        I am a convert to Silk Screen, big time. Until recently, I had been a loyal user of a powder in another (high end, natural) brand for a long time until I found this Origins product. I only wish I had found it sooner! I echo all of the other reviews I read: if you have oily, acne prone skin, the coverage, finish, and staying power of this powder is phenomenal. It's fantastic for oil control: once applied, it feels clean and weightless, like I don't have any makeup on. With other powders I had to touch up constantly, but this product requires significantly less touch ups throughout the day. It looks natural and does a great job of diminishing pores. For once, I feel so confident and natural wearing make up -- like it creates a better version of my skin without looking like a mask. One comment would be to come up with color descriptions for each shade if one is shopping online, as it's very difficult to tell which shade to order. There also doesn't seem to be a very good range of shades for different skin tones. I consulted the Live Chat and was given pretty good advice on the right shade to order based on another Origins foundation I use. Thank you, Origins for this product!

        I'd like to add my concern and regret others have mentioned regarding the discontinuation of several shades including the favorite "Cloud". My sister and I have been happy loyal Origins fans, too, since the 90's when we tried the original starter sets. But we've noticed that products ARE disappearing without notice and without suitable replacements. Are the causes: Economics? Marketing? Random changes? Even the Origins "Gone-but-not-Forgotten" option seems to be just another beauty product website. Origins, please advise customers when serious changes/discontinuations are coming; we DON'T necessarily like the new or different.

        Other powder make-up don't compare to Revitalizing Mineral M

        By 

        from Chicago, IL

        Comments about Origins Silk Screen™ Refining Powder Makeup:

        Please bring back Revitalizing Mineral Make-up! Loved the loose powder with the net for controlling the amount and the way to apply with a brush! I am not going to buy refining powder make-up again! It makes my face look like it has powder on it. Just not a natural look! Origins Revitalizing Mineral Make-up really differentiated itself from other lines on the market. Also think you should better market all you products... I don't think people know about Origins!

        I love the silk screen refining powder make up. However, I could not find Origins GinZig Revitalizing Mineral Makeup - 01 Light on this online. I like this product because it has some glow and ready for summer time! Bronze! Good balance on my skin! Where is this product "Origins GinZig Revitalizing Mineral Makeup"?

        Comments about Origins Silk Screen™ Refining Powder Makeup:

        I have used both silk screen and brighter by nature powder foundations, love the BBN, really missing it. The silk screen is ok, but leaves a powdered look on the face.

        Like many other's Bring back the Brighter by nature. They were the best of all times.
        Also missing the lipliner lipstick pencil Matte 05. Origins are great natural products. Love to have discontinued products back.

        Makes My Complexion Look Flawless

        By 

        from Mississippi

        Comments about Origins Silk Screen™ Refining Powder Makeup:

        This product is my go to everyday. I have used this powder as my foundation since 2003. After applying a primer, I buff this on using a kabuki brush or use a sponge for more coverage. I personally love that it doesn't have an spf because I'm generally very sensitive to them. This product has gotten me so many compliments because it gives me a flawless finish and I've never gotten that with a liquid foundation.

        Bring back Brighter By Nature!!

        By 

        from Los Angeles, CA

        Comments about Origins Silk Screen™ Refining Powder Makeup:

        I bought this as the suggested replacement for Brighter By Nature which is the ONLY powder foundation that I've ever used/loved. This powder doesn't even compare. First of all, none of the colors in this line match my skin tone. (There were multiple BBN colors that worked for me.) Second, this powder doesn't offer flawless coverage... it makes my skin look dry and you can now tell I'm wearing a powder foundation. I used to get so many compliments on how flawless my skin looked with BBN, I haven't received any compliments since switching to this new powder. A salesperson in one of the Origins locations said BBN would be returning this summer... Is that true?! I love Origins products but will not be buying this pressed powder again.

        First and foremost-Please bring back the mineral powder! This product has fair coverage, but the worst part is that you can see the powder on you face. Currently looking for a new all natural mineral powder.

        It's No Brighter By Nature

        By 

        from Denver, CO

        Comments about Origins Silk Screen™ Refining Powder Makeup:

        I started using this again after BBN was discontinued, and I'm so disappointed. I guess the color I use now that this is my only option is close enough, but BBN was just so much better. Silk Screen looks chalky, doesn't last as long, and doesn't have SPF. Why on earth doesn't Origins have a powder foundation with SPF?! Why was BBN discontinued, and when is a comparable replacement coming?? I'm so disappointed and frustrated every time I visit the site and Silk Screen is the only powder (All and Nothing doesn't count).

        BRING BACK BBN! This doesn't even have SPF in it.

        By 

        from New Jersey

        Comments about Origins Silk Screen™ Refining Powder Makeup:

        I agree with everyone below- bring back brighter by nature! I went to buy more today (I used to always get a few at a time) and found out it was discontinued. I searched for hours at the mall for a powder in my color with SPF and there is literally nothing comparable, especially in a more natural product. I'M SO UPSET. I also do not understand why you would discontinue BBN when clearly everyone loved it and you had a loyal customer base. If you don't come back out with BBN or basically the exact same powder with spf called whatever else I will no longer use any Origins products and right now I only use Origins.

        To Origins- please respond with why you discontinued BBN and are you re-releasing it? I am desperate I have no powder, and no, I do not want this silk screen without SPF and the colors are horrible for me.

        Not like brighter by nature at all!!!

        from Bay Area

        Comments about Origins Silk Screen™ Refining Powder Makeup:

        I have been struggling to find my perfect shade for months now after BBN was discontinued. I have spent so much money trying different brands. If anyone knows a brand that has similar shades please leave a review and let us know!

        I want to know why BBN was discontinued and when it will be back!!! I have stopped buying all origins products after the sales lady tried to convrince me to purchase this sheer powder saying that it's wxactly like brighter by nature! It is not anything like BBN! Your sales people need to stop lying!
