Clinique Stay-Matte Oil Free Makeup

I've mentioned this foundation a few times in several posts but I've never actually done a full review on it, which is surprising as I would say it's one of my favourite and most used foundations. I can be pretty picky when it comes to choosing a foundation, so much so that I rarely ever repurchase the same one again. I feel like I bang on about my love for Clinique make up constantly, but they have quickly become one of my favourite brands and their products always leave me so impressed. 

The Clinique Stay-Matte Oil Free Makeup (£22) is an oil controlling foundation which provides all day coverage with a mattifying finish. Mainly aimed at oily and combination skin types, it contains shine absorbers which work to refine the look of problem areas and control oil breakthrough throughout the day, keeping skin shine free and looking balanced.

This does everything that I look for in a foundation, it has a light and creamy formula that is so easy to apply, blending beautifully into my skin giving sheer but buildable coverage that covers imperfections so well. I find that I rarely need concealer when I wear this, my complexion looks flawless and oh so natural. I am so pleased with this foundations ability to keep oil and shine under control, I've tried so many foundations that claim to do this but none compare to this one. It feels lovely and comfortable on my skin too, almost as if I'm not wearing any make up at all. 
I don't have a bad thing to say about this foundation - it's perfect for my skin type and has been my daily go to for quite some time now. I can't see myself changing anytime soon, I absolutely adore it.

If you're looking for a foundation that gives beautiful, flawless coverage while controlling shine, this is the one for you. I get a lot of compliments on my complexion and questions about what foundation I'm wearing when I use this, it truly is a wonderful product and I highly recommend it if your skin is on the oilier side.
