I’m always keen to try new foundations as my skin is always changing with the weather. Sometimes its dry, sometimes oily, normal and even sometimes a combination. Everyone skin type is different. It’s currently summer here in Perth, Western Australia, and man its hot. I was recently sent the Maybelline Super Stay Foundation to try and review on my blog and here are my thoughts.*

Maybelline Super Stay® Full Coverage Foundation delivers 24-hour wear for concentrated coverage and a flawless finish that doesn’t fade or shift all day. – Maybelline Webiste
This foundation retails for $24.95 Australian Dollars
The foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pop of lid revealing a pump so there is no mess. I used a damp beauty blender for application. I started off with 2 pumps of foundation, starting from the middle of my face and working my way out. This way it blended out smoother. I required 4 pumps of the foundation to cover my whole face. There is no smell to this foundation. For my skin tone I use a mixture of 2 shades, Ivory and Nude Beige.
The foundation comes in a liquid form and was super easy to blend out. I have extremely dark circles around my eyes and it covered them with no help of primer or concealer. The foundation is definitely full coverage with a smooth finish. The formula dries to a light matte finish which I love and did not at all feel cakey. Although, even thought not needed, If you apply 2 layers of foundation it will feel very heavy on the skin. The foundation was not at all tacky and dried within seconds of applying. I really enjoy this formula.
Performance and Wear
The foundation lasted all day on my face. But I have an oily t-tone and noticed the foundation had slid off my nose throughout the day. I’ve been using this foundation for the past week and have noticed a few pimples around me nose area which I don’t normally get, but unsure if the change in foundation has caused it. I use a setting powder to hold the foundation on my nose.
I really like this foundation. I would wear this foundation in the winter though as I feel the heat can make it melt off faster then the cool weather. I love the price point as well, its very affordable. Love when I can find a great drugstore product.
