M x T C REVIEWS THE MOVIE ‘US’ ➡️ SPOILERS

I had a chance to go to the movies lately and it was between Little (Comedy) and US (Triller / Horror) and I think it’s because who I was with but I picked the movie Little, not it at all! I think I walked out, leashing who I was with behind me. I now have a very strong understanding of men and children. All I’m going to say about US from the get go is However clunky and repetitive, Us continues to demonstrate Peele’s understanding that great horror requires metaphors that are insanely great and sometimes twisted to understand. I have personally been quoted saying ever nightmare needs influence and I’m so happy someone got the memo, unless their paying your bills pay them bitches no mind.

You think you’re having a restful summer vacation with your family, but as the night closes in, so does a group of four people who look exactly the same as you and yours—cast in shadows, standing in your driveway. What do they want? All that you are and everything you have.

That’s the nightmare of Jordan Peele’s new horror movie Us. The film centers on the experience of the well-to-do African-American Wilson family; parents Adelaide (Lupita Nyong’o) and Gabriel (Winston Duke), and their daughter Zora (Shahadi Wright Joseph) and son Jason (Evan Alex). These doppelgängers—or Tethered, as Peele refers to them—are the products of a failed U.S. government experiment to create controllable human clones. Now, they have left their underground communes, and want to kill and take the place of their counterparts.

This is the sort of movie that fans will rewatch to appreciate the fillips, the purposeful echoes, the bits of foreshadowing, and the performances. Moss has little screen time, but she shows her genius as her character’s murderous double. Watch her savor the act of putting on lip gloss: Her eyes turn dreamy, and her smile spreads so wide it looks as if it will swallow her face. When she’s the double, her voice is the whistle of someone whose throat has been cut, with a gap between the start of a word in the diaphragm and its finish in the head. It’s like a rush of acrid air from a tomb, further chilled by eyes like boiled eggs, fixed on nothing in this world. The terrestrial Adelaide is more subtly scary; Nyong’o builds extra beats into the performance, lurches and ellipses that keep you from identifying with her too closely. Something’s off — but what?

Peele likes to mix tones and moods, and as he did in “Get Out,” he uses broad humor both for delay and deflection. There’s a cryptic opener and an equally enigmatic credit sequence, but soon the Wilsons are laughing at their vacation home. It’s a breather that Peele uses for light jokes and intimacy while he scatters narrative bread crumbs. There’s a beach trip with another family, this one headed by Kitty (a fantastic Elisabeth Moss) and Josh (Tim Heidecker), who have teenage twin girls. At last, the movie jumps to kinetic life with the appearance of the Wilsons’ doubles, who descend in abrutal home invasion. I feel like US makes US look in the mirror but what happens if we don’t like who is staring back?

My own teeth after four month use of WhiteWithStyle (never had braces or alignment)

Yellow teeth are a very common cosmetic concern for people throughout the United States and Canada. In fact, discolored teeth are one of the largest complaints that people have about their smiles. Thankfully, this concern is one of the most treatable conditions that people suffer from called ➡️ WhiteWithStyle.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ If you want to look wealthier, the first thing you need to do is whiten your teeth. People assume that those with pearly white teeth make more money than those with yellow teeth. Furthermore, people with white teeth are more employable than those with dull, yellowish teeth. Sadly this is completely true also, teeth and eyebrows are the first thing people notice about you so its mega important to take care of yourself, for yourself, not anyone else!

These teeth whiten kits are so amazing, I love them so much, they also offer a sensitive version that was peroxide-free which I do also have and use in between my whitening times, which if you’re going to over use do make sure that you take my advice and get 2 kits 1 kit peroxide-free. If you use code ➡️ MXTC at check out you will save almost 90% the Sparkle White Professional Teeth Whiten Kit so it will be around $28.00 – you can check out the other kits here – mint is the way to go! I do just want to touch base that the price without my code is $269.00 – who doesn’t want to save that money.

