Happy Sunday! I’m finally getting back into the swing of things after being on vacation for 10 days.
Being an avid beauty junkie, I’m always on the lookout for the next best thing. About two months ago, I started using Maybelline Superstay Better Skin skin transforming powder in Classic Ivory. I purchased it at Ulta for $10.99. I try to use a foundation with an SPF of at least 30, along with a moisturizer with at least a SPF of 30 every day as well. This foundation does not contain any SPF. It has Salicylic Acid and promises to transform your skin in three weeks.
Here is the description from Ulta’s website:
What if a powder could cover like a foundation and control shine all-day?
In addition the powder’s creamy texture blends seamlessly and gives all-day oil control for a shine-free finish.
Finally, the formula contains skin-clarifying salicylic acid, which is proven to reduce the appearance of imperfections, pores and unevenness while flawlessly covering.”
You can adjust the coverage easily by how you apply it. If I want more coverage, I use the sponge applicator that came with it. I prefer using a kabuki brush, as it’s a much lighter coverage.
I was leary of the Salicylic Acid being too harsh for my mature skin. I’ve never had a problem with acne, and I know this ingredient works well for that.
I have to say I’ve been very pleasantly surprised with this product. Not only does it give me all day coverage, but I do feel my skin has improved. I have very nice skin for my age, and don’t need too much coverage. The picture below was just taken last week, we were on vacation in Central America, so I have a bit of a tan. It lasts all day, and I never need to touch it up.
If you are looking for a nice drugstore brand powder foundation, this is a real winner.
Thanks for stopping by.
