|Kevin Murphy Color Bug in Pink|
Here are the beauty details (finally!) that I promised you after this outfit post, um...last week. (Sorry it took so long!) Despite the touches of gold in my outfit that day, I was worried the look read an eensy bit drab, so I decided to punch things up with this cool product I had been meaning to test out for some time. It's the Kevin Murphy Color Bug (shown above; sold in salons--find one that carries it here) and it allows you to draw on instant, temporary colored streaks in colors like pink, orange, and purple. How it works: The palm-size Bug is kind of like a pot of super pigmented eyeshadow. You glide it down a section of dry hair and it immediately leaves behind the ultra-bright color. Then, when you brush through, the shade gets toned down quite a bit and you're left with a pretty, muted, watercolor effect that's more Lauren-Conrad subtle, than Lady-Gaga crazy.
A few notes: The color definitely shows up better on lighter hair (so light brown, blond, or highlights)--I have ombre color, so it worked great on my ends and looked really cool. It easily washes out when you wash your hair, though I found that it fades a lot before the next day anyway. (They say it lasts longer if you add hairspray on top--I'll try that next time.) It's a really fun way to experiment with bright colors with zero commitment. I'm hooked. Should I try purple next?
Tell me: If you could have brightly-colored highlights (or even allover color!) for just one day, which shade would you go for?
