Hey my pretty ladies,
Hope all is good at your end! Today, I am reviewing W7 Banana Dreams Loose Face Powder, which has become my go to setting powder. It is like my HG powder, which makes my skin look so matte and natural. Read on for more details.
Banana Dreams is a finely milled, translucent powder with a pale yellow tone. Containing silica, Banana Dreams is the ideal product for setting make-up, camouflaging undertones and contouring without giving off a cakey look. The powder can be used under the eyes for highlighting purposes as well as the T- Zone. Perfect for all skin types and tones, it’s become a must-have in many make-up bags!
My Experience with W7 Banana Dreams Loose Powder:
Like most other loose powders, this one comes in a basic tub packaging with a matte black lid. The product name is stylishly embossed on the cap and the back of the tub houses some other product details. It is a pretty basic and fuss-free packaging. It has a second lid which has holes to let out the powder stored inside, kind of a sieve really. It has a transparent plastic over the sieve area but it lost its adhesiveness and I threw it, so while travelling the powder tends to come out. Need to be careful while opening to prevent wastage.
Banana powder came into vogue as a baking product, it literally changed the makeup baking product. Ben Nye Banana Powder became the cult favorite, but some equally good and affordable options like Makeup Revolution Banana Powder followed.
It is called Banana Dreams powder as it has a yellow tint to it. Unlike other loose powders, this one matches perfectly with my tanned skin. Setting powders even which are translucent often tend to look slightly ashy on my skin. This finely milled loose powder on the other hand serves a lot of purposes. My favorite way to use it is as an all over face powder, which mattifies skin and gives a flawless natural finish. Never does it highlight dry patches or sink in pores. If you have very large pores (like I have on my nose sides) you might not want to skip your primer.
It is great for nullifying any incorrect undertones of your base makeup. I have used wrong foundation shade which looked grey, but with this, I could make it work. I like it for baking my under-eye area, as it doesn’t crease or flake. The pale yellow tone is great for Indian skin tones where white or pink powders may not complement well.
It doesn’t have any coverage, so keep that in mind. It’s talc like texture and easy blending ability has made it a new favorite.

- Natural finish.
- Finely milled.
- Doesn’t cling to dry patches or accentuate pores.
