Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation

Maybelline did a huge giveaway on Facebook and I was one of lucky ones to receive a bottle of their new foundation. It’s called SuperStay Better Skin Foundation. Based on the name, I thought it was a foundation that claims to look like skin in a my-skin-but-better kind of way. But it’s not. However, it promises better looking skin in 3 weeks.

I picked the shade Golden from the eight shades available and I was right on the money with that guess! The shade looked a bit darker on the bottle, which frightened me at first as it would mean I won’t be able to use it, but it turned out to be a good match when applied to my skin. What a relief! There was, however, the slightest hint of pink. It’s barely noticeable but worth the mention. Funny that with a shade called Golden.


Formulation is liquid and application is so easy! I like to use my fingers for applying base (liquid anyway) and this just glides. It provides light to buildable coverage with a dewy finish, which I like since I have dry skin. It claims to last all day and it does! It also has SPF20 for that bit of sun protection.

I’ve only been using the foundation for about a week, so I can’t vouch for the better skin claim. I don’t have problematic skin to begin with (I say this in the least bragging way possible) so I don’t expect to see any huge changes in my skin. But I absolutely would not mind any skin tone enhancing benefits.

Do I like it? Yes! I think it’s a great deal for the price which is in my case, free. But seriously, it is very good. I wouldn’t think twice on purchasing it for myself if I was on the lookout for a drugstore foundation.
