Name: Superstay Silky Foundation
From Maybelline’s website:
Flawless-looking coverage & silky-soft feel
Dual chamber dispenser combines 2 formulas: colour coverage & silky feel extender
Lasts for up to 16 hours
What I liked:
– long lasting foundation
– left my skin silky
– has SPF
What I didn’t like:
– only 6 shades available
– the pump is quite tricky to use
I am always looking for a new foundation. I haven’t found one that does exactly what I want yet, so when a new one is released, I’m curious to try it. My latest buy was Maybelline Superstay Silky Foundation. I have very fair skin so I purchased “Ivory”, which is the fairest of the six shades available. Unfortunately when I tried it on I realised it was too dark for my skin (about 2-3 shades darker than my natural skin colour!) and it didn’t look right on me at all. In fact, I looked a bit orange!
I’m not really that fond of the packaging either. It features a dual chamber dispenser that’s tricky to use. You need to pump the same quantity of both the foundation and the silky extender (which I find very difficult to do) on your hand and blend, which can get a bit messy.
Application, on the other hand, is really easy and smooth. The product provides great medium coverage, evening out the skintone and covering minor imperfections such as blemishes and dark circles. Yet, despite the coverage, it gives your skin a natural look. It really leaves your skin silky, which I loved!
Maybelline claims that Superstay Silky Foundation can last up to 16 hours. I haven’t used it for that long. I only wear for 13 hours or so, but the foundation lastes for all that time. There’s no need to reapply it so it really is quite long-lasting.

Overall, this foundation delivers what it promises: great coverage, impressive staying power, and silky soft skin. However with only 6 shades available not everyone will be able to find a colour that matches their skin tone. People who have very fair skin, like me, should stay away from this foundation or they will risk looking orange!
