The product

Guilty of hitting the snooze button too many times every morning? Then you’re probably very familiar with on-the-go makeup application – it’s no simple task. The good news is that there’s a jazzy new makeup multitasker on the beauty block, and it’s about to make your morning rush *infinitely* easier, and your makeup bag WAY lighter!

The Maybelline New York Superstay Multi-Use Foundation Stick is a multitasking makeup product helps simplify your entire makeup routine. It’s a true all-rounder that can be used as a foundation, concealer, contour, highlighter or touch-up tool – all in one convenient, portable stick. 

What’s more, it has a pointed blender sponge for easy and quick application at home or for the classic morning bus/train/uber makeup application sesh. The creamy, lightweight formula goes on matte and offers full coverage that’ll last for up to 24 hours - so you don’t have to worry about those midday touch-ups.

Our Review Crew® team put this product to the test.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Maybelline New York Superstay Multi-Use Foundation Stick:

Its full coverage: Members loved how the product offered high coverage and a matte finish, with many commenting on how it effectively evened out their skin tone and effortlessly covered redness and age spots. Reviewers also said that the product was easy to build up without looking cakey or thick.

How easy it is to apply: Our Review Crew® members found this foundation stick quick and easy to apply, with many saying that the addition of a blending sponge on the end made it convenient when on-the-go. Members also mentioned that the formula was creamy and smooth, making it glide seamlessly over the skin and blend in for a flawless finish 

How long-lasting the formula is: Reviewers were impressed by the long-wearing formula, with many commenting on how it lasted all day without creasing or fading. One of our members said, “I only needed to powder my T-zone and it lasted a good 8-10 hours".

The verdict

“The foundation has a creamy, buttery feel and blends in well, without settling into any pores or fine lines. I did have dry flaky skin a few times and the foundation didn't settle or exaggerate it at all, which I was relieved about.”
“[It] glides on to the skin very smoothly, and also comes in handy with a small blending sponge on the other end, definitely great for on the go! This product also works really well with oily skin, as it finishes off with a glowy and matte finish. I would definitely recommend this product to others as it lasted me all day!”
C Truong
“The foundation went on smoothly, the applicator sponge worked well and left a lovely finish, good coverage for my skin and not over the top. This is a great product to pop in your handbag for touch-ups, although I found it lasted very well throughout the day and didn't need to touch-up. I also really like that you can use different shades to contour and highlight.”
