My first video and a review on Naturactor Products

Way before Naturactor became a big sensation due to fact that celebrities love it and always raving on IG, twitter, etc.. it already caught my attention. Thanks to my big ears, I overheard a local celebrity years ago share the foundation she was wearing to a sales specialist of another makeup brand. And by golly, she looked beautiful and flawless with her Naturactor base though her intention that time was to get a better foundation for her oily skin. (it was perfect already) That made me decide I need to try Naturactor but it was way overpriced and the source was limited. It took a long while before I got to try Naturactor.

I got the Naturactor products from the store of my trusted seller friend Digital Traincase. It's better to see the product in person instead of buying online, the more if you are not familiar with the shades so that you can try the testers to find the right shade for you. :)   I was able to do a complete face with the testers #140 which is my shade (later realized it’s a little dark), loose powder and the powder foundation. Eeekk..I love the way it looked. And thus leaving the place holding 4 Naturactor items, the Cover Face #130 and #140 (I need a smidge of #130), the silky lucent powder #41 and the pressed powder foundation #230.

And for those who wanna see how I use the naturactor products to create a day look.. please watch this video:

Congrats to very first video. lol

Naturactor Cover Face Concealer/Foundation 

The Cover Face Concealer/Foundation is highly pigmented that you only need a small amount to cover an entire face. Note that if applied heavily, it will result to cakey/mask-type appearance (hehe). I believe this is suitable for theatre performers in need of heavy coverage makeup but don’t worry this can be worn for normal days also when just wanting to look flawless, again..only tiny amount needed! Product can last the whole day but make sure to set it with powder.

#130 - lightest shade. Lighter – NC15
#140 – 2nd to the lightest shade. NC20 – NC25

 I inquired from a seller (not Digital Traincase, back when they still didn’t carry Naturactor) that #130 is suited for fair skinned girls with pink undertones and #140 is for fair skinned girls with yellow undertones. In my observation, #140 looks pink on me (just a wee bit). I have warm complexion and you can see the slight difference between the neck and face after some time. One reason maybe is it’s a little dark on me thus the noticeable difference. When mixed with #130, no obvious pinkness (lol!). I can use this as foundation for normal days (when in the mood) but most of the time, as undereye concealer as long as I put yellow shade powder on top of it. Not to worry oily skinned gals, POWDER POWDER POWDER and you're good. Dewy effect (after a few hours of wearing) still looks wonderful.

Naturactor Silky Lucent Powder (Loose Powder) 

The Silky Lucent Powder comes in 3 shades. I got #41 because it’s the yellow one. If you are familiar with Ben Nye’s banana powder, this is a lighter shade of yellow. Again according from the seller (who I doubted for her answers) that if you use cover face #130, you should get the silky lucent #31 (pink undertones) because silky lucent #41 will be dark. In my observation, Silky lucent powder is a translucent loose powder that will not give any colour. #41 can be worn even by the fairest with yellow undertone. Silky lucent #31 is a light pink shade which is a normal shade seen on loose powders. I’m not sure of #51 though as I haven’t tested the shade. I like my loose powder yellow so I love #41. It also counteracts the pinkness of my Cover Face foundation. Not a fan of the “heavily scented” makeup though. If you can bear the smell, this is a great powder for setting the makeup and the staying power.

Naturactor Pressed Powder Foundation 

 I got this product because when I tried this together with the other Naturactor products at the Digital Traincase store, I love the whole finish. I don’t love this as much as the other Naturactor products but it’s still a good pressed powder. Not powdery and will not cake if applied heavily. I got the pressed powder in #230 (lightest shade) and find it better for pink undertones. I’m still able to use this though as it gives a light coverage that the hint of pink is barely noticeable. This will just give a natural effect (again not powdery). I find this more of a sheer pressed powder rather than a pressed foundation. Not for medium-heavy coverage.

Overall, the must have product from Naturactor is still the cover face. It covers well hiding imperfections.  And because of the good result on me, it took away my fear of using cream foundation for my oily skin. I'm now trying other cream foundations for more base options.
Will get back to you when I find a product better or on par to the cover face. :)

What's your favorite? :)
