I love this concealer!!! I have tried so many brands from drugstore to high end and this is the only one that does what is supposed to do. It covers really well, blends easily and stays put for hours! I am slightly oily in the t-zone and this area is usually where I have a need for concealer. I put it on any blemish or red spot early in the morning and it lasts me straight through to the evening. The consistency is not too thick or too thin. It's just creamy enough without being greasy feeling and although I am sensitive to a lot of ingredients this has not caused breakouts. It says 24HR on the tube and I don't know if it would last that long but I am extremely impressed with this concealer. I don't have any under eye issues so I have not tried it there. I wear NC20 in MAC and chose the ivory shade for this concealer. It's a bit light, but once it's blended and I apply loose powder and blush it's undetectable. This is definitely HG for me and because drugstore companies pull their products so quickly, I am definitely stocking up in case this is discontinued.
24 hours? How about two?! This product definitely didn't live up to its claims of long-lasting concealer on my skin. It faded quickly, even when worn over foundation AND under powder, and it caked up under my nose, even though I don't overapply. I guess the search continues to find a lasting concealer...
This is a great concealer at a great price. I have recently gotten sick of paying a ton of money on cosmetics, so I've been on the hunt to find drug store brands that are comparable to my department store staples. I have been a devoted fan of Origin's Quick Hide! concealer, up until I discovered this little Maybelline gem. Superstay works just as good as my old Origins concealer, at less than half the cost.
Superstay does not crack or settle into lines at all. Where ever you put it is where it will stay until you wash it off. The bottle says that it has 24 hour staying power, and I believe it! Works great for hiding both blemishes and dark under-eye circles. Looks totally natural and flawless. Definitely glad I gave this one a try.
I LOVE THIS CONCEALER!!! i think i found my hg... i have dark circles, some days are worse than others! i usually have to put on a lot of concealer to hide my dark circles, then i have to reapply it throughout the day.. then whenever i put to much on it cakes, and it looks bad! with this i barely have to put any on, i just put a dab on each side and rub it in ( you have to rub it in quickly because it dries really fast) and it looks amazing!! it last all day and it doesnt cake at all!!! i dont think this is drying to my under eye area, but i always put eye cream on before i use anything! now it barely takes me any time to put on my concealer which before it did.. i LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
love this concealer!! its the only concealer that does stay on without caking. a lil goes a long way, so i would recommend using a thin layer. i have very severe dark circles, and this covers them up very well. i actually prefer this over MAC studio finish concealer for my dark circles. i think i found my perfect concealer.
Well, the only good thing I can say about this product is that it is very pigmented and gives a lot of coverage. That being said, I hated it and it went back to Rite Aid today for a full refund. With this product a little goes a VERY long way. I found it cakey and it emphasized my fine lines around my eyes. Also, it is not blendable at all. Dries way too quick. The lightest shade was almost white. Definitely would not recommend.
I've been using this daily (in medium beige) for about two months now, and it's a good product, but not HG worthy, in my opinion.
It's a matte formula, and it stays for about 9 hours on my (fairly clear) skin. I think it's actually very drying, so I've stopped using it under my eyes and have been using it on my forehead and around my nose, which is a shame since it did wonders to my horrible dark circles. I would say that if there is enough of this concealer on your skin, it will stay wet enough for you to apply quickly, but if you only need a small dab or let it sit on your skin, then it's pretty hard to work with. I used it alone for a few weeks, and it covered my imperfections but blended in well enough that it looked like I had nothing on my face at all, that was definitely something that will make me buy this again.
About the packaging: Around a month ago, the cap on the concealer started cracking, and now there's a big crack all the way through, and I can see the end of the wand. This concealer has never left my makeup stash at home, and has never been dropped or thrown, so I was a little disappointed in the quality of the packaging. I did contact customer service, and they were pretty fast about refunding me for the concealer.
I really like this concealer! Granted, I don't have a lot of experience with concealers, but I picked this up (in medium beige) to help with some redness and broken capillaries around my nose. The texture is quite nice--matte--with good coverage. I wouldn't use it under my eyes, though, definitely too matte/dry. The color selection is slim and a *bit* off for me, but if applied with a light hand it doesn't matter much. The staying power is, indeed, 'super.' I dabbed this on and went out cross country skiing and it didn't budge. Yay!
I also found that the light was too light\ and white toned, while the medium beige was too dark and brownish. Perhaps mixing the two will work, or using this product in conjuction with another might do the trick. As far as the coverage and the finish, both seem great (natural appearance but full coverage). As for those who've said that the product is too fast drying and difficult to apply, simply use the wand to place three dots of product under one eye at a time and pat and blend with a fingertip. I had no trouble applying it.
NOTE: The product seemed slightly harsh for under my eyes, as there was apparently some sensitivity to the ingredients in it.
A good concealer if you can get a color match. I'm usually easy to match, but the lightest shade was a bit too light/white-toned for me, and the second shade looked too dark. I like to apply concealer with my own brush instead of the wand supplied, and it was very hard to clean this out of the brush, so it was a bit more tenacious than I'd like. Staying power, blendability, and finish are all good, and it is buildable up to full coverage.
