Nude by Nature is known for their award winning Natural Mineral Cover loose powder foundation. While I’m a big fan of the natural coverage you can get from loose powder, it’s not the easiest thing to carry around with you!
When the Nude by Nature Pressed Mineral Cover came across my desk, I knew I had to try it. As well as promising medium to full coverage, it contains skin nourishing ingredients such as kakadu plum, vitamin E, avocado oil, jojoba oil and shea butter. Plus it’s in a handy compact that I can keep in my handbag or throw in a suitcase for weekends away without worrying about spillage.
While I’m about as pale as you can get, the shade that some of you might be sampling in your September bellaboxes is Medium. This is actually the most common colour, and because the coverage starts off so light it will blend with most skin tones. I decided to try the same shade.
Application: I buffed the Pressed Mineral Cover over my face with a big soft brush. I then used a smaller brush to apply more in the areas that needed extra coverage – under my eyes, a few blemishes and the veins in my temples and above my eyes (this is where I need the most coverage).
bb tip: When you purchase the Pressed Mineral Cover from the online store (nudebynature.com.au) at the moment you receive a complimentary double sided brush for the perfect powder application.*
For the sake of these photos I have only applied the Pressed Mineral Powder to one side of my face, and the other is bare aside from moisturiser, mascara and eye pencil. You can see just how natural it looks. My freckles and the features that make me look human are still visible, but my skin tone is much more even and polished.
I consider this to be a medium coverage, and it is buildable to a much fuller coverage. And would you look at how well that Medium colour blends onto my pale skin!
How it wore during the day: I applied the Pressed Mineral Powder early in the morning, and then went about a regular day – public transport, meetings, running in and out of shops. It held up extremely well, even on my oily skin. Because it was a pressed powder I was able to just pop it in my bag and do a touch up in the late afternoon before I headed out for dinner.
Verdict: So often powders can make your skin look flat and chalky, but this was totally the opposite. This gives a lovely natural coverage that is buildable and looks great throughout the day. If you need more coverage try a little Nude by Nature Liquid Mineral Concealer on any blemishes or dark circles before you apply your powder. This is a definite win from me and will be finding a place in my beauty cabinet.
