Today’s review is going to be of the new Maybelline Super Stay 24h Foundation, that claims to be full coverage and to last up to 24h.
This is actually my mum foundation so the shade is a bit dark for me but I still wanted to review the formula.
The shade I have is 21 Nude Beige. I have to say that I swatched the shade lighter than this and it was too light and pink, at least in Italy it doesn’t come in very many shades which of course it’s a downside.
It retails for 12$ and you can get it here.
The bottle is made of glass and it has a pump. It contains 30ml of product which is pretty standard for a foundation.
I’m not the biggest fan of the glass bottle: it looks nice and fancy but I’m personally incredibly clumsy so I’m always scared to break it.
I appreciate the pump as it’s really sanitary.
FORMULA & COVERAGE
The formula is quite thick and not runny, it’s definitely full coverage.
I used two pumps to cover my entire face. The foundation is quite hard to blend because it dries really quickly and you can’t move it or it will get really blotchy.
My favourite way to apply it it’s with a damp sponge, I find that it makes the foundation mesh with the skin a lot better.
This foundation looks so BAD on me: it grabs to dry patches, it shows so much of my texture and it enhances my pores. I really don’t think it works for my skin type.
I also get shiny really quickly.
After about an hour it gets really shiny and it starts to break on my oily areas.
On my mum, it lasts all day though and it doesn’t transfer so if you have more normal to dry skin I think you’ll like it.

I wanted to like this foundation way more than I do but it doesn’t work for my skin type. I like the packaging and the coverage but it grabs to my dry patches and it shows texture and pores plus it gets oily super quickly. On the packaging, it doesn’t say anything about the finish, but it doesn’t work for my oily skin. My mum really likes it though so if you have more normal to dry skin and you are looking for a full coverage product, I think you might like it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
