I was on the hunt for a EL DOUBLE WEAR dupe. Understand here, a heavy covering foundation that stays all day. I had never tried any Maybelline before, so when I saw that it was only 10euros in Germany, I immediately bought it. The Superstay 24h says to last all day long with a heavy coverage.I was super excited to try it as my Estée Lauder Double Wear is running on low and I really wanted a more affordable product.
I got the shade 20 CAMEO. Which is not the latest but one of the lightest. It's not pale enough for my natural skin colour, I can only wear this with a tan on. I find it so sad that almost every drugstore foundation doesn't have a really pale shade. It always starts at a medium shade, it's almost all the time too dark for me!
I really like the packaging of this product, I find it simple and easy to use. The pump is SUCH a must have, it's any foundation's best asset. When I have to use my EL without any pump, it drives me nuts. Me love pump!
The foundation has a floral smell but it's nothing overpowering so that's alright.
I find this product to last really well, I have been loving wearing it lately. It makes my skin FLAW-LESS.It has a pretty heavy coverage without going cakey. It does look bad on my dry patches but I really moisturize my face before applying it so I'm sure I'm not going to look like a moisture-less person (ew ew ew). I have to say that the finish is pretty matte, nothing dewy, which I'm surprised I like. I'm used to use foundation with a dewy finish, so this is a new finish I have to get use too.
I would definitely repurchase this foundation as my summer foundation to replace my EL Double Wear. I'm so sad that it doesn't have a shade much lighter though so I could use it during winter too as the coverage is amazing!
I have bought so many foundations lately, I'm so excited to review them all :)
