Was it… was it fireworks? ” In the darkness behind his eyelids, Remus heard a shy laugh, and an answer that set his heart racing. “ Remus, it was an explosion. ”


This is the ultimate pairing for the blackest of lashes!
This week I received these beauties in the post and I’m super excited to share them with you.
You know I’m a lover of all things Natasha Denona, and she has now created a brilliant mascara called #Mascarade which is the newest addition to the Blackest Black collection!

I like to work some of her matte finish Blackest Black eyeshadow at the root of the lashes and then apply a couple of coats of Mascarade mascara!
This creates very dark, luscious, full looking lashes! The formula is rich in pure pigments with zero carbon black.

FYI, Natasha Denona is a cruelty free makeup brand! You can’t get better than that.

In the UK you can purchase Natasha Denona products from @beautybaycom-blog
Elsewhere you can purchase directly from her site, @sephora and @beautylish

Just war rig things

So just about everyone who’s seen Fury Road more than once has picked up on the fact that the War Rig is pretty much a character unto itself. More specifically it becomes significantly dustier as the movie progresses, turning from its matte black finish to a warm ochre. The Rig picks up the yellow-brown dust almost early enough to forget it’s supposed to be matte black, pretty much…right as soon as Furiosa turns off the Gastown road and makes the Rig a tool of her and the Wives’ liberation. And of course, black is the Citadel’s–Immortan Joe’s–color; Citadel flares are black and Joe’s whole color scheme is black and white. The Rig is black when it’s introduced, when it’s clearly a tool Immortan Joe uses to reinforce his rule by controlling the flow of trade, and becomes ochre when Furiosa makes it a tool for her own liberation. (Real subtle.)

But that got me thinking. Clearly it doesn’t take very much for the Rig to go from an intimidating matte black to a worn dusty color. So little, you’d be surprised if it didn’t come back from every run covered in Wasteland red. Which means that every time it comes back it needs to be washed. With water. Precious, precious water. The War Rig–Immortan Joe’s War Rig–is washed after almost every run with that precious symbol of life (and of Joe’s dominion), water. See what I’m getting at?

I’m thinking that the regular washing is a deeply religious ritual for those War Boys fortunate enough to partake. It’s almost like anointment–Immortan Joe’s precious Aqua Cola, used to bless his War Rig before it goes out into the world to carry His Word and His Will.

And this entire theory, the entire mental image with all the religious connotations that I’ve described, comes from the fact that the Rig starts the movie clean and ends it dirty. God damn Miller conveys so much with so little.


Smith & Wesson 629 Stealth Hunter

Chambered in .44 Magnum and sporting a 7.5″ long Magna Ported barrel, the 629 Stealth Hunter is one of Smith & Wesson’s Performance Shop models. It has a very distinct tapered barrel and matte black finish unlike your standard 629. The barrel does allow for the mounting of a revolver scope if you plan on hunting with it. (GRH)
