Great productI really like this product over a good BB cream. Gives a good amount of coverage and looks natural. It can cling to dry patches which is probably it's only downfall.
great product but not for meI used to use this but it made my makeup look cakey and clung to dry spots, great for oilier skin though and it didn't make me break out.
Face Mineral FoundationI have been using this product for nearly 6 years now, and still find that it is perfect for the extra cover over liquid foundation or just the perfect touch of colour used on top of a moisturiser or primer.
a light powderAn average light foundation powder, blends well and it didn't irritate my skin.
Works with fair skinI've got super fair skin and I've used this product for years. It's easy to apply just a little over the face without looking overdone!
Pretty goodDoes a great job, lovely cover and gentle on the skin had no side effects. One of my best powders
GoodDoesn't feel heavy and it has good coverage. The bonus is that it doesn't break me out.
Favourite mineral powderI have used this powder for over five years and will continue to do so for the next five years (at least!). It’s such a versatile formula- it’s light enough for every day use but can be easily used for evening by applying more product, and it gives a beautiful, natural glow. And the best part is it adapts to your skin tone even when you’ve used fake tan.
my go toMy ideal look is minimal/no make up look, I prefer wearing suncreen and primer underneath a layer or two for an everyday look, for a night out you can build up and blend nicely. I have oily/combination skin so product sits nice and dewy through out the day. Minimal break outs (not sure if it prevents it, but definitely doesn't aggravate it!)
Great coverage and makes skin look greatI pair this with nude by nature liquid foundation underneath. I put a small amount of foundation on my face and then the powder foundation over the top to give a nice coverage and more natural foundation look.
Good not great!Great as a general powder but not phenomenal. It caked on and I found it hard to brush off and blend. May have been the primer I had used. Not sure.
Trusty CompanionI have been using the product for the last five years. I have normal to dry skin that can be significantly red and sensitised. This product is fantastic coverage for a mineral powder and covers my redness well. However, if my skin is on the dryer side or have a flaky patch, the powder can gather on this area. For the price this is a fantastic product. I always receive compliments on my complexion ...Read More
Natural mineral foundationA nice natural mineral foundation which provides good coverage. Good to use on hot days when you don't want to use a liquid foundation. Easy to build the amount of coverage you want with this.
Natural coverageI bought shade medium and I am of Asian descent. I would say my skin is slightly tan however medium was too dark for me and actually pulls slightly grey. I cant much for the other colours but medium was darker than expected. Make sure to swatch in stores first.
quite basicQuite basic, not that good not that bad. Nothing special
Good coverage for a powderI have used this on and off for years. With problematic acne skin I find this powder provides good coverage without feeling heavy on the skin. Will continue to buy!
Not for meI got this as a present. I am more of a liquid foundation girl. I found this to be very drying and cakey without even giving me the best coverage. Even when applying it over liquid foundation its not the best.
GoodMy mum got me this as a present and a thought she got the lightest colour I found it a bit dark, and it doesn’t last all day. And it doesn’t sit well under sunscreen.
EhDefinitely not a foundation. Also doesn't work as a powder. Makes my dry skin look chalky.
good!it covers really well such a good mineral foundation that is not harsh on the skin at all. Works totally well with sensitive skin
BeautifulGreat powder & I got it for half price. I actually find it to be one of my go to products
Beautiful finishBeen using this for about 7 years now and it’s never let me down. Great for quick makeup applications with a natural finish
Everyday wearThis powder is great as I usually apply over a primer or moisturiser and don't feel like I need foundation, which is perfect for a 'non make up look' and for summer. It is lightweight and doesn't go patchy.
Really like but go the pressed version for combo/oily skin :)I really like this product, it has Spf, feels lovely and natural on the skin and evens out the skintone. It's a nice satin finish. I have combo/oily skin and still like this product, but for myself prefer the mattifying pressed version. For anyone though that doesn't like a matte finish, doesn't have oily areas, or wants some extra spf, I would definitely recommend this product :)
Perfect for acne prone skinThis mineral powder is super kind to my acne prone skin, allowing it to breathe whilst also giving a natural glow with lasting oil control.
