Great translucent powder
I really enjoyed using this translucent powder. Firstly I love the packing and how it matches the mineral foundation packaging. I used this powder with the lovely finishing brush. My only issue with this is when picking up the product it can be quite messy as the brush is not dense so a lot of control is required. A dense brush may be better suited to this product for better control. The powder does not have any smell. The texture is lovely and the silky finish it leaves on the skin is gorgeous. There is no texture issues and I didn’t find it to be matte at all which I really enjoy. More of a natural veil which just sets the mineral makeup so well. It just ensures the mineral foundation stays put and does end up too shiny. It wore well throughout the day. Definitely recommend this product.
Use where required to set skin with a lovely silky powder.

For a flawless finish with this Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing powder. If you thought all powders to finish your look were chalky drying beasts - (my experience, all too often!) then you will be pleasantly surprised by this gem that manages to set your make-up, but in a very gentle and non obvious way. If you could ever say a powder has soothing and nourishing properties - you could potentially say it about this one. Likely down to the brands insistence on no nasty ingredients. Such a dream to use with its coordinating brush. Dream team! When you don't have your very own Glam Squad - BE your very own Glam Squad. Sweep that luxurious feeling finishing powder across your face and be confident that it is not having a cling fest in a flakey, drying and icky manner, like so many of the other finishing powders out there. I do love the lovely rose gold lid of the pot - sometimes it looks irredescently rainbowy when it catches the light, and that's so okay with me. It is a Unicorn of a product, after all.
Look after your tools and products, and they'll look after you!
I daresay all skin types, in a broad stroke of recommendation, but there'll always be an exception to any product, but I truly feel that this is a powder that will be pleasing for many. Go, give it a swirl (of your brush!) Thanks to beautyheaven and NbN for helping me to discover all sorts of new Holy Grails through the very splendid Trial Team. Very honoured.

Long lasting Finishing Powder which doesn't clump
The Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder provides a lovely sheer finish helps control oil and shine and most surprisingly helped diminish the appearance of fine lines. I found that it set evenly, didn’t change the colour of my foundation and extended the time between touch-ups during the day without leaving my skin feeling dry.
The Nude by Nature Translucent Finishing Powder comes in a clear plastic tub with a rose gold lid which looks lovely. The tub has dark chocolate brown inserts moulded inside which add to the luxe look of this product and help with dispensing and minimising mess; there is also a mesh insert which is great as it allows you to easily load up the finishing brush with just the right amount of powder.
I used the Nude by Nature Translucent Finishing Powder primarily to set my makeup and to minimise shine on my nose and chin. I started by gently pushing the Finishing Brush into the mesh sifter in the Translucent Finishing Powder, I then gently tapped away the excess powder and then lightly brushed the powder over my entire face, concentrating on the T-zone. I love how soft my skin feels and the lovely sheer finish I achieved, found it easy to use and found it super easy to get even, long lasting coverage and great results.
The only reason I did not give 5 stars to this product is that I prefer a pressed powder as it is easier to carry with me for touch-ups during the day.

I trialled this translucent powder over the last week as part of the trial team. I used it over the top of my mineral foundation. I actually didn't know what the point of putting a powder over the top of another powder, and wasn't really expecting anything different. after I put on my primer, I applied my usual under eye concealer and then used this translucent powder to set it. I didn't apply too much, just a dusting, but it did a really good job of setting it. Then I applied my mineral foundation, and after a spritz of setting spray (let it dry) I applied this translucent powder. I applied only a small bit to start with to make sure I want putting on too much, but I was actually really pleasantly surprised at the finish I got. it brightened my face really nicely and gave a soft focus velvety finish. My makeup lasted really nicely and I didn't get oily. I'll definitely keep using this powder!

