I’m sure everyone and their mother has heard of Ben Nye Luxury Powder in the shade Banana. Supposedly this is what a lot of makeup artists use on celebrity clients to set concealer and highlight. Unfortunately, I find the Banana powder to be too chalky in texture, it doesn’t really leave a luxurious finish on the skin. Because of this, I’ve been on the search for the perfect yellow setting powder.
I find that yellow toned powders work really well on my skin color. I can use it as a under eye powder and a regular setting powder as well. This is why I really wanted to find a quality powder but in a yellow tone.
I am so happy I found the brand Sacha Cosmetics. It is a brand based out of Trinidad and is specifically geared towards women with exotic skin tones (yay!!).
The Sacha Cosmetics Buttercup Setting powder is by far the most amazing powder I have come across. It is so smooth and creamy, it glides onto my skin. I love how the color is a lovely yellow shade that is pigmented and not chalky.
The swatch on the top is Sacha Cosmetics: You can tell how it is finer milled and an overall better powder.
The bottom swatch is Ben Nye Banana Powder: You can see how the texture is chalky and almost grainy. The particles of the powder are visible… not what I would call a luxury setting powder (sorry not sorry).
What are your favorite setting powders?
