I’ve reviewed many of the L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss colours before, this post is on 7.13 Iced Latte a shade I have used before, but not reviewed.

This post isn’t so much of a review as a before and after and information on how I found the shade. To see more reviews on the L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss shades I’ve tried, then please click here to see the posts.

Here is some information on the L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss 7.13 Iced Latte…

Casting Crème Gloss is a no ammonia hair colourant that gives your hair visible shimmering tones, glossy shine and blends away grey. Give your hair a total beauty treatment with Casting Crème Gloss, for glossy rich, natural-looking colour with visible shimmering tones.


My goal with this shade/tone was too darken my roots and mid-lengths of my hair and also tone some of the orange. With the primary blue tone in the shade it should cool down my hair a little but with the secondary gold still keep it golden and slightly caramel like. I was only using the colour on my roots and midlengths leaving the ends and giving my hair a slightly ombre feel. I have steered clear of permanent colours for a while now (With the exception of my recent hair stripping to remove an awful colour from my hair) and find them less damaging. I’ve really noticed an improved condition with my hair and find the Casting range last well on my hair too.

I applied the colour as per the instructions (Remember to always do a sensitivity test and strand test prior to colouring), left to develop, rinsed and then conditioned. I don’t use the conditioner that comes with the Casting colourant as I find it really dries my hair out and always apply a different one of my own I have here.

I think you can clearly see my hair is less orange and cooler. There is still some warmth there but it is minimal and more subtle. I love how the Casting Creme Gloss colours are multi tonal and not flat, so you are left with more of a natural look. I don’t feel on the image it shoes just how much darker it took my hair, although not as dark as pictured on the box my hair did drop to a cool dark blonde shade which I was more than happy with.

I repeatedly go back to L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss colours, I love how they turn out on my hair. The condition is always really good, I have high gloss shine and my hair seems to love the dyes and make them last a good while.

I purchased my L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss from Boots, it cost £6.79 and is currently part of their 3 for 2 offer. It is also available at Superdrug, some pharmacies and supermarkets.

Lots of Love,
