for people, it’s new and amazing. I remember almost two years ago faulhaber communications which is an amazing full service PR and Marketing agency in Liberty Village in Toronto sent me a press package of products and it was mostly Charlotte Tilbury! 

LISTEN WITH ME!!  🎶

SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!! And don’t forget new followers only get entered in a chance to win a MacBook in gold! Share the post for another entry! (comment proof) 

Let’s get started ➡️

AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH compact powder is amazing – the packaging is all very luxury you’ll notice right away and in stunning rose gold, the mirror is also very high quality with a small bit of magnification which isn’t bad. I also love the little engraved star on almost all of the products. 

It really prevents excess shine and brighten complexion. Soft focus micro powders from nano-particles blur away lines and imperfections, sitting like a soft micro-fine cashmere veil on top of your skin it really does make your skin look airbrushed. Rose wax • Almond oil • Flow extracts soothe and restore skin for a healthy glow. 

It is labeled as a full coverage powder but it really depends on your application method, brush will give you a more light-medium coverage and with a sponge pad that comes with all pressed powders will give you fuller coverage. I actually never used the little powder sponges before but now I absolutely love them. 

PRICE ➡️ $60.00 for 8g and carton dimensions 76 x 84 x 16

BUT – it’s a good product and looks amazing on the skin. You can check it out here

THE RETOUCHER was made to be kinda like the retouching pen tool in photoshop where you just click and like magic whatever you don’t want to see is gone

Enriched with a radical Lipo-Siliconic compound and special elastomer pearls, it creates a natural healing veil of colour that blends seamlessly with your natural skin tone, so that imperfections disappear, pores, lines and wrinkles are minimised. It’s also very very hydrating which is always a welcome within any makeup I think the retoucher uses Black tea  • Vitamins • Paraben-free to help fill in hollowed out skin grooves, creating a smooth, seamless surface. 

PRICE ➡️ $48.00 for 3.5ml and carton dimensions 21 x 21 x 145

Check it out here, it works wonders with the AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH POWDER! ★

FILMSTAR BRONZE AND GLOW DUO is so amazing Charlotte Tilbury was killing the highlighter game before there even was one! Again luxury packaging in the signature rose gold! There is two (2) shades for this and the one above is for fair to medium skin – The bronzer is a blend of pearl and pigment to help contour your face and mimic that sun-kissed skin.

The highlighter has a golden base to universally flatter any skin tone, with Light Flex Technology to capture and reflect light just where you want it – which is a complete must for proper highlighting. Personally I think people are going a little to crazy with highlighting and forget just was artists use for in the first place! But then again makeup is about expression and fun so do you always! It is Paraben-free, of course.  

PRICE ➡️ $80.00 for 16g and carton dimensions 121 x 61 x 15

Take a look and find out more about the product here! Are you sucked in yet

SIDE NOTE ➡️ the brushes from Charlotte Tilbury are amazing and worth the money! They actually have some science behind them – the handle and the way it’s cut has flatten pieces so that they rest when you put them down and don’t roll onto the floor! And that is a trick from back in the 60s – cool, no?

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x TARTE – SLAY WITH CLAY 

Hey guys – how goes it? So it’s 4:00am for me just like it pretty much always is when I blog, something about the sun rise is so beautiful to me – it’s hard to explain. 

Coffee ✔️ espresso ✔️ box of new makeup ✔️ i like to keep some makeup (and skin care) in a box that I want to touch base on. I receive so much makeup on a day to day basis that even something new fades to the background sadly. 

I love Tarte and SMASHBOX so much because they are companies that I’m close with and I’ve watched evolve. Tarte has always had Amazonian clay as an ingredient so it’s just a no brainer that they would do – slay with clay. 

SIDE NOTE – makeup 101 which I’ve used since the get go of my blog – nope, not saying I invented it. Calm down. So im going to start calling my new product launches and reviews MAKEUPANDTHECITY x (the brand) and then name the collection. It’s new and current and feels, right

LISTEN WITH ME  🎧

SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!!

