Just used this product in 30N - Dark Brown. I left it on only 20 minutes, as my hair takes color fast. IT turned out to be a delicious dark brown color, which did completely cover my gray hairs and left it shiny and quite silky. The only drawbacks would be the generic gloves and the small containers of after color conditioner. I will use this again, as I did get the color I wanted and it feels terrific.

After my hair color faded from using L'Oreal Superior Preference Paris Lumiere in Black Sapphire 2BL, I used Revlon ButterCream in Soft Black 11WN. According to haircolor.wikia.com, soft black hair is level 3. The color was a light black without having cool/blue tones to it. I loved the color and my hair did not feel stripped or dry after dying. It took a while for the color to fade (all hair dyes fade after months of shampooing, using heating tools, etc.). Overall, my hair came out a pretty jet black and shiny. I recommend it.

I bought the Light Golden Brown shade. I color my medium brown color hair because I have pesky first grays coming in at 42 years old. I usually go to a salon to have my hair colored, but I've havent had the time to make it to one. I had a coupon for this hair color, did my homework on MUA and saw Revlon Color Silk Hair color was a review favorite. The packaging? Standard for box color. Its fine. Tube of color, developer and conditioner...fine too although I admit I use a bowl and color brush to apply my hair color vs the bottle. The only think I thought was a little sub par was the gloves, come Revlon, can you give us one that has a more substantial feel to them? The ones that came with the kit were so flimsy. The smell of the Hair Color once mixed with the developer was actually nice. Not stinky, although I'm attributing the fact this formulation is ammonia free. The consistency is a little runny, like egg batter. But still very usable. It spread nicely.After using, it covered all my grays nicely. It didn't leave my hair with patchy color spots or weird roots (but I suspect it also has to do with the fact I apply this carefully and slowly-no slapping it on if I want good, even results). The conditioner that came with conditioned my hair nicely, it was 3 butters in it, Shea, Mango and Argan (?).I would definitely buy this again. Now I know why this is a MUA fave and it garners such high praise. It does what it says it claims to do and its a very affordable price. It's a keeper for sure.

Okay, I'll make this short.. my hair went from a soft, full bounce, to a frizzy, dry mess!! I want to cry! I want to cry! I lost about a handful of hair, it just kept falling out as I was washing it out. I'm disgusted, and I am mad at myself for buying it. Do not buy this product!

I'm quite impressed with this box dye. I've been trying to find the perfect light ash brown but haven't been successful til now. I usually buy loreal from Sally's & have been experimenting but haven't had much success. My hair always pulls red which is not near my natural color. I used this with 20vol developer from Sally's. I don't trust box dye developer. Lol. I started from the back, avoiding the roots. Left it for abou 20min, then did my roots & left it for another 20min. It came out exactly like the model on the box. No smells & it came out to about $3 on sale at cvs with a coupon. Definitely using again.

Color used: Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream 50A- Light Ash BrownA little back story:My natural hair is medium to light brown but I have been getting highlights for about a year so my hair was mostly blonde (highlights were bleach with toner). I let my roots grow out and dyed my entire head with a dark blonde shade (not Revlon). Which only covered the highlights temporarily before fading, also made my roots turn slightly red, making them look light red blonde/brown. About the product:Easy to follow instructions, came with the peel off gloves, but I always use my own gloves. Same as traditional hair colors as far as mixing and application. I really enjoyed that the product smelled really good. Didn't have that harsh chemical smell most have. Followed the instructions and left as directed in my hair for 25 minutes. Results:After rinsing my hair out I applied the conditioner provided, but it wasn't enough conditioner for my hair. Luckily I always use two boxes to dye my hair and used both conditioner packets. My initial thought was that the color was a bit darker than the photo on the box, but it is a really beautiful color. I will use the same color again when needed. It left my hair feeling a little dry, but my hair wasn't in the greatest condition to begin with. I would best describe this color as medium/light brown with no hints of red. My previously highlighted hair makes the color look golden in the sunlight and I absolutely love that!

Worst hair dye ever! I got this in 73N which is medium natural blonde. I usually use revlon color silk and decided to try this because I've been bleaching and dying more often I thought with all the good reviews it would be good for my hair. Unfortunately it's no where near medium blonde. It's like grey. Or an ash! I do not pull off cool colors at all. After washing it a bit it might lighten up. But for now it looks awful. Also while dying it's super runny and got everywhere. It also turned my hair red while dying so I guess I should be "lucky" it turned out ash blonde/ gray. Haha. Whatever. Don't buy.

