Ben Nye Cameo Visage Poudre and Foundation Samples Review

I was contacted again by TheStyleQuarter for a sponsored review. :)
TheStyleQuarter carries high quality brands like Ben Nye, NYX, Sonia Kashuk, LORAC, Rock & 
Republic, E.L.F and Urban Decay on a very fair price.

MORE ABOUT THE BRAND:
Ben Nye Sr. began formulating his makeup in 1957 - ten years before his retirement from 20th century fox. His remarkable artistic talents and sense of color allowed him to design memorable characters as well as makeup for the big screen. By the time he left Fox, his ethnic foundaions and unique colors had become standards in the Makeup Department.

So here's what Ritchelle sent me.
Ben Nye Cameo Visage Poudre full size
Ben Nye Sample Foundation in Rice Paper (TW-20)
Ben Nye Sample Foundation in Lite Beige (L2)


Here's how it looks like when I opened it from the package.
Obviously, safely secured with many layers of yellow tissue paper.

I'll start reviewing the full size one. :)

PRODUCT INFO:
  • Ultra-neutral powders provide superior matte and subtle finishing. Often compared to French powders with silky-fine textures. Visage Poudres are translucent with just a hint of color.
  • Size and ingredients on the photo.
  • More info here: (link)
  • PRICE: P520.00 approx $12.09

WHAT I LOVE:
  • Makes my make up matte for more than 4 hours which is quite impressive for my oily skin. I use this as a setting powder especially after using my BBcream.
  • No shimmer what so ever.
  • It stays put, doesn't dry my skin out, and is fragrance-free.
  • This powder works for my skin tone perfectly. This has just a hint of flesh tone color that blends in undetectably on my skin. But I think this would fit fair-olive skin tones only.
  • Affordable for its quantity and quality. So many product for P520.00.
  • Blends easily. I apply this with my ELF studio powder brush.
  • Super fast local delivery and customer service.
WHAT I HATE:
  • I don't like the packaging. Kind of messy and it's a little too big to bring it with me in case I want to retouch while out. I suggest to get some of the product and put it in a sampler jar to bring it with you.
  • Contains Paraben.

MORE ABOUT THE CREME FOUNDATIONS:
Ben Nye Creme Foundations are remarkably diverse to subtly blend with all complexions, or to theatrically transform performers into characters. It offers superb quality, intense pigmentation and distinctive color selection while it provides Smooth consistency and effortless blending.


PRODUCT INFO:
  • Lite (L) Series - Soft, natural shades impart a warm tan-peach tone from very fair to subtle tan-rose. Suitable for actors with fair skin tones.
  • .5oz/14gm. Expect 25-75 applications.
  • More info here: (link)
  • PRICE: P560.00 approx $13
(Ben Nye Sample Foundation in Lite Beige (L-2))

WHAT I LOVE:
  • Very opaque. 
  • It covers amazing and when you set it (with Cameo Visage), it sure does stay in place.
  • Will work great using a damp sponge to lessen the heavy-ness of the product.
  • Stays on 5-8 hours without touch up for normal skin. (I tried this with my cousin coz It doesn't suit my skin tone)
WHAT I HATE:
  • It has a pinky-rose tone which I think is suitable for fair skin tones. 
  • Kind of heavy for everyday use.

PRODUCT INFO:
  • Twenty (TW) Series - Light olive to deep warm-browns. This series complements brunettes, olive and brown skin tones.
  • .5oz/14gm. Expect 25-75 applications.
  • More info here: (link)
  • PRICE: P560.00 approx $13
(Ben Nye Sample Foundation in Rice Paper (TW-20))

WHAT I LOVE:
  • I personally like this shade coz this really suit my skin tone really well. Not on my hands but on my face. LOL. I dunno why my hands and face doesn't have the same skin tone. This product helped me match my skin tones (from my face, neck and hands) really well. :D
  • It's heavy and very opaque but I like it coz I have so many imperfections on my face. Dark spots! :/
  • It works almost like a concealer.
  • Very affordable for its quality!
WHAT I HATE:
  • Not meant to be worn for the whole day. As from what I've researched Ben Nye it is meant for theatrical makeup so it really does give full coverage on your face. But this also means that you need to wash it after 8 hours or more coz this might clog your pores like none other. 
RATING:
  • Ben Nye Cameo Visage Poudre full size 5/5
    Ben Nye Sample Foundation in Rice Paper (TW-20) 4/5
    Ben Nye Sample Foundation in Lite Beige (L2) 5/5
OVER ALL:
  • I love how the powder and rice paper works on my skin. I'm thinking of getting the full size of the foundation after I finish my current product from my makeup bag.

Do you love wearing full coverage foundations too? :)
