NATorigin Loose Powder Foundation in Dune

I usually don't get on with Powder Foundations, especially loose mineral formula's at all. Their coverage does nothing for me, they enlarge my pores and dry out the skin. I have to admit however that I was a huge mineral powder foundation fan when I started out with make-up initially and this does bring back memories.

The NATorigin Powder Foundation comes in 4 shades which I believe should cater a vast variety of skin tones. I am the darkest shade available in their range namely Dune. However I could have gotten away with a few shades lighter as this is a tad bit tanned for my NC30 skin tone at present.

It's a gorgeous dusky shade if you're looking to recreate that warm glow from the summer. Regarding pigmentation, it provides just the right amount of colour to make you feel you have your face on when you leave home. Having said that, it feels almost non-existent on the skin without any sign of cakiness at all.

I like how it's satin finish leaves a glow on the face alongside curbing the oily areas at the same time. Due to is hydrating ability, mattifying the oily t-zone is not its speciality as I found oil does seem to peep out at the end of the day hence requiring a touch up.

The good news is that its suitable for sensitive skin with allergies so it hasn't broken us (me and my sister have been giving this a go!) out at all.

Due to its moisturising and soothing properties that deliver a slightly dewy finish, I'd say its more suitable for those with dry to normal skin types who either like a light to medium finish or want that 'no make-up' make-up look.

Especially as winter's almost here (Hello Starbucks red cups!), you'd want to incorporate such hydrating products in your make-up regime that are good for conditioning the skin.
