Review: Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder
|The loose powders currently in my stash.|
I think that Ben Nye and Palgantong Theatrical Powder have the most similarities. They are both use for the theater. Both delivers a smooth application but Ben Nye has a BIT more velvety feel on the face. Palgantong, on the other hand, does not cake when used on my under eyes, it has a better staying power and this gives a truly brightening effect on my skin. Palgantong is hailed as the Star Powder in Japan!!! You can refer to the photos above. The Ben Nye Powder appears a bit streaky compared to Palgantong. I would buy Palgantong than Ben Nye. Btw, the Palgantong Powder was one of my first powders after the tragedy to to Phoebe of http://www.phoebeann.me/ for this. You can buy Palgantong from http://beautyandminerals.multiply.com. For finishing powder with mattifying effect, go for Krave's oil control eliminator.

I think Ben Nye is just one of those over hyped products I wished I did not cave to. I honestly think that it is not worth the 800 pesos I paid for because in all aspects and degrees, it did not impress me. Please do note that I have specifications in rating a product. For a powder - does it suit my skintone? Is it worth the money? Does it control my oilies? etc. Will I buy again? Never.
I do not want to rain on others' parade. This powder has the qualities others are looking for. Sadly, it is not for me. I am still contemplating if I will be selling my Ben Nye Powder.
