Can this be used over the no drop foundation as a powder, or would this be used as just a foundation? I have horribly oily skin so I prefer a matte look.

which color would be the lightest/ fairest?  When looking at the colors they are not really in order.  Porcelain looks light but creamy natural looks lighter from the pics. Which is it or is there another, even lighter? 

Asked by: SmilingKitten
Hi there! The lightest shades are Creamy Natural, Ivory, and Porcelain, all three are for porcelain skin tones. You would want to pick the shade that best matches your undertones: cool (Porcelain) or warm (Creamy Natural, Ivory).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What happened!!!!! Yall gotta bring this back. Sienna is my fav. I can't find it anywhere and its a must have.
Date published: 2020-01-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Former fan now hurt beyond measure. The matte not flat powder foundation in chestnut is the only foundation I have ever used in my 31 yrs of life. For two months I have been walking around looking like a loser because I can't find it anywhere now I find out it's discontinued. My anxiety is peaked I am sad, depressed, and upset. I do not know what I will do moving forward. I cannot afford to test multiple products and colors, nor do I have the proper knowledge or support to do so. This foundation was such a blessing and I am literally crushed to hear it's discontinued. Like I can't express how upset, hurt, and distressed I feel. I literally have nothing for my face now. Im completely crushed. So unfair. If I had any warning I would've bought dozens. Now I'm stuck looking like an ugly duck. Not joking this is not funny...I will not buy nyx anymore. There's not even another shade and or powder that is similar. I could go on for days I'm sooooo upset! I have solely bought nyx since I started wearing makeup, customer service means everything to me so it's time to move on I suppose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed a “best seller” is now disccontinued! I don’t understand how a top selling product has been narrowed down to only three available shades. I’ve used this powder for a couple of years and now have to find another product to replace it, which will likely break out my skin. The alternative NYX “can’t stop won’t stop” isn’t a great color match and is not a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did you discontinue Stay Matte But Not Flat?!! I am so disappointed that you have discontinued this product! Finally there was a powder that matched my skin tone and did not make look like Halloween! Why??? I just ordered several shades of the Can’t stop won’t Stop powder and none of them match.... guess I will have to start searching for other makeup companies.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goodbye friend! I've loved this foundation for many years and repurchase regularly. Looks natural, lasts well and does a good job for light coverage. My only gripe is that you hit pan after about a week... thankfully it was inexpensive enough I could afford to repurchase every few weeks. Unfortunately I've just had an email reply to confirm that it has been discontinued. I have no idea why 14 days ago NYX replied to a below comment saying it is not discontinued - when it's been largely out of stock for months and they've emailed me directly to say its discontinued. Such a shame to see it go, the can't stop won't stop is not as good and there isn't really anything similar at this price point on the market.
