Maybelline Super Stay 24 review

You know those days when you walk into Boots ‘just to get a few bits’? The next thing you know, you’ve got a basket full to the brim with everything from a hair mask to bubble bath and you’ve had to get a meal deal you’ve been in there so long.

My nemesis is the makeup section. I blimmin’ love seeing all the new brands, products and colours and can quite happily stay for a good hour just looking and trying stuff out. Needless to say, I usually leave with my hand much more colourful and my purse much lighter (why do you do it every time, Boots?! *shakes fist*)

Anyway… while I was meandering round my local store a few weeks ago, I came across Maybelline Super Stay 24:

So, soz if I’m late to the party, but I wasn’t really aware that makeup setting spray existed. I mean, you can put your makeup on, give it a spray and it will stay, all day?!

Before I continue, I should mention that my skin is oilier than the Mona Lisa. No matter what primer, foundation or powder I layer on I ALWAYS have to top up my makeup every couple of hours. Apparently, one day I will be grateful as my wrinkles won’t be as bad… but in the meantime I am single-handedly the highest spender of MAC Studio Fix powder.

I digress…

I bought the Maybelline Super Stay 24 makeup-locking setting spray (for a bargain price of £5.99) and have been using it for the last couple of weeks. I have to say I’m very impressed. All you do is give it a good shake* and spray it on. It does make your face quite wet, but give it a few minutes and it dries with a smooth matte finish.

*Quick note on the shaking: Do make sure you shake it. One day I didn’t and made my way into the office with little white spots all over my face. Good.

It has definitely done the job and has made a difference to how long my makeup lasts for. I’d go as far to say it’s increased its staying time by about 50%, which for me is amazing.

All in all, a great product that works well and won’t break the bank.

Have you tried Maybelline Super Stay 24 makeup-locking setting spray? Let me know what you thought or if you would recommend any other makeup setting sprays to try.

    I’ve not used this setting spray before but swear by The Body Shop’s Vitamin E face mist – it does the same thing whilst moisturing your face at the same time! I love it and can definitely tell a difference in how long my makeup lasts, especially at work. Might have to give this one a try once my trusty Body Shop one has run out! xxx

    Hi! I have oily skin just like you aswell so my makeup tends to slide off my face, so I purchased this setting spray but everytime I use it, little white spots appear from the mist on my face. Not sure why this keeps happening even after shaking well x

      That’s strange. I had this problem too but it was because I forgot to shake it!

      Try spraying it far away from your face, that seems to do the trick for me! x
