COSMETIC SURGURY – SKIN VITALITY MEDICAL | MXTC

Hey boys and girls – I hope all is well and you’re excited for it to be Thursday which means we have one more day till Friday and we can all be happy that it’s the weekend, I hope you guys have some fun plans for the weekend! I’m not sure if everyone knows or not from my previous LIFE 101 posts about past relationships, what happen to me, abuse and the mistakes I made leading up to it ➡️ LIFE 101 | “you’ll be looking at the city and I’ll be looking at you” 18+ my jaw ended up being damaged, well broken so the first time around while it headed they gave me a temporary retainer to help my jaw heal properly, long story short, it didn’t heal properly at all – my mandibular condyle healed incorrectly so I went about 2 1/2 weeks ago and had my jaw re-broken and my mouth wired shut to help to fix the problem, this in itself was labeled as cosmetic surgery and I went to Skin Vitality Medical for this procedure.

So next come the fun parts with Botox and Juvederm, I know what you’re thinking it’s easy to get lost and not be able to stop with all of that and if anything I will get less then they recommend because at this point I don’t even see the need for it but, on Sunday when I get my finally have my full mouth unwired I might see a need for it – and if I don’t then I won’t go. I just thought also if it would be cool also to blog about it when I’m there and give this the reason I get in front of the camera and start to film my reviews and keep it 100 and fresh.

21Brotox-for-Men
I’m going to talk to you just what Botox and Juvederm is, so Botox medical name being Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from axon endings at the neuromuscular junction and thus causes flaccid paralysis. Juvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). In recent developments Juvederm has been developed to be the filler of choice for most if not all.

I guess I just wanted to fill everyone in on what’s coming and what to expect. I totally will put up before and after photos since I’m most known for my intense jawline. I’m excited to just wake up and not have to use my ZIIP or whatever to see the instant results that I have and need, I’m in no way saying I will stop using the ZIIP because that baby works so well. If you don’t want needles or anything like that I would give ZIIP a try because for me, and for many, it was a massive game changer for my face.

21botox-patient
I do want to say, in no way am I looking for permission from anyone, and no one should this should be a well looked into choice for you, and fine a clinic that is right for you, I will actually be going to NYC for this, I was going to stay within Canada but this clinic didn’t get to VIP status with a zero count of anyone unhappy. Every single patience has walked away happier then walking in.

➡️ I will keep everyone posted as I go – and there will be a lot of photos! If you have any questions, please feel free to DM me and I will do my best to help or I can give you a number of someone who you would and should speak to if you’re considering this.

Don’t forget about my previous post ➡️ Philips – OneBlade | MXTC

DYNAMIC DUO | M X T C

Hey boys and girls, what’s going on, I hope you guys had a fun and safe Friday night, if you had alcoholic beverages that can be seriously bad for the skin but we all do it, thankfully for us we have many, many tricks to boost the skin and start to heal it back to better condition. Dynamic Duos is a post I do when two products from different brands just work together so well it’s unbelievable and today I’m going to be talking about BLAQ and GLAMGLOW which are two pretty well known brands in Canada and much of North America. Don’t forget to DM me on Instagram if you have any questions or anything as I don’t approve comments due to negative comments in the past about my gender, of all things and I have likes restricted to five hundred and it allows one like to come though if you’re interested in that it’s a paid plug in call ‘with in the hundreds’ check out my past Dynamic Duos ➡️ DYNAMIC DUOS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY.

I’m sure that you all think BLAQ and GLAMGLOW would go well together regardless because of the brand types that they are but there is so many differences actually night and day – just so you know the Duos are GLAMGLOW Bubble Sheet Mask and BLAQ Eye Masks.  I wasn’t always 100% on the hype of GLAMGLOW I did a promo for them a while back which is what made me actually, see the ingredients, the factory and so much more!

