Living Nature Luminous Pressed Powder Review

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm going to bring you a quick review of a product that I chose to try as part of the My Pure blogger's scheme - this time I decided to give this beautiful Living Nature Luminous pressed powder a try.

The first thing I noticed about Living Nature is that they've really invest in their design and packaging - something that some organic makeup companies I've reviewed in the past haven't really bothered in. This is possibly the most beautiful packaging for pressed powder I've ever seen!

I mean how can I not love a piece of packaging that reminds me to chill out, take a moment and just... breathe.

See, I told you it was beautiful! Now, it's all very well and good having beautiful packaging but how does it hold up performance wise? Amazingly - I utterly adore using this powder, so much so that its become my daily go to base product (overtaking MAC MSF Natural in Light Medium). It gives a light even coverage and really does give the skin that extra lift and luminous glow - it gets rid of all my redness in my cheeks and nose but doesn't leave me feeling caked in makeup. You might be able to see some tiny bits of glitter in the picture above but I can't say I've actually noticed them at all. I've found that it lasts well and doesn't cling too much to my dry bits :)

I'm trying this in the lightest option (Fair) which is fine for my winter tone but I might need to go up a colour for summer - even now fair is edging towards being a little on the light side, but I do like to play it safe wherever possible.

If you want to see what this looks like on the skin, watch either of my most recent youtube videos as I'm wearing this powder in both of them :)

Price: £17.99

  3. This sounds fab, I might get this when I next order from MyPure :) xxx

  4. You forgot to mention the most important part.. it's from New Zealand!

    I've tried a few things from Living Nature, I used to use their eyeliner all the time and a lot of their skincare. I was always annoyed that they made their powders and foundations so dark though. I guess they were trying to accomodate Maori skintone but they forgot us pale people!
