Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Skin-Transforming Foundation (MSRP $11.99) is a long-wear foundation designed to improve skin’s appearance in just three weeks. Influenster sent me this foundation to test and participate in the Maybelline Better Skin Challenge. Can wearing this foundation really reduce the appearance of spots, bumps, dullness and redness?
I love that this foundation has a pump and is in glass jar. The pump is easy to control- two pumps is the perfect amount to cover my face and blend down my neck. The bottle is slim, no extra bulk here.
I tested applying with a brush and my fingers, and it definitely applies best with a brush. It blends evenly and smoothly, and the color (10 Porcelain) was a great match for my skin tone. It looked slightly yellow before application, but dried more neutral.
Coverage & Wear
The foundation evened out my tone after application, no second coat needed. It gives medium coverage. The foundation does not last all day on my combination skin, breaking down and disappearing from my nose by the end of the day. My t-zone becomes oily and the foundation slides right off.
Ultimately, my skin is the same as when I started. From the picture it even looks worse, though I think that’s more an issue with consistent lighting on my part. I see zero improvement in the spots and redness.
While I liked the application and the shade of the foundation, ultimately it didn’t prove to be long-wearing or skin-transforming.
