Revlon Professional Nutri Color Creme 3 in 1 Cocktail (New Formula!)

Revlon Professional's Nutri Color Creme just got even better with a new formula! Enriched with provitamin B5, grapeseed oil and ionic pigments, these color depositing hair masks are specifically formulated to refresh color or create fantasy shades, without damaging the hair. There's 18 shades to choose from, and they are intermixable so you can create any color your heart desires!

Revlon Professional Nutri Color Creme 3 in 1 Cocktail Review Swatches Before After New Formula 1002 931 812 713

As you may know already, I've been using this product for quite a long time now! I bought my first bottle more than 10 years ago! Since then, the Nutri Color Creme masks have been a staple in my hair routine.

This mask is free of ammonia, it nourishes and detangles my hair without weighing it down. I can use it as often as I need, and it doesn't damage my hair. It refreshes color in less than 5 minutes and makes my hair soft and shiny. Love it!

Revlon Professional Nutri Color Creme 3 in 1 Cocktail Review New Formula 1002 1003 931 812

The Nutri Color Creme 3 in 1 Cocktails are extremely pigmented! The shades 1002 White Platinum and 1003 Golden Blonde are very light so they won't stain your hands, but I highly recommend to wear gloves with all the other shades (especially the reds!). Also, be careful because it can stain your shower walls too.

I use them once a week in place of my go-to hair mask, and usually start with a clarifying shampoo to remove all traces of styling products. For best results, gently comb through with a wide tooth comb and leave for at least 3 minutes.

I haven't noticed a huge difference between the old and the new formula, but I have a few colors in both formulas and the shades aren't identical. For example, the shade 411 was a very ashy brown and now it looks a bit warmer on my hair.

Also, I find that the old formula detangles my hair a bit better, but the new formula makes my hair look more shiny.

When my hair is dark brown (level 5) and starts looking a bit dull, I always use the shades 411 Ash Brown or 513 Frosty Brown. The color 411 Ash Brown is a gorgeous deep espresso brown, while the shade 513 Frosty Brown is a beautiful rich brown!

I used to have burgundy hair (level 6), and the shade 500 Purple Red was my favorite to keep the color from fading too fast! I loved 200 Violet too, a darker magenta violet.

The red shades are extremely pigmented, the end result will vary depending on your hair color. They are very bright on blonde hair! If you have dark brown hair (level 5 or darker), it will only add red, copper or violet reflects.

I love the shade 812 Pearly Beige, I have caramel highlights right now and it helps neutralize brassy tones. If I want to completely remove warm tones, I mix it with the shade 002 Lavender.

I'm disappointed with the shade 1002 White Platinum though, the color is very sheer and will only work on a level 10 (platinum).

The range contains an uncolored formula as well (000 Clear), which is ideal for creating pastel colors when mixed with the other shades. I mixed the 000 Clear with 005 Pink to create this beautiful golden pink! (Please note that if you want pastel hair, your hair needs to be a very pale blond)

The shade 700 Green is interesting, you can use it by itself if you want green hair (or mix it with the 000 Clear for a pastel green), or use it to neutralize brassy or red tones (like I did for this before/after!).

  3. Wow. These look great. I love the idea of maintaining your colour longer with a cream at home. I colour my hair red, so it fades pretty fast and this would really help. But the toners look so neat for lighter shades and blondes. I know how brassy or yellow it can turn on people. Plus the whole pastel thing, that is neat to be able to do at home easily.

    1. I don't have the old 500 to compare it with the new 500, I finished my tube a while ago. I tried all the shades in the new formula though, and the shade 500 is very pigmented and gave me great results but I can't remember exactly the color of the old shade. I'm sad to hear that the color is different. They did that with the shade 411 too, the color isn't exactly the same, although the product is still very pigmented.

      Have you tried 200? I know it looks dark on the swatch but when I tried it on copper hair, it gave me a gorgeous cool red with a hint of purple.

      Oh and by the way, if there's 'panthenol' on the ingredient list, it's the new formula.

