As I've mentioned in the past, I'm a BuzzAgent. This means that from time to time I get to try out new products for free (they call these try-outs "campaigns"). I try out the products and give my opinions and the opinions of my friends about said products.
Right now I'm in a campaign for L'Oreal Lash Serum. They sent me a tube of the stuff along with a tube of L'Oreal Double Extend (with Lash Boosting Serum) Mascara. I'm to put the Lash Serum along the base of and along my top eyelashes for 4 weeks. It's supposed to make my lashes look "fortified". I'm very interested to see what fortified lashes look like. I know how "longer", "thicker", and "fuller" lashes are supposed to look but I don't really know how lashes can look "fortified.
Anyway, I'm to take naked lash before and after pic's. Here's the before...
Probably should've tried to get the brows under control before I had Dave take these super-close-up shots but... I didn't. You're welcome.
I'm halfway through my 4 weeks so I'll post the after pic's later.
I also went for my twice yearly haircut and color shenanigans. As y'all know, I hate getting my hair done. It's a pain in the butt and even though I have an amazing hairdresser, I still don't like sitting in the chair for over an hour getting my hair fussed with.
My hairdresser always asks if I want her to blow dry/fix my hair when we are done and I always say no. I don't fix my hair at home and I don't think I even own a blow-dryer (unless there's one with my craft stuff) so why take another 1/2 hour off my knitting life sitting in the hair chair.
This time she tricked me. She was engaging me in a lovely conversation and I didn't even notice she was blowdrying my hair until she was half-way done styling it. She moussed, gelled, finger-curled and blow-dryed my hair for over half an hour! When she was done she said I had "Victoria Secret Model's hair". I don't know about that but it was fairly large and diva-ish.
I had Dave take a pic when I got home. If for no other reason then to prove to myself why I really don't do anything with my hair. In the 30 minutes it took me to get home, my hair was 1/3 as big as when I left the salon....
To me it doesn't look Victoria Secret Model hair anymore as much as it looks shaggy stoner chick hair. The only time my hair ever held a style easily was, sadly, in the 80's. I shared a pic of that awhile back. It's here. Again, you're welcome.
I do love this new color though. It's much closer to my real hair color but with more depth and some of the red that I love. Last time it was a bit too light.
Anyone else out there hate having their hair done or is it just me?
Feelin' shaggy but pretty, Ruth!
