          Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

          I bought this for days when I don't have time to do my normal makeup routine. I just wanted something to put on quickly and that evens my skin tone. I have oily skin (I use about 2 covergirl oil blotting sheets a day. Fill them up till they're translucent). This only stays "matte" on my skin for maybe 2 hours. After 4 or 5 hours it looks like my face is melting off. I would recommend for normal skin not oily skin.

            I was nervous about trying something new because I break out easy but this does not make me break out and helps me not be so oily by days end. Only draw back is it does not cover what my other foundations have covered but it is not as heavy either. My husband loves it and I will be buying it again.

              Clinique products are usually a good spend. I have used this one before and decided to go back to it. It does not irritate my skin as some foundations can, and provides pretty good coverage for my rosacea, when I add a bit of powder makeup to set it

                I love this foundation. Deborah at a Las Vegas store matched it to me when I got it for free as a platinum perk, but I think I may end up having to repurchase. It's lightweight and the perfect amount of coverage for me. Is very matte which is great for my oily skin. If you're looking for a full coverage foundation this isn't it, but I really love it. Just looks very good on my skin!
