Despite knowing about this foundation for years, I'd never considered it. In my mind, I figured it would probably cause breakouts or itching on my skin. But my local Priceline was doing a makeup-event thing, and I let a sales lady try this on my skin. I was immediately impressed by the perfect colour match. I'm very fair and struggle to find a match. I liked the natural finish too, and the coverage that was effective but not heavy. Also, it was cheap and then even better, on special! I've been using this for almost 1 month and had no problems with breakouts, irritation or oxidation. It's the only foundation I've owned that applies just as quick with a brush as with my hands. I like to apply it with a brush, then buff out any lines with my fingers after. It can be built up for extra coverage without looking cakey, but I find it quickly looks greasy without a touch of powder. I like how it still looks natural and luminous with powder. Stays on all day without melting, but it washes off easily. The bottle is so convenient too. I'll definitely buy it again!

I decided I wanted to try something new after having used maybelline dream matte mousse for a long time. Looking for a foundation that does not use many animal by-products or very many chemicals. Since I love natio products I decided to try this foundation. I purchased in medium tan and absolutely loved it. Very lightweight - had to keep layering it up a bit to get desired coverage but it was gradual and didnt make me look like i caked on a tonne of foundation. Looks natural. Good finish. Looked even better when I set it with bronzer. Awesome product.

I love this foundation, good for ance prone skin, or sensitive as it doesn't contain mineral oil and also doesn't have Many ingredients,
Very natural, light and has a dewy finish, when powdered it has the best coverage perfect for every day.
I use a beauty blender for application.
Around $20 in Australia which is okay for mineral foundation, also comes with quite a lot of product.

I really am fussy when it comes to foundations. I hate using anything that I am not 100% happy with. I had been using Clinique for quite a while, but towards the end was feeling pretty unsatisfied. So I went on the search to find a new foundation.
I saw a friend wearing this Natio foundation and asked her about it. When she told me it was Natio I wont lie, I was pretty skeptical to try it. It was quite a bit cheaper then the clinique and could be bought at a local chemist so I was apprehensive to try it.
I really love this foundation for many reasons:
1 - You do not need a lot to cover your face
2 - the coverage is easily buildable - can be less during the day and then heavier at night
3 - Blends easily and doesnt dry up before it is properly blended
4 - Long lasting and doesnt sweat off
5 - The packaging is simple and easy to manage
Now I admitt I havent used this foundation for a very long time but I had to write a review straight away because so far I love it
I definitely recommend it! xxxx

Lovely product by an Australian brand. The first positive of this is that it is relatively cheap by Australian standards ($19.95). The next is that the bottle is very user friendly - it comes with a fine nozzle and a squeezable plastic bottle.
I have found that the darkest shade Deep Tan is a perfect match for my NC42 skin tone as it has a nice mix of yellow with a hint of pink to give it a more realistic cast to the skin. It applies beautifully with fingers and a pea-sized amount is more than enough to cover the whole face and add a bit extra to spots that need a bit more coverage. Overall, this is a light to medium coverage but i think it's buildable. The finish is dewy, not at all cakey, and I set this with powder. On my oily skin, I only need to re-powder once or twice during the day. The foundation stays on for most of the day and makes my skin look lovely and smooth.
It's similar to the MAC Face and Body Foundation, which I got a sample size of to try out. It's got similar consistency, packaging and coverage. However, this gives me a much more matte finish than the F&B, wears longer, and is less than half the price to boot! I wore the F&B and was finding that I needed to touch up and re-powder every few hours whereas the Natio foundation has been nicely matte for most of the day and 12 hours after application, showed only a little wear
Definitely will repurchase if something better doesn't come along (I'm in an experimental phase with foundations at present)

Love this foundation! Goes on nice and smooth and provides good coverage. Set it with powder and it looks flawless and natural. Have been using this winter/spring- hopefully it's as good for summer :)

i really love this foundation, it ticks all the boxes, well almost. As for being a buildable coverage, sensitive on skin, light, wearable and easy to apply foundation, natio has definitely suceeded. My only problem is that it smelled really bad, like cheap plastic gone wrong. I'm not sure if anyone else noticed this, and maybe it was just a bad batch, but it was pretty strong. Anyway, i forgive the foundation because you can't smell it on you and it fades. Overall, i totally love this foundation and wear it everyday!! Defs buying it again!

this is my go-to winter foundation. it's a little too heavy and oily for me to wear in summer, but it's perfect for medium, buildable coverage in winter. (:
this doesn't break me out, and as long as i set it with powder it lasts all day.
it's reasonably priced and you get a lot in the bottle. the one thing i will say is that i'm not a fan of foundations coming in bottles like this, but that's a small price to pay for the benefits.
Natio is one of the few brands that have a shade pale enough for me with a warm undertone, which is also great.
i definitely recommend this to anyone with normal to dry skin for any time of year, and to people with combination skin for the winter months.

i really liked this product!!
i wasn't expecting this product to be very good because i have heard from countless people that natio makes them break out, etc..
but desperately in need for a foundation which was MY SKINTONE i purchased it, seeing as when i tested it it seemed to match my skin tone perfectly. I WAS RIGHT. it is the ONLY foundation i have ever used which matches my skin tone. It has fantastic coverage yet is one of those foundations which makes your skin look flawless, but doesn't make you appear like you are wearing stacks of foundation.
only downside for some people is that it is a bit dewy. I can work with this as my skin can get quite dry, but for othters; beware!
Overall FANTASTIC foundation!

