"Yes, in the first place I have to confess a lover of the Clinique brand ... For me there is no other like.

They are products of intermediate price (there are much cheaper but there are also tremendously more expensive brands) and all without exception are ANTIALERGIC AND WITHOUT PERFUME. These two things to me are fundamental, because my skin is extremely delicate and I also hate to smell several things at the same time, I like to smell only my perfume and not carry a hodgepodge of odors.
Well, to what we were going. They are compact powders ideal for women like me, with oily skin, something that I feel very happy, because it is a certain delay in the appearance of the much dreaded wrinkles on the skin.
They have a WIDE COLOR PANEL, adaptable from the lightest skins (like mine) to the darker ones. I can tell you that I use two colors that are 02 Stay Neutral and 03 Stay Beige and that cover perfectly from the winter, when I am paler and need good color, to the summer, after having taken something the sun.

They give a PERFECT COVERAGE of all the imperfections and much more if they are used like finish of the make-up of the same line of Clinique, that is called Stay Perfect Lightweight Compact Makeup, giving a velvety and uniform skin sensation.
They easily withstand a hard day's work, and afterwards their presentation makes it easy to give a simple touch-up to keep looking perfect ... Their box is a perfect size, it has tassel for its application and a mirror that in many occasions has Out of a good hurry.
As for the price, as I said before, I do not seem excessive, since I have used similar products from other brands cheaper, but have not given me the same quality and that in time have been consumed before and also others More expensive but of which the difference has not convinced me.

I use this as a setting powder after I’ve used my “even better glow” Clique foundation. I have such sensitive skin it reacts to almost anything so I have to be careful of products ingredients to avoid a little bump or rash. CLINIQUE never irritates my skin so I’m a loyal customer. This product feels soft on my skin and is full coverage. I don’t need to reapply for approx 2 hours, to absorb the oils. It makes my skin look so luminously glowing, I get compliments all the time. It’s great for the price, and lasts me 6 months.

Review for: 04 Stay Honey more...
I really enjoy this powder just because it doesn't really add coverage but just makes your skin matte and set in place for the day. It feels light and airy on the skin and doesn't look cakey. I will say that it doesn't look like you're getting any product on your brush or sponge because there is absolutely NO kickup. Don't be fooled though. A little goes a very long way with this. This is one of those cases where less is more. It's just a great powder for all over your face. I use a loose powder under my eyes though.

Review for: 24 Stay Tea more...
This product is one of my holy grails. I have combination skin and finding a foundation or BB cream that works with oily and dry is difficult, and this product gives enough coverage to hide redness and blend blemishes (it isn't full coverage if that's what you're looking for), without ever looking cakey or oily. I've used it for YEARS. I highly recommend, even for you full coverage ladies that don't wanna go full glam sometimes and just want a little coverage if you're running out the door.

Review for: Buff more...
I do not feel that this did much to help keep my face looking matte throughout the day, especially for a product that markets itself as a “stay matte” product. The coverage was decent as was the finish immediately after application. But throughout the day my face was oily and on top of that, it oxidized like nobody’s business. I think that even though this was meant for us oilier folks, this would do better on someone that is not extremely oily like me.

Review for: 22 Stay Light Neutral more...
This was the first powder I ever bought and I still love it. I have oily skin so I always worry about getting shiny but this keeps my makeup in place and the oil away. Drugstores (especially Macy’s) usually have a “spend $15-30 on Clinique products and get a bag with deluxe Clinique samples for free” deal. So I suggest staying on the lookout for that if you’re interested in the powder.

Review for: Invisible more...
Let me start off by saying i have extremelyyyyyyyy oily skin. So when i wear makeup it tends to get a little crazy around my nose and on my forehead. This product does an amazing job keeping down the oil. My makeup went from not lasting all day because it was so shiny ... to lasting all day and looking like i just applied it at the end of the night with minimal shine!! Highly recommend!

Review for: Stay more...
I honestly havent used this since high school. It is a nice product I just feel there is so many better products out there. I feel like too much makes me cakey and is very noticeable. There are other products that don’t do that. It’s a higher price range too which makes me expect more. That’s kind of why I left it in the past.

Review for: 02 Stay Neutral more...
Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder is a good everyday powder for natural makeup days. The packaging is beautiful as it is a marble white and green casing. It comes with a sponge and a nice mirror inside. It definitely does the job covering up your shiny spots. If you want a full coverage powder I would not recommend it. However, like I said it’s good for every day use.

Review for: Neutral more...
This was my staple make-up product when I was in high school and didn't have too much maintenance I had to do for my skin (not that much acne). But now, I really don't like this powder. It looks cake-y on my skin and doesn't last throughout the entire day. If you have dry skin, I'd steer away from this product.

I would love to try this, I am super oily. I have used urban decay powder for very oily faces, and it's pretty good but it broke to pieces after a few weeks and it was $30. Does this really work?

For what it costs is it worth the buy?? a lot of powders leave your face looking powdery, I'm really trying to find a good powder that doesn't look like I'm really wearing any !
