A picture of NATOrigin Loose Powder Foundation

After trying the Inika Mineral Foundation Powder (read review here) I learnt that I actually quite like the idea of powder foundations. They were once a foundation I wouldn't go near as I didn't think they'd ever provide enough coverage. But I was wrong. And I am now happily branching out to more powder foundations. Step in the NATOrigin Loose Powder Foundation.

NATOrigin is still a relatively new brand to me, but I have tried their Lengthening Mascara (read review here) which I really liked so I was excited to see how their powder foundation faired in comparison. 

The NATOrigin Loose Powder Foundation is formulated with ultra-micronised shells of organic argan nuts and is a new type of foundation. It is enriched with extracts of organic artic raspberry seed oil for it's soothing, softening and anti-free radical properties, as well as sunflower seed oil and organic rosemary leaf extract. It enhances skin tone, illuminates and brightens the skin, then mattifies shine, all in one wonderful product! It is extremely soft with a long-lasting hold, it caresses the skin leaving the complexion with a light, satiny finish and it is formulated for those with even the most sensitive of skin. It has a light, natural fresh scent, and is chemical free. Sounds good, right? But is it?

Yes, it really is! In comparison to my Inika Mineral Foundation, it doesn't quite top the Inika one. But it is lovely all the same. I quite like this one when I've been using self-tan as it is just a touch darker than my skin tone but when I have a tan it looks lovely on. It goes on really easy too and I especially love using it with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush! I think this is definitely going to get more use in the warmer months, due to the shade, but it's definitely a powder foundation I will be continuing to reach for!
