Bake , Brighten , and Set with GOSH Banana Powder!

Hi everyone, hope you are all doing fine! Today’s blog post will be quite interesting, yes  “Bake, Brighten & Set” with Gosh cosmetics Banana Powder.

Without further due, lets jump straight into the review.

WHAT IS IT ? Gosh , Prime ‘N’ Set Powder. ( Follow @gosharabia ) to keep updated!

This powder is a 2 in 1. It can be used as a primer and as well as a setting powder. The silky translucent loose yellow powder creates a flawless , matte finish and an airbrushed look. Suits almost anyone with a warmer skin tone.

It also reduces redness and pink undertones, covers the dark circles well , minimizes pores and fine lines and control the shine. 


PACKAGING : The powder comes in a simple, plastic container. The sifter holes at the top help in easy dispensing of the product.

It’s no secret that I have an oily skin , combination skin would be better. I have never been picky about what setting powder I use. But I definitely need a setting powder, as my makeup will stay on my face for some time at least. I have been trying few brands recently, but the verdict is , it’s a total game changer with GOSH.


A little goes a long way. This powder is super fine–even the slightest bit gives me full-face coverage. Its a  relatively small container  and even if I use it every day I don’t think, I’ll have to repurchase for at least a year. 

Dual Purpose . It can also be used as a primer on a moisturized face, to have your complete look bright ! It can also be used just  as a powder , on a bare face to gives a subtle bright look. 

It’s a great for highlighting and contouring . Sometimes I feel like highlighting can look a little stark under the eyes; this powder brightens in a more natural way. It really evens out a look when layered over creamy concealer.

It gives my face a warm, matte finish.One thing I’ve noticed about other setting powders is that they can leave me looking flat. I like a good matte finish to my face, but I don’t like to look too chalky or dry. I feel like the slight warmth of the yellow in this banana powder makes the finish of my foundation look more natural.

It keeps my makeup locked ! Keeping my makeup in place all day is super important to me. My favorite thing about this powder is that it really does lock my makeup in place, maintaining that freshly applied look throughout the day. I only have to blot once or twice a day on my T-zone when I’m wearing it.

The secret to stay shine-free all day is by using a setting powder.
TIP: Try a powder puff instead of a face brush to prevent the powder from getting everywhere and to help eliminate any shine or redness.

OTHER BRANDS BANANA POWDERS :There are lot many brands in the market which sell banana powder. One such brand that hyped throughout the market is Ben Nye , and some other brands like Morphe, MakeUpForEver Pressed setting powder in Banana, Sephora Bright Set banana powder, and much more. 

I have personally used all these powders, but this one is a game changer . If you want to experience why, try the product and see it yourself, you will end up in saying the same statement like me ! 

AFFORDABILITY : It is highly affordable, and retails for AED 85/- at Gosh Cosmetics, Lifestyle Gulf , center point. 

The only downside to this powder is it’s a bit messy. But I find that to be true of pretty much every loose powder. With this container, the powder almost always collects on top of the sifter, so I have to be  careful when opening and closing the lid.

Whats your Holy Grail setting powder ???
