This is a great setting powder. I typically use Ben Nye banana powder and this is a great alternative. It is not as banana/yellow as the BN version which is good for lighter skin tones (but certainly not exclusive to!). The banana tint is so much better than regular translucent powder which lightens you up a little too much - especially with flash! I applied this with a sponge/beauty blender over my concealer, let it sit for 10 minutes while I continued to get ready and then dusted it off. It was able to soak up some of the oils in the concealer to keep everything crease-free. Made for perfect photos. I've also used this as an all over face powder to again take away any oils. Just make sure your skin is well-hydrated, use minimal product and brush it away so that you don't look chalky. Try it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Maybellline lasting fix
It doesn't really set my foundation. It does cake up if you apply to much. You actually have to be very light when applying it on. It did crease under my eyes, Also i notice it makes your face appear whiter I'm not sure if it's because of its thick consistency or the formula of the powder. Also if you take a pictures with flash on you'll sure notice your skin tone a lot lighter then usual. It wouldn't be my first choice of setting powder I will pick out of my make up bag.

I really like this powder. I am really picky on my powders, but I enjoyed this one. A negative is it might not look as great on all skin tones. It looked good on me, but I have a light skin tone. It did not crease and lasted all day. I only used it under my eyes because all over I would look weird. Again skin tone issues. The texture of the powder is great as well. Finely milled which is what I like.

I really like this setting powder. It went on really smooth and was lightweight. I will definitely continue to use this product and would purchase it again!

I really like this setting powder. it's very soft and sets my foundation well. I like that it feels very lightweight on my skin. very smooth looking. I also like that it does not have a scent to the product.
Nice softening effect!

My first impression of this product was that the packaging is a little tricky. It's hard to get the right amount of product out without getting it everywhere. I'll just have to practice!
I applied tinted moisturizer and concealer under my eyes before setting with this powder. I immediately noticed the softening, blurring effect under my eye. I was pleasantly surprised! I'm not so sure about the supposed brightening effect, but I'm happy enough with the blurring as is. I could also tell that my under eyes FELT set. That concealer is locked into place and the finish is silky smooth and gorgeous. I'm excited to keep trying this and see how it works with my other tinted moisturizers and foundations! Other than the packaging issue, I'm loving it so far!

I really enjoyed this powder it set my make up well without giving any kind of white yellow cast￼ and keeping the finish natural. The only possible thing I would change is the component, the hose the powder come out of are a bit small so it can be hard to get a good amount on a brush￼

First time using it today for about 6 hours and it kept my makeup nicely. Did not look dusty
cherylg26 from undisclosed
I like the finish look, it's slightly too white but it still works after applying some bronzer! Long lasting!
What a surprise!
charlenen41d4 from undisclosed
When I saw that I was getting a banana powder I was kinda worried since I have light skin so I thought it wouldn't work for me but I was so surprised when it did! The shade goes on translucent and sets a smooth base that allows you to blend anything on top. I'd definitely recommend this!

This is a pretty good powder, one of the better drugstore powders that I've used recently. It works well to set my makeup and keep it in place all day and it kept my oils to a minimum. My only complaint is that it's a tiny bit dark/yellow for my complexion, but it's not too noticeable
Okay but not the greatest.
lieren from undisclosed
I enjoy the slight yellow tones that cancel out my redness for sure. I just didn't like the way this felt on my skin. I have porous skin with unevenness throughout and I felt like it didn't leave a flawless finish. Not bad but definitely not high end quality.
overall Good Powder!
nehaimrann from undisclosed
I was really excited to try it out this product because I love a good brightening look on my face, I personally struggle with￼￼￼￼ under eyes brightness because most powders I use tend to oxidize my under eye and this sadly was one of those powders. Even though I was a little disappointed, I loved how fine the powder was what's truly did melt into my skin. So overall I did enjoy it and will continue using it!￼￼￼

