Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream Haircolor Review



I’ll be straight with you, I haven’t had the time in my schedule to cut my hair since September or October of last year. While I desperately need one, the one trick I know that makes people think that I did cut my hair, is to color it. Have you ever done this? I know I can’t be the only one!

Revlon had perfect timing with a Klout Perk I received to try out their new Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream Haircolor. I choose 30N, which is dark brown.

I tried to capture the complexity 0f this polish but my camera skills are lacking. Suffice to say the bar glitter, sparkle and density of Ruby Ribbon is stunning and it definitely looks like a much more expensive polish.  Read more
