I have tried few foundations and my favourite is the Clinique Stay-Matte foundation. I have a yellow undertone, so its one of the best foundation that has a matching shade for my skin. It gives the color and glow. I get good coverage and no breakouts at all. I have recommended this foundation to my friends. However, its a bit expensive.
I have been using this foundation for a few years and still love it. It is light weight and keeps my oily skin under control. I like that I don't have to use much to get really good coverage. It blends together well when I am in between seasons and need to make my own colour :)
I used this foundation for a couple years before finally deciding that it just wasn't working for me and I really need to start looking for a change. While this foundation had great coverage, it didn't help with my oily skin problem and actually oxidized throughout the day, making me look orange.
This foundation leaves your skin feeling light, unlike other foundations that feel like you are wearing a mask.
It works great at covering most imperfections, although if you put more, it leaves your skin too matte. It shows that you are wearing foundation.
Also, after a few weeks of using it every day, I started having breakouts every time I used it. I think it is irritating when used regularly.
I got the colour that's one shade darker than my actual skin, and it was amazing ! It really added a tanned glow to my face and I got so many compliments from it :) Amazing product !!
I like this because I have oily skin and it keeps it from looking shiny and has a light weight feel so I don't even notice it is on.
This is the only product that I have found works well with my type of skin which is oily. It is not perfect, but so far this is the best oil control makeup that I have found.
CLINIQUE STAY MATTE FOUNDATION;
I was disappointed with this foundation.
Very thick foundation, very cake like.
Definitely not a summer / hot weather foundation.
Hardens really fast as well, becomes clump like very fast.
The foundation color also does not blend in well.
Must wear other illuminators and powders on top of the foundation to blend in well and color / tone correct.
Not worth the price paid, not worth the product.
I really like this foundation! it definitely kept me matte for a good 8 hours which is impressive to me because most matte-claiming foundations last about 3 hours on me before i start looking like an oil bomb in my t-zone. the squeeze tube looks a bit small, but it lasts! the only problem i had with this foundation is that i couldnt find my perfect shade. the two shades that my skin tone fell between were a bit more on the "pink undertone" side and ive got a yellow/olive undertone. other than that, i would definitely recommend this product :)
*** Hope Clinique comes out with a foundation thats suited for yellow undertones in a similar formula!
