The Hair Bug

No no no no no, I'm not talking about lice or any of that nastiness.  I'm talking about the hair bug...the urge I get once every 6 months to do something crazy to my locks.  Cut it short, dye it a crazy color, get a fringe, or the like.  Here are some of the photos that have my mouth watering and my leg twitching to dupe on myself.

Jessica Sutta  (yep, the redheaded pussycat doll).  This has been a go-to photo of mine for a loooong time coming now.  I am always apprehensive about adding red to my hair, because my face gets really red and splotchy sometimes, and i thought, this hair change will only bring it out even more. Regardless, I lust after these gorgeous auburn long locks on a daily basis. 

Miranda Kerr....and for that matter, most VS Angels.  They always have the most perfect shade with the most perfect highlights.  If I could splurge on one hair appointment, it would most definitley be with whoever highlights Miranda, Adriana, and Gisele's hair.  Never stripey, never orange, always gorgeous.  Anyway, this color would be very easy for me to achieve, just a brightening of my highlights and a touch up of the brown in my hair, and i'm there! Seems so simple....decisions decisions.
How is it possible that Disney always manages to find the most awkward looking 12 year old actresses around, and they always bloom within 3 years into the most gorgeous people on google images? This shade of blonde is what I had intentions of going to the last time I lightened my hair, but after 2 sessions of highlights, I caught the hair bug AGAIN and went back down to Megan Fox brown. But of course, there has to be a shade of barbie blonde in my array of hair color just wouldn't be complete without an ashley, a melissa or a carrie.

speaking of Megan Fox....I was browsing the internet and found this gorgeous photo of her with sun-kissed brown hair.  A bit of a change from her usual chocolate brown locks, this look is not so harsh and much more adaptable for paler skin like mine.  Unfortunatley my city only gets about 4 months of summer so the risk of my hair lightening from the sun is very very low, so if a dye job happens to be too harsh, i'm usually stuck with it for at least 75 shampoos.

Jennifer Aniston.   Enough said.
Who are your lusted-after celebrity hair icons?

Covergirl Last Blast Length Mascara

As the producers of one of the most sought-after mascaras around, CoverGirl has re-invented the formulation, application, and packaging of their infamous Lash Blast mascara and created Lash Blast Length.  The new version attempts to create the luscious gorgeous lashes you get with the original mascara, with the addition of getting the long curly beauties every girl dreams of! What a great investment! I'll take it.


The main difference between the old mascara and the new of course being the change in the structure of the wand.  The old wand, as so many of us are familiar with, is thicker & wider at the middle, while the new is longer and slimmer.  I'm not really sure on how this would create longer lashes, but if CoverGirl says so, I guess I have to believe it!

As for the results, well, they were fine, I wasn't blown away though.  I recieved the same results from one coat of this formulation as I would with two coats of the old formulation, with length in mind.  When considering volume, however, it does not coat my lashes as thoroughly as the old formulation, so the result in comparison : old=thick luscious lashes, new=long whispy lashes.


I've come to accept the fact that no mascara will do exactly what i wish it would, because the lashes I adore and lust after (Kim Kardashian, VS Angels, etc.) are often layered with 2 pairs of falsies and are nearly impossible to achieve with mascara alone.  So this mascara was a nice product to try, but I think i'll stick to my Avon Supershock, to keep my lashes and my wallet happy!

What is your favorite mascara? have you found your holy grail mascara yet?
