Pressed Powders -Ben Nye -Color Cake Foundation


I have this in a very dark brown-black (magicake aqua) colour to use as cake eyeliner as Olivia from Maquillageobscura said this worked better for the purpose than their actual marketed cake eyeliner. It’s quite good although takes time to get used to- it does give you time to buff it a bit to soften.

Loose Powders -Ben Nye -Bella Luxury Powder: Buff (formerly known as Visage Poudre Luxury Powder)

Excellent loose powder, pretty much invisible on the skin. Price-quality ratio is very good. I prefer a slightly yellower shade, but Buff is very translucent so it should work for most people with fair skin. The only reason I would not buy this again is that the "light banana" shade works better for me.

Blush -Ben Nye -Creme Rouge

on 2/14/2019 5:04:00 PM


I have this in the shade dusty mauve which shows up a beautiful subtle soft pink on my NC 48 skin It drys down to a soft matte finish and blends beautiful with my strippling brush. You could also use fingers or makeup sponge. It layers well with other products and it very pigmented. I will surely be trying more shades. My favorite part about this product is the texture. This has a creme to powder finish.

Loose Powders -Ben Nye -Bella Luxury Powder: Cameo (formerly known as Visage Poudre Luxury Powder)

on 1/10/2019 1:57:00 PM


Ben Nye's loose Cameo Luxury Powder is actually the best loose powder I have ever used. I'm sold on it because it is super fine and velvety. It sets my makeup all day long without looking cakey. There is no noticeable scent when applying this powder. It isn't as expensive as you may initially think because you receive a large quantity. Once you buy the 0.92 oz / 26 gram $13.50 dome container, you only have to buy the 3 oz / 85 gram refills in the future. This large refill currently goes for $22.50. The drug store loose powder containers are much smaller by comparison. This luxury powder comes in several shades. The cameo best seller shade suits light to light-medium, cool complexions. It is best to cover any blemishes with any skin-matching cream concealer or stick foundation, then set your makeup with this powder. As others have written, this loose powder is not to cover blemishes. Use a pressed mineral powder foundation if you are looking for coverage in powder form (such as, Neutrogena mineral sheers powder foundation).
