Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Concealer in Cream, Ivory (Review, Swatches)

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour is my holy grail blemish concealer.

Where to Buy:  Maybelline, drugstores
$9 – $12

This isn’t for the faint of heart – it’s like concealer spackle.  I wouldn’t recommend using it under your eyes, but if you have blemishes or redness to neutralize this might do the trick for you.  I use two shades:

Ivory (10)
Cream (20)

My ideal shade is somewhere in the middle of the two, but Cream by itself will work in a pinch.  It leaves a demi-matte to completely matte finish so you don’t need to set it with a powder (and it might look cakey if you do).

The concealer applies with a doe-foot applicator, but using it on your face will distribute too much product.  I swipe it on the back of my hand and use a Coastal Scents 104 brush to stipple it on to my face.  I’m not sure that it’s transfer-resistant as Maybelline claims, but it stays on my face until I want to take it off.  What more can I ask for?

Yours in beauty,

    Hello, I’m now using Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch in “nude” (it’s slightly darker than my skin but works well when I blend it on my purplish undereye circles) but I’m looking for something with more coverage. My skin is extremely pale as I’m a redhead but it has a warm undertone: which shade would you recommend?
    It’s a pity that I can’t find a store with try-on samples of this concealer…

    Thank you in advance,

    • Hi Lori!
      I think I’d suggest the lighter shade (ivory). This is a great concealer but the shade range isn’t that impressive and I think the darker shade (cream) would be too big of a jump.
      The one downside to the ivory shade is that it can be a bit gray. If you’re looking to add coverage, your best bet is to mix the ivory with something warmer (maybe your Dream Lumi?). The Dream Lumi has a thinner consistency than the Super Stay so the two might actually work really well together.
      Hopefully this helps, and thanks for checking out my site!
