More suited for those who don't have dry skin
Nude by Nature translucence finishing powder is meant to be used after applying the Nude by Nature Mineral foundation to extend the wear of the make up.
It comes in a similar packaging to the nude by nature mineral cover foundation with a sifter so you don't make a big mess. It's best apply with the finishing brush which is like a large powder brush.
I tried applying this after I applied the mineral foundation. I don't tend to use finishing powder over mineral/powder foundation but for the purpose of this trial I used it every time after I applied the mineral foundation.
The finishing powder has a very fine texture but unfortunately I didn't really like this translucence loose finishing powder. Because I have dry skin and in winter it gets even drier this really did not work for me. I found that it made my make up look cakey and was patchy in the dry areas of my skin. The finishing powder also is quite light on my skin as I have a medium skin tone. For me to make it not look drying on my skin I would have to mist my face after applying the powder.
I also tried applying under eye to see whether it would brighten the area but it highlighted my fine lines and dry patches more.
Overall it's an okay product and probably more suited for those who dont have dry skin

Nude by Nature Translucent Powder
I really like the Nude by Nature brand, they are vegan and they feel a lot more natural compared to the other cosmetic brands that I have ever used.
This powder feels really gentle on my skin and the look of the powder on my skin looks really good, I look like I am a really nice glow and overall, I feel great as well. It is really pretty on my skin.
I feel like the lids could be a little bit bigger so it is easier to handle and not too tricky to open or close or put down while I get some of the product out to put on my skin. I feel like this is the part that gets quite messy and always makes me not want to apply or not bother because it can get so messy.
The powder looks really sparkly and shiny, I really like the look of this product.

An excellent refiner
I received the Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder. I am a big fan of translucent powders to finish over foundation but I do find some powders do not sit well and look flaky on my skin. they can also really dry out my face too. So I was hoping this one would be ok.
Upon opening the jar, i was really impressed by the design (which is hard to describe). Like with their Mineral Coverage Powder, it seems to have like a circle netting in a dipped area so that your brush can easily pick up the powder without taking up too much. I usually use true translucent powders but this one seems to look like it has a bit of a tint to it, but you really don't notice it. the powder is very fine and sits nicely when brushed on. There's no really strong scent either which is great.
I was able to pair this with a supplied Finishing Brush from Nude by Nature (thank you) and it was perfect to brush the powder on my face.
I must admit, I was able to pair the Translucent Finishing Powder with their Mineral Coverage Powder so both teamed together made for decent staying power for when in the office. It never flaked or left my face dry. My face actually felt and looked smooth and perfect. Already loving it.

So glad I got to try this. I’ve used translucent powders before but most of those creases. This I used to set my concealer and I’m so glad it didn’t crease at all. It was so easy to apply and it help set my concealer. It doesn’t even have the slightest pigment at all and it’s great to set your concealer etc. it didn’t crease under my eyes, it doesn’t look look cakey or heavy at all and it’s long wearing. I only touched up just one during an eight hour day. It’s a great fix and It’s long wearing. I highly recommend this product. Give this a go. Witt just a quick touch up once a day I was able to keep away my oiliness. This brand is very affordable and it does the job and for me not having my concealer crease is a great win. Love it

A high-end rival
I have quite dry skin so experimenting with what product combinations work for me is part of the makeup process. I’ve used a few translucent powders in the past and have found there to be a huge distinction between a ‘good’ powder and a ‘bad’ one. The best translucent powder I’ve ever used is a hefty $74, so I’m happy to say this little beauty from Nude By Nature could be a substitute.
Firstly, the packaging is gorgeous and very high-end. It’s also functionally ideal for powder products and a huge upgrade from the standard powder containers you need to shake into the lid.
I first tried setting my favourite tinted sunscreen (Mecca’s In Good Light) that, as an SPF, can get a little too shiny in the t-zone. I found the powder to work nicely over my face and left a nice cover with the sunscreen. It countered the shine throughout the day without making it too matte - on my skin, matte usually leads to dryness.
I next tried it with my favourite foundation, Australis’ Stay Put. I liked how it set initially, leaving a beautiful finish, however over time I found my cheeks a bit too dry and almost cakey. My t-zone stayed looking great, just the naturally dryer parts of my face didn’t wear too well.
Unless I’m using a product that is inherently shiny, like SPF products, I will only set foundation around my t-zone, or at least apply there first and just lightly brush over the rest of my face. I’m happy with the overall finish and the longevity of this powder!
Dry skin probably doesn’t need this applied all over, focus on the t-zone.
Setting shiny sunscreens, t-zones, and oilier skin for a nice glow without an overly matte finish.

