ashalovesbeautyyy: nice video i just recently did a video on both these products please check out my channel
Rita Zambou: Thank God i found your channel this review really helped but do u know any online store that i could purchse the topaz powder from ?
KhadineMUA: If your actual shade is close to the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Caramel, then the Ben Nye Topaz powder would definitely work for setting your concealer...but it wouldn't be a highlight (it would just match your color).
MissMadamKay: HI, great video! I actually just bought ben nye banana powder and only use it to set under my eyes but it's leaving a white cast in photos. I usually wear nc45 or caramel in nars creamy radiant concealer. I was really hoping it would work but it hasn't, I also use to use bobbi brown sheer finish loose powder in pale yellow but its way too expensive for me now :( . Do you think ben nye topaz would work for setting my concealer? Thank You !!!
KhadineMUA: Thank you! I'm wearing NYX Cinnamon blush and NYX Ultra Pearl Mania loose pigment in "Mink Pearl" as a highlight.
Mimi8402: You look so pretty, I love your makeup, what color blush and cheek highlighter are you wearing?
sexycovergirldiva: I didn't buy they banana that color way too light for me. I got the beige suedue because it's darker
KhadineMUA: Sorry to hear that, some products are just not great for flash photography. Also, it could be that the powder is too light for you (even as a highlight). Contrary to popular belief, Banana powder is NOT the answer for everybody :) ....Try something with more warmth to it...like the Topaz Powder.
Maria Huggins: hey darling.lovely video but i have a question i am a nw 45 and i dont have the ben nyw bannana powder but i have the ruby kisses bannana powder an i apply it to highlight and everytime when i use my phone flash to take pis it leave a HORRIble white cast and it just look awful but in person it look great also i am sure to spen lots of time blending so i dont know whats the problem.
KhadineMUA: Hey! You do have a point....I'll keep this in mind the next time I record.
Tamaha Chavannes: Hey I looked for a video like this for two day I think u should redo a whole video on jow to use the setting powder beacause no ome talks about that onhere and u said what I need to here but I need to see it pleaaaaaaaaaase tutorial usssssss!!!!! Ur girl instagram #mz_haitiladi
KhadineMUA: If you want to contour, Topaz won't work for 2 reasons: 1) It's not dark enough and (2) It's translucent. I like the Sleek Contour Kit in Medium...it's the perfect shade to contour for my complexion...use that or something similar. You want to make sure that your contour powder is 2 to 3 shades darker than you.
ykukuia: I'm about your skin tone. To contour and highlight under the eye and t zone areas is Topaz a good product? I want to purchase a new contour color because my current one is too ashy.
KhadineMUA: To highlight? You can totally use the Banana Powder (just do so sparingly).
Monique Cade: Which color should I use for nc 50?
KhadineMUA: You're welcome :)
Belle Deesse: Thank you for your reply. You're simply too sweet
KhadineMUA: I'm not familiar with the Sienna powder, but I would suggest you try the Chestnut powder...it should work as a match to set your foundation. Sorry for the super late reply! :)
KhadineMUA: Hey there...if your normal shade is actually close to NW 40, I'd say go with the Banana Powder. If you have a deeper complexion (like say Kelly Rowland,) I'd suggest the Topaz Powder. I'm not too familiar w/the Camel powder, so I can't comment on it. By the way, none of these powders give you a "glow" per se...if anything, they actually help to mattify the skin. Hope this helps :)
Belle Deesse: I meant OVER my concealer. Lol sorry
Belle Deesse: I love this review but with me being an Nw 40 concealer can you make any suggestions on which Ben nye powder I can use under my concealer to brighten and give me that glow please. I'm still skeptical on which to purchase. Between camel banana and topaz for that glow and bright flawless look.
KhadineMUA: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish powders can definitely be used to set the highlight! I don't think the Ben Nye powders are necessarily better, it's just that they have more color options (eg. Banana powder is more yellow, Topaz powder is more burnt yellow/slightly orange...and there are others that may have a more pink-ish undertone etc.)
KhadineMUA: I would probably go with Topaz for you!
Teanna Moore: Thank you for doing this! I am a NW 45 and have been wondering about these powders. Do you know anything about the sienna powder (as far as using it as a setting powder for my skin tone)?
Sainabou Jeng: Im an nw45 mac n wondering which u recomend for setting the under eye area? Banana or tropaz? Thanks!
KhadineMUA: You're very welcome! :)
Alesia Hall: Thanks for the video, very informative as others have echoed!
KhadineMUA: You're welcome! Glad you found it informative! :)
taytay mone': You are very informative, thank you !
AClassofQuinn: I have those colors, they are definitely beautiful. I use them to set my undereye and like the Topaz for all over as well.
KhadineMUA: Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it :)
cara reed: Great review !
KhadineMUA: Hi, I can't really give you an answer without knowing what you look like...and I've never seen "pretty in pink."
10Edwina10: Hi I want to get the translucent power but not sure which color to get, am mexican wld pretty in pink or topez work?
TheRew413: Thank you. :)
KhadineMUA: I'm not sure Topaz would be the BEST option for you (to set all over the face) if your undertones are more red....I think "Chestnut" would be the better option (I haven't used it, but based on what I've seen).
TheRew413: Hi :) I'm a nw45, would topaz and chestnut be a good option? I want the banana powder
KhadineMUA: Hi, sorry...I'm not familiar with those.
maatimn: I was considering purchasing the camel or olive sand ben nye translucent powder, I believe it is from the Mojave "collection". Do you know anything about these colors?
KhadineMUA: No prob. Thanks for watching :)
DeesWigsandStyles: Love the review, I will definitely try this!!!!!! Thanks luv!!!!!
KhadineMUA: Glad you enjoyed the review....and thanks for the compliment! :)
TheMzSimon: Great review. I've seen so many youtube vids of mua using the banana powder. I've always wondered what the hype was? You look amazing.
KhadineMUA: Hahaha! Thank you! I don't think I look like her, but that's a compliment :)
Gwendolynn Douglas: You remind me Gabby Union *random comment lol but you do...I am a new MUA well getting back into it and I like your channel!! xoxo
KhadineMUA: I purchased these at Alcone...if you don't live in NYC, you can order from their website.
saka2ya: where do you purchase your ben nye from?
MissSweetChar: I want to try the Topaz because I find MSF breaks me out. I have the Banana powder and love it :))
anglgrl384: If I'm NW47 you think that the banana powder would be too light for me?
KhadineMUA: Hey there! You can find it online via websites such as CameraReadyCosmetics, Friends Beauty Supply, and Alcone. Good luck!
