Turns out brightened, radiant skin is just a tint away

And it’s all thanks to Maybelline New York’s vitamin C-infused formula…

The product

PSA: it’s time to step away from the skin care routine. Okay, that's too far. We definitely need some skin care ingredients in our routine. But we’ve just found the lightweight (yet buildable) skin tint that's here to shake up your makeup game. 

Yep, big call. Especially considering there’s a new skin care-makeup-hybrid coming on the market basically every other day. But this one has snuck in one of our (worst) kept secrets to radiant, brightened skin. So are you ready to kick dull and drab to the curb? Good, because this vitamin C skin tint is here to help. 

The Maybelline New York Super Stay Up to 24HR Skin Tint has some big promises to fulfil in just its name. With all the skin tints on the market, Maybelline New York needed to come out with something different. And boy did they ever. So, 24 hour wear. Look, it’s been a while since we chose to stay up and out of our beds for over 24 hours, but if you’re up for the challenge then put it to the test. Because if Maybelline New York’s other SuperStay products are anything to go by, it’s pretty well budge-proof (and sweat-proof, in fact). 

But what makes the ‘tint’ aspect any different? Well it’s infused with vitamin C, our go-to ally for radiance. Although it’s known at times to be too harsh on sensitive skin, Maybelline have ensured that this tint is gentle enough for all skin types. So everyone gets to enjoy the brightened ‘your-skin-but-better’ feel to this foundation. 

The next point of note is how different it feels to your typical tint. Applied with a dropper (très skin care of it no?) this tint is actually buildable. Yep, designed with a slightly thicker formula this tint is able to be built up all while still maintaining that ultra-comfortable feel. 

All that’s left to do is pop on some highlight and read up on what the REVIEWcrew® members had to say about the illumination, lightweight effects…

The panel

BEAUTYcrew sent the Maybelline New York Super Stay Up to 24HR Skin Tint to a panel aged 18-35 looking for brightened, lightweight skin-perfection. 

The lowdown

The lightweight coverage: Telling you that a skin tint has a lightweight coverage is the beauty equivalent of ‘florals for spring’. We get it. But when we tell you our REVIEWcrew® members raved about the ‘second skin’-like finish, you’ll see why it was worth a mention. But just because the formula is ultra-comfortable with a barely there finish doesn’t mean that it’s not absolutely packed with skin-loving, longwearing ingredients. 

How longwearing the formula is: Which brings us on to the 24 hour elephant in the room. Did any of our members put the formula to the whole 24 hour test? Honestly, probably not, but we don’t blame them. Because for what it was worth they could see how steadfast the formula was, providing them with some seriously long-lasting coverage. 

The glowy radiant finish: Every so often you come across a makeup product that’s so perfectly infused with a heaping helping of skin care ingredients that you question whether or not you actually need to apply skin care today. Well, our REVIEWcrew® members can confirm. The gorgeous radiant, glowing complexion they had from extended use of this foundation is no joke. The vitamin C infusion works to brighten your skin in the moment and long after you’ve cleansed the day away.

“As someone who has only ever purchased high-end makeup products, this has been my go-to, everyday makeup tint and has now become a staple in my beauty regime! This serum formulation sits so nicely over my combination skin. I specifically love the fact that it does not accentuate my textured areas or any congestion/blemishes that appear on my face. In fact, I have found that the Vitamin C infused formulation has diminished the look of my acne scars and evened my complexion. The formula is super lightweight and very buildable – I have worn this alone as a tint for "no makeup-makeup" days and built it up and layered it for a medium-coverage, flawless base. I love how quick and easy this makes my makeup regime, as it blends flawlessly and is streak/cake free. Overall, such an amazing product – great short and long-term results at a super affordable price!”

“I loved how it covered all my imperfections including my deep acne scars. I don’t have any active acne but some very deep ice pick scars, and this skin tint covered up the scars just like that! They are still visible but I was amazed at how smooth my skin looked everyday, which gave me the confidence to step out. I am normally a high coverage foundation girl, so this was a big win! I love how glowy the skin tint made my skin, and how it dried down to a long-lasting almost matte finish. I barely had to set it down with powder for it to last all day. It also worked beautifully with my cream and powder products, with no creasing or lifting of any products. I was amazed at how long the product lasted on my skin! I am generally oily in my T-zone and usually foundation lifts off my nose by the end of the day. Not with this product!”

“The colour match was great. I’m quite pale and it didn’t oxidise on me at all. The finish is lovely! Just like flawless skin with a natural glow. It’s very lightweight while also buildable for extra coverage where you need it, and lasts a full day of wear without fading. I really enjoyed the concept of a foundation infused with vitamin c. While there wasn’t an immediate result, after several weeks of wear I have noticed a definite improvement in the radiance of my skin, similar to what I have seen when incorporating vitamin c into my routine in the past. I think that was the highlight for me! Overall it’s a great foundation for anyone after a comfortable foundation that will last all day without going full coverage. I find the price point to be competitive with other drugstore products and would definitely repurchase this one.”
