TIGI Decadent Lipstick in Splendor: The Perfect Fall Shade

When the seasons start to change, I always find myself in a bit of a makeup rut – specifically when it comes to lip color. While it’s no secret that I’m a die-hard red lipstick fanatic, I like to go with something a bit lighter for early fall.

I’m not usually one for shimmery lipsticks, but Tigi’s Decadent Lipstick in Splendor totally threw me for a loop.  An earthy, reddish-gold hue, it’s slightly darker than my normal color choice… but I am totally loving it.  Decadent, indeed!

For a shade with significant shimmer, the color applied smoothly and lasted through a grande cup of coffee. As always, I still recommend a thorough lip exfoliation prior to application – all shimmery shades tend to get a bit clumpy towards the end of the day, and this one is no exception.   Read more

A Touch of Red: Hair Streekers

When it comes to hair color, I’m not much of an adventurer. There was the time a few years back when I dyed parts of my hair black, and another time when I turned half of my head pink…but aside from those scarce pseudo-rebellious moments in my teen years, I’m a blonde through and through. Recently however, I’ve been looking to to add a bit of color to my ‘do without the long-term commitment.

Hair Streekers is liquid temporary hair dye that provides an instant pop of color. Generlaly speaking, anything “instant” tends to scare me a bit, but I thought I’d give it a go.

I tested out a streak of red in my hair and was impressed with the hue’s richness, though I imagine the look will be slightly less apparent on darker hair colors. Once the color dries, it won’t rub off on skin or clothing, but it does take a few minutes for it to set. Be careful, though – for even color you’ll want to smart with a very thin strand of hair first. I made the mistake of taking a 3-inch chunk of hair the first time around and just painting my hair with the wand. Needless to say, it looked sloppy and childish, but my second time around worked out much better.  Read more