  6. Great post!

    I too have caramel highlights right now and need to neutralize the brassy tones in my hair.

    If I want to completely remove the warm tones, how much of shade 002 Lavender do I mix with 812 Pearly Beige?

    (Slightly worried of my hair turning purple, that wouldn’t be a good look for me😂)

    Do you have any pictures or tutorials of the this shade combo?

    And would you recommend I buy 002 Lavender over 1002 White Platinum for cancelling warm tones?

    Thanks in advance and thank you for an amazing postal and blog!

    1. Thanks for your kind words! :)

      It depends on how orange/copper your hair is. I would start with only the shade 812 Pearly Beige, it might be enough to neutralize the brassy tones. But if your hair is very orange, you will need the 002 Lavender too!

      I personally use 8 pumps of 812 Pearly Beige and the equivalent of 2 pumps of 002 Lavender (this one is in a tube though, so I always guess the amount of product). I have very long hair though, so you may not need 10 pumps. :)

      Oh and the shade 1002 will do nothing for your hair, it's only good for platinum blonde hair!

  7. Omg THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I've been searching all over the internet for a comparison of the orange/copper tones and for some reason it's nearly impossible to find!

    1. Hi Daniele,

      You're very welcome!! :)

      I think they discontinued the shade 734 though, but if you really need it you can always mix 740 with 300!

      Delete
    2. Yeah, I realized that one was discontinued once I checked their official website. I also noticed that the old formula for 740 was a bright red copper (the bottle said simply "copper"), and the new one is toned down a lot, and was renamed "light copper".
      So I guess that means I'll stick to the 400 lol

      Thanks again! :)

  8. Thank you for writing this article! I have long dark brown curly hair and even tho nutricolor is not supposed to work on virgin hair it does for me by adding depth and shine. I've always used 411 but found after a while it would leave an ashy tone to it. So I started mixing with Deep Chestnut 513 it worked perfectly and added the warmth I wanted. Shopping this week I found out 513 had changed to Frosty Brown 😳. So I went Deep searching found a supplier for the original 513 and thought great ! Then it arrived.. it was Frosty Brown. Arghh ! Without opening it I have no idea if the same colour. Contacted the supplier who apologised and is convinced he does have the original in stock and will look for me on Monday. In the meantime I'm thinking just bite the bullet Rachelle open it have a look and take a chance. Anyhoo thanks to your article I'm reckoning I will happy with the Frosty Brown ( may still get the Deep Chestnut too if there are a few to be had tho) and the info that 411 now has some warmth to it helped even more. So thanks again great review and info, truly appreciate it 😁

  9. Thanks for this post! I just bought the 700 green to neutralize my extremely coppery stained blonde hair (natural level 8-9). The lady at the salon supplier told me to leave it in for "a minute or less" or dilute it in conditioner. I am really afraid now lol! Is it THAT pigmented? I bought 190 blue and 002 lavender as well in case, or at least for my bleached ends which are not currently brassy.

      I wouldn't use the green on blonde hair, this color is better for copper or red hair.

      I would try the 002 Lavender with conditioner, and if you can still see copper tones in your hair, then add a drop of 190 Blue in your 002 Lavender + conditioner mix. Be careful with the shade 190 though!

  11. Hi, I have blond balayage on naturally brown hair, could you please recommend whether I could use either pearly beige or golden blond for a lift? and would I use it all over or just on the blond strands?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Maria,

      The shade 812 Pearly Beige will neutralize warm tones, while the shade 1003 Golden Blond will add a subtle golden tone. Unless your blonde is super light though, 1003 Golden Blond won't show up. By the way these masks only deposit color on the hair, you can't lighten your hair with them. So you can apply the shade 812 all over (if that's the color you want to use) and it will only neutralize your blond balayage, and 1003 will only add a golden tone on your blonde strands (if they are very light to begin with).

      Please let me know if you have any further questions!

