Hi my darlings - hope you are all having a good week so far and there is not too much last minute xmas prep to be done. I am sure most of you aren't as unorganised as me!!

Recently I decided to give some drug store makeup a go - back in the day when I was a young girlie I used to love using some of the cheaper brands, but that was mainly because I had the most amazing Garnier base that they stopped making.  Hate that.

One of the foundations I picked up was Maybelline Super Stay 24.  I am a sucker for a foundation that claims to be long lasting but absolutely nothing lives up to double wear in my experience (if you disagree let me know as I would love to find another!!).

The packaging is pretty boring but I do like that there is a pump on the top which makes it easier for application.  It retails at the around £9 mark.  As a lot of the high end drug store ones do these days.

I really like the finish of the foundation.  It's very smooth and sets pretty well.  I wouldn't say it lasts 24 hours though!! Definitely not.  It really needs a touch up come home time.

It's not cakey or drying though which is a major positive for me at this time of year as I find certain foundations just don't agree with me at all and cause flaky skin.  Not good.

This is what it looks like in the flesh anyway.  I should say also that I am wearing an immense amount of MAC cream highlighter in this picture and MAC strobe cream as a base so it's highly likely you could make it a lot matte-er, if that is something you are in to.  Personally, I prefer a more dewy look these days - hence the sheen!!! Also, this is work makeup so forgive my tired eyes and poor chapped lips - this is pretty much how I REALLY look :(



  1. Thanks for the review. I am always looking for good drugstore foundations. I like Maybelline products. Have you tried FITME? It's an excellent foundation for light coverage.
