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.
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.
