I have used L'Oreal ColorSpa for years until it was recently discontinued. I decided to try Natural Instincts as I was looking for a new color. I made the HUGE mistake of not reading these reviews before purchasing Raspberry Creme. The creme formula is a little different to work with, and at first I wasn't sure if I would be able to get all of the color out of the tube, but I did. The color goes on orange, but I know that that's not always indicative of how your hair color will turn out. In this case, it was even worse than expected.
The color was not only incredibly bright, but a very unnatural color. It was bad enough inside my house after I dried it, but then I went outside and my whole family was shocked. I was too once I looked in a mirror. My hair is naturally a medium-dark brown, and I haven't colored it in months because I was looking for a new color/product. Raspberry Creme is a horrible color, and based on my own experience and the other reviews, I can't imagine it will be around for long. The worst part was it was a Sunday evening, and I had no time to correct it before work on Monday. I did wash it immediately which seemed to make no difference. I re-colored with Clove (which is a Medium Ash Brown) on Monday after work, and that has toned it down a bit. If you don't want a very bright, unnatural red, do not buy this color.
