Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder | An Ultimate Favorite


An ultimate favorite. Three words to describe this amazing product. If there is one person on YouTube (and in real life) who inspires me greatly, it would be Judy of ItsJudyTime! She raved about this product and I just couldn’t wait to try it out myself! That time, I only had the Ben Nye Colorless Face Powder. Imagine my excitement when I learned that The Style Quarter is also selling the famous Banana Luxury Powder! I ordered it right away!

Ritchelle of The Style Quarter gave me the privilege to use my Ruby Membership (Premium) for this purchase! I only paid PHP 501.50 for a 1.5oz/42gm Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder!

Let us move on to the review proper.

The Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder:

Ultra-neutral powders provide superior matte and subtle finishing. Often compared to French powders with silky-fine textures. Visage Poudres are translucent with just a hint of color.

1.5oz/42gm shaker bottles. Expect 35-100 applications per ounce.

The shade I ordered is “Banana”. It is probably the best shade that fits Asian skintone! It might look a tad too yellow but trust me, it blends very well with the skin!

Considering the shaker bottle that the Banana Ben Nye Luxury Powder comes with, it might be a little difficult to bring this around while traveling. I purchased a powder container from Beabi (it only cost me PHP80+) and used it to contain the powder!DSC_0133

That worked really well for me! I highly recommend everyone (who owns the same product, and those who’re planning to buy one this season) to get a powder container for convenience!

I use a powder brush to buff the product on my face after applying my favorite bb cream foundation/ liquid/cream foundation. The Banana Luxury Powder gives an extra excellent mattifying effect, leaving the skin perfectly flawless. I stare at my skin with amazement every time I finish using this product!

The yellowish shade of the powder completely blends through.

Probably the best thing about this product is that it is long-lasting. I can use this product in the morning, and still have the same flawless look at the end of the day! With minimal touch-ups, even!

I’ve been using this face powder for the last 2 months, and believe me I’ve put it to the test (which is quite frankly why this review is up so late)

I highly, highly recommend this loose face powder. Ben Nye is no doubt a trusted brand. Amazing products. Amazing results.

I would definitely re-purchase. I might just get the bigger container(PHP990.00) I’ll I won’t forget to use my Ruby Membership Premium and get an awesome discount!

Here is a photo of myself having the Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder on my face:


I hope you enjoyed this review! I am and will always be deeply in love with the Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder!

  1. Hi! I'm a regular lurker in your page. :) Great post! I'm thinking about purchasing one, but don't know whether to get the neutral set or ben nye in banana. Help! The perfect shade of foundation for my skin tone is Guerlain Parure Extreme in Beige Pale. Etude house bright fit bb cream in Light beige works well on me too. I have to get this powder asap! :)) I'm afraid banana might be too yellow on me.

  2. Hi Say. Thanks for posting! I've been wanting to try this. How would you say this fairs against the RCMA colorless loose powder? I'm using that at the moment, but I feel like it's actually more white than colorless.. :)

  3. This is the best powder for photoshoots. I got mine too :)
