BEN NYE BANANA POWDER

One product I use to constantly use and rave about is the Ben Nye Banana powder and suddenly it became harder to pick up and well as it does, something else came along and until recently I had forgotten all about it. If you have never come across it before, Ben Nye Banana powder it holds is not any ordinary setting powder, it is one which holds cult status amongst the world of celebrities, including Kim Kardashian!

Now with a bit of a makeover, the Ben Nye Banana Powder has been relaunched, gone is the bottle which was quite awkward to use and very messy and in its place is the brand new luxury Dome Jar packaging which is not only much easier to use and work with, it creates less mess and is travel friendly. With so many different uses, this Ben Nye Banana Powder, which does have a slight hint of colour to it, banana, in fact, helps to absorb excess oil incredible well, it can help neutralise darkness, subtly colour corrects surface redness and pink undertones, as well as neutralises blue under eye circles and also helps to brighten the skin. 

Suitable for all skin tones, even mine which some describe as being almost see through, I switch between the type of brush I use for application. If I am using it as a setting powder then I use a big powder brush or powder puff to apply it evenly to my skin. If I am using it to set my concealer, which it does incredibly well, then I opt for a much smaller brush and it is brilliant and ensuring there is no caking or creasing of said concealer. Again, with a slight redness on both cheeks, I find this powder does help to neutralise it slightly, so if I decide I just want to wear a tinted moisturiser, I would use this on the top. 

Inside the power, the powder is really finally milled and on the skin it is really lightweight, more so than some of the setting powders I have used for a long time and it because it does so much more than any powder I have ever used it is just amazing and I am so glad to have it back in my stash.


Priced at just £13.50 this powder is such good value for money, you use so little of it every time you apply your make up that it lasts for a really good amount of time. If you have never tried this powder and it has always intrigued you, it is available from Precious about Makeup - HERE.

Have you tried this Powder before?

  13. I didn't realise how reasonably this was, I've tried banana powder before but they didn't work out for me. Sad times. But I'm so glad the packaging is changed, much prefer loose powders like this xx