FIND YOUR SHADE

SLAY WITH CLAY is one of the newest collections from Tarte with the new clay stick foundations • smoothie blender foundation brush • clay face shaping palette • clay smart mascara • clay lid primer • so if you didn’t know Tarte was the first company to use the breakthrough Amazonian clay and maracuja for their amazing complexion products. 

Today Tarte is a leader in healthy, eco-chic beauty, offering cruelty-free cosmetics infused with skinvigorating™ ingredients.

The Clay Stick foundation is amazing and so good for the skin I remember when the PR was sent out for this you open it and there was super healthy energy bars and I was like what the heck..? But they really are like a healthy snack for your skin. It’s a cool powder to liquid formula very similar to the MUFE (make up forever) HD stick foundations but better for you skin for sure. It’s a medium to full coverage but buildable remember what I always say – it’s easier to add then to take away with makeup! There is Micro-encapsulated powders that burst with your body heat to keep you shine and cake-free. 

Vegan formula • antioxidants • vitamins C + E  • amazonian clay • a total skin-balancing powerhouse that hydrates or mattifies depending on your skin type. 

There is zerogluten • talc • artificial fragrances • parabens • sulfate • It’s pretty much got it all for a simple foundation stick. The packaging is simple but in Tarte fashion the top of the cap has a cool details. 

Ideal for travel. 

$50.00CAD for 9 g / 0.32 Oz. 

PRO TIP ➡️ apply with the smoothie brush from Tarte it’s so pretty and feels amazing in the hand and like every Tarte brush (pretty much the only brushes I now use) the quality is unstoppable. The secret’s in the dense, angled bristle design that targets coverage where you want it. Use small, circular, blender-like strokes for a natural, cake-free look. $36.00CAD and available here

Next ➡️ we have the #SLAYWITHCLAY face palette and I won’t lie I’ve been looking for the ultimate complexion palette for travel or for home use and I really hoped and thought it was going to be this but sadly it’s only for shaping the face and eyes (I might have my own complexion palette coming soon) but it doesn’t make it any less amazing and a total must have for summer 2017Tarte always have amazing packaging for their palettes and this palette is, stunning! 

Twelve (12) essential Amazonian clay matte eyeshadows multitask as universal eye, nose & brow shapers, plus contour colors so you can, well, slay with clay. SHADES • journey (rosy buff) • stone (rosy brown) • solstice (ivory) • terracotta (warm taupe) • dunes (slate brown) • smoke (coffee) • sand (cream) • desert (cool taupe) • ember (amber brown) • onyx (black) • instinct (buff) • timber (chestnut) • Each microfine powder blends to a natural, longwearing finish minus the harsh lines. The secret’s in the clay: it helps balance & replenish skin so you get the most even payoff without creasing, caking, or flaking. 

The bronzer and contour shades are perfect for any skin tone when you are looking for a real looking contour colour you wanna go for a more cool toned shade so that it can mimic shadows tone realistic. I’m not sure if you’ve ever had the pleasure of smelling a Tarte palette it smells like vanilla chocolate but more like vanilla thanks to vanilla extract added to the formula. God I could smell it forever

SIDE NOTE ➡️ it does come with a little booklet like most companies throw in on some looks that you can create with that palette and it’s nice but where is the fun in that. Makeup is an expression of art – and you. 

All of them had very good pigmentation and a smooth, silky formula that blended well and adhered to the lid nicely without primer. They didn’t crease nor did they fade during the wear of the model. It’s debatable whether you can dupe these shades across other Tarte palettes. Sure, there are shades that look similiar to past palettes but I’m going to go say they aren’t complete dupes of past shades. Shades like Timber, Terracotta, Dunes, Smoke, Stone, Instinct, all felt very unique to me. 

