LOTD & OOTD: LUNA SEA Concert ~ Hair Colour Adventure ~ Reviews (feat. MUFE, L'Oreal, Goldwell)

Heyyyyy alll~ Today I'm going to talk about my experience on my first ever Jrock concert, LUNA SEA The End of the Dream Asia Tour 2013, which happened past Friday! ^_^
First up is my LOTD~ All ready to go for the Rockin'! ~\m/(^_,^)\m/~
 
 
My Hair Colour Adventure
Before I continue... I just wana show something I did on the eve of the Jrock concert.
Well, besides planning what to wear for the concert... I re-dyed my hair. With all the salons fully booked or closed for the Chinese New Year season, I decided to attempt DIY Hair dye at home to bring the orange back to life! 
My orange hair basically had faded till almost ashy orange? light peach? some said amber.. well I duno what to call it, just see it for yourself.. ^_^"
Gahhhhhhhh... The ends are almost grey!
 
And so, I bought this Berina Hair Color Cream in A19 Golden Orange at IvyCosmetics only for $9.90 (90cents discount=$9) just because.... its named Golden Orange, the colour that I want. hahax~
This hair dye is made in Thailand. There are no gloves, instructions manual slips, capes, hair conditioner/mask.. nothing.
*Note the exp date is May 2013!!! I only realised it after I used it. =_="


 
Except for these 2 cream & 9%..... Bleach i guess?


 
Forgetting that my hair had already gone through bleaching, I went on squeezing all the contents from the tube and bottle into this Tau Huey Bowl. So who wants some tau huey?? Yum~~~
 
 
Berina Hair Color Cream Review
Even though the dye has bleach in it, I don't smell or feel any 'bleaching' on my scalp. But when I wash off the dye, my hair feels dry or I should say, drier than before I dyed it. So did the bleach make my hair dry? If so, then why is my roots still kinda black? hmmm...
When washing, the 'red' dye got washed out very fast... or maybe my hair is short? The red dye didn't bleed anymore after about 5 mins of rinsing.


 
My hair taken on the next day looks like this in my Iphone. I love the waves~~~ Looks super smooth yah? Lolx~

 
 
 
L'Oreal Paris EverStrong Deep Replenishing Masque Review
For these few days, I been washing my hair with several different shampoos depending on my scalp condition. I don't wash depending on my hair condition because scalp to me is more important and if it gets really oily, it will affect my mood and of course, my hair style too (which inturn will also affect my mood if I have bad hair day. lolx~)
I have been using L'Oreal Paris EverStrong Deep Replenishing Masque religiously almost every 2 days for my hair ends. It helps in hydrating my dry hair ends without making it feel oily, sleek (I don't like hair to be sleek), flat and most importantly, it doesn't cause itchiness to my scalp or worst, by making my scalp oily too. I know we don't apply hair mask on the scalp or near it, but with my short hair it is inevitable. The mask will definitely get to my scalp one way or another when I run it through my hair with my fingers.


 
The texture of the masque looks like this:


 
 
After masking, I will apply conditioner. (Just like face, you need a serum and a moisturiser. Hair works like this too) With my new warm orange hair, I definitely need a conditioner that can keep its colour and radiance. I dug into my stash of hair products and found Goldwell ColorGlow Deep Reflects Conditioner (Warm Brown) which I received quite sometime back (last year) from them.
Warm Brown... for Warm Golden Orange hair... that would work yah? Hhahax~
For the past few days, my hair colour maintained pretty well without any bleeding at all during hair wash. So I suppose this hair conditioner did helped alot. It also helped in smoothing my hair texture especially the ends. But it felt slightly oily, so I applied only a little bit, unlike the hair mask.


 
Anyhoo, after 4 days, my hair looks like this. 
(Left pic: Under indoor white spot light. Right pic: Under natural sunlight)
At least the orange is still bright & obvious and the ends didn't fade to blonde/ grey. I'm not sure if it will continue to fade after that.. I shall monitor it and update on Instagram if it does.



