Maybelline Superstay 24H Foundation Review

Maybelline Superstay 24H Foundation Review

I’ve heard a lot of beauty bloggers talking about the Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour foundation. I still can’t figure out if the formula or just the packaging is what recently changed with this foundation. I don’t own the older one so I don’t have any way of testing them out. But with all the hype around it I figured I would give it a try. I’m obsessed with Maybelline foundations. I don’t think I’ve tried one that I haven’t liked so far – except the original Fit Me foundation which is a little too dewy for me.

There seemed to be a fairly wide shade range when I picked out my colour. I always grab the 120ish foundations. The Classic Ivory shade always seems to have the right undertone for me. After applying this I found it to be a little bit darker than the Fit Me 120 foundation. But it was totally workable with some strategically placed concealer. I did think that this had the perfect undertone for me. Maybelline is usually pretty good at having a warmer undertone in the lighter shades. Lately I’ve only been applying my foundation with a beauty blender. (I keep forgetting my wash mat at my parents house so all of my foundation brushes need a wash!) But I loved how this applied with a beauty sponge. It gave me a medium to full coverage while still looking fairly natural on my skin. It blended into my skin well and didn’t seem to overly accentuate any of my pores. I did find that it settled into some of the lines and wrinkles I have on my face though. I have a lot of lines on my forehead and they seemed to seep right into them. But what was weird is that after a short amount of time the foundation kind of settled down and my forehead lines weren’t nearly as noticeable.At the end of the day the foundation held up fairly well. I wouldn’t say that this was entirely 24 hour though. The main downside to this is that my face looked a little oily in the evening. This seems to be a common issue with most of the beauty bloggers that I follow who have tried out this foundation. It wasn’t something that I completely hated though. Like I didn’t feel like I looked like an oil slick or anything but it looked like I was slightly sweaty around the 8 hour mark. I did have some issues with it wearing off around my nose. But I’ve had a cold that I just can’t get rid of lately so I’ve been blowing my nose quite frequently. I don’t know too many foundations that would hold up well to that.Overall I think I like this just about as much as I love my Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation. This one has fairly similar packaging. It comes with a pump and that kind of gives it a bit of a step up in my opinion. I think this will be a really great foundation for the winter time because it made my skin look more alive and lifelike!

    I’m quite keen on trying this foundation ever since I heard Tati talk about it. I feel like it may be a tad too drying on me but i can always mix a more hydrating foundation with it.

      Yeah I think this would be great to mix with other foundations! By the end of the day it isn’t at all drying on me so it would be interesting to see how it works for you!
