a "sneak-peek" fotd (and a mini hair-coloring rant!)

Hi guys! I just wanted to pop in with a quick FOTD featuring some new products I really wanted to try! You'll be seeing more of them soon in some upcoming posts, but for now, here's the look I did:

FACE: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua (B10), Dior Aurora bronzer, Dior Amber Diamond

EYES: NARS Dogon e/s duo, MAC Sand & Sun e/s, LORAC Front of the Line PRO liner, Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Lucky, Sephora Jumbo Liner pencil in 05 Beige, MAC Lingering brow pencil, Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara, Clinique Bottom Lash mascara

LIPS: YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in 02 Dewy Papaya

I did want to say really quickly before I go, I used Garnier hair color for the first time ever this past week, and so far, I'm not super impressed.  I used the Nutrisse one I showed in my last post, but it came out streaky, so I redid it a few days later with a similar shade from the HerbaShine range. I like how quickly it works, the large size of the gloves, the intensity of the color, and the conditioner it came with.  HOWEVER, this stuff is a NIGHTMARE to rinse out.  I scrubbed and scrubbed for about TEN MINUTES in the shower and still color was running down the drain. And once I was out, if I touched a tissue to my hair, you could see color on it. Both the Nutrisse and HerbaShine were like this. I think I'll be going back to L'Oreal next time. : / Anyone else have this problem with Garner hair-color? Or is there a brand you love that you think I should try? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

I feel a haul post coming soon... >_< Probably skipping April Favorites, because aside from new loves Chanel Evasion and MAC Mischievious Mint and the Clinique Moisture Surge TM, I was using mostly the same ol', same ol' last month!

Thanks for reading!

  1. How are you liking the new RV Sheers? Is the formula decent? I'm staying loyal to my YSL SA and waiting for her to get them in, rather than succumbing to the Sephora sirens calling me :P xxx

  2. Wow what a transformation! Loving th hair colour, i think it really brings out your eyes xx :o)

  3. Oh no! I want NARS Dogon, Dior Aurora, AND the YSL sheer candy lipsticks! Your FOTD looks so good I think I just might have to get them all!

    ♥ Jessica

  4. You look gorgeous, as always! If I had your skin tone I would so rock the Dior Aurora, unfortunately (or maybe fortunately lol) I linger around NC37 in the summer time and this would barely show up on me. But it looks phenom. on you!

  5. your skin always looks so flawless & radiant in your pictures! how is the Chanel foundation in terms of coverage?? im on the search for a new summer found. I heard this withstands humidity pretty well!

  6. I like that blush you're wearing. It looks good on you!

  7. SO cute!!

    EEEK I keep seeing Dior Amber Diamond everywhere now and it's giving me that extra push - I certainly do not need- to go out and get it!


  8. Box hair colors are bad news, they're not customized to hair like a the dye a hairdresser would mix up. Have a look at Sally Beauty and the Killer Strands website about using professional hair colors.

  9. got the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy things (lipsticks? I don't know). I love your eye makeup too! Oh, and I just got Aurora :D

  10. You,my dear,are stunning.
