Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation Review ~Week Three of Three

I have used several different types of Maybelline products in the past (I absolutely love their mascaras!), but I’ve never used one of their foundations. So the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin™ Foundation was my first experience. *Spoiler alert*I have to say, the more I use this foundation the more I like it!  I prefer a light, matte finish, medium coverage foundation, and that is exactly what this foundation provides.

This Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin foundation goes on easily, looks great, and wears well all day. It never irritated my skin nor caused any new breakouts.

As I said in my previous post about the Better Skin Foundation, I don’t have many skin issues as it is, so I was not really expecting any miracle results.  While using this foundation over the last 3 weeks, I haven’t noticed any reduction in the “appearance of spots, dullness and uneveness,” nor have I noticed that my skin is “brighter, more even and stress-free.”  What I have noticed is that this foundation goes on easily, looks great, and wears well all day.  As with some foundations, it never irritated my skin nor caused any new breakouts.

A few things I have noticed about this foundation over the last few weeks…
When first applying, it has a funny funky almost burnt plastic smell to it.  While the smell is weird, it fades quickly and isn’t really a big issue for me.
It doesn’t work well with all primers.  I have a few different primers, and some it works fine with and others not at all.  This foundation works well enough on its own that it doesn’t even need a primer at all.  So once again not really a big issue for me.
It doesn’t apply well with a beauty sponge.  I found that using a foundation stippling brush or my fingers works the best.  It is quick an easy to apply with my fingers, so this is actually a plus for me.

So, after a few weeks of using this foundation:
Did this foundation live up to all the claims of better skin in 3 weeks…well…they give a lot of claims for a foundation to do all on its own, so I’m going to with no, but…
Would I repurchase this foundation for myself…Definitely!
Would I recommend this foundation to you…Definitely!

**I was sent this  full sized foundation in a VoxBox from Influenster for free to test out for 3 week for the #betterskinchallenge, even so, my opinion is completely my own.**
