MakeUpMania & Ben Nye Neutral Set Translucent Face Powder Review

February 4, 2012 at 12:38 AM

My order from MakeUpMania has arrived today!

They followed my instruction to put ‘FRAGILE‘ on it, which is good 🙂 The box arrived in perfect condition. I was scared to order at first since this is my first time ordering from them but since they have the cheapest option for shipping, I decided to gamble and order anyway.

It was surprisingly fast! The shipping cost USD$9.99 using USPS First Class International Mail and shipped from Denver, Colorado. Now from all the orders I had with, normal standard international shipping usually would take 2 weeks. So I didn’t expect this order would come in less than a week. I have been searching for a place to buy Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Face Powder for a long time. I’m running out of the powder so I’ve been desperate.

This powder, to me, is THE BEST setting powder ever. If you don’t know Ben Nye, it’s a brand that focus on special effects and theatrical makeup so of course when you perform under harsh lights, you would get all sweaty. The best thing about this setting powder is that it has antiperspirant. It protects your makeup from melting when you sweat! I have had makeups on for a whole day and before I found out about this powder, my makeup would melt and become cakey and shit. Since I have oily face, it gets worse. This powder helps my makeup to stay on without melting from the sweat. It’s the best thing ever.

And this little bottle of 1.75oz or 49gm lasted me 1 1/2 years! It only cost USD$4.

I was surprised when I opened the box. They wrapped my stuff in this zebra pattern paper. It’s SO CUTE. I love it. should learn how to protect items from MakeUpMania! It had 2 bubble pockets so double protection, PLUS they wrapped my powder bottle with bubble wrap so A+ on protection.

Yay finally have my face powder. I’ve been worried that I couldn’t buy one in time before mine runs out. I also ordered 24 pieces sponge wedges. It’s hard to find this wedge here. All local supermarkets and even beauty stores would carry the normal square sponge. This one has soft texture too. Love it. Both arrived in perfect condition. Overall I’m very happy with MakeUpMania and my order. Will definitely order again from them provided that they’re still in business.
