L'Oreal Preference Wild Ombre colouring kit - A Review

01 August 2013

Hi Petals! It's been a while since my last post and I mean a looonnggg while. My apologies for being MIA but I am back and very happy to be blogging again. I've got TONS to post!!

So let's go jump straight in to my welcome back post!

There's been a lot of changes in my life and my hair just caught up with it. Teehee. For months I've been wanting to ombre my hair but didn't have the courage to do so because it seems so drastic from dark brown to almost blonde hair end bits?  *chicken* So I daydreamed about the idea of it and looked for inspirations online and even found my "ideal" ombre look through Khloe Kardashian hahaha

My mantra was "someday when I have time" until one day I saw L'Oreal Paris posted on their Facebook page about this new product - Link!

Lo and behold - Preference Wild Ombre kit! Here's my "after" photo :) 

**Oh if you're wondering about the lipstick I'm wearing, it's from Revlon Super Lustrous in Pink Velvet and Priceline is currently having a 3 for 2 promo on all Revlon Products - Link!

So what do I think about it?

The Good

  1. I think it's bloody brilliant! It's very easy to use and you have the choice on how "light" you want it to be depending on how long you leave the lightening potion on your hair. But there are about 6 steps to follow and the box got everything you need.
  2. For the price of it, you can't go wrong, it retails from AU$18.95 but you can get it cheaper if you spot a sale in places like Big W or Priceline.
  3. The brush that came with it was the winner for me. It was daunting when I was about to start the process but after a while I was just going cray-cray! 
  4. I love that L'Oreal Paris provided videos on their site to show you the steps in case you didn't like reading perhaps? 
  5. There are 2 shades you can choose from in Australia depending on your base haircolour so you have the option and we love options! Btw I got Ombre No. 2,  for Dark Blonde to Medium Dark Brown because I coloured my hair many moons ago so it's a little lighter than my very dark brown hair.
The Bad
  1. The only thing that I can think of is that this is only available in the supermarket ie Coles and Woolworths, at least where I live so I was on the hunt for it for days! And when I found it they I realised that they only have 2 shades!!! Ombre No. 2 and No. 4 (for really blonde hair) so if you have a dark brown hair or black then you're only option is Ombre No. 2. I'm sure you'll be able to find the one for darker hair on eBay or Amazon or some online stores.
    NOTE: this product is named "Feria Wild Ombre" in US and Canada.
All in all I would rate this as 3.5 out of 5 for the "simplcity". I enjoyed the whole process even though I had my hairdresser friend's number should this experiment failed. I told myself I can always just cut the bit off if I really hate it ;-) 

If you're up for it, go for it!

Just for your reference, here's the video on how-to :)
