Review: Natio Mineral Pressed Powder

Hey guys, hope you've all been well and having an amazing week so far! Today I'm going to do a review on the Natio mineral pressed powder. I actually received this powder as a gift with purchase when I spent a certain amount in the store Priceline. You were given a gift bag with over $120 worth of free beauty items, and I was fortunate enough to receive this pressed powder in the perfect shade for my skin! 

This is my first Natio product, I haven't really heard many reviews about them, so I never tried any of their products. And honestly, I don't really use many of the Australian beauty products, only because there's never that many reviews about them. I wasn't expecting much from this powder, but when I used it for the first time I was amazed. It was seriously the perfect shade, the perfect coverage and it did not feel caked/heavy on my face at all. I find that that it eliminates shine on my face, leaving it very matte and just sets my foundation/concealer extremely well. The coverage is quite good that you could skip foundation and just use concealer and powder! I am just in love with this powder at the moment. I have used other drugstore powders such as the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder and CoverGirl Clean Pressed Powder but this one is by far my favourite! I have been reaching for this powder everyday since I received it in the gift bag, and I cannot say a bad thing about this product. 

 The packaging is also quite lovely, it has a nice simple chic black packaging. It also has a large mirror which is very convenient. The only thing negative thing i could say about this is that it can get a little messy if you don't wipe off the excess powder after use.

If you're from Australia, I would definitely recommend trying this powder. If you have used this before, please let me know how you feel about, I would love to hear your opinions! I'm pretty sure you can purchase this powder from stores such as David Jones, Priceline...possibly Target? It is also quite cheap retailing at $17-$18. If you're not from Australia, let me know what your favourite powders are, I would love to try out different ones!
