EMPTIES: Maybelline Super Stay Makeup 24 HR Foundation (Caramel)

The first foundation I fell in love with was Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse.  After many failed attempts with liquid foundation, I found love in Maybelline's mousse.  However, when I returned to liquid foundation, I discovered how to make it look like I wasn't an oily face freak.  But I avoided the Super Stay foundation because I thought Revlon Colorstay was good enough.

I was wrong...

Now with most drugstore foundations, this one is not without it's fault.  The color selection for darker woman is insulting.  I am the second to the darkest shade.  With 12 shades in the range, there are only 2 that fall under the "dark" catagory.  While caramel is not the exact color for my skin tone, it is fairly close especially during the winter months when the sun isn't baking my skin.

The staying power is amazing:  I've never worn the foudnation for 24 hours, but I would think it is safe to say that this product will last you all day. 

The biggest complaint (other than the shade range) that I have about this foundation is how much I waste.  Ten dollars may not be the most I've ever spent on a product, but it really irritates me how quickly I go through this foundation.  Due to the lack of a pump, I have to pour the substance out and ALWAYS pour too much.  I could run out of this foundation in a month!

Overall, the product was good and did it's job. But the ultimate question is would I repurchase it? And I would have to say.........


I love that this foundation lasts and really adheres to my skin.  While the color leaves a bit to desire, $10 isn't a loss on this foundation.  Plus, Maybelline products are always going on sale at the drugstore. 

If you are fortunate to fall within the color range, I would definitely recommend this product.  I love it, it has definitely replaced my short love for Revlon Colorstay.
