What I think: This is such a luxurious kit! You open it up and all of the products are nestled inside. Purchasing a drugstore kit does not get you the barrier cream, wipe, cap and two pairs of gloves! And I use all of those things. After coloring, my skin has not been stained and I am good to go!
The color itself has a very light odor, which is good. It is easy to mix and apply. The color I received for review was Bolzano Brown – 4NMG. Dark mahogany brown with hints of gold. It was pretty, but I didn’t really see mahogany or gold, just a deep, dark brown. And it lasted a few weeks, but I can see the gray at my temples again. I left it on for a little longer than it suggested, too because my gray are stubborn.
I think this is a very nice kit, if a little spendy. Maybe it’s best for those who do not need to cover a lot of gray.
