Hello beauties, How is summer coming on? I unboxed one of my recent beauty hauls and I got over a dozen messages asking my thoughts on the Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage foundation. I decided to actively test it the past week through different weather conditions and lighting and give my final unbiased thoughts. This foundation launched late last year and has said to be the No 1 drugstore foundation now in the US.

My Review on the Maybelline Superstay Foundation

I love the packaging, it is a glass bottle which can break. Unlike the fit me it comes with a pump which is white like the cap (bound to get dirty). The finish is completely matte. In one layer (1.5 – 2 pumps for my whole face) it actually gives a soft velvety matte finish. It is matte and not cakey and does a good job in hiding spots and imperfection. Almost too matte for me, (I love matte but it slightly emphasizes my smile lines, because I have a normal to dry skin).

Also the undertone with this foundation is slightly wrong a little too orange as with most Maybelline skin products are either too orange or too red. Upon application, It slightly oxidizes and turns darker so you need to factor this when getting matched. Allow to sit for a few minutes and completely get dry before you decide. I wore this for about 8 – 12 hours on different days without touching up and my face was pretty much perfect. For someone with a normal to dry skin I was expecting a lot of creasing but that was not the case. This foundation is perfect or your everyday routine because you can wear it alone without setting with a powder. It ‘self sets’ itself and is almost a 100% transfer proof which is a win-win.
