Rated 3.96 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review It is a fair value.
It does what it claims to do best - not make a mess, come off in your (or partners!) fingers, not dirty your pillows. However, I gave it a 4 star because it doesn't cover the gray easily. I have to keep applying it to really cover my roots. I like the coverage of a spray better but my scalp felt crunchy!
Most Helpful Critical Review It works but . . .
It works but it smudges off on everything and takes a lot more than I thought it would to cover the gray. If you typically put your sunglasses on top of your head when not wearing them, you might want to rethink that. The hair color will get on the bottoms of the sunglasses and leave colored rings on your face the next time you put on your sunglasses. If you don't touch your hair - or have a toddler who likes to touch everything, including your hair, especially when she realizes you don't *want* her to touch your hair - then the product will probably work fine for you. To me it also seemed messy; little flecks would fly all over when I was applying it (getting the product on the brush). It's not for me based on the above reasons, but it is a cool idea. Maybe the formula could be improved so it doesn't transfer quite so easily.

Thank you for the free darker color. It woks better to cover my Gray on my new growth. It looks natural. Great service to suggest to try using different color on you guys.
This is the best product of it's kind.

Dab or paint with brush.
YES-this is a good product!

I was finding myself slowly moving up my recoloring process...with this product I added a week between colorings as it's my hairline that shows the gray first!
Laura S from JACKSONVILLE, OR
This just barely covers any grey. Makes a slight difference. I'm really disappointed. And I'm only about 20% grey. I tried to apply a lot just to see if I could build up to decent coverage. Nope. Those little mascara-like options at the health food store work WAY better and at 1/3 the cost.
Covers the roots & eyebrows nicely!

Nice root coverage for those in between times!
sarah from New York
this product is great! I bought one over a year ago and I'm still not through it completely. I have dark brown hair and I use the black. I use it to cover grays, my lightening roots, and my thin hairline.
If you are having difficulty getting your coverage, try applying it while your hair is slightly damp, not wet. I then gently comb it through and apply more if I need it. Use logic, this is a powder product that you want to stick to your strands of hair!
Does the Job
Colleen C from MARSHFIELD, MA
It works well but you need to get a fair bit on the applicator. I give it four starts because if you have a thinning hairline and use it there then it leaves it on your skin — can help "fill in" the hairline but doesn't look fabulous.
Will buy again

I put the darker color on first then mix the lighter color in. Helps to cover the scalp. Doesn't feel sticky
Patricia W from AUBURN, GA
I tried It on my roots before I colored my hair. Wow! This worked great. I'm sure it will be awesome to use in between coloring. I don't like to color my hair too often. I I will buy again and would recommend it to others.

Absolutely love the products!

It's a must have in your maintenance regimen!!!
Carolyn S from BROWNSVILLE, TN
Seems to work well. However, there is some residual when you touch up with scheduled revolt. But not unpleasant an effect.
Could not cover gray
Barbara T from DANVILLE, CA
Piled on the powder but would not and could not cover my gray roots. Waste of my money!!! Too bad they don't take returns on this product
This product does not work
Christeen D from SAN MATEO, CA
The powder makes a splotchy powdery mess and does not cover grey.
Not sure what you want here.
Terry L. I from SACRAMENTO, CA
It's too light and makes the roots more obvious. What would be the next darker touch up color I should go with? I'm using the Tuscany shade of hair color.
Karen H from SAINT JOHNS, FL
I liked how the powder went on and it looked similar to my Novara brown hair color products. Unfortunately, it looks much lighter than the rest of my color when input it on.
Did not work
Layla from South Carolina
Expensive and not worth it at all
would not recommend
Gina S from VALLEY STREAM, NY
not happy with this product. did not feel it covered grays sufficiently and the application at hairline and temples leaves more on skin than on hair. going back to spray root concealer.
Pretty good on the temples
Lynda N from RINGGOLD, GA
This is nice to use when you are trying to hold off a little longer on your next colour but it does not give complete grey coverage. It does help some though.
Does not cover!
Max B. from Watertown
This product does not cover my white roots. The color does not adhere at all. I normally buy Color Wow Root Cover Up to extend the time become colorings but thought I would give the Madison Reed a chance given all the hype on Facebook about their hair color. Bad choice. Total waste of money.
Root Touch up for Blondes
Cynthia A A from TAMPA, FL
This powder works great and the color tones are good, not too yellowish and blends naturally. I've tried other brands of root touch ups and the colors for Blondes are always way off.
Great add on
Kelli C from ASSONET, MA
Loved it.. great add on for the in between times for a quick touch up
NOT medium brown
Jennifer N from ANNANDALE, MN
I had ordered the root touch up (dark brown) a year ago and as a product in general covered well however, it is more black in color than dark brown and is too dark for me. I ordered the next lighter color (medium brown) and it does not color grey at all and is more of a light brown. Madison Reed you need a go between! And since this is not refundable, this was a complete waste of money. If you are a medium-dark brown, think twice before wasting your money. Back to eye shadow for my root re-growth :(
Completely natural looking

I love the root touch up. It's fantastic! I used a different product in the past and was so embarrassed when it began to flake off on my face while at work. People kept saying you have dirt on ur face. So I used the MR touch up and not one flake not one smudge and I had my glasses on my head and propped them up and down all day and nothing!!! Excellent product!!!!
