Okay Nude Products i have used:
Worked okay pretty much exactly like a basic moisturiser, had some colour but didnt notice any difference in my skin. Light to no coverage in my opinon. Also turned my face a bit red, i have sensitive skin and alot of the nude range didnt agree with me. Hardly lasted and i preffered my own mosituriser to this.
Big DO NOT BUY this mascara is extremely smudgy and the brush when you take it out is clumped full of product and it goes everywhere. Slightest touch and this mascara runs it never seems to dry at all. It does have a nice texture and your eyelashes dont feel as gross but messy product.
I do like this blush it is highly shiny and pigmented though but does provide a niceish glow and seems to suit alot of people. Not a favourite but its alright
My skin went red straight away and felt like it was burning as soon as I applied it also has a slightly nasty smell as well in my opinon would not recommend
I didnt love these I got a set in a brown colour that looked more black eye. The colours are very matt and i didnt find too nice on, i prefer a bit of shine. Was hard to apply to look like i was wearing any, didnt stay on and tended to smudge off alot
Alright its very light and subtle and I find wears off very quickly. Would more wear this as a powder over the top of foundation it is good for oily skin as it does seem to have a mattifying effect. Extrememly natural powder hardly looks like you're actually wearing anything at all. Not really all its hyped up to be in my opinon but it does look nice one some people, if you have nice skin and want a very light cover this is for you

I've used Nude off and on for awhile now and while it's a decent mineral make up I still end up going back to my chemical ridden ones because they just do a better job. Pros: doesn't break me out, natural ingredients, has SPF, allows skin to breathe. Cons: definitely not long wear foundation - it oxidizes after about 4 or so hours, can go chalky, highlights and sticks to any dry or flaky areas. Like most powders, this needs a primer underneath. Applying this is a messy job, the powder literally goes everywhere! Coverage is light to medium. I agree that they should make a pressed powder for this range. They also need to extend the colour range - you can only choose from light, medium or dark and i'm in between so i end up buying both light and medium and mixing them together. Nowadays I only use this on weekends or when I don't need much coverage.

I wish they would make a pressed version of this... if they did i would buy it again
My skin is normal and this definately needs a good moisturising primer/base before use as this catches any dry skin AT ALL. This has decent coverage and looks extremely natural on my skin tone. Also this is quite pricey but I got a sample version for free from my friend's mother's company :3

I first got this product for my birthday in a 5 product combo kit; Mineral Powder, Mineral Veil, Bronzer, Primer and the Kabuki brush. This was my first make-up product of any kind, and I have to admit I did like it, for a while. After sometime I grew old of its non-existent coverage, and the chalky, dry feeling I felt after I applied the products. I no longer use this product, but for some this might be the ideal make-up.
- I like the natural smell, others don't.
- Doesn't appear to have any real effect on the products staying power.
- Feels smooth.
- Won't break you out.
- 3 Shades.
- Oxidisation makes you go orange.
- Chalky once applied especially under the eyes, around the nostrils, and around the mouth area.
- Chalkiness leads to dryness, flakiness, and a tight, uncomfortable face.
- Product does feel smooth, in the package.
- Packaging is very tedious to manage without getting everywhere.
- Last for less then 4 hours, and hates heat, cold and just about every weather climate.
- Depending on application, 6/10 it will tend to look very un-natural.
- Light coverage, redness is still very much there.
- Won't break you out.
- White, goes on white, and stays white.
- The places the mineral powder chalked up are now even worse.
- Looks lights.
- Doesn't blend on top of the mineral powder, just sits there looking awful.
- Staying power no more then 4 hours.
- Packaging is just as bad as the mineral powder.
- Doesn't hold value; there is no benefit of wearing this, feels like another powder.
- Light coverage, redness is still very much their.
- Won't break you out.
- Very reddish/brownish.
- Looks dirty on lighter skin tones.
- Builds up quickly.
- Feels soft.
- Packaging is terrible, again.
- Won't break you out.
- Dont know of its staying power, have not tried to wear it out before due to its dark pigment.
- Collects make-up like crazy, and impossible to clean.
- Gets stiff over time.
- Feels scratchy due to stiffness; my face would look pink after applying the powders due to the scratchiness.
- Doesn't blend make-up well.
This make-up to me was a first time thing, so it did make me feel great because i had never worn anything like it before. As time went on and my make-up knowledge expanded I realised there were too many negatives outweighing the positives. For some this make-up would be great, it never broke me out, and can look nice over nice skin. For me, this was not the best product, but for others it may be perfect.

