I got my first Influenster VoxBox! If you haven’t heard of Influenster, it is a free program that rewards you with products in exchange for reviews. You can check it out here. Although I received this box for free, all opinions are my own and fully honest.
The product I received in the box was Maybelline’s SuperStay Better Skin Powder in the shade Porcelain. You get .32 oz of product along with a sponge and fairly large mirror-perfect for on the go! It also contains Salicylic Acid, so it’s great for my acne-prone skin. Although I thought this was just a powder when I first received it, the product claims to cover like a foundation that controls shine all day. So I tried it both ways, firstly I applied a BB Cream like I would and set it with the powder. It stayed matte for a long time and didn’t look patchy on the skin. It’s a little more yellow that my skin tone is, but it isn’t a huge problem-it just doesn’t work well with my under eye area.
The next time I applied it, I just used it as my foundation. I applied some under eye concealer and spot corrected, then I used the sponge it came with and applied it on my skin. I really liked how the finished result came out. It had light to medium coverage that was just made my skin look really good. It covered the redness on my face and evened out my skin tone. The only problem is because it is a matte powder, it clung to my dry patches a little bit, but it wasn’t too noticeable. I will be using it as a powder foundation from now on because I liked how easy it was to apply and how my skin looked in the finished result.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