➡️ This carbonated fizzy foam mask effectively removes dirt, excess oil, and makeup buildup. The translucent cleanser begins the oxygenating transformation into a face-forming foam cushion and 3-D microbubbles foam in all directions for the ultimate detox. Truth be told I semi like this mask because it makes you begin to look as if you’re a gnome or right out of the movie Frozen – The black bamboo charcoal sheet is infused with a microbubbling cleanser, featuring Green Tea Teaoxi technology and the essential amino acid l-arginine for radiant skin ➡️ Fresh citrus invigorates the senses.

Now as for BLAQ wow, is one word of saying it, putting it on before you get into the shower, and then even leave it on as you get in and wash your hair – the results are just wow. BLAQ says using the eye mask twice a week until you’ve kicked your bad habits will help reduce the appearance of under eye bags, but they can also be used as a one-off before an event or when you just want to feel good about.

➡️ Hyaluronic acid has the greatest ability to restore moisture out of just about anything, it holds close to 1000 times its weight in water! So for around the eye area these babies are what you need and what you will use once, they will be come apart of your full routine.

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!

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 glitter right here.

08covershotglittersmb
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.

08EVENT
Time
➡️ (Saturday) 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Location ➡️ Village of Yorkville Park – 115 Cumberland St., Toronto ON, M5R 1A6

Just remember to be safe! Have a lot of fun! and love one another! oh and make sure you subscribe or bookmark MXTC!

BOXYCHARM | M A K E U P x T H E C I T Y

Hey guys – I hope that you are having a wonderful Monday morning or evening whenever this is read, please do click the link to listen to the song that I hit shuffle and started playing, in case you don’t understand where the ‘press play and listen with me’ comes from it would be the first song that starts to play on my apple music, or my saved music, I can’t really find my phone at the moment but it can’t be far since my AirPods are workin’ maybe I left it in my room, as I left kind of in the dark so that I didn’t wake someone up…but that’s besides the point of why you are here, we’ll maybe some of you but you’re going to want to look for the posts labeled as ‘LIFE 101’ such as ➡️ LIFE 101 – Some love stories are not epic novels, they are short stories but that doesn’t make them less full of love. please do be advised most of those posts are 18+ and based on a birthday entered – but let’s get into BOXYCHARM and see if it was a charming experience.

So in each BOXYCHARM box, you will receive 4 to 5 full-size beauty items. Ranging from makeup and skincare, to beauty tools and color cosmetics, each box has a minimum value of $100 which we already know is less of a value of FabFitFun but this is more up a makeup lovers alley, personally I found what was in my box could be used for a full makeup look – and from the way that I see them lay it out with the theme I’m going to assume they are set up to be used in such a manner.

04BOXYCHARM02
Within my BOXYCHARM ➡️ TARTE ➡️ BDB ➡️ BITE ➡️ BRIOGEO ➡️ TATCHA ➡️ AND LUXIE which I did check and don’t know if Yosef Martin sent it to me for to be able to use the shadows with a brand that they work with, I do also know the owner and CEO mentioned above and he knew I was reviewing the box, so I will keep going with the thought that I did not receive the brushes, and to be honest I very much dislike the brand Luxie there is some sourcing they use that I think is unethical.

There is a couple of options for renewal of the box you can choose one time to make sure that it’s for you which is what I would always advise when it comes to something to this or three months because one box might be not for you so it makes a great gift, then the next box is what you’ve been waiting for.

➡️ Just so everyone knows also the BOXYCHARM through FabFitFun boxes along with some other unused PR, I donate to a local woman’s shelter for abused and homeless woman! They need it more then I, and I absouloutly know that it will give them a smile and make them feel beautiful when they need it the most.

BOXYCHARM is one of the subscription boxes that I would highly recommend for a lot of reason, gifts, personal, and the list goes on. Also don’t forget that you can choose to get the luxe box which is filled with even more items and a much larger value for your money, but it just will take some more of your money to get that box but it is worth the upgrade, isn’t it always?

