DYNAMIC DUOS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi beautiful,

⬅️ SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

So, well summer coming to an ending finally and my type of weather rolls in such as, fall and winter I’ve devoted time to include a some new series within MAKEUPANDTHECITY, the first one being ‘dynamic duos’ so two products that marry together really well, because let’s face it, makeup can be a tad bit touchy, I mean you find the perfect foundation then you add a concealer that doesn’t work properly with the other product, so it starts to ball off or it completely removes the previous step once applied.

Believe it or not this is a common makeup mishap and it takes time to marry the correct items and since moving and well, all the other secrets that will come out, I’ve been added to many many more pr lists as I’ve actually started to work with a company that helps me to get my personal name out there and my blog. Within this series there will be high end and also drug store items stent to me for review.

Today’s DYNAMIC DUOS ➡️ TOM FORD foundation plus concealer and PRETTY VULGAR detox and chill lava water foundation primer(this primer is new, and will be in stores September 10/18)but you can’t check it out on PRETTY VULGARS website as of now!

TOM FORD FOUNDATION PLUS CONCEALER ➡️ A full-coverage, waterproof foundation that also functions as an effective concealer to hide noticeable imperfections.

A flawless complexion is essential to the TOM FORD face. TOM FORD’s first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections—from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, and water while maintaining an even complexion.

For me and for the five (5) mix of men and woman I gave this to try (they did know know the brand, finish or type of makeup only that it was a foundation) all kinda said the same thing that it was a nice application, it somewhat hide pores and imperfections but overall did what you would assume a foundation to do until a couple of hours it began to split and become a little caked where the skin wanted to start to produce oil, being a waterproof formula it was hard for the oils to cut through the foundation – which you’d think wouldn’t be an issue since oil is a good way to take waterproof makeup off therefore it would be able to cut through the makeup and sit on top. By the end of the day two (2) our of three (3) noticed that it became very caked on the face and offered a minimal coverage, three of them notice it settling in fine lines, laugh lines, and one (1) of the five (5) used an oil-sheet and it completely removed that patch of foundation.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ results came out pretty much the same during three days and the foundation did not cause any breakouts to oily/acne prone skin!

PRETTY VULGAR detox and chill LAVA water primer ➡️ Reap the many benefits of our Detox and Chill lava water foundation primer by applying the unique charcoal formula on to your skin and watch the color transform into a sheer veil of colorless perfection as it is absorbed. This exotic primer will not only increase the wear time of your makeup, but will provide you with smooth, supple and hydrated skin with its gel like texture that transforms into a cooling burst of antioxidant-rich water beads. The formula also contains blurring and charcoal powders to promote oil absorption & detoxified skin. Overall appearance and condition of your skin will improve due to the high concentration of purified volcanic water enriched with essential minerals obtained from the incredibly lush ecosystem of the Jeju Islands.

So just from reading the description above wouldn’t pairing the two fix all of the issues that we had with the stand alone TOM FORD foundation, giving them the samples jars with the DETOX AND CHILL and TOM FORD foundation over three days and here’s what I found, all five (5) saw an immediate improvement in their skin after applying the primer,

SIDE NOTE ➡️ some would get out of the shower and apply face cream followed by DETOX AND CHILL and some would wait till they were ready to start makeup application or in just tee zone.

The primer made a huge difference, and I know what you’re going to say, that’s what primers are supposed to do but I tried this with three (3) other primers and one (1) of my five (5) had the YSL blur primer and found that they had to be careful with application due to the foundation would start to ball off the skin and it wouldn’t leave an even base.

Everyone had a very similar experience with TOM FORD and PRETTY VULGAR it just melts into the skin and works with the ingredients very well, any problems we faced with the foundation seemed to be taken care of just in the description of DETOX and CHILL so these two products marry very well together and I hope they never get a divorce!

+BEST and -WORST products from TOM FORD | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

What’s up MAKEUPANDTHECITY

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

Lots has happen since I took my break from writing, for example I was able to get myself onto so many more PR lists!

Today I’m going to talk about the best and worst of Tom Ford makeup and skin care. This will become a little series on my blog that I’ll do weekly, +BEST and -WORST and I am pretty excited to start off with Tom Ford as they recently sent me a large bag full or face and body products with me to come!

Tom Ford PR package

The best products so far that I’ve been sent are, number one (1) would have to be by far the older Traceless Foundation with SPF fifteen (15) I absolutely love the way the bottle feels in your hand, and how it’s got the old school Tom Ford look.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I believe that they are going to discontinue this product once they sell through as they have the Traceless Perfecting foundation with SPF fifteen (15) also with the modern packaging and sized dispenser.

The coverage is a little more medium, definitely isn’t full coverage but it can get there with the use of concealer. It’s for all skin types but isn’t the best if you have oily skin but don’t worry, there is a saving grace. This foundation features the skin-nourishing Tom Ford infused complex. This foundation features micronized pigments to achieve seamless and undetectable coverage, while the Infusing Complex nurtures the skin and helps support natural cellular vitality. The foundation offers sheer to medium coverage with a luminous finish.

Price : $87.00US

Next would have to be the Concealing pen which is the number one (1) concealer for under the eyes and creating a cut contour! It’s designed with an unique applicator, the Tom Ford concealing pen delivers an undetectable finish as it camouflages under-eye circles, areas of uneven skin tone, and redness.

If you’re looking for a kick ass concealer that can match up to the price. This is the concealer for you!

Price : $54.00US

Full coverage waterproof ‘concealer’ foundation the reason that I have concealer in quotes is because I still find that you have to use a concealer when you use this product but with that said it is one of the best for oily skin types, it’s not going anywhere, a flawless complexion is essential to the Tom Ford face. Tom Ford’s first full-coverage, waterproof formula conceals flaws as both a comfortable, breathable foundation with a naturally radiant finish and an effective concealer that hides noticeable imperfections—from darkness under the eyes to blemishes on the skin. This hybrid formula withstands harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, and water while maintaining an even complexion.

Price : $104.00(US)

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.

⭐  Four-piece vegan and hypoallergenic hydrating skincare regimen
⭐  Deep dive cleansing gel removes dirt, oil, and waterproof makeup
⭐  Drink of h2o hydrates and protects dehydrated skin
⭐ Pack Your Bags 911 Under eye Rescue Patches soothe and depuff the appearance of tired eyes (use if you have a date, or want your under eye makeup to look fresh)
⭐ 4-in-1 setting mist locks down makeup for up to 12 hours – which is also amazing to spray on your face after you wash it with Deep Dive like a toner (all products contain antioxidant-powered algae to help protect and illuminate skin)

If you want a hydration set that will actually show your skin in a better light then this is the set for you, you will not regret buying it and for the amount of money – it is completely worth every penny and will last you at least four (4) months if not more, a little goes a long way, it can be used in the morning and at night, I used to think that it was a makeup enhancing skin care but I was extremely wrong.  TARTE knows what they are doing when it comes to skin and complexion products but they are owned by KOSE which is a company in China and some of the best skin care comes from Korea and China!
