Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation in "15 Ivory": Review and Swatches
Starting this September, the new Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation ($14.99 CAD) will be hitting the stores! Made with ACTYL-C, a nourishing vitamin extract and available in twelve different shades, the new SuperStay Beter Skin Foundation promises to improve skin in three weeks. So how well does it work, read all about it now........

Packaging:
The SuperStay Better Skin Foundation comes in a simple rectangular glass bottle. I'm very, very happy that the bottle comes with a pump dispenser. It makes application a lot more convenient and sanitary.

Formulation:
The Better Skin Foundation has a thick, viscous, almost cream-like formulation. Because of its thicker texture, the foundation doesn't spread and blend as well as more liquidy ones. However, the formulation sets quickly and the finish is very smoothing, reducing the appearance of blemish bumps and pores. The coverage is medium to high and the finish is pretty matte!
15 Ivory is similar to NW20, it has some fairly strong pink tones. The wear is very good, the formulation adheres nicely to the skin, unlike the recent Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation, which slid around the skin a lot and never felt like it properly set.

Overall:
This foundation provides good coverage and the finish is matte and smoothing. I love how quickly it sets without feeling drying or icky. The wear is also very impressive. I have only used this a few times so I can't speak on whether or not it has improved my skin. However, as far as it being a good foundation, I definitely approve!

Availability:
The SuperStay Better Skin Foundation from Maybelline are available in stores starting September 2015.
