Your Thoughts Please!

I have wanted an Alexander McQueen skull scarf for a long time and have finally decided to bite the bullet and buy one. I am having such a difficult time decided what color to get....theres just too many choices. Here is the website with all the choices, Alexander McQueen Classics . This is a big purchase so I am taking my time deciding. But I think I have it narrowed down to these: 

Graphite on Grey

Aubergine on Lilac

Dark Beige on Beige

Grey on Dark Purple

Does anyone own one of these? What color would you get? Feel free to offer your opinions...

My Current Top 3 Mascaras

Buxom Lash mascara has always been my Go To since it came out a few years ago.  I find it really separates the lashes and gives great definition.  I haven’t been able to find another that I like as much but being a beauty product junkie I still like to try other mascaras.
During a trip to Sephora I found two mascaras that were recently released and I couldn’t decide between the two of them so I bought both!
FairyDrops Scandal Queen Mascara describes it as a volumizing, water- and sweat-resistant mascara with a brush so unique it is patented in Japan.  This do-it-all mascara is blended with fiber to give you lush, doll-like lashes. The unique brush catches even the tiniest lashes, defines, lengthens, and provides all-day curl.
The mascara does tend to clump on the brush so I take the brush out of the tube at an angle to remove the excess. It adds tons of length and gives a false lash effect…plus I love the design on the tube.

UltraFlesh Panthera Mascara

I was expecting this mascara to be really dramatic considering that the tube looks like a panther but I find it’s a very wearable daytime formula. It gave my lashes a very soft, feathery, fanned out look.  It seems buildable as applying extra coats could make it more striking.
I really like the brush which has short plastic bristles. One row of bristles is about twice the size of the others and can be used as a comb.
The description on Sephora’s website describes it as a volumizing, super-defining, and long-wearing Ultraflesh mascara gives the term "cat eye" new meaning. Formulated with a blend of natural waxes, it maintains the lashes' soft, pliable feel while keeping lashes conditioned and promoting healthy growth.

Revlon CustomEyes Mascara

I usually don’t have much luck with drugstore mascaras (which is a bit unfortunate for my wallet!). This new mascara by Revlon was a pleasant surprise! The cap has a dial on it giving you two options, either definition or drama (volume). Turning the dial moves rows of short bristles changing their position and offering more definition as opposed to volume.
What new mascaras have you tried recently?

Time for a Change!

Hey gals!  I am thinking about changing my hair color. Right now my hair is a pale neutral blonde shade and I am thinking of dying it light brown with a reddish tone. I've always used L'oreal Preference ....

...But I am wondering what everyone else uses.  Has anyone tried the new foam hair colors that seem to be popping up everywhere?  Thoughts and reviews would be greatly appreciated!
