beauty: the one where i try a full coverage base

When it comes to makeup, I usually go for a more natural look even though I do wear foundation every day. So, when Maybelline sent me over their new Super Stay 24 hours foundation, I thought that it won’t be my cup of tea. However, when I tried it I felt a little bit different. Let’s see how, shall we?

This foundation comes in quite a range of different shades especially considering that it is from the drugstore. From very fair to quite dark ones, I first tried True Ivory shade, which is the lightest one, but surprisingly doesn’t have any pink undertones. It is amazing, because usually I find it difficult to find foundations that are fair but without any pinkness. The foundation had a thick texture, so I had to blend it very quickly, but it went on really smoothly & one pump covered my whole face. However, at first I thought that the colour is a bit off and too light for my skin tone. It was nothing major, so I went along with it. After a few hours, I looked at my face and it looked even better than before, which only meant that the foundation oxidised and the colour now was absolutely perfect.

Talking about the longevity, I wore this foundation for more than 12 hours and it stayed on my face perfectly. The most amazing thing was that my face didn’t look cakey, it looked like my skin but without any imperfections. Honestly, I didn’t expect this result from Super Stay 24hour range, for some reason I always thought that it wouldn’t be natural looking, or then long lasting, but I could have never been more wrong.

To sum up, if you want a foundation that lasts long and still looks beautiful on your skin, this is the one to go for. Plus, it is affordable - score! Just keep in mind to pick up a shade lighter than you normally are because it is going to oxidise after some time.
