Super Stay 24hr Makeup Micro-Flex
by Maybelline NewYork
The lord knows I shouldn't be buying MAC foundation right now, so I saved about $20 and went with this affordable drugstore alternative.
I also wanted to try out one of my new Sigma Makeup Brushes and see if all the talk was true, and I was happy it was! I love this combo.
If I had to compare this foundation to anything by MAC it would have to be the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation with a few exceptions.
I think the Super Stay by Maybelline is great because you get just as much product for less money, and it lasts longer. This one is true to its bottle color also.

This brush, Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki - F80, is like no other brush I have ever tried. I always used a sponge, clean fingers, or a foundation brush. After trying out this beauty, which will run you a nice $16 on the Sigma website, its a small price to pay for a perfect application.
The bristles are softer than you could imagine. The thing I hated about the Duo Fiber brushes is that it does eventually give you the "airbrush" look...but with this one its almost at first stroke it gets the job done. I want to order one for each kind of foundation that I own.
(I'm a lazy brush cleaner)Unlike the traditional foundation brushes, this one leaves your face streak free!
I hope this post helped those of you who were looking for a drugstore brand of foundation that gave you the department store coverage without kicking you in the purse.
What drugstore foundation do you love? Any dupes?
Let me know, I am always out on the hunt for great dupes.
