My Thoughts On The Maybelline 24 Hour Superstay Foundation!

Hey beaut's!

After hearing so many positive things about the Maybelline 24 Hour Superstay Foundation I thought it was about time I gave it a whirl, I must admit for some reason I never buy Maybelline foundations so I really had no idea what to expect but the fact it was on a 2 for £12.00 deal gave me the extra insentive to finally try it!
The foundation itself has 17 shades to choose from - well on the Superdrug website theres 17 shades to shop I'm not 100% sure on how many shades are available in store - I opted for the shade 03 True Ivory which is one of the lightest shades from the range, it does match me ok but could do with being slightly more pink for my undertone, I actually found it quite hard to match myself up if I'm honest but hey what else is new, I really want these brands to up their game now with foundation shades as most of them are pretty ridiculous aren't they!
The foundation claims to have a soft matte finish, has full coverage that will transform your skin, is suitable for all skin types and has 24 hour that's some pretty bold claims and claims that I like the sound of, so out came my beauty blender and I whacked it on my face. Now I've been using this foundation around 3 weeks now I do like it but there is one thing I so dislike which I'll get onto shorty. Firstly lets talk about the coverage...Theres no denying this foundation covers well and it defiantly makes my skin look pretty incredible even if I do say so myself, and for a full coverage foundation it's so lightweight and thin feeling on the skin which is a major bonus for me as I hate the feeling of a thick or heavy foundation but this is surprisingly light. The foundation does have a really nice semi-matte finish which is perfect for me and my combination skin and I never find that it clings or exposes any dry patches on my face which is another bonus, and the lasting power is very good too, my skin generally looks the same at the end of the day from when I put my makeup on in the morning and my other base makeup seems to sit so well on top of it, my T-zone is generally a bit oily at the end of the day but that happens with most of my foundations!
The only negative I really have about the formula of this foundation is that it does really oxidise on my skin during the day, it gets a shade or two darker as the day goes on which is so annoying, it's quite strange really as I never have problems with foundations oxidising but hey I guess theres a first for everything. Apart from that I do really like everything about this fundation, the formula is nice and blends well with a beauty blender or makeup brush, the coverage is amazing, it lasts really well, I do think most skin types would get on with the formula unless you where super dry. I like the packagaing too, it comes in a glass bottle with a pump which is another added bonus! The price is ok, it's £9.99 but if you can get it on the 2 for £12.00 deal it makes it such a bargain at just £6.00 a bottle!

Have you tried this foundation before beaut's? What did you think? I'd love to know!

  3. It's a shame about the colour of the foundation oxidising on your skin throughout the day.. You really don't want a foundation that does that!!
