Foundations -Manic Panic -Dreamtone Flawless Foundation & Color Corrector - Virgin (White)

on 5/30/2018 7:32:00 AM


One of the more affordable white foundations available to use as a mixer for us pale people. Contains oil (jojoba I think?) which is lightweight and non-comedogenic, so it mixes well with most silicone and oil-containing formulations. It isn't great for oil-free foundations though.

This is a pure white as opposed to off-white shade - no subtle pink or blue undertones here, meaning all undertones of skin can use it quite happily. Only a small amount is needed to blend into your foundation of choice and lighten it. I didn't find that it made a noticeable difference to the finish of my foundations using an approximate ratio of 1 part this to 3 parts flesh toned foundation.

If I compare this to other white foundations I've used, it fares very well - it is leagues better than the commonly available Stargazer white foundation (which I strongly recommend you avoid), and is a thicker consistency than the NYX white mixer. This is a more neutral tone than the Body Shop Lightening Drops, which is a very pale pink off-white colour - so it may fit you a little better if you have warmer undertones than the Body Shop's offering. Retailing for around £12 direct from Manic Panic, and cheaper on Amazon/Ebay etc. it's far more accessible than Illamasqua's white skin base and MAC's white face&body make-up.

All in all it's a good, relatively inexpensive option for those of you that find the lightest shade in foundation ranges are often too dark for you.

Hair Color -Manic Panic -Temporary Hair dye

I literally showered for the FIRST TIME with purple haze in. AND IT ALL CAME OUT!

Lipstick -Manic Panic -Lethal Lipstick - All Colors

on 3/20/2018 9:27:00 PM


These are some of the best alternative lipsticks that I've found. I have and love Daughter of Darkness, Black Rose, and Glamourrose. They are all consistently creamy with a nice sheen and decent pigmentation. No Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers issues here, they perform like a quality lipstick. The brand has real street cred, it's been around since the heydey of the punk era. This is not another Kendo brand.

Hair -Manic Panic -Virgin Snow Toner


I have level 3-ish natural hair that I bleach to about 10/11 - toning a couple of times with T18 and Blondme Ice to get MOST of the yellow/orange tinge out that is lingering from some color I don't remember, then I use MP Virgin Snow and sleep in it, in a plastic cap and it will take the rest of the yellow/orange right out. I love it.

Hair Color -Manic Panic -Cotton Candy Pink

on 1/5/2018 11:30:00 AM


Packaging sucks... would have been great if they made the opening of the jar big enough to fit a standard hair dye brush. rather then having to transfer into a different bowl.

The color was pretty and made a nice rose gold on my dirty blonde hair but it lasted for one week!!!!!! I wash my hair twice a week and was very surprised to find that this didn't not last through two washes.... very disappointed with the lasting power, I feel like this dye is overrated. And also over priced.... Maybe this isnt true for the darker dyes but as far as cotton candy goes, It was pretty short lived.
