I have already shared an amazing loose powder for oil control and baking under the eyes (review here). And today I will be sharing a setting powder for face. Right from it’s launch, I was interested to get the Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana powder. And now, after having used it for a couple of months, I have finally decided my thoughts on this. Read on to know!
I believe there’s a translucent powder as well, called as ghost finish but there’s no darker shade.
It comes in a plasctic see through bottle with little openings. This is not the best I’d say because, unlike other loose powders, there is no space to store the excess powder left after using. No matter how hard I try to keep it in the lid, it always spills the next time I use it. So, take out the powder very cautiously.
This is a setting powder hence I wouldn’t recommend this to be used just alone. Use it over a bb cream or foundation to set it. It provides no coverage whatsoever but beautifully sets the base and leaves no trace of shine providing a flat matte finish.
I wouldn’t say this is the finest milled powder, but yes, it is quite fine. Very little is needed to set the face and blends in easily. It also keeps the face oil free for a longer period of time (as compared to a conventional compact powder).
The shade, sadly, will suit limited skintones. Very fair and dusky skinned people might not find this a good match. Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana powder might look yellow on pale skins and ashy on deeper skintones. Although, it matches my skin quite perfectly.
My verdict on Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana powder:
I have a love-not love kind of a relationship with this (hatred would be a too strong word here). This keeps my face oil free and sets the foundation beautifully but at the same time it provides a flat matte finish which I am not fond of. I have to bronze up to add back the dimensions to my face (which is an added step to my hectic mornings). Also, I can’t use this to set my under eyes because it creases. I’ve tried it with many concealers but it creased and accentuated the fine lines. It also Though it provides a flat matte finish, it becomes skin like once the oils start seeping through. I can’t assume how it’d work for dry skinned people because it (sometimes) clings to my dry patches. Oily skinned people are going to like this if they don’t mind the flat matte finish.
