Makeup Revolution Baking Powder Ghost Finish

I don't know about you but keeping up with all of the new releases from Makeup Revolution and their sister brands is quite exhausting and whilst I do have my eye on one or two products, this product dropped through my letterbox.

Following on from the success of their version of the Luxury Banana powder, the clever people behind the brand have developed something for those of us with much paler skin, whom might find the Banana Powder a little too yellow - meet Ghost Finish, a baking powder with a light finish for users with a paler skin complexion.

The term 'Baking' is one that is banded about all over the place currently and in simple terms it refers to letting translucent powder sit on your face for five to 10 minutes, which allows the heat from your face to set your base foundation and concealer, and then dusting it off your face, leaving you with a creaseless, flawless finish - something Kim K is a huge fan of and I am told the drag community have been doing it forever!

Ghost Finish is a finely milled white mattifying powder which is designed to set the areas you generally place concealer, for me this means under the eyes, the centre of your forehead, the bridge of your nose and the chin. You can also use it over the entire face to set your foundation and to give that overall highlighted look.



With a name like Ghost Finish, I was expecting to find my face looking as though it had been covered in Talcum Powder, thankfully however this is not and has not been the case.  Whenever I apply my makeup, I admit I am a faffer (technical term!) and I am easily distracted, so applying my base products and then this, gives me that chance to faff whilst my face 'bakes'. Packaged inside this plastic tub, the powder is tipped out through holes, similar to those you find on a talcum powder bottle and I pour it either into the lid or onto the top of my hand and then use my setting brush to ensure it goes onto my face in the places I want it to go. It doesn't clump and it doesn't show up or give you a 'talc face' instead, it does lock your makeup in place and it does help to enhance the wear ability and last ability, the latter I found quite surprising.


If you have never tried Baking before and want to give it a try, then Ghost Finish comes in a plastic tub which contains 42g of powder and it retails for just £5 this is well worthy of grabbing it quickly whilst you can and giving it a try.

  4. I love the baking technique. It's good to see they've got a powder for paler skin tones. Banana powder doesn't really suit me x

  9. I always bake my nose as my foundation tends to breakdown throughout the day. I love my KVD Lock It but this looks like a fab dupe.
