I did a second application of Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Nourishing Color Creme (Spiced Plum, Dark Intense Violet) around Christmas time. It was a couple of days (??) right after the first application. The color turned out brighter than the first results. Check out the FIRST results here. So, just picture a richer, more vibrant shade of deep red. I didn’t take pictures of the second time of coloring it (trust me), it looked better than the first. I’m nearing 1 month since I’ve colored my hair. I think I can hold off coloring my hair until the end of the month or early February — whenever I feel like I need some more color to my hair. I can see some growth at the roots, but it’s not bothering me. But…I purchased a new box of hair dye. It’s L’Oreal Paris Feria Power Violet V38 Intense Deep Violet. I bought this thinking that I wanted to try a different brand. I debated between sticking with Garnier or trying something else. Since I already have L’Oreal Paris Power Violet V38 Intense Deep Violet, I’m just going to use it. At the same time, I’m thinking about changing my hair color to another color, lol. I love change. I’m getting bored with my current color too. Hmm, let’s experiment! 😊😊

What am I using on my hair to keep it in shape? Hair Food Coconut Milk & Chai Spice Shampoo & Conditioner. A review coming up soon. 🙂

NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm??

NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm

I purchased NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm about 1 year ago. It looks like the BB Cream is still good for use. It doesn’t have a smell or feel tacky. I decided to give it a go again. Why?? As I was using my elf Flawless Finish Foundation without a primer, the foundation looked dry and accentuated fine lines and wrinkles on my skin. I could see patches of my skin care products (that I applied to my skin, that I let soak in) balling up. That simply means the skin care + foundation was rolling off of my face! Devastating! :'(

What NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm looks like

I realized I still have a BB Cream sitting around untouched. Lo and behold, NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm to the rescue! For some odd reason, it worked this time. I didn’t use it as a BB Cream. I used it as a makeup primer only. The tint to this BB Cream was completely useless. It doesn’t cover anything on the skin, but I didn’t care. I wanted to see if it worked as a primer or not with my new foundation — elf Flawless Finish Foundation.

What I did was follow my morning regimen, let my skin care products soak into my skin, apply NYX BB Cream Beauty Balm, then apply my elf Flawless Finish Foundation. IT WORKED. The foundation looked smooth, natural, and matte. I’ve been doing this for three days straight to see if my skin will react negatively or not. So far, no breakouts and no signs of irritation. My skin looks good. My makeup looks flawless! I love how my makeup looks sooo natural. With the elf Flawless Finish Foundation, the NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm worked.

I’m glad I gave NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm a second chance. I will continue to use it as my primer if it doesn’t break me out. Have you used NYX BB Cream Blemish Balm before? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts!
