The Ben Nye Banana Powder has been described as the crack for the face! The brand, Ben Nye was formerly known as Visage Poudre Luxury Powders. They described the Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder on their site as “Micro milled for a silk texture, luxury Powders are translucent with just a hint of colour…

The luxury powder is presented in a shake bottle with large holes to dispense the product. Truly, the powder features a silky fine texture; it is translucent with just a hint of colour and gives an incredible neutral subtle finishing unlike regular translucent powder, it also gives superior matte finish as well- the dream for any good/ lasting make-up.

This translucent powder blends flawlessly and since this is a fix for oily skins, it works perfectly for same. It does this brilliantly as it doesn’t darken/ change its colour even when oil is secreted from the T-zone.


Very Natural:

Ben Nye Banana Powder smoother into the skin, covering up flawlessly and noticeably hides/minimizes pores. It adds no unpleasant colours or patches to the skin. It glides smoothly on the skin. It gives you a silky smooth and natural superior matte finish; helping your skin breathe.

Long Lasting:

The luxury powder stays on for hours without as thin as it feels. It stays on for hours at a stretch without it been retouched. It helps to set your make up well and doesn’t make them ‘run’. This is a plus for people who are too busy during the day to keep retouching their make-ups.

Perfect as Highlighter:

It is used by make-up artists as a highlighter. It is good for when contouring as is used to contrast between light and dark areas. It sets the make-up and again stays on and very natural.

It can be used as a powder on your liquid foundation to help it set. It helps control shine and will not change your foundation color much. It is reported that Kim Kardashian’s make-up artists use this on her to set her concealer and just generally brighten up her look.

The Ben Nye Banana Luxury powder is sure a make-up must have, it is absolutely brilliant for setting your make-up and stays on for hours, perfect for oily skins and in all just spot on. The luxury powder retails for about 3,500 to 4,000 naira and it is worth every penny plus you need just little quantity per application.

The downer for me though is the presentation; the shake bottle most times dispenses more than is required at once. But in all, the product is just amazing!
