Review | Urban Decay Naked Basics

Hey there everyone! I know –  being a big beauty junkie –  that whenever I hear the word “naked” I think of gorgeous neutral colors. This is no different!

Let’s first focus on the packaging : It has a soft feel to it. Almost like NARS packagaing. You get 6 full size eye shadows. Five matte, one demi – matte. You also get a mirror that takes up the inside of the lid.

IMG_4294The colors are, in order from left to right, Venus, Foxy, W.O.S, Naked 2, Faint, Crave.

Review | Clairol Nice ‘n Easy Frost & Tip Blonde Highlights

Hello beauties! Over the past week I decided I wanted to highlight my hair. I’ve never colored my hair in any way, so I was really excited when my mom said yes! (Yes, I do have to have my mothers permission for certain things! Haha)

First off, like Four Wedding style, my first impression is a 4/5. It’s a very pretty color and made my hair soft. I had to take off a point because of the process.

Packaging wise, there is nothing to special.

What’s In The Box?

  •  Highlighting powder
  • Developing creme
  • Moisture intensive conditioner
  • Highlighting spatula & hook
  • Mixing tray
  • Highlighting cap
  • Gloves

The process. All I can say is – ugh. I’ve watched my sister get her hair done at home and she never looked like she was in a lot of pain. I guess I have a tender scalp. It took a little over 30 minutes and I felt like I was getting every strand of hair ripped off my head. You know, the normal.

Then you just sit and have your head massaged and get to sit through the hair dye …dyeing your hair. Most people leave it on for an hour, but I only left it on for ten minutes and my hair went from light brown/ dark blonde to a medium blonde.

The result is absolutely gorgeous. After rinsing the color out, I used the aussie 3-minute miracle moist conditioner to get my hair very soft. I love the color, and it looks very natural!
