Maybelline New York Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation Review
What the brand says: Maybelline New York Super Stay 24H Full coverage Liquid Foundation delivers 24-hour wear for concentrated coverage and a flawless finish that doesn’t fade or shift all day. The saturated color pigments provide an ultra-transforming effect while the lightweight, yet high-impact coverage formula glides onto the skin for a flawless makeup finish that lasts all day.
MY TAKE ON Maybelline 24 Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation:
Packaging: The foundation comes in a sturdy glass bottle which is of great quality but the pump is made up of plastic and feels cheap, however I am glad they have at least included a pump with bottle!
Texture: The foundation is creamy and blends easily. Because the product dries down quickly into a superb matte finish, one needs to be quick with the blending process. Once applied, the foundation settles to a powdery-matte finish which does not even require setting with a powder.
How I use and after-effects: Apply 1 pump to your face and blend using a foundation brush or beauty sponge. I always prefer beauty sponge. For 100% coverage, you can go on with another layer but in my opinion, you won’t mostly require another layer until and unless you have really stubborn dark spots or dark circles.
I have always been obsessed with my MAC Studiofix Foundation and have already finished 7-8 bottles till date. However, it doesn’t give 100% opaque coverage and a few dark spots (whenever I get any) can easily be seen through the foundation. I had almost convinced my mind to get the Estee Lauder Foundation that promises full coverage but since Maybelline launched this one, I decided to give this a try once (also the price point attracted me!).
I got the shade ‘Golden 312’ which looked exactly like my MAC shade ‘NC42’. The foundation blended effortlessly and it was truly full coverage. I so loved the texture and finish but to my disappointment, the foundation on my face oxidized withing a minute and looked deep yellow to an extent that anyone can easily make out the difference between my face and neck. I had to finally get the shade ‘Sun Beige 310’ that exactly matched my neck and even after oxidizing, the yellow undertone wasn’t deep and blended perfectly with my natural skin color. I can definitely go even one shade lighter than this, but because I contour and highlight, it works perfectly fine.
The foundation settles to a powdery-matte finish and it feels like second skin and while I say this, I literally mean it! I always and always set my foundation with a translucent powder but I skipped the setting step after using this product! It is definitely lightweight and you can even use it just like that to even out your skin tone and hide imperfections and totally skip contouring for a natural light makeup. I am blown away by how comfortable and opaque this foundation is and what an amazing finish it gives on my combination skin. It stays put all day long without even fading or budging and there wasn’t any creasing around my mouth and eyes which is unbelievable. Skin stays matte for good 8-9 hours and if you have oily skin or oily T-zone, it can get a little shiny then but nothing a tissue- blot can’t do right?
If you have normal-dry skin or even combination skin like mine, moisturize your skin heavily before applying foundation to prevent drying out your skin. Also, the foundation is super-matte so if you want some shine or dewy effect, you need to use a highlighter!
This is my new favorite fountain and am sure is better than any high-end foundation out there! If you are in a lookout for a full-coverage high-quality foundation, I say get this today itself!
