The remit? A long-wear foundation to improve skin with ProVitamin B5, Magnesium, Copper and Zinc.

I’ve had a go with this foundation – the shade is (almost) right for me, and what strikes me is that it is quite a dense coverage so if you like the ‘real skin’ look, avoid. However, it certainly does cover pretty much everything (I think if this had been brought out this time last year, they’d have called it a CC cream). I think what it’s trying to be is a treatment foundation although my press materials don’t say that explicitly.

It’s really hard for me to give an accurate assessment on the claims that it covers bumps because I don’t have any, but it’s very comfortable on the skin (if you like full coverage) which may be due to the glycerin that helps to hold moisture. I think if you have skin blemishes then it’s worth a go because it will give the coverage – if you find it helps to treat blemishes as well, do let me know! Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation launches in January (I think.. I’ll update if I find out differently) for £8.99 along with its counterpart concealer, £5.99.
