I have evolved!
I have been wanting this with my hair for around three or so years now and have never been brave enough to do it. I have no idea where from, but I found some courage in the new year and booked in at the hairdressers for a colour. Yes, I do not trust myself to dye my own hair ^_^ I think I would have ended up with an orange face!
I have never had my hair coloured properly before. Once I had blonde streaks put in, but I was around 12 years old and it was very natural looking so there wasn’t too much to worry about. Then a few years later I went black, or dark brown, when I hit that ’emo’ stage. I think everyone sees this stage in their rebellious, early teenage years. It lasted a couple of months and I quickly grew out of it.
Since then, all of my dyed hair had grown out and so I decided to go for this orangy-red ombre look.
Now I know what a lot of you are thinking… this is nothing to do with the death of David Bowie. However three years ago, I was still obsessed and wanted to dye my hair orange because of him. I looked online for more subtle hairdos to reflect that of Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane and found this groovy style. I fell in love and from then onward had wanted to dye it. Even though I booked this before Monday, I feel like it holds even more meaning right now.
I absolutely adore my new hair colour and think it looks sooo good. I now have no idea why I was scared of having it done. I still feel funny looking in the mirror like “That’s not me!” hahaha! I’m going to have to get used to this new version of myself. But I love it and I feel more myself than I have for a long time.
I think everyone at some point of their life must adapt and evolve in someway. Trying new things is healthy and exciting, so why not play around with the appearance of your hair?
My only regret about dying it, is that I didn’t do this sooner!
Please let me know what you think of this new look – and honestly if you want to dye yours too… just do it! Life is too short not to take risks.
I’m not one for wearing bright red lipstick on an everyday basis. I tried it for a while and ended up getting it everywhere! However Christmas time is an exception as I think it is such a festive colour that gets you ready for the season.
The lipstick I use is from Maybelline and is called Pleasure me Red (547). I have a lot of trouble with chapped lips in the winter and so I always have to find lipsticks that seem to be long lasting and moisturise at the same time. This one is amazing for doing so as it goes on extremely smoothly and has quite a creamy texture to it. I feel that I can eat and drink and it is still on my lips by the end of the day. The lipstick itself also has an amazing smell to it. It’s kind of a warm vanilla-ry smell which just adds that little extra something to the stick.
What I also love about Maybelline releasing this colour is that they have also made a pencil in the same Pleasure me Red shade. I have never used lipliner before buying this lipstick but it helps so much on application, especially with a darker more vivid shade like this. If you’re going to purchase the lipstick I would highly recommend the liner to go with it too. It has saved me a lot of time.
Please comment below with what you like to wear on your lips at Christmas time, I’d love to know! x
I have fallen in love with this Lipstick.
For ages now I have been searching for the perfect red colour. Not Blair Waldorf, pillarbox red but something with a dark, deeper tone. Every one that I have seen or tried has either ended up to be very red, or has a slight pinkish pigment which made the deep red look more like purple.
But, I have finally landed on the perfect colour.
The lipstick is called Pleasure Me Red from Maybelline in the number 547. It is absolutely gorgeous.
I have found with lipsticks that once you have a drink or after a meal they fade or have vanished completely. However with this one it seems to last a whole day without going anywhere.
When you apply the lipstick it has a wet look to it which instantly makes your lips look fuller.
With the colour being quite dark I decided to treat myself to a lip liner (also in pleasure me red) to assist application.
I’ve never really been into lip liners before or ever really tried them out, but since purchasing this one, I can see there being no turning back. It makes applying dark colours so much easier and seems to make the colour last a lot longer than usual too!
The lipstick is quite creamy and feels as though it is moisturising your lips at the same time. On top of this, it smells amazing – almost vanilla-y.
I would definitely recommend this product, even if the colour isn’t for you, then most certainly try it out in a different shade.
I have been wanting a new lipstick for quite some time now. All the lipsticks I own are from the Natural Collection section in Boots. Don’t get me wrong, it is an amazing brand, however, I wanted to try something new.
I’d heard about Rimmel’s Kate Moss Collection through numerous reviews that I’ve read and so decided to try it out – since purchasing this lipstick, I’ve been non-stop wearing it. It’s gorgeous.
The first thing I noticed about this lipstick is how long it lasts. I’ve never had lipstick that has managed to stay on throughout a meal, let alone an entire day. I was really impressed.
I also love the finished look. Normally with the lipsticks I’ve been using, they always leave a bit of a shiny, greasy finish, as though I’ve added some lip gloss on top. However, this lipstick has such a matte finish, with insane pigmentation that gives it a stand out look.
It tends to go on really thick and has a creamy feel to it which leaves your lips feeling super moisturized.
The shade I chose is Wine (107). It’s so beautiful and I think goes really well with my skin tone. It’s not as red as it looks on the pictures when you see it in the shop – It has more of a hot pink tint to it – but it is equally as nice if not better!I’m super excited about this product and would definitely recommend it to anyone that’s looking for a new lipstick to try out.
I may just go and get a different colour.
You can buy it in your local Superdrug store, or find it online here.
