Every time I consider hair chalking, I totally chicken out. My hair is so dry lately than I’m afraid it would break right off. I am absolutely not afraid to play with color & this trend looks so gorgeous…but I don’t want my hair to literally snap. In comes Anastasia with a win! These are very similar to the hair chalk type trend BUT they are way more pigmented, can be used on brows, & they AREN’T drying at all!
From the Anastasia site description:
Wipe on, wash out color. Instant Gratification. Get an intense flash of color without dyeing, bleaching, or spending hours in the salon.
Apply to brows with an angled brush or rub the powder onto the tips of your hair or streak it for outrageously fabulous looks that wash out with ease. Set with hair spray when applying to hair or Brow Gel when applying to the brows.
INTENSE color without dyeing or bleaching.
Works on all hair colors.
Most shades perfect for hair and brows.
I applied some of my leave-in conditioner to my hair to give the colors a little something something to stick to then I sealed it with a bit of a light hold hairspray. This is crazy messy but totally worth it if you love bright locks! I don’t know HOW they did it but these covered every strand I wanted to cover! Perfectly!
Mega Watt Green: My first shade I tried & it is a gorgeous lime green! Gorgeous & so pigmented!
Electric Blue: This is a brightly pigmented true blue. I was afraid this was going to be lighter on but nope!
In the Pink: I love this pink although it isn’t quite as hot as I was expecting. Still absolutely glorious! Note that this shade isn’t intended to be used around your eyes so use at your own risk!
Teal Tornado: This is love. So pigmented, so teal, so perfect. My absolute favorite.
Ulta Violet: This one definitely isn’t as bright as the other shades but it is still purple! I found this one a bit more difficult on my brows because it wasn’t quite as pigmented. If you love me you know I love purple so that was a bummer but Teal Tornado totally made up for it!
Let’s check out each shade on my hair shall we? Bright time ahead ya’ll! Anastasia rocked my world!
Cleanup in between helped cut down on the mess a bit, I used this baby wipe in between each color. I still ended up with a stained hand but after washing it a bit more with a bit of hand sanitizer (for the alcohol) I was good.
I did this fun eye look as well…which…omigosh I wish I could rock this everyday! I set my brows with Anastasia Lash Genius so they didn’t budge a bit. Note I added the pink to the outter corner because this is the only one that isn’t intended for use around the eye…so thus the location of application. I know a lot of people have issues with pinks so I’m thinking that is why?
Even if you just want to use these for your brows for makeup looks, these are a bargain! For one thing, they’re huge! These have 2.1 grams each for only $12.50. Are they messy? Yes. But they are so totally worth it! The pigmentation alone has me weak in the knees!
You can pick these up on the Anastasia website & I also saw these at ULTA last night…with TESTERS! Get on that! Perfect way to see if you’re digging this trend before they’re all snatched up!
