Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder in Translucent

I’m always on the the hunt for a good translucent powder to set my foundation in place. When the clinique consultant introduced this product to me, I knew I had to have it. It retails for R460 for a 7.6g so this was within my budget.

It is a sheer pressed powder but not only does it have shine absorbing properties, it is oil free. The finish of this powder has a matte finish. It product works perfectly for oily skin people.

I love the fact that this simple compact product comes with a mirror making it very travel friendly. It also comes with a sponge applicator which is also another thumbs up from me. It definitely keeps my oils at bay after a long day. Even though I have oily skin I hardly have to touch up when I wear it for 6 to 7 hours. This is such a good product but it only has one downside. Even though it is a translucent powder not meant to change the color of the foundation but just help set the make up in place, it is just too light for my nc45 skin. I sometimes get away with this powder when I wear a dark color foundation. Another thing about this product it’s not photo friendly. It’s just perfect for everyday use. My skin loves it and I haven’t had a break out using it.

I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking for a a translucent powder for everyday use. If you are lighter than me then it will be perfect for photography pictures. However if you are my complexion, its a no no for photography pictures.

That’s it for now. Thanks for reading this right till the end. Until my next post. Take care😊
