Name: Palty Hair Dye
Colour: Milk Tea Brown
Price: £12

 I wanted a change with my hair colour so I decided to get the Palty Hair Dye. I have used the Palty Bubble Hair dye before. I liked the colour that it turned out to be but there was so little in the product that it was best to use two boxes instead of one. This time I bought the regular Palty Hair Dye in Milk Tea Brown. Palty has more ranges of light colours to choose from compared to Liese.

 My hair is brown (the second picture on the box) so my hair should turn out to be a lighter brown.

The box comes with the usual hair dye where you empty container 1 into container 2. This product comes with a brushfor easy application. There is also a cream to put after you wash and dry your hair to make your hair softer. I don't think the comb really helped that much. You had to really squeeze the dye out to apply it to your hair. You are suppose to leave this product on for 20 minutes but I think I left it on a bit longer so the colour will show better. One box was not enough for my hair. I needed two boxes.

Before (I dyed my hair colour with Liese Milk Tea Brown in June):


 The colour is actually quite similar to the box from the photo. However, in real life it is not as light as that especially in dim lighting. I was annoyed as I felt some part of my hair was not dyed properly and there were some patches that was a bit dark and some light. I think if I had two boxes, it would have been perfect.

- the colour really showed
- my hair felt really soft after using it
- it doesn't smell too bad
- one box was not enough
- difficult to apply to hair with the comb
- a bit pricey
 Rating: 8/10
I am very happy with the hair colour that came out. What I am annoyed about generally with hair dye is when I dye it but it doesn't look like I have dyed my hair but with this one, the colours really showed. However, I was disappointed that one box was not enough to cover my hair and I felt there was certain parts of my hair not dyed properly. My hair smelt nice and it felt soft and shiny after dying it.

Name: Laneige Silk Intense Lipstick - LR104 Pink Garden
Price: £18
 Where to buy: Ebay

I decided to try this lipstick since it has been quite hyped up by Laneige at some point in time. I wanted to get a natural lip colour for everyday use. I have watched the drama "That Winter the Wind Blows" and I liked the colour that Song Hye Kyo was wearing so I got the Pink Garden. This product is quite dear. The packaging is very unique and pretty.

This lipstick is very moisturising. The colour is also pigmented but what I don't like about this lipstick is that it had too much glitter. This makes my lipsticks look soft so it reminds me of revlon lip butter. This isn't long lasting either.
This lipstick is quite over-hyped. I will not recommend to buy this product again because of the cost of it and there are many drugstore lipstick that has the same function but less pricey.

Name: Color Riche Collection Blake's Pure Red
Price: £6.99
 Where to buy: Boots/Superdrug

I am going through the lipstick phase just now of make-up. I just want to get lots of different colours and I am trying to find one that is long-lasting as well. This is going to be a short review on this lipstick.

So as you can see, I got the Blake's Pure Red. I saw this in Superdrug and being a Gossip Girl fan and a Blake Lively admirer I decided to try this lipstick out. This has very good branding to be honest. Firstly, it was on sale so half of the lipsticks in this collection line was sold out and secondly of all, this l'oreal lipstick collection had all these A-listing celebrities advertising that I am sure many girls are tempted to by this product.

I don't think the photo of my lips give justice to the colour of this lipstick in real life since it looks a bit pinkish red. I think the one on the hand is a better representation.
I love this lipstick! It is good if you are wearing it to work and want to look professional or business woman like. This lipstick smells like the usual nice lipstick smell and it is very pigmented. This is also very long lasting as well (although the colour gets lighter throughtout the day obviously.) It doesn't feel dry on my lips either.
I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to find a good matte, red lipstick.
