Benefit Roller Lash


This product has been sold out forever! Yesterday, Izzy and I were doing our shopping
and I just popped into Ulta and the lady said "Oh yeah, we just got it a couple seconds ago"....WHAT! Its about 28 dollars, which is a little bit of an investment for mascara, but trust me it is worth it! I'm going to show, a little bit later, the compare and contrast of using this amazing mascara!

Easy Listening From This Week!

To Pimp A Butterfly - Kendrick Lamar
Mr. Wonderful - Action Bronson


Even though Kendrick Lamar's album was leaked a couple of weeks prior to the album dropping,
Izzy and I decided to swerve the leak and wait until the drop this past Monday.
I feel like if you like an artist, musician, or even designer and everything that they stand for,
you would want to put money in their pocket because you support them wholeheartedly.
The album is an absolutely masterpiece! The title, I heard from a couple of blogs, is supposed to
be a play-on of "To Kill a Mockingbird"

The songs on the album are very racially charged and powerful. A lot of Izzy's friends and I
were having a discussion about it and they were saying how there isn't a centralized flow and it's
sort of all over the place and they really can't listening to it while you're rolling around in the car.
I feel like it isn't for that purpose. I feel like the album is for a purpose, like, you just got off of work, you're pissed at our white society, and it's time for deep-thinking and reflection type of purpose. I listened to it three times ( I know, overkill) to fully understand it. Overall I love it and so does my beloved. The only thing I didn't like, personally, that the song "i" wasn't the studio version; It was a live version instead.

Action Bronson's album was fantastic as well. It has a wonderful, jazzy feel to it with amazing lyricism. THIS is the album for when you are riding around with your homeboys, drinking a 40oz in South Florida. My favorite song is "Baby Blue" featuring Chance the Rapper. The chorus sent me and Izzy into a 2-day long argument because you would swear that Chance was singing the chorus, but it's actually Action singing the chorus! That was a nice, little surprise. This song is when you are going through it with your main chick/ main dude and you want to sing a sad but funny song all in one. Amazing work by Bam-Bam

March "Look-Good, Feel-Good" Haul

 Lush Cosmetics "Mint Julip" Lip Scrub, "Kalamazoo" Beard and Face Wash, "Herbalism" Cleanser 
Badger Man Care Mustache Wax
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
MAC Cosmetics Prep & Prime Lip, Satin Lipstick in "Photo"


So Izzy and I decided to take a gamble at some products that were recommended to us. I have really desert-like skin due to my Eczema and Izzy has been on the endless quest for the perfect beard, so we gave these products a try and so far we love them!

If you suffer from really strange skin, like its crazy ashy or its disgustingly oily, you should definitely try the Herbalism Cleanser for pre-makeup prep. It really strips down your face of all the crap before putting on your foundation and concealer. Also, the Smashbox product is good for after you've cleansed and your pores have opened up. I really holds onto your foundation and makes if feel lighter.

The next product, I feel, gives you the most luscious lips ever! The lady in MAC kind of conned me into getting the Prep & Prime Lip Balm... I'm kind of happy she did because this thing is life! It literally fills in the cracks in your lips and grasps onto your lipstick. This is a MUST HAVE if you love to put on a matte finish lipstick but hate the chapped feeling of it.

The last products are for the manly men. Men are so strange when it comes to using a product religiously if it isn't deoderant, cologne, or soap. My beloved used the Kalamazoo wash from Lush and he said its amazing! First it smells like freaking pineapples! Yes! Secondly, it makes his facial hair so soft and wonderful. This is great for you guys who have loads of facial hair that feels like it can scrub plates clean. Izzy also used the Mustache Wax from Badger Man Care. He has that type of mustache hair that curls and grips onto his lip, so this was great for him to style it the way he wants.

Let us know if we should try anything else down below!
