Instaglam Compact Deluxe ~ Highlighting Banana Powder ~ $75.00CAD
As a dark circle lifer, I can really appreciate a good banana powder. The yellow tones help to cancel out the darkness and it really helps to brighten up under the eyes. The problem is, finding a product that won’t create a dry cakey mess underneath those pearly blues. Well, I have brown eyes, but you get what i’m putting down. 😉 One that will stay put all day, minimize the look of fine lines, and of course it has to be finely milled to give a beautiful smooth finish. Is that too much to ask?
With that said, yes, I have tried many a banana powder, from the cult classic Ben Nye banana powder (See my review here) to newer launches such as the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour powder in shade Banana, even a few drugstore brands have created their version of this miracle yellow powder. The bottom line is that not all powders are created equally and if they were, there would only be one makeup brand out there and then we’d all need a new hobby!
So how does the Rodial Banana Powder stack up? At 75 bucks I wasn’t going to give this powder an easy pass. This really had to wow me if I was going to give it my stamp of approval, especially with so many other options on the market.
I still stand by my word that a banana shade isn’t for everyone. Fortunately for me, with an olive complexion, it is a great option but for those with fair or ivory skin, I wouldn’t recommend a shade of this tone.
The texture is very light wright, and certainly doesn’t look heavy or cakey on the face. It feels like butter, and blends seamlessly and effortlessly. It is a matte powder that keeps oil at bay all day. The soft yellow tone compliments the the contour powder (see below) beautifully for the perfect contrast of shadow vs light.
This definitely is the best formula of a banana powder I have I tried to date. It is so smooth and it really helps to minimize my fine lines and it does not latch on to those pesky little dry spots I have either. The Rodial Banana Powder is a welcome addition to my collection.
Instaglam Compact Deluxe ~ Contouring Powder DARK ~ $75.00CAD
This is such a fabulous Contour Powder! Beautifully smooth, super silky, buildable and it blends like a dream! It just screams top notch quality and honestly, I wouldn’t expect anything less from Rodial.
The Rodial Contour Powder is VERY pigmented! You need only a small amount to get the job done. I also feel that this does help to offset the cost a little as it will definitely last a very long time!
This is a true contour powder as opposed to a bronzer. It has red and gray undertones with no warmth or shimmer, allowing you to create shadows wherever needed. I find the color is absolutely perfect for my olive skin tone.
Rodial Liquid Liner ~ Black ~ $29.00CAD
Honestly, I have never been blown away by a liquid liner like I have been with this little guy. It is the most intensly black I have ever come across and it really does make my eyes pop that much more! The felt tip is fairly stiff allowing you to apply a very precise line but it also has just enough flexibility to glide over and around the eye with ease.
There was no bleeding, no skipping, no flaking, and no smudging. I am able to apply this liner faster than any other I have ever tried! It is simply amazing! I HIGHLY recommend you give this liner a try. You will not be disappointed. As well, with a reasonable price of $29, this liner simply can’t be beat!
It truly takes a lot for me to be really be blown away and I absolutely was with all of these products, so I had to do a giveaway! See below for Details!!
