I have been loving drugstore foundations lately. I am not known to switch around foundations often because once I find one I like I tend to stick with it. I have been using the Maybelline SuperStay Foundation for years and has been my go to foundation. It’s one I always recommend and if you love medium to full coverage foundations you will need this one in your life. Although this foundation does not come with a pump which is disappointing to say the least the product itself makes it worth it. It is definitely my favorite drugstore foundation to date. I know now that the warmer weather is here most people are turning to lightweight foundations or tinted moisturizers but I have always been a full coverage type of girl no matter the season.

Texture/Coverage
This foundation feels lightweight but thick at the same time if that makes sense. What I really love about this foundation is a little bit goes a long way. The medium to full coverage covers blemishes and evens out my skin tone beautifully. The coverage reminds me of the Revlon Color Stay foundation except this suits my dry skin better and it’s more affordable. The finish is matte so I don’t feel the need to set it with a powder.

Application
I like to apply this foundation with a buffer brush and the end result is always flawless. Unlike Revlon’s Color Stay Foundation you actually don’t need to worry about blending out this foundation so quickly. Since this foundation doesn’t dry out as quickly you have more time to blend it out.

Staying Power
Even though this foundation did not last 24 hours on my skin (I was not expecting it too) it lasts a hell of long time. Let’s just say it the longest lasting foundation I have tried and that includes high end foundations.  It lasts a good 8-9 hours even without a primer. Now keep in mind I have very dry skin so if you have oily skin it might not last as long. I really love that it didn’t transfer easily and is a great foundation to use in the hot summer months. I also didn’t notice my face getting shiny or oily throughout the day.

 

According to the Maybelline website there are a total of 8 shades available which is not the greatest shade selection so finding your exact color match might be challenging. You could always mix colors to create your custom shade of course. The shade I use is Classic Beige which is a wonderful match for my NC30 skin tone.

I am all about finding budget friendly beauty products and don't see the need spending crazy amounts of money to achieve a flawless look when I can use this drugstore foundation. I love that a little bit of product goes a long way and lasts a really long time. I love that this foundation provides medium to full coverage since I'm not really a fan of light coverage foundations. I think this is a great foundation if you have dry/oily skin, hyper-pigmentation or acne scars. I wish it did come with a pump but hey I love the product inside so it's something I can sacrifice.

    I have phases, like: foundation phase and bare skin phase. I was on my bare skin phase till last week, now I am loving foundations for a while (OK, a week). So I will try to get this one this afternoon – I like what you said, good staying power and light and thick at the same time! I did understand what you meant!

    Nicely reviewed girl 🙂
    Seems a good buy .. But the limited shades is an issue !

    • Thank you

    • The limited shade selection is an issue but I notice that with a lot of drugstore brands.

  • Seems like a good foundation, nice review Simera 🙂

  • What a great, honest review. I always see this and doubt that it will last 24 hours haha! 9 hours is impressive though, especially without primer 🙂 Sounds like a nice product

    • It sure is. I have really dry skin so products tend to last longer for me. But it comes with a sacrifice early wrinkles.

  • Jinse

    This foundation looks really good! Great review 🙂

  • This foundation sounds really good, i am currently using Maybelline fit me foundation and it is amazing as well. Will check this next time.

    • I have yet to try out their Fit Me Foundation. Is it goo for dry skin?

  • Elle berman

    Great review, I love that is not drying on the skin. I can deal with the lack of pump, but it would be better with it, I agree.

    Thanks!
