This was ... okay. The colour was more or less like it was on the package, but it gave me this weird orange tint in some lights, even though the colour was suposed to be light brown. I did get some brassiness even though it promised not too. It didn't do anything horrible to my hair, but didn't do much for it either. Didn't notice that much damage. Will not repurchase because I know there are better at home dyes out there.

Back when I dyed my hair - I used Feria. This was the one OTC color that got compliments from hairdressers. The Espresso came in handy when a hairdresser inadvertently gave me pink highlights (they were supposed to be caramel). I used it as a wash to tone down the bad dye job - worked beautifully without drying my hair too much. I have very dark hair and I found as long as I stayed with darker colors - I would get fantastic results.

Cons: I agree with everyone who says this stuff requires serious ventilation. Feria is also very messy to use - but no more than most haircolor at the time (I quit coloring my hair in 2005).

I wanted a dark cherry black color to cover my last terrible dye job, so I purchased Midnight Ruby (Light Auburn Black). I needed two boxes to fully saturate my long thick hair. My experience:

Pros: Works fast, I hate hair color that takes 45 minutes to process. Love the color! It's shiny and very dark, and you can see the dark cherry color in the sun. Indoors my hair just looks dark, but not fake! Yay!

Cons: Runny and drippy haircolor. This stuff was everywhere when I was done; the floor, the counter, the sink. Be careful! Also, the smell is HORRENDOUS. My eyes were watering so badly when I started on the second box.

The pros outweigh the cons in my opinion! Love it!

I purchased this in Espresso for my shoulder length hair. It actually turned one section of my hair into something that felt like straw. The color is also dull and not shiny. My hair was shiny with L'Oreal's Color Moisture Actif and with Excellence cream, so I was disappointed with this L'Oreal product. I can just wait till this grows out and use lots of conditioner.

i absolutely hated this hair color. i paid about 8 or 9 bucks for it, and i felt that it definitely wasn't worth the price. i tried the color brilliant bordeaux. first of all, i nearly passed out because it smelled so bad. also, i like a thicker hair dye, but this one dripped all over the place. when i was done and washed the color out, it looked all right and didn't feel that bad, but i was expecting much more because i paid so much for it. i think my hair was actually shinier before i dyed it though, and the color didn't stay in my hair that well either, it was pretty much gone in about 2 and a half weeks, even though i don't have problems with most other hair colors staying in my hair. overall, i was very disappointed with this hair color and thought it was a waste of money.

I have used every brand of hair color out there, and Feria is the only one that leaves me with shimmery color. I love the reds, and the blacks. "Brilliant Bordeaux" is my favorite color to use. Of course, after a while this will fade, as with anything. But for healthy shine, I love this color line.

The packaging for the Feria hair dyes is so beautiful, but don't be fooled! The colors fade a lot, and fast. I've used this a few times in a few different shades, and never got results that I liked.

I tried this product twice: once with Crushed Garnet, it left my roots a light red and the rest of my hair a reddish brown, it looked horrible. Then I tried Chocolate Cherry to try and cover the roots and even it out. Looked great for a few days, then my roots faded again to a much lighter color than the rest of my hair. It looked ridiculous and I have never had that problem with diy haircolor. Also, it burned my scalp and made my eyes water because the smell was sooo strong. It did make my hair VERY shiny and metallic looking which was neat but I would not buy this product again because of the inconsistency of the color.

Update -- As I understand usually happens with reds, this faded rather quickly. Six weeks later, I've got what looks like strawberry blond highlights. I did like the look, it just didn't last long.

Like so many others, I'm surprised by the negative reviews. I actually really liked this product. I used Chocolate Cherry and it came out great -- exactly like it's pictured on the box. I found it much less drippy than other hair color products I've used; in fact, this is the first time in a long time that I haven't dripped all over the bathroom.

The "aromatic ampoule" is mostly just a marketing strategy, but it did cut down on the ammonia smell in the product. I got this on sale at CVS for $7.99, so I thought it was a great deal.

Love the color (at first) but don't like how it looks as it fades, and I don't like the condition of my hair when I use it. On me (dark brown hair -- I always dye it a similar dark brown, or a dark red) this faded in a really flat way. So for two weeks it looks great, and then for the rest of the time it looks monochromatic and dull. And the condition of my thin hair would get dry and stiff with this color. Love the colors, don't like the result.
