Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder Review

Hey Everyone!

Ben Nye Banana Powder

If you are a makeup lover like me and love watching YouTube videos I am sure you are aware of the very famous Ben Nye Banana Powder!

I came to know about this miraculous powder while watching YT and almost on every channel the girls would rave about this product and how good it is for setting the under eye concealer! After hearing so much about this product I had to have it! 

Ben Nye Banana Powder Review

Ben Nye is one of the industry leaders in the makeup industry for theatrical makeup. Their products are often used by makeup artists worldwide in photoshoots, films, TV etc. Ben Nye Luxury Powder comes in different colors and sizes, I have the smallest size which contains 42gm of product and the shade is Banana. 

The powder comes in very basic plastic tub packaging and has sifter on top. The openings on the sifter are very big and it dispenses a hell lot of product which results in wastage! Wish they would change the packaging and make the sifter with tiny holes.

Ben Nye Banana powder is extremely finely milled and has soft yellow tinge to it. The powder is perfect for setting under eye concealers since the yellow tinge works as a brightener under the eyes making your eyes appear brighter! It does not provide any coverage but seals your concealer in place so that it does not budge! It definitely makes my concealer last all day.

The powder is extremely finely milled so you just need a light touch of it. I am using this powder from over a year now and you can still see I have 90% left! So it will go on for a long time! It does not make my concealer crease or settle into fine lines and gives very natural finish! If you have extremely dry under eye area always moisturize it before putting on the concealer to avoid emphasizing the dryness.

Ben Nye Banana Powder Swatches

You can use a powder puff, a sponge or even a small blending brush to set the concealer using this powder. I use my Real Techniques Setting brush since its small and fits perfectly under the hollows of my eyes :) 

The best thing about this powder is how flawless it looks on camera! I always use only this powder in all my FOTDs and absolutely love how it makes my under eye skin flawless and bright! i always get questioned asked on this so ladies this is one of the reason!
