I used Revlon Colorsilk Luminista in Medium Blonde 175 in October last year and wanted to post the review ASAP, but then I got busy. I bought it in Singapore as it was on sale.
I was extremely excited to use it! Look how gorgeous that color looks! Of course I knew it was going to be darker on me, duh....that's exactly what I was aiming for- a cool dark blonde (Daydreams: I'd curl my hair & look like a doll or like those pretty Korean girls....hmm....)
Wait for it.
It came with the usual stuff: Color, Developer, After-color Conditioner & Gloves
I applied it and.... Good God, my head felt like it had CHILLY PASTE on it. At first, I was in denial and convinced myself it was actually a "cooling sensation" I'm feeling. NOT! It was not. It's like something frickin' spicy was on my head- Curry + Menthol? Salsa?
Me: How is my hair color? [While walking on the street during the day.]
My tactful hubby: Err...Nice. It looks... orange. Nice.
The color looked too brassy especially in the sun. But it did look good only under tube light/blue light, I'll give it that. Obviously I got the color changed at a salon a few weeks later- Loreal Dark Blonde, which is my current hair color & needs to be touched up too.
Below is a comparison with Liese Bubble Hair Color in Chiffon Beige, which I loved.....
L- Liese Chiffon beige, R- Revlon Luminista Medium Blonde
Do you see the obvious difference? Liese Chiffon Beige is a much cooler color and is what Luminista Medium Blonde should also look like AND we can all see which is more shiny & healthy-looking, right?
Conclusion: Luminista is the most disappointing/infuriating at-home hair color I have ever used.
