REVIEW: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation

Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation
R  E  V  I  E  W

hello mon cher reader! The better skin foundation from Maybelline is one of my most recent purchases and I've tried it already, had some not so ordinary experience with it and this is why I decided to review this product to whoever it may concern.

I snatched this foundation when I couldn't find the right shade of my beloved True Match by L'Oreal (READ: MY HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION). This one appealed to me with its loud and bold promise of 'better skin' on each bottle and the first (the lightest) shade in their range of 8 seemed like the right color for me. So this is how it ended up in my shopping cart, now let me tell you how it ended up shoved in the back of my makeup drawer.

This is what it claims and what I expected: 

I have no idea how I'd find out whether it helps my skin within the 3 weeks since I can't wear it for even a single day. For me, this isn't working at all. I wore this only once and thank god I only had a few classes that day because I was this close to rushing into ladies room and wiping it all off! It was really unbearable. All the bad things I've experienced with makeup foundations are in this one one product. 

It creases immediately after application. It's all streaky if applied with a blush, so I chose a sponge. It is, however, well blendable, but besides that and a good shade fit, there are no more good things I can tell you about this product. So lets continue on bashing this foundation, shall we! The coverage it has on my face, is something between light and medium. And I wouldn't say it's buildable up to a full coverage since putting loads of this stuff on my face doesn't seem so appealing to me. Instead of covering up, it exaggerates my imperfections. 

I'd like to repeat that this is the way the Better Skin foundation worked on my skin, maybe it works magic on someone else's. Have you tried it? Please do share your thoughts in the comments! And of course, feel free to ask anything because I'm sure I missed loads of stuff to mention, I've only done a few product reviews in my life after all hehe... But more are definitely to come.

bisou bisou,


  1. SAME! I put it on and it seemed like I had literally A TON of foundation on. So cakey, ew. Whipped it off right away. I wish we could take it back to the store just like the youtubers say they do, when they don't like it :((

    1. yes! I wish they could accept it back :(

  2. I seen this foundation in Superdrug, the colour range didn't appeal to me at all, all shades looked too dark (pale skin girl alert!) I am glad I didn't pick it up to try it out now, it doesn't sound good at all! Thank you for sharing your thoughts! xo
