There is some new Maybelline makeup on the drugstore scene, and I’ve got all the details for you! Last week at CVS, I picked up the new Maybelline Super Stay Foundation & Total Temptation mascara. I absolutely LOVE the Super Stay Matte Ink lipsticks, so I was curious as to how this new foundation would preform.
Maybelline Super Stay Foundation and Total Temptation Mascara
First, let’s talk about the Super Stay Foundation. I chose the shade 110, which is the second lightest shade in the bunch. I was debating between this and the lightest shade, but I’m glad I chose this one because it’s a perfect match! There are 16 total shades in this foundation line. Maybelline claims that this foundation “delivers 24-hour wear for concentrated coverage and a flawless finish that doesn’t fade or shift all day.”
Well, I can tell you right now that I haven’t tested this foundation for the full 24 hours (lol), but it was great for the 10 hours that I did wear it. When first applied, the finish is semi-matte and a little dry looking. However, as time wore on the foundation seemed to meld with my skin’s natural oils and became semi-dewy looking. I actually like the finish better after a few hours of wear. It has medium to full coverage and I only have to do a tiny bit of “spot treating” with concealer when using this.
Next, let’s talk about the Total Temptation Mascara. I chose the shade Very Black, but it’s also available in Brownish Black and Blackest Black. Maybelline says that this mascara “builds on bold volume to create irresistibly soft, separated, and dense lashes.” It has a creamy, whipped formula that is infused with coconut extract.
I think that this mascara has medium “wetness” and is easy to control while applying to the lashes. Typically, I only use 1 coat with this, but I wanted to show you what 2 coats looked like. I had very minimal flaking and smudging (under eye transfer) after 10 hours of wear which is pretty good in my book. (I do usually get a bit less smudging in the colder months though.)
In the above photo, I have been wearing the Maybelline Super Stay foundation (and mascara) for about 5 hours. I am also wearing Tarte Graceful blush, Zoya Addie lipstick, and It Cosmetics Brow Power powder. All-in-all, I love the foundation! I think it works very well with my somewhat oily skin. The mascara is also nice, but I don’t think it’s an absolute must buy. In case you are wondering, my favorite drugstore mascara is the CoverGirl LashBlast Volume!
