Easy Application for Longer Lasting Foundation
I was fortunate to get on the trial team for the Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder.
I love all of Nude by Natures products, especially as they are made with 100% natural ingredients and formulated without synthetic ingredients or preservatives, and this product didn't disappoint me.
I used this product in conjunction with the Nude By Nature Mineral Cover Foundation, and I found it made the foundation last longer than it would otherwise. I also found it really easy to apply and easy to get out of the net opening of the container.
The directions I received for using this product included lightly brushing the finishing powder all over the face, focusing on the T-zone and under the eyes to diffuse dark circles. However I found this product was super easy to apply, and impossible to get wrong - so after spending a bit of extra time applying this product the first few days, I started just sweeping it all over my face in under 5 seconds and it still looked great and made my foundation last throughout the day.
I would definitely recommend this product to my friends and family.

Nude by Nature Translucent Finishing Powder applied with the 05 Finishing Brush certainly completes a flawless finish when applied over Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover that’s been applied with the 11 Mineral Brush. It’s easy to apply with matching finishing brush as it coats the tip of the tapered style brush well ensuring that it reaches all angles and contours of my face to provide and even coverage of powder. The texture feels smooth on my skin upon application and once it’s set. The rose gold coloured jar looks lovely on my dressing table, so there’s no need to hide it in a make-up purse. It’s really easy to remove with make-up remover and leaves very little residue on my skin, which is great so it doesn’t clog my pores. I’d definitely recommend this to those who want an easy to apply and well setting finishing powder.
Use less until you see how it's set

Fantastic final touch to any complexion
Having used Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder for a number of years now as a final touch to my usual makeup routine I knew I would be in for a treat with a product I was already familiar with and it certainly didn’t disappoint. It arrived in gorgeous packaging, a circular clear plastic jar with a rose gold lid containing 10g of product. Under the lid is a very cleverly designed mesh sifter. The powder itself has no distinct fragrance, has a lovely velvety feel and is composed of all natural ingredients including the Native Australian Kakadu Plum renowned for its Vitamin C content and Kaolin Clay. With the aid of the gorgeous finishing brush I lightly brushed the product over my complexion evenly after having moisturised, primed and used the Natural Mineral Cover prior, making sure to focus particularly on T-zone and under the eyes to diffuse dark circles. End result I found the finishing powder gave my skin a matte finish with staying power and didn’t settle into my mature age lines or wrinkles. Having said that though, in the past it has been my practice to use this Finishing Powder with a liquid foundation and I probably prefer it as an accompaniment to that as it gives me the fuller coverage I am seeking.
Push brush into mesh and tap away excess to avoid powder settling on clothes. Make sure to concentrate on T-Zone and dark circles under eyes.
Any complexion as a finishing touch to Natural Mineral Cover or equally good after any liquid foundation to produce a nice matte finish.

Great finishing powder
Thank you BH and nude by nature for giving me the opportunity to try this product.
I have used nude by nature products in the past and have loved all of them so I was very excited to try this finishing powder. I love my foundation to be very natural looking and glowy so I tend to avoid using finishing powders. Also a lot of the finishing powders dry my skin out after a couple of hours. However this is one product which doesn't highlight or dry out my skin and doesn't leave a whitecast on my face after application . I have used this product after using the mineral cover and It gives a beautiful finish to the skin. My skin still looks glowy after a light application on my T-zone. I have also used this on a different cream foundation and It worked perfect, making my skin look glowy yet radiant. The finishing brush that comes with it is so soft and perfect to use with the finishing powder.
I would highly recommend it and would be getting more use out of it when the weather gets warmer.
Everyone including dry skin

Excellent Translucent Loose Finishing Powder
This nude by nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder controls oil and shine while disguising fine lines and wrinkles. It has most great ingredients in it including mica, magnesium stearate, kaolin, and terminalia ferdinandiana fruit extract from the native Australian kakadu plum which is very high in vitamin c. It is recommended for applying all over the face and under the eyes to diffuse dark circles. This is a very finely milled powder with a mesh sifter top inside the jar that you dip your brush into. I like using a very large fluffy brush and then I tap off the excess to use the smallest amount possible on my skin just to finish the look with a nice even veil. It does not make my makeup look heavy and it is great for dark circles, wrinkles, lines and pores. Thank you beautyheaven trial team for giving me this amazing opportunity.

