Rated 1 out of 5Â by mburnettt SOOO disappointed re: "Cloud" shade
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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DallasLove Beautiful powder, terrible shade choices!
I am so torn on writing this review. I discovered Origins a little over a year ago in an attempt to eliminate all chemicals from my life. I went organic with my diet, household cleaners and detergents, and all beauty products. I fell in love with Origins through this powder. I am a very fair skinned lady and I originally used the now discontinued Cloud shade. The powder is feather-lite and goes on so smoothly. It appears to âmeltâ into the skin instead of sitting in a caked on looking layer on top of the face. Yet, it does not clog pores. I told all my friends and family about Silk Screen, saying I would never return to my old mineral make up. Unfortunately, the shade choices have been compromised and unless you are able to fit in the small selection of choices available, it will be hard to love this product (no matter how hard you try). I have tried almost every shade possible and nothing fits me. It makes me so sad I will have to switch back to my old messy and time consuming powder foundation. But what good is a flawless powder when instead of giving a healthy glow, the color gives a flushed red face look as if Iâve been out drinking all night? Itâs not at all flattering. Origins please bring back Cloud to all your adoring fans!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by SlikScreenFiend Where are the colors!?!?!
I have been a loyal silk screen user for years. My color or choice is/was warm honey. The shade matched my skin perfectly and provided the right amount of coverage for a natural yet finished look. Now Origins has decided to discontinue all of the old colors and offer very few alternatives, none of which match the color I used. There are also very few options in the brighter by nature line of pressed powder foundation, which is not for oily skin. I can't understand why Origins would decide to overhaul its entire line of colors in favor of a "one size fits all" selection. Most people don't fit into a light,/medium/deep spectrum. What about your loyal customers? I really hope that Origins will introduce new comparable colors in the variety that used to exist, or I will have to find another brand. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MissPatty Best customer service ever!!
I always order this powder online because it is the best powder out there for acne prone skin. I made an order and it was delivered quickly as usual. As soon as it arrived, I left it in the box on my dresser since I still had some powder left... A few days went by and around 2:30am, my house caught on fire. I rushed out of my house just before the floor collapsed. We lost everything including that unopened box from Origins. I decided to contact Origins through live chat and I spoke to Marina. I explained what had happened and was hoping to maybe receive a small discount on my next purchase even though I thought it would be impossible. They decided to send me a brand new powder along with a bunch of samples and they expedited the shipping at NO COST! I cant thank them enough! They touched my heart. I will be a Origins girl forever!