Fab finishing powder
I was very excited to try Nude by Natures Translucent Loose Finishing Powder and I wasn't disappointed.
This powder is so light and so very fine, it goes on like silk and looks amazing on your skin. It comes in a pretty little tub with a perfect sifting mesh applicator to get the powder on your brush without making a total mess.
Keeping my oily skin under control can be an effort, this finishing powder helped to keep my face from looking like an oil slick and helped to keep my makeup intact for most of the day. A few touch-ups on my t-zone and I was good to go.
Full of natural goodness for your skin and light reflecting particles for a flawless finish makes this a great product for everyone and I would definitely recommend it. It's super easy to use and looks beautiful, I'm sure it would work for all skin types.

Soft lightweight powder
I enjoyed using this product! I do find however, it leaves too much of a powdery finish for my preference, which is what it is so that's not the products fault! It goes on really smoothly, and feels very soft on the face. It seems to absorbs is and does have a matifying effect which I liked. The packaging is simple but effective, with netting to distribute the product easily. It is simple to use, which I liked and isn't overly complicated. I wouldn't choose to wear this powder everyday, just based on the finish it leaves as I prefer a more dewy look, based on my preference but I would definitely use it for a special occasion as it does leave that flawless look. Love nude by nature and it does hold up to the quality of their other products which are all so beautifully made.

Sits on top of make up
The packaging is on point, fits nude by nature's image of natural skin care. For a drug store brand, I think it's a pretty good image.
The powder is silky and feels good between my fingers. It was easy to pick up with the brush and easy to apply.
The powder was too light for my skin. I have Asian skin with a warm skin tone. So I couldn't apply it on my entire face which I did once but I had to start again because I just looked wrong. It would suit someone with a lighter complexion though and when I used it as a highlighter powder, it worked better.
However, it also highlights dry patches especially in winter. This is not nude by nature's fault. Every powder would accentuate dry skin.
Unfortunately I also felt it sat on top of my foundation and didn't really blend in which I don't like. Having said that, as the day went by, it 'melted' probably from the oils from my face.
To wrap up, reasonable quality product but not for me.
If you have darker (non caucasian) complexion, it works as a highlighter powder.
Caucasian women with oily skin and no fine lines.

Amazing translucent powder, perfect for setting and touching up foundation
This was my first time trying the Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder and boy was I impressed to say the least!
First off, I found the packaging to be very compact and sleek with a gorgeous gold lid. To apply, I tapped a small amount of powder from the sieve part of the container onto the lid and dipped the tip of the Nude By Nature Finishing brush into the powder, tapping away the excess before lightly brushing the powder all over my face, mainly focusing it around my T-zone where I tend to get oily the most throughout the day.
I found the powder to be very lightweight and breathable and didn't make my skin feel cakey. Aside from using it to set my foundation, I also found it great for touching up throughout the day for absorbing my excess oil and mattifying shine while still maintaining a natural glow.
The translucent powder is a finely milled powder which is made out of 10% natural ingredients and do not contain any hidden nasties which is a huge plus for me.

Perfect touch up product!
I absolutely loved this product! I’m a pale olive colour so usually look for a colour that I can use all year round and I found the medium colour to be perfect for this purpose for me. It is great for a quick no fuss makeup look! I found that it wasn’t heavy on my skin which as an oily skin person I need and love. I put it on once in thee morning and I found it lasted well all day for me, it is winter so I would be interested to see how it lasts during summer with my oily skin and whether I need to touch up more or if it gets cakey so I can’t really comment on what it’s like when you get all hot and sweaty as such at this point but I am pretty confident it won’t be an issue considering it’s performance so far!

