Having always been a fan of the Loreal Infallible Matte foundation, I was not actually in need of anything new. It was a visit to my hairdressers that prompted me to change my foundation. My hairdresser and I were actually discussing this blog and I asked her which foundation she used. “Maybelline Superstay,” she replied with no doubt in her mind. It was one of the best she had used and was fairly full coverage. 👐💥💷 Kerching to me, I thought at the time. I’m always up for finding new foundations. Off I popped into Boots where luckily for me, there was a 3 for 2 offer on so I also got a nice lacquer gloss thing and the Lash Sensational mascara I had heard loads about.
What I noticed first was the great shade range for pale skin. I’m literally like Casper the ghost but I matched to the Mabelline with ease. I’m a shade 10 ivory if you’re interested.
So below is a picture of my wearing the foundation, applied with a damp beauty blender.
It creates a nice base but nothing super special! I thought he beauty blender sucks up an awful lot of product.
Over the weekend, I got my hands on a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I had one before but misplaced it and I knew using a brush with this foundation would be a game changer. Below is a picture of my make up this morning, applied with the brush.
The base seems more flawless, I used less product and I was able to buff it into my skin faster. I found I needed no concealer thus way either.
This foundation has a reputation for longevity. If you’re as careful with your skin as I am, you certainly need to prep your face. I used the Boots Glycerin and Rosehip cleanser and toner. It’s really old fashioned but it’s excellent for making the skin feel as soft as a cloud. Following this, I used the Benefit Porefessional primer. The next picture will attest to the long life of the product as well as the need for a good base.
Ignore me writing on my hands or the state of my eye make up. That entire face is 13.5 hours old and the base is still 👌👌👌
I highly recommend this product if you like high coverage, light feel foundation. Its certainly made me want to check out more Maybelline cosmetics! ❤
