          I've used this product for years. When I was younger, I just applied it directly to my face. Now, I apply it lightly over my liquid Clinique foundation. The shine is well controlled. The pressed powder glides on smoothly and plays nicely with other products. It provides a matt, natural-looking finish. The coverage it light to medium. There is a decent shade range. It's easy to remove with a make up wipe or cotton pad and micellar water.

                  I use this product to set foundation/cc cream. I love that it comes in an invisible matte option as my foundation and cc cream colors are slightly different so I can use this with both. I do have very oily skin though so I do have to touch up every afternoon as I get shiny. However, it tends to stay on and does block out shine for several hours.

                      My go to powder!! It gives great full coverage for me & doesn't cause breakouts. I do have to reapply every 4 hours or so when i notice the myself getting a little oily but then I'm good for another 4 hours (not horrible). Only complaint I have is that I've been a repeat buyer of this powder & over time this powder cracks quite easily when you're getting slightly to the end of it and then you're left with unusable messy crumbles. It's on the pricey but still the best coverage and lasting powder that doesn't make me break out hat I could find. I have fair skin with pinkish undertones & number #18 is my perfect match.

                        • Q:

                          I have a medium, neutral beige skin tone. If I just want a light sweep of this powder to set my foundation, but not alter the shade, would "Invisible Matte" work as a translucent powder? Or is it made to cater to very light skin tones? If this shade wouldn't work for me, which one should I get?

                            Hi! Stay Matte gives a bit more coverage and color correcting. Translucent is a bit more sheer on the skin. If you have fair skin, Stay Buff may be a nice shade option for you. It is a great product for touch ups.

                          I recently purchased the color 18 stay cream, but is this product useful for setting foundation and concealer? I have a golden olive skin tone, but I'm not tan. Thank you!

                            Hi! You are absolutely correct in how to use this product! This is a perfect powder to use as a touch up during the day. You can also use this product after foundation application if you prefer to use a compact versus using a loose transparency powder. If you do prefer a loose powder, you may want to try Clinique's Blended Face Powder. Thank you for your question and have a great week.
