Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not buy! I purchased the dark blond (from the Caramel colors) to cover gray and it turned my roots VIOLET! Terrible!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened??? It has become absolutely horrible! The color that used to be creamy and easy to apply is now a water gel like liquid that is dripping off. I’m furious! Why doesn’t it say on the box that you changed it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5cg - loved every color from this line The only downside is it is liquidy and drippy BUT is a boon with long hair!! My most recent was 5cg which I was attracted to as I wanted a 5 medium brown but didn’t know whether to get cool or golden and this had both and I liked the box color shown. Then I get home and read reviews on this color and the general consensus is it comes out black. I don’t mind black hair so I plowed ahead. I like a soft black -> dark brown (most recent was a level 5 that was dark not medium brown in a dif line). So I knew would turn level 4 or darker. I’m happy to say that I got the EXACT color on the box! Going from medium brown. Lasts well. No complaints. If your hair is short, pour half of each in a coloring bowl and apply with a brush and save unmixed halves for roots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful natural long lasting color This is the perfect shade of blonde for my hair. It is very natural looking and I get compliments all the time. Please don’t ever discontinue this color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful light brown ash color! I have been trying to lighten my brown hair to an ultra light brown. My hair is naturally medium to dark brown. My hair loves to pull red and was having little success with natural and warm shades. So I gave the Sunkissed Caramels Hi Lift Ash Brown shade a try. I was pretty skeptical. This is listed as a hi lift color for virgin dark hair but I took a risk and used it on my color treated hair. The result was a beautiful, very light ash brown hair. I'm amazed it lifted my hair color too because color cannot lift color. My colored treated hair was light brown so maybe that's why. I would not try this if you have darker color treated hair. The roots blended nicely too. The only thing that could be a problem for others who have a lot of red in their hair is that this could still pull some red. Although this gives an ash tone, you can still see some red tones from the lift. Great color! Would highly reccomend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4C Superior Preference 4C is the only color on the market that matches my natural hair color without the brassy orange I get with other colors and brands (even salon). Wish the color was available in semi-permanent for stubborn greys in between treatments. Cannot find a store that will keep the product in stock within 100 miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shade RR-04 Intense dark red- forever rouge I love this shade! My natural hair color is a boring dark brown this color complements my fair cool toned skin. I read a lot of reviews that were stating the color turns out burgundy if you have dark hair. I personally did not have this problem. My natural hair is very dark brown and in the past I’ve colored my hair burgundy and burgundy shades have violet tones. I only got red tones with this shade in my hair no violet whatsoever. This is not a natural shade of red like a Auburn and I love that because it’s so vivid and dramatic. My boyfriend said he loves this color on me better than other colors I’ve used in the past. You cannot beat the price and Quality of this product I also love the conditioning treatment really softens my hair. I couldn’t be happier. Thanx L’Oreal Preference!

What happened to MR5? This was the best red I've ever used! It doesn't fade or turn brassy and the shade was exactly right - not too bold, not to subtle.

Asked by: Bibliojock
I think they probably are discontinued because I can't find anything about them on the L'oreal site. Sally's still carries two colors but they used to carry at least five. However, I finally found MR5 through the W.....com website :) I got three bottles!

I have been using Preference Red Penny hair coloring. Apparently you no longer carry it. What is the closest color to Red Penny or where can I purchase Loreal Preference Red Penny?

Asked by: Big Red 4
The light Intense Copper Mega Reds is a beautiful "copper penny" color!! I mix Mega Red Light Intense Copper (MR1) with Medium Intense Copper (MR3) and this comes out about the right shade for the older version.. Red Penny

is this color the same as Olia brand dark intense alburn?

Asked by: Debra2019
Probably not. I haven't use Olia but the intense is not as intense as it used to be. They are bright nice color and fade incredibly quickly. I've used them for yrs. New formula fades in 3 shampoos (even if you use color safe shampoo). It is a real shame.