      Delete
    2. Thank you so much for your advice! some are lighter than others and I would not mind a golden tone so I think I will go for that, but mainly it is extremely helpful to know that I can apply all over without ruining the balayage effect. Many thanks

  13. Hi, I've only just found this product today, been searching for a better colour depositing shampoo than what I've been using which is limited colour. Do these colours cover white hair? My hair is 98% white as in gray. It does take to other depositing shampoos such as marion. If so I'd like to order one but not sure on 812 or 931 I like natural colours ashes and beige but don't like anything golden or honey. Torn between the 2 as the 812 looks lovely but could make my hair more grey looking, on the other hand if the 931 is very golden that wouldn't be any good either thanks

    1. Hi Evej,

      They aren't supposed to work on natural or white hair, but I heard that some of the shades show up on natural hair. I haven't tried on white hair yet, though. However, even if it did work on white hair, it looks like they don't have the perfect shade for you unfortunately. 812 is very ashy while 931 has a strong yellow undertone.

  17. Hi Kristelle,

    Thank you for this brilliant post. I had ombre hair and had it dyed to my natural shade which is a neutral medium brown. However, to prevent the blonde ends from going green, I think the hairdresser had to add a bit of warmth. This was months ago, and now the dyed blonde ends got lighter and overall my hair looks really warm/brassy which doesn't look good on me. I am after a ashier medium brown. The hairdresser suggested Revlon NCC 411 but I am not sure if it will be too dark for me.

    Do you have any suggestions as to which of the NNC shade would be best to use to achieve medium ash brown?

    Thanks xx

    1. Hi,

      The shade 1002 would do nothing for your hair color, it only works for very light blonde hair.

      The only way to eliminate green would be to bleach the green section, or add a darker brown with red undertones. You can't color your hair lighter with the Nutri Color Creme mask, unfortunately.

  20. Hi I dyed my hair to a burgundy colour but its come down to a copper tone. I've got balayage on dark brown hair. I tried 641 to get back the colour but it just made the copper tone a bit darker. Would you recommend mixing in some fire red 600 for a burgundy tone?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes you can mix it with a small amount of 600, or 500 if you prefer a cool-toned burgundy. I personally prefer a mix of the shades 513 and 600 (or 500) for a burgundy shade, since 641 is quite sheer compared to the other brown colors. It depends if you want a medium and brighter burgundy, or a muted and deeper burgundy!

    1. What is the color of the balayage? If it's a blonde, I would try the shade 812, but if you hair is quite orange it won't be ashy enough. If your hair is a brassy light brown, then I would mix the shades 411 and 812. Unfortunately they don't have a shade between 411 (Ash Brown) and 812 (Pearly Beige) so you would need to buy two shades. You can always try 411 but it would be a very dark brown.

    1. Hi Lorraine! I'm glad you like the post!

      The lavender shade would be a medium blue purple on your hair. If you want a light lavender, I suggest to mix it with your conditioner. Your hair need to be very light though, level 9 should be fine but only if it's not too yellow to begin with, otherwise it will only neutralize the yellow and you will get a beige blonde.

    1. Hi!

      The shade 1003 would be way too light and it only add gold undertones, and the color 931 might not be ashy enough for you. For an ashy blonde, I recommend the shade 812! I would try one part of 812 mixed with one part of your favorite conditioner first, and if it's not ashy or dark enough, then you can apply the color 812 undiluted.

    1. Hi!

      Yes 1003 will help for the ashy parts, but if the ends are very ashy it can turn green. The good news is that ashy hair tends to fade quite fast, so you can try washing your hair with a clarifying shampoo first.

      The shade 812 will darken your hair to a level 8 and neutralize the yellow. Hope that helps!

  29. Hi there. Thank you for such a helpful article. I have very light dyed blonde hair, level 10 I would say. I recently used 812 as I wanted to tone it down to a darker blonde. I almost loved it but it was just a little bit too ashy or dull/flat looking. I usually like a clean blonde colour when its really bright but think maybe I need some warmth or maybe golden tones when it's that little bit darker? I loved the level of "darkness" of 812 but could I maybe mix with 1003 or 931 to help with some depth or warmth I'm looking for (I think !!!) Would you recommend maybe just 931 instead? Really appreciate any advice

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi!

