I realize I am a bit late to the party with this one but oh my goodness! This powder is amazing!!! Australis Banana Powder is fantastic at hiding those pesky dark under eyes (which I sadly suffer from). It is a soft finely milled yellow powder so I have found the best way to use it is to dip your flat brush into the pan (a little goes a long way) and gently pat under your eyes or wherever you wish to brighten. I find the product works best when you pat it on but don’t rub it in. I then like to set it with my favorite setting spray (NYX). I have been using Banana Powder under my eyes the past week and even on boiling hot days the powder has not budged! It is incredible! The price is right too, and yet you would expect to pay more for such a high quality product. Highly highly recommend!!

This powder is great to use. the only problem to use this is that banana powder tends to put a weird cast on my face. it still is an amazing product to use just not what i look for. is in great packaging. I use it under my eyes and it hides my dark circles. Makes my face look very flawless.30 days ago
Yas Queen!!!! I love it! 🥰 It suits my color and hides the dark circles under my eyes with just the use of a brush. I feel and look fresh with this powder and since it suits my color, it’s as if I was just fresh without a hint that I used any product at all. Thank you Australis! BTW, I am tempted to try out more of your products 🤩🤩🤩🤩about 1 month ago
Love love love. It’s so soft on my skin and leaves my makeup look flawless. I didn’t really notice the scent too much but I don’t mind that. Worth the buy . Nice for night glam and sets so good when concealer has been applied under my eyes 😍. Will recommend this.about 1 month ago
I have been looking for a good dupe for Ben Nye’s Banana powder and I stumbled upon this product here in BMNL. Purchased the mini version and I was in love! This powder is affordable and worth every penny. Same effects with Ben Nye’s powder at a really affordable price! Gives a natural, matte-finish, ang lakas maka-fresh! I always hoard whenever this goes on sale!about 2 months ago
Ever since I tried this for the first time before, my makeup routine now feels incomplete without it. I like how smooth it is and it really gives a nice finish to my entire look. Whether I bake with this or just use this as a regular powder, this product is a must.about 2 months ago
First off, I love that this is cruelty-free! Second off, I really like how it doesn’t give me flashback in pictures and doesn’t cake up my face. My face tends to get really oily so not quite sure about it’s mattifying power there 😅 it may really work for some, but I would have to touch up/blot my face after a few hours. But other than that, everything else is 👍🏻.2 months ago
