Review Crew®: Maybelline New York Superstay™ 24HR Makeup

Our reviewers put the long-lasting Maybelline’s foundation to the test

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / May 25 2017

Foundation is an essential step for creating a flawless base, especially one that can withstand heat, sweat, and humidity.

We selected a group of women from the Review Crew® panel with a range of skin tones and types to try Maybelline’s long-lasting foundation, Superstay 24HR Makeup, to see if it really did live up to its claims.

The Review Crew® verdict:

After trialling the foundation, the Review Crew® were pleased with the foundation's staying power, with many stating that it stayed put for several hours.

While members raved about its natural-looking finish, some did mention that the foundation was hard to blend, especially around uneven areas like the nose.

Those that previously shied away from long-wearing formulas stated that it also felt fresh on the skin all day, and the medium coverage didn’t cake on the face. Many also mentioned that the product was a great tool for hiding pigmentation and freckles, and that the SPF-infused formula was a highlight.

As a working mum, I need a foundation that only needs to be applied once and last all day. The product resonates to its product name ‘Superstay’ - it lasted ALL day.

The foundation blended easily into my skin, it felt light, and went on very easily. Worked great on my combination skin. A small amount of it can cover quite a large area like a full coverage foundation, and with a bit of concealer on flaws and some powder to set my face, I achieved a flawless full coverage look.

This foundation is great! It lasted all day and has great coverage. The foundation isn’t drying and gives you a great finish, so it’s good for all skin types.