Perfect finishing powder all the time!
This is a great translucent powder to finish my look all the time. I got hook since the first day BH team sent me this powder.
I was sceptical whether more powder will make my look too heavy and my lines looks obvious or not, but it all gone when I tried this powder.
After a few weeks trialling this powder, I become more and more addicted to this look. So natural and light finished!
It is not heavy and absorb instantly any shiny or oily spot on my face. The product itself come with rose color lid and beautiful sleek look. No perfume smelled and made from natural ingredients. I would recommend everyone who love to touch up their look daily, to tey this powder.
The color is translucent and won’t affect your foundation underneath it. It will perfect your look all day long! Thank you BH team for sending this to me. Love it!
Use it after the foundation(either liquid or powder) to enhance the longevity of your make up. Tap it but not too much.

Covers up shine and goes on smoothly
I have never used translucent powder before so this wa a great opportunity to trial one from a brand that I love ! Mineral based nude by nature has been a great brand and I enjoy their products as they are less harmful than other brands to my skin.
The translucent powder went on smoothly and over any products that I already had in my face. It reduced shine and gave a bit of a glow that I thought made my skin look fresh and pretty. However it did wash me out slightly as it is the middle of winter and I’m already quite fair. I do think it would work really well in summer or autumn when I’m not so white or have such dry skin .
I am looking forward to using this more in the warmer months to see how It performs on my skin.
Overall a good addition to your makeup bag - it is a bit large though so may be hard to carry in your handbag.
A little is good - don’t overdo it
Anyone but probably best For fairer Skinned beauties - hoping they have other shades?

I’m new and converted
So, I am new to the world of translucent powders and I was particularly excited to trial this one from nude by nature as I like to sometimes only wear concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes - and this is perfect for setting my face!
I haven’t noticed much whiteness being left on my face, however I do use it quite sparingly and under the eyes (which needs to be brightened anyway) and I have been wearing it to work to touch up my oily face in the arvo when I have a lovely t-zone shine haha.
I have not at all noticed any breakouts after using it on my oily skin type.
Overall, I have been really happy using the mineral translucent powder and I would likely buy again in the future, especially since it is 100% natural ingredients and contains no toxic ingredients often found in makeup.
You don’t need to use much
Those looking for an affordable, more ‘clean’ setting powder

A new experience
I have never used a translucent powder or finishing powder before. So I have nothing to compare this to. However, I can tell you that I feel my foundation stayed on a lot longer, and I didnt find it coming off if I was to hug my husband or change my shirt. I am not sure if thats what is supposed to happen but it definately stayed on a lot longer.
I tested this by only covering one side of my face with the translucent powder for the day and found that, by the afternoon when I went to remove my makeup, the side without the translucent powder was definately showing some of the imperfections on my skin alot more. There was uneven redness coming through. Where as the side with the translucent powder held up quite a bit better.
So I am sold on this product, gone are the days of getting an hour into an event, going to the rest room only to find I look like a mess and ruining my ability to enjoy myself because my make up sucks. I feel so much more confident to wear foundation now.

Natural yet flawless
The Nude By Nature Mineral Product is better than using a foundation in my.oponoon. Dab a small amount on the brush and it matches in with your skin tone looking natural. Beautiful pot with fine powder. I have sensitive skin and this had no reaction to my skin. Leaves skin looking flawless and natural on minutes. Using in conjunction with the Nude By Nature Translucent Product for best results. No nasty perfumes or chemicals that cause damage to your skin this world in the oppositr and what's even better is it lasts all day long. No feeling of only fdsodue the powder leaves skin looking light and fresh . They are brilliant with the Nude By Nature Brushes. Nice big, soft brushes leaves you flawless all day long. There s also no hard colour matching to find the right shade because this seems t o blend in with your natural time. I would just recommend using a primer for the fine lines
If your an older woman Is recommended a primer or something under first as it did show the lines around my eyes

