✿Sakura Creamy✿ Palty Hairdye Review

Hi everyone! I recently colored my hair since my roots were growing out a lot. I didn't want to go to a salon because money has been tight since I moved out. I decided to go back to the box dyes and just do it myself. I didn't really want any of the colors in the Palty Foam Hairdye line (which I've done a review on, you can see it here and here) so I decided to try the original dye line.
I picked out the color Sakura Creamy. I wanted something less ashy so I figured a warmer color like this would be nice for the summer. I picked these up from a local Pricesmart for about $12-13/box. I needed 4 boxes because my roots were so long and my hair is crazy thick, which surprisingly enough still came up cheaper than if I went to a salon Q__Q (I was quoted something along the lines of $120??? Like whatttt)

Stuff in the box
Here's what my hair looked like before the application
As you can see it's pretty dark. You can barely even see where it's actually colored lol. I don't know why I always wait this long to get my hair done ;^;

Anyways, I applied the dye to my roots and let it sit for about ~45 minutes or so. Then I went over all my hair with the remaining amount of dye and let that sit for ~20 minutes before rinsing everything out. Here are the results!
I was quite surprised at how well the color turned out! As you can see, my hair is much more vibrant and lively than it was in the before pictures. Time for the review!
Coverage/Colour: ♥♥♥♥♥
As always, I am extremely impressed with Palty's color and coverage. It covered my roots flawlessly and revived the color on the rest of my hair.

Packaging: ♥♥♥♥
Gotta love the traditional squeeze bottle that hair dyes come with. Everything was cute, and easy to use. The instructions were in English too!

Price: ♥♥♥♥♥
Super affordable, even though I bought 4 boxes the total was still around ~$50 after tax. If you grab them while they're on sale I think they go for around ~$9-10 a box.

Overall Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
Love love love this product so much! I think I might even prefer this over the foam line because it's a lot less easier to apply with the squeeze bottle (just shake up the product inside and apply!). The color payoff is gorgeous and it's very affordable. I highly recommend you guys check these out. I know they've been out for a while now but if you haven't tried them yet, you really should~ You can find these dyes at any Asian supermarket such as T&T!
Thank you guys so much for reading! I hope you found this informative and helpful <3 Catch you guys later~

[Sponsored] Born Pretty Store - Highlighting Lip Tint Concealer Eye Stick

Hello my dear readers! I'm so sorry for taking so long to update. I had such a busy two weeks as my school term came to an end. I have been looking for another job and I also went to a convention this past weekend to promote my board game, Sweet Sabotage but I'll talk about that more in a separate post~

Today I'll be reviewing a highlighting lip tint concealer eye stick kindly sponsored by Born Pretty Store. Remember you can still use the coupon code CHUH10 for 10% off your purchase from their website!

Excuse my derpy face ;n;
Packaging: ♥♥♥♥♥
I love that this is a twist up stick and not one of those traditional pencil products that require a sharpener. It really makes for an easier time getting the product out. It's also quite small so you can throw it in your purse or pocket and have it with you all day.

Application: ♥♥♥♥
The product itself is very smooth and creamy, however after it is applied it can feel a little greasy. I've only used this as a lip product so I can't comment on how it is as an eye product.

Color: ♥♥♥
The color is very faint and shimmery. I feel like it doesn't really show up too well on my lips, instead it dilutes my natural lip color into a more nudy color.

Overall: ♥♥♥
I'm not in love with this product. I've tried other lip crayons, such as the Revlon ones that perform much better and have a better color payout. I'll try using this as an eye product (perhaps a primer or brightener) and see how things go. I wouldn't recommend this as a lip product though >__<;;
Again I'm really sorry for the delay on this post. I hope you found it informative and helpful. I've got a lot to talk about in my next couple posts so please come back and visit soon!