Again this is a good palette for travel. They are ophthalmologist tested • safe for contact lens wearers • dermatologist tested • it’s nice when a company makes sure their products are safe! 

$64.00CAD and 6 are 0.035 oz each, 3 are 0.070 oz, and 3 are 0.21 oz in size

LET’S GET ONE THING STRAIGHT – I’M NOT

I’m going to just do a touch base with you guys and say what’s going on! Happy pride boys and girls 🏳️‍🌈 it’s come to my attention that some of you are maybe a little confused so let’s clear the air – Hey, I’m Kameron Michael Jason Smith, I am a man. I am a man with a passion for beauty, not just cosmetics and but transforming yourself and understanding that beauty is not in the makeup you apply the beauty is in you – I am in public relations, promotions, media and marketing on a global scale. I have believed for a very long time that I was garbage and my life was worthless – I’ve always seen the beauty in the world but I never saw the beauty in myself it lead me down a path that I would do anything, anything to help someone never come close too. 

It wasn’t until I stopped and I looked in the mirror and said you are better then this and it’s time to make changes. I am a gay man kinda I guess, and I say I guess because I do like woman also but I would always say that I will fall in love with who I’m meant to, and, I’ve fallen in love with a beautiful man – who is the true definition of pure there is not take there is only give but I do not take, I only give. If that makes sense. It’s really sad to think about what I used to think was love and the abuse I would take – that’s not love.

I am not a flamboyant man (no hate to any feminine guys out there) I love hiking • having some beers with my friends • fishing • being with the people I love • my man • English literature • writing – the reason I’m bringing all of this up is because I am not only ONE thing there is so much that makes me, well, me. I got a comment and it was a nice comment and it ended in “you go girl” which made me think, do my followers, subscribers, viewers, even know who I am.

Yes – everything I review on my blog is sent to me by PR companies or artistry relations in the hopes that I will review it. I’m sent so much stuff that doesn’t fit into my brand and some things I’m scared to show because I don’t want to be judge like I don’t want to say oh TOOFACED sent me a really nice LV backpack for my birthday – my success came fast and came from a lot of work and self growth – people say to me you’re so lucky or my personal favourite “you have it all” when no I’m not lucky I worked my ass off to get where I am and do you want to know the complete and honest truth when I think about it I never used to think I’m lucky in life, until the day that I met Daniel – that is the day I felt lucky. That was the day that I knew I’d rather die then not be able to tell him I love him, or be able to marry him, wake up next to him, hold his hand. I think of all that’s happening in the world lately and it’s truly sad – love wins always. 

I have been very very personal on here and the amount of emails I get I love love love reading them and helping out if I can, please understand I AM NOT doing nice and good things for people now to try to make up for anything I’ve done in my past. I will say it first, I’m not perfect but if you want to come for me make sure you’ve stepped your game up and you’ve got the proof, because I do. I have made amazing well known friends along the way also who would all have my back, I’ve been given so many opportunities  and my blog now makes a substantial amounts of income which I never ever thought would happen, and I’ve done good things with that money giving back to the community and getting involved with projects like HOOKED by Max Emerson because I believe in the message and what he wants to do with his platform.

Some more things I bet you didn’t know about me I’m a on set* key makeup artist for Teen Vogue I’ve worked with countless big names and creative minds it’s been amazing – I have some really cool editorials coming out in July where it was my first full concept and control editorial and it happen to be with two (2) of the main girls from Pretty Little Liars. I am director of media photography for Charlie. I am producer rep for HOOKED and upcoming projects with Max Emerson. I have my own cosmetic line with brushes coming out end of summer and launching in a pretty massive makeup store.

I have an amazing assistant Kevin ➡️ kevinmakeupandthecity@gmail.com 

Day or night I am working my ass off because I love what I do.

I am Kameron Michael. 


I am a man. 

I am perfectly imperfect. 

I am MAKEUPANDTHECITY. 

