Women of Color-Great buy
My skin color is a pecan brown. I have this Banana powder, it’s great. I use this product as highlighter underneath my eyes to brighten them. I also, use it as a eyeshadow base coat,face powder w/or out foundation (only needs a little). I’ve also purchased the Ben NYe Luxury powders in:Chestnut,Banana and Sienna all works great. The banana looks light (has more of a yellow tone) for darker women of color but it’s not, just use a little. I bought my powders from another vendor but wanted to share my reviews here.
Definitely not the real thing. Very cakey and similar to putting yellow flour on your face. Don’t be fooled. Save your money.
not good for light/fair skin
I watched so many youtube videos where artists used this product. I have pale skin and this does not show up on my face at all.
NOT WORTHY OF ALL THE HYPE!
If you’re a sucker for every gimmick (like me), throw your money in my direction & skip on buying this product. I agree with the reveiwer who stated it’s like baking powder. This VERY yellow, thick powder, was applied properly, with high expectations. The packaging is a nightmare, so I changed containers immediately to prevent spillage or over use. When applied over cream concealer, I was ready for the circus! It showed every line, including those I didn’t know I had. It made me appear sick with jaundice – it did not blend well using both light or heavy hands. I admire Mario, who uses this a lot on his clients and believes in it, but this particular recommendation of his is a TOTAL BOMB. I have a fair to medium complexion with minimal facial skin flaws. I have a lot of experience with powders and make-up application. Trust me, it’s dirt cheap for a reason, but sellers are constantly raising the price (in greed) due to demand. When this fad passes, you’ll find yourself entrusting in your older, tried & true powders. ~Stay beautiful!
Ben Nye banana powder
this is my absolutely favorite product! It does everything and more! Remember if you havent used and plan onusing it, that you will need some contouring or some blush because it can make you look yellow! but i am in lovewith this!! It is a setting powder and since I use the banana color, I just use it where I highlite!
Worth the hype
I had seen loads of YouTube videos and read about this powder. I honestly thought it was hype, especially at this price point. I’ve used chanel powder for years and years and most recently Bobbi Brian’s yellow shadow under my eyes. This powder is unbelievable. Use to highlight, on your whole face, or alone. It’s spun gold and entirely magical. I have a dark, middle eastern complexion and this color is perfect. I can’t imagine it working on lighter skin, but people swear by it. If you have deep skin tones (I’m neutral undertone) then I strongly recommend this powder!
this powder is beautiful.i was torn in betwen when i tried to make d purchase decision because i’m a black african(Nigerian.) but i gave it a trial and i am loving it soo very much.if you use it rightly it will work on your skin .soo black girls feel free to buy
READ IF YOU ARE LIGHT SKIN
If you are pale or light skin this would definitely not work for highlighting your under eye area , actually it would look make yor under eye bags look even worstthis is meant to use on medium to dark or dark skin peopleinstead try the Ben nye white powder or the light pink one those are really good
Good Under Eye Powder.
I use this powder to set my concealer under my eyes. It’s light weight and doesn’t look cakey at all. I am light tan and the color is perfect for me. I just wish this little bottle were a little cheaper !
I LOVE HOW SMOOTH IT IS AND THE COVER IT DOES I USE IT TO BRIGHTEN MY EYES AND CHEEK BONE AND LOVE IT AND THE PRICE IS SO GREAT
best setting powder for under eye concealer.
Why did I not buy this sooner! Its a little pricey but it does a great job. Definitely would recommend. worth every penny and you dont even need to use that much when applying so the bottle will last a long time.I just dab it on a triangular make up sponge to set my under eye concealer and its good to go! Flawless.
IM FAIR TO MED SKINNED TONE AND THIS WORKS PREFECT TO SET MY UNDER EYE CONCEALER !! ITS A STAPLE IN MY DAILY FOUNDATION ROUTINE !!CHECK THIS BAD BOY OUT ON MY YOUTUBE BEAUTY CHANNEL ( kimkreations p)FOUNDATION ROUTINE VIDEO TO SEE IT IN ACTION !ALSO, GOOGLE BEN NYE BANANA POWDER AND LOOK AT OTHER SITES ! BECAUSE YOU CAN LITERALLY GET THIS FOR JUST $10 !!! AMAZONS IS OVERPRICED
Not for me 🙁
I hate to be the bad guy because this powder is so heavily raved about but it just does not do it for me. I am in shade NC45 of MAC foundations and I have dry skin. This powder gives a very yellow cast and extremely mattifies your makeup, like extremely matte even with the lightest touch. Dry skin does not need help looking matte. I have a very cool undertone but this is still too yellow.
