I've tried fudge a few times, hoping that maybe different colors would prove better than eachother, but its quite an average product in my opinion. I have tried Blue Velvet, Purple Haze, Pink Moon, Green Envy and Goldfinger.
Blue Velvet was a dusty, bright blue. It didn't last long, it started fading after about a week. It faded into a really gross silvery/blue/green color.
Purple Haze worked quite well. It was a very bright purple and faded into a really nice grey/lilac. I would recommend this for people wanting a lilac kind of look.
Pink Moon was was a bright pink color, it faded into a light pink (as you would assume). It's an okay color to use.
Green Envy was a very bright lime-green. It didnt last very long and faded into a really gross yellow color. I wouldnt recommend it.
Goldfinger didn't really work at all in my hair. I have blonde hair but it looked more yellow than gold/orange. I wouldnt recommend it.
In conclusion, fudge is very average. I have tried MUCH better hair dyes; but if you would like a temporary hair dye, it is pretty good, but it's a bit too expensive I think.

Fudge has to be one of the best hair dyes I have ever used. I have waist length thick hair and I only needed one tube of Corvette Red and my hair is vivid! At only $18 a tube, it's really great! :D I'm very happy with the result.
The only problem I found is that it doesn't come with gloves, but we have some at home so it's not a problem. To the people complaining about its stain-ability, that's the REASON it works. It stains the hair. I will admit that it stained my shower recess and sink, but it's easy to deal with, just smear a white toothpaste over the stain, wait until it dries then scrub off. Easy peasy!
I 100% recommend this dye!

This is a review for colour Raspberry Beret. My hair is a dark blonde shade and I wanted dark pinky purple ends. The product didn't come with gloves which was a let down but i used cling film...which didn't really work; ended up with hot pink hands. I only left it on for about 10 mins and it proper dyed the ends of my hair. The colour is like the hair dye itself. However, it took forever to get out after dying it, had to shampoo it about 5 times to get the water to run clear. Also it stained the floor of my shower so I had to bleach and scrub really hard to get it off. I am pleased with the results just wish it didn't stain so easily.

I love these dyes, they work the best out of what I have tried (admittedly not very many but including Manic Panic). I use Raspberry Beret diluted with conditioner to dye my blonde (platinum) hair pastel baby pink, or sometimes I'll mix Raspberry Beret, Electric Blue and conditioner to make a pastel lilac/lavender. As a pastel they last about a week, I redo every weekend. Good quality dyes for a good price.

I use Fudge Paintbox in the Clockwork Orange shade to boost my pale copper highlights. My highlights look fab when they are first done but after 2 washes the copper starts to fade (as does any red/copper shade unfortunately). The great thing about the Clockwork Orange shade is that unlike many red toners it is more 'orange' based than pinkish red (think Bree from Desperate Housewives).
The product is easy to apply straight from the bottle and 1 bottle usually does me 2 applications. My hair is just below shoulder length. After applying the colour I wrap my hair in a plastic bag and leave it on for 30 mins.
Fudge Paintbox retails for around Ģ7.50 -Ģ10 in the UK.
On the down side I find that I have to reapply this product every 4 or 5 washes as it seems to wash out quickly.

It seems I am always going back to Fudge Paintbox colours when I want to 'rejuvenate' my hair between permanent colours or add in a reflect to my hair. In Australia, the prices varies depending where you go; at most beauty/hair shops it's around $20 and comes in a 75 ml bottle. I find for long hair (mine is almost to my lower back and I'm 5"2) you need almost 2 full bottles. I apply first to roots with a hair-dying brush and then applied all over. Then I cover with a shower cap and blast my hair with a hairdryer on a low setting for 5-10 mins to help the colour develop and leave for around 25-30 mins. *remember to cover bench tops/ yourself well because this dye stains like mad**
The beauty about these colours is you can use a colour alone or you can mix together to get the desired look you want (If you Google "fudge paintbox" you should find a pdf link to a formula guide showing you combinations from pastel colours to 'normal' shades).
A few years back, I had loads of blonde in my natural brunette hair which consequently made my hair more porous/dry. I purchased Raspberry Beret, but was told it wouldn't do anything too drastic to my hair. After application and drying my hair, I discovered to my delight (and parent's horror), that my long hair turned shades magenta pink, being more lighter/intense on the blonde strands. The colour was going strong for 3 weeks, but I was forced to colour over it due to a new job.
Now that my hair is quite dark (almost black), I normally mix Blueberry Hill with Goldfinger, or Blueberry Hill with Raspberry Beret which provides a nice purple/pink glow to my hair in sunlight.
I would recommend trying these colours out for yourself because really, depending on your hair colour and type, they will give you various results. Naturally if you want to go for the colour in the bottle, you need to pre-lighten your hair, but if you want to add sheen or quirkiness to your hair, give it a go.

Not exactly sure if i did something wrong, but this stuff didn't work at all! I put foils in my sisters hair using the Fudge Paint Box in Purple Haze and after waiting 30mins then rinsing - there was no difference at all! We even waited till her hair had completely dried and it looked exactly the same as before! It may be because she had dark hair (with bits of brown from previous dye) but it should have at least had a subtle difference right? If i could, i would give this product no lippies ):

This stuff is great! I used to wear pretty flamingo & the purple shade & it always looked amazing. The colour never lasts as long as I wanted - I remember the purple fading into a blue colour pretty much after 4 washes.
A great set of vibrant colours, love em!

