Excellent translucent loose powder
Nude By Nature Loose translucent Powder is a loose powder that is light on the skin an sets your foundations, no matter the consistency, perfectly. It is formulated without talc, parabens, Silicones or synthetics.
I used the Nude by Nature setting brush that looks like a tear drop to set my foundations. I used it both on my loose foundations as well as my liquid foundations. it set all of them beautifully without making my skin look caked on or overdone. The powder is amazing for the under the eyes, and also for baking and the t-zone. The brush picks up the powder really well and deposits just enough product for a soft coverage. If you want more powder, pack the brush with more product, from the sifter within the tub, by tapping down on the sifter, to pick up more product and then apply again.
The tub which comes with a sifter is amazing, because it allows for control of how much product you can pick up as well as not spilling the product everywhere. Although, do remember it is still a loose powder, so there will be some spillage on your self and your carpet, its just the way it is. Otherwise amazing product and lasted on my skin all day.
excellent powder for setting any foundation or under eye
ideal for anyone that would like that ethereal finish to their foundation

Luxurious Last Step
This translucent powder is of extremely high quality - being very finely milled and the way it finishes off the make-up in such a soft and pretty way. It also seems to lock the make-up mineral foundation into place. This can also be used on the skin without any foundation underneath to just give a softer appearance to the skin. The quality of the ingredients are second to none especially if you love natural based products for your skin. The effect is totally sheer and yet enhances to skin in a fairy-like manner.
I'm not one to use a translucent powder everyday but boy this really does make it tempting to do so! It sort of makes the Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover Foundation have an even more natural appearance than on it's own - which is quite surprising that it can make it look even more natural but it actually does.
It's a dream to apply with the Nude by Nature Finishing Brush - it makes for such a lovely ritual that it's easy to want to fit this extra finalizing step into my make-up routine. I can highly recommend using this translucent powder with the Nude by Nature Finishing Brush - with it's soft and pouffy head of soft and dense bristles it makes it well worth it. I love how easy it is to use too. This step is not hard - it adds a luxurious final step into my make-up routine.
Use the Nude by Nature Finishing Brush to apply this powder with and you won't ever want to forego this final step!
Ideal for those in the market for a translucent powder - this is an excellent one!

Fine, translucent powder
I don't always use a finishing or face powder and was therefore excited to try the Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder. The powder comes in a large jar (10g) that I think will last me ages, as you don't need to use a lot each time. I find the packaging really handy and mess-free, unlike many other loose powders. The mesh sifter enclosed in the lid helps dispense the right amount of powder and any excess can easily be tapped away into the inner plastic cap. This powder has a very fine, delicate texture that blends really well. It looks and feels invisible on the skin, but provides some oil and shine control as it contains kaolin. It's definitely non-drying and provide a matte, silky finish without looking or feeling cakey. I do really like that this powder is fragrance-free so my skin doesn't get irritated or itchy! It contains Kakadu Plum extract which adds some antioxidant benefits. I find this powder provided good shine control for a few hours, but I did need to reapply it to my T-zone as I did still get some visible shine. Overall I think this is a great setting powder for anyone with sensitive skin and it doesn't settle into lines or pores.

stays all day
I’ve never tried Nude by Nature before this trial but I’ve heard good things so I was eager to try it. I feel positively about the brand due to the 100% naturally derived and cruelty free products and I love that mineral makeup is a better alternative for your skin.
The first thing I noted about the product was the packaging. The box was simple but what I love is the container inside with a mirrored rose gold lid. The packaging is strong and sturdy, and the screw top lid allows the product to be done up securely. The lid is well designed to stop excess product falling into the top compartment of the container when it is not in use, which I’ve found to be an issue with mineral foundations in the past.
There is a small mesh net in the centre of the container which allows a small amount of product to be dispersed as needed. I found it easy to tap the brush in this section to get the product rather than to tap the product out into the lid because the lid has a bit that sticks out in the centre.
Using the brush, I found it easy to apply this product in a large sweeping motion across my face, using circular motion when needed. I did find that it made my skin appear paler immediately after the application but this seemed to not last too long. I did find it was a little drying around my eyes though and it caused some irritation to flare up here which I am prone to but had no flare ups for six months prior to using this.
This product removed the last hints of shine from my face and kept any shine away all day even after having done some light exercise. It kept the mineral foundation underneath looking great all day.
A couple of times I did transfer too much product to the brush which resulted in me applying to much to my skin and looking very powdery and pale. This is easily overcome by ensuring you tap any excess off the brush before applying, and to apply small amounts at a time - I quickly learnt this.
I did find that it can be a little messy to apply, particularly if you are wearing dark clothing. I found a light dusting of the powder fell onto me when I was applying and I often ended up with a dark top covered in small speckles of foundation.
Overall this product makes a good match for the mineral foundation and I will continue using it. The weather has been cool given it is winter so I am keen to try this product during the warmer months to see if the results are as positive.

