QUICK REVIEW: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation

Hey everyone! I decided to pick up the newest Maybelline foundation a few weeks ago when it finally arrived in Canada since I’d been seeing so much hype through social media. Read on for my thoughts about this product!

BetterSkin_Foundation_25_Nude_Beige_pack-shotFrom Maybelline.com: Superstay Better Skin Foundation gives an all-day flawless coverage and better-looking skin in 3 weeks. The foundation reduces the appearance of spots, dullness and uneveness and gives you a brighter, more even and stress-free skin. […] With the antioxidant power of Actyl-C, a more durable form of vitamin C. For all skin types. Medium to full coverage.
PROS: My skin did look brighter and this seemed to help a zit scar lighten up a bit, and also seemed to even out a bit of the hyperpigmentation I have on my face.
CONS: It’s a bit thicker than my beloved Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation, and unfortunately the colour, 125 Nude Beige  (which I tweeted at Maybelline for a recommendation) runs pink-toned against my skin so it’s not my perfect match. It is also not a mattifying formula, so for my combo-oily skin, I prefer the Matte + Poreless.
WOULD I REPURCHASE? Hmmm for my skin type and my minor skin concerns, I wouldn’t say this is necessary for me. I am currently going to use up what I have from other brands (I’ve got Burberry Cashmere and YSL Encre de Peau on the go) but will definitely be going back to the Matte + Poreless afterward. If you have more of an uneven skin tone without issues of oiliness and are looking for a drugstore serum foundation, this is definitely worth a try! (Hopefully your local store has testers…)
Are you using a serum foundation? Let me know if you have any recommendations on that front! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Great review! I’m always worried that the new “brightening” makeup and skincare will result in me looking pale! As a result I tend to avoid anything with the word “brightening” ha! xo J
