It defininatwly does what it says. I got dark medium brown and it was a little too dark. As I get older i get even more grays and this type of touch up just requires that I use too much. For me, I just don't feel like it's worth buying it so often bc I use so much in one time. It does cover fine though and serve its purpose. It just may be better for someone who has less grays or someone who isn't going to use it often.
