Sometimes...

I have moments when I am not sure about things. I am always battling with my hair, I am NEVER happy with it. When it's dark I want it light, when it's light I want it dark, when it's straight I want it curly... Get the idea?

I recently dyed it a light ash brown all over and here's what it looks like. I have some old highlights trying to creep through. Today, I have decided I hate my hair dead straight, and the colour needs to be either lighter or darker... Ideas are welcome!


And sometimes I have moments when I am sure. I love pink lips and I can trust it to look good all the time. I love "Ambre Rose" color sensational lipstick by Maybelline, it's a pale pink with a slight gold pearl, I wear it quite often on it's own but love topping it off with a pink lipgloss.


Maybelline Ambre Rose lipstick + Mac Cruise Control lipglass.


You can see the slight gold reflects creeping through the pink..


I shall do a post soon about my favourite pink lipsticks, promise!

What's your favourite pink lipstick?

Muhsine I love your hair colour. How did u manage to get it that light? Im thinking about getting it lighter in turkey as I dont know any good hairdressers around here.

raspcherry said...

One of my fave pink lipsticks is by MAC ltd ed called strayin from the hello kitty collection -lurves it!

Muhsine said...

@Tugba Not much, I used Belle colours permanent hair dye in light ash brown, it always lightens my hair, I used to use it when I was younger. My hair actually lightens really easily... I'm sure they would do a good job in turkey as they understand our hair... but they tend to do whatever they like :)

Your hair looks beautiful, as well as that lip combo. I feel the same way too about my hair at the moment; I want to have it cut, but the next minute I want to grow it long. I want to have it straightened again, but I want to keep it curled too. I want to dye my hair a lighter colour, at the same time I want to keep it black! Sounds really crazy, but I'm happy I'm not the only one :)

Nikki said...

Im exactly the same! Where colour is concerned anyway.. I don't have the option for straight OR curly (not without help anyway!)

I tend to dye my hair with L'Oreal Ash Blonde.. Then I end up thinking it needs to be lighter, then when it is lighter I want it darker! I get bored of the upkeep (ie having to apply fake tan all the time to avoid looking washed out!).. Then I go darker and like it for a little while, then end up wishing Id not messed with it, or had gone just a bit darker rather than full on dark brown!
I guess Im just never happy and deep down have no idea what really suits me! lol

For what its worth I think you look more sunkissed/Summery lighter, but more exotic darker :)

MW said...

I love ambre rose -been searching forever for it here -and its always out !!!
xx mw

Rubinha said...

Angel by MAC :)

HOATSY said...

Ohhh your hair is a gorgeous colour, looks nice and sunkissed : ) I'm thinking of going lighter for the summer. I've always been too scared to try it myself at home but now i've seen your hair i'm thinking twice.. Did you use only the ash brown or one of those pre lightener thingy's first ?? Pamela xxx

felmake1 said...

I feel the exact same way! I think I'm going to dye it caramel-light-brown, a in-between color on the ligter side :)

Hollywood said...

I think you hair color is GORGEOUS but I totally understand the mood I am the same I totally HATE my hair at the moment too =s

And I ADore ANgel by MAC.

Tali said...

You are exactly like me... i never am 100% happy with my hair and i wish it wasnt straight. Id kill for some waves! :( Mine never last when i plait my hair.
Lighter or darker im sure youll look fab.. although it is tempting to say go rich mid brown so that you can wear sparkly gold accessories!! hehe

Tugba said...

Muhsine :D I am now soooo tempted to go and get that colour to give it a try :D Just worried it wont work on my hair and I will ruin it :( But it looks sooo nice on your hair. Im busy with exams at the moment but after that I will have a look for the colour :D

Scoutess said...

Plumful by Mac - it really makes my blue eyes POP! Their lipsticks are fabulous.

prettyaspeaches said...

You hair always looks beautiful! My fav pink lippie is Dior in 664. Gorgeous!

Muhsine said...

Love reading your comments, you girls are the best!

@Nikky and Livia wow I never knew most of you felt the same way, don't even get me started on the length of my hair :), currently I hate everything about it. Ughh! Watch this space, god knows what i will do next :) xx

@Hoatsey no I dyed it staright up, no pre lightening. x

@Tali omg don't tempt me, I love dark hair!! xx

@Tugba when you first dye it it's not as light, it looks kind of a medium brown, but after a few washes it gets lighter and when you use heat that speeds the lightening process up, it should work on any hair, but don't quote me! Good luck X

Diana said...

o is Ambre rose part of the Maybelline color sensational collection?? I need this lol I'm a sucker for pink lipsticks.

Muhsine said...

@Diana yes it is xx

Sara said...

Hey doll! I adore you with medium to dark hair, I think it compliments your skintone very well. I think you good with lighter hair too but Ive always personally been a fan of darker hair, especially with olive skin! Just looks gorgeous! As far as styling goes, you look wonderful 3with both straight and curly. I think its nice to be able to switch up with those two options, I wouldn't want to just stick with just one. Pinks def. fit you well too!

I hope you can find something that works for you and that you just adore!

Keeley Laura said...

Wow! I love the hair colour :)
I think you should get some highlights in dark and light so your hairs all different shades of that brown :) x

Get Gawjus! said...

Go darker Mushine you will look gorgeous :)

Muhsine said...

@Sara thanks honey :)

@Keeley Laura sounds nice!

@Get gawjus oooo don't tempt me.. x

Cheryl♥ said...

I'm always unsure about a lot of things... lol. Loving the lip combo!

Andi said...

Ok, first of all, you're nuts! haha.
Your hair is completely stunning--all the time, no matter what! It looks amazing in that picture! The color, the straightness, everything about it.

And you look great in any color!

glamour rouge said...

tackyblueeyeshadow said...

Your hair looks fab and it's a lovely colour. I love the lip combo too! :)

Veronika said...

that gloss is gorgeous and i love your hair! I think your haircolor is just perfect :)

WillWorkForMakeup said...

My favorite pink lipstick is MAC Angel. It always looks good regardless of what my eye makeup looks like!

I love that lip combo on you, by the way =)

I think you should dye your hair a deep chocolate brown! I really think it would look amazing with your skintone!

tina_mbc said...

Ah, aren't we all a little hair-indecisive...?
Although I love the exact shade your hair is atm and the fact that the old highlights are peeking through (looks SO natural), you could perhaps go a tone darker...? I mean, with summer round the corner, it's bound to get just a tad lighter anyways...

I think you're pretty either way, with dark or lighter hair. I personally like light ash brown hair, but because of my Asian genes, when I lift my dark brown hair, I end up with yucky brassy hair color. I've only achieved light brown/sandy blonde hair once, but the upkeep was too expensive and my hair was so damaged by the end, I decided it's best for my hair and wallet to stay au naturale. Good luck with finding the happy medium! :)

Richa said...

I normally hate my hair flat. I like for it to have some volume. So i blow dry and then straighten out on lighter heat and bigger chunks when the blow drying doesn't do the job. I think your hair color is great. I'm trying to go that light. But I'm doing it slowly. Don't want extreme hair damage.

chrystyna said...
