I love this product and use it every day. It’s good for my oily skin, but my oil still comes through. Makes my skin look bright, with the yellow tint. I love the look it gives to my face and would recommend it to other pale women, like myself LOL!

I got this for sale at Ulta for $2.50 a few weeks ago and have been using it to set my undereyes ever since! I have fair skin and for some reason I was nervous to try this. I've never used a banana powder before, but boy am I glad I did! The color gives a beautiful lift to the skin, and helps brighten areas applied in a subtle but gorgeous way. Don't apply too much or it'll look cakey. 🙂

This is a great powder for brightening. Wow! It's so affordable too! This is one I highly recommend trying. It's not too drying, cakey, or crepey. This is a great quality item for a super low price. It really brightens well too! I definitely recommend adding this to your collection/ kit.

I use this everyday over my liquid foundation to make a matte finish on my makeup! I tend to be a little on the oily side, so this helps with that problem. It’s very light and goes on super translucent!

I was looking for a powder that is not itchy and semi matte. This product is so good for me. Been using it for 2 weeks no and I don't have any complain about it. With the price I could say you got more than what you pay. I use this in baking in my under eyes and smile area as well as a setting powder after putting all the make up. I also use this whenever I feel that I put too much blush on. Overall I can recommend this product.

This powder is amazing! I can’t believe it’s so cheap. It brightens and sets the makeup on your under eyes so beautifully. It’s very fine and light weigh. It’s also not overly yellow which I think it’s a plus (it doesn’t darken my under eye area since I’m very pale). Will definitely be repurchasing it!

Why did I sit on this so long??? This is amazing. I have heard of it, but I didn’t know how amazing it is. I only use it under my eye area. I tried it down my nose, but it was weird. I put it under my eyes after I’m done with my make up. And I also powder my concealer lightly with regular powder first, just like normal. This is a $4.99 miracle! Try it, you will look awake, more youthful and more ‘finished’ than ever.

If I make sure to get enough on it does not crease. Sometimes I don't quite get enough and it will crease.
