A versatile powder with a beautiful finish
The Nude by Nature Translucent Powder is white in appearance, and has no scent to it. I have dry, sensitive skin that is light-medium in tone, and generally only use a little setting powder over liquid foundations as it can make my skin look dry. I did not have that issue with this product at all! It’s very finely milled and does not leave a white cast, and it photographed well with flash on.
It sat really well over powder foundation and did not accentuate dry patches. I found that it’s best use was to set liquid products. A very thin layer set my liquid foundation and concealer perfectly, and left a beautiful finish that wasn’t too matte. It did not make any patches of skin too dry, and did not cause any flaking. It helped the liquid products to last better and minimised the creasing I would usually get with other powders I regularly use. Powder products applied seamlessly over the top, and I found that I had an extra 3-4 hours of wear before noticing any areas that needed touching up, compared with my usual routine.
The powder also applied nicely over bare, moisturised skin to take down the shine a bit. It did not grab or leave a cast, and made any texture look less noticeable. I really like this powder, the finish it gives, and the longevity it adds to other products.
Use a thin layer with a big fluffy brush to extend wear of powder and liquid products, and a small fluffy brush in specific areas for touch ups.
Can be used on bare skin.
All skin types, as it isn’t drying.

I was hesitant to rate this product as there are a couple of translucent powders on the market that I absolutely adore. However, the Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder is an affordable option that is the perfect finishing product over the Mineral Foundation as well as a setting powder for concealer under the eyes, around the nose and the folds of the smile area. I feel that this smooths out the skin, minimising pores and makes your make up last that little bit longer. I love that there is a natural more affordable option that goes brilliantly with the other Nude by Nature products. While on its own it doesn’t do much, when used in conjunction with other products it smooths out the skin, reduces oils and shine and is the perfect finishing product to any makeup look. Whether it is going to a yoga class, walking or heavier for work or out on a date.
Like the mineral foundation, two the brush to ensure an even consistency. A little bit goes a long way to create the perfect look. Too much of the product will make you look cakey and ghost like.
I used the Nude By Nature Mineral Cover foundation as my base (some days with both a primer & sunscreen, other days just directly applied) in conjunction with the Nude By Nature Translucent finishing powder - both applied with the Nude By Nature makeup brushes (mineral brush & finishing brush).
I found it to be very effective at keeping the foundation in place throughout the day with only one day requiring additional setting powder to remove the sheen from my face after being very active and sweating. It's a product where less is more should be observed to avoid any product build up in fine lines & an over "whitening". It leaves the skin with a slight powder feeling to the touch, but that it to be expected. No overwhelming scents or irritations from either the foundation or the setting spray where observed, as someone with sensitive skin this was quite refreshing.
Start with a minimal amount of product and build from there - needing to touch up once in the day is better than overdoing it at the start.
Those who like a matt finish to their makeup & require something light in coverage to set their look

Trial Team Review
I have never used this product from Nude by Nature before so it was awesome to be a part of this trial team.
Before this trial I never thought about using a finishing powder over a mineral powder foundation as it seemed that it would be too drying for my skin. I have an oily t-zone so I concentrated my application of this finishing powder there.
The powder has a slight tint to it so it doesn't change the colour of the foundation after application at all. It will be invaluable with the Luminous Sheer Liquid foundation that I trialled last year for Nude by Nature, especially in summer. It has a nice 'barely there' feel that I like and gives a nice matte finish to the foundation. I can't wait to try it out in summer as my skin becomes quite oily in summer.
I also found that this powder doesn't transfer onto other things like face masks. Being immune compromised I need to use a face mask when I go to shopping centres and I was very impressed when taking the mask off to find that there was no transfer whatsoever.
Overall, this is a very nice finishing powder and I enjoyed using it
Great for giving a nice matte finish to your foundation.

The dreamiest translucent powder
Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder is revolutionary - it is definitely the best translucent powder I’ve ever used and I cannot rave about it enough! This translucent powder comes in a clear jar with a brown lid. The jar has a mesh where you dab the brush to access the powder and tap off the excess, while the lid has a “stopper” part that goes into the mesh when the lid is screwed on - making it an incredibly travel friendly jar, as the powder has no chance of escaping and creating a huge cloud of mess upon opening!
The powder itself is dreamy - it almost feels as if it melts into the skin creating this youthful beautiful young looking layer of skin. I apply the translucent powder with the finishing brush right after applying the mineral powder. I start from my T-zone and then work outwards.
Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder sets in such way that the skin looks dewy and fresh, with no dark circle or imperfection in sight. The pores look perfect, the tiredness doesn’t exists and it’s just great looking complexion all day, every day.
Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder is incredibly lightweight and comfortable on the skin and it didn’t cause any breakouts on my skin, even when I did a fuller coverage. What I love about it is that the whole process is super quick and easy while lasting all day - a definite winner in my eyes!
I’ll definitely recommend the Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder to my friends and family, as I’ve found it just so great - affordable, quick to apply and looking so well rested has never been so easy to achieve. Thank you, Nude by Nature and BH for inviting me to this winning trial!

