Sorry I haven’t blogged for a little over a week, between school and moving, I haven’t had much time to spare!
But anyway, my most recent dilemma is… WHAT HAIR COLOR DO I WANT NEXT?? Ive been trying to decide all week and my appointment is next Wednesday.. AHHH
I’m going to drop some pictures and I need YOU to help me decide what I want to try.. your opinion will help!! I know I want an ombre of some sort but I’m not too sure about the colors, remember that I’m super pale so that is a factor when picking hair color ( but anything is better than black right?)
Look at my Pinterest for more of an idea of what I might want and please give me any opinion you have!!
Thanks for your help!!
I have been box dying my hair black for years.. at the time it was simple and cheap. . . what a mistake that was.
This color took over a month and four appointments to achieve from black
lots of lightening treatments results in lots of processed hair.. gotta start taking better care of it!!
Thank god one of my best friends(@_cut.color.chelsea_) is a hair stylist and was willing to fix my hair for me! She also gave me a few pro tips…
Never box dye your hair
Don’t use ANY drug store hair products…. they ruin your hair with sulfates and other chemicals! Just spend the extra money for a better product& healthy hair
Get your dead ends cut every few weeks
Brand name drugstore hair products are more expensive than if you were to buy them in the salon
DONT FORGET TO USE HEAT PROTECTANT no matter what tool you use! Including your blow dryer!
I threw away ALL of my drugstore hair products.. and I mean everything… I completely restocked my supply with proper healthy hair brands from the salon
Keep your friends close and your stylist friends closer!
Don’t forget to follow me(@luxurious_life_of_lil) and my personal sylist(@_cut.color.chelsea_) on Instagram. . . . feel free to comment or message one of us on Instagram if you have any questions!!

Have acne? Random breakouts? Want that to stop? Want to spend less than $50 for flawless skin?……
Mario Badescu has amazing products THAT ACTUALLY WORK!! I started using these products about 3 months ago and I have not had a single breakout since. My skin is combination but a bit more oily. I no longer need to pack my face with makeup to hid embarrassing acne breakouts.
Here is a bit more info on these products:
- VERY gentle on the skin
- Extremely affordable compared to other brands
- For ALL skin types
- High quality
Acne Facial Cleanser
leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed but not over dry. . . it is only $15 for a high end brand that actually works
Rose Facial Spray
I personally use this as a make up setting spray.. keeps my makeup on all day without feeling heavy or slimy. It is $7 and works better than any other expensive brand I have tried.
Special Healing Powder
This looks a bit odd for being ‘makeup’ but I often use it to cover redness on my face. I put it on before my regular powder and it literally heals your skin during the day when you’re out and about. It’s basically like a facemask but in makeup form for only $12
This is an actual facemask (in powder form) that I use when I am feeling any sort of bumps that may be turning into a breakout. Its a powder, that you have to wet of on a little cotton pad and then rub on your face. It turns into a paste… feels a little weird at first but it is worth the result.
I have had success with EVERY product that I have tried from this brand. They have many other products to target different types of skin types.. these are what I personally use for my skin.
ALSO, buying from Nordstrom will be your cheapest option as they have free shipping all the time, even on small orders. Here is the Mario Badescu website
, try to keep up with their sales for the best deals.
UPDATE: Here are more awesome and effective products I got!
