While I did receive the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation complimentary for testing purposes, I will always give my complete and honest opinion. Here is my first update on my week one of the #betterskinchallenge.
According to the Maybelline website Superstay Better Skin™ Foundation is a “Longwear foundation that improves skin’s appearance every minute you’re in it. With the antioxidant power of Actyl C, a more durable form of vitamin C. For all skin types. Medium to full coverage. Superstay Better Skin Foundation gives an all-day flawless coverage and better-looking skin in 3 weeks. The foundation reduces the appearance of spots, dullness and uneveness and gives you a brighter, more even and stress-free skin.”
That is a lot of claims for a foundation! So I am very interested to see what results I get. Who wouldn’t want brighter, more even and stress-free skin!
My skin type is fair to medium, normal to combo skin. Since it is the summer I am a bit darker (if you want to call it that ;-)) than I naturally would be in the winter and spring. As I mentioned, I received this foundation for consideration so I didn’t choose the shade myself. I was sent the shade Porcelain 10, which would probably be my winter shade. I have to admit, because of the wrong shade, at first it was a bit of a struggle for me to figure out exactly how to make this foundation work. After a few days of using the wrong shade, I went to CVS and asked if I could exchange it for a different shade. (side note: CVS is so great about returning any beauty products that you are not 100% happy with even if it has been opened and used a bit.) I exchanged it for the shade classic ivory 20. Now that I have the correct shade, I have really been liking it.
I have been wearing it every day for about a week and a half. While I don’t actually have any major skin issues to begin with, I do have some spots and uneveness that I would love to see reduced. In the last 10 days that I have been wearing the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation, I can’t say that I have seen any major changes to my skin, but I will continue to test it out for the full three weeks and see if there are any overall improvements.
