Hey Pursebuzzers (:
Today’s featured product is the Ben Nye Banana Powder!
Purchased from Camera Ready Cosmetics in San Diego!

Background Info:  This loose powder has been around for quite a few years, but became more well known when Mario Dedivanovic (make-up artist)  stated that he uses this powder on Kim Kardashian. It’s well known among many beauty guru’s & bloggers– so here’s to another review. But I’m ALWAYS 100% honest, so take notes:)

IMG_4126This is the 3 oz. packaging. The powder is very finely milled.
The powder is very light & it practically appears translucent on my skin.
The benefits for me is that it covers redness & I love using this powder to set my under eye concealer! No more creasing!

IMG_4128I love applying this powder with a damp beauty blender or a kabuki brush from Sedona Lace.

IMG_4129 You truly need very little product to get the job done.
Some people can get away with using  this as an all over powder, I can’t.
However, it’s perfect for highlighting the under eye area. Definitely gives you that brightening effect.

IMG_4130This powder will not give you a “cakey” look— I’m overall satisfied. I purchased one for my make-up kit as well :)banana powderAnd here is a picture of a make-up look where I used the Banana Powder :) LOVE!

PROS: affordable, love the finish, blends great

CONS: the packaging, not too big of a fan, but i would still repurchase!


PRICING: $13.99
