    Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

    I sometimes have oily skin and sometimes it's dry and this is the only foundation I have found that works for both situations. It feels light and doesn't make me break out but is full coverage. It lasts a long time too. There is also a great selection of colors/tones so that I can always find a perfect match! It's worth every penny.

          Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

          This is an excellent foundation if you are looking for a something nice and affordable. Especially if you have sensitive skin, or issues finding a shade that matches your skin tone. Since, I'm Indian some shades are either too light for me or too dark, but Clinique foundation actually matches my skin color. It's really lightweight and buildable coverage. I don't use too much, cause I don't need to and overdoing it will result in it looking cakey. Even though it dries as matte, it's not completely flat. If you touch your face after applying it some can transfer to your fingers. So set with little bit of powder afterwards. I have combination skin so I don't feel the need to set it with a powder. Also, I live in Texas where it's really hot and this is one foundation that does not start dripping and coming off my skin. It gives u a natural look to be yourself even after applying foundation.

            Perfect foundation for the Texas heat. It is it heavy on the skin.

                  I wear Even Better in Honey with Stay Matte power in Stay Golden to finish. As I get older I wonder if I should get more coverage in my foundation? Which foundation would you recommend? Pros/cons of both? I've been using even better for years.

                    A:

                    Hi! This is a long wearing foundation, and is best suited for oily skin, as it offers a matte finish. All Clinique foundations should look natural on the skin as long as you exfoliate beforehand. Removal of the dead skin before applying foundation will guarantee you are working with a smooth canvas. If you would like to try a few of Clinique's foundations, we would love to work with you in person. We offer free color matching and sampling each day in stores that carry a full line of Clinique products. We look forward to working with you! Thank you and have a great week!
