New Hair!

I know, I know.  You guys are all like, “It’s always new hair with you!”   But I’m having fun with an pastel orange at the moment.   I started out at a level 5 bright copper red.  Something like this:

1421293_10202431367444820_353572444_o

 

Then we bleached it twice and toned it with a level 7 orange red and 5 vol.

Six weeks later we touched up my roots and ran the bleach through the ends one more time.  This time we toned it with 2 parts yellow Rush Deep Color Direct, 1 part Manic Panic Pillarbox Red and a dollop of Manic Panic Cotton Candy Pink.   We processed it for 1/2 hour with no heat.   I called this phase of the color Solar Flare.   lol

And after one washing.  I love this pastel phase…..so springy and fun!

Same color-two different looks from the lighting.

This is the first time that I’ve used the new Rusk veggie colors and I have to say I’m pretty impressed.   It didn’t bleed onto my pillowcases or towels at all.

 

Virus Insanity True Blood Collection Swatches

Hotties!   Today I bring to you a lovely collection of swatches from the Virus Insanity collection inspired by True Blood.   Can I just tell you…..I am *in love* with this collection.

These were swatched over Detrivore primer and photographed with no flash under a bright light.

First we have Alcide, Vampire Bill (well, technically it’s just BILL but come on…..I just can’t NOT say VAMPIRE BILL) and Eric.   These are all gorgeous but my favorite is Alcide.  Although I don’t mind have Eric on my face, either.   *wink, nudge*

The next set is Fangtasia, Lafayette and Sookie.    Fangtasia…..FANGTASIA!!  Yes, I screamed it.  It’s because it’s my newest obsession and my favorite shadow hands down right now.  It’s a gorgeous and wearable red and red eyeshadow can be tricky.  If it’s not done right then you just look like you have cholera. Fangtasia is a great, warm red with golden flash and red glitter.

I totally forgot to include Merlotte’s in the original swatching so here it is all by itself:

Combinations that I’m looking forward to trying are Fangtasia/Vampire Bill (weird but it might just look amazeballs!), Sookie/Eric and Lafayette/Eric.

 

 


Darling Girl Swatch Post

Hello hotties!

I was lucky enough to get my Darling GIrl package this week so I put together a swatch post for you.   The swatches aren’t from  any one collection so I’ve put them in alphabetical order just for shits and giggles.

These were all swatched over Detrivore primer and photographed inside under a bright light with no flash.

First up are Beach Blanket Bingo, Black Hole Sun, Borrowed Underpants and Bubbles.   I had a hard time with Beach Blanket Bingo as it’s a matte and didn’t want to apply evenly over the primer.   My favorite of this bunch is Black Hole Sun.

Now we’ve got Dirty Limerick, Emagherd!, Fireworks and Heatwave.   How excited am I to try Fireworks and Dirty Limerick together?   Very excited.

Now we have Paper Planes, Red Butler and Sakura Season (free GWP).   Paper Planes and Red Butler were instant favorites for me.  Red Butler is a gorgeous brow bone highlighter.

And last we have Sexxy Girlfriend!, Tank Taupe, and Cheeks Like Roses blush.   Tank Taupe was hard to work with over the primer as it’s a matte.   Cheeks Like Roses is my new instant favorite blush!

So those are the swatches!  Look for some FOTD posts coming up soon featuring these colors!

 

 

Hottie’s Hot Pick Of The Week-Domestic Goddess Wax Tart

Hello hotties!   Sorry it’s been so long since my last Hot Pick but my muggle job has been keeping me quite busy these days.

Domestic Goddess Exclusive Wax Tart

Domestic Goddess Exclusive Wax Tart

Today I have for you my most favorite of home fragrances, The Rhinestone Housewife’s  exclusive Domestic Goddess  home fragrance wax tart.   Wax tarts are an amazing invention and so much safer than burning candles and I’ve been a happy convert for a couple of years now.   Domestic Goddess is described as:

Who says cleaning can’t be fun? The scent of a broken Pledge sprayer and the frozen raspberry margarita to take away the pain.

Each tart is approximately 2.5 ounces, and is in a plastic clamshell. Each tart can be broken into 6 tartlettes, each of which has a minimum throw of 12 hours.

Wondering what the heck these wax tart things are?  Check out Hottie’s blog post here.   Wanting to peruse the other exclusive Rhinestone Housewife home fragrances?  Then click here and you can also some other general catalog and limited edition scents here!

Hello hotties!  It’s been so long since I’ve brought you a FOTD post that I thought you were due one.  Also, I have new hair!   We bleached it out twice to a golden apricot color and then toned it with 7OR and 5 vol.  I love it!
