        Love how it keeps me matte. I am very oily so I'm combination with changing my skincare routine and foundation I have really loved this foundation! It matches my skin perfectly! I wish it had a pump so I wouldn't over use product and I wish It had more product. Like an extra ounce or so. But it is on the cheaper side.

                      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.

                      I use Linen in the Even Better formula. But I would like more of a matte finish than the EB gives and would like to try this. What shade should I use?

                        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!
