Even though I'm no makeup expert I've been an artist of the painting and sketching sort my entire life. My early exposure to color theory, theater/theater makeup, and continual "experimentation" allowed me to discover "banana" or yellow powders as finishing powders decades ago. I always got a kick out of purchasing my good old Ben Nye Banana powder, awkward "shaker" bottles and all, for pennies compared to other powders. In addition to yellow as a primer or a base, peach tones even out my skin by muting discolorations or darkness under my eyes. I can get pretty "sallow" without coloring from the sun, so I use lavender color corrector when I want to go "lighter" and peach color corrector when I need warmth, and to cover melasma. When I use color-correcting finishing powders I can use them over foundation to set it and neutralize discoloration, or use it as a touchup powder any time. Numeric Proof powder is matte, but it has the texture of velvet. It's not cakey or heavy, and, best of all, it comes in corrective colors. As much as I love my Ben Nye Banana in loose powder, every time I've purchased it in a compact the powder has broken up and shattered into a mess. NUmeric Proof powder is portable, and durable. I have Peach, Golden Peach, and Banana, and I love each one. Lately I'm finding myself using the Peach the most. The powder appears to be extremely light in the compact, but it's so sheer and light it doesn't look pale or white on my skin. Everything about this product is top notch quality and for me it's thrown T.LeClerc out of the game.
