Good if you want a quick everyday look

I finally caved in to the media influence, telling me to try this "amazing" natural mineral foundation. I'm the modern day equivalent of Snow White, aka my skin is quite fair. I purchased it in the 'Light Skin tones' shade, and was a bit disappointed to see that it turned rather yellow-orangeish on my skin. It doesn't stay that long, but it's practical for days I want to rush to uni, when I don't really give a damn how I look. I wouldn't wear this at night as I don't think it provides that flawless, smooth finish I want. It seeps into any lines you have and makes any blemishes look like crusty biscuits. It didn't irritate my skin and did cover some redness. Although, having a severe lung condition, I found myself coughing from the amount of powder that flies about when you are dispensing the product. I'd rather stick with some concealer and Mac Skin Finish Natural on days where I don't want the full coverage of my Revlon Colorstay and matching Revlon powder.

Ideal for

Sensitive skin is definitely catered for with this product, fairly good for skin that is prone to redness as well.

Best for quick simple make up

I love this! It's the 2nd mineral powder I've ever used. I was using the Revlon mineral powder for nearly a year but it stopped looking as smooth, perhaps due to age, climate changes etc.
but I love this, it's easy, doesn't break me out or leave me feeling made up.
I find the more I buff it the better the coverage.


Dip your brush into the product, turn upside down & tap it on a hard surface, saves wastage & avoids the big clouds of powder when buffing it in

I like it

I don't use this on its own, it makes my face cakey and it's not smooth. I usually just dust this over my BB cream for a bit of extra coverage and oil control. The finish is not matte nor dewy, it's somewhere in the middle, which I really like in powder foundations.

A Little Goes A Long Way

I've been using NBN Mineral Foundation for a few years now and i wouldn't use any other mineral foundation. Depending on the occasion, For a night out i use my concealer,natural glamour air mist spray foundation then i dust the NBN foundation over top along with the Finishing Veil. It is long lasting and perfect if you go out clubbing or sweat. If its day to day wear i use primer then the NBN Mineral Foundation and Finishing Veil and Viola, Done.. I takes all of 10 minutes to do my makeup and i ready for the day. Perfect for any lighting, sensitive skin and it doesn't sink into the lines or creases on your face and it feels like your not wearing anything at all. I find my pots last around 3 months sometimes longer and for the price you cant go wrong! Anywhere from $15-$30 depending on where you buy from.


When applying tap off any excess ( you only need a very small amount) and apply in small circular motions. It blends really well using this method and covers any imperfections.

Ideal for

Day or night, people with sensitive skin, if you want a natural glow and girls who don't have a lot of time to spend on their makeup routine.

Most Suited to Oily Skin Types

This is by far the best powder foundation I have ever come across.
I have quite oily skin and no liquid foundation works for me, in both coverage and texture.
I love that this foundation is lightweight and buildable if applied in layers.
I find one light layer of this over concealer is all I need to last a full day, with the help of primer and MAC's Fix +.
The overall look of this foundation is flawless and I have received multiple compliments on my skin (even when average underneath) while wearing this and have/would recommend to anyone.


Apply in light layers to avoid looking 'cakey' and to give a more natural finish.

Ideal for

Combination to oily skin types.

it's goes on smooth, stays in place and covers pretty well. only problem is that i have dry skin and it made my skin feel a bit more dry than usual after a few hours.

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.

Ideal for

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.

Ideal for

People with clear skin who just need a light coverage to use everyday.
