I cannot decide if this is genius or ridiculous! I’m right at the point of wondering whether I should not conceal any stray greys anymore – I don’t have many but they’re irritatingly patchy rather than evenly shot through my hair (how annoying is it that any form of ageing can be so randomly uneven… ). So even though this product sample clearly isn’t my shade, I do at least, have some greys to try it out on. And sure enough, the creamy feeling powder does cover greys very effectively. This newer version of grey cover powders looks like make up – I showed it on a recent Periscope and mostly, people thought it was for brows or lids.

There is a heck of a lot of packaging here for two tiny bricks of powder – it looks exactly like an Illamasqua palette (but doesn’t have the weight in the feel) and who has time to pick out each shade or even blend them to something that’s an exact match? Someone did point out that it’s a very handy product for wig wearers to run around the wig/hair line, but it’s a more patient person than me who can be bothered to be so exact about grey coverage. The John Frieda Root Blur comes in four shade options from the lightest platinum to a dark espresso blend. It’s £14.99 HERE.
