About a month ago, Maybelline introduced their newest foundation – the Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation. Since Maybelline makes a few other popular foundations such as the Fit Me and Better Skin line – I was curious to see how this performed on the skin! With claims of being lightweight on the skin and full coverage, this sounds like the ultimate foundation!


The foundation comes in many different shades – ranging from Fair Porcelain to Truffle. I originally purchased this in Porcelain, however, it seemed really light for my skin. I ended up exchanging this shade for Natural Ivory, which seemed to match my shade and undertone a lot better.

Unfortunately, it does seem that this foundation oxidizes over time, so if I use this shade by itself, it can turn a little dark on me (even though it looks perfect when first applied). I’ve now gotten into the habit using this foundation by mixing it with another foundation that is a little lighter! Besides the shade range, another great thing about the foundation is the packaging! The bottle is sleek and it also includes a pump, which we all love!

When applying the foundation, I notice that the consistency of this is a little thicker than most foundations. The consistency and overall texture of the foundation reminds me of the Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation! It goes on smoothly and has great coverage! I love the overall finish that it gives – as it’s a very natural finish. I don’t find that I have any issues blending this into the skin or having it look cakey.

After a few hours of wear, I’d say the foundation does start to look a little worn. Although this is in the Super Stay line, I can’t say that it’s any more long-lasting than some of my other foundations. I’d say it wears for a good 8 to 10 hours, but then I start to get a little oily in my t-zone and it breaks up a little around my nose. However, I still think this foundation looks and wears beautifully on the skin for most of the day! I am very impressed with the look and feel of this from Maybelline.

Overall, this is one of my favorite foundations that I have been using lately! In the past few weeks, I’ve been mixing this with the bareMinerals BarePro Liquid Foundation, which looks really nice on the skin. It tones down the shade, while still having amazing coverage and a beautiful finish! In all, I think this is going to be a foundation that I keep in rotation!
