So today im going to review the Ben Nye translucent face powder in ‘Fair’.
I bought it at IMATS almost 2 weeks ago and have used it every day since to test it out as ive only heard great things about Ben Nye powders. I was originally going to buy the all-famous Banana powder. However the lovely lady at PAM said that The fair shade would suit my skin better, so I trusted her opinion. However I do want to try that powder too.
As background info, I have very oily skin. So when I saw that the main ingredient was Talc I jumped at the chance to try it as Talc absorbs oil well. I can definitely see a difference from using my Rimmel stay matte powder to the Ben Nye powder. At the end of the day, my skin still gets oily, but the Ben Nye is definitely an improvement.
It comes in a plastic tub which isnt that convenient for travelling, But it can be done! Especially as im so clumsy, its very easily to spill it.
I knock that sh*t everywhere.
You get 85g of product for £8.15 with Ben Nye.
where as you get 14g of product for £3.99 with rimmel’s stay matte powder.
The thing I like about the Ben Nye translucent powder is that it still comes in 4 shades, yep….even though its translucent. Thats because sometimes translucent powders can look ashy on darker skins, and a bit pasty on light skin. I think its a really good idea personally.
Overall, I love this powder. Its definitely worth it. Its so fine and doesnt go cakey at all. I love the price, colour, EVERYTHANG (about it). If I had to fault it in any way, it would be the tub its in. Its not really that practical for on-the-go use. But Im sure we can all take a deep breath and get over it.