The NBN powder containers are so beautiful to display on my counter with their rose-gold lids and transparent glass. They also easily show how much product is remaining.
The standout is the in-built sieve which releases a little powder at a time, and is controlled by a small ‘cap’ from the lid to prevent it spilling everywhere when it is not being used. These features walk all over other products with a secondary lid that you somehow have to open to get to the underlying powder without making ginormous mess and wastage!
I applied this as my final step to my makeup application each morning before heading to work. Before opening the lid I would gently shake the container to make some powder available through the sieve. Application was easy – dip your preferred brush into the powder and gently swirl, tap off excess, and gently sweep across your face (with focus on your t-zone and under your eyes).
Coverage wasn't visible, there was no makeup smear nor greasy feeling, and the powder did not fall.
I was really impressed with my not noticeably oily t-zone even after the day in my tropical climate - that says a lot! I also had a few compliments from colleagues who said I looked well-rested (ha!) – this may have been due to the light-reflecting particles which I credit with hiding my wrinkles!
I recommend this to set and preserve your look through the day. If you need further convincing, the key ingredients - Kakadu Plum, Vitamin C, Kaolin Clay - may even be good for you!
Moisturise well as powder enhances dry skin.
Start with a little powder at a time, as excess will spill off the brush.
Large dome-head brushes work very well with this product (e.g. NBN brush 05).
Anyone wanting to preserve their look during the day or who wants to improve oil control. Great for those conscious about what they put on their skin.

New "Mineral Finishing Veil"
I received the Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder in Light to trial as part of the trial team.
It is a loose finishing/setting powder in a jar packaging with a rose gold twist top lid. Inside the jar, there is a second plastic inverted dome shaped lid with a round centre cut-out that houses a flexible netting to catch the loose powder. I have a mini-sized version of the current finishing powder called "Mineral Finishing Veil" and the packaging differs. The inside was previously a flat hard plastic with square hole cut-outs to dispense the powder. The new packaging is so much better as the powder is much easier to dispense and catches in the net. The old packaging was a bit stubborn and required some vigorous shaking of the jar to release the powder from the container.
I used the loose finishing powder with the provided Nude by Nature Finishing Brush. It is a long elegant brush with a very full dome shaped brush head and densely packed with synthetic bristles. It picked up the powder easily and any excess was easily tapped off back into the jar. The shape of the Finishing Brush also fit very neatly into the curvature of the inverted dome shaped part of the jar for even distribution of the powder onto the bristles. I started in the centre of my face and applied the mineral powder in light sweeping motions focusing on the T-zone and under-eye area to diffuse dark circles. It was a big fluffy brush and easily applied a light layer all-over. I used the finishing powder over both the Mineral Cover foundation powder and with liquid foundation. I did find it a bit odd to 'set' a powder foundation with a loose setting powder however did not end up with an overly powdery look which is positive.
Overall, I found the Translucent Loose Setting powder very lightweight and easy to use. I normally have dry to normal skin and would find this perfect for summer when my skin can get shiny from the heat. It is perfect for a light dusting to set your make up. I think this would be perfect to use in summer time when my face can get a bit oilier compared to winter time especially if using with liquid foundation. After a couple of hours outside, I did find that it needed touch up to control shine (and it wasn't particularly hot). No issues when combined with the Natural Mineral Cover foundation.
Compared to my current mini version and ingredients listed on the Nude by Nature website, the ingredients have not changed only the packaging and name has. It is probably also the reason why the pigment has remained the same unlike the Natural Mineral Cover foundation.
The ingredients of the product are:
MICA, MAGNESIUM STEARATE, KAOLIN, TERMINALIA FERDINANDIANA FRUIT EXTRACT. MAY CONTAIN CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (IRON OXIDES), CI 77007 (ULTRAMARINES).

Beautiful Translucent Powder
Nude By Nature Finishing Powder in Translucent is probably one of the best powders i have used (and i have tried many)! The packaging first off is beautiful, it has a rose gold lid and is super compact and easy to travel with. When you open it the powder is originally sealed which is extremely sanitary and mess free, once you peel off the seal the powder is guarded by 'netting' almost which i think is smart as it helps the application process less messy, less wasteful and easy to control. The powder itself has no scent, i find most have a really funky strong smell so it was nice and satisfying that the scent was non existent. The texture of the powder is really finely milled, its almost perfectly milled, which makes it "creamy" and really satisfying. Because of this texture it is really easy to apply and i find myself looking less cakey even when i do bake the powder creates this flawless, airbrushed look that i cant even describe its phenomenal. It doesn't leave a white cast on me and i don't look dusty or dry. Overall i LOVE this powder and will recommend this to anyone and will most likely purchase this.
If you do find yourself looking dry or cakey i would recommend spraying your face!

