Confirmed 10HR+ Staying Power, Medium-Full Coverage, Matte Finish, Feels Like Bare Skin, and Wears Like It's Waterproof
I have been rotating this foundation in 50 Nude (a strongly yellow, light-medium shade) with several other foundations for months. I have not worn this foundation for a full 24 hours and don't think I ever will, but I can certainly say that it holds up for an incredibly long time, with a staying power that I'm sure could breach the 10-hour mark (which is the longest I've worn it for).
I have combination oily skin, and this foundation is oil-free and leaves my skin with a nice, matte finish and non-transferable, medium- to full-coverage for almost a full 8-hour work shift, though some oil starts to seep through after that. Its oil-control properties are one of the best I've seen in any foundation, and it is probably the most durable foundation I've ever used, as even a Clinique beautician had trouble removing it before performing a color match with one of their own foundations. Surprisingly, for the coverage and staying power this foundation has, it feels incredibly lightweight; I napped in it for 4 hours and woke up forgetting I still had it on. It has a non-sticky finish so it felt like bare skin, so it's very comfortable to wear.
Recently I read from various blogs that this foundation was waterproof, although Maybelline does not seem to claim that it is. I was intrigued and wanted to try it out ever since getting back to cardio swimming, so just for kicks (and with a raised eyebrow from a male friend wondering why my face was done up), I wore this foundation to the pool. 2 hours later, even after wiping my face several times while in the pool (again forgetting that I had it on), I came out of the pool with it still on and fully intact. I used a makeup-removing wipe before taking a shower, and sure enough that wipe was covered in that foundation even after hitting the water so much. Maybelline may not have marketed this as a waterproof foundation, but it wears like one!
At around $9 for 1oz of product I think this is a great foundation whether I'm wearing it to work or to the pool, or even if I'm wearing it for a special occasion. The product wears comfortably, has great coverage with a natural finish, lasts through sweat and soak, and stays on long after the work day's over. This may just be the best foundation from Maybelline (and I've tried their Dream Matte Mousse, Dream Nude Airfoam, Fit Me, and Mineral Power Powder foundations), and is definitely one of the best I've ever tried.
LOVED THIS FOUNDATION WHEN I USED IT!
I used this foundation before I ran out and decided to try something different. But I loved the nice coverage it gave my acne prone skin. This foundation worked great for my oily skin and lasted all day. This did not make my face feel like it had a ton of foundation on which was a major perk for me! The foundation blended well and looked very natural! Loved it! I will go back to this when I need new foundation.
Great Coverage, Cheap, Long lasting, Perfect Colour
Maybelline New York SuperStay 24 Hour Foundation (30- Classic Ivory) – 4.5/5 Stars
Cost: $16.46 for a 30 mL bottle
- I’ve tried basically every foundation under the sun and this is the first one that I’ve liked in ages.
- It’s great if you’re on a bit of a budget but still want a good looking product that won’t melt away or rub off easily.
- I have light olive skin and the classic ivory is the perfect shade for me, it covers most of my blemishes except for the bags under my eyes.
- It’s very blendable and buildable which is great, however you only really need about the size of a 20 cent piece to cover your face completely.
- I’ve found that if you don’t apply it with your fingers before going over it with a sponge, then it doesn’t look as good.
Loving this foundation :)
Bought this hoping it did what it says on the tin and last all day and it does :). Its full coverage blends easy and lasts me all day which is good :). Also I think you don't need a lot to get full coverage but that's just my opinion so it lasts me a while. I think ill use this foundation for a long time until I found a better one.
Brilliant foundation! I've used this for years! Excellent coverage! I've got slightly rosacea prone sensitive skin and its never broke me out! I've recently been trying mac studio sculpt although studio sculpt has more of a dewy look this maybelline foundation is just as good for less than half the price!
don't waste your money on expensive foundations
No matter what my skin looks like or what my skin type is, this always works! Great coverage, very blendable, and truly lasts all day. This and the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Mousse are my favorite foundations. Looks pretty natural too. Try this before you pay alot of money for high-end foundation!
If you are looking for maximum coverage this foundation hits the spot. It goes on great and looks fresh for hourssss. I personally think it looks best with either a sheer or very light powder if youre not careful it comes out a little cakey. But overall great great product i definetly recommend.
I have very pale Irish skin and often find it difficult to source foundations that suit my skin tone. With Maybelline's Superstay 24HR Makeup (in 'Light Beige' which doesn't seem to be listed here) I was pleasantly suprised by how well it blends with the natural tone of your skin and really does have great staying power. I often top up this foundation with some white pressed powder throughout the day just give myself a fresh glow, but all in all I really can't fault this foundation. The colour tone blends so well, it stays all day, never irritates my skin, never triggers a break out, washing it off is a breeze and it's great value! Five stars from me! GF x
I've had this foundation for some time already so I don't know exactly the price of this product. If I had to guess maybe it's around $8-10 in Wal-Mart. This foundation is great for those outings when you're going to be outside sweating bullets. I recently went to an amusement park and I just wanted to put on a little makeup but I was afraid that anything I put on my face will cake up and make splotches. However, I took a big risk on my Super Stay Foundation in True Beige and it worked! After I cleaned/moisturized my face I applied this foundation with my hands and added powder to my T-zone. I applied the makeup at 8 AM and I got home around 7 PM. While I was in the amusement I was sweating and I got wet from the rides. The few things I really like about this foundation are: 1) It's affordable. Who doesn't like a cheap foundation?! 2) The coverage is great! Medium to heavy coverage. 3) The name doesn't lie, it's a super stay foundation. 4) When I get a little sweaty, I use a tissue to dab off the oil on my face and the foundation doesn't transfer in the tissue. It stays on your face! 5) It doesn't cake up on your face (keep in mind that you have to apply it lightly) and 6) After a few hours, I don't feel like there's a heavy gunk on my face. The consistency of the foundation is thick so yeah you'll feel a little bit of it after a few hours but hey you still get coverage and you look great! :)
Amazing Drugstore Foundation!
I'm in love with this foundation! I have problem with redness and blotchy skin with whiteheads (I have very fair,pale skin) and I was advised to buy a foundation of a light shade with warm, earthy brown tones and the sand beige is perfect! The coverage is fantastic and is perfect for me as a singer doing three-four shows a day. It's the perfect foundation for dancers, singers, actors, etc. and anyone who needs really good staying foundation! I highly recommend!
Attached is a photo of me wearing it! x
