Editor's Rating & Review
Every girl needs a good blot now and then, and that's how this powder earns its stripes. The thin peach sponge does a fair job mattifying trouble spots and giving a deliberate satin finish to the T-zone. Be sure to blend with fingertips for a natural look. The sponge does collect skin oils, and it gets grungy, so be sure to wash it weekly with a light facial cleanser.

Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder Reviews
Just an okay powder.I didn't seem to notice any particularly mattifying effects from using this powder. It has an average length of wear. It's an okay powder, of average quality. The case isn't cute, but it's sturdy and holds up well. It's just OKAY. There isnt' anything really great about it, and it doesn't do what it says it'll do, but it doesn't make anything worse either. — 2 years, 1 month agoLipglossandSpandex | 520 reviews
short-term solutionI initially bought this powder in Stay Neutral to control mid-afternoon shine on my T-zone and other oily areas. Before I apply this powder, I used a blotting sheet to remove excess oil. The combination of the sheet and this powder helped to control the oily patches for some time. But I needed to touch up again when I went out in the evening. The coverage was actually good, but definitely neither light nor sheer. It helped masking my pores. Nevertheless, I should not have re-applied too often against the Southern heat and humidity. That was my stupidity. It became a bit chalky and heavy, and my skin ended up looking a little cakey by the end of the day. But as a short-term fix, it made a difference — 2 years, 6 months agoluckybetty | 895 reviews
AMAZING!!!I'm completely amazed by this product. I have quite oily skin and so powder foundation is a must for me. This works so well and you only need the tiniest bit to stay shine free all day. — 2 years, 2 months agoCliniqueLover | 297 reviews
