My New Favourite Foundationđź’•

I couldn't even tell you the last time I bought myself a new foundation. I hadn't really bothered with it, but one foundation I really wanted to try was the Maybelline Superstay Foundation 24 Hour because I had heard so many positive reviews about it, including my friends raving about them. When it was reduced to £7 in Morrisons, I had to give it a try because all my other foundations were running low. And I am proud to announce that I didn't buy the lightest shade either! (It was the second lightest but still).

On my first use, I was shocked at how good the coverage was, it literally covered everything - some days I don't even need any concealer with this. It blends out so well too, it's just effortless. I use a damp makeup sponge and it doesn't appear cakey in the slightest. Before applying, I use a primer (any, I'm not fussed), set with my powder then my setting spray.

As I have oily skin, foundation has the tendency to "disappear" on my face throughout the day. I don't know why but my skin isn't great with some foundation. However, with this, my base looks as good later in the day as it does when I first do my makeup. For example, the west of Scotland was hit by Storm Ali which resulted in a load of rain and wind, so I expected to have patchy makeup, but, when I (eventually) got home, the foundation was still in tact and looked near enough perfect. Result? Much so.

The staying power impresses me on a daily basis when I wear it to college, but the real challenge was wearing it on a night out. Last weekend, I went to a gbx night in a club, and on average, my makeup just doesn't last well on a night out. When it leave the house, it looks good, but upon coming home, my foundation is pretty much non-existent, with my oily skin exposed. This however, it's a game changer. I can usually feel my skin becoming oily and it's not a pretty sight. This though almost "blocks" the oils from coming through, and the coverage is still pretty good. I love it.


  1. I never used this one... my skin is not good with foundations too.. Recently, I started using Bioderma Nude Touch, it's really good. It controls oil for long hours! <3
