5 stars out of 5

Ofra Pressed Banana Powder Compact ($16) is a matte banana yellow shaded powder that can be used to set concealer and brighten up darkness under eyes (use it on your face too if you want but for me it’s all about the eyes!).

I picked this up for $8 bucks during an Ulta sale and now I can’t recall how I loved my life without it. As you may know my two ride or die concealer setting powders are Ben Nye Banana Powder and Hard Candy Sheer Envy Bake, Brighten & Set Loose Finishing Powder but they have some competition now with Ofra Pressed Banana Powder Compact!

This is actually ridiculously small for a pressed powder at 0.14 oz in size! It’s also quite expensive for that price at $16 but I’d totally buy it again and again and again! I just happened to luck out and got it on sale but I’d dish the $16 out for it.

It comes in a small square compact with a mirror. The compact actually resembles an eyeshadow! It’s quite small! But I don’t mind as I feel I have a bit more control over how much I use because no one wants to look ghastly with a bunch of powder under their eyes.

Years ago, many years ago, someone told me to set my concealer with powder and I was all “ABSOLUTELY NOT!” I have drier eyes and the idea of powder under my eyes makes me cringe in horror. But I found the right brush, I tried it, and I’ll never go back. I use a Bobbi Brown Brush which looks a like like a MAC 224 but on a much smaller scale. This brush picks up just the right amount of powder to gently dust under my eyes to set my concealer. This was game changing for me as it not only allows my concealer to wear longer but it also brightens up my entire eye area.

So yeah, the idea of Ofra Pressed Banana Powder Compact being matte sounds scary for someone with dry eyes but believe me a little goes a long way at brightening up your eye area and setting it for all day wear.

This particular shade works great for me. It’s a bright banana yellow that runs a bit cooler compared to darker banana shades I’ve used but still works a treat. It’s a bit powdery but silky and applies and blends perfectly. It wears well over my cream concealer and doesn’t crease or cake. It provides a nice brightening finish without looking pasty!

I’d totally recommend and purchase again!

Love this!

    I wonder if this would work to cover up redness? Bought the Clinique redness powder once & wasn’t impressed with it. It was the same shade as this. Heard of this brand, but never used it. Now im more inclined to try it after reading this review.

    This has been on my to try list for awhile. Do you have a link to the BB brush? I need a good brush as I always over-powder my under eyes and look a mess.

      I wish I could! It came with a concealer palette and they don’t actually offer it for separate purchase! It was in a set from QVC. 🙁

    Have you tried the essence pressed banana powder? I’m wondering how it compares to this one!
