Nude by Nature

Posted by Leigh

nudebynatureI could probably count on one hand the amount of times I have worn makeup this year. I am not a makeup girl, and I guess a lot of it comes down to having trouble finding the right product and colour for my skin, I have tried quite a few.

I went into Priceline the other night to check out what was on offer and got chatting to one of the girls. She suggested I try some Nude by Nature.

Nude by Nature is a 100% mineral make up that consists of just 4 ingredients. It evens out your complexion and conceals imperfections and blemishes. The mineral formula is kind to even sensitive skin and will not block pores. It is also water resistant and provides added UVA/UVB protection.  It is Australian made and owned and not tested on animals.

I have seen their ads on TV, and their site is a little spammy  looking (I am not even going to link to it) which does them no favours. Given the dodgy marketing I would never have given it a second thought before being given a demo.

It is meant to be used as a 3 part system, a bronzer, the main foundation and a finishing veil. At $40, I wasn’t about to buy them all, it’s a bit more than the crappy $15 stuff I usually buy (perhaps there in lies my problem) So I just bought the Mineral cover to give it a try.

I am totally in love! It is awesome. So easy to apply, even for a n00b like me. Covers your spots and uneven skin tone all with the swirl of a brush. Great for summer when you might get a little sweaty. Even the manpet commented, and it usually takes him 2 weeks to notice I’ve had a haircut. I’m not into a bronzer, but I will definitely be going back for the finishing veil which.

Available from Priceline and other cosmetic retailers for around $38 (definitely steer clear of buying from their TV ads or website, way too expensive)

    I like the mineral makeup, but the one I am using now takes ages to cover my face…..and it’s not that big.
    Next time I go into Priceline I will keep an eye out for it….also have a club voucher so that will help with the price.

    I’ve always wondered about this makeup but the ad freaks me out a bit. I don’t trust the ad…

    I’ve been meaning to find another concealer for ages since the one I used stopped being made. I grabbed just the cover tonight at Priceline – I’m pretty crap with a brush, but we’ll see how it goes!

    hmmm this sounds interesting!
    i never wear more make up that some mascara and maybe eyeliner on a good day, so this sounds ideal for me
    especially because my skin has been acting up!

    Love this product- have been using I.D Bare Minerals last few years and loved it- this is even better- more natural looking, which I didn’t think was possible!

    Tip, use a professional blush brush for the bronzer to get it just right or effect will be muddy.

    I have oily skin and has been perfect for it-only comment: for me, I have to buff the shine away every couple hours, but their brush is brilliant, and it literally takes 5 seconds- so is no hassle when you consider it’s natural looking AND doing good things for your skin.

    All makeup is a guest on your face, so you have to check in now and then and maintain it:)

    But highly recommend- it’s an Australian company- look at how most Australian ad’s, movies, sitcoms etc look compared to American/oversea’s one’s- we aren’t really good at marketing and presenting something in a polished, professional, glamorous way.

    Some would say it’s part of our charm. lol

    But anyway- try it, and absolutely get their brush for the mineral cover and the veil!

    Long post, sorry!:)

    i bought nude by nature from pharmacy direct it’s really cheap you get all the powders and the brush for about $55 dollars delivered to ur door for about $60 dollars.

    I tried this product due to the advertisments on UK TV and think these products are of very poor compared to some of the leading brands.

    I have been using Veil cover cream for 20 years and still have not found a product as good

    I couldn’t decide between Bare Escentuals and Nude by Nature, so i tried both. I got the free trial of Nude by Nature and just a single foundation of the Be Minerals range online ($30 online vs $79.99, in myer!) So, I liked both, but decided that Nude by Nature was way too expensive, so I called to return it. Once I had been given my code, they offered to give it to me for $99.95. So I took the offer! Very happy with it, although they need to make a clip lid over the powder holes, so the powder doesnt spill everywhere!
