Feb/05/2014

DISCONTINUED, discontinued... The third holy grail product in a week I have found that is discontinued. (YSL Golden Glosses, L'Oreal EverCreme cleansing conditioner). Vintage has not been available in stores for some time. With digging I found that the entire gloss line has been replaced. I acted quick and found that Lorac's website is selling these at discount for only $10 a gloss …Read more

These glosses are being phased out effective immediately, my YSL representative confirmed this today. So stock up before they remove their supplies. I found the last one in number 51 Golden Shell. It's a beige gloss that is multi-faceted with rainbow glitter and is perfect over nude lipstick. I love the sleek YSL packaging, the scent and the even fact that it's made with real gold …Read more

I'm normally a high-end makeup buyer, especially with lip products. However I was intrigued by the comparisons to YSL glossy stains and the reviews (not to mention the swatches) looked promising.
I bought the Orange shade, Mandarin and the Nude shade. The glosses come with a phenomenal doe applicator that feels like a baby bunny is nuzzling your lips every time you use it. It's …

This review is for women who use black dye and are allergic or think they may be to PPD. Skip to the bottom for the review otherwise.

I have very dark brown hair that I dye black (roots, only) every two weeks with a demi dye. Then a semi-permanent dye is used all through my hair every week. It's a lot of upkeep and I'm always looking for different dyes that promise jet black …

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - HiColor High Lift Hair Color

Feb/07/2012

As a kitchen beautician I have coloured my fair ever colour in the book. My hair is naturally black but I used this when going a dark fire engine red. I woulda use the Magenta colour on my roots then Provana red (FANTASTIC product-non damaging) or Manic Panic Vampire or Pillar box red for refreshing. So the only damage I had was from using 30 volume high lift on the new growth. I plan on going …Read more

Jan/18/2012

Update!!!-It appears this product is being either reformulated or DISCONTINUED! I decided to pick up a bottle as I haven't used this in some time. I saw the review from yesterday stating that it was on clearance at Walgreens for next to nothing which is never a good sign. I visited every local Walgreens and I couldn't find a bottle- in fact where the bottles used to be they already …Read more

I did not want to commit so I bought the 1.7 once travel size from Ulta that retails for 9$. I'm certain it will last many months and is travel safe. Packaging is cute-you know exactly how much is left. The scent is light and fresh. Maybe a olive oil/cucumber-y scent.it's not my usual but I like it. Now the gloss factor- for a lightweight shine spray it sprays evenly and is glossing on …Read more

Aug/23/2011

UPDATE: I decided to give this product a go again whilst waiting on my usual colour to come in. This time I made a critical decision; I chose to not use the clear gloss at all. The results were phenomenal! This time I used the darkest black colour equal parts with
The low volume developer. Roots were effectively covered and fair had a great shine. I'm positive that adding the clear …
