What Came In The Mail

…and I promise to update this beauty blog every single day.” So I shall.

Good morning, everyone!

It’s still too early (5:48AM) to do my Insanity workout (Day 5) and since I wasn’t meant to get a good night’s sleep (been up since forever; can’t sleep, dogs [in heat] are too noisy, and my mind keeps on racing) so I might as well blog.

Have you heard about Ben Nye’s Banana Luxury Powder?

It is, by far, my most favorite setting powder everrr. My 42gm shaker bottle is already running low (I’m halfway done) so I made sure I was one of the very first people to purchase the 85gm container when  it goes back on stock. Sure enough, about 20 minutes after purchasing my 85gm at midnight last Sunday—SOLD OUT. I didn’t even get the chance to share to my viewers that it’s back in stock and they can already order!!! That’s how awesome this baby is.

I buy this product from The Style Quarter. The 85gm container cost PHP990.00, I used the coupon code which entitled me to 20% off discount (oh yes) and the +PHP49.00 for the shipping. I only paid PHP841.00 all in all! Ordering and payment was easy peasy. The Style Quarter’s Multiply site is up to date and easy to follow!

Wednesday night came, and I received my order!!! That quick! They use Xend as their courier.

Here is the 42gm and 85gm containers side by side:

WHAT IS THE HYPE ALL ABOUT?!

1. Kim Kardashian’s makeup artists uses this powder on the celebrity herself [primarily to set Kim’s concealer]

2. Well, it’s just a really awesome product!

“Ultra-neutral powders provide superior matte and subtle finishing. Often compared to French powders with silky-fine textures. Visage Poudres are translucent with just a hint of color.”

Here’s my review on this baby: http://saytiocoartillero.blogspot.com/2012/12/ben-nye-banana-luxury-powder-ultimate.html

I use this product on both myself and my clients. I don’t regret spending PHP 841.00 on this because it is one of the best products a makeup artist/enthusiast can have in her kit.

***Product is currently out of stock, stay tuned on The Style Quarter’s site/FB page to be notified when new stocks arrive!!!***

  4. Mine just came in the mail today! Though I do love the color (as it matches my morena skin perfectly) it does, however, go all cakey on my highly porous cheek area... I did use Mac Fix+ as a base and San San Matte Foundation. Can you recommend a good and cheap base and foundation that will work with this powder? I have combination skin, mostly oily around the t-zone. Thanks so much! I am a huge fan and I follow your vlogs religiously. ;-)
