My skin is just not that great. I'll admit that. Unfortunately I don't look as amazing as some of these other ladies do without makeup. My skin is pretty red, blotchy and not exactly evenly toned. But hey, that's life and I'm not ashamed of my skin. But, when I find a foundation that helps mask all of that and gives me a flawless finish, I stick with it! That's how I felt when I found the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin.
I picked one of the lightest shades (I'm not too sure if it's actually the lightest in the range) and it suted my skin tone perfectly. I love that it's medium to high coverage, depending on how much you like to apply. I like to keep it light so that it's more of a medium coverage; which covers all my redness and spots but still keeps my natural beauty spots showing and doesn't look too cakeface.
The lightest concealer available is a little bit darker than the foundation, which is a bit frustrating. Fellow pale girls will understand the annoyance of knowing that your concealer should be "at least two shades lighter than your foundation" which is practically impossible to find. Where the white concealer at? In saying that though, I actually fell in love with this concealer. With concealer and foundation, you are definitely hitting your full coverage peak without looking cakeface; a look I save for when I need to feel super fabulous.

As you can see, the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin foundation truly does give a beautiful matte finish. I finished off my makeup with a powder and illuminator which gave me a little more of a shine.
This foundation claims to make your skin better after three weeks of using it, by essentially making your skin look smoother. My skin has definitely been smoother lately, especially as I have been using this on and off for a few months now, but I can't say for sure if that's all because of Maybelline though!
I'm really happy with this foundation and concealer duo. I find this foundation is comfortable enough to wear without primer and doesn't block my pores at all; and also lasts all day long, particularly when I pair it with the concealer. The Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin foundation also contains SPF 14 to give you that little bit of extra sun protection.
This has very quickly become one of my favourites, as it's perfect for day to day wear. I have the confidence that this will look amazing all day, no matter how stressful work may get!
