          I went into Ulta with my heart set on buying another foundation from another Brand. The lovely gal matched with the other brand and then this one. Needless to say this one won. And it fit my budget better than the other one. Gives me the coverage I want and lasts. I do have to build it a little more on my cheeks and nose but a little does go a long way! I will never seek another foundation.

              from California

              Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

              I am extremely picky when it comes to foundation and I absolutely love this stuff! It has a light to medium, buildable coverage. The formula is lightweight yet mattifying. I've never found a foundation with a consistency like this. It is creamy, but lightweight like gel formulas, and a slight silicone feel which allows for an easy, smooth coverage. Great for oily/combination skin, even during hot California summers!

                  Sure! Clinique's Stay Matte Pressed Powder is a perfect partner! It can be used as a touch up during the day. You may also want to try using Clinique's Blended Face Powder immediately after applying your foundation to set your makeup.

                  Hi! Ivory is actually the same undertone that you are currently using. If Alabaster is the right undertone, that is what I would suggest that try next.
