Today I'd like to share with you my thoughts on the newly launched *Maybelline New York SuperStay Better Skin Foundation;

What They Say:
Maybelline New York SuperStay Better Skin Foundation is a liquid foundation that promotes skin regeneration and evens skin discolouration for a healthy, more radiant glow. The foundation has been formulated with vitamin B5 + septonic M3, magnesium, zinc and copper to hydrate and plump the skin. It also features a SPF 14 formula which helps to protect skin from sun damage. The foundation provides a full and comfortable, long-lasting coverage.

RRP: $21.95 (30ml) – Available from Priceline, supermarkets and selected pharmacies

What I Say:
The foundation promises to promote skin regeneration and even skin discolouration, and thanks to the added ingredients it claims to hydrate and plump the skin, - so technically, the more you wear it, the more your skin should improve.

The foundation comes in a glass bottle with a handy pump, which makes it easy to use and dispense just the amount you need. It has next to no scent, and the consistency makes it easy to apply and blend evenly into the skin both with your fingers and with a foundation brush.


It gives the skin a medium coverage and easily covers minor pigmentation, redness, blemishes and scars, and if needed, it can be built up to a fuller coverage where needed yet without looking cakey or heavy. Darker marks and blemishes however still need the help of a concealer.

The foundation feels very comfortable and moisturising on the skin, and gives the skin a nice even semi-matte look with a nice glow, and surprisingly it lasts more or less all day on my combination skin, without changing colour or settling into fine lines. In saying that, this is during winter, so I am not sure how it would perform during summer when my skin generally gets a little greasier.

The foundation blended...

I was trialling the colour Sand, which is a touch on the dark side for my medium beige skintone, but being in the midst of winter, I am also at my palest right now, and come spring and I get a little colour in my face, the colour will be perfect.


In regards to the claim that the foundation will give you ‘Better Looking Skin in 3 weeks’ I am not too sure, as I am yet to see any significant improvement, however, the way I see it, is that it can only be a bonus that it contains anti-ageing ingredients and cares for my skin as I wear it. And as an added bonus it also comes with SPF 20 to help protect the skin from the sun’s harsh rays.

Overall, I like this foundation and how it makes my skin look more even, yet without making it look too made up. It has a great coverage, as I am always struggling to get a foundation to stay put on my skin all, I really like the staying power too. At just $21.95 this a great bargain buy and I can easily see myself purchasing this again.

What do you think of this new foundation from Maybelline? What do you look for in a foundation?



  1. After reading this I think it may be a little drying for my skin....I have mature and super-dry skin, so a semi-matte probably isn't the best choice.
    But it does sound like a lovely foundation, I like foundations that give skin a glow and I know we're supposed to use a foundation that contains SPF - but I tend to choose foundations that don't...they seem to work better on my skin - not good I know...
    Thanks for the awesome review!

    1. Sadly I agree with the SPF in the foundation, and in moisturisers too, as I often suspect that they are the culprit in making my skin breakout. But this one works quite well with my combination skin, and is reasonably priced too!

  2. This sounds so promising! I'm a fan of Maybelline, so I'll definitely go in store and check this out.

    1. I am a huge fan too, the products are such great value, and what's even better is that they are often on great speacials too!
