Review of Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Concealer by sushiiflower
Based on reviews I saw on youtube, I decided to give this a go. My previous go to concealers were MAC's concealer in the pot in NW35 or NW40 or Dermablend in Bronze. The downside to Maybelline's line is the limited shade range. I chose the darkest color, #750 in Deep Beige. This color looked too light for me but I figure I would try it anyway because if it didn't work out, I could have always returned it. When I put it on my face, the color was very light but I did notice the coverage was opaque which what I liked. When I used a natural hair brush to blend the concealer it really blended into my skin and the color worked. What was better compared to my usual concealer, was this did not blend out or push the concealer around. When I blended my other concealers, the more I blended, the more sheer the coverage was. This had the opposite effect. It worked with my skintone, covered up blemishes and best of all, no transfer and the edges blended seamlessly. The coverage lasted until I removed it -- which is usually a full work day and travel time so about 12 hours. It does dry fast, so I suggest working in smaller areas. The applicator is doe foot lipglass type applicator, since I use a brush to apply, I don't have an issue with the applicator. The amount of product for the price is definitely pricey, so I recommend purchasing this on sale. And the biggest downside is the color selection. Very poor especially because I can imagine this will not suit a multitude of skin tones. Nonetheless, it works for me, so I will continue to buy it for the opaque & budge proof coverage.
EDITED TO ADD: I absolutely ADORE the coverage but this does not photograph well on my skin. It looks great in person but in pics, it definitely reflects light. Please make this in darker colors Maybelline.
