Beauty Find - CLINIQUE Stay Matte Universal Blotting Powder

If you normally have oily/combination skin which requires lots of powder, or summer brings on continual cases of the oily "breakthroughs" (even after using matte and/or oil-free products), then I have a new product you'll love.

CLINIQUE Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder is a clear, gel-based powder that works on all skin tones, soaks up oil, and doesn't disturb makeup when applied on top during the day.

I fell in love with CLINIQUE Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder the very first day I used it. I applied a light layer over my makeup in the morning, patting gently over my t zone using the enclosed sponge (I only used their sponge, not a powder brush).  It felt completely weightless and was absolutely clear - all I could see was my skin, with a fresh matte finish.

In the early afternoon, I checked for oil breakthrough, especially since I had been outside on a very hot day, and saw just a touch of shine on my forehead.  I applied again  and was impressed that my makeup/foundation was not disturbed or removed, and the matte finish returned, without any gummy, sticky or heavy build up.

On most days, I only needed to touch up twice, and it didn't clog my pores or cause any breakouts.  There is quite a bit of product in the case, and I see my CLINIQUE Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder lasting for several months, even with daily use.

Tip: You can also pat a bit of the Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder over lipstick for a matte finish/long lasting wear.  

I recommend ordering one for home and one for your purse/office so you're never without! - RLB
