Makeup Revolution Lace Luxury Baking Powder

If you watch a lot of YouTube makeup tutorials, you’ll definitely have seen many use the baking technique to set their makeup, which was a trend that was originally used by drag artists but has now become a lot more mainstream. Baking is the term in which you apply a heavy amount of loose translucent powder under the eyes and on the high points of the face over your base makeup to set everything with a flawless finish.

It is recommended that you let the translucent powder sit on the skin for upto ten minutes so that the natural heat of your body can meld the concealer into your skin, and then dust off the excess loose powder with a large fluffy brush once you’ve baked your makeup.

It’s definitely a buzz word within the beauty community right now, and it’s not something I do very regularly as I have super dry skin, and the idea of caking on my concealer and powder really doesn’t appeal as I do find it can just exacerbate my dryness even more which I definitely don’t want.

From the shades on offer, I chose the Makeup Revolution Lace Luxury Baking Powder as I have pale skin with a cool undertone and Makeup Revolution describe Lace as being “a neutral, light, pink toned baking powder” which I thought would match my skintone, but I might still try the white version as I’m interested to see how they compare for pale skin.

I do own the Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder which I love, but I can only use a minuscule amount as the yellow tone is just too noticeable for my skintone, so I never bothered trying the Makeup Revolution Banana Powder as I assumed it’d be the same issue, but I’ve seen nothing but rave reviews for the Makeup Revolution Banana Powder.

The Makeup Revolution Lace Luxury Baking Powder is packaged within a clear plastic pot, with a sifter allowing you to tip powder into the lid and then dip your brush into the lid to pick up powder.

I don’t love the lid on the pot as it’s not very secure, and doesn’t screw back on very easily, which is less than ideal for a loose powder, but I ensure I store the pot upright in my powder drawer, and it’s not something I’d ever take out the house anyway as it’d cause carnage in my makeup.

I could, however, easily depot a little powder into a travel pot if I did want to carry some around in my makeup bag. Furthermore, I’d recommend tipping out very little powder and add more to the lid rather than shaking out too much as you can’t easily replace any leftover powder. You can lift off the sifter, but I found that to be very messy, so now I just shake the powder out very carefully to minimize unnecessary wastage.

The Makeup Revolution Lace Luxury Baking Powder does have a subtle pink tone, but I don’t find it to be noticeable on my skintone, but it might be for those with deeper skintones.

I’ve tried using the powder to set my makeup and I don’t enjoy it as an all over setting powder, so I do find it’s just best used as a baking powder as it is really mattifying and a little drying.

When baking, I’ve been using the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer, and then applying the Makeup Revolution Lace Luxury Baking Powder with a dampened wedge sponge over the top.

I only leave my powder for around five minutes, and it does leave my under-eyes looking very smooth, and sets my concealer in place. I still wouldn’t use the baking method for every day, but I really enjoy using this powder for when I do want to give it a try, and it’s such a great budget – friendly option for only £5.