great translusent setting powder
Just like the mineral cover, this translucent power was beautifully soft, light and spreadable. The coverage was light and fluffy. The smell was natural, not overpowering. The texture was fine and creamy. The colour was translucent, meaning that it could work on any complexion.
My mineral cover looked very much set after I had applied the translucent powder. The powder did not sink into fine lines or anything. The buildability of the powder also meant I could apply more in the t-zone and around my pores to reduce oiliness throughout the day.
I am usually not a person who is fond of setting powders. The powder did come out a lot with a little shake of the bottle. Perhaps the bottle design can be improved with smaller holes so small amount of powder can come out each time.
Overall, the translucent powder is fantastic for someone who wants to try an alternative to setting sprays. For someone like me who needs more help with controlling oiliness in the t-zone and cheeks, this translucent powder is great to use all seasons.

I'm really loving the Nude By Nature products and he translucent powder product did not disappoint. I also love how easy it is to apply, using the brush it came with in this trial. It absorbs oils in my T zone without being flaky or caky. Really good for my combination skin! Unlike the mineral powder in the same brand, the translucent powder can get a bit messy but that is just the nature of translucent powder vs any type of press powder. My other brand translucent powders I find are all the same when applying. The brush that it came with in this trial really helps though, so highly recommend purchasing the brush with the powder.
I love how lightweight this powder is, I never feel caky but it also doesn't change my skin tone. It almost just blends in and covers the oily T zone. It sits very nicely over my concealer and foundation. I'm also a fan of the packaging, it is so beautiful, sturdy and perfect fitting for the brush!

Great finishing powder
This is a really nice finishing powder that completed my make-up look. I like how lightweight it feels on my skin, and yet, a little bit goes a long way.
The first time I used this product, I accidentally picked up a bit too much on my brush. When I applied it on my face, my skin ended up looking white! However, knowing this for next time, I was able to pick up just the right amount of product, and the application gave my face a nice, matt finish. I applied it under my eyes and on my t-zone and it gave a really nice translucent coverage that lasted all day.
Like the mineral powder, this translucent product also came in a nice, low, round container that's really easy to hold. The holes in the middle makes it easy for the powder to come out, and yet, once the top has ben screwed on, is all securely contained, making it mess free. Because it looks identical to the other product, however, you have to be really careful and look carefully to make sure you're not using the wrong one.
The best bit about this product? It washes off like a breeze. I simply used a facial cleanser. I like this product. It gives a nice coverage that is easy to apply and take off.

Great finishing touch to my mineral makeup look!
This translucent finishing powder comes housed in a round jar with a luxurious rose gold mirrored lid. There is 10g of product in each jar and that’s quite a generous size that will last a very long time! The rose gold packaging looks gorgeous and the product itself looks quite nice sitting amongst my other beauty products.
Using the Nude by Nature Finishing Brush (brush number 05), I was able to lightly and evenly sweep the translucent powder over my full face after using mineral makeup foundation. The translucent finishing powder is incredibly finely milled and only a small amount of powder is required to give my skin a nice silky-smooth finish.
When applying this translucent finishing powder, it can sometimes leave my skin looking cakey, so it’s really important to apply only a small amount of this powder. Throughout the day, my mineral foundation lasts longer, and my skin is less shiny. So, this translucent finishing powder worked well to leave my complexion looking great!

High quality natural finishing powder
This Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder is a lightweight loose mineral finishing powder that comes in the shade Natural.
I found this finishing powder quick and easy to apply using the No. 05 Nude by Nature Finishing Brush. I lightly brush the finishing powder all over my face focusing on any oil prone areas like my T-zone. The powder sets evenly over my skin, not only helping my makeup last longer but also helping to control my often oily and shiny skin. The shade adapts nicely to my natural skin tone. It works well after applying the Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover to further soften the look of any redness and imperfections. This finishing powder gives my skin a flawless airbrushed finish, leaving it looking brighter and healthier.
I would happily recommend this finishing powder to anyone looking for a high quality natural finishing powder to help their makeup stay put throughout the day.

