Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Skin-Transforming Foundation ($9.98) is available in a nice wide range of 12 shades. I found this at my local Wal-mart and chose my usual shade, Ivory.
Ivory is the second lightest color in the line and it matches me perfectly. I was glad to see that this foundation comes packaged in a sturdy glass bottle and comes with a pump.
I find that I need two pumps for my entire face and I like it best when applied with my damp Beauty Blender. The results are amazing! I’m really loving this one!
Better Skin has medium to full coverage and is buildable without looking caked on. It has a beautiful natural looking finish that just looks like flawless skin.
I’d consider this foundation to have a demi-matte finish. It’s not completely matte but it doesn’t look dewy or glowing at all.
I have been able to get a full days wear from Better Skin when I use a good oil controlling primer first. It’s not good at controlling oil but it’s not too bad either.
If I don’t start with a good primer, my t-zone does get shiny after about 4 hours. It doesn’t break down or slide around my face though so I just need to blot and re-powder mid day. Not a biggie for me.
Besides being oil free and containing a broad spectrum SPF, Better Skin foundation is supposed to give you…well…better skin. It claims to reduce the appearance of spots, bumps, dullness and redness for overall better looking skin in 3 weeks.
I’ve only been wearing this for a little over a week so I can’t comment on those claims. However, I haven’t had any problems with this foundation breaking me out at all.