Did the job
First of all a big thanks to Beauty Heaven for allowing me to trial this product always love trying something new! I was really excited to try this brand as i have seen advertised so often but just never purchased myself.
Firstly the packaging is great, very sleek and well made. The powder is white which might alarm some people but once on the brush just tap the excess off onto the sides on the container and let the brush do the work.
I focused on the t zone as reccomended and felt that it definately did set the foundation in place but again i found it just too powdery for me. It just looked a bit too dry on my skin, though this may not be the case with others! I would use for every day as i wouldn't waste it but would probably stick to my normal products for a night out.

I was looking for a translucent finishing powder for a while to replace my old one that was running out so this was a great opportunity to sample a new brand. This powder is so light and subtle and didn’t leave my skin feeling heavy or cakey. After applying the Nude By Nature Mineral Cover I dabbed a small amount on my brush from the pot the tapped the end of the brush on the side to remove any excess powder. I dusted lightly over my entire face and décolletage finishing and string my makeup for the day. I found the powder not to sit in my fine lines or wrinkles and I was still left with the dewy fresh look I love. I found my makeup to last all day and if I get a little sweaty or shiny I just apply a little more during the day.
This could be used over your liquid foundation to set your makeup
Anyone looking for a finishing powder with no nasties that leaves skin looking great all day

Lightweight Translucent Powder
This review is part of the Nude by Nature trial team.
The Nude by Nature Translucent Powder has similar texture and consistency of their mineral foundation. The translucent powder applies to skin well, as it helps to absorb any excess oils in the skin. This leaves my face a comfortable matte finish. It is non-drying, doesn't cake up and doesn't hug my flakey skin.
I prefer to apply this when I don't want to wear foundation, so I will sweep some over my skin after finishing my morning skincare routine. It leaves my skin feel soft, smooth and breathable. It doesn't leave white cast/ghostly look that I have experienced with some other brands.
I use it with a mineral brush or a finishing brush as they can help to evenly apply the powder on the face. Another thing is that I can reapply through out the day, to help absorb excess oils and not find it feeling heavy on my skin.
Use the translucent powder after foundation to help set it or after finishing off skincare routine.
Anyone who uses setting powders or love Nude by Nature products.

The Perfect Finish for your foundation.
I am very grateful to Beautyheaven for giving me the opportunity to trial the Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder.Similar to the Mineral Cover Foundation it also came in a clear plastic container with an elegant metallic rose gold plastic lid.Using the brand's own Finishing Brush you can apply a light dusting over the Mineral Cover Foundation or just your t-zone to set your make-up so that it lasts all day.This worked very well for me and I am very pleased with the light natural look.The domed finishing brush was perfect when applying the finishing powder into the hollows under the eyes and on the sides of the nose.
A superfine Finishing Powder that is quick and easy to apply made from only natural ingredients ,lets your skin breathe and does not contain any harmful toxic chemicals.
A big plus for me is that Nude By Nature is made in Australia.
Apply a light dusting over Nude By Nature Mineral Cover Foundation to set your foundation so that it lasts all day.
Giving your make-up a professional longer lasting look.

Light cover, blended well with the mineral foundation
I was very fortunate to trial this product as a member of the Trial Team. I also trialled the mineral foundation.
I loved the packaging of the powder, it was glamorous and very luxe. The powder itself was a natural cream colour and very fine. I thought that it was finer than other products I have previously used. The coverage is very sheer and because I have quite an oily T-zone, it was not sufficient in itself to resist shine developing later in the day. I do not wear foundation usually so I was quite happy with the airbrushed glow I got from it. I would have preferred it to have lasted longer though.
Where this product really shone was when it was used over the mineral foundation. The two products used together helped each product last longer throughout the day and helped keep my complexion fresh and dewy. I loved the light feel. I would whole heartedly recommend this product used together with the mineral foundation. On its own though, it is perhaps too sheer.
Great for a fresh, airbrushed glow. Using it with the mineral foundation helped both products last longer and gave a wonderful result.
Ideal if you prefer a barely there, very sheer texture. The powder was so fine and so light that I couldn't feel it at all.

