Review on Fresh Light Sugar Ash Foam Hairdye

March 21, 2011 § 4 Comments

Hello everyone, 
As promised, I will do a review on the Fresh Light Sugar Ash Foam Hairdye.
Below is my hair before the colouring. I recently took out my extension and cut it short again. You can see the roots are black and the bottom part has a little bit of black showing. So I thought, what a perfect time to try out the new hair dye kit I bought. 
So before using this foam hairdye from fresh light, I actually went on to bleach my hair little bit with the Gatsby bleaching kit. Because I wanted the colour to show more, I decided that I needed lighter base on my hair. 
The picture below shows the post-application of the foam formula. 
These pictures show the result. I am not too satisfied with the result. Because although I’ve bleached my hair to a dark blonde hair, the result is still darker than I thought. However, what I like about this is my hair is very ashy in real life especially under the sun. 
With artificial fluorescent lighting
with regular white lightbulb
With a bit of sunlight
After thought: THIS HAIR DYE DRIPS like crazzzzzzy~ I had to shorten the process to 15 minutes because it was dripping all over my towel and my neck! OMGOSH… Although the colour choices are nice (cuz of my love for ashy hair), I would definitely not use this again. I actually found the cream formula much better, at least it doesn’t drip like this one. BUT I do have to state the fact that cuz my hair is short, it actually promotes the dripping to happen. Maybe if you have long hair and then wrap it with plastic wrap, it won’t drip as much. But overall, I would only give it a 2/5 for the crazy dripping and the inconsistent result to the hair colour chart shown on its packaging / official website.

Korean idol group SECRET’s Ji Eun’s new hair

March 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

Honestly, I am digging this hair colour: Turquoise blue with purple highlights. But can I pull off a hair colour like this? Probably, however, thats not the major point. The thing is, I am no celebrity and if I carry such hair when I go out, I will for sure grab a lot of unwanted attention. It would be annoying to have all eyes on me and I don’t like that honestly. I guess thats the only fun part of being a celebrity because you can change your hair to any colour you want and not worrying about looking like a freak. 
So instead of going blue, I bought a hairdye to go GREY… but I won’t be using it until I take out my extensions next month. By then, I will post a review on the results =D

Fall 2011 ICE QUEEN by Alexander McQueen

March 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

Sarah Burton, who designed these breathe-taking dresses, claimed she was thinking of “strong, noble and romantically powerful.” 
Figured that Alexander McQueen was a genius for the fashion industry, Sarah Burton has did an excellent job in taking over Alexander’s line. They share the very similar style: edgy and powerful. These dresses are so nice that I want to owe every single one of them. I could possibly wear one of these for my future wedding (in which I do not know when). But Alexander McQueen collections never disappoints.

Big Bang X Uniqlo

March 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Yes, I could have been soo outdated with this post (but hey, I don’t go to uniqlo that often). Anyways, I was surfing around in uniqlo on a chillaxing friday afternoon. Finally no classes TONIGHT! Then, I spotted some tees with “BIGBANG SHOW” on it. I thought they have something to do with the real big bang theory. But as I walked closer, there was a picture of bigbang hanging beside the rows of tees! WOOHOO~ I then did a little dance and screamed a little. LOL~ I guess I got too carried away for a sec coz of the sudden appearance of BigBang. I have recently became very fond of Daesung and JiYong. (SMell! let’s smell!) But I was dragged away after because I was late for dinner reservation. SO this is the little surprise I got today. 
When I went today, there was only 5 tee styles left, and only the grey hoodie is left. The black ones are gone already. I should have got one at least, but they are for men… ROAR~ 

POTD1 – Purchase of the day 1

March 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

Alright. So I will start my first POTD (not photo of the day but instead purchase of the day). If I buy more than two beauty items, I will do one POTD. But I purchase less than two items, I will gather a bunch of stuff before doing one. 
SO! today, I made a trip to fresh, kiehl’s and NARS. Before heading to the stores, I already had in mind what I need to get. Recently, the impulse shopping genes have left me. I usually make a purchase after many many days or even weeks of consideration unless it’s an essential item which I need to get. Below shows the purchase I’ve made today =D 
With the face cleanser and the moisturizer, I can only give a review probably after a few or even a month of usage. Since my skin might give a reaction to the new products, so it’s better for me to give a review after some time so my opinions can be unbiased. 
The lip colour I chose is 3506 VERSUVIO which is a matte classic red. The reason why I chose a matte formula is my love for matte colours. There is no specific reason why. I like matte because of its low profile outlook, but yes, I am kind of contradicting myself here because this is a very bold red. But I’ve always wanted to get a red lipstick but I didn’t want to make it too out-spoken. So I went for matte ones.
The above pictures have been photoshopped so the colours are true to the original.

So yesterday I was playing with the face makeover. Today, I am doing the hair makeover!!! Before trying the makeover tool at taaz, it’s best to have ur bangs pull back and long hair put up. =D
The following are the ones I think I look better in. (Sorry for the really weird under eye area.. I can’t get the concealer tool to look less obvious)

The first and last one are computered generated looks. The first one is called Grunge Rock while the last one is called the Tribal Warrior (which in my opinion is kind of similar to Avatar).