Fudge gets trashed on all the unnatural colour messageboards/groups, but Cherry Bomb
was my go-to red for nearly two years and it always gave fantastic results. I also used a primary blue colour and it worked well and stayed blue while fading instead of turning that horrible silver many blues turn. All the colours I used were super bright, gave uniform coverage despite having a few patches of really damaged hair, and had good staying power. No complaints except for the small tube size.

I have tried loads of different bright coloured dyes and I always come back to fudge. I've used mostly all the colours and they have worked fab! my fave are vendetta red and raspberry beret, which I use to refresh my plum/red hair when it's faded, fudge leaves my hair shiney and virbrant, and when the sun shines on it woaaahhhh amazing colour! I get so many compliments and people asking what I use. I'm surprised other reviewers have said it didn't last long, I find it lasts ages!
I've tried other dyes and they never have the staying power or the shine as fudge does so it's worth every penny!

This gives lovely intense colour (vendetta red) which I use over my casting creme gloss dye when that starts to fade. As this is a semi it is obviously going to fade pretty quickly but if it just hung in there another couple of washes I'd love it. Price is pretty average I think and you do get a lot of product in the bottle. I have just below shoulder length hair and I used about 2/3 of it to coat my hair. When I wash my hair with this on it's like ribena is going down the drain or something haha! A word of warning when they say don't get it on your scalp they mean it. I didn't know how I was supposed to dye my hair without it touching my scalp so ignored that part and oh boy did it stain.
Does it stain pillows? No I didn't find my colour did, but for the first few washes I did notice that some of the dye might transfer to clothes around the collar which was annoying.

I used to get Raspberry Beret put in my hair, and I loved it! It came out a purplish pink in my hair, and it looked awesome with my chocolate brown colour. I eventually coloured it over because I found that it was too hard to maintain, but I miss it so much!

I use 'Cherry Bomb' over my permanent Schwarzkopf red (which usually fades after about two to three washes), but since I have put Fudge's Cherry Bomb over it, my hair is a beautiful, bright shade of cherry red and lasts for about five weeks. It's a little bit expensive for such a small bottle, but I just love the colour and I get complimented on my hair colour all the time. It's a great product!

I wanted to go very red so I bleached my hair first and then put the Red Corvette colour over it. let's just say it was amazing! It was easy to use, didn't smell horrible or drip everywhere, washed out easy and was very very vibrant. I did it a few weeks ago and it is still in, although a little pinker now but very good considering there is no ammonia or peroxide in it. It was a pretty good price, but if you have long or think hair you might need two of them. A good way to do it is to use a tinting brush to apply it, and bleaching first was a way better idea if you want to go super shocking bright. I love it and cant wait to try another fudge colour!

Tried this stuff for the first time last night when I went to the beauty supply and they were out of Manic Panic. I used Pretty Flamingo (love the name!) on my dark blonde hair with no prelightening. I applied it to dry hair even though the package says damp. Put it in foils and hit it with the blowdryer and left for an hour. The color came out SO vibrant! I didn't expect anything so bright without prelightening and the formula was really easy to apply; the tube was great for squezzing into a bowl and it was goopy enough to not drip but not so thick that it was pasty. Good stuff! The price was a little high, but I got it on sale for $12USD. I'll edit when I see the staying power!

I had bleached white blonde hair and I used the hot pink one. I had to put in a lot to get the desired outcome. It also faded very fast and I had to redo it at least once every two weeks.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I tried the blue, red, pink and purple. The only colour that delivered a desirable result was the purple (Raspberry Beret). The other colours were crap!
I have strawberry blonde streaks in my hair which I used these colours on. The red came out a faded red/pink, not bright vibrant red at all. The pink came out a dissapointing wishy-washy pastel pink/peach colour. Not nice at all. The blue was the worst! It was very pale and a very strange bluey grey shade.
I would buy the Raspberry Beret again as the result was a beautiful, vibrant magenta (not sure on lasting time yet though as I only used these today - will update). You also need to be very careful when applying this stuff - as soon as it comes into contact with skin it stains. I got some on my hands, tried to wash it off about 5 seconds later but to no avail! It is only just fading now after numerous scrubs and a shower.

Some of the shades are ok. I have tested the blue, green, black, violet, and red. They only lasted 1-2 days. The violet was black first then pink. The blue and green didnīt work soooo good. you have to bleach it really blonde to get them to work. The red was best. Bleach the hair to a reddish/copper blonde tone. Not white, then it washes away too easy. The red lasted about 5-6 days, yee...but only the first days it was a shocking red. The black is best to tone a dark hair, ore to give it more shine.

I used the purple dye on a few bleached strands of hair and it washed out immediately on the first go - my hair was funny shades of purple/pink/blue/orange/freen. Made it look very punk like... but I was after purple. Second time round [after bleaching my hair a little further] the purple stayed a little longer, but it seems to really not be suited for my hair.

I have tried every brand going and this is probaly the best i have found next to Special Effects.
Now, i have had my hair almost every colour. I have bleached it too many times to recall and i don't mind telling you that i have the most pourus hair going.
Just recently, i have gone towards vibrant reds and nothing would hold. My ususal was Crazy color because i have a Sally's close to me and i was constantly having to buy "Fire" every 2 weeks.
My boyfriend was in Salon Services the other day and bought me "Strawberry fields" and it's gorgeous. Not as fluoro as Fire, which was a neon red and faded to a flamingo pink but this is just what i was looking for. I only wish there was more in the bottle because i have to buy two :(
