You know that ubiquitous "Ben Nye Banana Visage Poudre Luxury Powder" that Ben Nye is so famous for? This is the same shade in eyeshadow form! If you have need of counteracting any redness on your eyelids, this puppy might be for you. In my experience, Ben Nye mattes shades have a tendency to be smooth but a little powdery which makes for easier blending. This one (as I'm finding with most light shades) is more on the sheer side as well, so it may work for specific highlight areas when the "Banana Powder" is too messy to use.
