So to create this look I used Colour Freedom’s Pink pizazz hair dye. Now if you’ve been following me for a while now you know that I am religious when it comes to Colour Freedom. There excellent when it comes to colour, quantity and value.

If you want to buy some from Superdrug (which I recommend because then you get Superdrug points and more money to buy more hair dye) then click the link below.

Spooky Halloween Hair.

Fashion., Hair Dye Reviews

ello lovelies! So today I thought I would share with you my very exiting tutorial for spooky hair for the spooky halloween season!

So people feel like green hair is a very hard colour to pull off, but it’s honestly not!

I used Green Emerald by Colour freedom and it gave me such a dimensional look. For the darker blonde bits of my hair, a foresty green. For the lighter bits of my hair a vibrant grass green.

If you want to see how I created this look then please watch my tutorial below!

RAINBOW HAIR WITH COLOUR FREEDOM

Hair Dye Reviews

Colour Freedom kindly sent me a giant bundle of hairdye to create my own rainbow hairstyle and my creative mind was set alight.

The wig I ordered was a Sleek human hair wig in shade 613, which was a more yellow blonde then white blonde as described but still light enough to dye. If you want to see the wig I bought for this then click on the link.

So going from top to bottom, I used Crimson red, pink pizzazz, mystic purple, truely blue, tropical aqua. I tried to make a ombre type look that was still rainbow.

I did a tutorial on how I created this look so click the link below.

 

I hope you enjoyed this little post and I’ll see you in the next one!

£1 Lipsticks?!? Freedom Pro Lipstick Review 

Makeup Reviews

If I said to you £1 lipsticks that are good, what would you say? 

I am always on the hunt for cheap makeup that’s good quality. I feel like sometimes these makeup brands that sell lipsticks for £20-£30 are sometimes not as good as £1-£5 lipsticks, so getting a bargain and looking good is top priority. 

I recently doodled into Superdrug (which I shouldn’t because I buy too much) and I saw 5 lipsticks for £5. Ofcourse I had to buy them, so let’s test them out!

These lipsticks are Freedom Makeup and they are called Pro Lipsticks. They didn’t have much information so I’ll try to describe my feelings on them as well as possible. 

The lipsticks came in a box and they are different shades from dark red to hot pink. 

So these are the shades that come in the box. They seem pretty standard sizes for lipsticks and it didn’t specify whether they were Matt/gloss so let’s test them out!

So this is the shades swatched with the flash on. 


Then these are swatches without the flash on. They seem more Matt when applied but they are very smooth once on, where as compared to the MUA LUXE Matt lip lacquer is very stiff once applied. 

My honest opinion is varying on the shades. I found the darkest shades are the most pigmented and the lightest shades are… a fail. So if you want some good dark lipsticks then bag yourself this!

Milk Teeth Tee

Fashion.

I went down to London to see the concert at the Electric Ballroom and I saw Creeper, Energy, Puppy and Milk Teeth.

I decided to get myself a Milk Teeth t-shirt.

17759711_105499779996439_4407423100074947171_n

Milk Teeth are a punk rock band from Stroud, Gloucestershire.

The band really resinates with me because my dream throughout school was to be a female bassist in a punk/rock/metal band and I was constantly told I couldn’t do it because female bassists don’t exist, which ended up me quitting school.

I seriously reccomend giving them a listen as they have amazing music and great merch.

WORST HAIRDYE ON THE PLANET

Hair Dye Reviews

It’s annoying when your hair dye doesn’t go the colour you want, but dying it and it not working at all, or turning the same colour as a pile of sick is even worse. 

I took absolutely ages to get my hair blonde so I can dye it bright colours. I thought I’d try out the new Pick & Mix dyed from Superdrug, soon has they had an array of bright colours. 


From reading the packaging it sounds like a really amazing product. It’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans, it’s cruelty free and lasts for 3-10 washes so me wanting to change it loads of times sounds a brilliant idea!