HAPPY HOLIDAYS |TARTEIST™ PRO REMIX VAULT AND COLLECTION | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

xmas
Happy Holidays guys, from my family to yours,
it’s Christmas eve right now, sadly if you read the start to yesterdays post (GREEK GODDESS COLLECTON | LUNAR BEAUTY MAKEUPANDTHECITY) you’d know why this Christmas well, sucks, but I am going to try to make the best of it as I can – but I don’t want to not wish everyone around the world, celebrating or not a happy and safe holiday season with your family, and remember it doesn’t have to be blood, sometimes we make our own family and that’s completely alright! I’m sitting next to a cracking fire at 5:07am with the Christmas tree lit up, surrounded with all these products and it feels comfortable – sometimes it’s nice to put in headphones and just write.

To be completely honest with you, I wouldn’t mind if I didn’t see Tarte or open a new Tarte package for a good year, I do like Tarte but they are a trend company and no really the type to start just follow what they think and before it even makes it they have in production five hundred products incorporating a smile for example, Tarte factory employees must be so well paid, and what warehouse in China, Canada or USA? good, uh, question. Tarte just doesn’t stop and some could see this as a good thing but in the beauty industry, we all need a break unless your company is creating new ideas, not just creating for the sake of numbers. Also what’s with that dude with blonde hair now in all of their how to videos, what does he do for Tarte?

pro
Alright so the new Tarteist™ PRO REMIX vault is as they always do for sale on the website and maybe in Sephora but it’s been a long time since I have had to go into Sephora but I do have to go there today actually so perfect, I will check and update if they do. I will say, the one that I got in the mail have all the Tarteist™ PRO palettes and also a brush with the splatter handle, and three shade that are closest to my tone with vibrant color caps, which I wasn’t able to see for sale but the other items are, The brush is alright, nothing special, at this point we all know what a Tarte buffing brush is like they did a feature re-launch of the Clay Full Coverage Foundation and I don’t get what that has to do with a remix, but that was what I am talking about with the company, anything to make extra or make the consumer think they need more crap.

Tarteist™ PRO REMIX ➡️ When this palette came out it was the same time Morphe x James Charles came out so I feel like the Tarte team sat down and was like crap, what can we quickly do to do a pop of color in a cool way that’s fresh, It was smart of Tarte because Tarteist™ PRO Palette was actually not well received by makeup artists who actually do to grind. Even influencers found it to be extremely underrate for the price – so a remake of this palette could potentially be a smart move on Tarte’s end. Sold for $65.00 for 0.70 oz. and you can buy it and everything else mentioned in this post here. I’d consider it more of a complementary palette than a typical standalone palette but that really depends on your need for mattes in a look which now a days are pretty high with that said, I do want to mention that the bio about this palette is almost a toned down version of Morphe x James Charles all about unleashing your artist and going outside of your comfort zone some might say, This Remix palette is for those who love metallic shades – it’s full of shimmer and color with three matte shades and the rest pretty much chocked full of shimmer.

prooo
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Within the Remix palette you will get 20 shades, pricing is mentioned above and where to buy, there was a lot a lot of fall out when applying the shades and there was as much with the OG Pro Palette, understandingly that more fall out is typical with shimmer and metallic shades. Most makeup loves will have similar shades within already owned palettes.

proooooo
Tarteist™ PRO glow & blush ➡️ 
This is actually a winner in my eyes, The OG Pro Glow was well loved in my kit, I think that Tarte creates some of the best blushes on the market but this doesn’t even come close to the blush book that they have called blush 101 which came out for the back to school products – it was also good marketing to do a refresh on both of the PRO Palettes and not just the Eyeshadow Palette because other brands were launching a lot of great palettes. I do like that they decided to include in one bronzer that is the perfect universal shade for a bronzer, I do wish it was a little lighter for more fair skin but it really is a nice shade. The pan size is also almost mega sizes which is really nice because you will find them lasting you for quite some time!

prooooo
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Do make sure that you always check the little container with the lid off to see how long a product is considered good for etc. 24m

TOP FIVE PRODUCTS I USE DAILY | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hey guys – so much drama going on for me right now and I just really, do not understand why, the only difference between drama before and drama now is I have my very own big boy lawyer that I like to use. I really do understand that it happens, but I’m in a fight with one company over “copywriting” on clothing and thinking I took the idea when really, I bought them off wish, then one of my best friends purposely trying to get my in trouble with a company and brand that she had drama with, you just don’t use someone else name, its not fair, and it makes you look bad when everyone finds out. So my holidays so far have been…peachy.

