Aubrey Silken Earth Translucent Base Porcelain -- 21 g
Good as a Finishing Powder but Requires Some Work
I use this powder as a finishing powder over a liquid foundation or a tinted moisturizer. This powder is not really long lasting, it is a little drying, and oxidizes just a tad to a bit darker shade (but nothing major). I would say that this powder is approximately NW10 when you first apply it but then becomes NW15 (on the MAC scale). This powder is VERY matte, so I mixed it with some other illuminating powder (and then I realized that there is an Aubrey illuminating powder as well, I should have mixed with that) as I like more luminous finish. The powder is very sheer, I wouldn't call it a base at all. Regardless of all the troubles I am trying to use more natural products that is why I will buy this powder again as I trust Aubrey and their ingredients.

Love that this organic, goes on really nicely. As I have oily skin, I usually have to reapply before the end of the day, but not a big deal.

The perfect all-natural powder!
I wanted to try an all-natural alternative to commercial facial powders, and I'm so glad I chose Aubrey Organics! It goes on easily, looks super natural, banishes shine, seems to stay on all day, and it even smells great--like cinnamon! I will definitely be buying again.

I have tried a lot of stuff for use as a good foundation, I prefer a powder so I gave this a try. Really does not give enough coverage for me. I always go back to my revlon photoready powder.

Translucent is accurate description
I have a very fair complexion with a slight olive tone. This color works well for me. It goes on smoothly after light moisturizing. A light dusting is all I need otherwise, I look too pale. Recommend a blush to add more color.
