The Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation & Concealer Range is Maybelline’s first vitamin enriched long wear foundation and concealer with skin improving Actyl-C. They claim all-day flawless coverage and smoother, more even skin, in 3 weeks.
So what does Actyl-C do? It helps promote skin regeneration, evens discolouration and dull areas for a fresh, healthy and radiant glow.
I put it to the test and thought what better way to review a foundation than with pictures!
First off, I feel it’s important to mention that because I’m super pale, the shade I’m wearing is Ivory but the foundation is available in 8 shades: 005 Beige, 010 Ivory, 020 Cameo, 021 Nude, 030 Sand, 032 Golden, 040 Fawn, & 048 Sun Beige. The concealer I’m wearing is 02 Light and it’s available in 2 shades: 02 Light & 03 Medium.
Here’s my skin with absolutely no make up on, so you can make up your mind for yourself if this is a product you want to invest in. As you can see, I have a few blemishes.
I used one pump of foundation.
Next step – Concealer! As you can see, I used a teeny smudge. I used this under my eyes, around my nose and to cover any blemishes. Again, I used my Zoeva brushes. i actually used a 223 which is an eye blender brush to put the concealer on and the buffed it out with a 142, which is a concealer buffer brush.
I took a quick picture before I finished my make up so you can see the foundation and concealer sit on the face.
I finished the look with a few other bits and pieces which are listed below. I went for a natural everyday look.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 005 Silky Beige
Nars Blush in Orgasm
Urban Decay’s Naked Pallete 2 for a natural eye
Zoeva Graphic Eyes Rock n Roll Bride to line
Model Co Fat Lash Volumising Black Mascara
Essence Lip Liner – In the Nude
Make Up Forever Lab Shine Star Collection Lip Gloss in S2
As you can see, the foundation looks beautiful on. I love this foundation. It really does stay put all day long. My skin looked flawless. I also haven’t mentioned that it has an SPF of 14 which is great. I would like a higher SPF in foundations but I actually don’t know of any that are above SPF15. The concealer definitely covered my blemishes and I loved that my skin felt like it could breathe.
I would definitely buy this one again so thumbs up from me!
