Here's the description for Stay Matte on Clinique's site:
Tested for streaking and fading at 88°F with a constant 80% humidity, all to prove Stay-Matte stays fresh. At the same time, this patent-pending formula absorbs shine, controls oil, resists sweat. And you stay matte all day.Well, I live in a climate where temps above 88°F with a constant 80% humidity are the norm, plus I've got oily skin, so I'm a good test market.
Stay Matte has a creamy texture that blended well and provided light to medium coverage. On the downside, it does not contain an SPF. For me, at least, lotion SPF's leave my face quite shiny, which wars against my foundation. I've been using a powder SPF product from Peter Thomas Roth that helps with this issue. I'm wondering if Clinique did not include a SPF because they do not lend themselves to mattifying?
