Anonymous wondered what I would consider my staple products from the Ben Nye product line.
I LOVE their powder eyeshadows, especially the Grande Lumiere range (you can check out my video reviews of 12 of them here, here, and here/here.) The matte ones are fantastic as well, and I think all of them prove formidable competition for MAC shadows, especially considering pricing. Their cake eyeliners are also amazing (staying power is… stunning), and their loose face powders are some of the best I’ve ever found (they control oil like no other, set makeup beautifully, and the Banana Visage powder is amazing at evening out a ruddy complexion). The “clown makeup” are actually fantastic cream colors, and although the actual color ones may be too intense for daily wear, the white is amazing as an eyeliner, base (think of a MAC Paint Pot), and blending medium. Finally, if you like glitter and shimmer, make sure to check out their Sparklers (simply the best, most evenly cut, eye-safe glitter I’ve ever come across) and the MagiColor Paints (think of MUFE Aquarelle, but a million times cheaper). These are my definite must-haves, but in all honesty, every single product I’ve come across in this line beats out the competition, so feel free to explore the rest (and definitely let me know how it is!!)
All Ben Nye products can be bought from International Fun Shop.
