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?

LIKE SAND THROUGH THE HOURGLASS | M X T C

I’m sorry, I had to title today’s post that, I’m sure you get we will be breaking down some new, some iconic and some not that the brand aimed way to high for and it just, flopped, hard. Anyways, wonderful Saturday to you all! Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s day which used to mean a lot of alcoholic beverages for a lot of different people, maybe I will go out and have a few but my man is working and is a lead chef in a restaurant so, it’s a bigger night for anywhere that has booze on the menu. I actually stopped drinking, and I wish I had a huge from the bottom up story or waking up in strange places or something but I don’t really, alcohol just isn’t good for your body, skin or mind.  Plus it’s very easy too cross a line when you drink that you can’t come back from. So I guess all I can say is, be safe, be with friends, and be smart.

Alright, so now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about Hourglass luxury beauty, and yes all items talked about will be added into the giveaway if you have been following any previous post TGIF! WhiteWithStyle | M X T C check that out and pop back to continue, I can wait! I don’t mind! I absouloutly love Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation, I think it’s one of the all time best products out there, pop culture would also agree with me, and you know what they say, don’t mess with a classic – They came out with a full liquid version of Vanish, with some big and I mean big claims ➡️ no primer needed ➡️ half a pump to do the entire face ➡️ second skin natural finish! Hourglass said that it they feel its the future of foundation.

Weightless, instant full coverage is delivered through the formula’s innovative coated pigments—allowing for seamless application and a long-wearing, second-skin adherence. A natural finish is delivered through light-refracting microspheres, blurring and smoothing any imperfections for virtually perfect skin. With all of that being said there is a lot of mixed reviews so put every claim to the test over two weeks to find out exactly what was up, I found that it does oxidize quickly and become shade(s) darker quickly, it sticks to dry areas and really shows off any little flake of dryness, there is no natural finish this is drying and matte, make sure if you choose the route of no primer, use a rich moisturizer and bring a touch up compact if you’re going anywhere because I found that it lifted on and around the nose, chin and sides of the eye, strangely.

I would say to go into your Sephora and ask them to make you a good sized sample because the sample jars that Sephora has are supposed to fill for a two week use and give it a try because it is also more exspensive the iconic stick formula.

$56.00US, 32 shades  on Hourglass.com

Ambient® Lighting Edit ➡️ Volume 4, I love these little palettes so much, and I know a lot of people don’t understand Ambient® Lighting from Hourglass but its kind of like different color settings on a ring light, cool, warm, etcetera but brought to life, when you understand how to use these powders they can change your makeup game forever and the palettes are a good way to start to collect them – I could do without the hot pick metallic shell though I wish they would have kept it more gender neutral as they do but pink is a guys color also, I guess, just not mine.

ambient-lighting-edit-volume4
➡️Formulated with photo luminescent technology to capture, diffuse and soften surrounding light for skin that appears softer, younger and lit from within.

Sold individually for $48.00US on Hourglass.com

Sold in three pan palette for $64.00US on Hourglass.com

Limited edition six pan palette (Holiday 2018) sold for $80.00US on Hourglass.com (SOLD OUT)

I will edit this post if the items does come back into stock but I do have one in the giveaway and if you wish to win it you’re going to keep reading the spring themed product reviews or events.

Make sure everyone is safe this St. Patrick’s day,

MAKEUP BAGS, AND YOU | MxTC

Happy Tuesday to you, oh yeeeees grandma you! 🙂 Welcome to MAKEUPxTHECITY, do you ever just wake up in such a good mood, knowing your love is beside you, I know I am the only one who wakes up at (and anywhere between) 4:00am-6:30am I just can’t help it, now don’t get it twisted, I could fall back to sleep! I just love my little drive to get my espresso and my coffee downtown, typically I go for a run but with the snow I go every other day; I always have such a love hate relationship with the weekend, don’t get me wrong I enjoy not putting so much time into work and having some time to write which sometimes I will write a couple of things and send them in a draft to the brand, or company or whatever, saying this has already been set and timed to a day, these are my thoughts – if its a sponsored post or whatever it is, I don’t allow them to change my words as once it is locked in to go, it can’t be changed which I love a lot about working with TrustPilot and I thank them allowing me to handle my own PR for my own space and be my own management, back to what I’m here to talk about! I know you all like my little rants, and talks in my introduction!

Today I want to talk about a few makeup bags that are for more personal use or for a small set call, you can also keep them within your luggage or weekend bag as a little add on and they are absouloutly stunning especially if you like classic, clear, halo type, toss and go, or organize to the gods.

Some are a little more exspensive and some are a little cheaper but none are a lacking quality and protection of whatever is inside! That’s a promise!

Firstly, we have Artis and you know I don’t mess around with price tags if the quality is there, yes, oh yes, my PR list grows and grows but it is in no way like oh hi, yes, I ran out of my liquid diamond gel can you sent me another one! thanks sooooooooooooo much. Yeah no it just doesn’t work like that, PR is for influencers to one – try the product or whatever first, two – for consideration to write about or blog about it and get it across to your subscribers, three – repurchase. Yes they are good with sending a package on or around your birthday of some items they know and are aware that  you like, which is super sweet and they do not have to do that!

But back to Artis and their makeup holders, they change by season and by holidays, for example for Valentine’s day they became red which I really applicate having different colors, especially for travel, and on the note of travel they also come in small, medium and large – all of the bags from Artis has a place for your needed brushes to remain safe and on the other side a mesh bag (see photos below) the newer
bags are very beautiful they are fully black with a thin layer of plastic around the zipper, with ARTIS over pattern, one of my personal favourites.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Artis is giving away a luxury makeup case as a gift right now when you spend $75+ which is a good deal considering the price of the bag alone.

The next makeup bag is Ariana Grande approved, its from the brand TheMakeupDrop, and the reason I say its Ariana Grande approved is for good reason for her new tour all of the bags you bring in have to be clear so that security can see what you have inside, we all remember what happen at the singers concert in Manchester, sadly and truthful absouloutly devastating and wrong, anyways to take a look at Ariana Grande$8.00 tour bags check it out here on iheartradio that’s getting a bit off topic but it falls under the realm of something that is important to shine light on, for me anyway, one of the best parts of this bag also if it’s only $15.00 which is a great price for everyone!

What do you think? Pro Makeup bags? or it doesn’t matter to you really?
