Root Makeup

*I was sent these products to reviews, all opinions expressed are 100% my own.*

Mineral makeup is something I am just starting to work with. I have recently started using and I am love it over liquid foundation. I find it gives a better look and more coverage over liquid foundation. Krista from Root sent me a package full of amazing goodies to try out for a review. Root is based out of the U.S.A. and many of their products and supplies are made in the U.S.A. 

I was given the opportunity to test out the Bronze Mineral Powder, the Setting Silk and the Pearl Powder Mineral Foundation. I was also sent a few different shades of the foundation to try out to see which worked the best for me. I had Krista help me pick out my shades as I am not the best at picking my shade out. All you do if you need help is shoot a image of your face over and she can help you out! 

The best color for me was #3, the Fair to Light Warm Pearl Powder. It is not to dark and not to light. I like for my makeup to look natural and this didn't give me a too white look or a too dark look. It was perfect for my skin tone and really blended well. Another thing I really like about this company is they send this great product cards that come with instructions on how to use the products. If it was not for these cards I would have had to e-mail Krista or called someone because I had no idea what Setting Silk was until now. 

The Setting Silk was great. It gives your foundation a nice smudge resistant barrier and it extends the life of your foundation. I find with liquid foundation I am reapplying it by the end of the day, but with Root I did not have to re apply it at all. I really have enjoyed using this product and fund the sifter actually works great.

Now before with mineral makeup I never used the right type of brush. I always just bough whatever I saw at the store. I consulted with a friend and was told to get a kabuki type brush. You can also get the pretty blender which Root carries both. 

I am excited about this company and plan to order more from them. They just started carrying eye shadows and I am looking at quite a few of them. My bank account will not be thanking me for this. Make sure you check them out. They are well worth it and such a great company. If you have any questions, make sure you e-mail Krista, she is great to work with.


  1. Haha I hope that "friend's advice" helped:) Great review!!!

  2. I love mineral makeup and have never heard of this company! I'll check them out!

  3. Sounds like they have some great products! I am actually looking for an alternative to foundation, so I might have to give this a try!
