Come on, you must have thought it by now.  The nights are drawing in, the leaves are changing colour, you're taking a coat everywhere you go, just in case.  Winter is coming.  And yes, I realise we're only midway into Autumn, but with the current deluge we're experiencing it feels like Winter really is just around the corner.  And whenever the seasons change, women everywhere ask themselves; "Is it time to change my hair colour?"  

Well ever the enablers, the Beauty Crew are shouting back at you; 'yes, do it!'  Never been dark?  There's no better time to do it.  Fancy a splash of colour to brighten your life?  Now is the time!

And it just so happens that we have a trial product to help you change it up!  The Beauty Crew were blown away by this gorgeous new collection, the shades are all to die for, in fact, I think I'm going to take the plunge myself - the question is, will I be dazzling by myself?  Or will you be joining me?

Fiery Topaz Cool Amethyst

The Schwarzkopf Brilliance Gem Collection Range consists of 5 stunning metallic shades - perfectly on trend for this Winter.  Whatever shade you opt for you'll turn heads with glossy hair.  Your hair will indeed be your crown with these gem inspired colours:

  • Fiery Topaz,
  • Cool Amethyst
  • Dark Amethyst
  • Cool Sapphire
  • Dark Ruby

These easy to use, at-home colours are designed with a unique and revolutionary formula, using gemstone extract for a long lasting iridescent colour.  There's also a Diamond Gloss Serum which is mixed into the colour cream to deliver an anti-fading effect for intense longer lasting colour with perfect grey coverage.

Dark Amethyst Cool Sapphire

Copper, ash, purple, blue or red with varying tones of a metalic finish - could this collection be any more perfect?!

Dark Ruby

So are you up for a colour change this winter?  To put your hand up for this trial you'll need to take a quick survey so we can find out a little more about your hair - we'll be picking the trial team from this information.

Their hair colours have always been my favourite these look lovely .... not to sure how much difference I would notice with my hair dark already

I have black hair but would love these colours, particularly the red! I've never died my hair before so would love to see how it turns out, and a dark colour would be a great intermediate since I'm afraid of taking too much of a plunge with light colours.

Ooo yes please! Cool amethyst I would love to trial, currently in process of lightning my hair and would love to put this through as a balyage. Rockin colours for sure x

That dark amethyst looks so mystical! However I have only just recently put an alternative shade in my hair and think that as much as I would be keen that this would make much difference to my current look.

Ohhhh these look stunning! Love the dark amethyst. Am curious also how they would look over dark hair

Dark Ruby looks to die for - would be so up for the challenge. Or cool amethyst! Such gorgeous colours, and Fiery Topas is peaking my interest as well. I've only ever coloured my hair from a dark blonde to golden blonde (what I have now) so this trial would be so fun.

The Dark Ruby looks lovely. My hairs a bit too dark so it would be hard to tell .

I'm keeping the gem tones strictly to home decor - out with the pastel pinks and in with the jewels colours - or so they say is the 2017 trend. Hair stays timeless classic.

I have black hair but I can put that purple in right?! In LOVE!

love the colours! but would they work in dark hair?

These colours look amazing!!

I'm pretty new to getting my hair dyed and I don't think I'm bold enough to go with a permanent dye. I have really dark hair anyways. So I'll leave this to the other members to rock these shiny shades.

My hair is currently washing out to blonde (had semi-permanent colour in). Anyone know how these would work on blonde hair?

I usually go red but I've always wanted purple hair.....

Do the purple, step outside the box you would normally get. Make this a BR new years challenge accepted.
