Doing Drugstore: Maybelline SuperStay 24hr Makeup and Concealer

For those of you that are fans of Max Factor's Lasting Performance Stay Put Makeup (RIP, old buddy), perhaps you might find somewhat of a replacement in Maybelline's new SuperStay 24hr Makeup ($10). The consistency, which lies somewhere between Revlon's ColorStay and Lasting Performance (see my comparisons here), skews more on the slightly creamy end of the spectrum, so it's quite easy to blend.

As for the wearability factor, SuperStay definitely delivers, although by the end of the day, I did have some slick spots in the t-zone. I guess that's the sacrifice you must make in order to keep the finish on the cake-free side, as this product provides semi-matte to semi-dewy results. Surprisingly, this oil-free formulation provides a light-on-the skin feel, all while giving pretty strong coverage. Speaking of bargains . . . read more.

At Target, you can get the SuperStay Foundation with the SuperStay Concealer for just $10 — not a bad deal at all, considering you'd pay about $17 for both. I've always been impressed with Maybelline's concealers, from the brand's Cover Stick to the Instant Age Rewind, and the SuperStay Concealer is no exception. In fact, I'm all for wearing concealer as a light foundation these days, and that's exactly how I've been using Maybelline's SuperStay version; and best of all, it stays put, even better than the foundation. Final say: for a drugstore option, SuperStay foundation is worth a shot, and if I had to choose between the two, I'd pick the concealer for its multitasking benefits, somewhat creamy finish, and camouflaging abilities.
