    Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

    I used to spend mega bucks on M.A.C. Kat Von D, Urban Decay and then ended out with Bare Minerals to try a more natural approach since I don't wear a lot of makeup (compared to some) until I literally bought a foundation from Bare Minerals that made me throw their entire line in the trash. This review is literallt my entire makeup regimen because I feel it may help some of you achieve a beautiful look for 85 dollars vs. 150-300. After consulting with friends who had skin similar to mine (combination, acne-prone) and reading a ton of reviews I finally found my saving Grace in makeup and this foundation is part of my new and CHEAP regimen. I apply this foundation over my primer (e.l.f. blemish control face primer) with my middle and ring fingers and allow to rest (or bake, whatever term suits you) for at least 5-7 minutes usually unless I'm in a hurry and then I use one of my old bare minerals brushes (the only thing I kept from my expensive makeup) and finish off with Maybelline's Shine Free Loose powder. Atop my powder, I brush on Maybelline's Master contour (contour,blush, highlight) over my face and cheekbones (use my middle finger for the highlighter) and a little Maybelline Master chrome metallic highlighter directly underneath my eyebrows on my brown bone to open up my already large eyes. I am in love with e.l.f.'s nude rose gold eyeshadow palette and also apply that with my middle and ring fingers (never use index unless you want heavy coverage). I curl my lashes and then stick my face into the shower (as to not spray the next product all over my arms and bathroom floor) and spray 4-5 mists of e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set finishing spray (it got terrible reviews for how it sprays but for a couple of dollars and three bottles later, I'm in love) and I allow that to dry usually by fanning my face with my hands for a few seconds (or use a fan or blow-dryer on low, cool setting). My final step is my wonderful Mascara, CoverGirl Katy Kat Eye. Hope this helps!!!

        I applied the product with a beauty blender, did not blend well. I suppose a brush is a better option to blend. The foundation itself is thick, even when you pump it out from the bottle.

          I love this foundation. I have super oily skin and this works wonders. Slightly matte finish but the most important thing is that this foundation stayed on SO WELL. I got a slightly darker shade than I was suppose to but that's not stopping me. The coverage is pretty medium which makes it the perfect everyday foundation (spf too!), love the price and everything about this, highly recommend!

            It's so good, the foundation itself is lightweight barely feel it there (also depending how much layers applied, usually a good amount is fair enough), applies smoothly and has a good finish after setting into my skin. Definitely would recommend and will buy another.

                  I love this foundation! I've compared it to Lancome & Elizabeth Arden foundations and thought the Maybelline was the better choice. It has a more matte finish and buildable coverage while the others felt too sheer or greasy. If you don't want a shiny or dewey finish then get this foundation.

                  Didn't like this at all. Within an hour of wearing it, it always becomes dry and patchy in random areas. Melted away easy. Just looked horrible. Ended up throwing it away because I couldn't give it to anyone knowing what how bad it was

                    Another item I saw Casey Holmes use and although I was skeptical about a drugstore brand, I love it. I have veered away from drugstore foundations for years because of bad breakouts in the past, but decided to give this the old college try, and I'm glad I did (I'm an avid IT and Urban Decay foundation girl). For me, it blends better with a beauty blender than a brush, but probably to each their own. I tend to have a build a bit on the areas where I'm more red, but I'm okay with that because of the price.

                        Thanks for your question about the differences between the SuperStay Better Skin Foundation and Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. Both foundations provide similar coverage (medium) and have a matte finish. The feel should be the same with both and they are both great choices for normal to oily skin. The Matte + Poreless is a better choice for oily skin and the Better Skin is a better choice for more normal skin. They both have long, all day wear. Only the Better Skin has an SPF and skin brightening Vitamin C. The Matte + Poreless is more focused on controlling excess oil and blurring the appearance of larger pores to give the face a more polished and flawless finish.
