I’m a liquid foundation girl through and through but when I was offered the chance to try the NATorigin Loose Powder Foundation I couldn’t resist, everything else I’ve tried from them has been fab so I thought why not? The foundation is made using 100% naturally sourced ingredients and it is a certified organic product, it’s Hypoallergenic too so perfect for sensitive skin.
The ingredients in the foundation are actually beneficial to your skin too, the organic arctic raspberry seed helps to soothe, soften and defend against free-radicals. There’s also sunflower seed oil to help keep the skin hydrated and organic rosemary leaf extract to soothe irritated skin. The powder itself is made from the crushed shells of organic argan nuts which are famed for their high levels of Vitamin E and healing properties.
The powder itself is soft and easy to blend, it has tiny bits of glitter in it to help illuminate the skin and the coverage can be built up. It leaves the skin with a matte but healthy finish and lasts quite well on normal skin types. To apply tap a bit of powder in to the lid of the pot and swirl your brush, then tap off any excess before buffing into your skin.
The only downside to this product, for me, is the shade range – there are currently only 4 shades available this one (Bio Cashmere) being the lightest. This shade is far too dark for my skin to use as a foundation, especially at this time of year, but I have been using it to add a bit of colour to my cheeks and temples as a subtle bronze shade. I really enjoy using the foundation in this way as the shimmers make it look really pretty. Perhaps in summer I will be able to use the foundation as it’s intended but I’m pretty happy using it as a bronzer/blusher for now.
If you’re skintone is darker than my deathly pallor, you can buy the NATorigin Loose Powder Foundation from the NATorigin website for £17.75