Once again let me say thank you to Beautyheaven and Nude by Nature for this opportunity to trial and review Nude by Nature Translucent finishing powder.
Love this finishing powder so light and airy and it takes any shiny areas away whilst also help hide those dreaded dark circles under the eyes.It is so light that I feel my skin is naked with no makeup at all,it also lets my skin breathe without that caked on feeling.
As usual the packaging is the distinctive gold lid of Nude by Nature with a good size jar easy to handle and also to open and reseal.Still have that niggly issue of the internal lid and the contact with the brush just have to put my delicate hands on when using.
I really like this finishing powder and feel certain that once tried so will more customers so I would really recommend to go out and try it

Very Fine Powder
I have the Nude by Nature Translucent Finishing Powder, which is an extremely finely milled powder. The packaging from this powder comes with a netted section inside to separate the powder from flying everywhere when the lid is opened, and it also helps control the amount of powder the brush picks up. I use my Nude by Nature No.05 Finishing brush to apply the powder. I use the Translucent Powder over my BB cream to set the product and to control any shine on my face. I have tried using the finishing powder over my mineral cover, but I find using both products together a bit to dry for my skin in the winter, I will try this combo again in the warmer weather.
I find the finishing powder over my bb cream helps the coverage last throughout the day without fading or transferring and controls the oil on my nose and chin, it also covers my pores very well and has not blocked my pores, it does not settle into my fine lines and it has not given me any allergic reactions

Does Its Job
This is a high quality product from a brand I respect. I have used other Nude by Nature products in the past and have always been very happy with them. The jar is a convenient size and aesthetically pleasing. As far as dispensing the powder, the product spills out too easily and can get a little messy. It's also difficult to contain it on the raised platform in the inner lid. A flat inner lid and perhaps a separate cover for the powder would be good improvements. The powder itself is very effective. It feels very soft and light on the skin. There is no discernible smell and it distributes evenly all over the face. Not much product is needed for an excellent matte effect, so this jar would certainly last quite a while, making it very affordable. This is a powder I would use for both daytime and nigh time use, as I do tend to need a powder to reduce shine.
Be careful when tipping out the product as it tends to spill easily.
All skin types.

Lovely finely milled setting powder
I use a setting powder everyday, over my concealer and sometimes over my mineral foundation.
I love how lightweight and finely milled this product is. Used with the large fluffy setting brush it sets my foundation in place without the appearance of looking cakey. It is also a truly translucent product, it doesn't add any colour or coverage to my base.
The only downside is I found it started to gather slightly on my undereyes over the top of my OG undereyes concealer (Maybelline age rewind). Nothing major and won't deter me from using it in the future but I found other setting powders I've tried do not do this. Maybe it is not compatible with that particular concealer.
Overall I really like this product. Used in conjunction with the mineral foundation it is the perfect base combination for an everyday natural makeup look. Pairs perfectly with the Nude by Nature large fluffy powder brush!
Perfect to use with the mineral foundation

This product came packaged in a cardboard box which is great for recycling. Inside is a lovely circular bronzed metallic lid. Like the mineral foundation, it has a mesh section when you unscrew the lid. There is an indent to stop the finishing veil powder from falling out.
After applying the mineral foundation, it is always best to set it with a setting powder. This Nude by Nature finishing veil is a great product that does just that! I used the matching finishing brush by Nude by Nature and they work superbly well together. The product is light with shiny particles you don't need that much either. It does last the whole day and you feel like you're wearing nothing at all!
Another thing about this setting powder is that it doesn't set into my wrinkle lines as other brands do. This does disguise fine lines and wrinkles as what it's description says on the box. I am quite happy with this product!

A light finish
How good that Nude by Nature mineral makeup gives great coverage and luminosity to the skin, doesn't clog your pores and is free from nasty chemicals or fillers. I had not tried mineral makeup before before, but was very keen to try it and I was not disappointed.
I used the Translucent Loose Finishing Powder to finish off my look. It is meant to be applied after your makeup and its purpose is to lock your foundation in place. I applied a light brush of the Finishing Powder to my cheeks, around my nose, under my eyes and down my t-zone. The Finishing Powder can also be used for any touch ups. However, I found the shade 'natural' that I got is a bit lighter than my usual skin colour. It was still ok unless I used too much, but I would probably have choosen a shade a tiny bit darker.
It is important to have moisturized your skin before applying. And while it is Super easy to apply be warned the powder can get everywhere and things can get a bit messy.

