Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Foundation in 005 Light Beige

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Foundation in 005 Light Beige


I really like this for when I’m in a rush as it glides on my skin smoothly and covers everything. I don’t even need to use a concealer when I’m using this foundation. It is fairly thick though but that’s why it gives all over coverage. I have also used this in 030 Sand for when I used to always fake tan (I’ve stopped that since I found out I was pregnant and my skin got super sensitive) and  it was a perfect match to my fake tan. Which I don’t think was that orange lol. This does last all day, not sure about 24 hours but who needs it on for that long anyway?! I’ve already repurchased this but I’ll always be trying out the next new foundation. I’d love something that looks like this but that just feels lighter.

Benefit Playstick in Spin The Bottle


I only bought this because I had my make up done at a Benefit counter, I used to go to one once a month with a friend. It was nice because the girls got to know us and what we would be interested in trying out. Anyway, this product looked great in store and for a few hours after but I find that it rubs of extremely easily. I like my foundation to set and this one doesn’t. The colour is lovely and it does make my skin look good but where my skin can be fairly oily this slides all over my face! I will not be repurchasing this but if I had a different skin type I probably would as I love the colour of it (when I’m tanned).

Now I only have four products left to use up, the end is in sight! The Primer Potion and the Top Coat will be around for a while though, there’s still over half of the product left in each of them, which is good because I’m obviously getting my moneys worth but not good at the same time when I want to be able to buy pretty make up products!

If you remember I posted this around a week ago, it is a list of ten beauty products I’m using up before I buy anything else.

I have finished three of the products already.

♥ Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair
♥ Benefit Get Even in 01 Light
♥ Ed Hardy Original Perfume
♥ Revlon Top Coat Nail Polish
♥ Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Foundation in 005 Light Beige
♥ Max Factor Mastertouch Under Eye Concealer in 303 Ivory
♥ Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
♥ Benefit Dr Feelgood
♥ Benefit Playstick in Spin The Bottle
♥ 17 Blusher in Bramble Frost

Benefit Get Even in 01 Light

This pressed powder is a light enough colour for me and it covers redness quite well but I find that I have to reapply throughout the day more than once.
I will not be repurchasing this product, if it was cheaper I might just to use to cover redness but I don’t think it’s worth the money as it doesn’t last, which means I end up using much more than I would like.
(I have a project in mind for the empty case – look out for that soon)

Max Factor Under Eye Concealer in 303 Ivory

This concealer is made for under eyes yet it didn’t seem to do anything to cover my dark circles. You don’t get much product and you need quite a lot of it to really cover anything at all.
I will definitely not be repurchasing this product.

17 Blusher in Bramble Frost

This is the first blush I ever used when I was first trying out make up. I bought it again a couple months ago to see if I would still like this over 10 years later. It is a good blush, nothing special about the colour or formula but it does what it’s supposed to. It stays on all day and is cheap.
I would repurchase this if I was on a budget but I normally prefer more interesting colours.

I’m not doing too badly with working my way through the rest of the products so I’ll post another update next week.

Have you tried any of these products?

I decided last week that I would focus on a selection of beauty products to use up and finish before I even think about buying anything else.

The products (as shown above) are:
♥ Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair
♥ Benefit Get Even in 01 Light
♥ Ed Hardy Original Perfume
♥ Revlon Top Coat Nail Polish
♥ Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Foundation in 005 Light Beige
♥ Max Factor Mastertouch Under Eye Concealer in 303 Ivory
♥ Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
♥ Benefit Dr Feelgood
♥ Benefit Playstick in Spin The Bottle
♥ 17 Blusher in Bramble Frost

All of these are close to being dead anyway but I tend to get distracted by new things so I know that these will sit in my drawers for months unless I make a conscious effort to use them!

I’ll be posting an update on how I’m getting on with this in a week or so. I’ll include mini reviews on each product I’ve finished and let you know if I’m planning to repurchase it or not.

Do you ever do anything like this to stop your make up collection from getting out of control?
