Ben Nye banana powder in UAE!

Hello beautiful friends!

Recently I wrote about the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) and just in passing, I had mentioned that Ben Nye banana powder is available in the Kuwait pavilion. One of the my lovely followers, Rekss, asked me further questions on it and though I gave her most of what I knew, I still felt the information was vague. So I decided to head to DSF again. So last week, I went there and here is everything that I found out.


1) First company offering Ben Nye products in UAE : Character Professional & Cinema Make-up.

So this particular company has a store in the Kuwait pavilion at DSF. When entering from the front entrance (pictured below – I clicked it!), you will have to walk all the way towards the back entrance and look for the store with ‘Character’ written on the board in Arabic. If you can’t read Arabic, it’s OK. Just look for the store number 11 on the board. Once you reach there, you can see the name Character Professional & Cinema Make-up written on the background wall of the store. They deal with both Ben Nye (USA) and Makeup Studio (Netherlands).


I was able to find banana powders in the following colors : Fair, Coco tan, Pretty pink, Neutral set and the yellow one. A small bottle of 42 gms costs AED 75 and a bottle of 99 gms costs AED 100. Please note that on my last visit, they quoted me AED 78 for the 42 gms bottle.

So that’s all the stuff I found from there. Two days later I decided to contact them directly on their main office number to get to know more buying options. So here are 2 other ways to purchase those products as told to me by one of their representatives on phone.

a) From the main office itself : This is the location of the main office –

Room 203, 2nd Floor,
Al Bakhit Center,
Abu Baker Sidique Road,
Deira, Dubai
Tel: +971 4 2699552

Al Bakhit

You can walk in directly and purchase it from them.

b) You can call the above number and arrange an appointment whereby a sales person will come to your home along with the products and you can check, test and buy them if you wish to!. This is free of charge. I think this is an excellent option for serious buyers out there. Wherever you are in the UAE, you can arrange a meeting at your home (I meant to say that this is not only offered in Dubai but in other cities too)

2) Second company offering Ben Nye products in UAE : Nina Gallery. I did more research and found out about this company.

Here is their address and contact number:

Nina Gallery,
Ground floor
Al Khaleej center,
Al Mankhool Road,
Bur Dubai, Dubai
Tel: +971 4 3599412

Al Khaleej

I called them and they said that currently Ben Nye banana powders are out of stock and will be available by the end of next week. They are getting it shipped from USA. There are already about 20 clients on waiting-list for those products.  If you wish to go on wait-list too for a particular product, you can email your details to

So that’s it guys!. That’s all the info I could find out. Rekss and anyone looking for Ben Nye products in UAE, I hope you all found this post helpful.

Love always,


Note : I have a giveaway going on right now until Feb 7th, 2013. Don’t forget to check it out by clicking here. Stay awesome 🙂

    • Hi Sapna!. As mentioned in this very post, Character Professional and Cinema Makeup stall at DSF carried Makeup Studio products too. I haven’t seen it on any online shopping sites though.

  6. Hi all,
    do you have any advise – where is possible to buy Banana Powder from Ben Nye – now – in Febuary 2015???
    Not on-line – I really prefer go directly somewhere in Dubai and buy there!! Because with on-line shoping here in Dubai I have so bad expirience … (just for info for you – from – many items is not ORIGINAL – but only DUPES like from Dragon Markt – unfortunatelly my personal expirience!!!)
    Thank you so much for hepl!!

    • Hi Lenka!.. I am sorry you had a rough experience with online shopping. Actually I don’t know where it’s available in a physical store now. The Bakhit center one isn’t dealing with Ben Nye banana powder anymore, I believe. As Global Village is still on (until April), you might want to check it out there.
