              Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

              I had been looking on the market for a foundation for my oily skin, but my past purchases never quite lived up to their promises. I looked at this product and read into it, and I was sure it would full proof. First off, the foundation comes in a squeeze bottle which is great for traveling! It took a couple of times for the makeup consultant to color match me berceuse the foundation always came out too orange or too pink. It's almost impossible to apply this with a brush and the only successful way to apply was by a sponge (beauty blender preferably) the foundation always looked cakey and photographed horribly with awful white casts. It doesn't make your skin look natural by any means. Although it did control my oil better than any foundation I've ever used, like the description promises. If you're in a crisis for oil free skin when wearing your foundation, this is your go to, but cons come with the price of matte.

                  I love how this foundation lasts all day. My skim looks flawless after a long, busy day. I'm very fair skinned and I bought this in linen and it's a little too dark. I think it also oxidizes after about 10 minutes, even with a primer. It's the best foundation I've ever used, so I will purchase again.

                  Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

                  I normally use Clinique's full coverage beyond perfecting foundation which is very light weight but does not have that matte finish [i have combination skin oily and dry in certain areas] So I figured I'd give their matte finish foundation a try. The coverage isn't as full as I would like but it does give a superior flawless matte finish. Clinique also has a wide range of shades and very good for your skin too.

                  • Q:

                    I was interested in this foundation, but I don't have a local ULTA to test colors. I have light skin, with more of a yellow tone than pink. What shade would I be? I was afraid Alabaster was too pink but linen was too light.

                      Hi! Alabaster, Ivory and Neutral have yellow undertones. I am so sorry that you do not have an ULTA near you to test shades. We do have a great return policy if it isn't working for your skin tone.
                      We appreciate your interest and look forward to working with you in the near future!

                      Thank you for your interest in this product. All foundation formulas are unique, so the best way to find your perfect match is to visit the Ulta store nearest you that carries a full line of Clinique to be color matched. We offer complimentary color matching daily, and you can even try a sample at home if you prefer. If that is not convenient for you, I can suggest a possibility, but it will not be a guaranteed match without trying it on your skin. You may want to try Neutral or Honey to start. We look forward to working with you in the near future!
