They call it a chalk but it's really a liquid which makes for quite a different application experience compared to the traditional chalks that I've tried before. They recommend applying it with a sponge but I found that more of the colour ended up in the sponge then on my hair so instead I held a piece of paper towel under the section of hair I was colouring, poured the colour directly on my hair and then used the paper towel to spread the colour over the whole section - it was a little messy but worked better then the sponge. My only caution, don't wear a good shirt to do it you are going to get a bit messy!
I gave the Coral Sunset shade a try but with my dark auburn hair it probably wasn't the best choice, it really didn't show except in certain lights - something more dramatic like blue or green would have had more impact. If you have light hair though you can pretty much take your pick of shades - it's all going to show!
Once the weekend is over and you have to go back to work au naturel or are ready to change shades, it's gone in a couple of shampoos - and while it is there, you don't have to worry about it rubbing off on your pillowcase at night or flaking off your hair - it really is colour without any fuss or commitment!
