Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation + Concealer Review

Better skin in a bottle? That's exactly what Mayblline's latest and greatest foundation and concealer duo promise. Naturally, I had to give them a try!

To start, the Better Skin Foundation (about $10) offers up buildable medium/full coverage that will pretty thoroughly even out your complexion. It has the consistency of a moisturizer, spreads smoothly and evenly across the skin, and feels almost undetectable when worn - a definite plus! I was really impressed with how this looked when first applied. It gave really flawless coverage with a satin finish. Unfortunately, it wasn't built to last. 

With a name like "Superstay", you might expect perfect wear until you're ready to remove it. Unfortunately, this turned into a greasy mess about 6 hours into the day. I have combination skin, so I'm used to some excess shine. But this foundation developed shine everywhere - even in areas that are typically dry for me! Even when wearing it over a primer, and set with powder, the shine is real. 

Overall, this could be a really great foundation for very dry/dry skin types, but combo and oily skin should beware. 

Fortunately, the story for the Better Skin Concealer + Corrector has a happier ending. This somewhat full coverage concealer has a yellow tint to help not only conceal, but neutralize discoloration. I'm really happy with the coverage, and despite having a thicker texture, I didn't experience it sinking into fine lines or caking up throughout the day. This was a winner for me!
