Whether you deal with oily skin year-round, or just during very hot summer months, Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup is one of the most perfect, everyday-easy foundations I've found in quite a while.
The formula is stellar from start to finish. On my combination skin, the texture is creamy and light, with a slight gel-like feel. It felt so amazing going on my skin and the color match, 24 Golden (shown, above) was perfect.
During the summer, I like to use foundation sparingly, mainly in my t zone. I loved using this with a foundation brush. I also like that just a pea sized amount was more than enough for covering my desired areas. The finish was fantastic - matte with just a light sheen that looked very natural.
The foundation kept me matte throughout most of the day, and generally I only had to blot a bit during the late afternoon (and the amount of oil that came off was significantly less than usual). Even in very humid/hot conditions, this foundation stayed on (very impressive!) This is a great foundation even for those with sensitive skin as is does not clog pores or irritate skin.
If you don't have very oily skin, this formula will give you a nice finished look even without any additional powder on top. The color range is plentiful with a nice mix of more yellow, pink and orange toned shades. This is a must have foundation for me now (year round)! - RLB
