Shimmer to COLOR.BUG Line

KEVIN.MURPHY introduces COLOR.BUG in new Shimmer hue, giving locks instantaneous golden bronze highlights with temporary hair color. Shimmer joins existing shades Pink, Purple, Orange, White, and Neon, which can be swiped onto hair for quick color application, then easily washed out.

“SHIMMER.BUG is an exciting new addition to the COLOR.BUG line,” explains Kevin Murphy, stylist and founder of KEVIN.MURPHY. “The golden bronze hue yields multi-dimensional highlights without the commitment of permanent color. From the outer coppery metallic packaging to the inner bronze pressed powder, everything about this new product shouts glam and glitz. For golden highlights on dark hair, or to add radiance to lighter or red tones, SHIMMER.BUG is quick and convenient. Simply wipe on, then wash out!”

To get the shimmer look, first apply product to hair; for more intense color, prep hair with a thicker paste product like UN.DRESSED, and for a lighter shade, use a spray like HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY. “Make sure your clothing is covered, and then use the color pad to rub powder onto completely dried hair,” adds Murphy. “Massage the product into your hair, shaking out any excess, to ensure that the color is spread evenly and no longer loose. Then shimmer the night away!”

SHIMMER.BUG is meant for onetime use and washes out with shampoo. Results will vary depending on hair color. For very blonde or chemically-dehydrated hair, use a deep conditioner before applying.

  1. Looks like fun! I see that there are other colors too! Great way to add splashes of color without the commitment!

    1. This product is very fun for editorial looks! I've seen them used for a few youth-oriented fashion shows, a surf wear line and even for the teen scene. Very cool stuff!
