REVIEW | Maybelline Superstay Powder Foundation


Super Stay® Full Coverage Powder Foundation Makeup Matte Finish features a high-pigment formula that achieves a full-coverage finish that lasts all day.

Packed with color-matching pigments, this long-lasting formula delivers our highest foundation coverage ever in a powder! This full-coverage powder makeup has a creamy texture that is easily blendable and glides onto the skin for a matte finish. From Classic Ivory and Natural Beige to Honey and Golden Caramel, this high-coverage powder foundation is available in an extensive range of complexion-matching shades.

Powder foundation is ideal for those who don’t have much time to do foundation blending. Just use a sponge & apply like an ordinary compact powder. You will achieve a medium coverage just like a foundation!

So what made me buy this was the ‘superstay’ & ‘full cover’ claim. They have 7 shades to choose from :


#120 classic ivory



A sturdy packaging & simple design. Travel friendly. It has a separate compartment for mirror & sponge. I love this kind of design idea. The sponge is quite good with medium thickness.

Simple description at the back



The texture is buttery. Sometimes I use a brush to lightly set my skin but my brush did not pick the product that much. So if I need some coverage, I need to use provided sponge.

Lets talk about the shade:

Mine is in #120 classic ivory. I already bought the superstay foundation in the same code so I might think this would be perfect for me. But end up being a bit too light for my skin. So sad. So need to aware that liquid foundation & powder foundation are same in shade code but not exactly the same shade.



I would say that this product able to give light to medium coverage. It has a matte finish & last quite long. It is lightweight.

See, my hideous acne scar were covered


As you can see, my acne scars were 70-80% covered. Quite impressive. Mentioned earlier, the shade is like one shade lighter and my skin look quite ashy. To fix this, I dust over my bronzer to tone down a bit.

Expecting that powder product is not that waterproof, yet proved me wrong. I ran a tap water down my hand & I can still the product is still there. So if you sweat a lot, I assure you that this powder won’t budge.



Highly recommended this powder foundation to people with oily skin. Dry skin also can wear this but need to prep with a moisturizing primer.
