Professional Grade: Ben Nye Media Pro Poudre Palette (Bella & Mojave)

Since I’m consolidating my kit, it was only natural that I take a gander at the Ben Nye Powder Palettes. There are two palettes, and each one features eight colors, that cover just about every shade range.

The Bella palette addresses fair to medium skin tones, and Mojave addresses warm to dark skin tones.

Mojave Palette

The powders are very translucent. The lighter shades can actually work on a warmer skin tone to highlight. I haven’t found any significant flashback with any of the lighter colors. The lightest shade in the Mojave palette is actually about one shade too dark for me (I’m MAC NC42-43 for comparison), but all of the powders work in perfect harmony. You can easily contour and highlight an entire face using just the powders. They are light and easy to blend. So far, so very good. I’m impressed.

    I really want the Mojave Palette, I have the Americano pan which I use to contour and I’ve very impressed with it!

    • I really like them both. The Mojave palette is REALLY versatile, you can even go beyond the face and do a quick makeup with the darker colors as crease and liner to define the eye area.

    I think I want two of the Mojave palettes. One for myself and one for my kit. LOL.

    They look really great. I already have their loose powders and I love them!

    • They’re definitely worth it, in my opinion. I even use a stiff buffing brush to make a ‘powder foundation’. The powders give a medium coverage… totally excellent.

        Really?! (@ them being a medium coverage and also being used as powder foundation) Then, I’m really getting this! Thanks for the tip! 🙂

  3. You’re welcome! I hope you love is as much as I do! 🙂
