MY HAIR is RED now and a LOTD inspired by my dress

Well, my hair is kinda red. If you have been following me on twitter, you know that last week I tried (and failed miserably) at dying the bottom half of my hair red. My hair is naturally very dark and I dye it black due to some grays that I get.

So last week when I bleached my hair first, I let the bleach sit for an hour and it did NOTHING! So this week, when I bleached my hair, I put strands of my hair in foil and let it sit for an hour again. It worked better this time, BUT not perfectly. Some strands really lightened up and others never seemed like there was bleach on them at all!! I have no idea how or why that happened, but it is ok..I actually like it!

OH well..I am not a hair dresser, it is not perfection
The red in my hair is Manic Panic Vampire Red and I bought all my hair supplies and dye at Sally's Beauty Supply Store. It is a semi permanent dye and I let it sit in my hair for about 4 hours to get this color.

Here it is!

Not bad right! Not perfect either. I REALLY love this color RED, it is what I always wanted. It is not bright in your face, it is pretty subtle and dark deep red.

Here is my dress that inspired my look. It is from Express

Dear MAC,

When I entered into the makeup world 2 years ago, all I dreamed of was saving up enough money to buy your coveted eye shadows. I wanted every single color, I wanted to own the whole collection. For $14.50 of a 1.5 gram of your claimed "Highly pigmented shadows, that apply evenly and blend easily", I was very excited to dive into your world. As I started to explore your world, I was smitten with your products, but soon I started to become an individual in the makeup world and started to try other brands that are not so highly bragged about, because honestly, all your hype is not always worth it. Not all your products are the bees knees, so to speak. On my adventure outside of your world, I came across this AMAZING brand INGLOT. While, you, MAC charge $11 for a 1.5g individual pan (not in the pot), INGLOT charges $4.50 for a 2.7g pan of eyeshadow. This INGLOT brand actually has a DISCOUNT system..YES..say it with me MAC..DISCOUNT SYSTEM.

Buy one shadow from their freedom system and it will cost you $7
Buy three shadows from their freedom system and each shade will cost you $5
Buy ten or more shadows from their freedom system and each shade will cost you $4.50

and can you believe that you can buy a 2, 3, 5, 10, or 20 pan magnetic palettes too...WOW..choices..

AMAZING PRICES! and guess what! INGLOTS MATTES ARE REAL MATTES! Smooth, pigmented and easy to work, unlike yours...

INGLOT actually has a few different finishes for their shadows

Matte: Smooth, buttery and very pigmented. These shadows have no sparkle or sheen to them at all

Pearl: Slightly shimmery frost finish

DS: Means Double Sparkle, these are satin based shades with very fine glitter. They have more of a matte base, with a very fine glitter sheen. These are amazing looking

AMC and AMC shine: This is Inglot's own formula which stands for "advanced makeup component". This collection is perspiration resistant, contains vitamin E, and is talc-free. Most of the AMC shadows I own lean more towards the matte side of things or with a slight sheen or metallic finish

Also did you know that the INGLOT Company was established over 25 years ago by Wojtek Inglot, a young chemist working at that time in R and D department in pharmaceutical company.
His principal objective was to produce high quality products at fair and reasonable prices, using only the best possible ingredients and raw materials from the most reputable suppliers. INGLOT also does not test on animals.

INGLOT also sells a lot of other amazing products that I bought and can not wait to try an tell you about.

So MAC while I do not hate or dislike you. I have moved on from you. I still get excited about some of your collections and I still consider you the "go-to" brand in the makeup world, but you are no longer my staple, HG makeup company. Thank you for all you have done for me and I will continue to be your customer, but just not as frequently.

You can find out more about INGLOT, where there stores are located and you can purchase their makeup online at INGLOTCOSMETICS.COM. I HIGHLY recommend it.

With all my heart,

NOW on to the SWATCHES!!! :D


Here are my palettes and I stored 16 shadows in a Z-palette:

And how I label them with my label maker

AHH-MAZING! PHEW! I also bought some lipsticks, pigments, blush, foundation and an eyeliner. Those swatches are coming soon. I am also working on a MAC Vs INGLOT post as well :D

Did I turn you into an INGLOT lover? Do you want some now? :P

I cut my sister's hair..OMG..YIKES!

YUP! My sister asked me to trim her hair even though I have NEVER cut hair before, pretty bold of her huh? She said it was a recession and she had to cut back on is a trip.

Anyways, I was up for the challenge and I watched a TON of youtube tutorials and decided that this one from Rosebud143 was the best one at explaining how to do it

In less than 6 minutes, she explained it perfectly! So I ran out and got some supplies from Sally's Beauty Supplies.

- A thinning razor comb
- Hair cutting scissors
- Rat tail comb
- Elastics
- Clips

I told my sister to wash her hair and to come into my room when she was ready. I was sooooooooooooooooooooo SUPER NERVOUS to make the first cut. I think I combed her hair for like 10 min till my sister finally said "JUST DO IT ALREADY!" I did! Once the first cut once made, I was on a roll. My sister has a lot of hair, so the cut took me about an hour.

I basically cut the hair in sections, clipping up the pieces to separate them from the hair I was cutting and the hair I was about to cut and I tied back the pieces I already cut in the elastics.

I also cut the hair on an angle like the youtube video instructed. She already had layers, so it was easy to follow her hair. I cut about a half an inch off or so of her hair.

Check out all the hair afterwards...

 On the floor
 On her pants
In the chair

And the final results

 The back
and the sides

NOT BAD! and she liked it too!! She said the only way she would allow me to post this on my blog is if I did a good job and if I didn't show her face. At the end of the cut, she gave me permission to post it on my blog. I told her I will do it again next time she wants her hair trimmed.

Her tip to me was: "Don't trust any anyone and never accept wooden nickels" LMFAO..thanks

What do you think of my first hair cut? Would you ever cut your own hair or someone else's even if you never did it before?
