After using it a few times, here's what I think about it.
- It's good, but it's not the bees knees. I don't think it's a must have.
- The powder is very finely milled and applies really smoothly. I use my bdellium face brush in 974 to apply.
- The packaging is very fiddly, and boy is it messy to use!
- I use it both to set my concealer, and also to set my foundation.
- This sets my foundation really nicely, takes away all shine without any cakiness, and makes it last all day.
- Despite being so yellow in the container, once applied it blends onto my skin and does not give a yellow cast.
- I like it, but I don't love it. If it wasn't so messy to use, I'd probably love it, but oh the mess... I can't deal.
Here's the powder in action. I do think it looks lovely on, but it doesn't give the brightening effect I was looking for. I don't think this is the fault of the powder itself, I just think that the colour is perhaps too close to my own skin tone (NC25), so it acts like a translucent/setting powder instead of a brightening powder. Maybe it will look nicer on slightly darker skin tones.
Here's how it looks on Kim K. See, I think it probably looks nicer on darker skin tones.
PS: In Australia you can get the Banana Powder from Scotty's Makeup for between $17 - $23 depending on size.
Have you tried this powder? What do you think of it?
