Garnier OLIA hair dye - Carmin Reds (6.66) - Review


I tried a lot of color but this is the first time that I'm dyeing my hair in red! I was on my way to buy a normal dark brown dye but I saw this box of Carmin Reds and I just couldn't resist! 




Before:




So I had like a two toned hair style in light blonde/black. I'm only dyeing the blonde part, and I'm supposed to get the same red as on the package.



After:





The color looks better in real life. 
It turned out pretty well, it's actually a deep red with a bit of deep pink undertone.
The thing is on this 'after' picture, I just got my shampoo done so I didn't really had to brush my hair or anything since my hair are really straight naturally.. But I noticed something that happened few days after I have dyed my hair: whenever I have trying to curl/straighten my hair, the color would fade away.



This is few days after when I tried to use the hair straightener.
I only straightened the tips of my hair and they turned into orange!! O_O
THE COLOR CAME OFF DIRECLTY WITH THE STRAIGHTENER.
This is the first time of my life seeing that, considering that I've been dying my hair for 5-6 years.
(So far, it looks like a tie dye so.. ok)





This is 2 months after my coloring, after straightening them various time the orange turned into blonde... (well, since I was blonde from the beginning..)
I also noticed that my hair became a bit dry and a bit damaged. 
I can't help and think that this is because of the dye. :'(
(I cut all my hair 2 years ago so my hair are pretty much.. brand new.) 


Overall: 3/5
- The color is really pretty
- The color doesn't go away after shampooing! The color is pretty tough overall if you forget the straightener incident.
- It smells really good (lol)

- The color probably won't last long on bleached hair from what I understood..
- Avoid using straightner/curler especially when you have bleached hair
- Damage your hair compared to bubble dye!

Otaku Monthly goods #2


This time I ordered a lot of clear files! I couldn't resist because JunJou Romantica is one of my first yaoi and Ojamajou Doremi is probably one of the first manga I know! Plus it's super useful!
(I was in grade 5 when I was watching Ojamajou Doremi and I'm know on my second year in Uni lol)



I also bought two omamori, Haruka = Victory & Rin = Wish fulfillement. 
Tbh, I just want to pair them up, lol. If I'm not wrong Makoto was like luck in studies smth like that but then .. Victory and wish fulfillement are close, right?... hehehe
(there's only.. smth like a sheet of plastic inside.. lol)

And I also got a Gudetama.. but I'm gonna sell that. 



That's all for this month! :D 


Well, I also got a The Scorch Trials tee shirt but it's something I won -> 


It's a tee with the second movie/book picture from The Maze Runner series by James Dashner!
It's a great series so give it a try! Ah, but The Kill Order (prequel) is not that great, you can skip that.

EOS Dolly Eyes in Brown color - REVIEW (Circle Lenses)


I bought those lenses for Shiro (No game no life cosplay), because she kinda has golden eyes so I wanted something yellowish but not too yellow so it would turn strange.

The Dolly Eyes (EOS) collection is very opaque, the color is quite vibrant. The diameter is 15mm.
Make sure you know that before you buy it. It's very suitable for cosplay but not much for a daily life use!






The difference between with/without lens.
Even if it says the diameter is 15mm, I can hadly believe it, the size is not far from a normal eye.






Overall: 4,5/5
I don't know why but I don't find EOS CL very comfortable. I tried them outside of cosplay, despite being on the right side, the lenses keep moving.
And like all EOS lenses, I don't know why but when you're wearing it the first time, you'll keep seeing the color of your lenses.. which is super annoying and uncomfortable. So you better wear them few time and try to adjust your eyes to them before putting them for a long period!

Other than that, as I said, they are super opaque and the color is quite vibrant so it's quite nice for cosplay!

Otaku monthly goods #1


I've been ordering quite a lot amount of goods from Japan. In Europe we barely have official goods, artbooks etc. So every time I see something good or rare, I wouldn't be able to resist!
I rarely show what I bought but I thought I should. lol

Freshly received today from amiami! A 刀剣乱舞 Tarou Tachi kanzashi/pen and Rui Ninomiya's miniature car.


I thought that they would use a real pen and just stuff the decoration on as a cap but they actually only used a ink cartridge so it's super fine so the size is almost like a real kanzashi!! 
I was tempted to also buy the version of Jirou Tachi but.. it's quite expensive (~1500 yen) so I only chose one. 




The car is so well painted, even better than the one on the photo! 
I bought it because I'm planning to cosplay this version of Rui and thought I would maybe use the car as a prop or something. 




That's all for my 'Otaku monthly goods #1' but I'm receiving more next month and next next month...
So look forward it! :D
I swear they're gonna be the end of me! I still haven't got my scholarship so I'm totally broke right now and I'm still putting orders.. Damn myself, lol.

Fruity Summer


How are you spending your holidays? Most of the time the weather is too hot for me to handdle so I just hide myself at home.
I went out with my friend to see "Le Petit Prince" and dressed up because it's such a shame that I have a lot of cute clothes and accessories at home and I'm not using them.






Tank top: Uniqlo
Cardigan: H&M
Skirt: Spinns/RE+
Socks: Claire's
Shoes: Converse All Star
Bag & accessories: Morgan, off brands, jp goods...



I absolutely love my lemon hairties! I broke one of them though, haha. I also have banana hairclip! It's also broken, gotta repair that so I can show you guys next time! ;)

Time sure flies! I have a lot of cosplay projects to do and it's already august! I'm really excited about one of them and I hope I'd totally rock it because it's a gorgeous outfit! But for now, I'm preparing my Hanafuriou series cos!