The Nude by Nature mineral finishing veil is somewhat similar to the mineral foundation except this one has no colour and is generally used to set your makeup with. I normally use a mineral foundation but I have never tried one that doesn't have any pigment. My biggest worry was that it would make my face appear lighter than it actually is - but it doesn't because it's not noticeable when you put it on so no need to worry! The packaging is similar as it comes I a twist lid jar with powder on top and the rest stored at the bottom. It's a fine powder that doesn't leave any white residue behind when you put it on. It feels quite soft and it does not dry out my skin. I used this on top of my liquid foundation to help keep it in place and it kept my foundation looking great. My face wasn't look oily, my foundation did not really fade and because it was lightweight it did not make my makeup look cakey. It gave it more of an airbrushed look. Side note - I would recommend going light with the powder, less is more. Also too much and it can sink into lines and wrinkles and accentuate your pores. Just a light dusting of the powder and makeup stays fresh and on your face much longer than without it. Especially if you have oily skin this will most definitely help.

Great with foundation
This is the first time i use nude by nature Translucent loose finishing powder for my makeup routine.It easily covers up shine and sets my foundation to a lovely soft finish.The powder is so soft and velvety.It is very light on my skin, didn't require much at all, a little goes a long way.
The powder minimises the appearance of lines and pores.It makes my face look nice and smooth.I can use powder for touch ups during the day.It is feels like heaven on the skin.
The powder package is very similar to Nude By Nature Mineral Cover Foundation. It has a mesh inside that can easily take the powder out by using the finishing brush.It is a decent size to fit with my makeup bag and convenient for on the go.
This gives a lovely glow to the face, I absolutely adore.This powder is a wonderful addition to any makeup bag!
Be sure to tap as much as you can off your brush before putting it near your face.

AMAZED BY HOW IT LOCKED ALL THE MAKEUP IN
First of all you will fall in love with the packaging, it looks so luxurious and reminds you that you are using high end makeup, the gold makes it look so classy. the powder extractor is so perfect as it lets you dispense only what you need unlike other products where it keeps coming of the lid even when its closed and when you open it everything spills off "the horror"!
This finishing powder is ideal for all skin tones as it is translucent, i share it with my mother always, the fine powder makes your overall makeup look so flawless and doesn't give you a cakey effect.
I am amazed by how it locked all he makeup in and it lasted the whole day without having to touch up and it even looked fresh all day.
It has a subtle scent which is so good while applying, its ideal to be applied with a finishing brush to spread the product evenly.
I used the nude by nature finishing brush to even out the application.
ideal for long sunny days, to lock up the makeup in.

Professional finishing powder for great expectations
Most thankful to BH for giving me this ideal chance to try the Nude By Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder. This sort of product is one that I've been wanting to try for a long time. I'm so happy to try this brand I love heaps as I had high expectations that have been met. I found it really enhanced and extended my makeup and gave it a brightened look. It's easy to evenly apply since it's so lightweight and goes on smoothly. I greatly appreciate it provides a flawless airbrushed finish. It's impressive that it hides imperfections like redness. Even though it controls shine it's non drying which it what I always admire in a product. It's a nice small size with an appealing gold lid that suits this amazing brand. It's most important it's cruelty free, natural and dermatologist tested. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to try a high quality finishing powder.
Take time to apply the translucent loose finishing powder evenly over the face and neckline to achieve the full effect of a superb finish.
This product is ideal for everyday as well as special events when you want a great finish and would give a flawless look in photos.

Setting powder sent from god
Wow ok so I’m not one to usually use setting powder as I find most of the products on the market leave me with a white shade under my eyes when taking photos but I can confirm I have done the photo test and can happily say this product passes the test!!
I did a full makeup look and added the setting powder to my look I left it on all night taking pictures throughout the night to really test this product and every time I had a flawless finish! From the start of the night to the end of the night my makeup stayed on throughout the long night and did not separate at all.
I was really surprised by this because most other setting powders usually don’t work well on my skin but wow this definitely did!
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good finishing powder that doesn’t require much effort at all!
This product does not need tips! It’s so simple to use!
Any type of skin. I have oily skin around my noes and can confirm it did not budge!

