Ernest's Couture sells Sasha Buttercup
By: Ernest's Couture
Sasha Buttercup is avilable at Ernest's Couture.
BUTTERCUP is the AMAZON #1 Best-Seller in face powder and is ideal for medium to dark skin tones. BUTTERCUP LIGHT is recommended for light to medium skin tones. They can be used to highlight, set/bake your concealer or as an all-over face powder. They do not give off a white cast or turn ashy in bright lighting or photos. They absorb oil, reduce shine and keep your face matte for hours.
This powder is SUPER soft and fine milled. It feels velvety. It melts into the skin. The Ben Nye Banana Powder is a beautiful powder but is on the chalkier side. I think we also have to remind ourselves that Ben Nye is STAGE makeup. The Buttercup powder may be more suitable for the everyday makeup wearer, someone who may not be as skilled at blending as a professional artist.
The bendability of this product alone will make you want to replace your other setting powders in general, not just the Ben Nye.
In regards to the final product, they both look about the same. However, as I noted earlier because the banana powder is a bit on the chalkier it has the tendency to read ashier and cakey when not blended properly.
Overall I truly believe Buttercup is more user friendly and has a softer touch, and you won't have to worry about throwing elbows to try to purchase this one at Ernest's Couture.
