Nude By Nature Pressed Mineral Powder in 'Light' - $39.95 (Shop!)
I have recently been using this lovely pressed mineral powder in the shade 'Light' which is my general shade when it comes to facial makeup products as my skin is quite light, but not fair. Upon opening the very glam packaging (sleek box and cloth pouch complete with dark brown round compact & sponge) I was quite surprised at how dark the powder appeared! I had to double check I had the correct shade, which I did. (Phew!)
I usually do not like to use any kind of sponge when it comes to applying makeup as for me the product seems to get lost in the sponge and does not transfer well onto my skin. However this sponge wasn't too bad, still I prefer to use a fluffy brush as it seems to get the powder the cover more even and give a more flawless finish.
I am really impressed with the coverage, especially when it comes to my pores. Mine are a bit big around my cheeks near my nose and the powder covered them quite well without settling into them even towards the end of the day which is what I normally experience.
I am enjoying the light feeling this gives on my skin and I find I can get away without having to touch up throughout the day, however as it gets hotter as Summer approaches I am sure I may need to at least once as I tend to get a bit oily when it gets super hot.
Big points to Nude By Nature for being cruelty free, naturally derived and Australian made!
A beautiful product I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new pressed powder to try. A great handy size which fits perfectly into a small makeup bag or purse and the mirror is a 100% must for me as I am always rummerging around my bag in search of mine which seems to live a life of it's own and only reappears once I have given up looking for it and no longer need it!