MAY FAVOURITES – 2017 💎

So there has been a lot of ups and downs in the month of May (i’m also sorry to be posting this a little late also) but nonetheless these are my monthly favourites for the month of MAY 2017 – sadly some things happen to me that I don’t feel comfortable expressing just yet. 

I am, of course, going to include some products or items that were less then amazing in my eyes. Just because they didn’t work for my or my skin does not mean that they won’t work for you! Seize fire! 

So my first favourite is obviously my man who I couldn’t imagine my life without, he is outspoken, bold and extremely handsome. We have so much in common it’s unreal and we fit together like a puzzle piece from day one. I have so much love and respect for him and I can’t imagine anyone else really for me – this could very well be it and if so, I would gladly be with him until the end. Exciting, thrilling, exhilarating, astonishing, stimulating, elating, gripping, energizing, breathtaking, overwhelming, enchanting, riveting, enthralling, invigorating, overpowering and uplifting – is words that I would use to describe you, and perfection

Next ➡️ would have to be Tarte SHAPE TAPE I know that this concealer is a little expensive but it is worth every penny! I use shades FAIR and FAIR NEUTRAL – it has amazing ingredients for the skin such as 

• SHEA BUTTER 

• SUNFLOWER 

• PEONY 

• LICORICE ROOT 

• VITAMIN E

Formulated without : parabens • mineral oil • phthalates • triclosan • sodium lauryl sulfate • gluten and is dermatologist tested. Cruelty free but the company that owns Tarte is not cruelty free – sadly. Do you think that’s right? For KOSE corporate to own a brand like Tarte

Next ➡️ JUSTE UN CLOU BRACELET by Cartier which was the first nice thing that I bought myself when I made 95k from advertising and partnership – I know I’ll be judged for this but it meant something special for me. 18K white gold, set with 32 brilliant-cut diamonds. 

A nail becomes jewelry. Designed in 1970s New York, the first Juste un Clou bracelet reflected a wild, freewheeling era. Bold, modern, and innovative, Juste un Clou is a creative twist on a familiar object. This jewelry collection transcends the everyday, making the ordinary exquisite, for him and for her

Next ➡️ NETFLIX ORIGINAL – SENSE8 – god this show is so amazing and so so relatable it will have you on the edge of your seat! If you haven’t heard or or just had a chance to sit down and watch some of sense8 I truly recommend it, it’s got such a cool story line and such and out of the box approach on life. It also in a creative way focuses on a lot of world issues and how we deal with them. 

It’s just so smart and the cast is so amazing. You will not be sorry to take the time to watch it. You’re welcome!

Next ➡️ HOOKED a film by Max Emerson 

Stepping in as producers rep for this film has been fun and I’ve enjoy getting to know Max as more then just a “pretty face” we share a lot of the same views so I was happy to throw some money at the film to help it out and see it grow. Hooked is a strong bold storyline that might not hit to far from home for a lot of people. 50% of profits will be donated to several causes to help LGBT youth which is awesome. Remember be the change you want to see in the world. 

Final is Smile Sciences™ which is an at home teeth whiten set! I’m not going to say to to much because it is a sponsored post coming up but it’s absolutely amazing being 100% cruelty-free and vegan, not only is Smile Sciences™ gentle on teeth, it is gentle to the environment, kosher, FDA registered and made in the USA, After years of struggling with porcelain staining and tooth sensitivity from in-office and over-the-counter teeth whitening products and procedures, Smile Sciences™ founders, Deanna Gardner and Andra Moore, were determined to create a formula that would offer powerful prescription-grade results, with no sensitivity, all while professionally whitening teeth and removing stains from caps, crowns, and porcelain veneers.

It is a wonderful product and you see massive results after just one use – I love the little card they give you showing you just how yellow your teeth actually are, coffee, wine, smokers out there!! No hate at all. Give this a try – i might be able to save you a lot of money from the kit. Let me hear back from the company!
