To be honest it probably doesn't look as bad as you had been expecting but given that it used to look like this:
|I realise its also horribly patchy - rectified that last night with Em's help!|
It feels a hell of a lot darker to me. I have washed it a couple of times to try and tone it down and whilst I can live with it for now I am not sure what to do next. I think I might just have to revert to using the dark blonde I was using before and hope that this fades like the blondes used to. I think we both know that isn't going to happen. More than anything I am hacked off that I am now likely to have to pay a hairdresser to fix a problem I created by using a £7 poxy hair dye, bloody stuff.
Couple more pics, decided to take advantage of having the camera out to show you a couple of Benefit newbies that I am loving at the moment. First up Velvet eyeshadow in Gimme some plum, described as an iced plum - which sounds horribly frosty, its not. I had set out to buy Where there's smoke described as smoky pewter but it was more dirty brown than taupe, which is what I was after. Having decided I wasn't going home without a Benefit eyeshadow I am really glad I got this one, I have been wearing it all over my lid with a bit of black powder or liner on the lash line to give my eyes some definition.
Its my perfect colour for a pulled together look without being overly made up.
My other recent purchase is the lipstick, Benefit full-finish in Do Tell, a warm pink, with no hint of brown which works as a nude but pink mlbb colour.
If anyone has any suggestions as to how I can tone down my hair please share - I have tried washing with Head and Shoulders but am loathe to use ColourB4 as its already dry and I don't want it a shit colour and frizzy as hell too!