      You're welcome!

      Yes I think 931 would be better for you, although it will be lighter than 812. The problem with 812, is that your hair is already very light and probably doesn't have much gold/warm undertones. So when you use a shade like 812 (with ashy tones) it will look very ashy (which is fine for that ashy trend, not so much for that bright blonde you want!).

      Unfortunately, they don't have a level 8 shade with warmer undertones. I would be careful with mixing the shades 812 and 931, as it can turn slightly green. (gold + ashy undertones = green) You can always try the shade 931 by itself (just wait until the 812 has faded a little), but it might be a bit lighter than you want. If that's the case, I would mix 1 part 931 with 1 part 713.

      Let me know if you have more questions!

    2. Thank you so much for your reply. It was very helpful and exactly what I needed to know. I definitely don't want green hair!! I'm going to try 931 and 713 I think as I definitely do want to tone down the brightness level. Thanks again 😊

  31. Thank you for this shade comparison, very helpful! I was wondering if you could perhaps recommend a shade to tone my hair? My natural hair is a level 6/7 dark ashy blonde. The rest of my hair is currently a brassy copper shade after using a colour remover (I was getting rid of dark reddish brown). I'm planning to do a second colour remover application and then tone my hair so that it kind of matches my virgin hair. Would 812 be enough or should I just bleach my hair first? I wanted to avoid bleaching as it's already very damaged. Thanks in advance! :)

      I'm afraid the shade 812 won't be ashy enough for you. What you need is a mixture of the shades 812 and 411! I'm not sure if it will neutralize all the copper tones, but that's the best you can do with the Nutri Color Creme range.

      The shade 641 has copper undertones with a hint of ashy tones, but really it's mainly a warm light brown. And the shade 513 is darker with rich golden undertones (it's supposed to be ashy, it will help neutralize brassy tones but it's still a golden brown). Does that makes sense? lol I hope it helps.

  33. Thank you for the lovely article, it helped me understand a bit better the shades. I have a question that you can help me with maybe. I bleached my brown hair 2 weeks ago and now I start to get a slight yellow undertone, and want to remove it. Would you recommend 1002 or 1003?

    1. Hi Stella!

      The shade 1003 will add more yellow undertones, so I wouldn't recommend this one.

      I would try the shade 1002 if your hair is very light, or the new shade 1022 (but I haven't tried it yet)!

  34. Hi, I’m a natural mousey light brown and have a high lift tint which always looks a bit brassy to be honest. My roots are awful in lockdown so gave 812 a go and I’m really pleased. Definitely given me a more ashy/beige colour. The only thing I don’t love is that it feels a bit flat, not very shiny. What would you recommend?? Xx

    1. Hi Gemma!

      You can try mixing the shade 812 with your favorite conditioner or hair mask!

  35. Hi I used to use this when j was red years ago. Been a brunette for many years but now trying to go back to a copper/auburn colour. I vaguely remembering applying straight to dry hair. But the instructions say applied to wet towel dried hair. I think I applied it to dry as the colour was more vibrant then. Is this true? So would the 740 be more vibrant if applied to dry hair. Pretty sure I used to leave it on for half hour too ha xx

    1. Hi Betty!

      You can apply it on dry hair (I did it a few times too), but it doesn't work as well if you used silicone-based styling products. You will need more product as well.

      Yes you can leave it for 30 minutes too, no worries! :) I'm not sure if the color will be more vibrant though. Please let me know if you try it!

  36. Well I bit the bullet and applied to dry hair. It's amazing. Very vibrant, however I haven't tried it on wet to see if it's more or less so.

    I used the 740 and it's a bit more red than I was hoping. Could I mix it with another colour to give me a more "ginger" look?

    1. Hi Betty,

      Yes you can mix it with the shade 713! ou 641 if you want something a bit darker. HTH!

    2. Hello me again haha. I was hoping for lighter as opposed to darker. Something along the lights of the 7.40 Olia auburn colour. Would you still recommend the 713 to mix?