I've seen Nude advertised on TV but imagined it would be one of those typical makeups that i can buy at the chemist for $5. I saw it somewhat on sale in a local hair shop just today and oh my god!
I've always struggled with makeup, I have fairly fare skin and i love the tanned look but i always end up too orange or patchy. But this is amazing!
I will surely be buying this again! The starter pack has everything you could possibly need, I will never purchase other makeup again!
Thankyou Nude !

i never really loved this foundation until i stopped using Prestige skin loving minerals which broke out my skin really bad. i thought i've grown out of my acne prone skin and have become less cautious about the things i put on my face. BIG MISTAKE!
Coverage of this foundation is light, doesn't conceal very well but good enough to cover minor imperfections. skin looks very natural, it's hardly detectable. you need a good moisturiser for the powder to stick or else it just sinks into the pores and makes them noticeable. light suits my fair asian skin perfectly. the most important thing is that it doesn't break me out and it's good to my skin. it's my hg for now.

Woke up the other morning with my full face still on and thought to myself, gross, it looks so unnatural with liquid and surely all the ingredients are suffocating my skin!!
Decided I would find a gentle powder and use with my concealer.
My co-worker said she used this and her skin always looks flawless!
I'm so happy!!! Bit of concealer and some of this and my skin looks great!!!!
NO oxidizing, NO foundation line or makeup look, just nice healthy skin!!!
And I don't feel guilty putting it all over my skin. Great color match and only touched up once in my 9 hour hour shift today.
From now on, I will ONLY wear this in the day and liquid when I go out.
Could not be happier :)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product!
I have medium, oily skin and this product is amazing without the nasty chemicals.
The coverage is great, it looks natural, it feels light and you can honestly build up coverage for those problem areas.
Packaging is ok, the price is great. You can always find it on special in Priceline, they always go down to $30 for a tub which lasts forever.
Give it a go. I had high hopes for this product and it was better than what I expected.

Look, I don't love this foundation. Light is too light for me, medium is too orangey. I do sometimes mix the two.
It's ok, but I prefer Silk Naturals or Mirenesse skin clone to this foundation.
Plenty of people love the Nude foundation though.....

This powder is honestly nothing special, I'm not exactly the biggest powder fan but after receiving Nude as a gift I thought I'd give it a go to find out why it's apparently 'Australia's most loved mineral foundation'.
Has alright coverage for normal skin but doesn't cover problem areas when used alone
From the outside, packaging is quite nice and simplistic
Good for use to set foundation
You do get a fair amount of product
So much spillage that I cannot enjoy this product at all, powder stores up under the lid
Coverage is not suited to anyone who likes medium to full coverage
Doesn't last long at all even with primer underneath
Is quite expensive for the quality of packaging and product
Ads are bloody annoying
Range is limited to three colours (light/medium/dark)
Did I mention the spillage?
Will never repurchase ever again.

I really love this product but do have a few positives and negatives.
- Personally it doesnt seem to last all day and i need to do touch-ups, i brought the travel brush which are great to use on the go.
- If you need alot of coverage its probably not the best product for you unless you buy the liquid foundation which i love for those days i have breakouts
- Hate the concealer, i think its too thick and gluggy. I use a different brand instead.
- The packaging can be annoying, trying to tip the right amount out into the lid or if you take it in your handbag and it rolls around a bit then the next time you open it theres a ton of powder that falls into the lid and goes everywhere you end up wasting a fair bit.
- Feels very light and looks natural and doesnt look like you applied your makeup with a shovel, great for work and everyday wear. The liquid foundation is excellent when u want more coverage for nights out
- Love the Finishing veil, it just seems to finish the look.
- The brush is super soft
- Application time is super quick

I have fair skin, so I chose the Light (as earlier reviewers have stated, there are only three colors to choose from: Light, Medium, and Dark).
For those of you who are considering changing from liquid to mineral powder foundations, please try to get your hands on a sample-size product first. It takes some getting used to. I personally went from a Dior liquid foundation which I applied with a foundation brush, to this product, which at first I found messy (powder everywhere) and inconvenient (couldn't really take it with me). I also found the coverage quite light; I like something that evens out my skin tone a little more. I *could* put on more powder, but that would give me a floury look which is not what I'm after.
My answer has been to use a tinted moisturizer first. I use Dove's tinted moisturizer which has an SPF 15. The reason this combination works well for me is that Dove's product is a little dark for my skin, and quite moist, so that I can use a little more of the mineral makeup. The result is a really natural, smooth, beautiful coverage. I use a Lancome blush to give my cheeks a glow.
So, although I initially thought this purchase was a massive fail, I now use it every day along with the tinted moisturizer. And look, I'm sure there are better products than the Dove one out there, but for the money I think it does a good job.
Pros: easy application (after you get the hang of it the powder thing), very even appearance with no tide marks.
Cons: not particularly easy to apply on the go, limited choice of shades, needs a top-up with some pressed powder or oil-blotting paper during the day.