Philips – OneBlade | MXTC

This is one for all my guy’s out there, and it’s a massive game changer when it comes to men’s grooming, I’m also going to try to make it a 5 minute read due to the nature of the post, I will say though there is so much coming and I have a lot of things I’m excited to share with you all!

I know I was the last man to find out about Philips OneBlade – and personally I’m a little sad that none of my men didn’t DM me and tell me I happen to know I have 1 or 2 drag queens who follow me – and I know it’s very large within the drag community, although with that thought I’ve never voiced my hate for shaving and getting razor burn easily so that might be my bad so its 50 / 50 blame game.

02ONEBLADEE
Anyone of my dudes out there who didn’t know there was a saviour out there, I got you! Every male should know about Philips OneBlade just because it’s one of the best grooming tools I have ever used. Men don’t talk about their skin a lot or really take care of it but they should, most men suffer from sensitive skin but don’t do anything about it when they should be.

OneBlade is waterproof but I wouldn’t recommend bringing it into the shower with you, you can just wash the tip after you are done with it and spray with a alcohol spray to insure the blade is fully clean and ready for your next use.

Trim ➡️ Trim your beard to a precise stubble length. 3 stubble combs included: 1 mm for a tight trim, 3 mm for stubble and 5 mm for long stubble.

Edge ➡️ Create precise edges with the dual-sided blade. You can shave in either direction to get great visibility and see every hair that you’re cutting. It stays comfortable even on sensitive areas, so it’s fast and easy to line up your style in seconds.

Shave ➡️ OneBlade doesn’t shave as close as a traditional blade – so your skin stays comfortable. Go against the grain and shave off any length of hair easily.

Guard ➡️ Attach the skin guard for an extra layer of protection on sensitive areas.

I don’t think that any man would be unhappy with this grooming tool, as a gift or just because you love him or to treat yourself, it’s the ultimate tool and its my first Can’t Live Without ’19 item because I tried even to just shave normally and it was uncomfortable and I got that stupid bumps from the razor it doesn’t matter of there is one blade to 8 blades, it always happens to me from sensitivity.

RIDE OR DIE PRODUCTS | MAKEANDTHECITY

So with it being 2019 – it’s a new year and a new start to do better then last year, we all have those products that are our ride or die, we use them daily and freak out a little when we see we are starting to run out. Hey guys, I hope you had a nice week! TGIF! We are going to be looking at my favourite beauty items and hopefully I can turn you on to something new for the new year. New year, new you! Some of the products I’m going to talk about you will see in more details. I believe in the products mentioned and I believe the companies can grow – all products have been sent to me via PR or direct from company, unless mentioned.

There is going to be no particular order or anything like that, I don’t want anyone to think that I like one brand more then another brand, also we are all different which is nice, so something that might work well for me – doesn’t work so well for you and your skin. All we can do is try new thing until we come up with our must have list. There is going to be some items that isn’t skin care or makeup as well!

SIDE NOTE ➡️ I am a firm believer that sometimes you have to change up your skin care, it doesn’t have to be anything dramatic it can be something so small as changing your toner, or to a more moisturizing formula in the cold harsh winter life.

➡️ THE MAKEUPDROP™
One thing that I love and actually have a couple of for different reasons is The Zip Pouch by the MakeupDrop, they are so cool looking and the perfect size for all that you would need including brushes, the design of this bag is wonderful, a hard plastic material that stands tall on its own, with it’s holographic and transparent design, it’s the cutest addition to everyone’s beauty arsenal.

Next is something I just discovered but I absouloutly love so much called Restore* Wipes for you face and neck, the packaging is eco-friendly and so clever the way they made it come to be, The Restore* Wipes are individually packaged, making them great for on-the-go. With ingredients such as Chamomile, Cucumber, Jojoba, Aloe and more, Restore* Wipes deliver the proper nutrients to restore skin back to a calm and glowing state. It’s pretty much skin care in a wipe which I love so much because you get such an amazing feel from the wipes before you was your face, so the extra care your skin needs is there. They are also free of Parabens, Sulfates, Triclosan, Dyes, PEG’s, and Animal Byproducts.

