Please Note: There was a delay due to the holiday last week and Ben Nye is trying there hardest to get your Banana Powders into your hands as soon as possible. With that said, all orders with a Banana Powder on them, will not ship until atleast after Thursday, Dec. 12th.

Finely milled with superb texture, Ben Nye Luxury powders smooth skin while lightly enhancing skin tones. Note
Banana is a perfect face powder for warmer skin tone or when a warm based higlighting is needed.
These powders tend not to clog pores and create a smooth finish over foundation while reducing shine and setting makeup.
Also please note: The Bella Luxury Powder was formerly called the Visage Powder and the Luxury Powder by Ben Nye - it is now called Bella Luxury Powder.

I use Mac studio fix c4 and I'm looking for something to give underneath my eyes a powdery white look what color would you recommend?
Hi Monique -
The colors that are lighter than the Banana do not have a yellow base. The lightest in the Luxury line is Cameo. I wonder if that is what you are looking for. There is also a Fair and Neutral Set in the regular Ben Nye powders. If you want a whitish look though - I think I would try the Cameo first. The Luxury Line powders leave a velvet finish that can almost be seen. Did you know we have a Simple Sample program and a Deluxe Sample Program? The Simple Samples are a small amount that may or may not make one full face application and the Deluxe Samples are 3-5 full face applications. The Simple Samples are free and the Deluxe are $2.99. You can request up to 3 samples for each program. Please email email@example.com to get Simple or Deluxe Samples.
Hope this helps!

I'm African American with a semi-medium tone (not very light but not very dark...more of vanilla wafer if that makes sense). I use Studio Fix foundation in C7. What do color is recommended. I really want to try this to hold my foundation and combat the oil with the combination ski. I've heard excellent things about it. Thanks for your help!
Hi Danny - Definitely the Banana would work for you! Some people with your similar skin tone are liking the Camel and the Topaz also. We offer Simple Samples for free. So if you want you may request a sample. (3 max per person) Or you can purchase the Banana and get the samples of other colors sent to you. Hope this helps!

I\'m Nc50 in Mac foundation and Nw50 in Mac concealer. Would the banana work for me?
Hi Trish -
Yes - Banana would work if you are using as a powder to hold foundation. It may be a little light as just a powder on clean skin though. Some people are liking the Mojave line too - it has a few colors very rich in the darker warmer skin tones. If you would like to try before you buy we have a Simple Sample program that lets you try up to 3 samples for free. Or you can add samples onto any purchase also.
Hope this helps!

I purchased Banana powder here after trying a friends. It just arrived in mail and the packing layout and font are different than hers or any images online. Also, the powder is not yellow like hers - what came is a flesh tone.
Is this real Ben Nye?
MuM's MUA Note: Here is a link to Ben Nye where they are talking about the new packaging:
Are you sure you ordered Banana? It would be best to contact customer service and make sure we sent you the right one. In a review here we cannot see what you ordered to verify what happened. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your invoice number and they can definitely help you out with this. :)

Hi I use Bobbi Brown foundation stick in Beige 5. Do you think the Banana powder would look best on me? Thank you.
Hi Carrie -
If you would like a warmer tone to your skin - Banana would be a great choice - but it may be a little yellow as a exact match for you - depending on your natural undertone. Another color in the Luxury line that you may want to look at is the Buff - a little more neutral - not as warm - but the same beautiful velvet finish the Banana is known for. You can ask for Simple Samples for free or Deluxe Samples for $2.99 (up to three samples). Another color you might want to try if you like a really fair look, would be Cameo.
Hope this helps!

I've read so many reviews on the Banana Powder and decided to get it. It is awesome. I dust a little bit after I'm done with my makeup.
I am an NC42. I have no problems with my banana powder, but if I got the beige suede. How different would it be?
Posted by Kiran – 8th Nov 2013

Hi Kiran -
Yes the Banana would be the best choice for your skin tone for that!

I use the color nude in foundations and nc 25 in Mac studio fix which color would be best for me thanks!
Hi Stephanie -
It sounds like you are pretty neutral fair? If so and you like to stay more fair I would choose Cameo - if you want a little more depth of skin tone I would choose Buff. I hope this helps!

Hi ! I have never tried Ben Nye, so I am not sure about the colours. If I have very fair skin (cold undertone...blue veins), and usually use Ivory etc tones will this product be suitable for me... and wich tone should i use...
Hi there! We would suggest Cameo for your colouring. Thanks for asking! :)

I ordered the Ben Bye banana powder about a week ago received it and noticed it was not in authentic packaging(label isnt the same as real Ben nye banana powder) also is not as affective as real stuff. Do not order from here!!
Hi N/A - Please see the new packaging update on Ben Nye's Website: http://www.bennyemakeup.com/Whats_New.htm
Here it talks about the new packaging Ben Nye just released. Thanks for noticing the change though! : )

Amazing product! My makeup looks fresh and flawless throughout the day. Very fast shipping as well. I'll definitely be buying again <3
Posted by penelope – 1st Sep 2013
I use mac studio tech c4 what color would be good to purchase?? Totally new to Ben Nye powders but have heard how good it is that I would LOVE to try..
Penelope - I would try the Cameo if you are a C4 - Buff would be nice too - depending if you use a sheer or full coverage formula. Cameo for a sheer look, Buff for a full coverage look : )

When will the 1.5 oz Banana Powder be restocked??? :-(
Cierra - the Banana will be back in stock next week! :-)
Posted by Lauren the Mermaid – 19th Aug 2013
I should not have paid attention to the reviews I found saying that banana powder wouldn't look good on fair skin! I bought cameo first. I won't say that I hate it, but I was definitely looking for the glow that I get with the banana powder! I'm glad I bought the 3 oz. size because I will be using it all the time!
Posted by Candace – 8th Aug 2013
I'm so thankful I found MakeupMania! Your $2.99 shipping is AWESOME and my product came so fast. I purchased the Banana Powder for the first time and am LOVING it. After my long search for a concealer/brightener to cover my dark circles, this has solved my problems- or at least hid them ;)
Posted by Malani – 10th Jul 2013
When will there the banana shade be restocked? Urgently need 6 bottles of 3oz banana shade.

