I dye my hair, a lot, if you hadn’t noticed by now! Growing up with a mother as a hairdresser, from the age of 15 have always had some sort of colour in my hair. It is kind of like a security blanket, but I don’t feel myself if my hair is brown or blonde, it has to have some splash of colour in it!
I found the Colorista Yellow Washout on an end of line clearance and was skeptical. Some yellows I have had in the past such as Crazy Colour, W7 or Directions didn’t come out very yellow, even on the lightest parts of my hair. I initially got this colour to mix it in with reds and oranges but thought why not try it on its own to create my ombre hair.
I think I paid £3 for this, but normal Colorista products retail for around £7.

Looking at my mascara collection I realised I do need to branch out and try some more brands and mascara typed. Mascara and I do have a slight love hate relationship, as I have very oily lids and under eye area, meaning 90% of the time I sport the panda look without intention of playing fancy dress.
I have been looking at mascara primers and wanted to start with those to use up mascara that were lacking va-va-boo, so purchased the newest L’oreal Paradise Lash Primer.
These are it’s claims:
2 in 1 primer, that boosts mascara volume and length and cares for lashes.
Lashes have the appearance of being soft and feather like, and be stronger and more conditioned.
Ingredients to note:
Jojoba oil to nourish.
Panthenol to encourage lashes to grow.
Rose canina oil for vitamin A and E to nourish, strengthen and smooth texture.
Time used: 3 months
Other things to note:
Cruelty free: No
Vegan: No, contains beeswax

I was a bit skeptical about trying a new mascara but I did need a new every day mascara, as personally my usual mascara is a little too full volume for every day wear. I decided to try the new L’oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Violet for a change, and I got it at the introductory price of £5.99.
“Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara creates bold volume
with L’Oreal Paris’ first 360° flexible cone shaped brush that amplifies upper lashes and reveals lower lashes.”
With it’s interesting brush shape and advertisement I grabbed one to try.
Price: £5.99 (£8.99 RRP)
