Today's review is on the SuperStay 24HR Make-Up by Maybelline which I hope you find helpful.! ^-^
First of all, this foundation comes in a glass bottle (which I'd probably drop one day) packaging with NO pump. Yes, it's a new trend yo. Wished it came with a pump though since it'd save the messy application and also allows me to control how much product comes out.
I have this shade in Sandy Beige which is probably like ten thousand shades lighter than my skin-tone (ok.. maybe not). Adding to that, I have quite a strong yellow undertone to my skin, so this shade tends to look too neutral when applied and sometimes a little too pink. So I guess another downfall of this foundation is that there are only ten shades and it only covers light~medium skintones. There are no shades available for dark skin tones (or available here in Australia) so that's a shame...
Now that I've got all the downfalls out of the way, we shall move onto the good stuff!
The consistency is perfect. I love how it's not too watery, therefore it doesn't slide all over the back of my hand, especially when it doesn't have a pump.
This foundation offers a medium-full coverage with an 'inbetween of dewy and matte' finish. You can use a thin layer for a medium coverage if you like, but an average layer will offer a tad heavier than medium cover (in between of medium~full). As for me, I have to apply a corrector and concealer (even though the foundation can build to full coverage) because I do have red scars which still peeks through.
I actually really like this foundation! It claims to be an 'oil-free and fragrance free' foundation which 'stays comfortable and looks naturally flawless all day'. True to its word. This foundation does looks incredibly natural when applied which lasts for at least 8 hours to a maximum of approximately 10 hours, depending on the temperature.
Maybelline also claims that this foundation contains a 'Micro-flex formula which provides 24-hour wear and no transfer'. It also 'withstands heat, humidity and sweat' and is 'dermatologist tested'. Sadly, I do find that it does transfer quite easily onto my t-shirt's neck-line and when using tissue near my face. As for the 'heat and humidity', I work in KFC's heat and humidity and this foundation does bear it pretty well, though I find that it does become more easily transferable after at the end of the shift and I do notice that my t-zone becomes more oily and shiny too.
At the end of the day, would I repurchase?
Yes! It's similar foundation to the Revlon Colorstay except that it lasts up to a decent 8-10 hours only, feels more light-weight and has no unattractive chemical smell.
This baby retails for $21.95 at Target, Big W and Priceline with occasional sales.
