Makes skin glow.. if you already have good skin
This product is really nice and gives you a really natural look! However if you are looking for something to cover up imperfections this probably isn't for you. When im having a good skin day I love this product as it gives me a lovely natural glow.. but on those bad skin days I stay well well away from this.

Love it for light-medium coverage
I thought Nude by Nature would be a gimmick because of the cheesy TV Shopping ads, but decided to try it a couple of months ago after finishing my Bare Minerals powder.
I have been really impressed- not a gimmick at all! The coverage is light-medium, and buildable according to your preferences. It looks natural and fairly subtle, but seems to make your skin look so much healthier. To be fair, my skin is quite good with few blemishes, just some occasional tiny spots of redness and a few blackheads. I have dry sensitive skin, and this product has been amazing for me.
The other day a lady at a store said to me what beautiful skin I have, and this was an amazing complement because I suffered from horrible ezcema through my teens and any compliment to by (now much better) skin means the world to me! The Nude just gives me a healthy, slightly dewy complexion.
The only thing is that its not super long lasting.. but I forgive this con because its a natural product with no nasties which is often what makes foundation stay on your face like glue. I'd rather know that I'm putting something safe and natural on my face than have a long lasting foundation.
BTW, if you want heavy coverage this isn't for you!
Not for heavy coverage
Perfect for those who want light-medium coverage that looks natural! Also has been good for my sensitive, dry skin.

not for me
I bought this in a kit with the primer and kabuki brush on sale at Myer. I have been on the hunt for a good foundation whether liquid or powder for a long time and have been very very scared about trying new stuff on my face ever since the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light broke me out horribly a couple of months ago.
I used the kabuki brush I received in the kit on 1 side of my face and my Real Techniques powder brush on the other side. I was really disappointed with the way it sat on my skin. I used a very light hand to apply it and it still caked up badly and looked very very unnatural on me. I have olive skin and the medium shade did not really match me very well. I only tried it once and don't know if this would have cause any breakouts on me if I left it on for longer or if I used this regularly but it did feel like it as clogging up my pores and did not feel light at all on my skin.
Needless to say I will not be purchasing the full size or using up the small one I have.

Best in beauty
I hadn't used a foundation for almost 20 years and had lost all confidence using one, buying one every so often and being disappointed and trying again after a few months or years! Then I tried Nude by Nature. Game changer for me completely.
I apply this lightly though if you want a heavier coverage this is easily buildable. It provides me with instant even natural skin tone which lasts almost the entire day with barely any touch up needed until after about 6-7 hours. This feels so lovely on the skin, so light and breathable. I do have the powder to use with this product however during the winter I haven't had to use this as the Natural Mineral Cover sits well on my skin on its own and the powder can make it a little dry for my liking however anyone who likes a matte finish would love that combination. I may have to use it again over the top as the warmer weather comes in and my skin becomes a little oiler however the effect is still the same, even tone, natural looking skin. Also effective at toning out redness.
I love that this is a natural product. So easy for beginners. Used with Nude by Nature brush this works fantastically. As you tip some product into the lid to use it I've found this particular brush picks up everything in the dish so be careful not to pour too much product out! A large pot has lasted me months and months. Great value for money.
I leave the sticker over the holes and just punch a couple out to avoid tipping out too much.
This would be great for oily skin especially if followed by the Finishing Veil.
Great for beginners or the novice!

Best in Beauty 2014 nomination
I have been using mineral foundation for some time. I like mineral foundation because normal BB creams and liquid foundations tend to make my face shiny and heavy a few hours after application. I have dry, sensitive skin but my T-zone can get oily during the day, and mineral foundation helps with the T-zone oil control for me.
Their online shade guide is great because they use models of different ethnicities to indicate what shade you might be. I currently use Nude by Nature mineral cover in Medium. Medium is a little dark for my fair Chinese skintone, but one shade lighter (Light/Medium) is too pink-toned for me. I don't mind Medium as it makes me look a little tanned, but not too far off my real skintone. The mineral cover comes in a 15g jar, and it has a plastic cover with little holes. When you use the foundation, you tap the jar and dispense the foundation through the little holes onto the jar lid, then you use a mineral foundation brush to swirl around the foundation to apply onto your face in circular motion.
The mineral foundation coverage is quite light, but you can build coverage by going over the required areas with extra foundation. It evens out my skintone effectively without making it look cakey. I would use extra concealer afterwards for a more flawless finish, but most of the time I don't need it.
This is such a great product, it's easy to use and it gives you a lightweight, even finish. It's not the cheapest drugstore mineral foundation, but you get 15g of product, which lasts a long time. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to try mineral foundation.

