Spring flowers bring blonde hours, of styling, shopping, dancing and dreaming. We own the sky. It’s coming alive. As the season brings brighter suns and deeper roses, we can open up our creative minds to do things we’ve never dreamed of before. Take a day to just sit in your apartment and do. Buy a canvas or a sketch book and lose yourself, see what happens. Cook something with no instructions and invite your friends over to make masks or take polaroids with paint and stickers. I believe in the healing power of art and creativity. If you’re feeling stuck or down, get creative! I swear it will break you out of your rut. Also, listen to Grimes and the XX on repeat.

I lose my faith a thousand times a day. Eyes wide open for the fall. I want to be a diver. Show me love or take away my fears. Under covers. You spin me round like a doll. You pull my strings till there’s nothing left. It’s so tragic. Seaside love is automatic. Realists and romantics. White noise, foaming waves. Salty hair, don’t tell me how to be.

If there’s one beauty product that you should replace often, it’s mascara. We actually have living mites on our beautiful little lashes, so it’s good to change up your mascara every 3-6 months. This will help you avoid building up bacteria that can potentially lead to infection. But with so many mascaras on the market, ranging from 5 to 30 dollars, is it worth it to pay the extra? Or not because it’s something you have to replace so often? I decided to take a look for myself.
I picked three different mascaras all ranging somewhere along the price scale. First we’ve got the classic Maybelline’s Great Lash, followed by L’Oreal’s Voluminous False Fiber Lash, and lastly, Mac’s new Haute & Naughty too black lash.
Let’s start with the cheapest, Maybelline’s Great Lash, retailing in at a mere five bucks. The classic little pink case that your big sister was allowed to have before you. It’s got a custom curl brush to glide on the product smoothly. Shaped brushes seem to help life and curl lashes for thickness. The ingredients include water, beeswax, shellac as well as some other common chemicals. It doesn’t give great volume, but the custom curl brush is easy to use. I’d recommend it for anyone just starting out or not looking to spend a lot.
Next we have L’Oreal’s Voluminous False Fiber Lash. Retailing at a little over 9 dollars, it’s a bit of a price jump. Based off my own test run, and some research, this mascara seems to clump a lot. The brush is pretty ordinary and doesn’t seem to do anything special in regards to it’s volumizing claims. Ingredients include water, beeswax, and surfactants such as potassium cetyl phosphate. The upside to the ingredients in this mascara is that it doesn’t seem to have shellac, which is usually derived from animals and a common allergen for some people. The package says it’s allergy tested. So if you’ve got an allergy it’s probably worth the price jump to get something that won’t irritate you.
Lastly we have Mac’s new Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash. Retailing at a little over 20 dollars, I picked up this product last week and was intrigued by the dual lash system. It has a pink brush for a lighter look and a sparkly purple brush for a heavier coat of the product. The dual system is easy to use, and does look different upon application. The product goes on really well and doesn’t clump. As far as ingredients go, in addition to having water and similar binding chemicals like the others, the Mac mascara contains Panthenol and Acacia Senegal gum. The Panthenol is a provitamin of B5 and usually appears in hair moisturizers and humectants due to its ability to bind to the shaft and create a seal. The Acacia Senegal gum is a natural gum derived from the sap of the acacia tree. It’s used as an adhesive for pigments in many makeup products. Sounds good right?! The downside? In the entirety of this mascara, these two probably take up around 1% or less of it’s total composition. Chemically, that’s not enough to do much of anything.
Conclusion? If we’re talking about the science, these products are virtually the same. So initially you’d say why pay more for the same chemical compound? But what I think you’re paying for when it comes to mascara is the brush. The application process and shape of the bristles has a lot to do with how the product goes on. I think it’s worth paying extra for a better applicator because the end result will be more desirable. It’s especially important to take the small price increase if you know you have allergies.
In the end, it’s up to you. Chemically, you’re not really getting anything different. So if you know how to make miracles with a five dollar brush, then by all means, work your magic mama!

Wilma + Winston tucked away inside a house in the suburbs. Suburban life. You must create your own fun. They say you create your own reality. If that’s so, I’m creating mine out of 6 inch platforms, snowman rice krispies, cats, floating hamburgers and nachos.
Your Mom worked hard to create a happy home but you fucked it up out of boredom. That’s ok. Get her a matching holiday sweater and call a truce. I wish you were weird.

Fifteen kids blasting out of a thrift shop on St. Marks with skate boards, bikes and fur coats. Watch the Throne. The tribe is back… like they ever left this bitch. What you know about getting asked to take your beanie off for a mug shot? 4AM in LES, jumping off buildings in all black. Late night vultures, champagne swigs as I swing left and right on my skateboard, pass it to the next and drop down into the bike lane.
Let them know who you are. She say she from brooklyn, but I just left her place in LES. It’s the mob so you’ve got get blood-sworn in. We burn shit down. So sophisticated.
You say finding somebody real is your fucking problem? Bring your bitches to the tribe, maybe we can solve em’.
