Honest reviews



I know this is a great contour powder, but I use it as a setting powder and just general powder over my tinted primer and it works perfectly! No shine and it gives me a great effortless look!Personally, I think all women should have this in their makeup arsenal. It isn’t that expensive and is easily accessible. Also, please don’t shy away if you’re an African American woman as I am. This really is translucent and works perfectly!

On the Fence!

OK I read lots of reviews on this product and thought what the heck!I’ve used it for a full week. Applied it different ways. I see no difference. I really don’t.I don’t like the container. It’s too small to put the product in and to use my Kabuki brush or another similar brush to pick up the powder. It ends up all over my table. That is a waste in my opinion.I have a few powders from other cosmetic companies that are easier to use, the product doesn’t get wasted, and frankly my makeup looks better.I wanted to like this, but I just don’t. For the money I feel the packaging leaves a lot to be desired, and most importantly, it should have made me look better!

If you are white/ light skinned/ pale:It isn’t for you! The banana I think looks very odd on lighter skin tones! I didn’t like the quality nor did I like to wear it.

I wrote a review elsewhere:) this is a must have for any makeup artist and beautiful ladies in all shapes and color. The product is awesome it is easy on the wallet and beautiful on the face.

crack for the skin!

I am hooked. I love this stuff. If you are a makeup user like me then you know how important it is to have the right powder. This is perfect and I use a smaller brush under my eyes over concealer and it makes it look so natural. It immediately takes away shine Can’t recommend it enough.

Great product

Holds my makeup in place, very natural looking and feel, no breakouts and will last for a very long time.

My bad….

If I was to be honest, I’d give this a 1 star rating. But since the problem is with me, not the product – I’m giving it a 4.I have light (read "fair") skin, and no matter how little of this product I use, I look yellow. Which, had I completely read all of the reviews, I would have known. So I can’t blame the product for my own incompetence :)On the upside (justifying the 4 star rating) this product has a super fine consistency, is almost completely odor free, and applies very easily. Despite the yellow tinge to my skin, it did leave a beautiful matte finish. I imagine you’d get many, many uses out of this jar. Even though its "only" 3 ounces – that’s a lot of product. For the price (and the right skin tone) this product is a win.

Perfect highlighter for my skin tone+ foundation shade

I am medium deep skin, my foundation are, mac matchmaster in the shade 7.0, steed lauder double wear in the shade rich caramel,mac studio fix in the shade mw45, mac pro long wear in the shade nc45, this banana powder is perfect highlighter for my shade, is not too light at all, is very blend able, it does not make me look ashen either. I can honestly say I can put this powder all over my face to set my foundation. I hope this help!

I love this. I am a brown skinned woman and this is amazing as an under eye-setting powder. It sets and completes my highlighted under eye makeup, giving me a magnificent glow. I also think it will last me awhile as I do not have to use much at one time.

Fran Four States, WV

awesome stuff

Great banana powder. Love how it looks and how it goes on. Kim Kardashian uses it, so that’s cool. It may seem expensive, but will last a very long time because you don’t have to use much. I ordered one for my friend too.

As awesome as everyone makes it out to be

Firstly, this vendor is great! The delivery was super fast, within a week I had the powder. Secondly, the powder itself is a good product. My skin I would say is medium tan to now tan since its summer and i apply this powder for contouring as many youtube video tutorials can show you. This powder goes on pretty sheer if you apply sparingly so don’t be afraid to glob it on because after you buff with a brush the results are not as drastic. It does not look cakey at all no matter how much you apply and it does not feel heavy. I wouldn’t recommend for lighter skin tones for contouring because this will not show up on your face but this will work for you as a setting powder. Enjoy!
