Review: Makeup Revolution Pressed Powder (Translucent)12:32
A while ago Makeup Revolution Slovenija (Ličila.si) surprised us with some new products from Makeup Revolution. I've already reviewed their Contour Kit, which has quickly become one of my favorite products from Makeup Revolution. I also got their Pressed Powder in shade Translucent. I really like this one too. Read more to find out why.
It costs 2.95€ and you get 7.5 grams (buy it here). I think it's a really good price for the amount. For example Rimmel Stay Matte is something around 5€ and you get 14 grams, so it's kind of in that range, which is very affordable.
I also really like the packaging, although I was a skeptic at first. It has clear plastic lid and the powder slides out from the side. It clicks back into place and it doesn't open, unless you push it.
On the bottom is a little compartment with a sponge, which makes it perfect for carrying around and doing some touch ups. Also another surprise, where you see the sticker with the description, if you remove it, you can see round mirror. Perfect! You have everything - sponge and mirror to see where you're putting it.
The ingredients list.
One thing I love the most about this powder is how pale it is. I'm pale, you know that, but this is really pale. I've never had such a light colored powder and it excites me. In the summer I can use this as a highlight and in general I like putting it over darker foundations, because it makes me look really pale (actually as I naturally am underneath the foundation). Of course then I go in with bronzer, but that is another thing, making my face look more 3D.
It's not too dry as far as the texture goes, it almost feels a bit moist, which means you'll get a really good color payoff. It doesn't look cakey even after few hours and I find it to be pretty long lasting. It also helps me from looking too shiny through the day.
I'm not very demanding when it comes to powders. I like it not too look too cakey after a while, not to look to dusty when putting it on and to help me combat the shine and this one does it all. Plus it's really pale, which is my favorite thing about it.
And this is how I look like with it on. Pale piece of paper :).
I wanted to compare the shade to Rimmel Stay Matte in Transparent. Rimmel's is a bit more yellow toned and a tad darker, while Makeup Revolution's is paler and a bit more on the neutral white side.
They have powders in different shades, but definitely go for Translucent if you want something super pale. It might look good on medium skin tone as a highlighter, if you don't like shimmery shiny highlighters. It's a really good basic powder and the price is also very good. I think I'll probably repurchase it, because I've already hit the pan. That's the only thing I wish for it, maybe for them to make a bigger size - opt for 14 grams instead of 7.5 grams, but that's just my preference :).
