I really missed writing reviews and talking to you about products. I decided to do this more often this year. I find it very useful to have an opinion, good or bad. That is why I decided to change a little bit the structure of the reviews and be a little more “technical” in order to give as much information as possible, but without canceling my personal opinion.
Good. Shall we?
Maybelline Super Stay 24hr is a transfer resistant foundation, with a natural and comfortable appearance, suitable for any skin type. It maintains a strong look and a feeling of freshness throughout the day. It comes in 8 shades.
Packaging. The foundation comes in a 30 ml glass bottle with a pump. The cap has a good grip, so there is no risk of smearing in your beauty bag when transported. The pump doses a very good amount of foundation.
The texture is neither too liquid nor too creamy, it spreads easily and leaves a truly natural look. I applied it in two ways, with a sponge and fingers. I like it better how it applies with a sponge, it’s a more natural look and you don’t cake on too much product.
Available shades seem ok, I have it in the shade 021 – Nude and 032 – Golden and both are too dark for me, but I made them lighter with the lighting drops from The Body Shop(review here).
The lasting power is a good, it indeed lasted very well on the skin, but I would not say that it withstands 24 hours, at least not on me. On a normal or dry skin I think it will definitely have more lasting power, but my oily skin manages to beat it (oh my lovely skin…)
I would say that the coverage is medium, and you can build it up to a full one.
I really like that it does not have a strong odor, it is very subtle, almost unnoticeable.
As a conclusion, it’s a good foundation, one that I would recommend for daily use to those whom want a long lasting, medium coverage foundation. Also, you can use it for events, but if you have an oily skin, beware and take your compact powder with you!
Did you try it? What do you think?
