Phantom Complexion Powder

Phantom Complexion Powder
This formula from 1897 is carefully recreated to combine great effectiveness with historical accuracy. This is Victorian-era mineral makeup - a loose powder with a light and delicious scent!

'Phantom' and 'Invisible' were common names for translucent powders during the late 19th Century, and while this powder is visibly white in the container, we have tested it successfully on a wide range of customers. Wear it lightly, to reduce shine and set makeup, or layer it on for a paler look.

Like all of our products, Phantom Powder is talc-free. We replaced the talc in the original formula with mica coated with natural vegetable wax to provide the slip and transparency of the original product.

The fragrance of Phantom Powder is also true to the original formula, deriving from natural essential oils and solvent-free extractions. The original recipe used musk as a fixative, which we have substituted with musk ambrette seed extract, a natural plant alternative to animal musk and synthetics.

Phantom Powder is packaged in 20 gram volume, clear plastic sifter jars.
