I managed to find a store that sells Ben Nye products and picked this up for merely $9. Packaging isn't anything fancy, it's very basic. I like how it has a clear lid so I know what color I'm...

Hands down, this product is WORTH IT. It's affordable, easy to find (theater stores or online ordering) and most of it all, it works really, really well. First, the packaging is about the same size...

This is a great contour powder. Just a light, light hand will produce a noticable effect. It will last you forever. It isn't orangy like a bronzer. It's the perfect neutral. I love this.
