Fuchsia Purple Hair | Schwarzkopf Live XXL HD Luminance Hair Dye - Ultra Violet L76 Review

Superdrug £4 RRP £5.49

A few people asked me about my hair colour~ so here it is! ^^


Starting off with the contents, the box contains everything in standard boxed dyes:
- Developer
- Colour Cream
- After Treatment
- Instruction Leaflet
- Gloves


Process:
I first mixed the developer and colour cream together to form the dye in a tub and then applied it to my hair in sections. This dye will stain your hands, so be sure to wear the gloves provided or your own. The gloves provided are the really big, it won't cling onto your hands, so it may provide difficulties to people with small hands during application. One box was enough to cover my medium-long length hair. After 30 minutes, I rinsed out the hair dye and applied the after treatment. The after treatment is average, it wasn't bad but it didn't leave my hair noticeably soft either. 

Results:
The dye does match the colour on the box. But since I have pre-lightened hair, the pink base shows up a lot more than the purple pigments. 


The dye did fade a little after one wash, resulting into a more fuchsia colour. This reminds me of their shade "Pure Purple".

Natural Lighting
Here is the colour in different lightings:


I adore the outcome of the dye, the colour is very pretty and vivid. The pink base makes the colour appear playful and romantic, whilst the purple pigment gives a mysterious vibe. The colour is very eye-catching, you are bound to have someone comment on your hair. As with the HD detail and shine, there is a pretty shine but it fades after 2-3 washes. I can't comment on the "fade resistance" aspect, as my bleached hair doesn't hold colour in well to begin with. 

Rating: 7.5/10

Pros:
  • Beautiful vibrant colour
  • Gives hair colour shine
  • Easy to use
  • Even coverage
Cons:
  • Contains ammonia
  • Gloves are too big
Would I recommend?: If you're looking for a fun colour and "want to stand out from the crowd" as the box states haha, then yes! Affordable and easily accessible from any drugstore. I'm not so sure if they sell these dyes in other countries but in the UK it can be found everywhere.

What hair colour are you currently rocking? Tell me in the comments below~ :')
Thanks for reading, have a great day! ^__^

  4. Ooo I really like the slight ombre it gave you (probably from having pre-lightened hair) :D
    I think it looks really nice on you and i'm surprised this brand/collection isn't as bad as I thought it would be. My friend had to dye his hair black for a job interview so he bought a black dye from that Live collection and it didn't do anything to his hair, not even a tint... it was so weird hahaha
