Back to Blonde (Photo Heavy)


Serving you some Draco Malfoy realness lawl

After spending forever trying to get into my personal Instagram account (I totally forgot my password, which just goes to show how often I actually use the app lawl) to frantically hunt down something appropriate to wear during Ramadan, I kept on receiving those annoying notifications from Instagram on my phone afterwards. I spent weeks ignoring them, but on July 12, I’d finally had enough and tried to disable the notifications through the app itself, which is when an ad for Belleza and more Salon & Spa popped up. I clicked the ad (which took me to their insta account) and immediately my eyes were drawn to the photo shown below.

Translation: Ammonia-free Dye and Bleach… Extra Strength Protection used with every Hair Coloring Session… so the hair does not get damaged and the color remains… vibrant and rich with a beautiful shine to make the hair appear healthy and fresh

As soon as I spotted that gorgeous ash-blonde color (in the After photo) I was obsessed! Seeing as how I’d just chopped off all my hair (pics, here), I was less hesitant about messing with it. Plus, they straight up advertised “ammonia-free dye” and “extra-strength protection”. It seemed legit. Being the impulsive creature that I am, I quickly called them up and made an appointment (30 mins from time of call) to dye my hair!

ColourPop 5 Million Instagram Followers Haul

Once again, ColourPop came out with a whole slew of new products (Pressed Powder Blushes, Pressed Powder Bronzers, Pressed Powder Highlighters, Crystal Liquid Highlighters, Crystal Setting Sprays, Crystal Priming Sprays, Crystal Lip Balms, Brow Products, Concealers, Makeup Brushes)!!!! What’s more, they even updated their website with more accurate photos (infinitely better than the previous ones, at least) of all their products! They also came out with some new shades in the Super Shock Shadows range. The Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal on all their Liquid Lipsticks was still ongoing, as was the Free Empty Eyeshadow Palette you got with every purchase of 4 Pressed Powder Shadows. I wasn’t planning on placing yet another order… up until ColourPop hit 5 million followers on Instagram and they decided to celebrate by coming out with 5 Limited Edition products that you got for free (well, technically as a gift with purchase)!

We are celebrating reaching 5 million on Instagram with limited edition items for a grab bag starting tomorrow at 10am PST!
Fab Five Lippie Stix, Nine to Five Ultra Glossy, Take Five Ultra Matte, High Five Super Shock Highlighter, Party of Five Super Shock Shadow

Spend $10 + Get 1
Spend $25 + Get 2
Spend $40 + Get 3
Spend $55 + Get 4
Spend $70 + Get all 5

My order was $100 exactly, so I qualified for all 5 but didn’t get the Fab Five Lippie Stix so I’m assuming that they ran out of stock by then (my order was placed on August 30th). Despite that, it’s a really cool deal and I appreciate the fact that ColourPop are constantly coming up with new shades, all-new products, interesting collaborations, and all kinds of promotions! Basically, I love that ColourPop are always trying to keep things exciting!
