COLORISTA SEMI-PERMANENT HAIR COLOR REVIEW


YOU all know how much I LOVE to change up my hair colour, and can't commit to one particular shade...so when L'Oreal Paris announce the launch of their new Colorista semi-permanent hair color line I immediately reached for the bleach and waited to get my hands on the product.

Lucky for me the lovely people of at L'Oreal Canada invited me to the official media preview of the their Spring 2017 beauty products (review coming up on the beauty products!) and part of the launch included the new COLORISTA semi-permanent hair color and was gifted about few shades.

What is COLORISTA?

  • semi permament hair color
  • fades in 4-10 washes 
    • washes out faster if you use the L'Oreal fading shampoo
    • use the Colorista hair color remover to remove it all in one step
  • no mixing 
    • unless you want to create your own personalized colour, mix shades or mix with the clear mixer to soften the shade
  • no ammonia
  • 7 shades for bleached hair/blonde
  • 4 shades for brunettes 

My Review:

OK, I love this product! hands down the best semi permanent hair color I have ever used, and if you have been with me for a while you know I have tried probably everything out there. 

This product is so easy to apply, does not stain the skin, leaves the hair shiny, smooth and vibrant. 
The lighter shades do fade quicker than the darker shades, and do not stain your towels or stain your pillow. (this is important! because the other products I have used, they do)

I did mix a few colours to get more of a customized magenta colour. You can mix a few shades together to get the shade that you want to achieve.

The COLORISTA kit comes with a tube of semi-permanent hair color, a coloring brush, 4 sets of plastic gloves and simple to read instructions. 

The fading shampoo works really well if you want to fade out your colour quickly, it removed most of the my colour within 3 washes. It's like a clarifying shampoo and removes the colour effectively but does leave the hair feeling dry and squeaky clean. 

In total I tried out 5 shades of the COLORISTA line and they all delivered amazing results!

Last Friday, I hopped on the Urban Decay party bus from Toronto to Mississauga with fellow makeup artist, beauty bloggers, vloggers and social media influencers to celebrate the opening of the 1st Urban  Decay stand alone store in Ontario.

The square one location is the 2nd Urban Decay store to open in Canada, the 1st opened in Vancouver earlier this year. 

On The Urban Decay party bus we were treated to some bubbly & sweet treats along with great UD host and great conversations with fellow guest.

My 1st impression of the Urban Decay store left me speechless...I mean this store is BEAUTIFUL! The details of the decor, the colour scheme, the makeup stations, the makeup setup and the staff..truly genuine and amazing. 
 
I felt extremely welcomed and the evening had such a great vibe!  the music, the lips cookies, the cosmos, the personalized naked palette station and the amazing UD makeup artist, truly outstanding.
 
The Urban Decay store in now open and is located in square one shopping centre in Mississauga. The store will offer the full Urban Decay cosmetics line plus exclusive products and services. 

 
We were treated to a special gift of our own personalized naked palette! Amazing keep sake from this special night.

Amazing displays of all the iconic products from the Urban Decay Vault.