Best in Beauty 2014 - Surprisingly good.
I started using Nude By Nature after a glowing recommendation from a sales assistant at Priceline. I had seen the terrible ads on TV and had pre-formed an opinion that this stuff would be rubbish. I decided to give it a go as it was on sale, and was better value for money than the mineral foundation I was previously using. I had very low expectations and anticipated disappointment. As it turns out, I really like this stuff. I have been using it most days for a few years now. Since I have been using it so long it seems I actually like this stuff, and, thus, it gets a vote from me for best foundation.
Nude By Nature comes as a finely-milled loose powder. The packaging changed recently and you can now cover the sifter – genius! It is now one of the most least-messy and travel-friendly mineral foundations I have come across. The lid is also big so it is perfect for swirling you brush into the product.
So the packaging is decent, but how exactly does it perform? Really well, in my opinion. You don’t need a lot of product, the key is to buff it in good! You can layer it up to your desired coverage without looking cakey. The end result is natural perfection. Like all good mineral foundations, it looks like you are wearing nothing at all – on your face, that is!
Perhaps the downfall of this foundation is that its wear time is greatly reduced if you don’t set it with a powder. If you have really oily skin and don’t set it, you’ll also strike trouble. I personally like to set it with MAC’s Blot Powder. It keeps it in place all day, and controls oiliness amazingly well. Rimmel Stay Matte does a pretty good job too! I should also add that Nude By Nature has not caused me one breakout – even when my skin has been pimple city.
Overall, Nude By Nature is a great option if you want a natural-looking, no-fuss mineral makeup. It does the job and I envisage I will continue to use this great product for many years to come. Totally worthy of some Best in Beauty recognition!

My 'go to' product
Best product on the market for mineral cover. I have used this product for about 2 years now and it has never disappointed. It is so easy to apply with the nude foundation brush and lasts several weeks of daily usage until a new one is needed. I use the tone 'medium' and I have fair skin and blends perfectly to my colour to give a natural tan look without looking too different to my natural skin colour. It feels light but has great coverage. Also quite inexpensive compared to other products of the same quality - I recommend this to anyone and everyone!!
Works really well with Garnier BB Cream as a base foundation for a stronger coverage, if desired
Teenagers - quick cover up for school or uni
Anyone who doesn't want to wear heavy makeup

Best coverage i have ever had!
I have always had some serious acne scarring problems, I can never leave my house with foundation because I am quite self conscious about it.
I needed a lightweight product, great coverage and did not aggravate my acne. This product goes amazingly over my concealer and really covers my blemishes whilst still showing an even skin tone.
Been using it for years and ill never look back!

Light lady! best stuff out!
I am a light in this product and can stretch into the fair during winter. I love this product and always have a spare ( i think i have about 3 spares at the moment). great for all skin types and even sensitive skin. For those on the oily side it is best to use the mineral veil too.
I love the coverage of this product and that you can build it to get a heavier look when needed. It can get a little messy so I always apply it in my PJs or just in a bra. It can be used alone, over a BB or CC cream or over a foundation (but be light handed with it).
I honestly cant rave about this enough. It is my HOLY GRAIL of products.

Best powder foundation I have used
I have tried lots of powders but never have been happy until I used nude. It is able to cover my blemished skin and is long lasting. It leaves your skin feeling like there is nothing on it and hasn't caused my skin to break out like other products. Even coverage and the colour is a perfect match.
