Silk finish Lipstick 536A Dark wine & 354B Mink brown

Our lipstick formula contains all the same things as the other guys: rich color, vitamins A & E, aloe vera, and really feels like putting silk on your lips. If you’re already thinking “That is a crazy bargain,” we’ve now added macadamia nut oil that contains antioxidants to hydrate your lips for a smooth, supple pout. Are we just crazy? Have we gone too far? Or do you deserve it? We definitely think so! One try, and we guarantee you will declare this your best lipstick brand of life.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick “PSYCHO”

This shade is in a comfort matte. When looking at this shade I thought I was going to be more on the red side. It’s a bit deceiving when the lipsticks are in tiny samples. Anyways I was surprised with how pink/violet it actually looks. (So rose? haha) As I was applying I noticed some glitter and thought “Oh shoot how did I get glitter in there?” lol NOPE it’s part of the lipstick!! It has these iridescent blue micro sparkles. Super pretty but might be a hard to see in the photo sorry.

I added this pretty gold strip. It seems to be what’s trending right now, so I thought I would give a go! 😀 Ya not going to lie I’m feeling this!!!And of course with a name like Psycho you gotta go dark…20170424_222836 (3)20170424_222944 (3)To get this gold all I did was applied my mascara and with the second coat while it was still wet, I took some eyeshadow and packed it on the tips of my lashes.

20170424_223855 (2)With my hair I decided to do a faux A-line. Super easy to do if you have some layers to work with. You just pin-up your long layers underneath your short ones, BOOM! instant short hair and no commitment. LOL I took these photos after taking photos hahaha but ended up really liking them. So here’s some with my hair up. Showing off this awesome tone in my hair!20170424_224353 (2)20170424_223616 (2)

Just to show off my shirt! lol I’ve had this shirt for a while and to be honest I can’t remember where I got it. Sorry

Clairol Professional iThrive Keratin Rescue Treatment

Refreshing Susie Q’s DO!!

It can time to refresh my girlfriends hair again. Witch meant BLEACH! Muahaha Bleach really isn’t all that scary as long as you respect the product (follow the directions) you’ll be ok 😀 If it’s your first time using bleach or putting bleach on someone else’s hair, always start with a “test strand” to see how the hair will react. This information should also be with your bleach. I don’t recommend box bleach….. ever! Go to your local Beauty Supply Store!!!! Trust me & the cost is no different.

OK Moving on! This is Susie and she uses a hair masque about 2x a week. Her hair is really soft! So when working with her hair we want to keep the integrity of it. That’s always my goal when working with anyone’s hair. Instead of pushing the hair, Because I want instant result. Patience people! lol
(REMEMBER I am not a professional!) This is just how I do things.

I told Susie pick up some hair masque as well so we had something nice to hydrate her hair after bleaching. I was all out of good stuff. So she brings Clairol professional iThrive Keratin Rescue Treatment here are the stats.

Formulated with IntenseCURE™, Clairol Professional iThrive™ Keratin Rescue Treatment instantly repairs damage.

  • Revives dry, damaged hair
  • Creates a layer of protection around each hair strand
  • Color-safeIMG_8972

Here’s Susie’s beforeIMG_8939 (2)Products used where:

*ion color brilliance powder lightner with a Conditioning , Dust-free formula for on and off the scalp application. With Gardenia+Coconut

*ion Sensitive Scalp 30 volume creme developer

*Clairol Shimmer Lights Conditioning Shampoo for Blonde & Silver

*Any cheap conditioner to mix with the purple shampoo

*Wella T18 Lightest Ash Blonde Color Charm Toner

*Clairol iThive Keratin Rescue

(Linked products to Sally’s Beauty Supply where they were purchased)

Susie got a light trim & highlights this time around.

After rinsing the bleach out I could tell Susie’s hair was THIRSTY! But that’s pretty normal with bleach. I should have gotten a photo but completely forgot. I then used my mixture of purple shampoo & conditioner to help tone & moisturize her hair.  We then went on to tone her hair with the wella T18. I let her hair sit & tone for about 30 min. We then proceeded to giving her hair life again by using Clairol iThrive Keratin Rescue Treatment!

Here’s Susie’s hair afterIMG_8954 (2)

Oh man Clairol iThrive keratin Rescue is AWEmazing!!! Her hair came back to life in just 5MIN! That’s it 5 whole min. Normally I don’t like to dry hair after bleaching it but… ya know we couldn’t wait!!! Susie’s hair was more alive leaving my house then when it arrived. I highly recommend Clairol iThrive Keratin Rescue Treatment. Plus it’s super affordble & wont break the bank!! This is just one product in this line of Clairol Professional Keratin Rescue. Here’s some info:

KERATIN RESCUE

The 3-step system includes a shampoo to instantly repair damage, a conditioner for lasting nourishment and a rich, conditioning treatment for damaged hair. To smooth split ends, try Split End Repair as the finishing step. Here’s a link (click here) for more info.
