I’m really excited to be sharing my thoughts on the brand spanking new Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin range with you.  Want to know why I’m so excited?  It lives up to its name.  Yes, really.

It is a long lasting foundation that looks as good at the end of the day as when freshly applied in the morning.  The active ingredients have actually given me better skin in the four weeks I’ve been using it.  My skin is smoother and plumper.  I even think my pigmentation has lightened.

I haven’t used foundation in a while because I haven’t been happy with the finish and results.  I’ve been using a tinted moisturiser, concealer and powder combo – it gives me a great look but requires regular touch ups.  Who’s got time for that?  I keep lipgloss in my car so I can apply it on the run.  I don’t have time to redo my face during the day!

The Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin range sounded too good to be true and I have to admit I approached it with some trepidation.  When I saw how easily it smoothed onto my skin, I was impressed.  When I saw how good my skin looked after applying, I was impressed.  When I saw how good my skin looked at the end of a busy day, I was uber impressed!

What Kimba Likes says

This is a sponsored post.  I’m upfront about that.  I’m also upfront about my Keeping it Real Policy.  Part of my sponsored post policy is that if I wouldn’t buy the product again with my money, then I won’t share it on Kimba Likes.  I will turn down cold hard cash if the product I’m reviewing doesn’t pass the Kimba Likes test.

I’m thinking I’m going to have to change my blog name to Kimba Loves.  I’m serious.  I adore this foundation.  My skin looks better, I’m saving time and my skin looks flawless All. Day. Long! My makeup seriously lasts all day long.  My face looks as good in the morning as it does in the evening.

The Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin foundation feels like I’m not wearing makeup but gives me a really good coverage.  My skin has a dewy look, whilst providing a really good coverage that enhances my skin, not hides it.

I’ve tried long lasting foundations in the past.  They either seem to clog my skin, don’t last, or leave me looking mask-like. I’ve tried foundations previously that claim to have skin improving benefits.  Most of these tend to be very light formulations that don’t give me enough coverage or only look good if I reapply throughout the day.

Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin foundation not only gives me a flawless long lasting makeup look, it has improved the look of my skin too.  My skin appears smoother, brightened and glows.  My skin looks plumper because of the hydrating effect of the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin foundation.

The concealer in the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin range is very good. It is a slightly more liquid consistency than the creme concealers I usually prefer.  However, the Actyl-C and other skin improving ingredients create a concealer that provides excellent coverage for my under eye dark circles and hormonal pigmentation.

Oh and did I mention that it doesn’t crease? Is there anything more annoying than a concealer applied to disguise fine lines around the eyes that creases and makes it look like you have even more wrinkles and fine lines?

Maybelline Superstay Better Skin | how to apply

After giving my skincare and primer time to sink into my skin, I apply a pump or two of Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin foundation to the back of my hand and use my foundation brush to pop it onto my skin in strategic spots.  I swipe a little across my cheeks, my forehead and my chin.

Then I use my foundation brush to buff the foundation into my skin, working from the centre of my face outwards.  This ensures that I get the coverage where I need it – on my T-zone and around my mouth – whilst not concentrating too much colour around my hairline, where I just don’t need makeup.

Next up, I pop a little Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin concealer onto my fingertips to warm it a little.  Using my concealer brush, I pat some product under my eyes in a triangle shape.  I smooth it into the skin using my concealer brush.

I follow it with some translucent powder applied on a big fluffy brush all over my face. That’s it!  Just leave it until you need to take it off at the end of the day.  No need to touch up or blot or reapply throughout the day.

I’ve even gone out again in the evening without touching up my face.  I’ve reapplied a little blush and highlighter, but no need to touch my face base.  Impressive huh?

    Ohhh, I’m always on the lookout for a great foundation at a reasonable price. So I’m going to go and check this out and give it a try. It looks super-duper on you by the way 🙂 (Thanks for commenting over at Redcliffe Style on my own err ‘style’ today! I appreciate that x)ReplyCancel

    For a woman that is 10 years older than you Kim-Marie you had me at flawless,hydrating and glowing,just what my skin needs at this time of my life and also concealing my designer bags under my eyes!ReplyCancel

    The Flawless all day coverage is just what I’m looking for when I go out and want to hide the black circles under my eyes after a night tending to my baby. Sounds like a fab foundation. 🙂ReplyCancel

    All the benefits appeal but the ones that appeal the most are the all day coverage, plumping effect and reducing redness. I believe it works as my BB cream mainstay is Maybelline’s BB cream which is dewy fresh all day. I try other brands but always come back to Maybelline as others are drying or make me look older! The foundation would give me more coverage on thedays and nights that I need it.ReplyCancel

    Oh my giddy aunt, where do I start? I think the smooth skin and the all day coverage are what tick my boxes. So to speak. I would love to try this out!ReplyCancel

    Cease the dreaded Crease?? I’m in!ReplyCancel

  • Claire Chadwick - 11 September 2014 - 11.57 am

    Ok, I NEED this product! I am not happy with my current foundation. I love that Maybelline have created a product that looks after and nourishes your skin {instead of clogging and blemishing it} whilst being a smooth cover-up. It ticks all the boxes in my eyes. WONDERFUL!

  • Michelle V - 11 September 2014 - 10.45 am

    Knowing there’s a foundation that benefits my skin
    Is most appealing for the situation I’m in
    As I age, my skin’s looking worse for wear
    It really is annoying and leaves me with despair
    But now about this foundation I’ll definitely try this out
    It’ll help boost my confidence again, of that I have no doubt!ReplyCancel
