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.

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 mineral powder foundation that I'm happy with.

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 this product!
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!
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 their face as it blends well into the neck.
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 underneath and the foundation on top but I feel like it doesn't provide anywhere near the coverage that liquid foundations can.
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 problem skin you may require a foundation with more coverage and find this is better as a finishing powder.
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 have noticed I have to be very light handed around my mouth as it can settle in my smile lines but that was overall too much product and not overuse of this. I always have the light and fair and mix them together to get the perfect shade depending on the season.
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 it is mineral based, and it offers amazing coverage. I have pretty bad skin with alot of dark spots and blemishes and I know I can always count on this foundation to cover it (I use a smaller, targeted brush when covering a spot).
I have been using this product for more than 3 years now so I think it's easy to say that I am happy and satisfied with this product.
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 production depending on my base underneath. I tend to wear it with a mattifying SPF but my more emollient SPF's work, it just gets a bit oilier faster.
I haven't tried this over a liquid foundation as I prefer just a one and done approach which this is perfect for.
This is not a high coverage product. I would say it is light but buildable to maybe a medium at best.
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 around my face. Love it!
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, I apply it wearing just my bra. Maybe takes twice as long to apply than a liquid alone, however it looks best when I combine both (light liquid foundation all over, then this dusted on T-zone and visible blemished areas).
flawless coveragethis powder gives a full flawless coverage and lasts all night. hasn't broke me out yet but I haven't used it often enough to tell
does the jobThis isn't the best Mineral powder I have used, Nor is it bad. It does the job. I find it a bit hard to find the right tone for my tan skin , as the colour shades are limited. I use Light/medium
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.
Overall this is nice , as sits as my backup.
Decent powder for price pointThis 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.
Light coverageI 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.
And it's so time consuming and messy.
It's good that the product doesn't just pour out of the holes, but it takes forever to tip it upside down, tap on the bottom and get just the tiniest amount of powder out, blend it in then repeat.
I can't even layer concealer under this because I need to blend with a brush so much it would disturb the concealer. And of course I can't put a cream product over powder.
This is good for people who like natural looking makeup.
Great coverageThis was the first nude by nature product I bought and I got this as I was after a light weight mineral foundation that looked natural. It was hard to color match but I got lucky with this product. Although it's a little messy but the coverage is light but gives a lovely finish. The coverage lasts all day and the color match is perfect. It's an affordable price and I would definitely buy this again when I run out.
Great product, just so messy!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.
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 coverage. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. Love it.
Best powder foundationI 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!
I keep coming back to this oneThis 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 fantastic everyday, lightweight foundation.
Awesome FoundationI'm not a fan of makeup because I don't need it and everything I put on my face, makeup wise, makes me breakout. This, however, is the best foundation I have ever tried and this is the one face makeup I will most likely come back to. The shade Light perfectly matches me and makes my skin brighter and glowy. This foundation only gives you a healthier look so it doesn't cover anything like pores or imperfections. That's not really an issue for me since I take skincare seriously.
Natural coveragePerfect 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.
Nice sheer coverageThis 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.
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.
Easy, quickGreat 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!
Best Quick CoverageSometimes 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!
My skin has always been quite oily and I have found it so hard to find a powder to apply by itself that will stay on throughout the entire day.
Definitely would recommend this to anyone, whether it be your only makeup you apply, or to put over the top of others this is awesome!
Best mineral powderI love this mineral powder.
1. It’s great value for money
2. The colours in the range never throw a orange
3. It has a nice lockable lid so the powder doesn’t go everywhere
I have multiple powders at one time, I love this product so much that I have one at home, one at work, one in my car and one in my handbag!!!!
Great for a quick touch up during the day to cover up oily t zone ! I have used this product for years now and most likely will be using it for many years to come
Great productIf you have sensitive acne prone skin, this product is perfect for covering up without promoting more breakouts! Love this foundation for every day!
love thisI love this powder - I use it as a setting powder or since I can get oily in the t-zone I use it under foundation.
All day make upNude by nature mineral powder is the best! I never have to reapply when using this make up. Lasts all day.
My favourite everyday foundation!This mineral foundation is fantastic. I use it every day and it doesn’t cause breakouts. It is great for oily skin - it keeps my face matte all day!
Great For Sensitive SkinLive this mineral powder for the finishing touch, give great coverage without the cake look and feeling that other make up powders can. Plus side is that it's natural and great for your skin!
Great coverage & good value for moneyAmazing natural product, have been using this for years. Product goes a long way and has great coverage when used with a good primer!
Great everyday foundationI always come back to this foundation. It's so good for every day. Gives great coverage, is light weight and just makes your skin look better than it actually is. Great for the price as well.
Great productI’ve used many loose mineral foundations and I would have to say this one is definitely in my top five. Great, buildable coverage and natural look. I took one star off because I find a do need to reapply a few times a day which isn’t ideal but it’s not that much of a hassle.
best powderOne of those products that i keep coming back too, makes my foundation look even and flawless, can use this by itself or for extra coverage on top of foundation. prefer this over most mineral powders
Natural and lightweightThis product is great over bb cream or a light coverage liquid foundation and provides a smooth finish that isn't too heavy and which doesn't clog the skin. It's equally good when used alone if you're after something lightweight
Make up Bag StapleNude by nature mineral cover is a lovely loose powder foundation. This is my favourite powder and has been a staple in my make up bag since I started wearing make up. If you haven't tried this product already you definitely should do. It provides the perfect coverage for my face and evens out my skin tone. The product usually lasts me around 3-4months.
