My Latest Obsession: Magenta Hair Mascara

Every once in a while I get the uncontrollable urge to do something crazy with my hair.    Because I also like to look professional at times (oh the woes of being a journalist!), I cannot permanently color my hair bright purple, no matter how much I want to.

That's where Claudia Steven's Hair Highlighter comes in.  It comes in oodles of colors (black, bronze, mocha, gold, blue, and of course my personal fave, magenta).  As a side note, my lovely friend Nicole over at Glossy Gurl opted for the cobalt blue hue and it looks absolutely fab on her.

Now I have to say that the actual product looks much more pink than the picture leads you to believe.  It's a true magenta and somehow looks great with my newly dyed red locks.  Here's a picture with some of the magenta mixed in:

It's a little difficult to see the full effect in the picture, but you can get the basic idea. I like to do only a few highlights on the top of my head and then do multiple strands of "peek-a-boo" highlights underneath so it looks as natural as magenta hair can possibly look.

The only "downside" that I've found so far is that it's a little tricky to wash out.  I put a ton of the stuff in my hair for a night out and it took about three washings for it to completely disappear.  That's not really a bad thing, and I still consider it a temporary look.

What do you ladies think?

The best part is that you can get a tube of the hair mascara for under $5.  I'm definitely going to stock up on a few of the other colors (the gold color is def on my list!)
