Ben Nye Face Powders in the original formula in eight shades.
Neutral Set is a white colored powder that is virtually colorless on most skin tones and is also the powder to use on creme makeup looks using fantasy colors.
Super White is used for powdering over white makeup to make the makeup even more white. This is good for clown makeup or fantasy makeups based in white.
Pretty Pink can give pale or light skin tones with a cool undertone a little oomph. Nice for enhancing very feminine looks and can cool olive tones.
Topaz, Sienna, Chestnut and Ebony are for darker skin tones and when used in conjunction with a creme base creates a very full coverage.
Fair, Neutral Set and Super White also come in mini sizes!

I have been using Ben Nye's loose powders for years. These are the most wonderful powders to have in a makeup artist's kit because of the versatility of colors to use for a wide variety of skin tones...from pale white to deep,dark ebony. Purchase two shades, one lighter and one darker to mix together whenever your skin tone changes. I'm lighter in winter but tanned in summer, so I have several shades of powders to mix together to accommodate my skin tone, including the "infamous" banana powder to highlight or brighten any area or just to mix to lighten another powder. I hope this review helps anyone in doubt because you can't go wrong with the Ben Nye powders!

I am an NC 40 in MAC and tried the Topaz on a review done by Destineygodley on YouTube. I love all the other powders I used by Ben Nye so I knew this would be great too. Its a little dark for me so I use it over my cream contour powder and it works great! All these powders really can be so universal. Thanks MUM for having great products at great prices.
