Best temporary hair color products

I’m loving my bright pink/purple/fuchsia/heck-knows hair but the one downside is that I can’t change the colour as frequently or easily as I would hope. If I were to do it all over again I would stick to blonde hair and use temporary colour products to give me the fix I need. In fact, that’s my advice to you. Don’t bother with permanent hair dye in bright colours …. temporary is the way to go.

I’ve collated the very best temporary hair colourants for you to try. You could even do it this weekend!  Continue Reading

Dip Dyed Hair
Dip Dyed Hair by kimberlynissen featuring a glitter eyeshadow

One booming trend in hair right now is dip dyed colourful locks, and even though it has been building momentum for quite sometime, this is a fad that isn’t going to fade away quickly. For brunette’s it is a trend much harder to get a hold of. Kevin.Murphy have made it easier with the release of their Color.Bug hair pigments and I know they work having personally used it on my own dark brown hair. BUT, I wanted to test if the traditional method of coloured chalk would work because if it did, it would be a big money saver.

Today I am showing you a little test I did comparing Kevin.Murphy Color.Bug to a classic piece of Texta Dustless Chalk. I opted for Pink (hello, my favourite colour). Unfortunately my camera died when I was taking the prep shots so I was forced to do this on my webcam (photography fail) so please forgive me for the less than satisfactory quality. Consider them ‘arty’ photos.  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser

Face cleansers are seen as quite an underrated product in terms of our overall skincare needs, but they’re actually really important. The correct cleanser for your skin should remove dirt, debris and build-up that otherwise gets in the way of your other skincare products delivering their best results. A vast majority of skin issues can be activated simply by using the wrong cleanser. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s essential to not use a face cleanser that is drying or stripping. Hydration is key, and that’s one of the major claims behind the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser.

As I continue my fight against aging and dry skin I’ve tested the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser. Is it worth the price tag? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