Great finishing powder
As far as brushes go, this one is alright. I have found that all the nude by nature brushes are pretty much the same in terms of usability. The thing I like about this brush is that it’s light and fluffy, and doesn’t tug on the skin. The only downside is that it doesn’t pick up much product, so you have to keep dipping in again and again go get enough colour payoff. I’d say this brush is a great one to just pop in your bag on a day out to touch up over the course of the day, but I wouldn’t really use it to apply makeup.
Overall not my top pick, but I’ll of course keep on using it. Haven’t washed it yet so we will see how that goes in terms of how it will hold up over time. The domed shape is also really nice

silky smooth finishing powder
It is so smooth and fine, which feels gorgeous on the skin. So smooth and has a slight blurring effect. Love how it doesn't settle in any lines or creases - makes it really nice to use on top of concealer or eye primer to set it and make that every shadow and eyeliner last the whole day! It extends your makeup so that at the end of the day I am still taking off basically the amount that I put on at the start of the day! A fantastic thing because what's worse than going to all the effort of doing a perfect, full face of makeup to have it melt off during the day? Such a win there. I love how there isn't any fragrance, which can sometimes be irritating.
Can have a very slight pale cast on the skin if you don't tap off enough excess. It's not to bad but you need to make sure you have the right amount of product before sweeping across your face.
make sure there isn't too much powder left before applying

Perfect finishing product and so silky!
This product is great! Especially around the eyes it's perfect to finish off a look and lighten under my eyes and forehead. It goes on so smoothly (also thanks to the silky finishing brush) and is that perfect touch to finish off a look.
I love that it helps mattify my makeup and it's honestly so silky ( I need to repeat that)!
Again the packaging is super cute and is great in that it doesn't all come into the lid between uses! The only complaint is that you waste the excess by not being able to tap it into the lid and having to tap it into a sink or somewhere else.
I think this is a great product to finish off the already wonderful nude by nature range and I love how their products are natural which I think is so important these days with everyone being so concerned about low-tox and natural ingredients.
That finishing touch on all makeup looks!

'Clean' Finishing Powder
Before this trial, I dabbled with other natural foundations but have not repeat purchased as they have either been too hard to apply/blend and I was not convinced they created the same finish as my cheaper, nastier alternatives...
Recently, however, I have taken a closer look and placed more importance on my health and using 'clean' products on my skin, clothes and in my home. I try to buy natural wherever possible and am slowly switching out products that are harmful to my health and the environment.
I found this powder paired well with both liquid and powder foundation using the Nude by Nature Finishing Brush. I mainly look to a finishing powder to soak up any extra oil/ remove shine from my makeup application and also to help my makeup last the day. This Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder ticked all the boxes! I also really appreciate the powder being translucent so I don't have to switch up products between seasons!
Convenient and easy to use packaging, with a 'net' which releases the powder when tapped out, which means you aren't wasting any product swiping it every which way compared to other brands I have used that are set in a pot. This packaging is also a lot more hygienic than the pot set finishing powders meaning I am not re-wiping my face with bacteria every time I go back to use it!
Very impressed with this natural mineral finishing powder, easy to apply, lightweight finish and long-lasting!

Very nice container. Love the idea of the packaging inside that allows no excess product wastage, which is functional as its not messy and the product is easy to access and get out compared to other brands of translucent powder containers which aren't as easy to access and you risk getting powder everywhere. The rose gold top is stunning and easily looks like a designer brand. Nice to see the product changing its usual look. The white packaging is simple but modern which is nice and perfect. Appealing to young and old and looks nice displayed in the bathroom or on makeup table. Used the product on my laugh lines and under my eyes. The product lasted all day with no problems. It kept my makeup matte for most of the day. Only required one touch up. LOVE the smell of the product which makes it a pleasure to use.

Good mineral translucent powder
Very fine translucent powder that would suit most skin tones. I’m always very light handed when using any translucent powder and often just use it on my tzone.
It prolonged the wear of my mineral foundation through the day. I also used it touch up, I just blotted they areas I was shiny with some tissue and used the translucent powder very lightly over the top.
No flashback that I could tell but I only used my phone camera.
I used it over the NBN mineral foundation and a cream concealer. I was expecting it to crease or cake and it very surprisingly didn’t do either.
The packaging makes it easy to apply and more importantly prevents any mess - which is usually the problem with loose mineral powders.
I also like the tubs are stackable, so it it takes up the tiniest room in my drawers. Usually just one corner.
There is no scent to the powder and worked well on my sensitive skin.
Use a light hand while applying
Most skin tones.

