    Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

    Absolutely love this foundation. I've been using it for years. I have very oily skin and large pores. My skin is also very uneven without makeup and I have have dark circles under my eyes. This makeup corrects all of that and I often gets compliments on my skin. I apply with my fingers and/or a sponge. It lasts all day long and never feels heavy or cakey, but it still covers well enough to hide my imperfections. I highly recommend this to anyone with oily skin!

      Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

      I had run out of my normal foundation and was in a fix. I ran into Ulta and grabbed this because I trust Clinique and, honestly, it was right up front. I'm so glad I found this! It's not too pricey - especially for what you get.
      I tend to have oily skin. I apply a gel moisturizer in my T-zone before applying my foundation. I haven't tried it without the moisturizer, but, oh my goodness, between the two... It lasts all day! I wore it for eighteen hours yesterday and it looked natural and not cakey the whole time. No shine whatsoever.
      However, if you have any dryness, it will grab onto that and make it super noticable, so you have to be sure you moisturize really well. And, although it still looks great, by the end of the day, you can start to feel it sitting on your skin.
      I loved this though and would absolutely recommend it!

        This lasted all day, I mean from 5pm-11am the next day. I have oily skin and not once did I have to touch up. It stayed matte all night long and morning. Did not break out like with other cheaper products. Well worth the price. No visible pores! Does not rub off. Very light weight and you do not need to use an excessive amount, actually I've never used such a small amount before. This is definitely a miraculous product! Dedicated customer for sure! :)

After a few hours of wear the foundation caked and separated due to my oily skin so I am hoping that the Stay Matte foundation will be a better option for me.

I suggest the Creamwhip shade in this formula, as it should be similar in shade and undertone. If you enjoy using tools to apply your foundation, you may want to try Clinique's Buff Brush or Clinique's Foundation Brush to apply and blend your product. Have a wonderful day!

I want to switch to the stay matte oil free foundation, what color is closest (if not, a tad bit lighter) than buttermilk? I like the coverage provided by the beyond perfecting foundation but I think my skin is too oily, will the stay matte oil free foundation provide the same amount of coverage?

                      A:

                      Hi! Ivory should provide the same undertone in a similar shade range. Stay Matte foundation is a nice foundation for absorbing oil and keeping the skin looking matte and fresh all day long. It is a moderate coverage, which means you will need to build the foundation in order to get the coverage you can quickly receive with Beyond Perfecting Foundation. I would suggest possibly using Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer as a concealer in areas that you need more coverage only. Then you can apply Stay Matte Oil Free Makeup all over to get the oil control you are looking to achieve. Thank you for your question!
