Weekend Makeover

This weekend brought lots of change. I gave myself somewhat of a makeover, by leaving my lighter locks behind and joining the dark side. I’ll share with you guys everything I used in the makeover below:

For my hair I used Revlon’s ColorSilk Dark Brown Color ($5). I picked it, because it was amonia free. The less harmful chemicals added to the hair, the better.

Makeup: CoverGirl’s Lash Blast Mascara in Black ($7.24), Bare Escentual’s Warmth ($18) for face, mark Blush in Chica ($7), and Mac Lipstick in Gaga ($14).

Touch Up Your Roots Without the Mess

Have you ever wished you could touch-up your roots without the loss of time and the mess? Touch-ups are time consuming and whether you do them at home or the salon, you’ll need to set a good amount of time for it aside. Sometimes we don’t have all that time. There are products you can actually use to hide those nasty roots and give you a little extra time before you’re scheduling your next hair appointment. MimicColor is a powdery color you apply with a brush or fingertips. This works by blending in with the rest of your color and it won’t smudge off. The before and after pictures look convincing, but I’m kind of skeptical on how great a powder will cover up roots. They come in four different shades and are supposed to blend even if it isn’t an exact match to your color. This is one of those products I’d have to try and see to believe.

If you’re not really buying the powder touch up try OSCAR BLANDI’s Pronto Colore Root Touch-Up & Highlighting Pen. It looks more like a lip-gloss than anything else. Although this comes in light liquid form, it contains no peroxide or ammonia. Both products wash out the next time you shampoo. If there’s one thing I’m careful about its skin and hair. Anything that will give a couple more days before I need a touch-up (without the harmful chemicals) is worth the try.