For smooth, glowing skin
I’ve never used a loose finishing powder, so when Beauty Heaven offered me the chance to trial this one I was keen to see if it would be life changing. Or even just a drastic improvement on foundation on it’s own. I have quite oily skin so the promise from Nude By Nature that it would help control oil and shine was alluring.
Unfortunately for me I didn’t notice any difference between using it and not, in terms of shine. To start with I certainly noticed a matte finish, but after a few hours my usual oily shine was back. I am not one to reapply during the day so I have to be content with what it will offer with one application. What I did notice was that my foundation lasted longer. So even though there was still my usual shine, it definitely helps makeup stay put for longer. I also felt like my skin looked smoother and more luminous.
I found the packaging to be luxurious, with the clear jar making it easy to see how much powder is in there. The method of getting powder onto the brush by pushing it on the mesh sifter is great, though still a little messy when I end up with too much powder on my brush.
I will continue to use this powder as a makeup setter, but long term I think I’ll look for a pressed powder.

Great matte finish and staying power
I was lucky enough to be on the trial team for this product. I don't use finishing powder very often so can only compare it to the Chanel product that I have, and I found that it stacks up! The packaging is classic Nude by Nature and I like the smaller opening so that the product doesn't spill out or feel wasted as with a lot of other powder products. The brush provided with the trial was lush and soft as well - highly recommend purchasing with the product. The product is white but turns completely translucent once it hits your skin, totally mattifying it and making it seems like your pores have disappeared! It didn't look ghosty and blended in really well as well as had really good staying power, keeping me oil-free through the night which I sometimes struggle with. It gave a really nice flawless finish equal to my higher priced product and I will definitely be purchasing again.
A little bit goes a long way - don't get carried away!

Has a nice glow and long lasting
Thanks BH for the opportunity to trial this.
On opening this I found the lid of the packaging to be quite unique as it has a "stopper/plug" in the centre that prevents too much loose powder getting everywhere inside the lid.
As far as translucent and finishing powders go this was fairly on par with other brands of similar quality that I've tried. Other than the lid there was nothing noticeably different about this.
After applying the mineral powder I used this with the accompanying brush and did find that I didn't need to use too much. It definitely helped to set the powder underneath and I noticed it slightly blurred the pores. It did nothing though to help with the build up of powder on my tennis ball textured face.
While that's not the products fault it was still just adding a layer to something I wasn't thrilled about to begin with.
I will say though there was a glow from this that lasted throughout the day and helped me look past the face fur. It also helped me control my shine.

Affordable and effective
Fine white translucent powders are something that has become a new essential in make up routines. This is just one of them and does the job well.
I am not big on make up and even though I have oily skin - which means I really need to use products like this, I don't really use them much. More layers always make me feel like my skin can't breath and that starts bothering me a lot.
I can't tell you if this makes make up last longer as the current lock down means I am using make up even less and didn't have any opportunity to stress test it, but the one time that I did put on make up (just to use this) and covered it with this find fairy dust like product, I was happy with the result. Nice finish, adding a bit of glow and didn't make my pores as blocked as I had feared - so that's a win. No fragrance so that's a good news for anyone with sensitive skin.
Overall a very decent product, no disappointments, no complains and the price is very affordable as well.

Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder
Super happy with this product! It does everything I need it to. It’s very lightweight, easy to use and helps control the shine and keep my makeup looking nicer all day. I love knowing it’s natural too. The formula is pretty good and will be a staple in my makeup products
It feels smooth and not cakey on my skin like other brands can, is quite affordable and has incredible staying put power without the need to be constantly reapplying during the day or night.
It also doesn't make your face look white and it does what they say it does. 100% happy girl here :)
This powder sets to a creamy feeling, not a matte feeling like most powders, but it does help my makeup last quite long.
The only negative I have with this powder is that a lot comes out onto the brush because of the holes in the seal being a little too big for what they are whereas other brands don't have that in their products.
