I have this concealer in Cream. It is a good match for my NC25 skin once blended out.
It is comparable to Maybelline's Mineral Power which is discontinued. I also have Mineral Power in Cream. Superstay is a little more pink toned and does well to correct dark under eye circles. Less is more with this product! If you want fantastic results, dab a dot under your eye, blend away with fingers or with a synthetic brush! It is creamier than Mineral Power. Lasts longer also!
I bought Maybelline Superstay 24 and Maybelline Mineral Power both in the shade IVORY and swatched it on my hand but it is the wrong shade. If either of these concealer is anybody's HG, please inbox me. I will post it to you (Australian residents only, sorry!) IVORY would roughly work on NC15 girlies.
I have only swatched these on my hands! They are opened but have not been used. FOR FREE OF COURSE.
I thought that the claim for "superstay" was pure advertising, but i got really suprised.
I bought this on the colour 03-Light. It was the lightest available on the website i purchased, and decided to give it a go because i was looking for a full coverage concealer with decent staying power for my oily skin and i read some good reviews online.
I was worried about the color, because it seemed too dark and too pink (i have yellow undertone), but actually it works fine, even on top of the foundation. It becomes seemless and it blends really well all together.
It has really great coverage, so i love it for my blemishes and pigmentation spots (from old acne). It's very pigmented and you only need a tiny bit to cover them...
It can be drying for some people, it dries really fast and it doesn't move.. i have oily skin and it works fine to me. It can cling to dry patches on pimples that are healing but i noticed it's not too obvious, at least for me...
You have to apply thin layers until you have the amount of coverage you want without looking cakey... i usually apply two and it's enough for me..
As for staying power...OMG... it's really superstay. At the end of the day my foundation it's not the same, but the concealer it's still there, covering those blemishes, and without fading :O ...until i remove my makeup at night... really amazing...
As for dark circles, i think there are better options because it's a little bit drying for that area... and i would need a lighter colour for that...
So, great coverage and great lasting power... it's all i asked and i got it :D i'll definitely repurchasing it but maybe one shade lighter...
Completely disappointed by this product. I´ve been looking for a good concealer for around the eyes and I trust Maybelline, but it looks incredibly cakey and dry, and the lightest color is way too dark. Might be good for blemishes but the color is all wrong.
This product is good if you want full coverage makeup, because it is so pigmented. The only problem with it is the color range. At least here in Finland there are only two shades available, 2 & 3. Possibly elsewhere there is more shades. Shade 2 is light pink and shade 3 is tanned yellow. This is a problem, because my skin undertone is yellow but quite pale.
So, I would repurchase for a reason that I like the coverage and texture it has, but the shade selection could've been better. continued >>
Do not use this under the eyes! It will make them look cakey and it is very drying so it will accentuate fine line and wrinkles.
I'm using this concealer for a while now and I LOVE IT! It covers my pimples very well. Actually I don't really have dark circles under my eyes, but I still use it there. It's kinda heavy. It isn't expensive for a concealer like this. I like the packaging, it comes with a little sponge in it.
I really recommend this product for people with acne, I have acne to and it doesn't break me out. Also, it stay on really long. Why 4 lippies? Because it's hard to take of at night and it dries really fast.
I love this product for concelaling my spots and blemishes. It's thick and has very good coverage.
However because of it's thickness I wouldn't recomment it as an under-eye concealer. It would be far too heavy under the eyes so I use Rimmel Match perfect for eye bags.
I would definately repurchase this and I not I want to try out the Superstay foundation because this concealer is so good.
it feels very dry under the eyes and emphasizes wrinkles. on the other hand, i have oily skin and nothing holds around my nose to cover up the redness there, but this one works. i use it as a face concealer and it performs quite well due to its dry texture and it stays put long time. as a result, i like it a lot for the face, but definitely not under the eyes.
I use this to reduce the redness on my nose and the slight grayish-purple color under my eyes. it dries quickly, which I like. less is more.I like hard candy's glamouflage, but the maybelline actually dries on my nose unlike the glamouflage. it's a great price and it does what it says it does. this does settle into lines...but I don't put it where I have any lines. issue solved for me!
I've been using this concealer for over a year now and LOVE it. The only downside is the range of colors, but like others have said, if you put it under foundation or powder it looks fine. Until about a month ago I had terrible acne and this saved me and helped make my skin seem flawless. Now it makes my already clear skin look like porcelain. This works great for under eye darkness, discoloration, and acne. Also, I just started using this as an eye primer and my eyeshadow doesn't crease for 8+ hours. Try this out, you won't regret it!