It's a loose setting powder. It feels so soft and most likely finely milled. They go on smoothly and most under eye creases are gone. Good maybe as a highlighter and specially in the under eye areas. It's matte so that's good for oily to combo skinned people.
No smell at all which is a plus.
Con: if tanned, medium skinned or dark skinned tone people, it would look ashy. Wish it had an alternative shade ranged for those that want color. ￼it lasted me at least 6-8 hours.
not banana powder?
amandad279 from undisclosed
I was very excited to try this. I love the smaller packaging, but there's nothing to block the holes, so lots of powder gets stuck in the upper portion. The color did not look like any banana powder I'd ever worked with. It has more of a nude skin tone. This product performed well, though. It isn't chalky and helps keep my makeup in place. I would purchase this item.
good product, okay packaging
gracec17 from undisclosed
The product itself is really nice. It set my makeup without it looking cakey or feeling heavy like some other powders do. The only thing I would improve is the packaging. Specifically, it would be nice if there was something to cover the holes where the product comes out of when it's not in use. For this reason, it doesn't seem like this powder is very travel friendly.
I took my time
iammamabird87 from undisclosed
it took me some time to review this because I really tested this out. I alternated from my usual powder. a week on and a week off then every other day. I have to say I was surprised that I found my self reaching for this than my usual . I think what I really liked about it is that has a slight color to it so it really covered imperfections and blended and blurred my face it honestly looked like a snap chat filter. it for sure keeps a Matt finish most of the day. I don't know if I would call it lasting. I would have to touch it up if I were to go out in the evening. The other plus is its more affordable than what I typically use. I actually think I will buy this when I run out because I really do like the finish it gives my face. just with it was as long lasting as the lipstick was.
light and airy
annas8cb0 from undisclosed
This finishing powder feels soft and airy. Some setting powders seem to sit on top of the makeup, but this one blends nicely and looks natural. I took off a star because it comes off of my face before my work shift is over, but ymmv.
amandahc7a7 from undisclosed
I tried it both as a setting power for under eye concealer and for a full face blend. I was expecting with the slight yellow tint for some tone discoloration but was surprisingly pleased that it actually just evened out my skin tone causing freckles and dark spots to be less harsh and noticable without concealer or foundation. when applied over concealer, it did cake slightly but was easily corrected with a moist beauty blended. Overall very happy with this product!!

I really liked this product I feel that it really did do a good job for me and the way it felt and looked was nice also. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone..
Non-crease powder for baking
suswanac from undisclosed
I used this powder before too. It has a proven no crease formula for undereye baking. These days with masks on I never wear foundation. This powder over a little bit of eye cream does the trick of brightening under myeyes daily.
emilyj30 from undisclosed
I've never used banana powder before but I really love this! I have light skin with cool pink undertones, so I don't know if this is translucent on someone with deeper skin. But for me, it makes my face feel soft an matte even just over my moisturizer.
I love this powder!
mandicas from undisclosed
I love this powder! This powder is great for setting the under eyes. While this is a yellow powder, this powder appears translucent on the skin. This powder has kept my under eyes from creasing! I haven't tried this powder on the rest of the skin , but I have used this powder to set my under eyes and it performs wonderfully.
Be Careful When Opening
wanderingaless from undisclosed
It blended into the skin seamlessly just be sparing with it. But I'm not if it right for my skin tone but someone with fair /light skin tone might like it more I would advise being careful with how you open it because as I was removing the sticker off of the powder sifter (?) somehow the powder end up everywhere.
Maybelline New York Lasting Fix Banana Powder

I really love this product, I currently use a liquid mineral that leaves stains on my mask but once I started using the Lasting fix banana powder my facemask has not gotten any sunscreen stain. I would strongly recommend this powder.
Silica...bummer :(! sensitive skin, beware!
jamber_10 from undisclosed
This was a great setting powder, especially for baking concealer! Don't let the name fool you- there is no scent to the product, which was a bit of a bummer. That being said, the yellow undertone to the powder does have some color correcting properties which were helpful for my skin. Unfortunately the second ingredient in this product is silica. Therefore, My face broke out excessively after only one use. That being said, the silica is a deal breaker for me.

This does its job! Not my favorite but is still good. Has a matte finish. There aren't enough holes so it takes a minute to get the powder out.
