When it comes to beautiful makeup products and even more beautiful packaging. It doesn’t get much better than Rodial. Their skincare and makeup range is to die for. And while I may be a little late to the game, I’ve finally tried the much hyped, and much loved, Rodial Instaglam Compact Deluxe Banana Powder. If you’re not familiar with this powder, or you’re just as late to the game as I am. Here is why you need this in your makeup collection.
Although it’s technically a highlighter, it’s way more than a regular highlighter. It’s a mattifying powder that can be used to set your makeup, or contour your face by using the ‘baking’ makeup trend. You can use it after applying foundation to prevent it from setting into any fine lines. Or to reduce the appearance of an oily complexion. Or you can use it as a highlight to enhance your facial contours with a mattified finish.
Personally I like to use this powder to set my concealer and foundation in place and ensure my dark circles are well and truly hidden. I just apply a generous layer to my under eye area, wait for the powder to ‘bake’ and then lightly dust off any excess. I find the powder is incredibly lightweight to wear and stays in place throughout the day without caking or looking too heavy. And as the powder is yellow, it seems to suit most skin tones. I’ve also found this powder is brilliant at reducing redness – which I suffer with quite badly.
So is it worth the hype? I think so. It’s not cheap at £52 but I do love the results I get. Plus the packaging is just so beautiful!
The Rodial Instaglam Compact Deluxe Banana Powder costs £52 and is available from Harvey Nichols.
