Nude By Nature – Have you heard about it? The number one mineral makeup brand in Australia arrived in Canada last month. It was sold exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart. I love them so far! Nude By Nature is cruelty-free and PETA-approved. Nude by Nature believes skin health is more important than covering it up. Nude by Nature products are made with natural ingredients like Kakudu Plum (antioxidants), Lilly Pilly (moisturizers), Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil (moisturizers), and Vitamins A, B, C, and E.
I usually save the best for last, but this foundation has me so excited that I have to share it with you first! Radiant PowderPowder (32CAD) is an award-winning mineral loose powder foundation with buildable coverage. It was a powder, and my skin was dehydrated, so I was hesitant to give it a try. It turned out to be a great combination!
It was applied with Nude from Nature’s Flawless Brush ($24) to build my coverage up to medium. It is highly pigmented, so it took me a little to achieve the desired result. It did not stick to dry areas and worked well over a healing acne scarlet. My face looked radiant and matte, with no signs of caking. Although it is difficult to describe, the result is stunning! It lasts all day without needing to be touched up. It is important to note that I applied sunscreen before applying the product. This is important for all powders, but it’s even more crucial when working with powders. I’m not impressed by the shade range of this foundation. This will be discussed in the final part of my post.
While we are on a foundation, I have been trying Nude By Nature’s Flawless Foundation (CAD 36), and it is not working for me. This foundation comes in a 20-piece extended range (online). It is divided into three groups: warm, neutral, and relaxed. It provides medium to full coverage and a satin matte finish. It is also free of oil and fragrance!
Unfortunately, the foundation stuck to the dry texture and patches of skin, making those areas look cakey. The formula didn’t last long on my skin. My skin is dry, which may be to blame. It is strange to me that the Radiant Powder Foundation worked well, while this one didn’t. This one suits normal, combination, and oily skin best.
Concealer is a part of my daily routine. It’s my go-to concealer for redness and pimples and for brightening my undereye area when I’m tired. Sometimes, I skip foundation entirely and use spot concealer! Nude By Nature offers two amazing concealers: Flawless Coverer (24 CAD) and Perfecting Coverer (24 CAD).
The flawless concealer comes in 8 shades (all neutrals) and is packaged in a twist-up stick. It is creamy and lasts a long time. I can even set it with PowderPowder to get more extended wear. Shade 01 is the perfect shade for my undereye area, as it’s just a touch lighter than mine. It can be used on my face for minor imperfections. However, I prefer a warmer undertone to make it more versatile to use on larger face areas.
Perfecting concealer comes in 8 shades (neutral). The concealer is a creamy liquid with hydrating properties. Nude by Nature claims that it is crease-proof. It is, for the most part. The highlight of this concealer was its slightly radiant finish and hydrating feeling.
I have been enjoying Nude By Nature’s Moisture Infusion lipgloss (21$). It contains Vitamin E, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, and Kakadu Plum. These ingredients work together to fight free radicals and intensely moisturize, strengthen, and repair the lips. They have slight tackiness but are not sticky and feel hydrating. The wear time is average at a few hours. If you eat or drink, it will take less. The glosses are slightly shiny and sparkly. There are ten colors to choose from, and the color is sheer enough to wear over lipstick.
Nude Lipstick by Nature’s Moisture Shine Lipstick has been a favorite of mine lately. Moisture shine Lipstick has intense hydration, is non-drying, and is very pigmented. One swipe is all it takes to achieve opaque coverage. The finish is very luminous. It has a shiny finish but is not as intense as a gloss. It has a wear time similar to satin lipstick but only lasts for a short time and can transfer quickly. I don’t mind reapplying lipstick, and I like it when the packaging looks as beautiful as Nude By Nature’s.
While I am happy with the quality and price of Nude By Nature’s products, the selection of shades could be better. There is a big difference between W2 and W4. W2 is fair, W4 is almost medium, and there isn’t a warm-toned ‘light’ shade between. W2 can be used in winter, with lots of bronzer/contour, and W4 for faux tanning. But it’s not the right match.
Shade gripes aside. This brand seems very promising, and I hope to test more of it soon!
