Great for extra cover
I don't like using this on its own, it just looks cakey and not smooth at all. I love dusting this over my BB cream or tinted moisturiser. It works a treat that way, and really finds the right balance between matte and dewy which I love. The 'medium' colour has quite a bit of yellow under tone which suits me well.

Great Power Foundation
After being sick of using liquid foundations alone, as it caused my face to become really oily due to my combination skin, i finally bought Nude by Nature. I chose this because it is natural mineral makeup as i didn't want anything that would irritate my face. This powder is wonderful! It feels great the coverage is above average. It is also great to apply after liquid foundation to mattify your face. Highly recommended.
Using primer would really help with the coverage and it will last longer.
It is ideal for makeup for any occasion.

Ok for everyday wear but not the best for dry skin
I started using this just a couple of months ago. I have heard that it's a really great natural coverage foundation and it's good for dry skin too.
I found that it is ok for me to apply this mineral cover as a light dusting over my foundation or BB cream. However, I found if I apply this on its own, it looks really cakey and powdery on my dry skin. I also found that it was too drying if I apply too much of the mineral powder. If applied as a very light dusting, it does look quite nice and natural.
Overall it's an ok product but not the best for dry skin. I probably won't repurchase but I will keep using what I have right now.

Alright, but not worth the hype
I decided to give this a try when it went on sale and I can say I am glad I didn't pay full price for it. If you want a medium-full coverage, this is not for you. When I use this on its own, it is too light in coverage for my liking so I usually need foundation underneath. The medium is also a bit too dark for me and if you want a smooth application, I would recommend a good primer and a good powder brush. I think if you have clear skin and only want something light for everyday use, this would be ideal for you. There are many other mineral foundations that i prefer to this and i think if you want a fuller coverage, you would be best to go and get bareminerals foundation.
I find it goes on much nicer when I use a brush with natural fibres and I would recommend using a good quality primer underneath.
People with clear skin who just need a light coverage to use everyday.

Poor. Not worth its price.
This was my first official "foundation".
I will admit it does look like I'm not wearing make-up, But this is only for about the first 5 minutes before it starts to oxidize. The colour range is awful and ALL the shades (including the bronzer) oxidize and look orange.
Staying power? - Rubbish. Even with a primer and the finishing veil. You end up looking like you've rolled around in (golden) mud.
I was so disappointed in this rage.
I honestly don't even know what else I can say about this.
Sure it may be mineral, but its honestly not worth the price I paid and I will never again buy from this brand again.
I do not recommend this to anybody.

I absolutely love this mineral powder, excellent coverage, very even and flawless.
The only downfall is the price, I think $40 is a little too expensive for a powder. Whether I buy this again will be depending on how long the tub will last me. At this point I can see it getting used pretty quickly considering its a loose powder.

I never used to use foundation or powders on my face as they always left a visible 'layer'. Then I was recommended the Nude by Nature mineral make-up and I love it! It evens my skin tone and hides blemishes without looking like I have much make-up on. I also use the bronzer instead of a normal blush as it looks more natural. Would definitely recommend this product!

The most natural looking loose powder I have ever bought
First of all I got this in the 40% mid year sale at priceline for like $24 and can I just say it's amazing value, Ive been using it nearly everyday and I feel like there is still so much product left in the container... It gives a nice buildable coverage and I don't know why but for me it looks a lot better and more natural when used on top of a tinted moisturizer rather than a foundation.. It stays on almost all day without looking cakey, I did take one star off because sometimes it can break me out but I guess thats all hormonal most of the time.. Overall : a great affordable mineral powder :) Also love that its a natural brand because I do have sensitive skin
Use over a tinted moisturizer for a more natural look

This mineral cover gives a lovely finish on my skin without looking too yellow. It never appears flaky, and it gives a good coverage on my cheeks where I have broken capillaries. I know that the company sells a finishing veil to go over this, but I don't feel the need to purchase it as this gives enough coverage for my daytime makeup.
I am wondering whether the company has changed the formulation of this product because I purchased this a long time ago, and I didn't have any skin irritation. However, when I re-purchased this recently, my skin was slightly itchy for about 30 minutes after each application, but then the irritation went away.
I really appreciate this company making a mineral makeup free of bismuth oxychloride and talc as these are ingredients that are potentially harmful. I also love that this is made by an Australian company, and it is a product that I can easily buy in Priceline (as opposed to having to buy a mineral makeup on the Internet, which makes colour selection difficult).
I only gave this three stars due to the initial mild itching that I experience from this.

- feels light on the skin
- cannot tell your wearing makeup
- soothes the skin and skin breathes easily with this on
- includes SPF 15
- stays on the skin
- gets shiny throughout the day
- sinks into pores
- not enough coverage for blemished skin
Nude by natures mineral foundation is a nice break from the heavy and contesting ingredients in liquid foundations and I found it did not irritate my rosacea or acne at all. However my skin is oily and I found it stayed on my skin but by the end of the day my skin looks blotchy and shiny. I will continue to use up what I have left of it, but Im not sure if I like it or not.
