Living Nature Foundation - FOTD

Living Nature is a brand from New Zealand and uses only 100% natural ingredients. With almost every foundation in the market being 'natural' and almost every foundation that I own being 'natural' too, I think I am slowly getting on the all-natural bandwagon and simply cannot do if a foundation does not come along with this tag.

This is their 'all natural foundation that leaves your skin feeling soft, fresh and flawless'. 

They have 6 shades available which I was sceptical to choose from and finally decided to get 'pure honey' which surprisingly is lighter than what it appears on the website swatch yet still a very good match for my NC30 skin tone.

Hence a tip whist buying this foundation, always go for a shade darker to be on the safer side.

I think this foundation is pretty different compared to the rest that I've tried. It gives a nice dewy appearance, whereas it dries completely matte and does not feel tacky at all too.

I really like the fact that it dries matte in texture and does not move. It removes the need to wait for the foundation to dry or to set it with powder. However I still like to powder my t-zone as its overall finish is on the dewy side.

I had no issues with blending it and it glides on very smoothly leaving my skin velvety smooth. It did not irritate my sensitive skin, gave pretty good medium coverage and still felt like I am wearing nothing at all. It is slightly moisturising too, which is good as it does not enhance any dry patches on my face.

The one and only problem with this is that it is not waterproof at all! A drop of water on your face and this baby starts dripping down, which is a shame considering how lovely this foundation is overall. 

Regardless, I still wear it when I am sure it won't rain - hard to predict in London I know. I have to carry out such weather checks before wearing Dior Show Mascara too so I will be doing it for this too now :p

For £18, I think it is money well spent if you are on the hunt for a good quality, organic, medium-coverage foundation for dry-sensitive skin.

It looks great on you. I couldn't deal with the non-waterproof thing though.
I love your dewy your face looks.
