How To Get Mermaid Hair On Black Hair Without Bleaching / L'oreal Colorista Spray Review

If you have dark/black hair, you would be familiar with the struggle of finding hair dyes that work on your hair without the need to bleach it because everyone wants to have some fun and color in their hair sometimes. Bleaching can be damaging to hair and dark hair tones can lean orange or yellow so that alters the hair dye color too. Thankfully, we dark haired creatures finally have a product that can use to add color without bleaching or damaging our locks!
Introducing the L'oreal Colorista Spray! This is a 1-Day hair color spray that works on all hair colors. I found this in Australia at various drugstores. I got it for about AUD10 in Priceline and AUD7.50 in Coles when it was on discount. Usually, it retails for about AUD15 and in the USA, it goes for USD9.99. There are 43.2g/75ml of product
I got 5 colors - Pastel Blue, Pink, Lavender, Mint and Hot Pink. There are several other colors but these were the only 5 that I found in Australia. I really want the Teal shade though.
The can looks simple but I find it cute that they used the hashtag trend to label their shades. #pastelbluehair #pinkhair #minthair

The back of the can has some claims and instructions. To use it, shake it well and spray 10-15cm away from your hair. If you want to intensify the color, then spray it longer. This claims that it doesn't smudge or budge and that it dries quickly without a chalky feel. All that is true except that it does budge. If you touch it, the product will come off onto your hands even after the product has dried. 
The nozzle is really thin so it's great for targeting areas and doing highlights in your hair.
How to use:
  1. If you use any styling products in your hair, you should put this on first. Style your hair using heat tools if needed. 
  2. Make sure you have a paper towel or tissue in between your hair and shirt. Wearing a white shirt is relatively safe with this product because it doesn't come off or stain white shirts (except the hot pink color). 
  3. Shake the can well and start spraying! 
I wouldn't recommend combing your hair or touching it after putting the hair spray. It is a hair spray so your hair feels a little stiff after the product has dried. The product does come off a little if you touch it. It has a glittery finish so you can see it shimmer in person. 

The first shade I used is Pastel Blue. It doesn't look pastel at all on me so I'm not sure if it will turn pastel on blondes. It is a deep ocean blue on me and I really like it. It's so vibrant and pigmented!

Next to it, I used the Pink shade. I overlapped it with the blue so that created a nice purple in between. The pink turns up really nice and faded though.
I have the Lavender beside the pink but it doesn't look very obvious. It is actually quite similar.
The mint shade looks very green on me and I dig it.
Lastly, we have the hot pink shade. This one is super pigmented and vibrant and looks true to the picture on the can but it is super messy too. This is the only shade that transferred and stained badly even after it had dried. None of the other colors stained or transferred onto my shirt.
The pictures speak a thousand words about the pigmentation and vibrancy on dark hair. IT. IS. AMAZINGGGG. I LOVE IT. If you do not touch the color, it can last you the entire day. I do find it a little faded and gone in some areas after a day's worth of wear because of the wind and having to readjust my hair. This totally didn't feel chalky or drying like hair chalk and it did not dry my hair out. To remove it, simply hop in the shower and wash it off! 

I can't stop obsessing over this and I need more colors!

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them. I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious.  I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas

Arctic Fox Hair Dye Review on Dark Unbleached Hair

I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon .  Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and w

Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss Swatches & Review on Asian Skin (NC20)

Lime Crime came out with their new line of sheer lip glosses recently. I've done a swatch and review video on YouTube but I haven't done a write-up with close up swatch pictures for anyone who wants reference. There are 14 shades in total at the moment and they retail for $18. You get 2.96ml of product in each tube, which honestly is quite little. These lip glosses come in a chubby clear acrylic tube with a pink cap. The tube itself is quite big but don't let it fool you, because 2.96ml/0.1oz of product isn't as much as it looks. The applicator is a really big doe foot which is great for full lips but for me, it's just way too big and the applicator tends to pick up too much product for one application. The lip gloss has a delicious cherry candy scent to it which I love though! These go on sheer because they are meant to be sheer lip glosses. They give a nice tinted look but some colors tend to look streaky up close because of this. They do sink into your l
