Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Skin Transforming Foundation in Classic Ivory
Bought from: Chedelyn Cosmetics
Bought for: P480
So, I have this holy grail foundation in my stash. Can we keep it in the name: Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Skin Transforming Foundation? To know why I love this, please keep on reading.
When my boyfriend and I went to Pop Culture, Trinoma to visit Chedelyn Cosmetics last June (whoops, I already have this foundation for like, 4 months), it was not in my intention to buy this Maybelline Foundation. I was eyeing the Revlon one, but the seller insisted I get it along with the Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation because she said it's better. And so I was sweet-talked into buying both. Now, I regret even regretting buying this because it is so amazing!
The shade that I got here was the Classic Ivory (120), perfect because I usually purchase classic ivory in most foundation shades. Still, there are times when I get a different shade especially if Classic Ivory is not among the options. Please be reminded that I am not an expert in getting the right shade (I am so sorry huhu) so most of the time, I had to ask the seller which fits me best. By the way, I have a fair complexion with a yellow undertone. I think it's partly luck that this Classic Ivory feels and looks like my skin.
Like most foundations, Maybelline Better Skin Foundation is stored in a glass bottle with a blue plastic pump. Sometimes, there is something wrong with it as it feels lose and its sometimes kinda hard to dispense product. Sometimes, I have to pump twice or thrice to get my desired amount. But at least, it does come out, right?
I guess the most intriguing part about it is its claim to make your skin better-looking after days of continuous use. I mean, who else bears the same claim? I won't trick you into buying this by saying that this claim is true. No, it does not make my skin looks better in a span of a month, not even after using this once in a while in four months. However, it does not cause me zits, nor any skin imperfections probably because of the Salicylic Acid content. Also, I did not consider using it just because of this kind of claim, but because it is such a nice foundation that would back you up every freakin' day!
Are you aware that I have oily skin? If you are having the same, oh well, this is extra plus for you as it dries fast and is matte! This does not exactly delivers a flat matte finish unlike the Fit Me variant though. This one still feels hydrating and moisturizing despite being formulated oil-free. On the other hand, it may not be for those with dry skin or those who undergo peeling as it tends to emphasize dryness.
The formula is very lightweight and offers light to medium coverage. It is so easy to blend as well. In my case, a drop-sized amount would be sufficient for my whole face. Longevity wise, I would pretty much say it did pass for that matter as it can withstand humidity in the country for a good 4-6 hours without retouch. Well, I don't really do retouch, just a few blotting papers and loose powder to absorb excess oil then I'm good to go.
Overall, I love Maybelline Better Skin Foundation! And I highly recommend it to those with normal, combination to oily skin types. It dries matte, easy to blend with up to medium coverage, long lasting, has no pungent smell, affordable and hypoallergenic! I swear, this is one of the best drugstore foundations that I have tried!
