Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Powder

Maybelline's newest pressed powder for us oily gals comes with acne treatment salicylic acid built in.

Superstay Better Skin - Skin Transforming Powder is a matte powder that also has light/medium coverage. It's not heavy but not sheer and not only mattes without looking too dry but also fills in and hides pores and perfects, smoothes skin. The  extra coverage is nice too, when the oil on your nose has broken down your foundation from it's AM application.

As for the salicylic acid, it's far down in the ingredients and I'm not sure how much gets through to skin but I'll take a little extra help to keep oil at bay and pores clearer.

I really like how this looks and works.  It holds up nicely although usually not all day. I recall Maybelline's Super Stay foundations being really long wear. Harder to get that in a powder, but the coverage here lasts longer than many powders, easily half a day on me  and depending on what foundation I've used, longer.

 I use this both over my foundation right off the morning to smooth and add a bit more coverage or over my foundation midday and/or evening . If I use first thing it definitely extends foundations wear/look.  It will work on bare skin or over a BB/ CC nicely too, giving just enough coverage .

Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Powder comes in eight shades and is available now.

Shades shown are Warm Nude and Classic Ivory.
