Matte-Nificent Oil Absorbing Powder
Colors are way off
I agree with the reviews below. I liked it when I bought it before but now the color makes me look like I've put an orangey self tanner on, only on my face. It is not a light color like it's supposed to be. Way off, for my skin tone. I too, had to go to the drugstore to get better matching powder. These powders are only for those with orangey, olive-toned complexion, even the 'lightest.'

ALL shades are for yellow undertones
Mark. oil-absorbing powder has been my life saver for years, especially in the summer. It is light-weight, doesn’t clog my pores and cause break-outs, and helped keep the sebum & shine under control. HOWEVER, ever since mark. has ‘updated’ its shades, I have been forced to go back to the drugstore for my powder. I am VERY fair-skinned with a ROSEY undertone. ALL of the new mark. shades now have a YELLOW even ORANGEY undertone to them. And even the ‘lightest’ shade is way too dark for my skin. I have tried both the ‘light’ shade (which was recommended per the mark. chart when comparing your old shade to what you should get in the new shade selection), and had to go back to try the ‘very light’. Both were too dark and made me look like I was wearing an orange/yellowish mask on my face. If you have golden undertones to your skin, have at it. If you have any shade of skin that has a pink undertone, NONE of these new mark. shades will work for you.

For years I have worn this powder... when they switched over to the new colors they are way too dark. The Very Light has an orange tint to it and it is dark. I am sadly disappointed in the new colors because this product is AMAZING.
