[Review] eZn Real Milk Hair Colour Pastel Purple [리뷰] 리얼 밀크 헤어컬러 파스텔 퍼플

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Hi, dreamers! I'm back with a review of another purple hair dye. I previously tried and loved the eZn Shaking Pudding Hair Color in Smoky Lavender which gave me a really pretty result but it unfortunately only lasted a couple of washes before it faded. This time, I'm trying the eZn Real Milk Hair Colour in Pastel Purple. Like the Shaking pudding hair dye, this dye comes in a lot of natural colors as well as a decent selection of vivid and pastel colors. The packaging is super cute too! Even the bottle and tube look really cute and fit the milk theme really well.

     

Based on the color chart at the side of the box, this hair dye will supposedly dye both virgin hair and bleached hair to a quite strong purple color. Most hair dyes that I've tried usually only stick to either my bleached hair or my roots - it never gets dyed equally. So I'm pretty excited that this hair color seems to dye both bleached/dyed hair and un-dyed hair.


This dye includes 1 tube of color cream, 1 bottle of dyeing agent, 1 plastic 'gown' to cover yourself and your clothes, 1 pair of gloves, a bonding hair pack, and of course, instructions. The instructions are really easy to follow even if you can't read korean, because of the clear and simple illustrations for each step. In any case, I'll explain the dyeing process briefly anyway.

First of all, be careful not to get any of the hair dye on your floor or furniture, because it will most likely stain. Prepare by covering your clothes with the plastic gown and put on your gloves. Make sure your hair is dry before starting the application.

Tip! The best time to dye your hair is when it's dirty/oily. If you wash your hair right before dyeing it, you're removing the natural oils from you hair which protects it, and by removing all the natural oils your hair will also become squeaky clean and 'slippery' which means that the hair dye won't stick to your hair as well as on dirty hair. However, be sure that you don't have any hair products in your hair, such as serum, leave-in conditioner, hair spray etc. If you do, just wash your hair and wait a few days before dyeing. But, if you really can't wait to dye your hair, just brush your hair thoroughly to remove any excess hair product.  

When I was all set, I started applying the hair dye at the back of my head and worked my way up as the instructions suggested. After covering my roots I started applying it to the rest of my hair and then combed it through carefully. I let it sit for a little more than 30 minutes. I then rinsed it thoroughly with lukewarm water and applied the conditioner which I let sit for about 5 minutes before I rinsed everything out. Here is the result!

     

Here's the video of me dyeing my hair with this hair dye, where you can see the before and after more clearly.



Unfortunately, yet again it didn't dye the ends of my hair into a purple color, but rather a (really pretty) grey color. I guess the ends of my hair are just totally messed up, haha. However, the result is really gorgeous! I basically now have deep purple roots and grey ends. The result it gave me is actually quite similar to the eZn Shaking Pudding Hair Color in Smoky Lavender, except that this dye gives a more strong and deep purple color. I will definitely keep using this color. The only reason I choose this one over the Pudding Hair Dye is that it gives a stronger color which means that it'll probably last a bit longer.

In any case, I actually really like the ombre look I ended up with, but I might try to touch up my ends with my Directions Hair dye in Violet which usually only sticks to my bleached hair and not my roots. We will see! In any case I will make an update about the result on here.

Thank you so much for reading. Let me know what you think! Bye for now, dreamers~



Caramel Macchiato ♡ Eye Makeup

Sunday, May 21, 2017

Hello, dreamers! I'm back with yet another video on my Youtube Channel! Crazy, right? I can't believe that I've actually been uploading videos kind of regularly. My goal is to upload 1-2 videos every single week! Let's see if I can keep it up, hah. Check out the video below and let me know what you think! (I kind of messed up the eyeliner at the end, whoops! Everyone makes mistakes~)


Anyway, I'm sorry for not posting any actual blog posts here on my blog. I'm actually working on a bunch of blog posts, but as you can see, I've been focusing on my Youtube Channel these days. I hope you understand! I'm still kind of new to making videos, so it really takes up a lot of my time and energy. In any case, I'll try to start managing both my blog and my Youtube Channel at the same time, as soon possible!

Thank you so much for reading/watching. Bye for now, dreamers ♡

Studying Korean at an Academy!

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Hello, dreamers! I'm really sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I have my reasons. First of all, my ring light broke (again), and I finally got a new one so I can start taking pictures and create posts and videos again. I can't wait!

Second of all, I've started to study Korean at an Korean Language Academy in Seoul. The Academy's name is literally just Seoul Korean Language Academy and they have 2 campuses, 1 in Gangnam, which is the one I go to, and 1 in Jongno. I've been living in Korea for almost 2 years now and I can't believe that I haven't studied korean at an academy up until now.



When choosing a school, I simply made a search on Google and that particular Academy was one of the many results I found.  The reason I chose this academy was simply because it looked really nice and the price was more reasonable compared to other schools. The staff and teachers are also really nice! I went to the school to register in person and take my level test right on the spot. I got into class 1C which is a bit above beginner level. I'm really happy with the level I got because at this point I can understand everything that is said in Korean but I still learn a lot of new things. Like I said, I understand Korean well, but my weak points are speaking and grammar (actually building sentences etc.), which is something we are focusing on right now, so this class is perfect for me. The books we are using right now are in the picture on the left!

My class is really small (3-4 people), but I don't mind at all. I actually think it's nice to be in a small class since the teacher can help us out more with our questions and focus on the things we need to learn as individuals.

After my first class, I felt that I really needed a notebook and some markers, so I went ahead and got myself this super cute Korilakkuma notebook at Dream Depot. The pencil case is from H&M and the pens are from Artbox. I love them!

In any case, I'm studying really hard right now, but I will definitely start blogging and making videos again. So stay tuned here on my blog and my Youtube channel! I'm also focusing on updating my Instagram more frequently. My last picture was a throwback selfie after my first day of school, so make sure to check that out as well.

Thank you so much for reading! Bye for now~
