  • Is there a lighter, more cool toned option? I used to buy this in 'fair' and it was perfect for my summer colour, and manageable with my winter pale. The last time I ran out, I noticed that the only options were 'light' and 'medium'

    Are there any lighter colors than light? I just got my box today. And the light color is still way to dark for me. I loved the colors you used to have. 

    Asked by: Sriley
    They made a fair shade that worked wonders for all the women in my family but for some reason they quit making it.

    Just received mine and consistency is very odd. Very watery. Shook bottle but still come out watery with pigment seeming to be separate from the liquid. Is this how it is meant to be?

    Asked by: Wendy100
    Hi Wendy100, We're so sorry to hear about your experience and want to help! Occasionally during shipment, a product may sit for too long in one position so we agree shaking the bottle well should alleviate any issues. We also suggest storing this and any product in a dark, cool place. If you have any additional concerns, please please feel free to contact our Customer Care team (calling 888.795.4747 M - Thurs 9a – 9p EST, Fri 9a – 6p EST) and they will be happy to assist you! Thank You!
