                Took me a while to find a foundation that fit my skin tone, had full coverage, less oily and didn't irritate my skin. So glad I walked into Ulta and allowed this beautiful woman to assist me in finding what works best for me. Next trip, I'm definitely buying more than 1.

                  Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

                  Best foundation I've found so far. I've tried high end brands, Mac, and many drugstore brands. My combination skin usually makes any foundation shine at the end of the day but this foundation stays on all day long and looks like I just applied it at night when I go to take it off. It can be lightweight but easily buildable to full coverage that hides my acne scars and redness. Also doesn't break me out like most do. LOVE THIS

                        Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

                        I really like this matte foundation. It gives a light and natural look which is great for the office. I have oily skin and this definitely helps keep the shine in check. I don't really have acne or scars to hide so this works well for me but I can tell that if were trying to hide that then this foundation might be too lightweight for that.

                              Hi! Ivory should also be a nice option for you in this formula. The Clinique Buff Brush or Clinique Foundation Brush are nice tools to use for blending any foundation on the skin. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful week!
