Today I have a review of the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin foundation. It is a liquid foundation that is oil free with SPF 15 (titanium dioxide) and actyl C. It claims to be a skin-transforming foundation that improves skin’s look in 3 weeks by reducing the appearance of spots, bump, dullness, and redness. While I can’t say that it has done all of that, I can say that I really like this foundation. I bought the shade 15 ivory which was a little too light for my skin. This summer was the first in a few years that I got enough color to change my foundation shade so out of habit I bought the shade that was closest to what my skin usually is. My first impression was that it didn’t blend easily with a flat foundation brush but it was better when I used my fingers (I haven’t tried it with a buffing foundation brush) and that it had a nice satiny finish with medium coverage. It evened out my skin tone and hid blemishes and the redness on my nose and cheeks without covering my freckles, which I liked. By midday it hadn’t started breaking down and I really liked how it was wearing on my face after a few hours. Around 6:00 when I was going out for the evening it had started breaking down around my nose and on my chin but overall it still looked pretty nice.
The website has 12 different shades, ladies with deeper skin tones, this might not be one for you, but the Target I bought this had like 5 shades, this was probably due to shades selling out but be aware that availability might be limited.
Overall I really liked this foundation, the coverage wasn’t buildable, apply more than one layer and it starts looking cakey, but one layer provided nice coverage and the finish is really nice. I would give this 4 stars out of 5.
Have a great day!
