Welcome to Baby Reviews, wherein I review (succintly) beauty products I’ve tried in the last month or so. Helpful, right? As always, helpful’s what I aim for.
Pravana Pure Light Brightening Shampoo (above) - Since I have a keratin blowout, I was instructed to stay far, far away from sulfates. This makes finding a purple shampoo to tone my blonde difficult, but I found Pravana thanks to Google and ordered it via Amazon. It’s runny. Really runny. And it stains your hair purple in the shower, but it washes out. And it tones like a dream. My hair is champagne platinum, not buttercup yellow.
Essie Bahama Mama polish - Pretty plum that isn’t too dark. Needs about three coats to apply evenly.
China Glaze In the Limelight polish - Neon green, so it dries matte. I needed about four coats for it to look opaque; better as an accent color, I think.
Bumble & Bumble White Hair Powder - Comes in a cutie-pie little travel spray size, but isn’t worth the money. (It’s $19 for the teeny size, $34 for the big one.) Gives nice texture and so-so coverage, but it sheds like snowfall … or dandruff. “Psssst!” or baby powder work just as well.
MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Perpetual Flame - Cool texture, easy application, long-lasting raspberry red color.
Dior Addict Lipstick in 578 Diorkiss - This is the color Kate Moss is wearing in the commercials. I probably like it so much because I like the tube, which is high tech and holographic. The pink lipstick inside is pretty too, but yeah, not $30 pretty.
Lolita Lempicka Fleur de Corail - Beachy with a side of laundry detergent. (Appealing to you? I’ll sell.)
