3 stars :/

I love the lay out of this app! It’s so cute & love the cute color scheme. However, I’m bummed because I have been using the Colorista app for like 3 years now (which is ok) but I have SO many old formulas I would have to switch over to the new app. I’m not sure how I could actually achieve this because right now it’s looking like WAY WAY too much work to input manually for all of my clients photos & old formulas to refer back to. Also if I were to somehow decide to actually re input ALL of my clients formulas- there is no option to change the date of the formula (at least I can’t find the option) so right now I am bummed because the app is so clean looking & cute but I’m not sure how to transition :(

Hey! You can edit the date of any formula once you saved it by simply tapping on the date at the top of that formula page.

Also, there's no way to automatically import from another app without working directly with that company or if they release a tool that allows it.

Thanks for reaching out! Let us know if you have any other questions or feedback at


Not enough options

While this app is certainly more convenient than keeping paper client cards there are basically zero options. The only thing you can change is the reminder notification to enter formulas. You can’t change whether clients are listed by first name or last name, you’re unable to input home addresses and one a formula has been put in you can’t go back & fix a typo without erasing the formula to where the typo is & starting over from there. All of which in my opinion is really dumb, especially when it costs $3.99/month just to be able to use the app. It should be free or a one time fee to buy the app.

Thanks for your feedback! We're currently working on a feature where you can add notes such as a client's home address and more. Stay tuned for a new release in the next month or two and shoot us an email at if you have any more ideas.

*1/28/18 Update: We've added a new Client Notes Feature where you can save additional info for each client like their home address, prices, and more. Also, we've made formula editing easier, so you can tap anywhere in a formula to edit what you need. Simply update your app to try it out!

This app has been working great for me so far. Has everything I need and is actually enjoyable to use. I would highly recommend to any colorist! I would especially recommend for any color assistant working with multiple stylists. It makes it so easy to keep track of formulas throughout the day and share them with other colorists or assistants when needed. Also the reminders to enter formulas is incredibly helpful especially when doing 1000 different things at once!
I LOVE Gloss ❤️