Very naturalI love this makeup is great if you dont wear alot of makeup as its easier to blend. But you can easier build up. Also switching my makeup to this improve my skin and reduced blemishes
My everyday go to.I absolutely love this mineral cover foundation. I've used it for years. I apply it over the top of my foundation, it doesn't cause break outs nor does it clog my pores. I love how you can dress it up or down. Illuminates and brightens my complexion and I love the fact that it is not full of chemicals like a lot of other powder foundations are.
Worth the hype - every day staple and CHEAPI formerly only used MAC powder every day for my natural makeup routine for work, and then thought I should start using natural products and read many rave reviews - this is definitely a must have. It has an incredible finish, but makes your skin look natural and glowing. It has buildable coverage, so you can make it as light or as matte and heavy as you like. It is such a bargain as well. I love ...Read More
Goldilocks coverage and clear skin!I’ve lost track of how many years I’ve been using Nude’s mineral cover - but its certainly long enough to remember the mid-morning TV infomercials! This foundation is super-tailorable - a once-over evens out skin tone on blemishes and scars like a pressed powder, or can be layered up subtly to suit the degree of coverage I want for the occasion or skin-day. Works wonders on its own and blends sea...Read More
Great foundationGreat foundation! My skin feels like it can still breath with this on. It covers very well but looks like I’m wearing nothing.
Good Mineral PowderThis powder is great if you're looking for a mineral powder and a reasonable price point. Personally I prefer pressed powder as I find the loose to be very messy so just be sure to tap off all the excess.
Lovely lovelyThis is a well priced product with a lot of good things going for it
Pro - natural, good coverage, good shade range, covers shine and gives glow
Cons - difficult to blend, need to buff vigourosly
Not the best on the market, but the best under $50
BestBest mineral foundation love it
Amazing!I can't fault this product my skin is either oily or shiny the mineral foundation covers it perfectly.
Best for summersThis is a great option for summers if you have oily skin. I use this sometimes on it's own and sometimes on top of my foundation. It gives that oil control without making the skin look matte however the coverage isn't that good. So worth the money as it lasts a long time.
Good, subtle mineral foundationI am not a big make up person, and I hate wearing a full coverage foundation every day. I have been wearing this with a bb cream and I like that it gives a 'full face' look with out all the heaviness.
My Go-ToI have been using the Mineral Cover Foundation for years over top of my regular foundation. It is gentle on my skin, doesn't block my pores and sets my foundation in place.
This is much better than the pressed powders (except when you drop it on the carpet)
Favourite for every day wearHave been using this instead of liquid foundation for years now and skin is clearer thanks to it. You can apply less for a natural look and more for a more done up look. So versatile and feels great on
great usethis is great for baking under the eye, however i find it hard to blend and haven’t been able to find my perfect match.
perfect for bakingLove baking my under eyes with this as it sets my concealer and also brightens my undereyes!! no oiliness appears with this product either :)
Great!Great foundation! Perfect if you have oily skin! Nice smooth finish and looks very natural
Only mineral foundation I’ve ever usedI started using this powder years ago and haven’t once strayed. It just works! I have combination skin and this helps to control shine in the oily parts whilst not accentuating or looking flaky on the drier parts of my face. It’s never broken me out and I can use it either by itself or over make up. I think I’ll be using this forever!
best powder foundationThis is my first powder foundation and I received a gift pack from my best friend. She recommended this brand to me. I have dry and sensitive skin. I used to choose liquid foundation but my forehead always turn oily after 2-hour application. NBN surprised me, does not dry out my skin and irritate but stay for whole day. The coverage is light to medium, not full coverage, the concealer is a must. I...Read More
Buildable and long wearThis product is perfect for use on its on or on top of liquid foundation easily buildable. And melts into the skin for a lovely finish rather than sitting on top of the skin.
recommend!I have used nude by nature for many years and can not fault it. the powder is great coverage just on its own and easy to build up evening or all day wear.
Go to mineral foundationI have been purchasing Nude by Nature Mineral Foundation for several years now. I find that it gives just enough coverage to go to work in, but not so much that my skin and pores are left feeling caked up and blocked. It gives reasonable coverage for skin redness and pimples - doesn't completely block out un-evenness however so this is just something to keep in mind. It also needs to be re-applied...Read More
Using this powder for yearsI've been purchasing this powder time and time again for years. I put a tiny bit over the top of my estee lauder double wear foundation everyday to stop my skin from getting oily, and it creates a lovely finish. If I only wear this my skin can look a bit dry, but if you have great skin this would probably be all you need to use!
