MAKEUPANDTHECITY x SMASHBOX – next chapter in MASTER CLASS! ★ exclusive ★

What’s up makeupandthecity, 

So today I experienced an act of kindness that was super super nice, I met a guy who was really nice and he offered for me to come by the coffee shop that him and his sister owned and I said I wanted to get some espresso and coffee for blogging and I wrote down my page for him to check out, long story short it was right around the corner from me! 

So I decided to bring them a couple of free products for men and some for his sister who he said would also be there! So I get there and it’s closed, so I’m like hmm, that’s kinda strange but he saw me and ran to the door and let me in and he said he was waiting also an hour for me so I was like wow thank you but you didn’t have to do that I thought it was 24/7 and I always said here I brought you and your sister some things, they loved them and were so thankful and he told me I could get anything I wanted on him and I offered to pay but he wouldn’t let me. 

It was just really nice that they would stick around an hour after they closed for me (and had no clue when I said I would be coming and he was very handsome) and I’m really happy to have made two new friends in New York so Google or go too CUPPING ROOM CAFE in NEW YORK CITY because they were simply amazing and the espresso was amazing also! Packs a punch! I didn’t have a photo so I just used a snapchat location and cropped it so it looked a little pretty. 

I will for sure, for sure be going back maybe when they are open to try the menu!

It seems when SMASHBOX sets releases a new master class I always seem to get them first which makes me happy – I try to not talk about overly talked about item or items that are, well, hyped up. 

I love this SMASHBOX MASTER CLASS because it’s almost like a little factory in a box to literally create custom shades that you want too with eye shades and lips shades almost how it would be done in a factory which is so so so cool. 

Let’s break it down ➡️ it’s an eye, lip, and face palette of eighteen (18) essential shades and eleven (11iridescent duo-chrome transformers that instantly step up your makeup possibilities – this palette will take you almost to smashbox studios testing and creating shadows and lipsticks, being playful, from lips to cheeks you’ll learn to master the on-set technique SMASHBOX’s pro makeup artists use to create and instantly reinvent looks with transformer shades. 

This palette features four palettes of essential lip, cheek, and eye colors to create endless looks on their own, or mix with transformers to create over seventy six (76) additional eyeshadows, eighteen (18) lipstick colors, and four blush tones that let you play with a new look every day.

Each palette pops in and out for effortless on-the-go customization which is pretty cool and seems to be included in all the new master class from SMASHBOX. 

It reallly really reminds me for all of you guys and girls out there who have loved SMASHBOX from the get go they used to have a little four triangle pan eyeshadow transformer that you applied over older shadows to breath new life into them and change them completely in fact I think I still have one some where in my archives of makeup – yeah I don’t play around. 

With one swipe, wearable day looks effortlessly turn into attention-grabbing night looks, silky mattes suddenly sparkle, and neutral lips get amped to vamp. 

Oh yes – this master class is one to grab from SMASHBOX and let me tell you if you’re a collector of masterclass you would know how beautifully they can be added to a book shelf and look just like books. If you’re new to makeup and have been collecting the masterclasses by now you’d have it on point. They truly do teach you pro-tips and give you industry insight that you wouldn’t find anywhere! 


SIDE NOTE ➡️ to get you started, SMASHBOX L.A. photo studio pros included three get-the-looks and shade-mixing tips for blending killer color combinations as they also way add to any box, palette, they never won’t teach you a little bit about the products but creating is up to you! 

PRICE ➡️ $80.00 (valued at $300.00) 

Sadly, like all MASTER CLASS by SMASHBOX they are limited edition and only available at Sephora but you can buy it or check it out here!

This product is also formulated without • sodium lauryl sulfate • parabens • phthalates and is cruelty-free. 


Over all I really can’t see anyone being sad with this palette the almost chemistry feel of it and making your own personal shades as you mix and match – who knows could spark your imagination and your on your way to your own cosmetics company!

NEW AND NOW | YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT LE CUSHION | *sent in consideration of review*

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH YSL FUSION INK CUSHION FOUNDATION (because there not pretty much the same thing) this is a main issue with CAN vs. US launches.

Cushion foundation with customizable radiance and coverage: a natural or sophisticated finish with simple and effortless application. A unique dimmer  puff and radiant formula for a no make-up feel that offers a customizable radiance & coverage and a cooling hydration.
Customizable radiance: a luminous glow from sheer to intense.
Customizable coverage: a flawless complexion from natural to fuller coverage.

Cooling hydration: a light and blendable texture, enriched with a moisturising and antioxidant complex, for a fresh andradiant complexion. 

I was pleasantly surprised when it came to this on the go makeup I mean not like I would sit in a car and apply my makeup – but the concept is pretty, well, neat! yet the idea of this on-the-go makeup has been pretty big – and although I don’t see much of a difference bettween this and the Givenchy (link below) teint couture cushion portable fluid foundation which I must say is a huge plus in packaging and stunning quality. Something I really want you to remember with these brands turned cosmetic companies 70% of what you’re paying for is THE NAME! Anyways – what this makeup claims is pretty true for the most part but getting it to that “full coverage” is not so easy, plus you do not get a lot of product in this component either, sadly.

TOUCHE ÉCLAT LE CUSHION
SIDE NOTE ➡️ this is not a fluid product it’s a very very pigmented powder but not it’s almost like a dust-powder if that makes any sense at all in some country’s but in US and Canada it is a fluid type foundation.


The top of the sponge from my perspective it’s the top on my hand right now is very very fluffy, and the bottom is more like a traditional makeup sponge? I know most don’t use the sponge that comes with it I personally use them as stoppers from touching my clients skin(face) while doing waterline eyeliner or brows (little trick) I guess it’s for “tapping” the skin and for “sliding” the product onto the skin.

Remember to use a primer, a good primer if you don’t want to get “cakey” fast. Sadly.
