I'm currently using the Stay Matte not Flat SMP02. I have pretty fair skin to begin with but I also have Vitiligo which is causing me to become even lighter. Is the SMP01PT7 Nude beige a lighter shade?

Asked by: AngieV
Hi Angie! Thank you for contacting NYX Professional! We are happy to hear of your interest in our Stay Matte But Not Flatt Powder Foundation. To answer your questions, SMP02, (Nude) is a light shade with golden undertones. The shade SMP01PT7 (Nude Beige) is a beige shade with neutral undertones. To find the best shade for your skin complexion, we recommend learning if your skin has warm (yellow), cool (pink) or neutral undertones. One trick is to look at the veins in your wrist, if they appear blue or purple, you have a cool undertone; if they appear green or olive, you have a warm undertone and if they’re a mix of both, you have a neutral undertone. Using the Undertones description of each shade will help you determine which will best suit your skin complexion, locate shades here http://tinyurl.com/yah7mcy6. We hope this helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guys, add to your kit! Amazing matte finish powder foundation that lasts! Leaves just enough sheen to look natural. I use it right after my tone correcting powder. A touch a bronzer, and finish with the Matte Finish Spray. Three minutes and done! A MUST FOR ANY GUY'S KIT!!! When it goes on sale, stock up!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Discontinued Dark Skin Tone shades This was the best makeup for my skin that I just discovered late 2019 only for it to be discontinued in my shade. Black women are the most under-represented in the makeup industry. It is shameful and saddening how we're constantly ignored and left out. You may have other products but all of your products should be available to everyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Discontinued darker shades? Hi, I've been using this as my primary foundation/ finishing powder for years. However as of late I haven't been able to find it ANYWHERE in shade "CHESTNUT". Has it been discontinued? Are you only selling the lighter shades now?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am SPM19...or I was. Now I can't find it I came to the website after not being able to find my unicorn- the perfect foundation shade- for a woman of color that blends perfectly with my skin, is lightweight, and produced by a responsible company. Makes me wonder why none of my local beauty supply stores could get my color, and now when I come online straight to the source- it's not available either. I am rating the product a 1 star solely because of your company's decision not to widely produce and supply shades of deep and dark colors for your diverse customer base. I was constantly complimented on the natural look of my makeup, and had become a loyal customer until your choice of who you market to for your product highlights that you may need to create an inclusion and diversity team for your makeup line. C'mon Nyx- Rihanna can't save the world in these makeup streets for women of color- keep doing your part too. It's why I came to your brand- I saw I was valued, until I wasn't anymore.
