Better Skin in 3 Weeks?♥

I find it so hard testing new foundations because I have oily skin and they tend to just slip and slide around. When buying a new foundation, I always try to buy one for oily skin but that isn't guaranteed to happen every time. One day on a whim, I bought the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation for £5 as I needed a new foundation and I was drawn in my the pump. I hadn't heard of the foundation and at the time it was new, and for £5, what harm would it be?

First thing I noticed was that the shade range wasn't very diverse - I reckon there was only about five or six shades to choose from. I struggled to pick a shade as I felt the lightest shade wasn't even light enough as it felt a bit pink toned. I went for 005 light beige which is a decent shade after you've powdered your makeup. It claims to even skin tone instantly, which I reckon it does. My skin looks airbrushed and flawless, so who can complain. I love how even it looks - I apply it with a damp makeup sponge - and the coverage is pretty high. 

As already stated, the highlight for me is the pump. This is the only foundation I own with a pump and I find it extremely helpful! I know exactly how much to pump out, and this means that I don't waste anything. However, one other thing this foundation claims to do was ensure you have better skin after three weeks of using this. I do believe this is a bit of a myth as how could you possibly have better skin from using a foundation? I can't say I've seen any improvements in my skin from using this, sadly, but apart from that, I do love the foundation.

I have been satisfied with this foundation. I feel it's lightweight enough to wear on a daily basis but it also has decent coverage. I've been using it religiously lately for concealer because I'm running low on them, and this has been pretty good at covering those dark circles! I do find that I need to set this foundation or else I'll appear shiny throughout the day but I think this is due to my skin type.

Have you tried this foundation?

  1. Really like this foundation but I agree with the shade ranges. They should make more available because it would be amazing if it didn't have to mix it. You actually just reminded me about it but now that spring is here I will bring it back out again.

    1. I don't mix mine simply because I sometimes can't be bothered as I can sort it out with powder, bronzer etc but I do thing more shades are required! x

  2. Loved this review, unfortunately, there isn't a shade that matches me either! x However, kudos for the pump, I like foundations with pumps! x
    Lots of love,

  3. I love this foundation but the shade range is so scarce! I had this about a year ago and it only matched my skin because I was tanned during the summer :( loved it though and I really did see the difference in my skin from using it! Fab review Jasmine!!! Must catch up soon xxx

  4. I have such dry skin so I don't know how well this would work for my skin type but it may work if I slap a load of moisturiser on before hand haha! Lovely post girl xx

  5. I've always found Maybelline's shade range to be very limited which is a shame. Always a little too orange for me too.

  6. Nice product, but I think for my very dry skin isn't gonna be that good. Thank you for sharing :D

  7. I have not tried this foundation and I have patchy dryness, so I'm afraid it wouldn't work for me.

    1. Just use loads of moisturiser and hydrating primer beforehand even? x

  9. I've heard some good things about this foundation, however it was in the U.S packaging one so I'm not sure if the Australian version is different to the U.S version. I've been eyeing this foundation to purchase next in the drugstore, so maybe I'll give it a shot next time. Lovely review! x
