Next month, Maybelline will be releasing a new version of their already popular Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation. It comes with a new formula that’s enriched with ACTYL-C, a nourishing vitamin extract that will help improve skin in as little as three weeks. It will help reduce the appearance of spots, bumps, dullness and redness for an all-over brighter, more even and smoother complexion.
Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation comes in a sleek, rectangular glass bottle with pump applicator for easy and hygienic application. It has a slightly thicker, almost cream-like texture that does take some work to blend into the skin. It’s incredibly lightweight and comfortable to wear the entire day. It adheres nicely to the skin, without looking too heavy or cakey or clinging to any dry patches. It provides a medium to full coverage with almost a completely matte finish. It sets fairly quickly, so you’re going to have to hurry if you want to build the coverage before it dries. It conceals any flaws and imperfections you may have on your skin, including breakouts, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, dark circles and redness. It stays put, without creasing, sliding around or oxidizing for a solid 10+ hours and leaves your skin looking completely flawless.
Although Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation has a richer and creamy consistency than a lot of foundations, with the right makeup brush, it blends over the skin easily and smoothly. I’m obsessed with the finish and coverage, excellent pigmentation for a drugstore foundation. I love that it’s a matte finish, yet still has somewhat of a dewiness to it. It looks extremely natural, never heavy and it also doesn’t accentuate any dry areas on my face. It’s perfect for days when I’m in a hurry, as it sets quickly without that tacky feeling of other full-coverage foundations. I’m not sure if it’s going to actually improve the appearance of my overall complexion, but I’m very impressed with the formula, coverage and longevity. It really does last throughout the day without fading or becoming patchy. It comes in 12 new shades and retails for $14.99.

A concealer goes hand in hand with a foundation, so also coming this September is a new Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector. It too is formulated with ACTYL-C to help improve the skin the more you use it.
Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector comes with a sponge tip applicator for easy application. It has a slightly thin and creamy texture that applies to the skin beautifully and doesn’t cling to any dry areas. It sets and dries fairly quickly and feels quite hydrating on the skin. Not exactly moisturizing, but not drying in the slight bit. Although it doesn’t last the entire day, before fading and creasy ever so slightly, you can still expect a solid 5 hours before it slowing starts to break down. It has okay pigmentation, about a light to medium coverage. You could almost build it up to a full, but you run the risk of looking heavy and cakey.
I’m not sure Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector will actually lighten up dark circles or age spots overtime, as I don’t think it has the beneficially ingredients to do this, but it’s an excellent drugstore concealer that’s for sure. It sets and dries to an almost satin finish, so I’m not sure how oily skin girls are going to feel about this, but us dry skin girls are going to love it. Since the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation does such a wonderful job on its own at creating a completely smooth and flawless canvas to my complexion, I didn’t feel the need for a ton of concealer. The slightly darker spots and few blemishes I had, this concealer did a wonderful job at covering up. It comes in 6 new shades and retails for $10.99.
