Products I’ve Used Up: Empties #1

Hey ladies! How are you all?

Wanna go through my trash with me? I love empties videos! How about you?

I filmed a couple more videos this week too, but am headed off to MA to help my best friend move home on Saturday morning, and don’t know when we’ll be back. (We’re driving from MA to CA.)

Tomorrow I have to be in a meeting most of the day, and then pack, but if I have time I will film a What’s in my carry on? video too! Would you like to see that?

Muah! hugs & kisses,

How To Dye Your Hair At Home

Affiliate Links Used

Summer is almost here and I am so ready for it! I love dying my hair, but have been on a super long hair detox so my hair would recover from too many dyes. I lasted for almost 3 years without dying my hair, and I am so ready for a change.  Not only have I been on a no dye detox, but I’ve also been trying to use better products for styling, and use much less heat than I used to.

L'Oreal Paris Feria Hair Color - Intense Medium Auburn (R57)Anyways, I’m getting off topic.. I’m dying my hair red again! But this time, I’m going super red! Or at least it looks super red in the box. I used the L’Oreal Paris Feria Hair Color in Intense Medium Auburn (R57) this time, and to be honest I’m not sure that I like it.

The front of the box reads  “Power Reds High Intensity Shimmering Color.” And by Shimmering, they mean glitter. I have glitter on my scalp. I have glitter all over my body. I have a shimmering pillow case and towel. But my hair isn’t any more shiny than before. And it did not come out as red as I thought it would, it’s more of a purpley red than a true red. (Which isn’t a problem for me because I love that color, but what if I expected a true red out of this?)

Muah! Love you ladies! Are you thinking of dying your hair soon? Send me pics! @LipstickDupe on twitter, or here, or on youtube!