Nice coverageNice natural coverage. Is very lightweight and good for a basic look not full coverage.
My first choiceI’ve tried alot of other powders over the years but no matter what i buy and how expensive it is, nothing compares to the quality and coverage of this mineral powder, i have combination skin and can wear just powder for a minimal/natural look or over top of liquid foundation if i want full coverage. And it blends so well. My favourite makeup product!
Favourite everyday foundationI used to have a problem with breakouts after wearing foundation, but I have found that this foundation has done the trick in providing great coverage without breaking out afterwards. The only issue I have is that it doesn't sit very well on top of moisturiser, so I have to forgo moisturising in order to wear this, but overall I would definitely keep repurchasing.
Okay powderI have used this powder on a few different occasions - and tried it on its own, and also on top of liquid foundation. I think it gives a nice, light coverage. Despite this, I think that there is a lot better powders out there that are a lot more affordable. This products price is what bumps down the rating for me, as I don't find it is good enough to support that pricing.
expensive for what it is.I have used this both on its own and over the top of a liquid foundation for a much heavier cover. I have found that If I have large blemishes, it isn't great at covering those. It is quite light, and feels good to the touch. Its a little expensive for what it is.
My classic go toI’ve used this for many years now and its perfect for both light wear and over other foundation however these days I prefer a pressed powder!
Almost 5 StarsGreat pigment, great formula, but frustrating packaging; it's very easy to accumulate too much in the lid and waste product. On the positives, I have dry/sensitive skin and I never had any problems with the ingredients. Would recommend this to those with even oily skin as the product is light enough that it will still let your skin breathe. 4/5 stars.
Lightweight powderI have been using this powder in different shades (dependent on if I’m tanned or not) and feels so light on the skin. I wear it over a primer or moisturizer and it stays on all day! I have quite fair skin so I use the light/medium shade. Fantastic product!
LightThis is a great powder for a light coverage look.
I tend to use this on days where I was a more natural light look. I only need the smallest amount of the product to cover my whole face.
I wouldn't use this for a medium or fuller coverage look because it doesn't build well but it's great for a natural look. It's very lightweight and doesn't make my face look greasy by the end of the day.
Amazing natural cover!I have been battling with active acne for years now and always shied away from makeup as it would further aggravate my pimples but this foundation is so natural and lightweight it's quickly becoming an addiction to use! Skin still looks and feels like skin and the coverage is light however still evens out my skin tone. Would definitely recommend to someone looking for easy natural coverage.
its okI got this as a last minute coz my regular setting powder ran out. I have oily skin. Even though it didn't sit very well throughout the day, I decided to give it til the end of the powder to judge. Unfortunately it splits my makeup by the end of the day. Probably better for dry skin girls.
Great coverage, natural lookingA product I’ve used for many years. I can’t find quite the right shade so I buy medium & light/medium & mix the, together. The coverage is lovely - you can out it on really light for a really natural look (can hardly tell it’s there but it takes away the redness out of little blemishes etc) & it can go on thicker right up to a really strongly made up look. Must use with a kabuki brush to get the right application though - don’t bother with a sponge etc. it’s not drying like some powdered but a good moisturiser underneath will help it set well & for it to stay hydrated looking all day. I have mature skin, with dry cheeks & an oily tzone with acne’s scarring - this works for all that, even blendong my scarring & pigmentation so it’s pretty well covered without looking like I’ve used cover up. Good for a natural look with minimal effort.
Love of my lifeThis mineral powder is literally the only one I've ever used. My mother introduced it to me in my teenage years and now, at 26, I've never used another powder. I put it on after my foundation and it sets and blends everything wonderfully. I think I'll use it forever.
Great coverage!This is such a great mineral powder for combination skin, it does not peel, or block pores and lasts all day! It has such a light, natural coverage I will be definitely be purchasing this product again!
The best mineral foundation everI so love nude by nature. The first brand i ever used when first started wearing makeup amd still is one of my favourites. The mineral powder foundation is my go-to and have not found any other powder foundation that matches this one!
Used to love itI used the medium shade for a good 4-5 years.
I have very oily skin and this was perfect. Never budged (even at the beach) and I got compliments on how nice and natural my makeup looked all the time.
Never got pimples and my skin looked fabulous.
I have no idea why I changed makeup brands but I miss my nude by nature. Will purchase again once I finish my current foundation
Amazing mineral powder!I use this every time I wear makeup! I alternate between the light and light/medium colours pending on how tan I am. It provides such great cover! You can use it as setting power or as foundation. It's so soft and not heavy giving you a really natural look. It's such a great price too and last ages!
Probs the best mineral powder there isOkay, so this stuff is amazing.
You get a heap of product for the right price, and the coverage is really nice. I am quite oily but this controls the oil well.
I have had compliments on my complexion since using.. I got a sample size in a xmas advent calendar and once that had run out I came on here to buy the big one!
Recommend applying with a kabuki brush in a circular motion :)
Best mineral powder everI absolutely cannot live without this product. It covers all my imperfections, I don't need to use concealer or powder and it stays true all day. It's so quick to apply with the kabuki brush and just be careful when tapping the excess, I tend to use the lid to catch the excess powder or else I risk wasting the powder. It doesn't make me react and it's kind to my skin. Love it so much!!
