Review:  There was a time that I decided the Hourglass Veil Powder was my holy grail item, I stopped buying or even trying loose powders.  That was a pretty easy decision because on a regular basis, I do not really use a lot of powders nor do I "bake" my face.  When I ran out of the powder (it retails for $46); ELF came out with their Halo Glow Powder.  Due to ELF's affordability, I picked up the powder.  Low and behold, the formula is the closest thing to the Hourglass Veil Powder and I was stoked.  While I still owned the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, ELF became the Veil powder replacement.  

Enter Revolution Pro Goddess Glow Finishing Powder.  The packaging is as high end as the Hourglass Veil Powder.  This comes in a reflective gold box with black typography.  The powder shade it built into the design of the box (not a sticker) which can be found on the top opening.  The tub is made out of clear plastic like many loose powders in the market.  It has a gold screw cap and a powder puff.  The powder has a netting (similar to Huda Beauty's loose powder) to contain the product and also to dispense it.  I picked up the shade Radiate which is similar to the ELF Halo Glow Powder shade in Light and the same shade as the Hourglass Veil Powder.  This Goddess Glow Powder is silky and smooth.  There is a very soft sheen when applied on the skin; a true definition of a glow finishing powder.  This isn't a powder I would use underneath the eye area, if you are into setting your concealer.   It has a sheen to it so you might want to use a fluffy brush instead  of a damp sponge to apply the powder, should you choose to use it to set your concealer.  The ELF Halo Glow Powder is more suitable to use under the eye area.

This powder is beautiful on the skin.  It gives the skin a nice glow; similar to its "lit from within" claims.  I was really surprised by this powder.  The price point, the packaging and its quality - it is something I definitely recommend.  If you have oily skin, you may not like that it has a sheen.  I recently picked up the Pat McGrath Sublime Loose Powder during their sale last week so I am looking forward to trying that as well.  Maybe that will be the powder I use for the under eye area should I need to set my concealer.  I wonder if it will provide a nice glow as this Revolution Pro powder.  For now, this Revolution Pro trumps the ELF Halo Glow Powder.  The packaging on its own is way better although I am not a fan of loose powders with netting.  I prefer the regular one with holes on top.
