Colour Wow Red Root Touch Palette


It’s not the first time I’ve worked with root touch powders and palettes and the Colour Wow red root touch palette has definitely worked in my favour in-between colouring my hair.

Product Details:  Colour Wow Root Cover Up in Red  c/o


The great thing about this is the fact it’s water resistant, this meaning it won’t come out when in contact with rain! However you can always shampoo it out when you need to. I’ve used powders in the past that cover my roots and I find these work great but don’t last as long as this powder. It doesn’t make my hair oily or greasy and blends nicely with my natural hair that you wouldn’t even notice this powder after application. The red shade is brand new to the range and I’m so happy they brought it out as I always find it hard finding red toned powders that match perfectly with my hair. It’s a matte powder with a variety of pigments and reflective properties.


The pressed mineral powder makes this easy to apply with the applicator brush and doesn’t make a mess compared to other loose powder formulas I’ve used in the past. I couldn’t get a good picture using this on my roots but can definitely recommend these palettes to anyone that wants a semi-permanent root touch up between dying your hair that can be washed out. The pigmentation is fantastic and easy to build up the coverage, depending on how dark or light the red tones in your hair are! My hair is pretty dark so I normally apply this until it matches perfectly with my hair.


This little palette has won over 30 industry awards from the likes of Pure Beauty, Glamour Beauty and Harper’s Bazaar. It’s also perfect for covering grey hairs if you’re at that stage in life and want it to appear less noticeable to blend in with your natural hair. I like how the packaging provides a mirror for on the go top ups and I find it so handy for doing outfit photos if I haven’t had time to re-colour my hair that month. I normally colour my hair every 6-7 weeks now but my hair grows really fast so my roots start to appear within 3-4 weeks after colouring and that’s where this comes in handy.


I can see why the price point of this powder is so expensive compared to other brands I’ve tried as it’s got a unique formula that won’t wash out even if your swimming, making it perfect for travelling with on holiday. It also contains reflective particles that adheres to the natural colour of your hair and blend effortlessly. I’ll definitely be sticking to this from now on and find it much easier to use by the way it’s designed, and you can also use the powder for lots of different things from eye shadow to filling in your brows.


What’s your thoughts on this? Do you use root cover up powders?
