I didn't notice much with this spay. It did seem to melt my face make-up into my skin a tiny bit better, but it wasn't something I'd get excited over. It's quite good for metallic eye shadows - again, not incredible. The scent of rose is phenomenal though.

I haven't tried any other banana powder so I wouldn't repurchase as I think I could find better stuff on the market. It works decently well but is borderline for yellow pigment needed for those of us with darker skin (NC40). Finely milled imo and good packaging for travel.

I have tried MAC Studio Fix Plus Powder (NC15) and Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder (Light Beige).
The Australis formula is better in my opinion - thicker texture, more coverage, softer feel, easier application. A lot cheaper too! $18 NZD ($65 NZD for the MAC). However it is a cheaply made product, made in Taiwan and I don’t know how many grams are in the Australis compact to compare. However I have tried many other brands of pressed powder than I’m proud to admit ..but keep going back to this one simply because it’s the best out there (and cheap!)
My only complaint is the packaging. It’s not refillable so bad for the planet. The old Australis F&F had really nice sleek black packaging (VERY similar to the MAC one). Australis changed it a few years back, I don’t like their new packaging. Its looks cheap. The see-through lid means the mirror is now below the powder and it’s fidgety going back and forth. I love MAC’s packaging 100% more. However can not spend $65 on a powder if there’s a better one on the market for a lot cheaper.
I have brought many of this product over the years & will probably continue to do so! :)

A really underwhelming mascara. All it really did for me was darken my lashes and did very little in the way of curling or lengthening, even after multiple coats. The search for a good affordable and cruelty free mascara continues.

I picked this up for cheap online, it's a great value. Six HUGE pans, nice texture, for about $8. Great colors for a subtle cool smoky eye. Shades are:Matte bone/vanilla (not white, but light enough for highlight for fair skin)Matte cool medium taupe (grayed brown)Satin-shimmer cool medium grayMatte soft berry/mauve with tiny glitter (not great color pigment)Metallic cool silverMatte deep smoky plumEasy/simple palette for a quick look, smoky or otherwise. I used the taupe in the crease, the lighter silver on the lid, vanilla under the brow. Blends easily and lasts just fine. Perhaps not up to the high pigment standards of the high end expensive palettes, but this is a still a standout for a subtle/quick look.
