Finishing powder for African American woman, medium-dark skin

I'm wondering what to use. Right now I use MAC translucent, but it looks a bit white on my skin. What would suggest that Sephora carries? I also have oily skin.

I use Make Up For Ever HD powder and I love it! Goes on completely translucent, no white cast at all. And I have medium-dark, oily skin too.

Becca Cosmetics carry a good range of face powders and Mally Beauty makes a setting gel called Evercolor Poreless Face Defender that you press on your face that sets makeup and mattifies. You can find Becca at Sephora and Mally at Ulta.

Try Ben Nye Banana Powder, it is apparently great for women with darker skin tones though you cannot get it at sephora. 

 

Smashbox HALO powders have a wider color range as well. 

 

I love NARS pressed powders as well, Cover FX has a few darker finishing powders though I cannot vouch for these.
