Review: Revlon Colorsilk in Shade 57 Lightest Golden Brown

I'm a person who's not new to the concept of hair coloring. I did it quite a few times for the past 4 years. I've always been safe with my color choices. I always picked colors that are of brown descent. This year, however, I've been wanting to lighten my hair visibly but I've never been able to do so. I tried getting Palty's Marshmallow Ash but that turned out to be just another ordinary shade of brown.

As I was strolling around Watsons, I saw this particular shade and was interested on how this color would turn out once applied on my hair. Initially, I wanted to get Syoss's Light Ash Blonde color but I chickened out since I was afraid it would lighten my hair too much. Hence, I got this 'almost' blonde color on the shelf.

A few days before my birthday, I tried it out and I loved it! It was the perfect golden brown shade. It has lightened my hair color visibly and has brightened my skin tone. Here's a before and after video that shows how this particular hair dye worked on my previously dyed (but naturally dark brown) hair:

In addition to the things I love about this hair dye is the after color conditioner. It made my hair super soft, straight and shiny!

On the other hand, after a few weeks, the color faded and turned into a medium brown shade, a bit similar to my previous hair color. So I guess if you're looking for a long lasting hair dye, I wouldn't recommend this brand. But if you just want a change for a short period of time, this may be the one for you.

Feature: Pony's Beauty Diary

You know you've been too busy with other things when you have a beauty blog and you don't even know that Pony has already uploaded makeup videos instead of her usual picture tutorial. I know I've been busy with work and all that but never did I imagine that I would be so much behind on all things that are Kbeauty related.I'm on vacation leave right now which allows me to surf the net all I want. I was up late last night when I stumbled upon Pony's makeup videos. It was really fun to watch. All the videos are HD with tutorials and tips regarding skin care, makeup, etc. You might want to check out some of her videos so here's some of them... Enjoy!
