I used this for the first time yesterday. we were on a really tight budget this week and I couldnt buy what I normally buy (nice and easy 120a) and I couldnt wait one more day to do my hair. I bought the brown black. I am about 70% grey. I am very pleased with this product. It covered my greys as well as the nice and easy. It was a lot easier to rinse out. On first rinse my hair didnt feel stripped or dry. And my scalp isnt itchy at all. I always use my own conditioner every day. and morrocan oil for the shine. the color came out very true to the box. Now im just hoping that the color last for at least 6 Weeks because if it does then im switching to this

I decided to try this product because the price was right and the picture on the box drew me in. I've read that ColorSilk is a great drugstore buy, so I wanted to try it. The "buttercreme" line was especially appealing because of the promised shine factor. I chose shade 20N - Brown Black which is pretty close to my natural color.
I mixed the product in a bowl and did a patch test before proceeding. I had my mom apply the dye with a brush in sections - the formula is a little runny, but it smells great. Make sure to use Vaseline on your hairline and ears so your skin isn't stained.
I left the dye on for 20 minutes after application had been completed. The directions advise to add an extra five if you have gray (which I do).
The conditioner included is very nice and leaves your hair feeling very soft and manageable. No dry or stiff feeling at all.
My results were excellent overall. Total coverage of grays and my hair feels the same texture-wise as before the dye. The Brown Black color is very dark, but it's definitely not in "soft black" territory. It's more like a deep chocolate brown with some nice multi-tonal action going on. Not sure how long the effects will last, but time will tell.

I was very pleased with the results of Revlon Luxurious ColorSilk Buttercream, 42R Medium Auburn. My natural hair color is dark brownish blah with 30% gray. It's quite long and somewhat damaged from years of coloring. Before coloring, I also for the first time pre-treated with Colorful brand Neutral Protein Filler (Sally Beauty Supply, $7 for 4 oz)...I followed the pre-treatment directions; wet down and towel-dried hair, sprayed on 1-2 ounces of protein filler, waited 20 minutes, then blow dried. The coloring kit contains standard contents and directions; I always buy 2 for my long hair. After coloring the roots I applied the 2nd box to the remaining hair...it went on more smoothly and my hair didn't feel as rough or tangle-y as with other brands, though it could have been either the protein filler pre-treatment or the haircolor's 3 butters. The final color result matched the photo on the box and in direct sunlight had very natural color and undertones, without the fake red, orange, or purple I've previously experienced. Once dry it felt fairly hydrated and smooth considering the damage level of my hair, though again it's either the protein filler, the 3 butters, or a combination of both. This product is low-cost, the color/developer smelled less harsh than some brands, was creamy not runny, and the conditioner smelled wonderfully fruity. I would definitely use it again.

For natural looking hair colors, I usually use the normal Revlon Colorsilk but I wanted to try something new. I saw this on the shelf and thought that if I liked Colorsilk, I would like Colorsilk Buttercream. I did not see much of a difference in the dye itself but the conditioner was wonderful. I wish Revlon would sell the conditioner in bottles. My hair was so soft and smelled amazing. The color came out well too.

I've used the regular Revlon ColorSilk many times in the past. Today I used this one for the first time. It was fine, the color turned out fine, but a bit more reddish than I had anticipated and than what was on the box (the color I chose was brown). But, the weird thing is that I actually almost ran out of the coloring solution! I always have the color solution left over no matter what hair-color I'm using, but in this case I pretty much ran out almost before I had covered all of my hair. And I have very fine, thin, not long hair. So I don't know if it would be enough for someone with long, thick hair. I don't know if they're cutting back and putting less stuff in the box. Or if the solution was so thick and creamy that I had unconsciously just used more than I normally do because it was so easy to use more. But for this price, I'm happy with the product and the results. I can't afford $50 salon visits. Not sure if I'll use this again or if will use the regular colorsilk or maybe find something else in the future. I did have some pretty bad experiences with colorsilk in the past, where the color turned out very uneven, striped, and I had to try to get it fixed in salons. But now that I'm choosing colors that are very close to my natural one, I don't notice too many problems.
Edit: I have noticed that my hair has become very brittle. Dry. Straw-like. More prone to breakage. And I see more of it fall out in the shower. So I will not be using this in the future.

My hair was pretty blond. I bought the medium neutral blond 73n of the buttercream which on the box is a shade lighter than my hair. I have no complaints about the actual dye, the smell wasn't bad and it was easy to apply. I used a bowl and brush rather than the bottle it came with. The color it says the dye is on the box is NOT what I got. It shows very blond, my hair came out brown! At least 3 shades darker than it was before I dyed it! I have no idea how this can happen. It seems to have taken evenly, but my roots are bronze. I would definitely not recommend this if you want to be blond. Bad experience.

This works as well for me as the regular Colorsilk (see separate review) = I love it and love the cheap price. I don't know why I stray, but I do very much like the foaming haircolors, so I alternate between these.
This performs just as well as the other, more expensive d/s options I have used over the years: L'Oreal Superior Preference, Clairol Nice & Easy, Clairol Perfect 10, L'Oreal Feria). Very pretty, shiny color that lasts a good 9 weeks on my, covers the few grays I have been fortunate enough to experience :( and doesn't dry out my hair.
Smell - typical for haircolor. Price - A LOT cheaper than anything else. Process - 25 minutes = shiny, fully colored hair w/ multiple tones. I wish the included conditioner was the same as the regular Colorsilk (that one smells heavenly, this one not nearly as much of a pretty smell, but performs great.)
I will and have continued to re-purchase depending on my mood if I want foaming haircolor or cheap. :)

I would have given this a three but it's just so inexpensive and gentle that I had to rate it better than a decent dye that damages hair. My hair went from rapunzel hair to a short bob that I used the dark brown dye to color it with because my natural hair color is so dark people mistake it for black brown and I had a feeling this would pull dark. Maybe it was me leaving the dye on for 40 minutes? I actually did that so the dye would penetrate and dye the strands more because reviews made it seem like because of the butters, it didn't take in the 20 minutes the directions say to leave in your hair. I originally dyed my hair more than a month ago so I think my review to be more helpful than the just-dyed. Unfortunately my hair color fades every time I wash it and I only do once a week and I use gentle and protective products and shampoo as little as I can, often only at the scalp and let it run down my hair. Got a reverse ombre thing going on, a regular guy wouldn't notice it but if a girl got upclose and just stared out of boredom she might notice. It looks black the last couple inches then very dark brown at the roots with some blondies trying to come through but I think only I can see that. I was hoping my hair wouldn't turn out like the box, but if you decide to leave the dye on for twice as long "dark brown" will probably look black at first but fade to a dark brown in time like me. It looks like my natural hair color aside from my bleached blonde locks trying to make an appearance. Overall, this is an inexpensive gentle dye that can be found anywhere but because it's so gentle/the butters I just can't imagine the dye taking after the instructed 20 minutes. I can't say for all shades to go one lighter to get the box color ahead of it because I only experienced dark brown looking black and not fading to anything near the box shade after more than a month. My hair felt no different either. It's still healthy, the dye did not stink at all. I hate dyed black hair so this is a great alternative. You could use a different developer but then it's kinda silly to be using a box dye in the first place. I don't know. Shouldn't judge at all. This has a lot of promise but Revlon needs to tweak it. I'm all for gentle dyes but it doesn't take as well as it could. That's what makes it hard to recommend or want to buy again.
