Warm up your look as the weather cools down with Natio!
With summer waning here in Australia, it's time to start thinking ahead to our winter looks and products that we can use to warm up our look over the cooler months to come.
Cue Natio Mineral Pressed Powder Bronzer, a gorgeous bronzer with a few health benefits for your skin to boot!
Bronzer is a great way to highlight your facial features and brighten your complexion, so it works really well to make you feel a bit better as the cold weather sets in, helps you to feel a little warmer, and puts a healthy glow in your cheeks.
With the trend of metallics on the runway this season, this bronzer is a fantastic addition to any collection, with its gold reflective pigment giving a metallic shimmer. (You can see it here, swatched on my (white and veiny) arm for maximum effect of the gold colour. I've swatched it very thickly, using my fingers, because I wanted to show the colour that can be achieved with it. Used in the traditional way, it's a very light coverage, and not muddy at all.) I'd also like to see it used as an eyeshadow, in a thicker concentration. The texture of the powder is so buttery soft, very similar to my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.
The powder itself is formulated with vitamins C and E to smooth and rejuvenate the skin, and Jojoba to soften and moisturise.It really is a wonder product.
Last of all, the packaging, which is so great! It's a huge compact, really glamorous in its styling. The mirror inside the lid is a fantastic size, and doesn't distort the reflected image at all. The sleek black design of the outer compact is very classy.
Natio products are Australian made, and not tested on animals.,
Available from Myer and David Jones, as well as selected pharmacies for $19.95, this one's definitely a must-have for your makeup collection.
Full Disclosure: Natio sent me this product for my consideration and review. It was sent free of charge. My opinions, of course, as always, are my own.
