L'OREAL Colorista Washout Pink Hair REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

This is

L'OREAL COLORISTA

Washout

in the shade

PINK

The Colorista line comes in 4 different types

SPRAY
WASHOUT
PAINT
EFFECT

The one I have tried is the Washout
There are total of 13 shades to choose from
(here in the UK)
9 of these are Pastel which are aimed for blonde hair (Light to Dark)
The other 4 are Vivids which are aimed for brunette hair,
but even blondes can use it.. the effect last longer than the pastel.

This time, since I'm in a pink mood, I went for the shade

PINK


I might try more shades in the future, I'd love to try Lilac and Purple.

BENEFITS

L'Oréal Paris Colorista Washout fades gradually over 1-2 weeks
so you can switch and change your hair colour whenever you want.

Based on Chroma-Cream technology in a conditioning
hair-mask base, it softly colours your hair while caring at the same time.

It washes out gradually, shampoo after shampoo.

Cost:   £6.99
Size:   80ml
Buy HERE

If you are interested to know more about the application,
timing, before and after and my honest thoughts
I leave you the video of my review
down below


Leave me a comment in case you have tried this product before
and let me know your thoughts.

Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my blog.

This is the

KIKO MILANO

Unlimited Stylo

Lipstick

in the shade number 12

Orchid Violet

DESCRIPTION

"Long-lasting creamy lipstick.
Highly pigmented colour with a semi-matte finish meets long-wearing,
cutting-edge ingredients.
The result is long-lasting make-up.
The formula contains monoi oil and passion fruit extract.

The lipstick clings to the lips, leaving a uniform coat of colour
and a precisely outlined lip contour.
The soft, creamy texture is highly blendable.

The easy-to-apply product feels wonderful.
The colour is revealed instantly and is buildable.

The tube’s special design keeps the lipstick’s ingredients
fresh and performing at their best over time.
The modern aluminum tube is elegant and stands out
thanks to the KK monogram on the cap.

Available in 21 shades: from those that create a natural look to striking, full lips.
The colour notch on the outside of the tube indicates the shade contained inside.

Dermatologically tested"

From KIKO website.

Cost:   £8.90
Size:    2.0 g
Expiration time:   18 Months
Made in Italy

PACKAGING
Very stylish.

SHADE
I love the shade, at the moment I'm really into all those Orchid shades.

FORMULATION
I find the formulation a little bit too dry although at the same time is very lightweight.

STAYING POWER
It lasts quite well during the day.