I really wanted to love this product, but as others have said, it only comes in three shades. The medium is too dark and the light is too light (so I mixed them together). The coverage is not great and I found it sat in my pores and after an hour or so, I am a big ole greasy mess. Another product thats sitting in the "oh well" box.

Hey! I've been using Nude by Nature for over a year and a half now and it's still going! I've been a heavy user of Nude by Nature for a year now, until I decided to finally veer into the 'full' foundations (MAC amongst them).
My initial thoughts of Nude by Nature was as follows: WoW. I literally thought that it was a miracle, forget the BB cream! After applying it I still get nice compliments from people because of the natural glow it brings to the skin.
What I love most about this mineral foundation is that a little goes a long way, and even by itself the powder does quite a decent job of concealing your blemishes, or at the very least making them appear less visible. This is a product that I would recommend to many people out there that are just starting out, or are in search of a good mineral make-up. In Australia it is a top seller at a reasonable price (I got it for $40 ages ago, but I think Target sells it for $35).
Down sides to this are that because it is a mineral powder this is not something that you can just throw into your bag at a moments notice; you actually have to shake the container to get to the product, and for obvious reasons that is not something you want in your bag. Another problem is distribution, and I mean this in the sense that when you get some onto your Nude by Nature brush (kind of like a kabuki brush) some of the foundation gets into the air, and then when your applying it don't be surprised that some will end up on your clothes. In my experience it WILL happen. But, concerning the distribution of the product on my face I don't have a complaint. Just be mindful that you need to spin the brush in circular motions, and holding your breath is never a bad idea.
Overall, this product is something that I will continue to keep in my makeup case because it's what you put on when you don't want to wear anything at all but want that extra coverage. Concerning redness, I find that applying a second or even third coat will almost completely banish the redness. Also to note is that I'm referring to this product without using it in conjunction with other products such as primers, setting powders, etc.

I've only been using Nude minerals for about 4 weeks now but I really like it. I only bought the product because I had run out of my Bare Essentials and was unable to find a retailer which sold it in this small town I'm now living in. I wouldn't go back to Bare Essentials after using Nude. This product lasts a lot longer and does the exact same job! Thumbs up! Its my new beauty must have.

Overall, I really like this mineral make up powder. I started off by using a little bit but then realised that I needed to use more of the powder as it is very finely milled. It gives me wonderful coverage and I like to use MAC's fix + spray afterward on my face to set the powder and make it look less powdery. I recommend purchasing the brush to apply the powder or using a dense kabuki brush to really work the product in.
I took off one lippy because the packaging is inconvenient to use as powder gets everywhere and the lid is kind of hard to close properly.
For reference, I am a MAC NC40 and I mix the medium & dark powder together to form my perfect shade.

Easy coverage for day to day wear, not too heavy which I love. Generally use concealer if I have a break out as well but is good for evening skin tone. Great if you have pretty clear skin in general and dont want/need heavy make-up. Best mineral make-up I've used.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Blue
I don't like this product at all. First of all, the commercials are annoying, the foundation is horrible and the brush annoys me. I wouldn't repurchase.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
One of the best mineral covers I've ever used! It is so natural looking and is great for all skin types. It covers the redness on my face as well as freckles. There are no harmful minerals which is even better. Sometimes it does rub off quite easily but it is still an amazing product! Also, the product lasts a really long time. I've had mine since January, which is now 9 months since I've had it. So it's great!!

This was my first ever makeup I bought, seeming I like how it was a loose powder and I was scared of liquid foundations.
As soon as i got it in Light I was hooked. I could wear it to my very makeup strict school with ease and it gave me the confidence I needed.
It gave a good coverage, not too light and not too heavy. It covered my freckles, redness and looked like my natural skin tone.
It isn't great for all day wear without touch ups, but it would still be ideal for schools that are strict on makeup.
I had this as my daily makeup for a year until now where I am no longer terrified of liquid foundations. A very good makeup for first timers as it is easy to apply with the separate brush.