I ordered one for myself and have since then ordered 3 more for my kit to use on my clients. I love how smooth and refined the powder is and is very buildable with no caking to any areas on the face. These beautiful luxury powders come in many shades. I have ordered the buff, beige suede, banana, and the other in the mojave luxury powders. This is a must for anyone especially if you are a makeup artist like me. These are great and beautiful in pictures and in film. Get yours today!!

Love Love Love this product !!! I use it to set my under eye concealer and it last all day while keeping it crease free ! I got it in banana and it look great on dark complexions (Mac NW 45) and the shipping is unbelievably fast i ordered it and it was here 2days later I would gladly order more things from this website in the near future
Posted by Kabao – 19th Mar 2013
I have very dry skin especially in the winter so I tend to stay away from powders... but after reading all good reviews I decided to try this and if I didnt like it, it wouldve gone in my kit. Let me tell you, this is the best thing since sliced bread... super fine and soft... not cakey at all! I even use it under my eyes to set my concealer. My make up, seriously, looks flawless allllll day!! I couldnt believe it. This is absolutely a must for artists or someone who just loves makeup!
Posted by Mariana Murray – 14th Mar 2013

Do u have the banana restock yet???
Posted by Demetria – 1st Feb 2013
I purchased Banana. I'm a medium skin African American with yellow undertones and combination skin. I wear it with Makeup Forever HD foundation #177 and it stays all day. No retouches needed. It's so finely milled a little goes a long way. I highly recommend.
Posted by Michelle – 25th Jan 2013
I love this powder!! It's not heavy and is buildable. I have a little med skin tone and looks very nice. Makes foundation and concel last long.
Posted by Unknown – 11th Dec 2012
I wear MAC studio tech foundation and whenever I apply it on in the morning, it rubs off by noon and today I used the banana powder on top for the first time and Its 5pm and my face looks as fresh as it did when I put my foundation on at 7am this morning.. A MUST BUY!!!
Posted by FV – 7th Dec 2012
My combination oily skin is in love with this powder. Not only does it keep me shine free to the end of my day, it doesn\'t transfer when I sweat! I\'m so amazed by this. All my other powders melt right off and make a mess of everything my skin comes into contact with... But this Ben nye powder has the staying power I\'ve been searching for.
Posted by Unknown – 7th Dec 2012
i like it but it took too long to receive my product for some reason.
Posted by Li – 7th Dec 2012
This is my "Go To" product for highlighting my under eye area and the bridge of my nose. I use MakeUp Forever as my base foundation and this works perfectly to keep me matte for most of the day. I am VERY oily but I can't blot lightly and I'm good to go... I use the banana powder and love this product that I ordered all of the products to stock my kit. Try a small bottle first if you are scared and a little goes a long way.

I have been contemplating buying this powder for about 4months and finally I decided "It's only $7 how bad can that be"? I am so so glad that I listened to the reviews and got the powder because it's the BEST setting powder I have EVER used. I have purchased online, dept. store, drugstore, name brand, off brand and all the powders work the same. They were good for an hour and then I had to reapply. Well, not with this powder you won't. I have extremly oily skin and very acne prone even at 31yrs old and I always wear makeup to cover the acne and scarring. The powder was the answer to my prayers. I used Banana powder along with the Gaftobian warm #1 palette and they worked beautifully together. I won't ever purchase another powder or foundation from any other brand or any other site ever. Please don't ever stop making or selling these great products.

Thisis a first for me...today I used this powder on a client for the first time and during the 3+ hour shoot-NO SHINE! This on a client who insisted that she has an oily complexion! I found the powder that will be used in my kit from now on. Leaves a nice finish. I was a little hesitent to use it at first, (reason why I havn't used it up till now) because it does look quite yellow. Leaves a nice colorless finish though.
Posted by Betty Roberson – 5th Apr 2011
I am a fair-skinned African American woman, with lots of yellow undertones, (I've been classified as "olive" skinned). I read the review on this product and decided to try it. It was love at first brush....I went on light and silky soft.. it did not add color to my foundation. It gives the perfect matte finish. So since it worked that good, I decided to try it without foundation (I used the powder as my foundation). It turned out absolutely perfect. My skin looked flawless. For years I've searched for the perfect powder and foundation, now, I found both in one products...5-stars...

The Ben Nye "Banana" Visage Powder is infamously fantastic! Every good makeup artist knows after putting on liquid or cream makeup to use this as a great setting powder. The banana color is said too be a neutral color to use on all skin tones even someone with pink undertones to help even out redness or dark skin with blue undertones so not to have an ash color as some translucent powders can give the skin. Of course, this powder is great for yellow or golden undertones. It is silky soft, almost creamy in texture and doesn't apply cakey at all because the powder is milled to such a fine consistency. You would pay so much more for this kind of powder as a department store brand! In sincerity, I hope this review helps someone that may be having difficulty finding a great setting powder.
