Lightweight Summer Foundation

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Easy To Apply
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Lightweight
  • Long-Lasting

Cons

  • Poor Coverage

Best Uses

  • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin
  • Light To Medium Coverage

Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

My mom bought this for me, so I decided to give it a shot. Normally, I don't buy Maybelline products because they test on animals.

This is definitely not medium to full coverage. Think of it as a lightweight, summer foundation that looks like your skin, just a little better. I have very fair skin (Ivory matches me perfectly) with a bit of redness from blemishes, tons of blackheads/visible pores on my nose, and VERY dark circles under my eyes. This foundation does a fair job in aiding my concealer with covering dark circles and doesn't fall into my pores. However, it definitely doesn't cover blemishes or redness.

On the plus side, it doesn't melt off in the humidity even without me using setting spray! It doesn't feel heavy at all; although, it can get a tad greasy throughout the day, but I do lean towards the oily side. I just occasionally use blotting papers when I notice my nose looking a little shiny, and I'm good to go!

As for application: this is very bendable and smooth, but not very buildable at all. I swap up between buffing it in with a foundation brush and using a damp makeup sponge. Doesn't really make a difference what you use, in my opinion. Both blend it in fine.

Over all, if you're looking for a low coverage, natural looking, lightweight foundation that won't melt off in the heat, this is it!

    Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

    I don't know, I really wanted to like this foundation but I just couldn't. It was really thick. It didn't blend well for me and it oxidized which is something I can't stand.

    Very impressed

    By Guillory Mom

    from Maurice, La

    Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

    I was hesitant to buy this when I saw SuperStay because the SuperStay foundations have always left me feeling dry. I read the reviews online and decided to try it anyway. Not only does my skin look great but it feels great too, very smooth. It does make my nose shiny with oil but honestly, every foundation, lotion, primer and foundation and every combination of each has left me with am oily nose so I can't take off points for that.

      Comments about Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation:

      Bought this because of Casey Holmes good review on youtube. Very good. I have large pores and it doesnt settle into them. I bought the palest shade and its perfect for my light skin. Really good coverage. Tried it under my eyes to see it covered my dark circles. That is usually a good way to see if something is full coverage. I would say it covered them 75%. I normally buy It bye bye foundation which is very expensive.

            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.

              Im fairly light with warm-yellow undertones.
              (For reference, 115 in mate and poreless is really pink/unnatural on me). I tried issuing porcelain, but it was way to light. What shade do you recommend? Sorry if this is to specific.

                A:

                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.

However, based on what we see, we suggest to take a look at 50 Natural Beige in our SuperStay Better Skin foundation. Our best suggestion is to visit your nearest Ulta for a better shade comparison!
