REVIEW | MAYBELLINE SUPER STAY 24HR LIQUID FOUNDATION


A few months ago I got the Maybelline Super Stay 24H Fresh Look Longwear Foundation in Fawn (£9). I work nine hour days during the week so once I apply my foundation at 7am I want it to last pretty well until the very end of the day which for me is usually around midnight or 1am which is when I do my full skincare routine and remove every trace of makeup. Even though, 24 hour wear is a big claim I was definitely intrigued and had high hopes for this foundation, as soon as I saw the advert I was instantly interested and kept a look out for it. I have been using it for a few months now and intended to upload this review a lot earlier, but better late than never, right?


The foundation claims to give "a fresh look for up to 24 hours: no colour-shifting, which I guess means oxidising, dulling or fading; non-transfer, so won't come off; breathable and comfortable. All of these claims are pretty much exactly what I look for in a foundation. I want something comfortable, not heavy and transfer proof. A transfer proof foundation is literally all I want from life. I have oily/combination skin and in the morning especially when I am tired af I feel like I really need the help. My general preference for foundations is a semi-matte (so not flat), longwearing, medium coverage foundation that is easy to blend and feels like nothing or very little on the skin. 


The colour Fawn is a shade or so too light for me but I can make it work as long as I take it down my neck. I find this foundation really brings it with the coverage, as I mentioned, in the mornings I am tired I look like trash and I just want to make myself look better ASAP. So I apply a pump of this foundation, blend it out with a stippling brush and by the time I am halfway through the day and catch my reflection in a mirror I am like whoa. I used way too much, I look like a weird plastic doll. Less is definitely more with this product. The formula itself is thin and easy to blend, it sets itself well and doesn't feel tacky even before I have set it. The finish is not matte on my skin, I would say it is more semi-matte or satin but that could just be my natural oils. I use half a pump of foundation now and really spend time working it into the skin. My go-to method for application is a stippling brush as I think a sponge would just give too much coverage and I am not into that for every day makeup.


You can see it partially blended out above and you can see it fully worked into the skin of my hand below. I really like this foundation, it doesn't oxidise on me (I almost wish it did) and it lasts so so well throughout the day. It isn't transfer-proof but even when a bit comes off usually on my fingers or the lid of a takeout coffee cup it doesn't remove the foundation completely. It is still there and even at midnight I still have a healthy amount of coverage. Throughout the day, it does get a little dewy especially in my T zone but a quick blot fixes that immediately. Overall if you are looking for a longlasting but not super matte foundation, this could be a good one for you. A lot of people seem to find it cakey but I haven't had that problem, the trick I think is using very little and blending really well which even then takes no time at all because of the thin consistency. Although it is what I consider to be a full coverage foundation it doesn't feel heavy on my skin at all. 


Above, you can see what it looks like properly blended out and it just gives a really nice, perfected look to the skin that I adore. I do really like this foundation and I will probably repurchase it, I just hope I can find a better colour match. So far, all the liquid Maybelline foundations have worked really well on me.

  1. Lovely review! I'm always amazed by full coverage foundations which still feel lightweight on the skin! The longevity sounds very impressive as well!

  3. That does look nice! Im a dry skin, but I think with a hydrating primer underneath I could possibly get away with it?

    1. I think so, it doesn't have a totally matte finish and it didn't cling to any dry patches on my skin so I think it should work on dry skin as well as long as you prep with the right products. Thank you for reading x

  5. I think this foundation was discontinued or at least I no longer see it sold in stores here. I might be wrong though but will check again.

    1. It's a pretty new release for the UK? It was advertised a few weeks ago that's why I went to pick it up so maybe it was released in the US first (ages ago probably) and is only now being launched in the UK? I have no idea x

  8. This is a lovely thorough review! It sounds like a great foundation, perfect for everyday use and it looks like it blends really nicely from the swatch on your hand. Foundation shades can be a little tricky, sometimes I'll get the lightest shade just to be safe and it's way too pale & makes me look like a zombie, other times I think ok so maybe I'll go up a shade and "Vanilla" turns out to be a light shade of orange/yellow! So annoying aha, lovely post :-)

  10. When it comes to a drugstore foundation, Maybelline is my go-to choice! Always giving the dewy, yet light finish. I would definitely love to give this one a try! :)
