Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

I use this product every day that I wear makeup and I love it. It's easy to apply and I have applied it with both a brush and a sponge. I find that it is medium coverage for me. I have every oily skin so I do find that I need to blot a few times a day with this foundation on unless I really powder up my skin. Overall, I love the price point for the value of the product. It lasts a long time for me and it does look like skin. It has a matte finish which I also enjoy. I gave it 4 stars because I do find that the foundation wears off on my nose throughout the day, but that may be from me blotting. If my skin is very dry it sticks to the dry spots, but otherwise it is a great product for those with normal to oily skin. Those with dryer skin may not like this product as much unless they really pack on the moisturizer. Overall a great product! I will definitely be repurchasing.

          Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

          Foundation is something that I'm willing to pay the big bucks for because my skin has acne scars and it's important for me to cover it up. This foundation provides the best coverage, doesn't look cakey, doesn't clog pores.
          It has a smooth, nice coverage. Something I can't say about other name brand expensive foundations that I've tried. I have been using this product for at least a year and I'm beyond satisfied!

            This was my first time trying this product. I tried it at the recommendation of a YouTube video. I was looking for a new foundation and this may be a keeper. I have mature skin, I felt that it gave medium coverage and did not accentuate the fine line and wrinkles. I did have to apply more product to get complete coverage. but it blended beautifully. Overall, I am pleased with this product.

              Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

              I've used this for over a year. It's always my go to even when I stray. I love Smashbox 15 Hour but it's pricey. This works for me. Good coverage and my 49 year old skin likes it. Doesn't feel heavy and when it settles into my lines (let's be real, any product will settle) it's easy to blend out with just a fingertip. I wish it wore as long as my Smashbox but the color is spot on so there's the trade off.

              Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

              This is a little dark, I usually buy a light/medium pigment, but I had to buy lighter with this one because it would show exactly where you applied and didn't apply.. I feel like I have to use more to make sure my face is covered. Vary orangy undertones to it. Have to apply a powder over top for more natural less wet look. But for the price it works, does last all day. So just work on finding the right tone. Had to mix number 10 &15 together.

              I bought this because I heard a lot good things. it definitely last through out the day and gives me the coverage I was looking for. and works pretty well. However it does settle into some fine lines I have that are not really noticeable until I put this on. I also like a more natural look to my face and I feel like it looks a little heavy.

                Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

                I normally wear Estee Lauder Double Wear in Rattan. Although the Double Wear covers and stays put, it drags on the skin and accentuates large pores because it is so thick. No foundation is perfect so I've been using it for years in spite of the mentioned flaws because the color selection is great, the coverage is excellent, no breakouts, stays put.
                Enter Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation. The color Warm Nude #30 is very natural with a yellow undertone that counteracts redness. It goes on very smooth without feeling pasty like Double Wear does. It dries to a soft, matte finish that looks fresher and lighter than Double Wear.
                I am 53 years old and as you age your skin looses some of it's elasticity and plumpness - which is why Double Wear was becoming just too heavy looking on my skin. I also have large pores and just an overall uneven reddish complexion due to teenage and early adult acne. I have found that the thicker the makeup, the more it accentuates pores. But you have to use something with coverage, right!!! It's a dilemma. I think this Maybelline foundation just may be the best alternative to Double Wear that I have yet to find. Much smoother application and finish. Excellent color choices too. Used to be when I was a teenager, all the foundations had a pink or orange undertone. YUK! Why did it take so long for yellow based foundations to be made? Just thankful that foundations keep improving because some of us have to wear it daily in order to look professional and well groomed.

                    Of course a foundation like the Super Stay Better Skin Foundation has some warm, cool and neutral shades. But its also important to select a shade as light or dark as your complexion as well. In the Super Stay Better Skin® Foundation the neutral shades are ivory 15, nude beige 25, buff beige 40, warm honey 90 and coconut 95.
