Most Helpful Positive



it covers really well such a good mineral foundation that is not harsh on the skin at all. Works totally well with sensitive skin

Most Helpful Criticism



Definitely not a foundation. Also doesn't work as a powder. Makes my dry skin look chalky.
  1. Not for me


    I 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.
  2. Good


    My 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.
  3. Eh


    Definitely not a foundation. Also doesn't work as a powder. Makes my dry skin look chalky.
  4. 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
  5. Beautiful


    Great powder & I got it for half price. I actually find it to be one of my go to products
  6. Beautiful finish


    Been using this for about 7 years now and it’s never let me down. Great for quick makeup applications with a natural finish
  7. Everyday wear


    This 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.
  8. 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 :)
  9. Perfect for acne prone skin


    This mineral powder is super kind to my acne prone skin, allowing it to breathe whilst also giving a natural glow with lasting oil control.
  10. Very natural


    I 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
  11. 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.
  12. Worth the hype - every day staple and CHEAP


    I 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 ...

  13. 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...

  14. Great foundation


    Great foundation! My skin feels like it can still breath with this on. It covers very well but looks like I’m wearing nothing.
  15. Good Mineral Powder


    This 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.
  16. Lovely lovely


    This 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
  17. Amazing!


    I can't fault this product my skin is either oily or shiny the mineral foundation covers it perfectly.
  18. Best for summers


    This 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.
  19. Good, subtle mineral foundation


    I 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.
  20. My Go-To


    I 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)
  21. Favourite for every day wear

    Mim S

    Have 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
  22. great use


    this is great for baking under the eye, however i find it hard to blend and haven’t been able to find my perfect match.
  23. perfect for baking


    Love baking my under eyes with this as it sets my concealer and also brightens my undereyes!! no oiliness appears with this product either :)
  24. Great!


    Great foundation! Perfect if you have oily skin! Nice smooth finish and looks very natural
  25. Only mineral foundation I’ve ever used


    I 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!
  26. best powder foundation


    This 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...

  27. Buildable and long wear


    This 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.
  28. 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.
  29. Go to mineral foundation


    I 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...

  30. Using this powder for years


    I'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!
  31. It’s good


    I 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.
  32. Natural


    Lightweight, easy to apply, and leaves my skin smooth without being too cakey at all. The coverage is amazing.
  33. Classic


    These powders are classics. Super lightweight and blend really nicely. Colour matches really well too
  34. Amazed! Glad I finally tried it


    I'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...

  35. So glad I finally tried it


    I 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...

  36. Does blend as well as I’d like


    I 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.
  37. not great on problem areas


    This 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
  38. pretty good


    this 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.
  39. Patchy coverage on textured skin


    The 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...

  40. Good powder, but you could get better for the price


    This 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.
  41. Love love love


    I 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.
  42. Unsure


    Not 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.
  43. Average


    For 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.
  44. 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...

  45. Okay


    Not 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.
  46. Quick and Easy


    I have purchased about 5 of these. It is a long-standing staple for quick and easy makeup days. Very natural look. super buildable
  47. Love this


    The only powder foundation I use, love it - this brand always impresses me
  48. Its okay


    Its 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
  49. Favourite


    I 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! ...

  50. good for natural days


    this 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.
  51. 11/10


    I 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...

  52. amazing coverage


    I 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.
  53. Natrual finish


    Awesome mineral foundation, gives a beautiful glow and great coverage. Looks very natrual
  54. 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.
  55. Great coverage


    Great 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


    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!!!
  57. Used in shade light


    This 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.
  58. Full coverage


    Full 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
  59. Mineral makeup


    Really 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
  60. Meh


    I 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!
  61. Good buildable coverage


    On 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.
  62. 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.
  63. So - so


    I 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.
  64. Light coverage


    I 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.
  65. Naturally cover and light powder


    I 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.
  66. Excellent cruelty free mineral foundation


    Love 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
  67. Nice and natural


    I 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!
  68. Cult favorite


    I 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
  69. Really Nice


    This 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.
  70. Great over liquid coverage


    I'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
  71. Decent Mineral Foundation


    The 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...

  73. Great as a finishing powder


    I 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...

  74. Does The Job


    I 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
  75. Good as a finishing powder


    This 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.
  76. An excellent mineral powder foundation


    I 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.
  77. Super lightweight


    This 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!
  78. Have had one in my make up kit for years


    Love 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...

  79. Nice but not for me


    The 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.
  80. Day to day holy grail product


    I 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.

    It also leaves a slight whitish cast on my skin - this could be attributed to the colour being a bit to light, but the shade darker is too dark.

  86. Decent powder for price point


    This powder has a nice colour, and there is a lot of it in the container so it last a long time. I don't love the way it feels on my skin, as the powder creates a kind of film through the day. But it does a nice job in terms of coverage, and like I said the colour is quite good.
  87. Light coverage


    I like a full coverage foundation and for me this was just too light.
    It looks very natural and it's great that it builds up without looking cakey, but I really have to build this up to cover my imperfections.

    I love the coverage that I get from this foundation but I do need to use a setting spray after applying otherwise I end up shiny. The only negative is the mess!! Make sure you are not dressed before applying otherwise it ends up all over your clothes.
  90. This is an amazing product.


    With my skin, I really need full coverage and like to cover every blemish and scar on my face. I started using this product about 2 years ago and I haven't changed since. I always come back to it. It provides a smooth, even, full coverage and is simple to use. You can use a light amount if you don't require full coverage and it would be perfect, or, you can build in layers providing full flawless ...

  91. Best powder foundation


    I have been using this product for the last 5 years and I keep coming back to it!
    Its perfect as a stand alone light/medium coverage foundation when a natural look is desired and I use it as a finishing powder over my liquid foundation application to give a matte finish! Its non cakey, and non drying! A staple in my makeup bag!
  92. I keep coming back to this one


    This is very fast to apply, and forgiving (so much easier and quicker than liquid foundations!). It evens out skin-tone, which is my main concern. It wouldn't hide bright imperfections but concealer works well under this. Add that it has some sun protections (not enough to give up on SPF, but a little extra help), when it does wear off it does so all over, not in patches, and you've got a fantasti...

  94. Natural coverage


    Perfect powder for those looking to give themselves a natural glow. This long wearing powder is good for the skin and lasts all day. Doesn't go cakey and absorbs excess oils.
  95. Nice sheer coverage


    This is nice for people who feel that liquid foundations are too heavy or oily. Gives quite sheer coverage but it does even out the skintone and it is nice to know that it is made of mainly natural ingredients.
  96. Will keep buying!


    I love this mineral makeup because I can use a very small amount just to give my skin a bit of colour and glow or I can build it up for more coverage. I also love that it's good for my skin and not clogging up my pores. It feels lightweight and like I have no makeup on, unlike a lot of sticky liquid foundations. Perfect to take with you and touch up on the go.
  97. Easy, quick


    Great coverage that you can apply in 2 minutes. Great for days when I'm running late. Also love anything nude by nature as they are a natural brand!
  98. Best Quick Coverage


    Sometimes I find myself running late for work or uni and need something quick to put on that will still give me a great coverage and cover up my red cheeks and this works a treat!

    I love this mineral powder.
    1. It’s great value for money