WOW, I can't believe this was NZD$20! What a remarkable bargain! I love this stuff. Its great for day to day wear at work, dewy, moisterizing, gentle. I have pretty good skin, so like a light foundation to even me out a little, and totally rate this. i use MAC Mineralize (liquid) if I want more coverage. Love it, recommend it! The only thing I will say is that the colours available are a little limited. If you had darker skin you probably wouldn't have any luck.

This foundation was fantastic for my skin! the light, silky feel felt very light-weight on my skin without making me feel like i had anything on. It had a very dewy finish, making my skin look fresh, moist and healthy. I hadn't worn liquid mineral makeup before, so after using this product i applied rimmel perfect match foundation to see if there was a difference in the feel of the product. The rimmel foundation felt a lot heavier and made me feel like i had alot of product on my skin. The Natio mineral liquid foundation is definitely one of the best I've tried!!!

I have problematic skin and I often get pimples on my chin but it had been behaving for a while. Until I used this foundation two days in a row. Woe and behold, a pimple for each day! I found it had a bare minimum amount of coverage and if it was even slightly warm, it got very noticeably blotchy to the point where my friend actually pointed it out to me. Never buying this again.

I wanted to give my skin a break from the Colorstay foundation and wanted a lighter option. I swatched this in the store and found it to be quite light in terms of coverage, so I brought this in the medium. I have to say the range of shades is quite limited and would best suit girls with fair to medium skin, so that may be a disadvantage for tanner girls. The coverage is very light and feels nice since it doesn't feel like I'm wearing foundation as opposed to the colorstay. Since I have oily skin, I had to blot and re-powder my face every couple of hours which was a pain, but it was more natural looking than the colorstay which is what I was going for. I applied it with a foundation sponge and used a concealer as well. I would only buy again since it has not broken me out.

LOVE this foundation! Im really slack with taking makeup off after a long day (or a long night out!) so mineral was really the best way to go (although ideally i shuld wash it off!). I love the light coverage, gives you a lovely healthy glow and dosnt stir up acne (which i am prone to). It comes in a nice little squeeze bottle which is small enough to keep in my bag for when im doing my makeup on the run (I kno, classy right?) and it is so easy to use. This is now my staple foundation and am luuuurving it!

Cheap, makes my skin glow, light coverage and does not make me go oily. Great product for its price!

Love this foundation. Although the coverage is not great... but what can you expect from a MINERAL foundation? Most mineral liquid foundations I have tried are exactly the same e.g. Maybelline, Australis, Revlon etc... I'd prefer a healthier foundation rather than a full coverage, acne causing foundation. I wear a primer and base foundation underneath and it brings the light coverage to a medium-buildable coverage. Lovely bottle presentation and great amount for price. I recommend this to anyone.!

I actually quite like this foundation. It's really dewy, gives me a nice glow and I think the colour looks great on my skin. It is more of a daytime foundation as it's really natural looking (I use Estee Lauder's futurist for going out etc). But team it with Natio's Mineral Powder and you've got a great daytime look without all of the chemicals of most foundations. This has minimal ingredients and jojoba oil and vitamin e and c. For work I have to wear quite a bit of makeup so this is great for giving my skin a break for when i'm not working. It's a great price too and easy to apply (I just use my fingers). All in all I love it!

I found this foundation really horrible.. The colour is not right for me, and it is really thick and oily, giving me a shiny and cakey finish. Also, despite the thickness, the coverage is also terrible, similar to just a tinted moisturiser. Maybe it just doesn't work for me as I'm used to powder foundations rather than liquids, but I wouldn't recommend this product.

This product is a great price and a decent product. It contains minimal ingredients and no fragrance so is great for my sensitive skin. I am also prone to breakouts and it doesn't cause me any.
It gives a medium/light coverage - although I have to say that I haven't noticed any 'luminous glow' that some of the marketing claims :)
Great everyday foundation for evening out skin tone and covering minor imperfections. I have also been using it as an undereye concealer as I've yet to find another product without parabens, fragrance etc that I would trust for my sensitive skin.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I like this foundation, I use it everyday! Mainly by it self but also mixed with another (revlon photoready)
I would describe this as a light, natural dewy coverage. Super easy to apply, I do like you would a moisturiser. Squeeze on to fingertips and smooth on to face.
It hasnt broken me out and doesnt highlight flaws.
Aussie brand, aussie made and $20 for 50ml its great value for money as most foundations are on 25-30ml.