Beautiful finish from Nude!
Thjs is one of an amazing translucent powder I have ever owned.
The product is high quality and so smooth. The particles are really really soft smooth and very easy to apply to our skin.
You need a good powder brush to apply this seamlessly.
I use this product after using my liquid foundation or my powder foundation.
The result are great and doesn’t dissappoint at all. Make sure that you don’t repeat the stroke too much, because it will create fine lines around your face.
The product itself does look royal, loos nice and shiny beautiful packaged.
It doesn’t smell anything like fravrance added too, great of you have sensitive skin. It doesn’t iritate my skin so far after few week trialling this daily.
My make up looks flawless and it last longer than before. Thanks BH team!
I look forward to keep using this until finish & have already plan to purchase this when they become available.
Use it after the mineral foundation to complete the look

Best packaging for a loose powder to date!
This powder was great for mattifying my nose in between lengthy zoom calls, usually only requiring one touchup during the day. I couldn't detect any fragrance and the powder was gentle on my skin. I've had absolutely no breakouts while using this product! Additionally, it was easy to blend and apply.
I really appreciate the thought that has gone into the packaging with this translucent powder. As far as thoughtful packaging goes, this has to be my favourite loose powder dispenser to date. It was incredibly easy to control the amount of powder that I wanted to pick up either by bouncing my brush on the mesh dispenser with different strengths (light for a little and a harder tap for a lot), or by tipping it onto the lid. I also appreciate the cylinder that is built into the lid that stops ridiculous amounts of powder from dispensing during transportation.

Lightweight finishing powder
I received this powder as part of a trial and used it over the top of the Mineral Powder foundation. It is a good finishing powder that gives a nice matte finish, I was happy with the results when I used it over the powder foundation. It doesn’t have any scent it doesn’t change the colour of your foundation and it’s a fairly fine powder. I liked the mesh applicator in the pot, it made it easy to get the right amount of product on the brush without wasting too much or making a huge mess. The only thing I didn’t like is that it didn’t seem to control shine on my face for very long. I needed to reapply the powder after two or three hours to keep my makeup looking fairly matte, which didn’t seem like long enough on days when I was really busy. Apart from this, I liked the powder, especially the finish it gave. I could layer it over the foundation powder and my makeup still looked natural and lightweight.
Use a big, fluffy brush to help spread the powder evenly.
People who want a natural finish on their makeup.

Nice powder to finish off.
Thank you Beautyheaven and Nude by Nature for the opportunity to trial this mineral foundation.
I have been struggling with some very red, angry, and flaky areas on my face, and I was worried that this powder might accentuate the look of the dry areas. Thankfully, I was left pleasantly surprised. I used the Nude by Nature powder foundation first, before finishing off using the translucent powder and finishing brush. I found it really silky on the skin, and it did not look heavy or cakey. Nor did it highlight my dry patches! I tried it with and without using primer underneath, and found it performed perfectly either way. I also trialed using the translucent powder over the top of my liquid foundation, and it was just as good. It kept me from looking too oily, but also didn't leave me with a cakey or too-matte finish. I am also really impressed with the sleek packaging, the lid has a neat depression on the inside, meaning that the powder won't spill in to the cap if you're travelling or drop it etc

A must in the makeup bag!
As part of the trial I received the Nude by Nature Translucent powder along with it's finishing brush #5.
The product comes in a box with inbuilt mesh to filter the powder to avoid excess of product on the applicator.
You still need to dust off a bit before applying it onto your skin.
This product works great for setting your make-up and finishing your look.
Works great for T-zone, under eyes, making your lipstick long lasting and smoothing the scars and pigmentation.
If you're after a dewy look or even a matte look for your make-up this is a must for all make-up lovers.
Locks in the make-up and keeps it in place as well as absorbing the oil or sweat.
As this is a loose powdered product, be careful of not spoiling your clothing with the product droppings. Make sure you tap off the excess and then apply it with the Finishing brush for the best desired results.
Use generously as you will be tapping off the excess of product in order to avoid spoiling your clothing.
For Dewy or Matte make-up look. Can be used to make lipstick provide a longer duration of stain and make it non-transferable.

