Maybelline Super-Stay 24hr Foundation and Concealer First Impression

Having been seriously impressed by the Maybelline Super-Stay 24hr Lip Colour, I decided yesterday to splurge on the Super-Stay 24hr Foundation and Concealer, to trial and review for you guys!

I am going to wear it everyday for a week, and write a small bit on how I find it. Today is Friday, and I'm going to apply it now, and see how it goes on.

First, I'll just relay what it says on the foundation bottle.

"Micro-Flex Formula. Flawless Wear Foundation. Non Transfer, Day & Night 
Shade: 005 Light Beige (This seems to be the lightest shade) SPF:19 For All Skin Types"

Foundation First Impression:
When you pump this out of the bottle, it's pretty liquid, and runny. However, when you apply it on your face (I used a Real Techniques Stippling Brush and blended it with a Beauty Blender type of sponge) it's medium coverage, kind of sheer, which I like. It seems to have a yellow undertone, but it mellows out with a neutral setting powder. It doesn't feel heavy, and it hasn't immediately settled into my pores. So far, so good.

Concealer First Impression:
I used this concealer last night to touch up my face before I went out, and I was immediately impressed. I was very happy to apply this with its matching foundation today.

The wand is not a traditional doe-foot, rather, a rounded bullet-tip.
The consistency is very thick, medium/full coverage, which is great for my dark circles and blemishes.

This foundation seems to be a pretty good offering, so far! I will post a full review in a week or so!

Keep your eye out for the full, detailed post, this day next week! :D