The colours I used was red and violet. 

Here’s the red result after one wash. 


What. On. Earth. Happened. The roots are coral and the ends are just a faded mess. I was so disappointed, so I gave it a good scrub till it was all the same colour as the ends and put the purple on. 


My hair turned into vomit. It’s a mix of the colour of Parma violet sweets and the colour of Doc Browns coat in the first back to the future. My hair is ruined. 

I’m so disappointed in these products and it’s such a shame as they seem a brilliant idea just the formula is an absolute flop. 
I hope this helps if your interested in buying these as when I looked up reviews I couldn’t find anything. 

MARILYN HAIR 

Fashion.


So today I tried to turn myself into Marylin Monroe, but Trisha Paytas turn on the look. 

I don’t normally wear fake eyelashes but I did for this look. 


The wig is a lacefront from Zellarosewigs which isn’t on the site currently but keep a look out.

My First Birchbox 

Makeup Reviews

When I first found Birchbox I honestly thought it would be too good to be true. My experiences with subscription boxes have been bad every time so I thought I would give one last chance to Birchbox. 

Birchbox is a subscription service of £10 a month of makeup and beauty goodies and you can personalise your subscription by putting in your likes. 

So to my box..


I was so surprised about the quality of this box. You recieve a patterned box and your goodies in a bag, which really makes the whole experience feel Ike effort was put in.

As you can see from the photo this is my box and now I’ll talk about each item. 


The first item is this Instant Lift Primer. This item retails for a whopping £22! This protect says “You might not be able to get rid of pores entirely, but you can certainly blur the lines! This 99% natural blend of hyaluronic acid and acacia gum tightens and diffuses for smoother, refined, skin”.


This item is the Santorini Vine Shower Gel, retailing at £8. This product says “first up let’s talk about the scent! Fresh and fruity, its the ultimate morning pick-me-up. Bonus? This stuff is packed with nourishing wheat proteins to help moisturise your skin while it cleanses!”


This product is the Batiste 2-in-1 invisible dry shampoo and conditioner retailing at £4.49. This product says ” if you love the way that dry shampoo extends those in between wash days but hate how it dries your hair out, your in luck! This new formula refreshes roots and nourished dry ends for happy hair”. 


This product is an Birchbox exclusive called Marcelle Gentle Makeup Remover that retails at £14.50. This product says “whisk away all traces of makeup easily with this soothing and de-puffing blend of cucumber and green tea. It’s hypoallergenic too!” 


This last product is the Benefit Theyre Real! Double the lip in lusty rose, retailing at £16.50. This product says “Featuring an innovative custom teardrop tip, with a liner at the top and long lasting lipstick at the bottom, this two in one formula delivers vibrant colours for fuller lips”.

OUT OF THIS WORLD HAIR

Wig Reviews

Why is this hair out of this world? Yes it’s called Nebula, but it’s because it’s GORGEOUS. 

Today we’re reviewing the gorgeous wig from Black Candy Fashion Wigs named Nebula. 


The minute I saw this I knew I had to have it. Purple, ombré and curly. Yes yes yes! The length of this wig is perfect for me, and the waves in this wig are really cute, making it look glamorous for everyday looks and going out at night. 


This wig is officially my most favourite hair on the planet and I’m trying to grow my hair into this style.

COLOUR FREEDOM MYSTIC PURPLE

Hair Dye Reviews

I’ll admit it, I can’t stop dying my hair purple. It’s my feel-good colour and I feel so cool with it, especially when I can rock my purple eyebrows.

cropped-16736010_704365293077293_161912282_n

When creating the purple hair colour of awesomeness I use Colour Freedom Mystic Purple. This is my go-to hair dye for purple hair for many reasons; brightness, longevity, shade.

 

It’s normally £6.99 at Superdrug, but sometimes they have sales on which is even better.

So go buy yourself some. Taste the ribena, BE the ribena.