I used to be that type who would wear, foundation, concealer, powder, setting powder and it would look good, and I have nothing against men who do all the steps but I found focusing on my skin, I’m not a teenage anymore and focusing on the skin care aspect did a lot better, I don’t have large pores, acne, or that dark of dark circles so it came down to it one day I was like what are you trying to hind when there isn’t anything almost like it is makeup abuse to do that and such a waste!

So lets get to the first thing that I use in the morning ➡️ MDNA SKIN’s The Face Wash and wow it makes your skin feel so amazing and fresh after one, and I mean one use the morning after you look so good, and I know its because of this cleanser (and line) it cost ➡️ $70.00CAD for 4 fl oz / 120ml and you can buy it from Barneys NYC by clicking here! When I say, this face wash is like nothing, nothing I have ever experienced it’s true, and trust me, I have tried so many products with so many claims to do this, or do that. MDNA SKIN’s The Face Wash is so gentle yet powerful brightening facial cleanser and makeup remover that quenches skin as it clarifies. Infused with alpha hydroxy acids and active botanicals, this cleanser purifies and helps visibly balance the skin while washing away dirt, debris, and all types of makeup.

mdna
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Malic acid: rejuvenating and brightening fruit acid that helps improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Turmeric: prized for its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to boost skin’s glow. Also there is a light scent which is mint, rosemary, geranium, and lime.

➡️ next is from MDNA SKIN also and its the MDNA SKIN’s The Serum and wow if you haven’t tried this line I really, really urge you to go and get a sample because it’s just that good, its hard to get into the price tag but these two I would say are staples from the line and I have, chrome mask, magnetic remover tool, eye serum and I do use them but I’ve found if you apply The Serum under the eyes and apply something on top its like you’re getting the same types of results, MDNA SKIN’s The Serum costs $345.17 for 1.7 fl oz / 50ml. and you can buy it here which again is a direct link to Barneys. MDNA SKIN’s The Serum is a breakthrough hydrating, plumping, and brightening treatment to help provide the look of firmer and more nourished skin. Enriched with powerful moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients, this formula helps to dramatically diminish the appearance of dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Three forms of hyaluronic acid : powerful hydrators that can attract and retain up to 1,000 times their molecular weight in water. Vegan squalene: locks in essential moisture and promote a soft, supple texture. Resveratrol: antioxidant that protects skin’s surface. Licorice: natural skin brightener that helps diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation from scarring and sun exposure. You can also check out my post about MDNA SKIN care ➡️MDNA SKIN | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

My next product of items I use daily is NARS soft matte concealer, I absouloutly love this little pot and I always have, but it is just now the way that I am using it that is right for me! This high performance, full coverage concealer instantly color corrects dark circles, redness, discoloration, and blemishes with a natural – looking, soft-matte finish. The oil-free formula builds weightlessly, blends seamlessly and last effortlessly while delivering long term skincare benefits. Light diffusing particles produce a soft-focus effect, smoothing skin and blurring imperfections. And after I get out of the shower before I blow dry my hair and get cute for the day, also after applying my skin care and normal routine, I warm up the product with my index fingers and swipe it under both eyes, around the nose, small bit on the chin and forehead and buff it into the skin using a buffing brush. Them my skin looks perfect, go on and blow dry my hair and let the my oils work with skin and then I use my fourth product which is a powder foundation a couple shades darker so that it gives me a sun kissed glow! NARS concealer is $40.00CAD for 0.21Oz or 6.2g from Sephora, NARS, or Ulta Beauty.
img_0322
As mentioned I used a powder foundation from SMASHBOX halo powder, I have always used it and always liked it, it leaves your skin with an amazing even glow that people will be commenting at, like I said to cut out useless steps I went a couple shades darker so that I can blend a little harder to get that bronzed look, keeping in mind I am pale, and it is winter! Halo Hydrating Powder Foundation is a foundation-setting powder hybrid that combines the payoff of a pressed powder with the luminous and breathable finish of a loose powder. The built-in powderizer allows you to freshly grind the perfect amount for a single application every time without fear of mess or over-powdering which I absouloutly love! The weightless formula is infused with Mineral Boost Complex, a blend of amino acids, peptides and minerals that work like a filter for skin, leaving you with an instantly corrected complexion and youthful glow. SMASHBOX halo hydrating perfecting powder is $80.00CAD for 0.3 ounces which is a lot of product and does makeup for the harsh price tag for a powder if you look at it that way only its so much more!