Perfect for my skin
Thank you, Bh for giving me the opportunity to try this product.
As with the first product, this also comes in a round container with a rose gold lid and a little stopper in the lid which stops the powder spilling out when closed. The container contains 12g of product which will last a decent amount of time.
What I liked about it:
- the powder is very finely milled
- no scent as its fragrance-free
- really makes the skin look smooth
- mattified my skin but didn't make it look dry or cakey
- made the mineral cover last longer for me
- helped control oil and shine on my face
- only need a small amount to cover the whole face and neck
This along with mineral cover is my new favorite combo which I will be using from now on as I have been looking to using more natural products on my face.
Use small amounts and tapping excess off is important.
combo to oily skin as it might be too drying for those with dry skin.

I was lucky enough to be selected to be on the trial team for Nude by Natures Translucent Loose Finishing Powder. I really enjoyed trailing this product, the packaging is lovely and feels luxurious wrapped in nude by natures signature rose gold pot. The translucent powder itself, is easy to apply as the packaging doesn’t allow it to go everywhere. On application it instantly creates a flawless finish and sets your makeup in place, by the end of the day the powder has ensured my skin doesn’t look oily and messy and allows for a matte finish extending the length of wear. My skin is prone to becoming shiny throughout the day so I found the powder incorporated easily into my makeup routine, ensuring great oil control. I applied this product in the morning to set my makeup and took it with me on the go to ensure a flawless finish throughout the day. Would recommend to anyone with oily skin.
Take it with you on the go for oil control

frash flawless finish
I was so greatfull and excited to be a part of this trial team. Thanks BH and Nude by Nature. This fabulous translucent powder make up comes in a large genorous circular tub, shimmery shiny lid and looks expensive but really offers value for money. The compact has a built in dispenser that dispenses the powder just enough at a time so convenient and prevents wastage. Upon inspection to powder has a very light fluffy feel and a very little sweet scent. the actual powder itself when applied with the nude by nature brush catches to the skin quickly and easily, spreads and blends so nicley. The final coverage produces a very flawless smooth and fresh looking finish. Definatly does not look like powder finish I was so impressed. The colours to choose from are so good also they are so versatile and match really easilly I ordered light medium and it matched my skin tone perfectly. This powder is better than any foundation I have used recently. definatly recommend. xx

Good quality Finishing Powder
Love the packaging which is an elegant rose goldish color theme. The sturdy thickness of the container is great for traveling. Looks great on the vanity. The powder is soooooo airy, silky and fine and so easy to apply. It's a good quality powder. However the opening of the container although smart idea got messy over time. Anyways, the powder is like wearing an invisible veil on your skin; it feels luxurious. So the only problem is that if you have normal or dry skin and you add this finishing powder on top of the mineral powder foundation your skin will end up really dry. You need only the slightest dusting. And if your foundation was too light this finishing powder will make you look pretty pale and I like a healthy glow at all times. I will defs retry in summer when I'm sure my skin will be better suited to the absorbing qualities of the powders.
Better to use in summer.
Those with oilier skins.

Helps control oil and shine
I was fortunate enough to be chosen to trial the Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder. I used this after I have applied my Nude by Nature Mineral foundation, which I have also reviewed. If you go to their website, it states that the velvety Translucent Loose Finishing Powder sets evenly over the skin, naturally extending make-up wear. Its unique feather-light formula helps control oil and shine, while disguising fine lines and wrinkles with its light-reflecting micro particles. The powder is composed of active natural ingredients including the native Australian Kakadu Plum, known for its abundant Vitamin C content; and Kaolin Clay for a radiant flawless complexion. Kakadu plum is antioxidant, anti-aging and is the world’s richest source of vitamin C. Kaolin clay absorbs excess oil, soothing and extends makeup wear.
This powder does not have any fragrance and the main goal is mainly to extend makeup wear, help control oil and shine. Which I can agree it does exactly that. It also claims to have benefits like disguise fine lines, non-drying formula and helps diffuse dark circles. I don’t think it does fully disguise fine lines or diffuse dark circles but it helps a little.
I like the look of the Nude by Nature container. It’s round and has a gold lid which makes it look very classy and luxurious. When you open the lid, there is a plastic seal. Remove plastic before use.
How to use:
Use the Finishing Brush to gently push into the mesh sifter on the Translucent Loose Finishing Powder, tap away the excess and then lightly brush all over the face, focusing on the T-zone and under the eyes to diffuse dark circles and finish your make-up look.