Let me just say "WOW!" You absolutely cannot beat the price of this hair color, especially since the results are so fantastic. I have been coloring my hair for a few years now, after not coloring for over 10 years. Of course in my teens and 20's I bleached my hair platinum blonde, which ruined my hair and I had to get it all cut off and let it grow out. Horrible.After such a bad experience I refused to color my hair for a long time. Which was fine when I had no grays. Ha...we all know that doesn't last. So now, at age 40, I color to cover the grays and I want COMPLETE gray coverage that LASTS.First time I colored again I went to the salon, spent over $100 and got a beautiful brunette color that faded in less than 6 weeks. Then I decided that if I was going to have to color every 6 weeks I would just do it at home. I used a few products that gave good results but then I did a search for the best drugstore hair color and was shocked to see the recommendation of the Colorsilk brand. Frankly I saw the price and could not believe that it wouldn't ruin my hair.So I got ahold of a coupon and decided to take the plunge. This was about 3 months ago. And I was again shocked...in a great way...on how well this product covered my grays and gave me such a beautiful color! I used Medium Golden Brown 43G and I LOVE it. At that time my hair was super long, way past my bra-strap and halfway down my back and 2 boxes of the color covered all my hair well. Fast forward 3 months: I colored again today using the Medium Golden Brown 43G and again, I love it. Only reason I had to recolor was the grow out. This stuff LASTS. And does not fade. And does not smell horrible. I have not had a problem with it drying my hair out either, although my hair is healthy and not damaged. I recently had my hair cut, to about collar bone level, and one box did the trick no problem. My hair feels soft and silky, and the color is a glossy vibrant medium golden brown. Perfect.I highly recommend this color for someone who wants to cover grays with a shade very close to their natural hair color. I'm not sure how well it would work to go beyond 2 shades darker or lighter, but for me it works great and I will definitely use again.Even better...I had a coupon for $3 off and Walgreens put it on sale for $4.99 so I only paid $1.99 for it! BONUS!

I am reviewing shade 81N Light Blonde. Although MUA reviews have been mixed on Revlon's Buttercream line I decided to take a chance because the picture on the box showed a light beige blonde for the light brown hair sample. There is no "Ultra Blonde" in the shade name so I was a little worried I would wind up with light brown hair but it came out very close to the package color. The gloves are better than most kits (although Nutrisse has rubber-type gloves) and I liked that there are even plastic covers for your glasses earpieces. I did leave it on for 45 minutes with a cap after application.The product is not thick but I find that an advantage as I only use it for my roots and never pull down through the rest of my hair. The odor is actually a pleasant floral. I have hair that is mostly gray on top and sides but medium brown in back and at hairline of bangs. One would think this would make for a big problem in obtaining a fairly even color but mostly it does not.....especially with this product. This is the most even color I have ever gotten and grabbed the gray much better than most. Unlike many posters, I found the accompanying conditioner to be adequate but not exceptional.

First, let's note I have been dyeing my hair for about 18 years. I have very straight, fine but very thick hair. I have abused the heck out of my hair at many times...over the years it seems hair dyes have gotten better.Well, I've never been a huge fan of the Colorsilk brand...it was just too drying. The colors are great, the price is right but even in my hair, they have been very drying. My hair is VERY resilient.I decided to try this Buttercream version, since the price is still less than competitors' brands and I hoped the 'buttercream' would indicate it was more moisturizing. Alas...it may be, but only marginally.Generally I use Garnier brand but they were out of my shade; another reason I decided to try this (I purchased a dark golden brown shade).The packaging is great. The gloves are the plastic-peel off kind, but black and it even comes with little plastic slips to put over glasses ear-things (I have no idea what they're called...lol). Mixing was easy...smelled good...application easy and very little dripping.I actually rinsed out about 5 minutes prior to what the box said. And my hair started coming out in clumps. Usually after dyeing, you have some breakage...just par for the course. Generally after conditioning and some quality treatments, it stops.The packet of conditioner that is given--NOT enough. At the time I had a chin-length inverted bob. It was NOT enough to cover my head. Two months later--my hair is still breaking off in clumps. I had to cut my hair into a pixie style (think Jen Lawrence's) hoping to remove some of the damage. It's still breaking off.I believe that if your hair is dry or coarse, you'd be in trouble with this stuff. I have used coconut and olive oils, Pantene, Aveda...a ton of different things to try to strengthen it. It feels soft but it is still breaking quite a bit whereas with other brands--like Garnier--I have found after a couple of weeks of treatments the breaking stops by about 90% or altogether.IF you have very resilient, healthy hair--it's worth a shot maybe for the price. But be very, very careful because I really find this stuff to be drying. If your hair is damaged, please use caution or avoid altogether. Very damaging product.