FIVE5BONUS SIDE NOTE ➡️ I also always will keep the Ilia Radiant Translucent Powder SPF 20 in the shade and only shade Moondance it wonderful to keep with me during the day to touch up and also for the SPF baby, SPF doesn’t last forever so its always good to touch it up! I have had this as my little secret weapon for so long before it’s small but has a full buffing / blending brush pop out, also gives you little instructions on the side, for example closed, open, buff so you know the powder has made its way to the end of the bristles. With a blend of organic powders and healing oils, our talc-free SPF 20 translucent powder formula nourishes and softens skin, while taking down shine thanks to a skin-texture, translucent finish. Formulated with aloe leaf extract to keep skin feeling cared for, and passion fruit and rosemary oil to soothe and fight inflammation. Leaves skin’s surface shine-free, but enough of a lit-from-within luminosity to leave it looking healthy and glowing and hey also easy too apply SPF throughout the day while on-the-go.

ALSO when it runs out of powder, the plastic holder does come out so you can add any milled powder if choice you want but they also do sell the powder by its self so you can add up from there!

$47.00CAD for 0.07oz / 2.3g link to buy is above!

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS SEASON FOUR PREDICTIONS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

The time has come, hey kitty girl I don’t know if you have been under a rock for a little or are just not a fan of the show Rupaul’s Drag Race but they just released the first 15 minutes of episode 1 and it looks absouloutly amazing! I do have to say and maybe like many but All Stars is my favourite seasons because I love seeing the queens come back and seeing how much they have changed and just really go for the crown. The line up of queens this season is such a good one, for our consideration we have ➡️ Monét X Change ➡️ Latrice Royale ➡️ Trinity Taylor ➡️ Farrah Moan. Valentina ➡️ Monique Heart ➡️ Jasmine Masters ➡️ Naomi Smalls ➡️ Gia Gunn and Manila.

Which to me seem like a really good line up, it was just to much of a tease for me I mean at the end when Latrice and Manila but I am fascinated to find out how Manila and Latrice’s relationship has changed since their disastrous turn on All Stars 1.

THEQUEENSAll Stars fourth season premiere comes just one week after Rupaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular, airing Friday, Dec. 7 at 8/7c. The festive face-off will reunite Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique and Trixie Mattel as they compete for the title of Drag Race’s first-ever Christmas Queen. They’ll lip sync for their lives to tunes off Rupaul’s holiday albums Slay Belles and Christmas Party. Which was a cute mini episode to watch the best part and spoiler ahead ➡️ when Michelle and Ru both lip sync for their lives and the dancer add in is, maybe a little to funny, or sad. Hard to say.

giphy-30
Also how do you feel about the trans element within drag? I mean no real woman dresses and wears makeup like a drag queen so the drag element is still there, it’s still within gay culture – also do you guys remember Ru making a transphobic comment last year? Some say that’s why Gia Gunn is even back, as sort of an apology?

I will keep updating this as we go! Don’t forget as a fan you are more involved then ever this season we have the chance to keep a queen or save a queen that should be, interesting.
