      I use it daily, and I noticed the difference right away in my skin and overall appearance when I use the clinique vs. an alter when I ran out of the clinique. Other people notice too and it minimizes the fine lines.

      After Urban Decay discontinued their powdered foundation I had to find another and so glad I came across this! Way more skin like and the color matches me even better than UD. I use it alone or over top concealer. Keeps me pretty matte all day.

                This used to be the only foundation I needed. I am very pleased with the coverage! It's lightweight. I am a little sad to say it doesn't last as long as I would like it to, but for the coverage and how nicely it matches my skin tone, it's a staple in my make up bag. I've only stopped using it, recently, because I've needed more coverage due to breakouts. However, once my breakouts are gone, I will go back to using this.

                        Hi! Thanks for your question. The finish is a bit different between these two items. Stay Matte offers a flat, matte finish on the skin. Almost Powder Makeup offers more of a natural finish that is much less matte on the skin. They both offer a sheer to moderate coverage and are wonderful pressed powder options. Thank you for your interest in Clinique and have a great week!

                    • Q:

                      I am using even better foundation in the linen shade and I love it, I feel that shade matches well. However throughout the day I noticed my skin was very oily and I rarely have time to address my looks at work (I'm a nurse). I began using superpowder double face makeup in matte ivory and noticed the undertone is much too pink for my face. It also looks terrible if my skin is dry anywhere as it flakes off.

                      I'm wondering if this would be a better fit for me in terms of a buildable foundation that will last throughout a 12 hour day. I'm also wondering which color would match best if the linen shade of even better works for me.

                      Thank you!

                        Hi! Neutral Fair may be a nice shade for you in this formula. In order to guarantee that it lays on the skin well, I suggest using Clarifying Lotion twice a day. It is a liquid exfoliating agent. You could also try using a manual exfoliating agent such as Cliniques 7 day scrub. If it is convenient for you, you may want to try some of these products in store. We offer free color matching and complimentary sampling each day at all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product. Thank you for for your question and your interest in Clinique.
