New hair color + random FOTD (pic heavy)

Hi guys! As promised, I will show you how my blue black DIY hair coloring experience turned out.

Many of you probably had already seen my newest YT vids, so you have an idea of what it looks like. However, the difference is MUCH more apparent in pictures.

This is my BEFORE hair. It's SUPPOSED to be dark burgundy, but after a few months it's faded into an orange-y auburn-y mess.

This is my hair right after I washed it. At this point my hair was so blue it scared me sh*tless. Also please excuse my skin. It was that time of the month.

After it had dried: It's super shiny but SUPER dark.

With a little makeup thrown on:

I really like the way it turned out. After some getting used to, I actually really like how the blue tone looks on my hair. Unfortunately the hair color I used (L'oreal Feria in Soft Polished Black from Sally's) fades really easily even though it's supposed to be PERMANENT. The blue tint got washed away after 3 washes. :(

My hair now: I was on my way to have lunch w/ Nathan at his school.

I really like the "No makeup" makeup recently. I think w/ darker hair, I can get away with wearing less makeup.

I have to say that Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Foundation is the BOMB!!! Its coverage is amazing AND it's moisturizing. $50 price tag is a bit hard to swallow, but DAYUM! LOOK AT MY SKIN!!! The blush is MAC Bite of an Apple which came out w/ MAC Venomous Villains. LOVE IT!

I've also be testing out Personal Microderm and it's been rocking my socks. I will do a detailed review on that later.

Speaking of lunch, my favorite sandwich place is called Half Fast. It's right by CU Boulder. The price is right, the food is amazing, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Therefore Nathan and I often go there to get a quick bite.

The inside:

I got a 14 inch Italian sandwich. It's basically a pizza sandwich. AMAZING.

It has Italian sausage, pepperoni, green bell peppers, mozzarella, marinara sauce, all on wheat bread. NOM NOM NOM.

Anyways, I hope you all have a great day. I'm in the process of hosting a HUUUUUUUUUUUGE blog sale. HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE I tell ya. So please stick around for that!
