Hi there! Look at me today, I am being a beauty blogger! Just joking, I am not really a beauty blogger and I will leave that to the experts, however, I do like an easy and quick routine in the morning to put my face in order. I don’t have the best skin – it’s full of pigmentation (from years of immunosuppressant drugs), it’s super sensitive and I have had numerous BCC’s removed with a recent skin graft on my nose this year. So, my skin is always calling for some TLC- BUT it has to be easy.
I didn’t even like makeup, and until about 3 or 4 years ago I never wore foundation! As my skin started to change, I knew I had to start looking at easy solutions that wouldn’t make me feel like I was heading in to a dance concert. It had to be light and not difficult to apply. I have no desire to stand in the bathroom for too long in the mornings!
So, when I was asked if I’d like to trial the new Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin range I said yes!
I get funny about foundation though. I always worry that if my skin isn’t well moisturised beforehand it will start to clump during the day and flake off. I need a foundation that has moisture locked in so I can be sure it will stay on fresh all day. I found out that the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin range is the first vitamin enriched long-wear foundation and concealer with skin improving Actyl-C. Now this was a foreign word to me so I looked it up… ACTYL-C is a powerful vitamin which leaves skin feeling energized. Skin looks fresh, healthy and radiant. It helps promote skin regeneration, evens discolouration and dull areas for a fresh, healthy and radiant glow. This sounded like what I needed.
First I colour matched the foundation to my skin tone. It’s available in 8 shades: Beige, Ivory, Cameo, Nude, Sand, Golden, Fawn, and Sun Beige. I went with the NUDE.
Then I started trialing it daily before I made a video about how easy it is to use and how good it ends up looking. My morning routine only took 90 seconds and by the end of the day all my face was still in place! I also noticed a difference straight away – my skin looked smoother, there was less discolouration and I could barely see the skin graft…
Here’s a video I made on how easy it went on…
As you can see I always use zinc under my foundation. I am paranoid about skin cancer after all the troubles I’ve had over the years. Although the foundation is SPF 14 too.
The foundation went on easily with my fingers (I’m not fancy with brushes!) and then the concealer easily pats on. Then I just made sure it was all blended. My bestie is a hairdresser and makeup guru who approved of my efforts as she knows how much I hate too much makeup.
The two products I tried are:
1. Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation- $21.95. Available in 8 shades.
2. Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer- $14.95. Available in 2 shades: 02 Light & 03 Medium (I used the Light).
