Im quite a big fan of Maybellines Satin Finish foundation, so when they released a new foundation, 24 Hour Super Stay, I was quite excited to give it a try to see what it was like. Its recived quite a few good reviews with fellow bloggers, which also made me more eager to try it. Unfortunately though my review isn't that good.
When I first purchased this, I ended up buying the wrong shade. I went for Ivory as Ivory in Satin Finish is a good match for me, sadly though Ivory is 24 Hour Super Stay was well to dark, so I ended up picking up another shade in Light Beige.
Maybelline say: "SuperStay™ 24HR Makeup stays comfortable and looks naturally flawless all day. Micro-Flex formula provides 24-hour wear and No Transfer. Withstands heat, sweat and humidity. Oil-free, dermatologist tested, fragrance-free. Suitable for all skin types".
Upon application the first thing I noticed is that it is very similar in texture to Revlon Colourstay (which I love for full coverage) however this is a lot more harder to blend and I also found that its really thick, a lot thicker than Colourstay and it literally clung to every little dry patch that was apparent on my face. I have normal combination skin and my skin is not overly dry, Its definitely not dry where it is noticable with any other foundation that I use, but with this I get the impression that for the whole flawless look, you would have to have near perfect skin, which unfortunately I don't have. Unlike Colourstay I wouldn't say it was buildable, if not careful, it will give the whole cakey look to your skin. It dries to a matte finish and made my complexion look very dull. I was even scared to add my powder afterwards, because I knew it would cake. With regards to staying power, it did last on me a good 8 hours, so they are spot on with the claim about staying power.
Would I recommend? If you have normal combination skin, oily around the tzone but dry in places too then I would give this a miss. I can imagine it would work well for really oily skin though as be much easier to blend etc. I'll be sticking with Revlon Colourstay for full coverage foundation.