Too small for the price
This is priced way to high the bottle is really tiny, I ordered another ogle from the Fun shop and a bottle this small was 6.00 a large once was 11.00Product is nice both the price I deceptive
Great for undereyes
I use this powder to set my under eye concealer and it does a great job of keeping it in place without looking cakey. It also works to help highlight that area. Great powder!
I wished it worked for me like everyone else. It does smell very nice the powder is soft. It did not go well with the foundation that works for my skin so it was a justa product mismatch for me I guess, it happens.
I didn’t understand the hype at first, but I love it now! Doesn’t wash me out like typical white finishing powders!
Not for fair/light skin
It doesn’t show up on lighter skin shades so don’t purchase it if thats what you were born with. I might need to get a tan just to see what this powder is all about.
I live in the Caribbean so this powder isn’t sold anywhere in my country. I’ve seen a lot of people online raving about this product so I wanted to see what the big fuss was about. But let me tell you! It’s by far the best setting powder I’ve used ( I’m a makeup artist ) and it sets my concealer perfectly. I’ve order this powder in other shades and I can’t wait for them to arrive. The only problem I have with this product is the packaging. But I still give it full ratings and will recommend it to anyone who’s thinking of purchasing it.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND. AND IT LASTS
absolutely love this product. i would definitely recommend it to the beauty product lover! awesome for highlighting and halo looks.and the product lasts. had this for almost a year and havent run out yet. keep lid tightly secured though, it will spill out.
Ben Nye powder
i like this for my face. I have oily skin. and i usually have to watch for the oils peaking thru my make on a regular basis. now with this powder my face just glows. not so oily now. i only have to check it like once daily and no worries compared to every 2 hours or less. will definatly be placing another order for some back up later on.
Small powder but good
This powder came in good conditions. I was expecting a bigger powder but it is a small one, really small… Overall I do not see any difference but I use it every time I apply heavy makeup. It is soft. It is a yellow powder but it doesn’t give that color to your face.
Love banana powder
I love this powder! great for highlighting and it doesnt make my concealer crease. Great for women of color. I do have to say that the shipping took awhile (because i am impatient!) but it arrived safe and sound with no broken lid. I would definitely buy from this seller.
This powder is amazing. It sets your concealer to a flawless finish no matter what your complexion. I am a chocolate toned sista and this world perfectly :).
Not much needed
Ive heard raves about this banana powder and thought I’d try it out. Now I’m no makeup pro, but when I apply it I really can’t notice it. But in pics w/ a flash I’m a ghost! lol. I only apply it under my eyes on top of my concealer. Maybe I need to work on blending. But this is still an awesome product. A little goes a loooong way 🙂
i use it mostly as a finishing powder. its smaller than i thought. Doesn’t really highlight much for me. So i just put it on top of my contouring. It does a good job in lasting all day, doesn’t get into my creases. Now, i do have oily skin so it doesn’t help with that. But over all okay
Excellent Product! It really helps to set my concealer and keeps it in place all day long! The product arrived on time and in appropriate packaging.
bigger than I expected
I LOVE this stuff! I use it to set concealer under my eyes I wish I would have found this stuff a long time ago and I will buy it againRecommend this product for dark undereye circles works wonderss
Yes yes yes !!!
I freakn love this stuff ! I love putting it on after all my makeup is on. It blends it perfectly and gives you a good matte never dull finish . I just wish I would’ve got the bigger side . I’m a medium skin tone Chanel ; B30 Dior air flash 201 combination skin
I have never used a product like this before, this powder gives the best under eye highlight.. And it pretty much woks well with all skin shades…very easy to blend and it feels great on the skin..
