There are times when I want to keep things simple and my usual go-tos are a good base and lip. Today, I’m going to share with you an amazing duo through this Maybelline Superstay review.
I love how makeup can conceal our imperfections. Yes, I said it. I appreciate the natural movement and all but I have problematic skin. I used to have an okay-ish skin with occasional breakouts but currently, my skin looks horrendous because of trying out different products.
Buying stuff on Lazada through the links in this website gains me a small commission at NO ADDITIONAL COST to you. Thanks for the support!
The selling point for me was when I saw Maybelline Superstay Foundation reviews on YouTube.
I thought I’ve already found a cheaper alternative to my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation through Covergirl Stay Fabulous but girl was I wrong.
So wrong in so many ways…
The Covergirl Stay Fabulous foundation has really good coverage but it doesn’t last and it is still quite pricey in my country. Retails at almost 800 PHP ($15) which doesn’t scream drugstore price at all.
The Maybelline Superstay Foundation has a very beautiful and distinct packaging. Shape is rectangular and made of glass bottle which delivers a premium feel.
Scent is very similar to the slight chemical whiff of Double Wear with a thick liquid consistency. Not as thick as cream though.
The bottle comes with a pump which is very hygienic and helps reduce product wastage.
Unlike with Double Wear, blending the Maybelline Superstay Foundation is easier as it doesn’t dry out quickly.
The only advantage with Double Wear is you’ll only need a minimal amount of product to achieve a full coverage.
I find that for my skin, I need to build up the Maybelline Superstay Foundation to about two times the amount I’d use from Double Wear.
It doesn’t really irk me, I just want to make this Maybelline Superstay review precise.
Additional thing you may not like is it darkens when it oxidizes.
I got the Maybelline Superstay Foundation in Classic Ivory and it becomes 2 shades darker after 10 minutes~. I’m glad that it oxidizes almost instantaneously because it’ll be very easy to determine which shade is right for you when you peruse the stores.
Just get 2 shades lighter than your face skin tone and you’re all set.

I didn’t blend the foundation above, I just posted the photo for you to see how it oxidizes.
Nothing can beat Maybelline Superstay Foundation when it comes to price+availability+coverage.
I highly recommend it and I find that it’s best applied with a damp beauty sponge.
Retails at only 499 PHP and is well-worth every penny.
Shade Range: 3/5
PS: I have combination skin, dominantly dry and a little oily on the t-zone. My t-zone didn’t oil up for about 6 hours and it didn’t emphasize the flakes on the sides of my nose. It also didn’t crack on my cheek area which is dry.
