Sephora Bright Set Loose Finishing Powder in Banana

I think by now everyone has heard about the infamous Ben Nye Banana Powder.

It is a fantastic powder for those with warmer skin tones and is most commonly used to brighten the skin.

I recently found out Sephora has come out with their own “Banana” powder and I wanted to see how it would work. 


$16 for 0.30 oz


What it is:
An illuminating, shine-reducing pressed powder that can brighten and/or set makeup.

What it does:
Get the power to brighten and set makeup in one formula. This multipurpose powder can be used to set makeup or brighten targeted areas. The universally flattering shade works for most skintones.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
This product can be used with a sponge or fluffy brush to achieve desired setting powder or brightening effect. Traditionally known as “banana powder,” this formula works on most complexion tones without looking either shimmery or ashy.

So…I used this both under my eyes (to set my conceal and brighten) and all over my face as a setting powder.

I will just cut to the chase…..I am not a fan.

It does fine as an all-over setting powder, but it really didn’t do much to brighten my skin. 

Since that’s what I was looking for, this product is just not for me.

This comes housed in a sifter pot which is fantastic for traveling and making sure unnecessary spillage does not occur. 

This is a fairly smooth powder that blends easily into the skin and is unscented.

Overall, I’m unimpressed.  To be fair, it’s really not a bad product.  Just not what I wanted it to be.

I think there are better powders to use under the eye area.

If you guys have any suggestions for me on great powders to use under the eyes please leave them below!

Have a beautiful and wonderful day!