The finishing powder is one of my most favourite nude by nature products. I love how versatile it is and how it can transform your make up, not only extending the length of it’s wear but it also gives my skin a nice youthful glow. It also helps minimise the appearance of dark circles around my eyes and helps to deflect fine lines.
I was lucky enough to be trialling the matching finishing brush with the finishing powder and I absolutely love this brush. It makes applying the finishing powder so very easy. I use large sweeping circular motions to lightly brush over my face, over the top of the mineral foundation. I like adding a little more on my t-zone and under the eyes. I like to also use this on my décolletage for a nice glow.
This product contains natural and native ingredients, all good for promoting a healthier complexion.
Apply this finishing powder over your foundation to help extend the wear and to freshen your look. You may need to reapply during the day if you live in a hot climate.
This product is ideal for ladies wanting natural makeup that lasts a little longer. This product will really liven up your foundation and add a subtle glow to the skin.

Not A Fan.
I was delighted to be selected for this trial and absolutely LOVE the Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover so felt this would be as good. For me though it wasn't. I applied it as directed with the brush provided, shaking the excess off before applying over my face. I have no idea why but it immediately looked too powdery and very much like an "old lady's makeup." I am a much older lady but I like to look as good as possible and with skin in good condition this is usually possible. I tried this alone as well but without any better result.
The packaging is good with the sifter making it simple to get the powder out without having an excess and the container is easy to hold. It is designed to extend the makeup wear but I found the beautiful Natural Mineral Cover Foundation wore beautifully without any assistance. It just didn't do anything to enhance the look of my makeup.
Apply as directed and then experiment.
Not sure - I just know it did nothing to help me.

I cannot get over how much I love this product!
It is extremely lightweight and feels like you're wearing nothing on your skin when applied. The translucent powder is not fragranced and has no glitter which I like.
The biggest win for me about this product is the finish. It provides a beautiful satin like finish and does not accentuate imperfections unlike some other translucent powders I have tried in the past. It goes as far as to somehow BLUR my imperfections and gives me an airbrush finish. I apply this on bare skin or over the top of a foundation and both look great and feel comfortable throughout the day. The powder does not catch on any dry skin and it also provides a satin finish throughout the day - it has staying power!
I was also surprised at the powders ability to help other powder products blend easier on the skin. My blush looked better when applied over the top of this translucent powder.
It is now in my everyday makeup bag and I won't be going anywhere else for my setting powders from now on.
Don't remove the plastic seal all the way, remove only half and cut away the other side. I found removing the whole seal created too large of a whole for product to be released. This made it a little difficult to get the appropriate amount of powder on the brush and found I was wasting an unnecessary amount and making a mess at the same time.
Those who like Australian made products and a stunning airbrushed finish.

Nude by Nature Translucent Powder | Sets liquid makeup and gives some shine control
Thank you beautyheaven for letting me trial the Nude by Nature Transluscent Powder while the product is under "Embargo".
We have been asked to use the Nude by Nature Translucent Powder in conjunction with a powder foundation - the Nude by Nature Mineral Cover; and use it on top of the powder foundation to "set" the foundation.
However, while I like the translucent powder as a stand alone product, I found it unnecessary and redundant to set the powder foundation.
The Nude by Nature Mineral Powder can set itself very well as it is. The addition of translucent powder does not seem to add anything extra - if anything, maybe a marginal difference in shine control.
However, by using the Nude by Nature Translucent Powder on liquid foundation, the difference is more significant and it does give a more refined, satin finish to just liquid foundation alone.
The powder is quite finely milled. A little goes a long way.

Airbrushing powder magic!
I really liked this translucent setting powder. Not only does it help your foundation underneath to last much longer and perform better, it also has a soft-blurring and somewhat illuminating effect on the skin (without any/obvious shimmer) but it still looks like your skin - only better - because it's super finely milled and doesn't cake on at all. I much prefer the skin to be able to breath and look evened-out, but still natural rather than a 'mask'. So this is perfect for achieving that result.
It's cold and wintery where I am at the moment, but I can tell that this will also perform really well in heat and humidity to help your 'face' stay put and absorb any excess oils through the T-zone area.
The powder is very easy to use and the packaging is well-thought out to make it much more user friendly than the canisters with just the plastic tops covers with fine holes all across that mean you have to tap out and often waste a fair bit of product.
The tub that this comes in is very elegant-looking, with the ubiquitous and very trendy rose-gold coloured lid. But this lid is hiding a bit of ingenious design work because it has an extra protrusion that seals over the top of the opening when the lid is on specifically so that when you open it up after travel or knocking about of the package - it's not going to be a messy powder bomb just waiting to happen!
Also the top of the powder is shaped like an inverse dome and there is only a small mesh-covered opening that the powder can come up through as you swirl the brush over the top. The curves around the edges are also really helpful to rotate the brush over so that you can achieve an even powder distribution over the brush fibers before you apply it to your face. Overall, this is the best designed powder canister I've ever used.
The powder doesn't have any strong smell, but I still always hold my breath when I use any dry powder products as I don't want to have any irritating particles inhaled into my lungs - why take any chances?
A little of this goes a long way, so make sure you swirl your brush around well in the top of the tub for a nice light and even product coverage before you put it to your face. I really recommend using a synthetic, full and fluffy contoured brush with a long handle to really sweep this product over your skin evenly. The one the brand recommends (#5) is ideal and vegan-friendly.
This is fabulous for anyone who needs to get more mileage out of their base coverage. It definitely helps your foundation stay put better - whether it is a liquid style or mineral powder also. It's also ideal for anyone who wants a more elevated finish to their makeup look than just base alone because this really does blur out any imperfections more so than just a foundation alone can do.
If natural ingredients, value for money, supporting Australian made and owned and performance is important to you, this product is an absolute winner in the category! It would make a great gift as the shade is pretty universal on those with lighter skin tones - I am not sure how this would go on deeper complexions.

