Setting powder is definitely one of the most underrated makeup products, but something that every oily skinned person knows about and loves! So does the Nude by Nature Loose Setting Powder live up to expectations?
Behind the Brand
Nude by Nature began in 2008 in Sydney Australia, quickly becoming a popular natural cosmetics brand and spreading across the globe. Their cosmetics are formulated without synthetic ingredients, preservatives or other potentially harmful chemicals. They pride their products on good ingredients that not only work but benefit inner beauty as well.

Is it worth the price?
There’s no denying that $30 is a steep price, but it seems that most natural setting powders seem to be on the pricier end of things (see: Sappho Organic Setting Powder.) But, I have to admit that the Nude by Nature Loose Setting Powder lives up to its claims.
The Nude by Nature Translucent Loose Finishing Powder easily controls oil and shine throughout the course of the day and applies smoothly. I cannot fault its wear in any way.
The Nude By Nature Loose Setting Powder is nowhere near being zero-waste, which is a fairly new thing I am focusing on in my beauty routine. The packaging is a large circular, plastic container which really is quite chunky and not easy for travel.
Also, I feel as though it will be quite difficult to take apart and attempt to reuse or even properly recycle (see: How to properly recycle.) Therefore I am on the fence whether it is worth to repurchase, for myself.
I know this is an extremely short review. I think the Nude by Nature Loose Setting Powder is well worth the money and lives up to its claims for extending makeup wear time. If you’re on the market for a clean loose setting powder this is definitely one to invest in!
However, if you are also on the hunt for a zero-waste setting powder… well, I am working on that, don’t you worry!
Nude by Nature is new to Canada in 2018, they are available exclusively at Shopper’s Drug Mart.
