Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder Review

Hi, all..

Remind me again why we all have to take extra care when it comes to covering the under eye area? Yup, it could be a little gray-ish, or even worse, a whitecast. I swear, you don't want that to happen. Another worst scenario probably, your under eye products could flaunt your dark circle or showing your fine lines. Well, in case of that i have found a product that making a buzz lately. Let me introduce you to Ben Nye Banana Powder

Banana, What?
Nope it's not made from banana and it doesn't smell like one either.
According to their website, Ben Nye is a family owned company dedicated to serving professionals throughout the worlds. Their products are manufactured in Los Angeles and used their broad film experiences to design their makeup line nearly 50 years ago. Wow, where have i been..

So, now we know that Ben Nye is a makeup line. What's a banana powder?

Ben Nye are known for their powder products. One of their products was named The Luxury Powder. They launched it in a few shades: Banana, Beige Suede, Buff, and Cameo. 
These silky-fine, mattifying translucent setting powders have this beautiful hint of color.
Corrects surface redness and pink undertones, as well as neutralizes bluish under eye circles.

Said: Each one is specially formulated to absorb excess oil and soften the appearance of pores and texture. Enhance your fair-skinned, youthful glow with Cameo, balance out light to medium skin tones with Buff, and warm up tan to deeper skin tones with Beige Suede.

So much from one product? Let's take a look! 
The powder is very smooth, have a yellow hint and it suit my skin tone very well. Since it's almost doesn't show on my skin, i asked my friend to model and borrowed his hand who has a darker skin tone than mine so you can see these soft powder :)


how
Use banana powder after applying foundation & concealer, right before contouring and powdering

opinion
I personally think that this product is very great, especially for you who has a problem with under eye circle. If you haven't try this, you probably should. The price is quite affordable. It's $12 for 1,5 oz. In Indonesia you can have it around IDR140-300rb the prices are different depending on which online shop you are looking to.

I am applying a very thin layer of foundation too before using this banana. After applying banana powder, you need to set your face with loose powder or compact powder yet again. But, you only need a tinsy bit of it. Because the banana powder already did a marvelous job on the coverage thingy. 

I suggest you to wear this on a special occasion or maybe a night out event, because the glow it gives you create this very glowy polished look and i think it doesn't suit casual day occasion. But, once again, it's up to you :D

The staying power is very good. Later that day, i took photos with my camera phone and i still have that subtle glowing on my face. It's been hours and i don't see any fine lines, smudging or any grossness on my face! I'm one happy customer :D

 
Ingredients
For you ingredients-curious, it contains the parabeans family tho..... 
Banana Powder: Talc; Zinc; Stearate; Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch; Zea Mays (Corn) Starch; Methylparaben; Propylparaben; Butylparaben; May Contain (+/-): CI NO. 77491; 77492; 77499; 73360 (Iron Oxides; Red 30 Lake); Parfum Free.

Conclusion
So, i' m saying that this is a very good product and you should go grab one before they upgrade the price, like the one happen on Egyptian Magic Cream. Just Saying. LOL.
Here's the pros and the cons

+ Great cover up
+ No fine lines 
+ Match with most skin tones
+ Affordable
+ Camera Ready
+ Absorb excess oil

- Contains parabeans
- Not always available in Indonesia so maybe you have to Pre-order it
