Oh man, was this foundation a disappointment. I have a few products from Nude by Nature that I love so I was SO hopeful that this Flawless Liquid Foundation would work for me but… I. Just. Don’t. Love. It.
But firstly, the pros:
* The packaging is really beautiful: Frosted glass bottle. Rose gold cap and a nice pump. This looks and feels lux. It retails for $39.95 so it isn’t budget makeup!
* Nude by Nature prides themselves on using good ingredients and it claims to be appropriate for even very sensitive skin.
And to be fair, for me, that is where the pros end.
They advertise this as being medium, build able coverage with a long lasting, satin matte finish that is like a ‘second skin.’ I mean it SOUNDS great but in my experience none of these claims were realised.
Firstly, this foundation oxidises like nobody’s business. I was SHOCKED. The colour darkened so much and went so orange it became a total mis-match shade wise.
Secondly the coverage is so sheer. Two coats and all my blemishes were still totally visible. It’s almost more like a bb cream. In an attempt for any kind of coverage I used it in combination with the Nude by Nature powder mineral foundation but the finished look was quite cakey. (FYI I quite like the powder mineral foundation normally). Also, this Flawless Liquid Foundation doesn’t last on my skin. I could see it wearing off completely within a couple of hours and by the end of the day I could barely see it left on my skin.
Lastly, this is the patchiest foundation I have ever tried. I literally couldn’t get this to blend with a brush or a sponge. It’s like as you blend, it just picks up on its self and it was lifting off as quickly as I could lay it down.
This is a foundation I just don’t understand. In my experience the product is so different to the description I’m Left wondering how it made it through to sale. If you use and love this, please let me know how you make it work. I purchased this on sale and I’m SO glad I did because this isn’t a cheap foundation and it’s been a total fail for me.
If you want to try the Nude by Nature brand I can really recommend their brushes and they sell them in great value sets which are well worth the money.
Have a wonderful day!
