Most of my hair has been dyed black for years. After bleaching a large section of it 4 times the lightest it got was a pale orange. A blend of roughly half Cupcake Pink and half Atomic Pink covered that sickly orange completely and the pink section is VIBRANT pink. Absolutely beautiful. Almost every time I go somewhere someone compliments my hair. Just today I got a compliment at the grocery - it's been about 3 weeks (and 4 nights of ocean tides) and it's still VIBRANT pink. I have not tried Cupcake Pink on its own, but found that Atomic Pink was more of a darker magenta; this blend is, to me, the perfect pink. Not baby pink and not near-red.

Special Effects is the only not-found-in-nature hair color I use; I've used a handful of their colors in the last 2-3 years. Their colors are long lasting (for weird semi-permanent colors, anyway) and don't ruin or otherwise dry out hair. The only time I recolor my hair is when the roots need coloring, not because the color has faded, although to be on the safe side I do pull the color down to the ends. The colors do continue bleeding color for days and days, so keep a "hair dye towel" handy at all times, especially if you have nice sheets or pale towels. Be diligent about wearing rubber gloves lest you have funny-colored hands, too. The Manic Panic I used several years ago doesn't remotely compare for lasting power, and it's such a right pain to color a weird color that having it last awhile is quite important in my book. Fatal Impact packages them well so the colors don't leak out and they ship quickly.

Cupcake does turn a salmon color if your hair is not bleached far enough out and you don't keep reapplying. Bought atomic pink, diluted it and it has much better

Awesome. My friend is a great hair dresser who does crazy awesome color. I wanted a light pink , almost cotton candy pink and she told me to get special effects in cupcake pink. This is a bright pink! She explained to put a small amount of the dye in the mixing bowl and dilute it with a white colored conditioner(any, I used a cheap one). Mix it until i get the color i want my hair in the bowl. She promised that I would have the color in bowl on my hair. My hair is bleached, but still that is hard to believe. But it really works! This is the only brand that I found this to work with, but the color is great. Love this brand now. Best brand of dye for "unnatural" , wild or crazy colors.

Also I found it was cheapest to buy on amazon and and many other places I would need to use her cosmetology license.

It's good. It's pink. It's not hot pink, so don't be deceived by the picture. It's more of a bright, light pink. Almost like a cotton candy. If you want a hot pink color, use the Atomic Pink instead.

I've used this dye to do my bangs/streaks three times. In fact, it's been the same bottle and I've had it for over a year. It still works just as well as the day I got it! I love that!
My hair is an auburn red color, and even though this is a light color, it turned up vibrant and pink on top of my real hair color. My hair is sometimes difficult to dye without bleaching, so I will keep buy Special Effects' products. It stays in my hair better than any other semi-permanent dyes.

I had my hair professionally bleached and dyed a pastel and peachy shade of pink and loved it, but because it was so light it faded to almost blonde after the first wash. Since then I've mixed a little bit of Cupcake Pink into my conditioner and now every time I shower I just leave the diluted dye/conditioner mixture in my hair for a half hour or so and when it's time to wash it out my color is fresh and pretty! It also makes my hair very soft and healthy because of the deep conditioning.

This bottle has lasted me a long time because I have been diluting it so much. Also, because it is diluted each re-dyeing only lasts until the next wash, so it's a bit high maintenance. I'm sure this wouldn't be the case for someone going for the color straight from the bottle.

Something to note on the color is that although it is pink there are a lot of peachy undertones, especially where the bleaching was not as thorough. Again I'm sure this is just a result of the pastel look I'm going for and probably wouldn't be true for those dyeing straight from the bottle. Personally I love this look but if you want a purer pastel pink you would have to look into bleaching almost to white.

This is the longest lasting vibrant dye line I've found, and it makes the hair shiny and conditioned. Doesn't itch while it's on like some others do either. Really does last about 3 weeks washing every day, as opposed to 10-14 days like others.

This is such a beautiful colour! It's very light, but not a pastel pink...it's more of a bubblegum type of pink. I dyed my hair almost three weeks ago, and it's still very vibrant! However, your hair must be a pale blonde for the true colour to show. Some bits of my hair were a little too dark and now they've turned into a salmon pink and in some places a gross looking pink that looks like it has been dipped in soy sauce....