Light and silky.
NUDE BY NATURE TRANSLUCENT LOOSE FINISHING POWDER.
This product is applied with the No: 11 Finishing Brush. It is a beautiful, velvety translucent powder, applied as a finishing vale over the Nude By Nature, Natural Mineral Foundation Cover-medium. It is very light on the skin and sets evenly for smooth and even coverage. The formular is a non-shiny matt finish, discuises fine lines and brightens the complexion for a more youthful look. Lovely on my mature skin. The lasting power of this powder is amazing. For the trial period, I needed to wear it each day and I did this for a minimum of 8 hours with the ocassional 12 hour day and it lasted until removal at bedtime. I wore this when I was gardening and it didn't run or brush off. The skin was able to breathe, didn't perspire and was only touched up once during one of those days.
Apply with the Finishing Brush in a circular motion to show even coverage. Brush up into the hairline and under the chin to neck area.
Suitable to all or most skin types both mature and youthful.

I received this Translucent Loose Finishing Powder as part of a Nude by Nature trial package.
As with the Mineral Powder this powder comes in the usual Nude by Nature packaging of clear plastic jar with a rose old screw on lid. The powder size is 10g. Once opened there is a shallow inner lining with a sieve-like inner base to allow the powder to flow through (this prevents excess powder from escaping).
I used the (supplied) 05 Finishing brush to apply the product (loose powder). With a swirl in the tub and a slight tap (of the brush to remove excess powder) the application of the powder was easy. I found it glided onto the skin evenly and the coverage was excellent.
This finishing powder definitely has a velvety feel to it. It applied in an even manner and looks totally natural. I have very oily skin and definitely found this powder controlled the oil and shine on my face.
I was very impressed and will definitely be using this every day
less is more!
anyone who wants a natural look while controlling oil and shine
Also great for hiding those fine lines and wrinkles.

I was really excited to trial this product that i straight away opened it and used it the next day, applying it with the Finishing Brush. The the packaging is quite light but luxurious with a monochrome lid and sheer base to see the product. This is great to know when you are getting low and need more. I like to 'bake' my face with translucent powder but the box recommends to lightly brush over your face so i tried using it this way. The powder has no scent, which isn't a bad thing as the product only uses natural ingredients, it also has a creamy feel and turns dry when applied. It did not leave a white cast on my face and melted in well to the product. It was light enough to put in my bag and lightly apply throughout the day when i got a bit shiny. Overall not a bad product

Super finely milled texture and luminous finish
The two powder products surprised me in a nice way. They are really finely milled and have some slight sheen, so they go on your face matte but not flat. Using the translucent powder with foundation did not give me a cake face. The mineral powder foundation has slightly more coverage than the setting powder, however I would say the coverage is on the light side which is reasonable and expected give that it is in loose powder format. I am still happy with it as I typically only use tinted SPF in the summer and layering this on top would add more coverage but still provides a natural look. Neither of them has any scent added which is a bonus. On top of that, the packaging is really nice too, as the stopper on the lids prevent the powder from coming out once screwed on. Two brushes came with them are not bad either, they are soft and well made. Overall, I would recommend these products and re-purchase after using them up.
only pour a little out each time and add more if needed

Translucent Loose Finishing Powder is now on my Radar
Translucent Loose Finishing Powder which has never been on my radar until I have been a part of this beauty trial team.
The powder is very fine and light, and it soon get messy when I spill some of it out of the lid – Oopps (pay attention here or you will be cleaning it up like me!).
I follow similar steps as I do with mineral foundation powder, but I apply it more gently to my skin and focus on my T-zone (sweaty area here in Darwin) and add some to under my eyes. You do not need a lot, just a little bit of powder does your whole face. It leaves my skin feeling silky and smooth giving it an airbrush look to some degree. I really begin to like the Translucent Loose Finishing Powder after the third day of using it as my skin stays oil free for hours and your pores seem to disappear to get a shine free face.
