Spa Sister’s Microfiber Hair Towel($12.00) purports to quickly absorb moisture from the hair. It’s supposed to reduce the amount of time you’ll spend blow drying your hair. The towel is a big bigger than a regular hand towel (the “medium” sized towel – bigger than a wash cloth, smaller than a bath towel), and it is incredibly lightweight and feels quite thin. I imagine it’s the microfiber that keeps it so featherweight. I have long, thick hair, so I’m always on the lookout for anything that minimizes my drying time, so I jumped on this product when I heard about it.
On Wednesday, I thought I might play around with some bold lip colors, so I popped on a neutral look, and then I had some fun. I tried Bing! mattene from Cult of Cherry, as well as So Scarlet (but I already had an idea of how that’d turn out in a look). I also tried on Clinique’s Red-y to Wear. Now, the verdict? Neither Bing nor Red-y to Wear are for me. I just can’t see where I’d wear Bing out to, without lightening it some. Red-y to Wear is too much of an orangey red on me – reminds me of clown red, almost.