It’s goodI have the medium shade and with it being winter I can’t wear it because it’s too dark for me, so I’ll have to wait for summer. But when I’m tan this gives great coverage! It has tiny specs of glitter in it which is so pretty so it’s a little bit luminous. I am still on the hunt for a great mineral powder. This is nice, but it can sink into pores at times. It does last great.
NaturalLightweight, easy to apply, and leaves my skin smooth without being too cakey at all. The coverage is amazing.
ClassicThese powders are classics. Super lightweight and blend really nicely. Colour matches really well too
Amazed! Glad I finally tried itI'd looked at this product so many times but I had no idea how mineral powder worked so was too afraid to try. I finally bought it. A little goes a long way so the product lasts for ages I got the Nude by Nature Complexion Essentials pack and its lasted 3 whole weeks so far and still going.
I have combination skin, very dry around my eyes, nose and chin. I suffer acne, this a very natural lo...Read More
So glad I finally tried itI used this at a friends and Ioved how quick it was to apply. And it's so easily buildable. I have fairly dry skin, so it's pretty crucial to apply a primer beforehand, but it looks so natural yet I honestly feel like I'm glowing. I'm really pale and glad I got the lightest shade because if I want to build to full coverage and had got the darker, it would have looked ridiculous. So keep that in mi...Read More
Does blend as well as I’d likeI find this powder doesn’t blend as well as I’d like for something that is leaning towards heavier mineral coverage. I also couldn’t find the perfect match for my skin tone in winter and only use it for the warmer months for a glow.
not great on problem areasThis makeup doessnt clog my pores however it also doesn't cover problem areas and also makes my pores look big
it doesn't blend very well and looks cakey after abit
pretty goodthis powder is really nice if you're not looking for much coverage, and is good for people with discoloration in the skin as it evens out your complexion. however, if you're looking for anything to cover acne or breakout areas, this probably won't do you much good. it's really good for a quick everyday touch up, and feels nice on the skin.
Patchy coverage on textured skinThe formula seems nice enough, although I found it difficult to apply evenly over areas on my face that have texture (large pores and acne scars) even when used with different types of primers. Light/medium was shade recommended on the NbN website but it was far too yellow for my medium neutral skintone (EL 3N1). I didn't persevere with colour matching as I found my shade in a different brand mi...Read More
Good powder, but you could get better for the priceThis is a good powder that looks great on the skin, however for the price I feel there are much better products out there than this.
Love love loveI have never strayed from this product as I found it about 8 years ago and haven’t looked back. You can lighten the coverage or use it thicker for a special occasion. I always get asked what I use and they’re surprised that it is only powder.
UnsureNot the best mineral foundation,I don’t know if they have changed ingredients but it used to be my go to! Something changed. it can be quite difficult to blend, clumps into the dry spots. Not a huge colour range to suit all skin tones. I have had no reactions; it’s great for those with sensitive skin. I do think their is better products on the market, but each to their own.
AverageFor the price, I was expecting this to be better. It's quite heavy, and doesn't disperse as easily as some other powder's I've used.
Always a good finish.I have oily skin with dry patched around the nose and chin area, accompanied by some red spots on my nose. This powder foundation goes on well either on top of foundation for amazing coverage or just on a moisturiser for a more natural look which I prefer (and it still manages to cover any redness), the powder doesn’t exacerbate my dry patches either which some powders tend to do. I’m happy with t...Read More
OkayNot a terrible powder but not great. It does the job but seems quite cakey on my skin. Good basic powder though not worth the price.
Quick and EasyI have purchased about 5 of these. It is a long-standing staple for quick and easy makeup days. Very natural look. super buildable
Love thisThe only powder foundation I use, love it - this brand always impresses me
Its okayIts really quick and easy to just chuck on but it seems to dry out my skin quite a lot. Coverage is okay, lasts the work day. I throw a lot of red so if you're prone to rosey checks and want more coverage this isnt the way to go for you
FavouriteI purchased this foundation as I was after a mineral foundation that did not feel too heavy and had good coverage of my skin & this product has delivered that since I bought it a few years ago. I am a consistent user of this product as I can feel how much my skin likes it and the coverage that I get usually lasts the whole day - such a great every day mineral foundation, I'd definitely recommend! ...Read More
good for natural daysthis foundation is good for day to day use where you don't want a full coverage foundation but still want to have a healthy glow and hide imperfections. it is very easy to apply and does not stick to dry patches.
