I bought my SuperStay a while ago cuz I was looking for a thicker foundation that could provide more coverage for my skin. I decided on this one because the color options were great, and well, the name had me convinced (24 Hr.). I got it in True Beige, and it is almost a perfect match for my skintone. I apply it with a foundation brush, because it is thicker than most other foundations that i've tried. This works best in my opinion because it lets me get in all the little spaces and work it all around to cover my face, hairline and neck. It does stay on for a long time, which I love, but because I have such oily skin, it needs to be blotted quite a bit. If I go a whole day/night without touching it up, I look sooo oily!! :( But I do really like it. I'll most likely be buying it again once mine runs out:)
**Ohh, and I read that some people said theirs turned orange after applying it? Mine has never done that...maybe you have too dark of a shade or something?
I was going on holidays and wanted a makeup that wouldn't sweat off and wouldn't need too many touch ups. I was surprised at how well this held up and it wasn't even that expensive! it really surprised me and I would definitely buy again
I bought this when I was just starting to get into make up, its average
The good: the color selection is nice, blends well with the skin, has a decent coverage. A sort of "natural" satin finish
The bad: it oxidizes (made me look orange), fades after 2-3 hours on my super oily skin, and personally I didn't like the oily consistency. Didn't control shine or oil
Now I've tried other foundations, I know there are better ones out there
EDIT: I just repurchased this. Since cold weather came, my skin started to feel weird when using Revlon colorstay (my skin became somewhat dry) so I repurchased this in True Beige... My real color is Honey Beige being an NC 42 BUT this oxidizes a lot, so go a shade lighter if you have oily skin. Its a nice lightweight foundation easy to blend but as I've said it doesn't control oil at all. All in all a good foundation for everyday/work/school
I haven't had the greatest luck with foundations, I have had several misses over the years but have also managed to find a few that will work for me. This is one of them, is it perfect? No...but it is in the top 3 of foundations that I have tried. I need a full coverage foundation but also prefer liquid over cream, which is too much. While I need the full coverage I don't want the caked on or overdone look either. The staying power is decent, I don't know if it lasts 24 hours. I do tend to get oily in the t-zone but that's generally most foundations that I use, just my skin type. The difference here is that it's just the t-zone where others it was my whole face.
This will be my go to until I find the perfect foundation, who knows when that will be. Overall, I am satisfied with this product and I rate it a 4.
This product is amazing! Before using this, I was a firm believer in the Dream Smooth Mousse but it made my dry skin look oily at the end of the day. So one day, there was a sale on Maybelline cosmetics at the local drug store and I got this in the Nude shade. It says its formulated for all skin types, although its moisturizing for my dry skin, it would probably not be suited for acne-prone individuals. I do not use moisturizer on my face ( I know thats bad but it dries my skin out) but this foundation hydrates well enough to give me smooth and soft skin rather than a grease pit. the color matches perfectly and it covers my pores, dark eye circles and acne scars. I apply it around 5 am and take it off around 9 at night and it still looks good. If anything, my t-zone looks a little shiny that that happens with any foundation on me. It does not look cakey or noticable on my face and my mom complimented my complexion-which is rare. I got this foundation a few shades lighter than my regular shade because makeup tends to oxidize when exposed to sun.I live in Arizona and right now, there are highs of 116 degrees and my makeup does not drip off my face. I do hope that Maybelline does not discontinue this product. I do wish that, like everyone who wrote a review of this product, that the founation came in pump form like it does in Europe. Other than that, I am happy with this product and I use the Superstay concealer as well and its a nice match :)
I bought this one after the dream liquid foundation, and actually I like this one better. The color matches my skin and it also stays on the whole day. At the end of the day the foundation may slide off my T-zone, but that depends on my skin, it's not the fault of the foundation.
The price is also OK, I mean for teenagers like me there maybe are some cheaper ones, but €15 isn't a lot because mine was empty after 9 months!
I'll probably buy the superstay again, but first I'm going to try some others for the summer.
Good coverage but non transferable? Yeah, maybe after it's transferred onto your papers, hands, clothes...then you can't transfer it off.
Please ignore the people who say that this foundation goes orange after a few hours because it doesn't. They must have chosen the wrong shade for their skin tone. This foundation took me by surprise. There was a sample sachet in a magazine I purchased recently and I thought I might as well give it a go. The shade supplied was slightly darker than I would normally purchase, so I was really expecting a bad result. I also do not like foundations that are hard to remove like Revlon Colourstay, etc.. as I prefer a more natural look. Expecting to have to work quite quickly, I applied it in small patches and worked my way around my face. I could probably have just used my fingers to blend this, which was a surprise in itself, but I did use a cellulose sponge to finish it off. I found it a dream to work with and despite being a shade off what I normally would use, this looked really good! The finish on my combination skin was satiny and the coverage was medium. It covered any flaws, which in my case, is a bit of cheek redness. My concealer even blended well over this. Now I am confused as I have found my HG foundation in TheBalm and this foundation has me wanting more. Perhaps I will use TheBalm in summer when I need the SPF in our hot aussie sun and I can use SuperStay in winter. Now I just have to experiment with the two lightest shades to find my best match!
it's an okay foundation, but the older superstay was much better. makes me oily.
I purchased this foundation after the extensive advertising about on its micro-flex formula, only to realise that after a few months it'd become another disappointment. The foundation promises to be "Resisting: heat, humidity, sweat, dryness, motion, touch and life." staying flawless up to a total of 24 hours. Well I can tell you now that this product pretty much does none of that.
I applied this product using a MAC 190 foundation brush and at times with my fingers. At first I was very impressed with this product, it appeared to have a matte finish without layering any powder on top. I like my foundation to appear matte and after a few weeks I noticed that 3 hrs into wearing it my t-zone became very oily and my cheeks appeared to be shiny. This may of just occurred because of my skin type but no matter how many times I blotted or repowdered my face, it would become oily once again. I chose "True Beige" as it seem to match my skin tone when first applied but after a few hrs, the colour would then become a more orange/red tint - being a golden undertone, this just made my make up look very unnatural as there was an obvious difference in the colour of my face and neck but this could of just been caused by the fact I may have chosen the wrong tint.
In my opinion, the 24hr Super Stay foundation does not take heat or humidity very well. I felt as if I had to constantly avoid overexposure from the sun or the foundation would become oily and melt off. I wore this foundation during the summer holidays and after a long night out, I became too tired to remove my make up (I know, it's the worst thing I could of done for my face) and woke up to a pillow that was once perfectly white but had now been smeared with orange like make up - fyi. I was not wearing any sort of bronzer! So overall, I don't suggest this foundation for anyone and especially not ppl with combination - oily skin types.
