I've been on this unofficial quest to find a dupe for Ben Nye's Banana Powder. I love it, and it's a forever purchase, HG product, but good lordt is it hard to find. Of all the purchases, I'm sure I've bought some fakes too. I've tried a few different Banana Powders as dupes but neither of them hit the mark. Kat Von D's Brightening Powder is almost as good as Ben Nye's, but it's still a bit too white for me. Sadly, it looks like it's been discontinued!

My skin type

Oily and imperfect. I have fading dark acne scars and tiny icepick scars on my cheeks.

What it's supposed to do

From the brand: Brighten and smooth the under-eye area

Ingredients

Talc, Silica, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Zinc Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Phenoxyethanol, Aqua/Water/Eau, Jojoba Esters. May Contain/Peut Contenir (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140).

How I use it

How I apply banana powder:
  • Set my under eye concealer by lightly applying and brushing off; I don't cake n' bake.
  • Brighten/mattify the middle of my forehead and my chin as those spots get shiny.
  • Mattify the area around my nose

What I like about it

  • It does what it's supposed to do; it definitely brightens!
  • It's pretty finely milled and doesn't sit on top of the skin or settle in like the terrible banana powder from ColourPop

What could be better

  • It's too white for my skin tone
