Ya… That’s right. I ran to my computer and ordered some yellow powder because Kim Kardashians makeup artist stated he used Ben Nye banana powder on her. I thought it would be great stuff. Everyone wants glowing highlighted skin like Kim right?
My personal story….
I really wanted some banana powder but was unsure at the time where to order it from. When I found yellow ‘banana’ powder on the ELF site called e.l.f. High Definition Powder during the holiday season for 50% off I was thrilled. Of course I bought several large containers of the stuff.
My skin tone is ‘fair,’ only slightly darker than porcelain with a neutral tone neither yellow or pink. Anyway… When I applied the yellow ELF powder under my eyes it created a pretty bright yellow cast that was undeniable. Even when I tried to cover it up with other powders it seemed to remain too much a a yellow hue for my face.
I wanted to love BANANA powder and to have skin like Kim Kardashian. But, the struggle is real. Banana powder simply does not work on my skin tone. I do keep my yellow powder in my makeup drawer to pat on lightly to any redness on my face. It seems I always have some degree of redness to deal with. So, I do use it and will use the rest of what I have. But, I will not be repurchasing it again. What’s your experience with banana powder? Does it work for you?
