Presenting L'Oréal's "Sublime Mousse"
Where to find it: Any Pharmacy
Use: Hair Dye
Ease of use: Moderate
Smell: Strong yet Sweet
Packaging: Steril but Attractive
Price: Around 10$
I have dark brown/black hair with crazy natural red and light brown streaks & in the summer it's worse - So I choose to regularly dye my hair black. I usually use L'Oreal Préférence in Black but I thought I'd try out something new & I figured the mousse would probably give me better application since I always seem to run out of the gel/goo/liquid that Préférence provides. The application was strange, the mousse comes out in varying shades which makes you wonder if you shook the bottle enough - trust me, I shook the damn thing for a minute, it's just how the product is! Also the packaging gives the impression you'll be dealing with a pump - unfortunately it's still that squeeze bottle crap that gets dye everywhere when you put it down. I have to say though, the application was significantly smoother and gave way more coverage than I'm use to. I am very happy with the result & will probably try it again in the future.
Final word: Worth a try!

Day of the Dead' (Spanish: Día de los Muertos). The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it attains the quality of a National Holiday. The celebration takes place on October 31st through November 3rd, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day(November 1) and All Souls' Day (November 2). Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. The Day of the Dead is a time of celebration when eating and parties are common.This holiday is similar to All Saints Day.
Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztecfestival dedicated to a goddess called Mictecacihuatl. In Brazil, Dia de Finados is a public holiday that many Brazilians celebrate by visiting cemeteries and churches. In Spain, there are festivals and parades, and, at the end of the day, people gather at cemeteries and pray for their dead loved ones. Similar observances occur elsewhere in Europe, and similarly themed celebrations appear in manyAsian and African cultures.

Presenting Hard Candy's "Glitteratzi"
Where to find it: Walmart
Use: A glitter spray you apply to the body
Ease of use: Unpleasant
Price: Around 10$
I was looking for a product to apply on my burlesque models during photo shoots - something glittery that would would just add to the glitz of the photos. Believe it or not it's hard to find a good product! When I came across Hard Candy's Glitteratzi I thought my problems were solved! Urgh! This product is not what it seems, yes - the packaging is fun & there is no smell BUT the application is really disappointing. The label reads "Shimmer Body Spray" but much to my dismay the product actually comes out as an oily goop with little sparkle at all! You'd think by looking at the transparent packaging that you'd get much more than four sparkles per square inch and the oily texture that you have no choice but to rub in is fairly unpleasant. I would not recommend this product!
Final word: Don't buy it!
