L’OREAL Colorista Hair Dye Review!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m reviewing a new hair color line I’ve recently discovered: L’OREAL Paris Colorista! If you’ve been following me on Instagram for the last few months, you may know that I’ve been trying out a couple of different colors from this line. I’ve been trying to get a good idea of its lasting power and color pay off. I think it’s fair to mention that the Colorista hair dyes are not created equal. Some definitely last longer than others.

Before I go any further, I need to explain my hair situation. I have thick, fine, curly hair that has been highlighted, which is why the color shows up on the ends of my hair and not my roots. If you have brunette hair, they have a line of Colorista hair dyes made specifically for you. Since I have only tried the colors for blondes, I don’t know how long those dyes last. Ok, moving on!

After trying a multitude of different hair colors from BLEACH LONDON and having to dye my hair every week to keep my color, I knew that I needed a change in my routine. Once I heard about the Colorista Hair Dyes, I used their Wash Out Shampoo to get the pink out of my hair. WARNING: DO NOT USE THIS if you don’t want to bleach your hair! I had no idea that this product contained peroxide since it is not mentioned on the box and it damaged my hair!

After the pink was washed out, I began dying my hair with the Purple dye. I left it on my damp hair for about 30 minutes without mixing in any conditioner.

Here’s what my hair looked like after I styled it (Forgive the camera quality. I used my iPhone):

BLEACH LONDON The Big Pink Review!

Hi, fashionistas!

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may know that back in June I permanently dyed my hair pastel pink! I had been waiting to do it for a long time, and it was definitely worth the wait! Even though in the beginning it was everything I hoped it would be, unfortunately, the color didn’t last as long as I had hoped. Within a month or so I noticed a huge difference and it had almost returned to blonde. As a result, I decided that it was time to try out some semi-permanent options. That’s when I discovered my new beauty obsession: BLEACH LONDON!

Here’s my hair after I dyed and styled it:

BYBB Makeup Palette REVIEW!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m reviewing the Be Yourself Be Beautiful (BYBB) Makeup Palette! For this review, I created a makeup look featuring every product in the palette. The palette includes four eyeshadows, two lip glosses, one blush, and one bronzer. I really wanted to do something different with this look by creating a romantic twist with a loose side braid and bejeweled headband.

Before I get to the good stuff, here are pictures of the makeup look that I created using the BYBB palette:

Glam & Bold Makeup Look!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m showing you a makeup look that screams “I’m a glamazon and I’m not afraid to show it!” In my experience, a bold lip color and shimmery eyeshadow are my go-to’s for a glamorous look, but you can also create an elegant look in a hundred different ways! The options are endless, but I tend to gravitate towards red lipstick for an old-Hollywood feel.

Here’s the look:

VERNEZ App Review!

Hi, fashionistas!

Today, I’m letting you know about a new must-have fashion app called VERNEZ! It’s available only for iPhone users for now. This is one of my favorite apps, because you can create your own magazine by putting together outfits using shoppable items, follow other members, and “hype” (like) their posts! It’s a community full of stylish girls supporting each other! It’s everything you could want in an app and more!

The format of creating outfits is similar to Polyvore but still has some differences, and you know how much I love Polyvore! Two of the main differences are that you can create your dream wardrobe and can become a recommended (featured) member. There are endless options and fabulous clothes and accessories to choose from!

Here are screenshots of some of the amazing outfits users have made:

Hi, fashionistas!

As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month! This month, people all over the world, get decked out in the color pink to show their support for breast cancer awareness. This is a great way to support those who are being treated for this disease and those who have survived it.

During Pink October, many companies raise money through percentages of purchases by customers like you and give it to organizations who are trying to find a cure. One of the companies who are trying to help is Glamulet.
