Today I have a review of some Root Pretty products I picked up recently. My skin has really been acting up along my jawline and cheeks. I wanted a mineral foundation that I could use not only to set my concealer in those areas but to add a bit of coverage while doing so.
I emailed Root Pretty with a photo of myself so that they could shade match me. I am so glad I did! While looking at all of the shades of the Root Pretty Pearl Powder Foundation online (neutral, cool, warm and golden) I was extremely overwhelmed! I was leaning towards a neutral shade but I had no idea where to go from there. Hillary recommended I try G 3.5. I picked up G 3.0, G 3.5 and G 4.0.
I was absolutely shocked with how well this matched my skin tone! G 3.5 is the perfect shade for me but I can get away with G 3.0. I was really worried this would enhance my dry areas but it really doesn’t. This has a subtle sheen which just makes you look healthy. Not too glowy but not flat. Really, really flattering. I NEVER thought I would like mineral foundations but I must say, I am seriously impressed.
Hillary also suggest I try their primer, Pretty Booster in Lightly Medium. The sample is a generous size which allows for quite a few applications to see if you like it. I do like this, it provides a bit of coverage and evens out the skin tone ever so slightly before foundation application.
Top to Bottom: Under Eye Brightener, Pretty Booster in Lightly Medium
I also picked up a sample of the Hello Pretty Under Eye Brightener. This is EXTREMELY light. It’s very brightening and definitely knocks out any discoloration. I am still playing with this and trying to find the best way to set this. My under eyes have been very dry lately so I’m having a bit of trouble with all of my under eye concealers. Maybe I need to start using some eye cream…
Overall: The winner out of this haul is definitely the foundations. I am absolutely blown away. Root Pretty has a really wonderful, comprehensive color selection. Hillary was so sweet in helping me to choose a shade and I am so glad I reached out to her for help.
