I took the plunge and colored my hair at home. I am thrilled with the outcome. I had been going to salon after salon looking for the color I achieved at home. My hair looked really bad before L'Oreal helped me out. I had an inch of dishwater blonde roots (somewhere b/t level 7-8 natural), 1.5 inches of brass from the last bad color job (at the salon) that did not lift my roots (with 30 …Read more

I love this stuff. I use the Double Wear LIGHT liquid and keep this if I need a touch up. If I do have to touch up, this does not cake and stays on well. Also, it does not look too thick. I also should note that this last forever because it does not take a lot to do the job. I usually just use it in the T zone. This has never caused breakouts, even on my sensitive skin.

This is a review for the Shea Butter in the tin. I wish this was better, but it always goes rancid in no time. I think the packaging may not work to keep it fresh. I wish it was better b/c I like the company effort to provide jobs through this product development. The store has a terrible return policy and will not exchange or refund for a fresh tin. However, I still love their shea butter …Read more

This is a fairly good product, but it does not wear well throughout the day. I love it when I first apply it, but as you wear it, it slides around too much. I have dry skin and it still ended up sliding on me. It is beautiful if it works with your skin type, but not for me. I also have to say that the packaging needs improvement. You can't travel with it very easily and it is in a jar …Read more

This is total garbage. It looks natural when you use it, but does not stay on more than 2 hours. Also, you can use the entire product up in no time. I would not suggest it to anyone.

I wanted to like this, but it just came off looking too thick and fake for me. It dried to a powdery texture and I don't really care for that monochromatic matte look. The color Ceylan was great, just not the texture. I like Estee Lauder Double Wear LIGHT much better and it is way less money.

I love this color. I am fair and it is a perfect highlight or corner color. Also, I like to use it with charcoal brown in the crease and orb on the lid. I would buy this in bulk if it was ever in danger of being discontinued.

I have tried SO many foundations and this surpasses them all! I have actually used two tubes of this and fully intend to purchase more. Let me begin by saying that this is way better than the original Double Wear. It is not nearly as heavy, but stays on just as well. I can use this without having to put powder on top and that eliminates the caked on look. Also, it does NOT break me out …Read more
