    Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

    I love this makeup more than anything I've tried and I keep coming back to it. I worked in a beauty store for years so I've tried a lot of foundations but this is my go-to. This is the only foundation that keeps my super oily skin at ease through a long day. The coverage is buildable but overall light so you are still able to see your skin underneath which is what I like. I'm about to order my 6th bottle of this makeup so it's safe to say I'm hooked! If they ever discontinue this product I would be lost

        It kept me matte for over 12 hours with my Becca primer and Mac setting spray. Only thing is it was way too red so I won't finish it or repurchasing it

        Wonderful!

        By Mariah

        from Hattiesburg

        Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

        I have always had oily skin which gets worse as the day goes on. Regular mirror checks to blot oily spots have always been a problem for me no matter what foundation I wore, but this foundation is completely different. This foundation absorbs the oil in your skin. It's medium coverage for a natural look and makes my skin feel light and free instead of heavy and oily. I have been using it for a few months and absolutely love this product! I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

        Comments about Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup:

        i have combination skin, and this foundation works really well for me! It lasts me the whole school day (8 hours) which is pretty rare during the spring/summer season. i'm not a huge fan of the bottle type, but the product is amazing so it's worth it.

            Easily one of the most underrated foundations imo. Color match was great, and it is very, very lightweight. Blends beautifully. Not sure it's the most long-lasting though, but I usually wear with a powder and it stays just fine. Love it!

              • Q:

                I went into an Ulta store and looked at this foundation, but I didn't open them to try. The shade linen looked darker than alabaster. Is alabaster actually lighter than linen? I use the shade breeze in the superbalanced foundation and am trying to find the closest thing to it. I live in a very hot climate and this looked perfect. Also, are one of these two shades about the same as breeze or are they darker? I am very pale. Thanks
