L'Oreal Magic Retouch Brown 75ml
I received this product free to test - but my review is totally honest and my own thoughts. First of all application of it is pretty easy, you just spray it on but do it lightly and I found doing it from a distance is easier to get a more even coverage. For me the colour wasn't quite right, I have very light ash brown hair - think mousey! And this is a little too brown for my hair, I would need to use one shade lighter I think to get a better match. This is so perfect for when you have the pesky roots showing (grey in my case) and need to be somewhere where you have to look good. A good product just need to increase the colour range slightly.

A brilliant little quick fix when you've no time to dye your hair!
I've seen a lot of negative reviews about Magic Retouch, but I used it (as part of a BuzzAgent trial) for my grey hairs showing though under my fringe and across my main roots and it worked a treat! Managed to spray a bit on my ear which washed off fine with some cotton wool. The colour blended in well with my medium brown hair colour too. It's a quick fix product so washes out as soon as you wash your hair, but if you've got a night out planned and haven't had time to dye your hair properly, this is a brilliant little product.#GotItFree #MagicRetouch

Only a Quick-Fix
Ok I have used this product only twice but even so I wouldn't recommend it.
In my case I've been using it to cover my first few grey strands which have been coming through (eek), and although the product gives decent coverage colour-wise, it made my hair clump together, sticky and grubby feeling and difficult to brush through. The first time I used it, admittedly I may have used too much as the spray is quite strong and easy to over-use, however I was much more careful on the second go but still found the same result, albeit to a lesser degree. At one point my partner approached me while I was sitting on the sofa and went to affectionately touch the top of my head, where on doing so he recoiled and said 'ergh, have you got something in your hair?', not a great feeling.
So I'd say for a quick-fix to cover any roots/greys on a night out etc where you dont want the photos to reflect their existance, or if you know you're getting your hair re-done the same or next day, its worth a go, but in no way would I say this is worth getting if you want a long term solution, or if your date is likely to run their fingers through your hair.
