You know Hourglass Vanish Stick Foundation? Well, I’d hoped that Maybelline’s new cream-to-powder foundation stick would be a drugstore dupe for it because it’s only $11.99…which is a lot less than $46.
Both feel velvety and satiny smooth, but one costs A LOT less than the other.
Maybelline Super Stay Multi-Use Foundation Stick ($11.99, 16 shades)
Just like you do with Vanish, you swipe the stick wherever you want coverage, then blend it out with your fingers. Or, you can use the attached sponge, but I think it’s kind of dumb, since you can’t remove it from the tube to clean it…
From the Ulta website:
“Whether you’re looking for a cream foundation or a contour foundation, this multi-tasking Super Stay Multi-Use Foundation Stick is a must-have essential that conceals, contours, highlights, and covers. Maybelline’s 1st all-in-one foundation stick features a cream-to-matte foundation and a precision pointed blender sponge that is perfect for applying cream foundation at home or touching up your look on-the-go.”
- Maybelline New York’s first multi-use foundation stick
- All-in-one foundation stick for up to 24HR wear
- Cover, Conceal, and touch-up anywhere, anytime
- Features a precision pointed tip blender sponge
Unlike Vanish, which you can easily push to full coverage, Superstay lives in the sheer-to-medium coverage lane, and to keep it fully locked down, you’ll reeeallly need to dust a fair amount of setting powder on top; otherwise, it’ll stay creamy and keep moving around.
This step is non-negotiable, unfortunately, and if you skip it, most of the product will have disappeared by midday.
So, not really a dupe at all… Feel free to shake your fist full of dollars to the heavens, my budget lovin’ babe. Overall, I think it’s OK enough to use in a pinch, but it’s not gonna change your life.
