MAC Luxure lipgelee & MAC Soiree nail polish, fabulous <3
How is 2011 treating you so far?
For me, it was rather depressing and tough, so I decided I need an image change, to change all the negative energy around me and start anew! And I dyed my hair dark brown with red reflects! Actually the color was called "maroon" and I dyed my hair myself. It is not a permanent color, but one that - in theory - washes away after 24 washes. And since I wash hair everyday, that would last me a month top? But in reality the color stays longer, and I will dye it again when it starts fading. Maybe then I'll try another kind of brown? Hum humm, so many posibilities to play around with hair. ;P When feeling not so hot, changing something about your look (hair color, hair style, buy new clothes, start a new habit or chalenge) is a really good way to change your attitude too. Here is my old and new hair!
BEFORE: old hair
Old hair, no color, no expression, all over meh~
(Pho for lunch with a friend! Vietnamese cuisine is sooo popular in Poland now!)
AFTER: new hair!
Is that maroon? Lol, oh the naming on hair color boxes, who can understand them? :P
And out with friends! My face is soooo round, lol! (T_T)
Friend's faces hidden for privacy, right? :) I had so much fun! <3
And here's what inspired me to change the hair, JELLY 2011.02 issue!

Also, as soon as MAC Champale hit the stores in Poland (which was January 2nd) I run to get my hands on it! I really really wanted the paintpots, but for some reason they were delayed in transport and they had everything from Champale for sale EXCEPT the paintpots, ahh... but they are supposed to be in stores soon (maybe there already?), have to call and ask soon. BUT, I did get something! The Soiree nail polish (I fell in love with after seeing swatches at Tempalia and she recommended it as well) and one lipgelee, Luxure, wich is a super glittery clear gloss - ohh, I looove it!! I will get another one of those I think! See my pictures and swatches below!
Luxure gloss and Soiree nail polish
My nails were uneven, the nail polish applies even and easily, and those are jsut 2 layers, more than enough! I loooove this nail polish! Go get it, it is limited edition!
With flash, I looove the golden reflects, so pretty~
All the glitter in the lipgloss!
It is not overly sticky and stays on lips for a loooong time! It is not super moisturising on my lips though, so I always have to use lip balm or some kind of cream before I apply it - it just feels better. Also there is another one that looks almost identical to Luxure, but Luxure is more beige/golden/warm toned, while the other one is more white/pink/cool toned. Though they look almost identical in the tubes... oh well, I want to get it now after wearing Luxure for a couple days! 8D
And here are swatches on lips! It also looks wonderful over nudy lipstick, I like it on it's own, but it is also great over Cream Cup or Myth! :D
Ah, got to go and get the paintpots though! :D
Also, I want to recommend you two really great blog posts! First one by D-tan, whose blog is packed with great information and contents, but this post is just perfect: A beginners guide to gal style false eyelashes You must all go and read it! :D The second post I really loved was EAST MEETS WEST: LOUIS VUITTON X KYOTO by the ever so lovely Hana of Finding Tokyo. I love the colabo so much!
