Clinique Stay- Matte Pressed Powder

When it comes to make up, an oil controlling powder is my most essential product. As someone with oily skin, I never leave the house without it and rely on it throughout the day to keep my skin looking balanced and shine free. I have been looking for a more affordable alternative to my beloved Chanel powder as it's pretty pricey for everyday use, plus I seem to go through powder so quickly. I adore Clinique make up, their products do so much for troublesome skin, so I decided to try the brands best selling powder.

The Clinque Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder (£23) is an oil free powder that helps to remove excess oil and shine, leaving the complexion looking beautifully matte and fresh. I chose the shade Stay Buff, which is a perfect match for my skin as I don't see much colour from it once applied. I use the sponge that comes with the compact to gently press the powder onto the oilier areas of my face, then a fluffy powder brush everywhere else to set my make up. Like all Clinique products, it's fragrance free so it doesn't clog my pores or cause any irritation to my skin.

This powder gives a very flawless, matte and perfected finish to my make up. It doesn't leave a powdery finish like most powders, it's so light and makes my complexion look lovely and natural. I am so impressed with this powders ability to control oil and shine, it works like a dream to keep my skin looking matte and I don't have to touch up as often when I'm wearing this. When I do, it doesn't look cakey or heavy, it just leaves my skin looking and feeling wonderfully fresh and comfortable. Clinique make up never seems to disappoint, I'm so happy I purchased this!

Have you tried this powder?


  1. I haven't tried this but I've had my eyes on it. I'm really enjoying Clinique products recently and have added several things from the makeup range into my collection. I'm impressed so hopefully this won't disappoint.

  2. Wow, this seems to be a very good product! I was thinking about trying the Benefit Hello Flawless powder, but maybe I should go for the this one instead!

  3. I used to use this clinique powder all the time until i dropped and broke it twice! but it did a great job none the less :)
