EOTD - Make Up For Ever 92 - Purple Paradise

I thought the previous look I did was pretty awful so I wanted to make up for it and do something more dramatic. After looking at my previous look, I knew I had to up my game because I knew in my mind that I could have done a better job. I guess it's true what people say, you are your worst critic! So I hope this look suffices. Hope you all like it!

Coral and Purple EOTD

Sorry guys, I'll get to what I used in this look in just a moment. I did this look a few days ago and I can't remember what I used! Overall, not my best look but I couldn't let it go to waste. (:

My Hair Is Red!

Taken indoors. I have yet to see how it looks out in sunlight!

main components:
 1) Developer helps oxidize and open your hair shaft to help the color stick permanently.
I chose number 30 for extra lift.

2) L'Oreal Excellence HiColor HiLights in Red.
Two boxes is required for my hair length and thickness.

You will also need:
3) Gloves
4) Plastic bottle applicator or a plastic bowl
5) Tint brush

I mixed about 1.5 oz of developer per box of hair dye. I started from the bottom portion of my hair, working my way up, doing the top of my head last. I left the dye on for about 30 minutes which is probably more than enough.

This is my first time dying it red and actually having it come out red! I attempted this before but I had forgotten that I previously dyed my hair black which obviously wasn't going to absorb any of the red hair dye. So when I dyed it, it came out really dark red and then faded to brown. Since my hair turned brown I thought it was a good time for me to dye it red again and this time it was a success!

EOTD: Bang On Blue

I decided to play with makeup today. I did it really simple with some blues. Nothing crazy! I was wondering if you guys think my looks are looking repetitive lately. Maybe I just keep using a lot of the same colors. I don't know but hope you all like this one. I was gonna go for a summer look with warm colors but for some reason I keep reaching out for my blues. Oh well!

Oh yeah and in case anyone might ask, I got my shirt in Hawaii. If you're filipino, I'm sure you get it. :P (PS: Don't take it seriously)

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Photos, Swatches and Review

These lipglosses are also a big hit in the beauty buzz. I hear a lot of ladies talking about it and I thought I'd give these a try. I can honestly say that I really like these lipglosses.

At first glance I knew I wouldn't have stopped and looked at these lipglosses if nobody had mentioned how good they were. I'm honestly glad I did! These three shades were the only ones available so I can't really compare them to the other shades. I checked online at the different colors and I'm glad I ended up with these choices.

AVAILABLE AT: Most drugstores. I bought mine at CVS
PRICE: $8 USD (BOGO 50% sale at CVS and Walgreens right now)
SIZE: 0.2 FL. Oz/5.9 mL

Feels moisturizing
No strong scent
Does not dry my lips
Decent pigmentation (depends what color)
Decent lasting wear
→  Cream finish (Lilac Pastelle looks like it has a tiny bit of shimmer but it's not obvious)

The taste. It tastes like I accidently sprayed body spray in my mouth. I'm a little over exaggerating because the taste is there but it's not a very strong taste. But I don't usually have that problem with other lipglosses. It could just be me.

I'm very pleased with my purchase. I feel like I could carry all of them in my makeup bag and never feel like I'm missing a shade to wear during the day (maybe except a nude). I'm definitely gonna keep these in my makeup bag because I don't think I could ever go wrong with these shades no matter what look I'm wearing on my eyes. These colors are perfect for the summertime. Because they're not sticky, it won't feel like you're wearing heavy goop on your lips. I would say of the three shades, my favorite is definitely Coral Reef.
