Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation

We have ‘weekday’ foundations (‘make me flawless, please, and I don’t mind paying an arm and a leg for that) – and ‘weekend’ foundations. And this has just become our favourite Saturday/Sunday base.  Actually, coverage with this is pretty good, too – it’s definitely excellent at banishing high colour – but what sets this apart is that it’s as easy to wear as your comfiest jeans.  In fact, once you’ve got it on, you won’t know it’s there – which Maybelline tell us is down to ‘Flex technology’: a combination of Flex resin and Flex wax, which adapts to skin’s movement, together with the gloriously name ‘elastomer cushioning agents’.

A load of PR hype, you might think (we certainly did before we applied it) - but no, this really is weightless, while making skin look darned fantastic, thanks to light-reflective pigments which even out skintone and actually brightens dull skin.

Eight shades (including a pretty dark one) – and there’s a concealer two (just two shades for that).  But you know what?  We think this does the job just fine, without.

If it plays its cards right, SuperStay Better Skin might just get promoted.  To weekdays…
