Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder Review

Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder

Brace yourself, fellow oily skinned readers, the season of humidity is nearly upon and you know what that means - shiny skin and lots of it. Sure a typical pressed powder will help reduce the sheen but the problem with excess sebum and powder is that there is only so many times you can apply, before the powder will begin to cake, oxidise and generally become uncomfortable. Then there is blotting sheets which you'll either love or loathe - if not used properly they can remove make-up along with excess oil. So what is a person to do? Invest in a good blotting powder that's what and one that will be rolling around the bottom of my bag, this coming Summer is Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder.

To the naked eye, the packaging of Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder may appear to be nothing special but what you can't see is how slender and lightweight the compact truly is - perfect for handbags and of course general on-the-go usage. As to be expected Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder also contains a great sized and quality mirror, along with a soft, thin sponge to gently blot away oil. You can of course use with any tool you wish: sponge, brush or even a beauty blender. If you do decide to use the sponge provided within the Clinique compact be sure to wash it weekly to prevent bacteria from building up.

As the name suggests, Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder, is indeed suitable for all. Yes in the pan and when heavily swatched, Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder does appear a stark white in tone but rest assure once applied to the skin it become completely invisible both on colour and finish. Unlike traditional face powders, you can apply Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder as many times as you like throughout the day and it will not cake nor become uncomfortable; rather when gently patted on to the skin, it gently absorbs oil without removing make-up nor altering the finish. I should also add that it does not add any additional coverage nor does it tint the skin but oddly I have found that it does to some degree gently blur imperfections such as fine lines and enlarged pores. If that is not enough to convince you that you need Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder in your handbag, this blotting powder can also be used underneath powder foundation as a primer too - clever huh?

Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder will launch this coming April (8th) and will cost £26/8.4g.

  1. This sounds like something I need in my life! It's kind of what I hoped S&G's One Heck Of A Blot would be but sadly that didn't really work for me :(

  5. As an oily skin girl to me this is exciting. But dang that price. £26 for a powder so small is a lot. Think I might stick to my S&G!

  6. I think I need this. I'm already starting to have issues with oily looking skin during the day. It's working in a hot office that does it.
