Rated 3.8 out of 5 stars
I am super oily and I can tell in one day if the foundation bottle will stay or need to be returned. I'm keeping it!
Pros- the coverage is flawless and the wear is something that I can't explain, almost velvety. I'm pleased to say the least.
Cons- The matte look will turn into a dewy look by afternoon; however, dewy and greasy are two very different looks. Dewy means that their is a glow but no separation or sliding. Do even when the dew sets in...it's nice.
I got this when it first launched in this site. I got natural ivory (112) I'm in 112 in the matte & poreless so I thought it'd match. But it does oxidize! I returned for porcelain. It still dries darker. Concealers in top doesn't look right in some areas. Looks heavy around my nose & chin. I am usually oily but since it's been so cold I've been very dry. This really doesn't look good on dry skin! It cakes up around dry patches. Eve between my brows where I have some invisible fuzz from not waxing, it looks awful. I've tried so many different primers/setting sprays & it's just not working for me. Which does suck because if it looked right on my skin I'd love a cheaper alternative to a great full coverage foundation but this just isn't it. I've even tried mixing this with my pro glow & that's the dewiest foundation I own & it doesn't help. Idk. It's just not worth it for me. I think you'd have to have perfect skin for this to work. By 4 hours I was in a store & saw myself in a mirror & holy moly, did I look awful. I just left because I was so embarrassed of how my face looked. My pores looked ginormous & it had separated around my nose (I wasn't oily, Idk what made it break down like that). I just don't know. I wish it worked but it just didn't for me

My first application of this product was great; subsequent applications were horrible for some reason regardless of what prep, primer, or brush I used. Horrible blending capabilities. Very disappointed in the product. I thought it was initially a "me" problem and am glad to see I'm not alone in being seriously let down by the new formula

This is one of the best full coverage foundations that i have tried. I have Rosacea, im super red on my cheeks & this covers it all! In love with this & would purchase again!

i picked quite a fair shade and found that it still looked orange on my pale skin… i was disappointed considering i even got help from ulta employees finding my shade. full coverage though.

I used this product when it first launched and i loved it then and even more now, it sets beautifully but it dries quickly so i prefer a damp sponge over brush.

i got this because i needed new foundation and it does stay . when i went home after work it took me 30 mins to remove off my face and it doesnt come off my face in the shower. and u even need two makeup removers after taking a shower becuz thats how stubborn the makeup is stuck on your face. thats when i realized i will neever use this as ever day makeup its not worth the hype or time to use this or money. maybelline failed again at makeupits too conhesive. returned this back to ulta to refund. dont buy this foundation at all. back off

I swear I've used this product before and loved it. They must have changed the formula because it's a mess now. No matter what I do for skin prep this product separates and blends horribly. It is very difficult to use and even after getting it to look halfway decent, a couple hours later, it breaks up all over my face. I've tried so many different ways to prep my skin and use setting spray and nothing helps. I've never had a foundation look as terrible as this one. Run away from this foundation.

This is a review for the old version of this foundation. Probably irrelevant, but I thought I'd add it anyway. I actually do have this current 30 hour version as well. But for the original 24 hour superstay foundation. It's great for a drugstore option. It holds up FAIRLY well in heat and on oily skin. It's a great option for everyday but I'd also say you can use this for special occasions and events where you need your makeup to last. I work outside in the heat for most of my day. And any foundation that's not breaking up, separating or extremely gross looking at the end of my 9-10 hours is GREAT in my book. I will compare to the 30 hour wear and see how they compare. The photo I included shows the foundation after 9 hours of wear outside in the heat. Of course I'm oily and the foundation has oxidized. I took one star off because it's not my perfect match and it does oxidize over time. Don't really think it's the product. Could be because I'm so oily and because I'm outside and the sun is constantly beating my face.
If you have oily, oily combo, or normal skin, this is a must have. It doesn't look cakey, lasts all day, and is very affordable! I couldn't recommend this more!

I have combination skin but I lean more on the dry side and all though this foundation is matte, it works perfectly with my skin! It lasts all day, and provides great coverage. This product does not crease which I love because I usually have a lot of creasing under my eyes. One downside about this product is I have yet to find a concealer that blends well with it. Luckily this foundation provides enough coverage for my dark circles and I just set my under eyes with a lighter setting powder. Always comes out perfect :)

Actually purchased as a backup. Will definitely to be moved to my number 1. Love the all-day coverage!

I knew this foundation broke me out when I tried it years ago but I wanted to try it again to see if maybe something else was breaking me out… I was right the entire time….. I broke out through out the day… 5 new pimples within literally JUST ONE DAY ARE U KIDDING ME? Anyways, just pls avoid this, the finish was so good and I didn't need to touch up at all but that fact it gave me 5 pimple… NO.

Broke out my skin after a few hours and the formula is so bad it was hard to blend out

I would say my review is a 4/5. I noticed that when I tested the product at first on my hand it dried up fast and seemed too matte for me, but I found a way around that. When I prepped my skin I used a moisturizer, sunscreen, and primer which added a glow and dewiness to my skin and then I blended the foundation in with a wet beauty blender (I found this was the hack for my skin to have it blend perfectly). All of my other products used such as concealer, contour, and blush blended perfectly as I always use all cream blushes and then set my face and I had no issues. I think you just need to find the right combo of skin prep products first before applying the foundation.

You know how every time you get your face painted at the fair, it cracks and just feels like cement on your face? That's this foundation. The formula belongs in the trash. It blends terribly and doesn't do your base any justice.

this foundation caught my eye because it is malassezia safe but i found with products that are they obviously can't use too many ingredients thats feed into it and unfortunately some of the those ingredients tend to be oils and esters that help blend and glide the product really well onto the skin.
so here's what i recommend:
1. really go hard into the skin prep including skincare & primer. find yourself a hydrating primer or setting spray so that the application can be a lot easier
2. choose a tool that won't suck up too much product, i found brushes to be easier than beauty blender since it dries up so quick
3. make sure you're using setting spray again and patting through the skin to make sure there aren't any weird patchy areas.
unfortunately won't be purchasing again but that's just bc my skin condition and the texture i want ian't all there— HOWEVER it is very much so long-wear. i've gone clubbing for hours hanging out with friends what have you and this girl STICKS to the stick alright. I live in florida so that has got to say something with the amount i sweat 😭

After struggling for what feels like forever to find a foundation formula I liked in a shade that actually matches me (super pale over here) AND that's actually long wearing, this is a home run. I hesitated in trying it for a while because of the reviews, but now I'm a big fan.
do not buy from corona
i bought this and i had to buy another foundation to match my skin color

I cannot brag about how beautiful this product is! I have received so many compliments on my foundation and I have Recommended it to so many who have asked! Definitely recommend this is anyone.
Angela from Templeton
I used the new Ulta shade match tool- the shade was not right. This product looks white with a chalky finish. Not a good look. I'm
So glad I they were out of the better brand and I didn't get stuck with the wrong shade of a more expensive brand.
Nataly from Farmington NM
Full coverage and the shade match was perfect too
It looked flawless on my skin

Worst foundation I've ever tried. After putting the foundation on, when I put my concealer & contour on A. It wouldn't blend properly & B. It took off all the makeup when I tried to blend it with a beauty blender. Terrible foundation wouldn't NOT recommend
