Natio has long been one of my favourite Australian brands, so today I like to share a few favourites with you.. 

First up is the Natio Cream to Powder Foundation, which is enriched with argan, jojoba, vitamin E, beeswax and bamboo stem extract to care and condition the skin, and as promised it is easy to apply evenly, and can be built up to a good full coverage, while still looking natural and not caked on, and still feels nice and light on the skin. It easily covers all redness, pigmentation and uneven skin tone, and surprisingly manages to stay put and looking matte all day on my combination skin, and without the need to apply powder on top. It comes in a stylish black compact with a mirror inside the lid, as well as sponge, so you can apply on the go if needed. At a very reasonable $19.95, it is easy to see why this foundation has just won the award for the 'Best Make-Up Product (Steal)' for 2016 in the Australian Prix de Marie Claire Awards - It is a really lovely foundation and I can see myself purchasing it again. My only negative about this foundation is that it is only available in three shades, Light, Light Honey and Medium - I've normally got a medium beige skin tone, and tried the middle shade, Light Honey, which sadly is a tad on the dark side for me, so in other words, if I need to use the lightest shade, then those with a very pale skin tone would find difficult to find a match! 

The Naturally You Eyeshadow Palette in Bloom. This palette features 12 beautiful earthy toned shades ranging from a nude, through to pale pink, dusty rosy, plum, browns, mochas, copper and deep chocolate. In short, anything you'd need to create anything from a simply everyday look, through to a more elaborate earthy smoky eye. And personally I find this selection perfect, as it contains jus the shades I need, so I will get full use of every single shade in the compact.

The shadows range between shimmery satin and matte textures, and are all quite pigmented, so you can quite easily build up the colours to be quite intense, as well as they are all fairly long wearing, although the darker colours seem to be both more intense both with pigments as well as longevity.

The palette comes in a sturdy clear compact, that is simple, yet stunning, and it comes with a double-ended sponge and brush applicator. It doesn't have a mirror, but I honestly don't mind as I never apply eyeshadow on the go anyway.

Next up is the Natio Moisturising Lip Gloss in the shade Magical, which is a gorgeous dusty rose shade wit a nice sheen, perfect for everyday use. The actual lip gloss is infused with jojoba, shea and vitamin E to ensure that lips are kept moisturised and smooth, and to prevent premature ageing. And it does feel so lovely and soft on the lips without being sticky or tacky. Being a lip gloss it naturally doesn't have the longest of wear, but it does stay put for a few hours (or less if you eat or drink), but that is quite reasonable too. And even when it has worn off, your lips remain soft as if you've just applied a nourishing lip balm. It comes in a clear tube with a pointed foot-doe applicator that makes it super easy to apply, and it has a lovely sweet vanilla scent. 

The Natio Nail Colour in in Natural is pale beige, shade that is the perfect nude shade for an understated look, the sort of shade that I wear most often on my nails, especially during summer as it simply looks stunning on tanned hands. The nail polish features a large flat brush that makes it quick to apply evenly and streak-free in just a few strokes, and it dries very quickly too. As with most pale nail polishes, you do require two coats, but then you also get a wear of 4-5 days before it starts to chip at the edges, although you can of course extend with the use of a base and top coat. I also love that the Natio nail polishes are 3-free and hence free from the harsh chemicals such as Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP.

So there you go, some great from Natio, all of which are absolutely stunningly beautiful products and worth a try, and I know I'll be reaching for these in the coming months, and certainly wouldn't mind getting hold of a few more shades of lip glosses and nail colours!
