When it comes to loose powder, I’m still on the hunt for a drugstore formula I enjoy so when Revolution launched the I Heart Revolution Coconut Baking Powder, I decided to give it a try as I’m a sucker for anything coconut scented.
I Heart Revolution Coconut Baking Powder
My current favourite loose powder is the Huda Beauty Easy Bake Powder, but it is pricey, so I’ve been hopeful that there’s a drugstore loose powder out there that would rival the Huda Beauty powder, but I’m yet to find it.
The I Heart Revolution Coconut Baking Powder is one of four loose powders in the range as part of the I Heart Revolution Loose Powder collection, and they’re just £5 each and contain 22 grams of product which is a hell of a lot of product for a loose powder.
Is anyone else sick of every single loose makeup powder being called a baking powder? Baking is a makeup technique, and the percentage of people that want to bake their makeup on a daily basis is very small, so I don’t know why every makeup brand now feels the need to call any loose powder a baking powder, but there we go.
The four powders available are; Coconut, Peach, Banana and Chocolate Banana, with Coconut being the lightest shade. They’re all scented powders, and claim to prolong the wear of your makeup, banish shine and brighten the skintone. They also each come with a cute little powder puff for application too.
I love the coconut scent of the I Heart Revolution Coconut Baking Powder, it smells lovely and it’s a really nice powder. It does a good job at setting your makeup and banishing shine, but it also does a great job at blurring the skin too which you can definitely see in the photo above.
Makeup Revolution don’t even make any claims for its blurring effects, which is a shame as it’s the best benefit of using the powder. I like to apply the powder with the fluffiest brush I can find, as it can look powdery and cakey quite easily unless you use it sparingly.
I don’t do baking but I wouldn’t want to use this particular powder for baking as I can only imagine how dry and textured it’d leave the skin when applying it so generously to the skin. I think this I Heart Revolution Coconut Baking Powder is one of the nicest drugstore loose powders, but it’s definitely not better than my beloved Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Powder.
