      Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

      This is my new go-to holy grail foundation for when I want a flawless and long-lasting look. I use Clinique's acne and wrinkle reducing serum on freshly washed skin, followed by Clinique's gel moisturizer, Rimmel's stay matte primer, and then this foundation. I have never used a foundation that perfects my skin like this one does and that lasts all day without getting oily. I have very oily skin, and I typically have to blot with a blotting sheet at least a few times a day. This foundation stays on and does not require me to blot. My powder, blush, bronzer, and highlight go on smoothly on top of this foundation and blend in very nicely as well. Definitely give this a try if you have oily skin and like more of a full coverage foundation look!

        I've been a Laura Mercier fan forever and my store was out of my Laura foundation color. I stopped into Ulta for hairspray and decided to see if there was a comparable Clinique product. The aesthetician recommended this Clinique product and I LOVE it!

          Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

          This foundation is so nice!! It blends so easily and you can build it up to a fuller coverage. It lasts throughout the day as long as you a good primer and powder! I will say I find the best way to apply is to dab using the tube directly on my face into dots and blend from there. I just get the best coverage that way. Also I am a little unsure of the descriptions of the shades. I have the color "Ivory" which matches me to perfection. However, the description is "very fair" - there's no way that color is "very fair". It's definitely in that light/medium category. Also odd it's called "Ivory" because it's not a typical Ivory either. Oh well, just my rant it could be hard to find a color unless you go in store!

              The color and matte finish is what I best like about this product. It is light too. I recently purchased & tried for the first time at a store and really like the coverage it provides for a natural look. Ended up buying more online. Wish Clinique or Ulta would give coupons on these products.

                But this one I love and it is light and matte so my forehead doesn't look greasy after application.

                    When I first used this product, I was a little skeptical because it was a little streaky, but it wasn't too streaky. The matte finish covered all of my acne and acne scars and stayed on all day! My skin is dry in the morning and oily in the afternoon and it did not budge nor smear. If you have sensitive or acne prone/combo skin, this foundation is magic!!

                          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!

                          If you do not have an Ulta nearby, or this is not convenient for you, please try to best describe your skin tone as well as your natural undertones and I will do my best to help. If you have worn a Clinique foundation in the past and know the shade, this is also very helpful.

                          Hi! I am so happy to hear that! Thank you for your loyalty to Clinique! I suggest trying Golden Neutral in the Stay Matte formula as well. It should be a similar shade and the same undertone for your skin.
