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. 


Rimmel London Provocalips Review

Makeup Reviews

Hello there everyone! Today I am going to be reviewing the Rimmel London Provocalips Lip Colours. I will be reviewing 3 shades, including shades; Not Guilty (Dark Red), Skinny Dipping (Nude Brown), and Dare To Pink (Baby Pink).

These lip colours are generally £6.99 and this lip colour is available in 11 Shades.


The lip colour comes with 2 Parts. Part 1 is an ‘Intense Colour’, and part 2 is a ‘Lock and Shine’ which is a clear cover.

To use these lip colours there are 2 steps. Step 1 is to colour your lips, let them dry for 1 minute, then apply Step 2 which is to lock and give shine.

A short description for these colours are;

‘Provocalips delivers hi-impact 16HR endless colour with a delectably glossy finish. It’s kiss-proof, food-proof and transfer-proof, only coming off when you want it to. An exclusive 2 step product so incredibly lightweight and flexible and adapts to the movement of your lips. 1 intense colour 2 lock and shine’. –Boots.



When swatching these colours on my hand without the lock and shine (Left to right, Skinny Dipping, Dare to pink, Not Guilty), the pigment of these colours are beautiful. There incredibly glossy and look like they have a glitter type finish to them which I love.


This shade above is Skinny Dipping with the Lock and Shine applied on top of the colour. I feel like it’s a lovely colour but when applying the lock and shine it smudges the colour on the lips (hense the blotchiness) and makes the lipstick feel sticky and tacky.


This shade above is Dare To Pink with the Lock and Shine applied on top of the colour. I feel like this is the best shade out of the 3 I tested and when applying the lock and Shine gave it a cute glossy effect.


The shade above is Not Guilty with the Lock and Shine applied on top of the colour. This colour was the worst out of the 3 when applying the lock and shine as you can see in the above picture it made all the lipstick uneven and smudgy looking. Using this lip colour without the lock and shine is much better and gives a great lipstick.

For the longevity of the lipsticks, I feel they last ages IF you don’t eat or drink with the lipstick. The lipstick actually stays on better when not using the lock and shine on the lipstick.

Giving these lipsticks a rating out of 5, I’d rate it 2.5 out of 5 as they have great colours but not very good longevity.

Thanks for reading!

Colour Freedom Hair Dye ***REVIEW***

Hair Dye Reviews

Hey everyone. Today I’m going to be reviewing ‘Colour Freedom Hair Dye’.

Now the colour I used was Poppy Red and it cost me £8.99 which is extremely pricey! The bottle is 150ml which according to their packet is ‘extra large’ when in reality it doesn’t feel like a lot when applying it to my hair and I only put it in the bottom of my hair.

I applied this dye over a dull orange/blonde mix of hair and it didn’t dye my hair red at all, it’s just gone an extremely bright orange colour. I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt how it turned my blonde bits orange, but it’s still not red! It has a good conditioning effect but my hair feels very dry at the ends, bearing in mind my hair isn’t dead because they are brand new extensions!

The link below is the application of the dye and the result;

Overall I think this dye wasn’t worth the money at all. Compared to the colour it said and the fact you can pasteurize this colour it must turn a pretty pale colour if the effect on hair with the normal dye is the bear minimum. Defiantly going to stick with Directions hair dye next time.
