I am always on the hunt for new makeup to play with and when I came across the NATIO Cream to Powder Foundation and found out that it had won the 2016 Prix de marie claire Awards for best Australian Beauty Brand & Best Makeup Product (Steal) I was overjoyed.
Firstly I love the packaging, It comes with a sponge that is housed in the little compartment under the mirror and the compact is the perfect size to pop in my handbag for touch ups on the go. The formula is hydrating, lightweight and has a soft consistency that smoothes on as a cream and sets to a velvety soft powder finish. It evens out skin tone, covers imperfections and gives medium coverage but can be built up if necessary. For the best results, allow each layer to settle before applying the next.
I love the way it feels on my skin, it contains Argan and Jojoba to hydrate and Vitamin E to help protect and soften the skin. Natio is locally made and cruelty free and at 19.95 AUD it is also a steal. It comes in 3 shades, Light, Light Honey and Medium. The Light shade was the perfect match for my cool undertones/pale/combination skin and even though I often get oily on my T-Zone, I was still matte and shine free throughout the day.
