I’m sure most can tell from my posts, that my favorite type of makeup is anything eye related. I love shadow, liner, mascara, pretty much all of it. Even before I started the blog I probably had more eye shadow palettes than any one person needs. My second favorite makeup product to try is foundation. I was so excited to try the new Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage foundation.
I first saw the new Super Stay foundation on YouTube and Ulta online, but could not find it in-store for a while. But once I did I couldn’t wait to try it out. I picked mine up in the shade 110 Porcelain.
If you haven’t heard of this foundation its a reformulation of a foundation Maybelline used to carry. The foundation promises to be oil-free, full coverage, and long lasting. It comes in a nice glass bottle, 1 standard ounce, and with a pump! Which is a great bonus for a drugstore foundation.
So lets start with a really great before photo. What better day to test a high coverage foundation than on a day when my skin looked its worst.
This is me with zero makeup and my trusty purple bathrobe. As you can see I was in the middle of a pretty substantial break out.
I pumped out three pumps of foundation, but only used about two and a half. I applied the foundation on one side with a brush and the other side with a beauty blender. I like the way it applies with a brush best but I smooth it over with a beauty blender.
I will caution that it can be very easy to cake up this foundation if you apply too much. This is what it looks like on the skin. This is just foundation no spot concealer. Can we talk about the coverage! My blemishes were completely covered and none of the redness came through.
All of my other products applied great on top of the foundation. My concealer and powder looked flawless on top and my other powder products applied with ease.
Here is the foundation a few hours later in natural lighting. Still looking flawless and looking about as natural as a full coverage foundation can look.
I have to say I was really surprised and impressed with this foundation. If you love full coverage foundation then you have to give this a try. It is very long lasting and did not break down over the day. Even with my oily t-zone this foundation still looked amazing.
If full coverage foundation is not your thing you could still try it and mix it in with other foundations. I’ve mixed this with my Lancome Teint Idole and it works great mixed with other foundations.
What are some other drugstore releases are you excited for?
