Maybelline Super Stay 24hrs Foundation

I have tried out so many foundations and never found anything that really worked for me. I read tons of reviews and recommendations and then purchased several foundations but none gave me the coverage I wanted. When I finally ran out of my old foundation I found myself not having bought a new one and therefore used my sister's foundation. I didn't promise myself too much from it as my sister really isn't that into makeup. She is the kind of person that picks up whatever looks nice. So I used her Maybelline Super Stay Foundation in 005 beige and ended up loving it. It stayed on the whole day and was a perfect match for my skin. I have rather oily skin but this foundation does not get cakey or shiny. It has SPF 19 (which is always a plus) and is meant for normal skin, but as I said it works wonders on my skin which is more on the oily side. I probably don't need to mention that I got myself exactly that foundation the next day...
The foundation claims to withstand heat, sweat and humidity, which is true, and last 24 hours, which I wouldn't be too sure about, but I wear it everyday for at least 9 hours and it stays on. Who keeps their foundation on for 24hrs anyways? (You shouldn't because your skin needs time to breathe and recover from all the stuff you put on it on a daily basis)
The foundation is great if you want medium to full coverage. It has a natural finish and is available in 7 shades, which is sadly not the best colour range. I was lucky enough to find my perfect match, but I am not sure if there is something for every skin tone.
However it is very inexpensive, 8.99pounds, and comes in a glass bottle with a white pump on top which is amazing as you can control the amount of foundation coming out very well. So if you are looking for a fairly inexpensive high street foundation which effectively covers spots, red marks, blemishes and all other skin imperfections then this is the perfect foundation for you ;)

This blogpost was not sponsored by Maybelline, it is my honest opinion. I really do love the foundation and I haven't found a better one yet. I am surprised I barely hear anyone talk about it in the beauty world, as it does such an amazing job.
Have you tried this foundation? What is your opinion on it?