Move over BeautyBlender – hello Hybrid Blender, Wow is all that I can say and this brand is a brand that I heart and soul believe in, I love the branding, the image and the 2019 forecast of products, but this blender is like a brush and a BeautyBlender had a child – Revolutionize your makeup game with the Hybrid, the perfect two-in-one applicator for liquid and cream makeup products. The flat Silicone Drop is a clean and product saving surface for an initial application, or sculpting and outlining. The super soft & latex-free Sponge is ideal for that flawless airbrush finish. For those who wear a full face of makeup, this blender takes you from base, contour even to lipstick and everything in between.

➡️ CLARISONIC
I can’t say enough good things about my Clarisonic Alpha, it’s helped my skin in so many ways just to help get that extra clean and to make sure that all of the environmental pollutions, dead skin cells, stop the pores from even becoming clogged in the first place, the only thing I can say, if you buy one of these devices make sure you use it everyday and put the work in because it will change the look of your skin. It also minimizes water retention in the face and neck which creates more collagen and stronger skin without the needle! Removes dirt, sweat and oil for healthier looking skin and boy, does it ever!

clarisonic-alpha-fit-for-men-review-720x540

➡️ MAC 
This one I think is on everyone’s top love list and that is the MAC studio fix powder plus foundation which works amazingly but, that truly only if you know what your actual correct shade. SO I did a little test, I went to the MAC PRO store and asked my shade and got NW15, next, I went to the MAC inside The Bay, there I was told I’m NC15 – I think point I’m like how the hell.. So I went into the MAC store when I was shopping in Buffalo and they said I was N5. So I was just so confused again, I guess it depends on the person that you ask, but shouldn’t MAC of all stores have some kind of system or training to properly, I understand my skin tone, undertone and MAC’s color system so the first man was correct, I am in fact NW15, I guess I’m just saying make sure you get a couple opinions of what is right, for you. Studio Fix really is that one-step powder foundation that gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte finish with medium-to-full coverage and a velvety texture that allows skin to breathe. Long-wearing, colour-true, non-caking, non-streaking, non-settling/creasing, non-fading – all for 12 hours. Available in a wide range of colours.

➡️ ZIIP BEAUTY
So this will be one of the most expensive tool I will be talking about but if you’re my age and are not yet ready for filler or botox (done right) or if it’s not even your avenue, it’s your body and your face – always do what makes you happy, ZIIP Beauty is the ultimate tool for well, everything. What it isZIIP is an electrical facial in the palm of your hand. We use nanocurrents and microcurrents to communicate with your skin cells, increasing their effectiveness, prompting them to heal, and encouraging them to make an abundance of collagen and elastin. The result is healthy, lifted, glowing skin that gets better over time. One of the best parts of ZIIP is the APP that you download to sync in whatever treatment that you’d like there is so many, ranging from 12min to 1min quick fix, ENERGIZE ➡️ FILL / LIFT / GLOW ➡️ SENSITIVE ENERGIZE ➡️ CALM / HEAL / TONE ➡️ INSTANT GRATIFICATION ➡️ LIFT / SCULPT / AWAKEN ➡️ PIGMENT ➡️ TREAT + PREVENT / MELASMA / SUN SPOTS ➡️ TOTAL CLEARING ➡️ TREAT + PREVENT / ACNE / BACTERIA ➡️ QUICK FIX ➡️ TREAT PORES / UNDEREYE / FINE LINES ➡️ VITAL EYES ➡️  FOR PUFFINESS / DARK CIRCLES / FINE LINES. ZIIP Beauty costs over $500.00US but truthfully if it’s a substitute for botox and fillers then it’s worth every penny – if you have hooded eyes, after one month of treatment, say bye-bye hooded eyes. I can’t even describe to you how ZIIP feels when you are using it on your face, but you can see the results after one use.