 
 
Alright, now back to my LOTD!~
I only used 2 purple shades for this look. Continue to read to learn what I used on my eyes~
 
Don't be blaffed by the neon shade here, it only appear super purple because of the lighting... and I'm using the front cam of my Iphone. ^_^" Later in this post, you will get to see more of my LOTD~
 
 
OOTD: Rock on!!!
I was debating whether to wear this denim vest or not... Posted this on instagram, twitter & FB and everyone who replied said 'wear it'!
And so I did!~
Oh, my purple eyes matches the web/fishnet tights. Thanks to Jerlaine for reminding me to wear PRETTY leggies, and so she kinda reminded me that I have these for a long time but haven't got chance to wear them. Super happy that I can put them on now~ Btw its actually a gift from Na. ^_^

LUNA SEA The End of the Dream Asia Tour 2013
Gotta thank these people for bringing cameras and offering to take pics with me otherwise, I won't have any pics of me at the event. hahhax~
Here's me, Xinyi, Kiyora and Kiyora's friend. Credits to xinyi's camera and her bf, Jon.
I'm like a big giant beside them.... (<_<")
 
And thanks to Kai too for taking pic with me~ Why i look so upset? Cos my hair got centre parting?
I like her tattoo stockings! Just realised we both wear denim outers. hahax~
 
And finally inside the concert hall!! I think its fate that my Jrock 'old' friends (not old as in age..) came walking in infront of us. I literally just wave my hands into their face hahhax~
 
This is the one and only most beautiful picture I took using my iPhone... As can see, I'm at the upper deck. Alot of my friends are at the first level! I'm not a huge HUGE fan of LUNA SEA but I still love them especially Sugizo! ^_^ And I love Ryuichi's vocal~ It makes me tremble~~~
I must say that I enjoyed the concert alot more than a Kpop concert. I love both kinds of music but for me to enjoy it is to be able to see the artistes with my very own eyes and not through a camera screen. As much as I want to capture them in my phone too, I don't go through the hassle of recording the concert or snapping 323059592348 photos of them the whole time. If I really want to, 10 pics or 1 min video clip is more than enough.
From the upper deck, I can clearly spot less than 10% of the fans are holding their phones/camera up to take pics/videos of Luna Sea when they were performing. When it come to silence moments, there will be more than 30% of the fans holding their phones up. And when they start performing again, all phones are down.
Unlike Kpop concerts (or MAMA which I went to), its like more than 30% of the fans will hold their phones up throughout the concert. I cant even see who is dancing infront of me. All I could see are the artistes through someone else's phone/camera screen. I think Jrock fans truely know how to enjoy a concert, they jump, they shriek, they headbang to every song that Luna Sea plays. I love this kind of crowd... or perhaps, its because we are older? I think most Luna Sea fans are like age 25 and above? lolx~ So we kinda feel tired holding a phone up for too long.. (besides Sebas that is. Lolx~)
 
 
 
After the concert, old friends gathered at Bugis for steamboat x BBQ. No need to say where I am, you can spot me even from another building.
 
An instagram pic of me and Mimi after the concert~ His pupils sho big!
 
 
LOTD with MUFE & Sleek Palettes
Left: MUFE TechniColor palette
Right: Sleek Carribean palette

 
I headbanged, I sweat, I ate steamboat.. and my hair & face is like this...

 
Eye makeup featuring the 'Lilac' shade from MUFE TechniColor palette and 'Purple Haze' from Sleek Carribean palette.
I applied Lilac all over my eyelid and then used Purple haze at the crease and outer corner. I need to practice more on shading dark colours as I always have 1 rounded corner and 1 sharp corner. *sigh~*
Even though the purple doesn't look neon as it is in previous pic, it still looks strong and very obvious when I look at it in the mirror. It didn't fade or have any fall-outs either.
The MUFE Lilac colour-payoff is really great! When I apply it on my eyes, the colour is exactly how it looks like from the palette. You know when you use light shades, it often appear even lighter than the palette. Or most of the time I think it is until I met MUFE eye shadows. Gota ♥♥♥ them!
Sleek's Purple haze is also pigmented but I find it hard to blend it into MUFE Lilac. I can see obvious lines of the dark purple at my creases. PLUS, I lack the skill in doing such eye makeup properly, so the whole eyelid colour just look kinda uneven. I am sorry to have spoilt all of your eyes for looking at my ugly LOTD... ^__,^"""
 
 
To end this post with a CNY mood, I present you red flowers sold by JONES!
One JONES selling CNY decorations not enough, there must be another JONES selling flowers ah?

 

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

miwitch's Journey of Kpop to the West ~ HOTD by Goldwell Singapore

I went on 4 June for Kpop Heal the World concert.
Here's my LOTD. With  I.Fairy contact lens in Ash Grey.


