Spanish term or phrase: Piel matizada
...para pieles grasas, con exceso de brillos o que presenten poros dilatados. El resultado será una piel equilibrada, matizada, limpia, libre de imperfecciones y más joven.

The dictionary gives me 'nuanced', but I've never heard of nuanced skin. Being prone to oily/combination skin myself and knowing all the vocab associated with this, I'm inclined to think it's 'matte', but I haven't seen this as a translation for matizada and obviously I need to be 100% sure. Thanks :)

Avocado when combined with honey or egg white can reduce excess oils and clear skin pores, resulting in flawless and smooth skin.

Oily skin appears greasy, and sometimes embarrasses when spending time in a group.... However, if you take proper care regularly, you can enjoy smooth and flawless skin.

nuanced skin


Explanation:
Literally. I used to translate for a big cosmetics firm and they are not averse to nonsense like this in their labelling puffs.

agree  Robert Carter: I think you're right, Neil. "Nuanced" in cosmetics seems to refer to skin not being one homogeneous tone or shade. I suppose something that takes this into account makes it look less "maquillada".

  -> It's quite a common term in cosmetics. I worked for one such client for a few years until the boss started sending the work to a friend of his in Madrid...

a matte-finish


Explanation:
You would usually use "matte" to describe the type of finish. Here is an example from Sephora:

An oil-free skin tint to perfect with medium, buildable coverage and a soft-matte finish.