    3. Hi Betty!

      Yes I would recommend the shade 713 mixed with 740! Let me know how it turns out!

    4. Hiya! So I finally got round to mixing the 713 and 740. It's a lovely colour but not quite what I was hoping for. A bit to dark and heading to the brown side.

      I'm gonna give the 931 mixed with 740 a go next lol.

  37. Hallo
    Habe sehr hellblonde blondiert Haare.
    Bisher habe ich zu Pflege immer 1002 benutzt.
    Nun war ich mutig und habe eine Mischung aus 400 und 740 aufgetragen. Die Farbe ist zwar schön aber nicht ganz so wie ich es mir wünsche.
    Ich möchte ein natürlich aussehendes helles rot braun.
    Wollte 641 und 740 dafür mischen.
    Was würden Sie mischen um den zu erhalten?

    1. Hi,

      I'm sorry, I don't speak German so I hope you will understand my message.

      Yes I would mix the shades 641 and 740! You can always add a bit of the color 400 if it's too brown for you.

      Let me know how it turns out!

    1. Hi!

      I would try the shade 411, although it seems like it would be too dark, I think you would love it more than the shade 513. If it's not ashy enough, you can always add the shade 002 Lavender. HTH!

  39. Hi Kristelle,

    Thansk for this post, I can't seem to find any other good info on this product! I'm not great at understanding the hair terms, I used to dye my hair quite often either professionally and occasional at-homestuff, but it's all grown out now and I've got my natural light-brown colour with undertones of strawberry/light copper. I wanted to bring out these undertones with the light-copper 740 of this. But I saw you saying it doesn't really work for non-dyed (virgin) hair? Do you think since I have the colour naturally it might help to bring it out? I want to avoid using harsh chemicals and this seems gentle, and that I could control the amount of time.
    I also wondered if this fades with washing so if I hate it it'll fade away within a month or two. So many questions! :)

    1. Hi!

      It can't lighten your natural color, but it can add a subtle color on virgin hair, especially blonde or red hair.

      I would try a mix of the shades 400 and 740, as I think 740 will be too subtle for virgin hair.

      Yes it fades with washing, no worries! Depending on how often you wash your hair, it should be completely gone after 2-3 weeks.

  40. Hi Kristelle! I was wondering of you have a lot of orange tones going on. Can you also use blue mixed with 812 or 411? Also thanks so much for this article and your time.

      Of course! I do this all the time, the shade 002 is awesome for brassy tones! :)

    1. They aren't supposed to work on natural hair, but some of my followers tried it on natural hair and it worked well for them. I would try the shade 740!

  43. Hi kristelle,

    I hope this makes sense!
    My hair is currently Your after 513 shade but I want it to be more of your before 411 shade!
    Would you recommend using the 513 or the 411?
    I’m from the uk and normally use L’Oréal casting cream gloss shade 500 medium brown when I colour my hair but I’m interested in using this Revlon colour Creme in between to make it look less dull!
    Many thanks 😊 x

  44. Hi Kristelle I need your help. I’m naturally a level 5 brunette and recently got blonde highlights/balayage and it’s quite ashy in places. I’d love to go back to brunette with more neutral or golden tones. I dyed my hair brown in the past and it turned green. Could you recommend which colour I could use or could I use this as a filler before using a permanent hair dye ? Thanks for any advice

    1. Hi Claire,

      I would mix the shades 513 and 600 (9 parts 513 and one part 600). You can always try the shade 513 without the red, but it might turn a bit green or ashy.

      I wouldn't use it as a filler though!

  45. Hi Kristelle! I have very light blonde hair and i am thinking about trying red color (maybe 600). Will it completely wash out? Will it just fade or am I going to be orange at some point? How long will it take to wash out? Thanks 😊

    1. Hi Shejla!

      I'm afraid it won't completely wash out, red fades fast but it takes a while to completely wash out, if that makes sense. And yes it will be orange!

  46. Hi Kristelle, I recently dyed my dark Virgin hair with a box dye and It gave me hot roots :( Will the 411 be enough to darken just the roots? Thanks!