11/10I love this stuff, have been using it alongside revlon colour stay for years now and never seem to fave any issues with my skin. I only tap a small amount into the lid and apply with a big fluffy brush (the nude by nature finishing brush) and it lasts me so long I replace it before running out. The light/medium is a great colour for pale skin types whom like to apply a lightish tan and not to thei...Read More
amazing coverageI currently use this product more as a powder to set my face due to my oily skin. It is a powder with great coverage and gives the skin a lovely finish - not quite matte but not quite glowy either. I'd say it gives a satin look. I have tried this powder on its own as well and it looks great. It can look cakey if too much powder is applied. I would highly recommend this product to all.
Natrual finishAwesome mineral foundation, gives a beautiful glow and great coverage. Looks very natrual
Holy grail of all powders!This natural powder gives me a blemish free finish and a nice matte look with no visible creases. Highly recommend this for sensitive skin.
Great coverageGreat coverage for a powder foundation, feels quite nice on and not as heavy as a liquid. I found this quite cake though and my personal preference is a liquid so probably wouldn't use again
MY HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION!If you like a buildable, natural cover like I do - you will love this. It doesn't look powdery, is buildable in areas where you need a little more coverage without looking cakey and I find that it sits really well on my face. The shades blend perfectly with my skin and it gives me that perfect "my skin, but better" look. I love it!!!
Used in shade lightThis is great used on it's own for some coverage or as a setting for a light tint (like a bb cream). It gives a really natural dewy finish and lasts well throughout the day.
Full coverageFull coverage and long lasting, can sink into fine lines a tiny bit but easy to touch up. Can become cakey very quickly so use sparingly if you have drier skin
Mineral makeupReally lovely powder foundation! It works amazing on my skin during summer/ hot months, but clings to dry flakes in winter. The shade range isn't great, but I think fair-medium skintones can make it work. The packaging, as always, is really pretty too. Recommend using this with their kabuki brush. The mineral foundation doesn't break me out either
MehI think this stuck to my concealer in a weird way and made me look really patchy. I think this is okay for the price but it’s not something I gravitate towards!
Good buildable coverageOn good skin days I love using just sunscreen and a healthy dusting of this. It's easy to apply, the colour is subtle and it mattifies my combo skin like a dream. The only complaint I have is the packaging. Those powder dispenses are so cumbersome to use. You have to shake them out, apply with a brush and blow off the excess. It goes everywhere sometimes.
Long time fan!I have recently returned to Nude by Nature since wanting to wear less makeup and I am not disappointed. I love that a little goes a long way with this powder and it doesn’t sit on top of your skin looking powdery. I usually use this over my foundation when I have a tan on or wear it on a bare face to the gym for a light coverage to add some evenness to my face.
So - soI find this mineral powder a bit cakey at the end of the day. I found it settled in my pores, no matter which primer I used.
I found it messy to apply, being a loose powder and won't be purchasing it again.
I can see how some people would love it, but it wasn't worth the time it took to build on my face, or the mess that it made on my bench.
Light coverageI prefer full coverage foundations as I have a lot of hyperpigmentation on my face. This powder is very light coverage but feels nice on the skin. Therefore, I prefer to use it as a finishing powder on top of foundation.
Naturally cover and light powderI love the light texture products coz I don't like the powdery or oily feelings. This loose powder is very light weight but has well coverage. I can use it after BB cream.
Excellent cruelty free mineral foundationLove the whole nude by nature range. Love they are cruelty free and safe for your skin with no nasty hidden ingredients. This foundation leave my skin looking fresh and glowy. I don’t usually where mineral powder foundations but when I do I reach for this one
Nice and naturalI like this product a lot- not too powdery and looks super natural. Don’t love the packaging but all loose powders tend to get a bit messy!
Cult favoriteI have used this product for nearly 15 years. I haven't tried the new shades however sometimes it can appear quite pink undertoned.
