Mimic Hair color touch up

Started 1261015353 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1261362172 by SilentDance
Has anyone tried this? Most reviews are good, but I would like the opinions of those on this board.
Yay or Nay?
TIA

I haven't heard of this one. I'd be interested in knowing more about it too.

Silent Dance,
I use Mimic to cover up grays inbetween visits to my hairdresser.Ya know the hugh thick grey hair that's first and letting everyone it's there, usually right in the middle of my part. It's easy and I am happy with the results.

Thanks for the reply.
I bought the colormark from here a while back and I'm happy with it, but I thought I'd give something else a try. I watched the video for this and thought application was fairly easy. The colormark is good for a few grays, but I've been getting a lot of grays lately and need wider coverage. I'm not ready to color my hair because I want to change the color, but I'm not sure what other color I want just yet.
I think I will give this a try.

I ordered the dark brown to contrast with my highlighted hair. Hope it works, if not it goes back.

I prefer my old standby, Roux Tween Time Hair Color Stick, easier and faster to apply, better color match for me too. Also, Roux is about one third the price too.

I wonder how this compares to the Joan Rivers Powder?

I use Joan Rivers for my hair and Mimic is great on my eyebrows and doesn't come off. Sometimes I use Dalton first, then Mimic only cause I have to get rid of the Dalton. I love Dalton but the colors don't match the taupe is too light and the next color is way too dark. the mimic medium brown is great.

OVER 60: SKIN - menopausal, dry, not sensitive, few eye wrinkles, mouth to chin (puppet) lines.

Shel, I've never seen it in blonde. Is there a blonde shade?

Jud, I dont think so, I think Lt Brown is the lightest shade, and it is not very light, I use either that one or Auburn, Shel

I use my favorite: Toppick. I mix the light brown with medium brown and it creates the perfect shade to cover up my thin spots on my scalp!

I got the Mimic from Hsn some months ago, even if the Joan River's powder is excellent for my receding temples.I had to send the Mimic back because it was too dry,but the brushes were good.

Thank you all for your responses. I just needed it to cover greys, but the greys are multiplying so I thought it might be easier with a product such as Mimic.
Well, I got to thinking how I liked the ColorMark I ordered from the Q and that I should stick with it. It looks like the Q no longer carries it, so I googled it and an Avon product came up. It gets great reviews!
For $20.00 at Avon I got two grey root cover ups black and brunette, Volumizing shampoo and conditioner and 2 containers of Anti Frizz Capsules. I've never tried any of these products but the price was right--all the above for the price of the Mimic.
I'll let you know how it works out.
Thanks again.
:)

I have both the Mimic and colormark.
The mimic is ok, but I find I have to push really hard in the color to get it on the brush. Seems like it's getting hard of something but it takes to much time to keep digging into the
color.
The color mark is much faster, but $$.
may have to try some of the other recs here for idea's.

I just washed my hair and used the Mimic on my really grey roots, and I am sticking to my original post, I really like the Roux Tween Time Stick much better. Like the poster before me just said, Mimic is harder to apply and takes a lot more time.

I'm now glad I didn't order it. If the Avon products don't work out they only totaled $6.99 so not a huge lost.
I wonder why the Q no longer sells the colormark. I thought it was a good product.
