But I wanted Ombre Hair!!!

Last week Sunday (Thanksgiving) after ogling over ombre hair for hours I made the decision to visit my local Beauty Supply Store. I knew exactly what I wanted BLOND!

One thing to know about me is that I'm usually a NOT risk taker. Basically I'm the "analyzer" of my friends. The one who over thinks and gives out rationale advice...*Raises hand*

So, buying a lightener was a HUGE thing. I went back and forth with myself for hours after buying the dye. My biggest fear was what if It came out hideous!!
As usual my BF assured me that everything would be ok. I'm not sure if he really agreed or was just being comforting! LOL
My goal was the copper not the super bleached ends. 
I felt like that would look best on my skin tone.


Its crazy how a little copper can look so great!
 Different lighting

I kept the bleach in for 45 mins. 
I really should have keep it in longer but I was scared LOL

Next time I'll go MUCH lighter :D

Remember in May when I attended the Payless ShoeSource Spring/Summer 2011 Collection Preview ? I was given a sneak peak at the Fall 2011 Collection. I can't explain how hard it was not to post the pictures for you all to see *covers eyes*. I'm OBSESSED with those cobalt blue & leopard heels!

Enjoy Ladies!

The Body Shop: Extra Virgin Minerals Foundation Line + Mature skin pictures

A few weeks ago the Body Shop came out with Extra Minerals Virgin Line. At least 75% of their product range contains Community Fair Trade ingredients or accessories. Amazing!

Check out the three foundations:
  • Cream-to-powder mineral foundation contains pure minerals and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil for an immaculate, matte finish.
  • This moisturising fluid foundation contains ultra-fine minerals and extra virgin olive oil. It gives light to medium coverage with an immaculate, dewy finish. 
  • This featherlight powder base gives a radiant, natural-looking finish and can be built up for extra coverage. It is non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin.
I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity to try out the line in the darkest shade. I have a slight amount of red in my undertone, so the color was not 100% perfect.
Luckily I had a client who was going to an event which skin tone suited this color precisely! 
She has perfect, wrinkle-free skin in her 50`s and only needed a light to medium coverage.
I love the dewy finish and how great this foundation looks with flash.

Happy to have these products added to my kit!

Marcelle Cosmetics Favs: Hydra-C Ultra-Light Matifying Fluid & Soothing Cleansing Water

As a Canadian Beauty Blogger I love highlighting Canadian beauty products. Marcelle is not a stranger to Spiced Beauty! I've been blogging about them since early 2010.

It is been a pretty "hot" fall and I'm still OILY!!

Lovely Isabelle from Marcelle read my mind when she sent me the Hydra-C Ultra-Light Matifying Fluid!

Since I don't wear foundation daily I really needed to invest in a GOOD matifier!

I remember when I tried it out the first time. For some reason I thought it would be dry like a primer but it wasn't. It was wet! I freaked out! Within seconds it dried to matte finish.

Definitely a recommend if your a oily blogger like myself LOL

Good Stuff: The formula rich in antioxidants, vitamins C, E and B5, aloe vera and cucumber extract. 
Last but not least Marcelle Soothing Cleansing Water!

I wear liner & mascara daily so removal is a serious issue for me.. especially after a LONG day!

This was my first time using Cleansing water and I'm a fan. I'm so surprised how water can clean off all my makeup even the waterproof stuff!!

I don't have to rub my eyes profusely like the oil based removers. It`s funny but once the oil gets into your eyes..its over..

My method - I soak a cotton pad with Soothing Cleansing Water and saturate it on the lid. If I have more time I do a extra foam cleanse, if not, since its a soothing water I just go to bed.

Good Stuff: Rinse-free formula that micro-emulsifies impurities and waterproof make-up without irritating skin, gentle for even the driest and most sensitive complexions.

Waterproof eyeshadow
