Review: Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo

You may or may not have heard of the Ben Nye Luxury Powders, as it's gained some traction as being the one which Kim Kardashian uses. She uses the shade "Banana" which is quickly becoming Ben Nye most sought after product. However Ben Nye products have been known in Hollywood land long before the Kardashians dating back to classics like the King & I.

The Luxary Powders were once upon a time called Visage Poudre Luxry are the brands neural translucent powders with just a hint of color. They are micro milled and blend incredibly well, plus there is a large range so it shouldn't be to difficult to find a skin match. I picked up Cameo; a translucent pink toned beige.  The famous Banana shade is quite similar but more yellow toned then pink.

The main idea is that the powders brighten, neutralize and set your makeup like nobody's business. Indeed for that they are certainly worth the hype, I am however not a fan of the package as I find it difficult to control the amount of powder released resulting in a big powder cloud and is also hard to get excess powder back into the bottle. I feel that a wider more traditional powder container would be a bit easier to work with and I'm in the process of trying to find a appropriate container to decant mine into.

For Luxury powders of such re known they are actually surprisingly inexpensive and you can buy them from Australian based websites. I picked mine up from faceagency and it arrived in under a week for only $18 (the price has gone up a little since i got it). But it's going to take me an age to finish the bottle (42g) so well worth an investment.