It's great for a light coverage on it's own or can use a light amount on top of a liquid for more coverage/setting. I have gotten my Mum, sisters and friends onto this product! Seems expensive however it lasts a long long time
Really NiceThis goes on beautifully. I use it to match my neck to my face once I've applied foundation. I sweep a little over my cheeks for some colour. Lasts ages! Have had the same pot for 6 months and use it every day.
Great over liquid coverageI've been using this powder for years now.
I mainly use it to set BB cream or foundation. If the foundation/BB cream I am using is too light because I have tanned, this powder is great for darkening it when used over the liquid. Means I don't need to buy a darker foundation for summer.
On its own, it comes off very quickly, even with a primer
Decent Mineral FoundationThe loose powder foundations are a decent product - they cover well allowing for buildable coverage, finish is not too powdery as some other mineral foundations tend to be.
My concerns with this foundation is the poor shade selection i.e. for medium golden yellow skin tones and the way that it's not the most flattering with those with dark under eye circles - i place a concealer under...Read More
Light and naturalGreat drug store powder, light, natural finish. Some days when I want something light on I will put a bb cream and lightly dust this powder on my face and wah lah I’m ready to start my day !
Great as a finishing powderI have used Nude for a long time now and depending on what state my skin is in depends on if i can use this as a foundation or a finishing powder.
If you have fairly clear skin, pigmentation is more your concern and don't like wearing heaps of make up its great. You can cover small blemishes with a small concealer brush by concentrating on the area and then blending but if you have pr...Read More
Does The JobI am not a powder girl but when i have a super shiny day or extra oil around i use this powder. It stays on for hours and creates a sheer finish, not super matte which i like
Good as a finishing powderThis is not a buildable foundation that can provide medium to full coverage. It is very sheer and will not cover blemishes or pigmentation. However the powder does feel nice on the skin and I recommend using as a finishing powder over foundation and concealer.
An excellent mineral powder foundationI have been using this mineral powder foundation for many years. It is light, provides excellent coverage, and you don't need to use a lot of it, so it lasts a while. And it is great for acne prone skin. Most highly recommended.
Super lightweightThis mineral cover foundation is super lightweight and sheer. It doesn't cover blemishes or uneven skin tone, but is a lovely, light finishing powder. I recommend it if all you want is like a 'veil' over your makeup, but wouldn't use it alone unless I was going for a very natural look. I love that it feels so light and fresh!
Have had one in my make up kit for yearsLove this foundation! Perfect for good skin days when I just want a little bit of coverage. Or will use a little bit of concealer under eyes and on spots and this and perfect amount of cover for everyday. Always used to get comments about how I would get such good coverage with my foundation for nights out and my secret has always been a liquid/cream and this over the top. In the last few months I...Read More
Nice but not for meThe coverage of this foundation is rather light. If you prefer a fuller coverage I recommend using this to set your foundation and concealer but not on its own. If you do not mind a light coverage for everyday however, then this could be the powder foundation for you. The finish is lovely.
Day to day holy grail productI use this foundation powder coverage by nude by nature every day over the top of my concealer and liquid foundation.
At times it can emphasise fine lines (in particular it sometimes falls into my smile lines and highlights this), however just be careful with how much you are putting on or use a primer beforehand and you shouldnt have that issue.
I like the foundation as ...Read More
Daily, no fuss baseI bought this on a whim upon hearing that mineral makeup is probably better for daily wear, especially as an acne prone person.
For a while I found this was, okay. Not anything amazing and stopped using it.
For the last two weeks this has been my daily base. It evens out my complexion just nicely but doesn't feel or even look heavy. It mattifys well though it can encourage oil produc...Read More
all time favouritethis is my absolute favourite powder foundation. I've been using it for years and I always find myself going back to it. I either use this powder when I want a touch more coverage over liquid foundation or i use the mineral veil just to set my foundation. I find this product goes over every foundation I've ever used fine, adds a little extra coverage and sets my foundation so it doesn't slide arou...Read More
Enhances fine linesI only notice I have smile lines when this product is on my cheeks. Not with liquid foundations, though. It also makes my skin feel tight and uncomfortable (I have normal-dry skin).
Has a lovely sheen to it, giving a healthy glow (but not shiny). Really love that I don't cringe, thinking of toxins going on my face with this. 100% no scent, too!
Because it can get messy, ...Read More