Long Lasting But Not Drying
I actually don't usually powder my face especially in Winter because I find that setting powders just accentuate the dry patches on my skin or make my skin look very matte and flat. This translucent powder is so finely milled and feels weightless on the skin. It works great with the mineral foundation and really locks in the foundation so it lasts all day. However I have also tried it with my usual liquid foundations and was surprised that it worked so well.
Similar to the mineral foundation, the powder comes with a mesh panel that helps dispense the powder. The powder is translucent and feels weightless. Unlike other powders, this one doesn't make my dry patches worse or make my skin look flat. It gives the perfect amount of oil control but at the same time there is a slight sheen to keep the face flawless and healthy looking.
Highly recommend this powder for the mineral foundation or even just by itself on top of liquid foundation. Even on my dry skin, it works like a dream and extends the longevity of my makeup without being drying or cakey.

Nude by Nature Translucent Powder
I received this product as part of the trial team and used it with the Nude by Nature Mineral Foundation and powder brushes. The instructions were to start with a primer, layer the mineral foundation, and then set with the translucent powder.
As with the foundation, this is a beautifully finely milled powder, with no visible granules or glitter. It comes in a plastic pot with a rose gold lid that is indented underneath to hold the loose powder in place. Inside, there is a sponge mesh insert to regulate how much powder is dispensed and stops it going everywhere (unless you drop it!)
By using the supplied Finishing Brush, it leaves a soft veil over the foundation to help set it with a blurred airbrushed effect. It doesn't leave a white mask or change the colour of the foundation underneath, unless you are heavy-handed or maybe use a different brush or sponge.
Overall, I loved these products and the soft natural finish they gave, and would definitely repurchase in the future.
A little goes a long way, no need to overdo it
A soft natural healthy glow

A new discovery.
To be honest, I’ve never used translucent powder. So when I received the Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder I was very keen to give it a try and see how it works, if it does anything and what it can achieve.
Again, I love that Nude by Nature products are made with 100% natural ingredients and formulated without synthetic ingredients or preservatives. I don’t believe I’ve tried their products before but have always heard positive things.
Following the instructions I applied the Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder after applying the Nude by Nature Mineral Cover Foundation. Using the Nude by Nature Finishing brush I was very easily able to lightly apply the powder to my face, focusing on my t-zone and under the eyes as the instructions said.
The powder was very fine. I found with application that my skin looked a little more matte and smooth. It made a difference that i was happy with so i'll continue to use this with the Mineral Cover Foundation.

Protects makeup all day
Nude by Nature Translucent Finishing Powder comes in a round cylindrical jar that is clear so that you can see the product. There is a little plastic piece covering the mesh where the product is located. Peel the plastic off and dab your brush into the mesh, you can then pat the brush on the side of the jar to let any excess fall back into the jar.
I use this product after I have cleansed, toned, used a serum, then moisturised and put on a full face of makeup. I start with my t-zone and work my way outwards, focusing on under the eye area. This really helps to even out the skin tone under the eyes and diminish dark circles. It also leaves and very smooth finish, almost like my face has had a little polish. Using this first thing in the morning, leaves my makeup fresh for the whole day. I have absolutely loved using this product.
Dab the brush into the mesh part of the jar and tap away any excess.
This is fantastic for keeping your makeup in place the whole day.

Great to set your look
I was a little hesitant to use any kind of powder on my 40+ year old skin as I usually use a liquid foundation and only on a rare occasion do I set it with a powder. I have to say I was very happy using this translucent powder to set the powder foundation. I used the Nude By Nature number five brush to gently and lightly apply a layer of the powder over my skin to set the foundation powder I'd just used. The product doesn't smell and I found it set my makeup all day, so that I never had to touch-up. My skin still felt light after using this and it did not show up my fine lines as I thought it might have. What I ended up with was a lovely, smooth, even look to my skin, with the 'natural' look I was after and it stayed put all day long.

Quite a nice finishing powder
This was a nice finishing powder, the powder is translucent and a really fine and lovely consistency. It spreads very nicely over your face and seems to lock in your foundation and also provides a very matte finish. For someone like myself with quite oily skin I am always looking for something that will keep the shine away! This product had very pleasing results even later in the day. I also found it didn’t sink into your wrinkles or fine lines so gave quite a nice overall finish.
I like that the ingredients are natural and also beneficial and moisturising for my skin, always feels good when makeup is beneficial for your skin health! This isn’t a product I would use everyday normally but I did find myself using most days just to lock in my makeup and give me that nice airbrushed finished.
Overall, I would reccomend when using in conjunction wirh the nude by nature mineral make up as the two products paired gave a lovely and light finish!
