ITEM OF THE WEEK is a weekly series on Stained Couture that highlights a product I’m currently loving. This week: Dermablend Illuminating Banana Powder.
One of my favorite things to do is find something that makes me realize I’ve been wrong. For instance, one thing that I never thought existed was a banana powder that I could use under my eyes that would make my already yellow undertone skin look more yellow. I know, it might sound like I should want that, but it doesn’t look as good as it sounds. Well, it didn’t use to, but I now I know that a there is a magical banana powder out there that works perfectly for me and most skin tones. Ladies and gents, Dermablend’s Banana Powder is that magical powder. If you haven’t heard and/or tried this powder, but need a amazing banana powder; keep reading.
For years, I always wanted to find a banana powder to bake my undereye concealer that didn’t wash me out. Recently, I decided to try the Dermablend banana powder. First of all, I didn’t realize that Dermablend made a banana powder. However, I knew, tried and loved some their foundations and I think I tried their translucent powder years. Therefore, I felt confident in dropping $30 for this banana powder.
The texture of this powder feels soft, smooth, and silky; all good ‘s’ adjectives! I apply it with a dry slanted makeup sponge (yes, I’m one of those people) and gently pat it on the area under my eyes. It applies and looks so smooth, as soon as it applies. After waiting a couple of minutes, I dust off the residual powder that didn’t set. Plus, what does stay, sets like a dream and doesn’t cake or flake.
However, what really makes this banana powder a must-have is that it looks great on most complexions. What makes this possible is that is contains pearl pigments, which gives it that illuminating, brightening effect. It warms up your face without it looking dry or ashy, which is always the goal for any face powder.
If you want to try a pretty awesome banana powder that warms up your skin and makes your eyes look brighter, I can’t recommend this powder enough. You can purchase this powder at most retailers that carry Dermablend products and on Dermablend website.
