Not So Hairy Stuff

I think most of you already know that I changed my hairstyle. I used to sport my hair au naturel, without any colours or perms or what have you. I still have not coloured my hair, but I did get a perm, a digital perm. Digital perm has been around for at least a decade, and since it’s not the first time I do this, I felt comfortable. Now, they have new stuff called Korean set perm, you know, riding on the Hallyu wave and all that. Anyhoo… If you followed me on Instagram, you would’ve seen me sitting in the salon with a really hot cooker on my head. If I used it to cover my face, I’d look like R2D2 :-P

FOTD: Bobbi Brown Amnesia Rose Palette

OK, I finally got some photos taken – of a look using the purples of the Bobbi Brown Amnesia Rose Palette. It was after work, and I was going to get myself cleaned up, then I thought, well, maybe I should slap on more makeup, take some photos, THEN shower. Yup, I always have great ideas. LOL! Anyway, Ultra Violet turned out to be more pink than purple on my eyes, and Iron doesn’t show up much paired with it either. Mulberry is a good contrast colour because it is the most pigmented. So, the bold colours I see on the pans turned out to be soft, sheer-ish wearable colours on the lids, as predicted :-) I’ve read some mixed reviews about this palette, and let’s be real. Just like anything in life, really, some will like it, some will not.

Review: Bobbi Brown x L’Wren Scott Amnesia Rose Palette

Bobbi Brown teamed up with L’Wren Scott for a collaboration which is the Amnesia Rose Collection. Inspired by the amnesia rose grown by L’Wren at her Loire Valley chateau, the limited edition Amnesia Rose Collection was unveiled at L’Wren’s Spring 2014 Fashion Show during London Fashion Week. Now, it is available to us. I have with me the Amnesia Rose palette, and I love the packaging.

Review: REN Radiance Perfection Serum

I haven’t tried anything from REN before. REN is a brand that touts to use only clean ingredients, so the products don’t have parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, petrolatum, synthetic fragrances, colours, glycols or silicones (among other things). I got the products at Cult Beauty because there was a drool worth goody bag I wanted, and of course, I wanted to try something from REN. I bought the Radiance Perfection Serum 30ml and another serum which I’ll reveal in due time (haven’t tested it yet). So I thought I’d shed light on this radiance boosting serum.
