It seems like were always reminded that makeup is bad for the skin. Were always told that it's not exactly good to pile on layers of cosmetics on your skin daily, and that we should let our skin "breathe" sometimes. So, when a product like Maybelline's Super Stay Better Skin Foundation comes out, claiming to be a long-wear foundation that actually improves the skins appearance after extended use, I can't help but try it!
I paid around $10 for this foundations, and it's available in most drugstores and at Ulta. It comes in 11 shades, and here I have the second to darkest shade, Warm Honey.
Not only does this foundation have beautiful packaging; it also has a pump which really eases the application process.
This foundation contains antioxidants and vitamin c which supposed to give you a brighter and more even complexion in as little as 3 weeks. I've really put this claim to the test for the past month, and I don't think it necessarily improved my skin. I still notice the same amount of dark spots and my skin doesn't really appear brighter once I remove the foundation.
However, the lasting power on this foundation is pretty phenomenal. This is my go-to foundation for daily wear because I can count on it to stay on my skin 8+ hours without fading. The Superstay Foundation applies very smoothly and evenly, and it doesn't take large amounts of products to give me medium coverage. It also doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all.
In the pic below I had been wearing the foundation 8 hours:
Overall, if you are looking for a drugstore foundation that looks great on the skin, provides good coverage, and has great lasting power; you'll probably enjoy this one. I wish the shade selection was better (and catered better to darker skin tones), and I think the claim that it improves the skin is a little gimmicky. But it is reliable, and I would definitely repurchase it.