Here's my OOTD
Inner neon orange racer back: Hong Kong
Starry outer tee: Hong Kong
Tie-dye denim shorts: Topshop
Navy-Black leggings: Hong Kong
MAD High-top shoes: GMarket
Various large Bangles: GMarket

Phototaking wasn't allowed during the concert and all the pics were too blur which I took with my iPhone. Hence here, I'm posting MBlaq in Singapore ??? Hotel? hahax.. (Found this in one of their twitter, i think was posted by GO.)
Look at Lee joon, he looked like ghost. hahhax~ And Mir? (NO MAKEUP NO MAKEUP!~ Lolx~ Forever won't forget this phrase he said. kekex~)

And first week of June, I'm in this hair colour.


MOODY~ ZZzzz~~

The 2nd week of June, I went to a hair colour afternoon workshop "Magic colors with Rene Janssens" together with Ah Ru, Na and Ariya.
And then, my hair transformed into THIS!~  YESH! I'm blonde now! ^_^


I wasn't really expecting to lighten my hair colour to this level, I was thinking to have my hair be just slightly yellow-er than my previous orange hair. But then, due to someone who drew a skullhead onto my hair profile paper wanting it to turn white, so my hair was bleached at almost maximum power. IT HURTS AND ITCH MY SCALP SHO MUCH CAN!! (Wans pretty, dun want life. Haix~)
After washing off the bleach, a light purple colourant was put on. But the purple was too light to be noticable unless there is white light and you look at it  close up. (like shown above)

At the workshop, Ah ru dying her hair red. Na dying her hair brownish-red, and behind me is Ariya (Na's sis) in red...marron? hahax.. I can't make out the colour..


Check out Ah ru's super hot red hair! Woohoo! I love it to bits at that split second when they took off the towel from her hair! It was like Magic! Hahhaax~
I'm the first to finish! (Cos I need to rush off early~ *runs*)

 

 

 

At home nothing to do, playing around with props and my new bleached hair~ Kekekex..

Makeup used:
L'Oreal Paris HIP Color Chrome Eyeliner in Violet Volt
L'Oreal Paris HIP Brigh Shadow Duo in Flamboyant
OCC Lip Tar in Trollop
Canmake Cheek & Cheek Blush in #02

The Loli style:

Neko Mimi & Cutezy Pink Ribbon.
After I took off the ribbon, my hair was in a mess and they are very dry... hahax~

English Ribbon style & Classic side swept behind ears look. (Infact, I do not like to put hair behind ears. It will give the hair a permanent wave or 'S' shape at the sides. I also do not like to show too much of my face and forehead! Maybe I should get a black plastic bag and covers my whole head. HA!~)
Playing with hair pins~

And lastly, the SUA KU (Mountain Tortoise) Duo: "HUUUUUUUHHHHhhhh?? What dat?" *Pouts at cam*


P/S: Journey of Kpop to the West - The 'West' meaning my hair went 'western' Hhahax~ =p~

P.P/S: If any of you willing to sacrifice your hair for such hair dye/ hair cutting workshops, comment or PM me! I'll take note of it, and should there be any in future, I'll find you guys! ^_^ Males acceptable too~

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.

Coloring Seminar by Rodica Hristu (Natural, Cool Browns and Blondes) & a Kpop fangirl-ing...

This is such a long ago post that I should have put up earlier but I'm lazy... =p

17th August I joined the coloring seminar (for Natural, Cool Browns & Blondes) conducted by GoldWell. The seminar was given by Rodica Hristu, an award-winning Canadian Colorist.
I'm very glad that my hair was both washed and coloured by her during the pre-colour session. A very fun experience I must say. ^.^ Its my first time that I got to cover my face with towel when someone washes my hair at the basin! hahax~ Rodica (i kept saying Veronica/ Ronica when I spoke to her. =_=" Opss..) is a very very nice lady, I had alot of fun talking with her and being her hair model. She's very experienced and knows very well the end results she wanted to acheive on each individual model's hair.
I had been fully blonde/yellow/gold headed and long hair-ed almost for few years now, its time for some drastic change! And indeed it was eh. ^.^

Just about 2 weeks before the colouring seminar, my hair was cut short during Daniel Ng's (CD, Kim Robinson)'s workshop. But this time my hair's EVEN shorter! I thought I don't need to cut anymore for this round but... O_O"
Anyhoo, on with the pics!

Rodica & me~ (I look so happy in here!)
