If you’re a regular Mrs Tink reader you will quite often see me checking in to the Colorpop Salon in Maroochydore and getting glamourfied (yes, it’s a word). They take on the task of transforming me from a tired mummy to a glam goddess (unsure about the goddess part but it did sound good). On most occasions, I arrive looking like an extra from Chopper in trackies, havaianas, braless and in a singlet. It’s a super comfy, classy look. On arrival I’m always greeted by a super happy and calm Nikki and an equally gorgeous and calm Rikki both of these women don invisible capes and take me from drab to fab.
One of my favourite reasons for visiting Colorpop despite the obvious one (removal of the dragged through a hedge backwards look) is the atmosphere in the salon which is always fabulous and gets you in the mood for the event that awaits you. Colorpop has become part of my ritual before any special event and one I always look forward to.
Recently I attended the Wishlist Spring Carnival Event (remember all the selfie spam?) and as soon as I chose my outfit (or should I say outfits after a dose of overeating required a quick change) and my headwear my next stop was making an appointment with the glam squad aka Nikki & Rikki.
On the day of the event I was beaming with excitement thinking about the day that lay ahead. I stationed myself in Nikki’s makeup chair awaiting my transformation from drab to fab and as usual Nikki did not disappoint. Nikki thinks about every detail, she asks questions and takes into account all aspects of your event. The lighting, the weather and the length of time the event will go for she cleverly does all this to ensure your make up will last as long as you do (or in my case longer than I can!) and to date she’s not let me down.
My makeup is always flawless and always lasts. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better though she introduced me to a fabulous product called Lipsence. Lipsence is an incredible lip colour that not only stays on its quite literally will not budge. This lip colour does not move… At all! Unlike many other on the market that promise to do the same this one actually does! I double kissed cheeks nonstop, I drank like a fish (a champagne guzzling fish) and I partied like a rock star for over 12 hours and my lipstick still remained intact. Nikki applied my lip colour in layers at 8.30am and gave me a Lipsence clear gloss to touch up the shine throughout the day and at 10pm that night I was ready for bed but my lips were ready for disco!
Impressed with my new Angelina Jolie lips I moved onto Rikki who gave me a hair consultation and then styled my hair around my rather large headpiece. Rikki has a creative vision and never fails to amaze me and what she can do with my knotty mane. This is a lady who knows her stuff and her speed in which she works her magic is always impressive and for someone as time poor as myself I really value how quickly she achieves fabulosity (another word from Mrs Tink’s dictionary).
And just like Lipsence my updo had incredible staying power. Plus, the day after the event (after I had taking all the bobby pins out) I was left with lovely soft bouncy curls and not stiff hard hairspray hair. Rikki like Nikki will be my first guilty pleasure I will be inviting to live with me full time, should I ever win the lotto.
