Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection’ #ColorMeClairol – After!

IMG_20131001_091242

It’s officially October and while I’m not loving this rain, I am ready for Fall. In the summer I love platinum highlights but switching to a golden blonde is a much easier maintenance color for Fall and Winter. The color I chose is classic very light from Clairol Professional’s Classic Collection. I still can’t believe how easy it was to mix my own dye and color my own hair right from the comfort of my own home.

It is always fun to add a few pieces to your wardrobe with the change of seasons.  I love the cool, crisp weather of Fall and bringing out warm sweaters and coats. And with my new  haircolor, its time to add some fun new pieces for Fall.  The cool weather makes it even easier to add fun accessories with a pop of color. My plan was to grab a few new Fall clothing items and have a fun head to toe style photo. But I got a nasty cold this weekend and we were hit with a huge storm, so I decided to try to not look sick and hide indoors until I am well enough to do a little shopping. Here is an idea of the look I am shopping to create for Fall.

REVIEW: Professional ‘Classic Collection’ #ColorMeClairol


clairol-1

How many of you guys dye your own hair?? I have to. I just can’t afford to keep up my hair at a salon anymore. Nice part is, there are companies like Clairol that make amazing at-home products so you don’t have to go to the salon anymore! You can mix and dye your own hair – right in the comfort of your home!

Tip: You might call your hair dresser and ask what color she uses on your hair. You can take that number – and buy the color yourself – and dye your hair for a fraction of the cost! Personally, I use 6N for my hair. For this post, we decided to color Erin’s hair, and for that we used 9N.

Watch how easy this process was!! All you need is a bowl, a brush and plastic gloves! I picked these up for under $5 at my local beauty store.

Step 1: Pour PRE-MEASURED Developer in a bowl! (No measuring – just empty the contents in a bowl!)

Step 2: Add pre-measured color to developer!

Step 3: Mix to combine! THAT’S IT!!

Three unbelievably easy steps! There’s no measuring, no fuss! You simply pick your color – mix the two together – and go nuts! Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection’ has taken all the hassle out of dying your hair!

After I mixed the color – I easily applied the color to Erin’s hair. You let the color sit for 30-45 minutes, and you’re done!

We’ll show you the after pictures – soon! Stay tuned!

At MakeHerUp we are always looking to pursue new beauty products and ideas to make sure we have something for everyone. One thing we have been missing is a teen section, with products for teens and reviews from teenagers on what they love right now.

Maybe you are a teenager looking for great, affordable products or have a teen in your life and want help finding the right products for them. Our new MakeHerUp teen corner will have reviews and products for the girls just starting their journey in the wonderful world of beauty products.

 Natalie’s Beauty Review:
I was able to somehow convince my friends daughter to take a box of products and try them all out. She let me know what products she loved and which ones were a bit lacking.

I loved the black nail polish, especially because it went on so nicely. I recieved tons of compliments on it but all minus 3 fingers had chips in them. Despite the chips I would definitely take the time to paint my nails again with this same color the next day. The silver glitter chunky nail polish was a perfect match to go with the black following the trendy different colored middle finger.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Opulent Lacquer Trio $18
A set of mini nail polish trios with glamorous colors, rich metallic finishes, and multidimensional textures.

Inspired by Pantone’s 2013 Plus Series Metallic Book, this season is all about the rich gleam of rose gold, the chilled shine of silver, and the fiery glow of bronze. These limited-edition nail lacquers are packaged in complementary trios, combining beautiful shades with eye-catching finishes: metallic, sparkle, and metallic-matte. Use each lacquer solo or combine these beauties for unique nail designs all your own.

 

I liked the Mark in a Whirl Lip Gloss because it added a nice pink tint to my lips as well as a smooth feeling.

Mark in a Whirl Lip Gloss $8
Swirls of two ultra-high-shine, shimmery shades combine in this limited-edition marbleized formula.

 

Mark Lash All You Want has become one of my favorite mascaras, it was extremely easy to get the look of nice long lashes. I usually get clumps in my lashes but i haven’t gotten a single clump with this mascara and it really lengthened my lashes.

Mark Lash All You Want $10
Lash All You Want mascara adds 20 times the volume to lashes!! Unique brush has bristles at the tip to get at the tiniest lashes.

If you’re looking for a mature look in eye liners, the Sephora + pantone universe brown eye liner (pencil) would be the one, it was a nice color and fitting for everyday use. the only draw back I saw was the pencil would dull very easily when being used.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Foiled Waterproof Eyeliner Set $30
A set of six highly pigmented, mega-metallic, waterproof eyeliners. Inspired by Pantone’s 2013 Plus Series Metallic Book, this season is all about the rich gleam of rose gold, the chilled shine of silver, and the fiery glow of bronze. The smooth formula contains polymers that effortlessly glide on color and lock pigment in place with a waterproof seal, and the ultra-creamy texture is perfect for blending or creating a precise, stylized line.

 

I enjoyed the Clairol Smooth hair cream because my hair had virtually no frizz the next morning (i used it at night), my hair was easy for me to work with an extremely soft. I really liked how it looked the next day, just the natural look of my hair was great and I received a lot of compliments.
