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)

Check back for part two (2) tomorrow!

Good morning makeupandthecity,

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!!

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!

TOP FIVE (5) IT! COSMETICS PRODUCTS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Happy Halloween, makeupandthecity..

PRESS PLAY AND LISTEN WITH ME!
⬅️SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON (let’s get to three (3) million)

I used too work with IT! cosmetics before the L’Oréal take over and now that they have a massive back up to help the small company evolve and grow to a multi-million dollar well known company, I wanted to wait a bit before working with IT! cosmetics just to see the direction that they would go. Since reaching out I’ve been sent some press samples to use and try out on set and via print and I’m happy to bring you the top five (5) products from IT! cosmetics.

topficve

the first product would have to be Bye Bye Pores Primer they are a lot of primers out there and they all have claims to be the best but when it comes to real results it doesn’t work out so well – but with this primer the claims are all 100% true, as soon as you apply Bye Bye Pores Primer to your skin you immediately look airbrushed and the skin looks better, even wearing this primer alone leaves the skin with benefits which again is a major plus. Some of the main reasons this primer works so well is some of the main ingredients of moroccan lava clay, colloidal clay, purifying charcoal, papaya fruit extract, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides and niacin – plus exclusive Bye Bye Pores Optical Blurring technology. When I wore this primer it did not clog my pores and is oil-free, it also didn’t melt under studio lights and lasted through sweat, even on acne prone no acne was made worse or developed due to Bye Bye Pores Primer.ITPRIMERBYEBYE
DID YOU KNOW ➡️ Almost all products from IT! cosmetics are developed with plastic surgeons.

Next product that is a must ➡️ You Sculpted Face (and body) Universal Contouring Palette which I actually have two of because the last time I did a product pull I picked this product and have had it for two (2) years, there are a few small changes now in packaging and some shades but it has it all from warm, cool tones to matte highlight shades – Talc-free, and perfect for all skin types and skin tones, these shades are infused with anti-aging collagen, silk and peptides to blend effortlessly and deliver smooth, natural-looking coverage that lasts all day with six (6) universally flattering shades.

ityousculptedNext ➡️ Brow Power is an amazing eyebrow pencil and it’s waterproof which is a major plus and the shades that they offer are pretty cool – it’s almost as if they found a way to add a light and dark tone into one shade for a more natural and real applied brow (put to the test against ABH brow products and came out on top) The custom 1.4mm tip, combined with the built-in brow grooming spoolie delivers the look of real hair to your brows with precise hair-by-hair like application that adheres to skin and looks like real hair in just seconds – you achieve long-wearing, budge-proof and sweat-proof results easily and extremely quickly.itbrowpowersuperskinny Next ➡️ Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder with SPF 50+ the fact that they mention airbrush in the name is smart because that is exactly what you’re going to get is beautiful airbrushed skin that is effortlessly blended and left unbelievably even – the lightweight powder instantly transforms the look of your skin with a veil of optical-blurring pigments, and visually camouflages imperfections while providing powerful sun protection. Infused with hydrolyzed silk, hydrolyzed collagen, niacin and peptides, the talc-free formula also gives you completely buildable coverage that never settles into lines or pores and restores your complexion with loads of skincare benefits and flawless results.

complete must have for everyone and every skin type, especially if you’re just running around and you quickly blend it all over and pat with sponge in areas you need fuller coverage.

Superhero™ 4-in-1 Eye Transforming Super Shadow and Liner Brush has to be one of the coolest brushes I’ve seen in a while and is for sure one (1) of the top five (5) products for me – To experience your Superhero™ eyes, use the eyeshadow brush end to apply your all-over shadow. Slide up the brush base one click to buff in your crease shadow. For added definition, slide up the brush base another click and smudge shadow along your lower lash line. To finish, use the angled eyeliner brush end to effortlessly apply your liner.

economic handle and custom-cut brush heads for easy, controlled application.
