Yes you can loose color by using different curves since colors will
be crushed and/or expanded at different positions (following the
curve). So if you want the most optimal image to work with in post
you should do such things in post, not on the camera.

However, if you like the look and don't change colors in post or
can work with the curves the camera handles there is no reason
not to use it. In the end it is all about you, the camera and the
workflow you are working with.