Set and forget!
Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder is the perfect way to set your foundation of choice (my choice is the Nude by Nature Mineral Cover Foundation in medium). All it takes is a tiny bit of powder dusted lightly over your foundation, and it lasts all day - my foundation didn't even rub off after my hairdresser visit!
I am a convert. I have never used a setting powder before, and I love it. It makes my face look blemish free and there is no shine all day. The powder reduces the size of my pores which helps to create that lovely even skin tone I like.
Dispensing the product from its container is super easy, just a little tap on the side of the jar and you have enough to cover your face. As with the mineral foundation, the packaging lid has a cleverly built in centre part that fits over the holes the product is dispensed from, so it doesn't go everywhere upon opening, even after rattling around in my handbag.
This is a ripper product!
Apply with a light hand, as it really is a miracle powder, and less is best for a perfect face!
Everyone that wears foundation and wants to extend the longevity and even out their skin tone.

finely milled setting powder
The Translucent Loose Finishing Powder is a finely milled loose powder. I find that loose powder is good for setting your base and for touch ups. However, as this is a loose powder, it isn’t great on-the-go – could get very messy!
You get 10 grams of product. As this is a loose powder, it looks like a decent amount of product. Like the mineral foundation, I like how it is packaged. It comes in a plastic container with a sifter to prevent too much powder coming out. The lid of the container has a stopper that prevents the powder coming out onto the lid.
I use a fluffy, not dense brush (Nude by Nature Finishing Brush) to lightly apply the powder. I use this powder to set my base. It mattifies shine and doesn’t crease underneath my eyes. Currently it is winter - so my skin is relatively dry. I can get away with ~6 hours before feeling the need to touch-up.
Tap the brush after getting powder on the brush to get rid of excess product

All natural mineral powder
Thank you to BeautyHeaven and Nude by Nature for allowing me to be a part of this amazing trial! I received the mineral finishing veil as part of the trial which is a finishing powder. The finishing powder helps to increase the longevity of your makeup by setting your makeup, helping it look flawless for longer!
The powder contains kaolin clay which helps to control oil and shine. Now if you have normal to oily skin you can understand how this can be a problem when after a couple of hours your face can start to look shiny and oily, making your makeup look uneven. The finishing powder helps to control shine without making your face look dry or patchy.
The powder does not contain any pigment so it can be used for all skin tones. On days when I just put on a bit of concealer to cover up any blemishes or pigmentation I put this on top to keep my face oil and shine free. I used the Nude by Nature finishing brush to apply the powder and used it all over my face while concentrating on my t zone. It's lightweight, doesn't settle into any lines or wrinkles and keeps your skin looking great for several hours.

An excellent translucent powder for all skin types
I was very excited to try this product as part of the trial team. When it arrived, I observed that this product had very similar packaging to the NBN mineral foundation powder; both have the easily identifiable rose gold lid and I really liked that it had sleek quality packaging.
I observed that on the inside, was a soft netting, which allowed for easy access and application of the powder. I have previously used translucent powders with a plastic centre and which require shaking of the powder to get it out. When using this powder, a gentle swipe over the netting with the NBN finishing brush picked up just the right amount of powder for application.
The look after using the powder was matte and the perfect finishing product to use over my liquid foundation. It wasn't drying and I actually prefer it to the finishing powder that I've purchased from a much more expensive brand. It sets evenly and looks really great on my skin; I couldn't recommend it more strongly.
Apply with the Nude By Nature Finishing brush

Loose powder topcoat
I was not sure about this translucent finishing powder as it is not something I have thought to use before. I used this over the mineral powder foundation with just a light dusting and it felt fine. To be honest though I don’t know if I really needed it.
I did find the texture was very light. I couldn’t feel any difference after applying it over the powder which was a nice surprise as I was expecting it to feel thicker or heavier, but it didn’t.
As a comparison, I tried wearing the mineral powder both with and without the translucent finishing powder and I didn’t notice any difference with the wear of it or the shine.
I like only a light coverage so perhaps if you like your powder coverage a bit thicker then the finishing powder would have a more noticeable affect.
It was easy to dispense from the pot and the pot size does seem generous.
Be careful not to shake too much out of the pot.

Solid translucent with natural airbrushed look.
Similar situation to the Mineral Powder I reviewed as part of a Trial Team (thanks, bH!): Firstly, the packaging for this product is gorgeous - the rose gold lid acts as a bit of a mirror in and of itself. You *can* tip this out into the lid but I found the inside of the lid shape a little strange and unwieldy? I ended up just dipping very lightly, directly into the mesh and tapping off the excess -- maybe giving a swirl in the lid to distribute it more evenly if necessary.
Like the mineral foundation, the powder gives a lovely, natural, even finish - airbrushed without seeming like you've caked on a lot of makeup. I didn't particularly like using it with the mineral powder foundation that I was sent along with it, as it didn't play particularly nicely with some parts of my face that trend toward having flaky skin, but on top of my usual liquid foundation it looks great and pulls back a little of that oily sheen my combo skin can sometimes do.
Light touch! Go directly into the mesh and then tap off excess.
All skin types as long as your foundation is right for your skin.
