Banana or Bamboo loose powder – which one is better? || Beauty


I recently really liked using loose powders. Today, I want to show you a little comparison of two loose powders I am currently using. They both have a mattifying effect and can be used in baking makeup. Without any more words, I will write you something more about both of them. 


Wibo, Banana Loose Powder

In the packaging, there are 5,5 grams. I love the smell because you really feel bananas. When to think about this it is really weird to apply a banana on your face, somehow. Not literally but because of smell, it feels like that, just a little. Moving on, it has a yellow colour and it stains concealers a little. If you’re wearing a light shade of concealer, you have to be really careful with the amount you apply. The application is pretty easy, however, if you put too much on the brush you can have it all over yourself. It blends nicely. Also, what is worth mentioning is that the powder falls off the packaging very easy. You don’t have to try hard to get it out through the little holes. When applied to the whole face it beautifully mattifies the skin. 

Now moving on to the ingredients. I’ll focus on the bad ones and those suspicious. It has a lot of substances that can cause an allergic reaction and are skin irritating. Also, it contains Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate and Cl: 19140, which are said to be able to cause cancer. However, I haven’t found any researches that would be 100% sure that they are causing cancer. But still, they aren’t on the good side. 


Lovely, Sweet Kissing Powder, Bamboo Loose Powder

In the packaging, there should be around 5 grams. I haven’t found any information about that on the packaging and if there isn’t any info then it is said that there is 5 grams or less. However, I have calculated it from the prices (not interesting at all). Anyway, I like this a little more than the first one. It is because it doesn’t stain the concealer at all. It’s white. The smell is very sweet and it reminds me of candy fluff. The application is easy but you have to be even more careful to not have this on you. That’s something obvious, I guess when applying loose powder. It blends nicely. One thing, that I don’t know on which side to put, is that the powder is hard to get out of the box. I need to shake it well to have only some out. I think that it can be a good thing at some point because when traveling you don’t have to worry when opening it. Nothing will fall out of it. This powder sets everything beautifully and mattifies the skin very pretty.

When it comes to the ingredients. It has Aroma and Magnesium Stearate which can cause an allergic reaction. The rest is just fine. 


To sum everything up. Both are worth trying and mattifies the skin nicely. Both are smelling incredible. The Lovely one maybe is a bit too loose and you have to be more careful with application. However, the ingredients list is scarier on the Wibo one. What’s more, banana powder stains the concealers yellow when too much is applied. I like both of them, to be honest, but probably will stop using Wibo’s powder because of the things it contains. Or I will use it from time to time. 

Let me know what you think about those two. If you use any other loose powder also let me know. I’d love to find out about new loose powders. 

P.S. Please write me down if you like when I mention some of the bad ingredients. Or maybe you’d like to hear about some of the good ones too. Or maybe you’d like to hear about all the ingredients the cosmetic contains. Please let me know in the comments below.
