Maybelline SuperStay + GIVEAWAY

Brought to you by Nuffnang and Maybelline

Over the last few weeks I have been testing out the NEW Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Range.  Its Maybelline's first vitamin enriched long wear foundation and concealer with skin improving Actyl-C formula.

So what is Actyl-C? The same question did cross my mind! It's actually a vitamin derivative which leaves skin feeling energized, fresh, healthy and radiant.  It also promotes skin regeneration, so much so that the word is that in just three weeks of using Maybelline's SuperStay Better Skin range you will see smoother skin and more even skin tone!

The foundation is lightweight and comfortable, while giving full all day flawless coverage.  The SPF14 is another bonus feature of this foundation. For a long time I've used BB cream, but I loved the coverage of this foundation combined with the concealer and a powder, plus it still looked great at the end of the day.  The concealer reduces those dark under eye circles beautifully- a must when I've spent the night up with bub. The numbering of the shades across the SuperStay range is consistent, which makes it really easy to get a great match between concealer, foundation and powder.

I particularly love that this range goes above and beyond your regular makeup, actually improving your skin!! Great for those of us for whom multitasking is a must.

There are eight shades of the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation ($21.95); I'm the 021 Nude during winter which is the fourth swatch from the left in the pics above.  And two tones of the Maybeline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer ($14.95); I'm the 02 Light.

    A foundation that improves your skin - what a great idea!

  3. I like the sound of lightweight. For as long as I remember, foundations are always heavy and cakey but this is not and that is appealing!!

  4. Knowing there’s a foundation that actually benefits my skin
    Is most appealing for the situation I’m in
    As I age, my skin’s looking worse for wear
    It really is annoying and leaves me with despair
    I like that it has SPF, as well as Actyl C
    All the right ingredients for a better looking me!
    Nowknowing about this foundation I’ll definitely try this out
    It’ll help boost my confidence again, of that I have no doubt!

  5. I love BB cream, but find it runs, especially in the heat. I would love something that is great for my skin. But would stay all day, no matter the season!

  6. Thanks for all the tips! Sounds interesting! : )


  7. I'm intrigued with Actyl-C now. I'm getting older and my skin just ain't quite like it used to be so anything that is going to help improve dryness (becoming more and more of a problem lately) and give that bright, fresh look is something I need to try!


  8. The vitamins.

  9. My face is often dry like the Sahara,
    So I feel this could be just the thing to prevent lines and cracks like the Grand Canyon,
    And block those harsh Bondi Beach UV rays,
    And hopefully feel as hydrating as the Nile,
    Then I can really feel confident and smile!

    Thanks x

  10. You had me at flawless and improving your skin,I am a tad more mature than you but I still get bags under my eyes and my skin is sensitive,so this sounds like a great choice! Lisa Mckenzie (

  11. You had me at flawless and good for your skin and covering up under eye bags,looks like a great foundation to try! Lisa Mckenzie

  12. Flawless all day coverage is what caught my eye,
    This is one product I'm definitely going to try.
    I'm not huge on make up but like to look bright,
    With a good base coat it instantly feels right.
    A little highlight on my cheeks and lippy makes the look a win,
    Good foundation is the key to gorgeous looking skin!

  13. Your review has me very excited to try Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation! I generally tend to find foundations heavy and the colour just not quite right, but this sounds like something different! It appeals to me because I wish my current mineral powder had more coverage. This seems to tick all the boxes of what is important to me in face beauty - nourishing, SPF, colour choice, and light weight! Can't wait to get my hands on some!

  14. i forgot to put my email address on my comment - : )

  15. I like that it is a lightweight product and yet gives all day coverage. Sounds like an all round great product! Definately want to try it.
