Product Review | Makeup Revolution Conceal and Fix Setting Powder in Deep Honey ($11, Ulta.com).
Product Details (from Ulta's website): The Makeup Revolution Conceal & Fix Setting Powders are true-skin, ultra-finely milled powders which melt into the skin to set your makeup in place or to control excess oils. All shades are water resistant, completely flashback free & talc free to give any look some serious staying power.
Review: A while back, I had decluttered quite a few of my powder products (pressed and loose). I decided keeping only one loose powder which was the Hourglass Veil Setting Powder. Recently, I was intrigued by the ELF Halo Glow Powder and realized it is similar to the Hourglass Veil Powder and decided to keep it. I picked up another shade in medium hoping to use it as a tinted powder versus the translucent one but it had a peach tint to it which left a slightly orange color. I saw a review on YouTube about the Makeup Revolution Powder and decided to try it due to the shade range and variety of undertone. I picked up the shade Deep Honey (for golden to medium olive skin tones with yellow undertones). The item comes in a clear plastic box with black typography. The powder is contained in a clear plastic jar with a pink screw cap that can be lifted up as well. It also has an extra plastic cover to help contain the loose powder which is perfect for travel.
True to its claims, it is an ultra-fine powder that melts into the skin. I do not use this powder to control oil, but instead I lightly dust it all over the face for an airbrushed look. I haven't tested its claims to being water resistant and have no plans of doing so. The closest thing I can test its water-resistant claims is against sweat when I go to the gym after work. However, that is also a hard claim to prove because I always wear a setting spray which locks my makeup in place even after a good workout. I rarely do flash photography so that is another aspect I cannot attest to in terms of flash back. But then again, I did not purchase this powder for that purpose so I am not too worried about it. What I can tell you is that this is a beautiful powder and it makes my skin looked airbrushed. However, keep in mind that I use it as a dusting powder with a very light hand and coverage. Since this is an oil-control powder, I can see how if you too much it can make your skin look cakey and dry. Would I recommend this powder, I would say yes and if you are also going to use it as a dusting powder.
