    Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

    I love using this as my base foundation... The coverage level is great and my skin tends to get oiler throughout the day and this product does a great job handling it. I never feel heavy or caked on, never greasy, always fully covered and works well with the rest of my makeup. Plus the color is great and I never have a problem no matter the season or tan. Even when I try other brands for different products, I never stray from this in my routine.

    doesn't last.

    By iliana

    from Louisiana

    Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

    This foundation is a joke, it did nothing for my oily skin and it only last a few hours ( with properly prepped and primed skin ) However I like the texture and that is very versatile and I only use it for a stay at home makeup or when I'm gonna be out an hour or two.

      Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

      It leaves a really smooth finish. I really prefer the matte look and that it's oil free. My skin is very oily so this is perfect. It gives good coverage but it's not a thick coverage so I recommend this for an every day look and not a going out foundation. If you want thicker matte coverage I'd recommend the make up forever brand. I LOVE this foundation and will buy again.

                    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.
