If your face is a natural oil-slick like mine and you like playing with makeup, then you’re on a never ending hunt for matte foundation. The Clinique Stay Matte Foundation was my holy grail, until I found out that Clinique is NOT VCF (like why?). So my hunt continued and after a lot of research, I caught a new animal. Check out the face off below to see if this new VCF foundation measures up to the Clinique foundation.
Clinique Stay Matte Oil-Free Makeup
This is probably my 5th or 6th bottle of the Clinique Stay Matte Foundation, that’s how much I loved it. I tried foundations from Giorgio Armani, Estee Lauder, IT Cosmetics, Pacifica and so many more looking for a VCF foundation and haven’t found one that keeps my oil at bay.
This is a lighter consistency foundation that doesn’t leave a cakey look. Best thing though is that it leaves your skin looking radiant and oh so nice.
Longevity: About half-a day, best when touched up with powder foundation every 4-5 hours.
Quality: Amazing. Goes on smooth, dries nicely and is build-able.
VCF: No 😦
Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation
The Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation is definitely a thicker foundation. A little bit goes a long way and I found that it’s best applied with a damp beauty blender…I use the orange sponge from Real Techniques. It comes in a lot of colors, so be sure to get color matched to get the right shade, only because it’s a high-coverage foundation. Last thing you want is a face that’s a much different shade than your body.
Longevity: It stays on ALL day–verified. Best when set with a powder.
Price: $35.00 for 1 oz.
Quality: Fantastic! Doesn’t feel cheap, but CAN look a little cakey if too much is applied.
Question of the Day
What’s your favorite VCF foundation?

I love KVD makeup! It’s all reasonably priced and you can feel good about what you are putting on your skin. Great post!
Agreed! Have you tried any of her lip stuff? I’m curious to try…
I have oily skin but have been loving Hourglass vanishing stick as a cruelty-free alternative! A little bit of powder and I’m good to go 🙂 Great post!
That’s awesome!! I’ll have to look into that—maybe another Friday Face Off 😉
