The Innate Life Natural Hair Products

A few weeks back I received a package from The Innate Life, a Canadian brand of all natural & organic hair care. I used to be super big on natural hair care and exclusively use natural products in my hair, as you may remember if you’ve been following me for a while. A while ago I relaxed a bit and started using conventional products in my hair as well, but natural and organic products still have a special place in my heart and I’ll always value them over non-natural products. So needless to say, I was really excited to give these three products a try. After the first use, I was already blown away. This stuff does amazing things to my hair, so I really want to share it with you, in case you need some serious hair repairing done and are looking for a new product.

l’Oréal Colorista Spray Review

A few weeks back I tried the l’Oréal Colorista Washout in #DirtyPink. Despite the warning on the back, I was stubborn, and wanted to see whether it would turn my dark hair pink at all. It didn’t. However, there’s still hope for us dark-haired ladies that want coloured hair without bleaching first. The Colorista range also contains a few coloured sprays, that offer one day of brightly coloured hair on any base colour. They wash out after one wash so they’re super temporary. I’m going to give them a go today, and let you know what I think!

Trying Pink Colorista Washout On Dark Hair

Last week, l’Oréal invited me to the Dutch launch of their new Colorista range: a set of hair dyes, temporary hair dyes, and coloured hair sprays to easily give hair a fun colour at home. I love this concept and I think they’re right on time with launching this: fun, unnatural hair colours are very fashionable at the moment! I’m happy to see them so easily accessible in drugstores.

They gave me a few items from the Colorista range to try out, among which was this Colorista Washout temporary hair dye in the colour Dirty Pink. I was specifically given a goodie bag for dark hair so even though the packaging says this colour is meant for blondes, I was curious to see whether it would maybe work on my dark hair, even just a little. I decided to hold off trying the bright turquoise dye they also gave me a little longer and start by giving the more subtle Dirty Pink a try. Not just to see how it would show up on my hair, but also to try the dying process with a colour that can’t go horribly wrong. Alright, let’s go!

MUA Undress Me Too Palette

A few days ago I was buying some hair pins at my local drug store, when I ran into a display with MUA eyeshadow palettes on sale. They instantly caught my eye and as I’d never tried anything from Makeup Academy before, I decided to pick one up and try it out. I chose a white palette called MUA Undress Me Too. Let’s see what I think of it!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Since I became interested in makeup, I’ve seen a multitude of foundation application techniques come and go. The flat foundation brush, the stippling brush, airbrushing, dense flat-top brushes, and lastly the egg-shaped sponge. We’re branching out to other odd foundation application tools (sillicone in all shapes and sizes) but so far, the egg-shaped sponge is holding its own really well. I know I’m certainly still hooked on mine! I’ve been using the Ebelin make-up sponge, which is a very close Beauty Blender dupe, for a year with pleasure. I bought a pair of Ebelin sponges for my good friend a while back, and as we started talking about how it compared to other brands, I mentioned I’d never used the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge before. It’s a very popular sponge and she wanted me to try it out, so she gifted me one to test. Let’s see what I think of it!