ziipitydo
SIDE NOTE ➡️ You have to keep repurchasing the conductive gel which can become costly because you have to use a lot, at least ten pumps for each ZIIP use, Conductive Gel is the link between your ZIIP and your skin. All of our gels start with the ZIIP Electric Complex, a combination of pharmaceutical-grade glycerin, a sugar complex that is one of the most conductive materials on earth, and dehydrated seawater, which is saturated with electrolytes magnesium, potassium, and sodium. The Electric Complex effectively and safely transfers electrical currents from the ZIIP Device to the skin. GOLD CONDUCTIVE GEL – $150.00 SILVER CONDUCTIVE GEL – $50.00

➡️ MAKE UP FOR EVER
Iconic Ultra HD technology
for flawless, invisible coverage is now available in concealer form. Coated pigments diminish the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and imperfections, and immediately set. The smoothing, hydrating, creamy liquid captures and diffuses light so that skin that appears bright, flawless, and fresh all day. What I do love about this concealer and the HD technology is that it’s undetectable even under 4k which will just show you how it will look like skin and not apply well, like Shape Tape, this concealer is self-setting so there is no need to powder the concealer, but you can still use a powder if you like, it will not make it look bad or cakey in anyway, I know everyone likes to set and forget and that still applies to this concealer, but, it’s just to good of a concealer. If you are male, it’s particularly amazing for our skin – it seems to work very well with our testosterone.

These are just a few of my ride or die products, I will do a complete list very soon or do monthly favourites.

MAKEUPFOREVER | SELF-SETTING CONCEALER | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi there, Nope, You’re reading the title right, I am blogging about the same Self-Setting concealer but at the time I did it came out in PR and wasn’t out just yet so I’m going to cover it again because, and for no other reason than, it’s just that good – prepare you’re self for what I predict to be the concealer of 2019 and I have a feeling it will be out of stock a lot on the shades that you’re going to want and or need! Also if you’re new to the industry you may have heard that MUFE is cutting out PR and that is absouloutly true – they are going to keep Micro-Influencers and some larger ones but they will not be going forward with updating a media list, but they are going to be making the professional discount a lot easier to receive recognizing all avenues of beauty and industry standards. I am left with one question – is 2019 the year to kiss the powders goodbye?

We’re only two days into 2019, and it’s looking like one hell of a year for innovative complexion products. The latest brand to change up the game is Make Up For Ever, which is solving all of our makeup woes with its new Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer. Make Up For Everis releasing a concealer that sets itself and promises to stay put. That’s right, you can forget about setting your makeup with a translucent or foundation powder, because the new Ultra HD concealers will do the work for you. This is especially great if you’re looking to cut down steps in your routine and if you want to steer clear of drying powders (or toxic ingredients in our lungs) during the winter season. The new complexion products come in 22 shades (at first launch). The formula offers a creamy, medium coverage that glides on seamlessly. According to Make Up For Ever, the concealers are crease-free for up to 12 hours ➡️ this is all without a setting powder.

04maxresdefault
It also has light coated pigments diminish the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and imperfections, and immediately set. The smoothing, hydrating, creamy liquid captures and diffuses light so that skin that appears bright, flawless, and fresh all day. So pretty much for boys in makeup who don’t want to walk out of the house like Patrick Starrr and there is no hate there, it just seems to do something that I have always wanted from a concealer and you can get as close as you want and you cant tell at all its there. Under the eyes, small bit around the nose area, a dot on the chin, and I’m done and out the door.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ According to a press release sent to MAKEUPANDTHECITY
(I feel so official), Make Up For Ever will discontinue its current Ultra HD Concealer formula for the new one. Does anyone love this one? I never really got into it so I’m not overly upset.

04makeup-forever-ultra-hd-concealer-2019-review-4-650x43043
There is so much to be said about this concealer and I urge you to get and pay the $35.00CAD for 5ML because it’s such an amazing concealer and it’s a good step in the right direction for makeup in 2019! You can take a better look for yourself and buy if you’d like too right here.
