How to Use
Rated 3.91 out of 5 stars
I usually use the It! Cosmetics Illumination Celebration Foundation because it has great coverage and doesn't look cakey. The only thing is even their lightest shade is too dark for me. This Maybelline Super Stay Powder Foundation, however, is actually a little too light in the lightest shade! That has never happened before. I'm impressed with their pale shades. Anywho, I only use powder foundation for when I have to get ready super fast. usually for taking my son to school or running errands. I have hyperpigmentation from old acne. This stuff isn't super full coverage. I'd say it's a nice medium. You can still just barely see my marks slightly. But it does a great job at evening out my skintone. It looks pretty natural on the skin. I got zero caking or crumbling like I have had with other powder foundations in the past. This one ends up looking like I put a light/medium foundation and then threw a light dusting of powder on top. It's very good and works for what I need it for! I did notice, as the day goes on, I get a little bit of weirdness happening around my nose. In the picture posted, I've been wearing it for 2hrs with a runny nose. So take that as you will.
When I first applied this powder foundation (with the sponge dry) I was blown away by the coverage. I didn't even need concealer! (I have aging, blotchy skin, huge pores, and some spots.) It definitely does NOT look natural. Like, at all. It's super-matte. But hey, major coverage! I was ready to give it holiest of grails status. BUT... within an hour, my t-zone was a grease slick. Forget about blotting, this stuff rubs right off with a light breeze. By the three hour mark, I was looking pretty rough - the powder had settled into every vertical line on my face - not so much the horizontal lines, but the vertical expression lines that you can't avoid making. It had started to settle into my pores and had completely disappeared around my nose. It was breaking up on my chin and forehead. By the afternoon I couldn't even stand to look at myself, ugh. So it definitely did NOT work for my oily t-zone (and I had even used a light dusting of setting powder when I first applied it). But here's the thing - on my cheeks and jawline, where my skin is a little dry, it still looked amazing - smooth, matte and perfect. So my guess is, this could work amazingly well for someone with normal to dry skin, who has not a trace of oiliness ever. But if your skin is even a little bit oily (mine is moderately so), forget about it. You will look amazing for about 30 minutes but then it will just go downhill over the course of the day. I so wish it had staying power for we of the oily-skins, because the coverage is legit. I may still try and work with it, maybe apply it with a brush or just use it as a spot concealer. Pretty disappointed overall though.

I have worn this for years. It takes 2 seconds to apply. I love the sponge applicator as well, really helps give more coverage. I cannot live without this powder. I used to work 12 hour shifts and it wore beautifully. I wish they would make a luminous one as well.
celtic from St Louis
love this. It beats all high end department store brands. I will never be without it.

Great powder, comes with a sponge and mirror. Covers nicely.
Ellie from California
I have dry skin and this is the only powder foundation I've found that doesn't cling to flakes, and truly has enough coverage to conceal redness as well. When swirling my brush in the pan there's fallout and it seems super powdery but on the skin is seems more buttery.
Mimi from Houston, TX
I apply this with a flat powder brush and gives me a nice even coverage and it covers really well!

This product is too complicated to use! It is an inconvenience to have to use, as the mirror isn't available to view yourself as you apply the powder to your face. Definitely going to return this product.

Ok Ladies!!! Wow this stuff is amazing! For a drug store powder foundation you would think it's high end. I have struggled to find a good powder foundation. I have tried It cosmetics, Bare minerals, tarte, mac, and Lancôme. While some of those are good it just didn't work for me and the shades were also a problem for me. Maybelline really did it with this one, good shade range for fair skin, it stays on and use a primer with it. Blends well does not cake. I like that it's not too drying and has some hydration to it. I have dry skin and I still moisturize well before application. But wow this is finally what I have been looking for. Please Maybelline don't discontinue this ever! It's so hard to find foundations that work for dry skin and I'm not a fan of liquid. Good job with this one!!!!! Yes I highly recommend this.

I love this powder, I keep buying it because it is light enough to feel nice but has full enough coverage to cover pink cheeks or slight off color marks.
Claudia R from Texas
Used to wear the foundation and now i am all about just this powder foundation! It's amazing! And its all you literally need! I recently started to paid it up with the superstay full coverage under-eye concealer! And works amazing not too heavy but in some way covers everything! Especially my redness!
Jen from Mexico mo
I use this under my eyes and on blemishes after my liquid concealer. It's covers everything up amazingly! It keeps my face from getting oily all day long. Would highly recommended!
Emmy from Visalia
I would buy this product again. I love using powder foundations especially when I have to wear a mask. I was using the Kat Von D powder foundation and that one doesn't really cover any freckles or redness just makes me look tan ,but I decided to try this one and let me tell you this one actually covered my redness and my freckles .I just prep my skin like I would for foundation and it last me all day.

Picked this up as a more affordable option for powder foundations. Does ok for the drugstore, but does seem to transfer quite a bit. Some of my high end powder foundations leave little to no residue on my face masks, where this one almost makes me feel like it took off half my face. Staying power is good when a face mask isn't at play. I won't ding them for that, as this is a whole new staying power challenge that cosmetics companies don't normally have to deal with.

I have what's considered normal skin, and an olive complexion with yellow undertones. The whole yellow undertones thing rules out many, many popular foundations for me. I'm so thankful that Maybelline offers a wide array of foundations just for such. I have always loved powder foundations. They just look better on my skin. I was using a very popular and more expensive mineral powder foundation for many years, and decided to try this one as I was sick of paying so much for my foundation. This foundation is totally perfect for my needs. I know it will not work for everyone, but it's the best I've found. So all the things I love: excellent color, buildable powder foundation which is also very convenient, and the price point can't be beat. I've found it lasts all day long if I use ELF's mineral infused primer. Other primers I've tried seemed to be made to be used in conjunction with liquid foundations

I use this every day and it never feels heavy. Goes on very nicely.
ash from ulta
this stuff is amazing, it never fails to make my skin look flawless. covers the redness on my face and i've gotten compliments on how natural it looks.
karokaro from new york
I am impressed with how flawless my oily red pimply and shiny skin looks like after applying this powder foundation. the only downside is, its hard to find the right color match based on the photograph of the product... I ordered natural ivory, but in real life it look so yellowy. anyways, next time I'll try different shade.
Cosgalevi from San Jose
My best and easiest go to and affordable powder foundation. It gives me the coverage I need. Although it does come with a compact sponge I find it more convenient when I use my buffing foundation brush.
