It’s not easy being oily, especially if you’re a matte-loving girl with naturally slick skin. If you consider yourself a member of the shiny skin squad, you’re all too familiar with the challenges that come with trying to keep your natural shine under control. One second you’re totally oil-free and slaying your selfies from every angle, and the next you’re reaching for blotting paper faster than you can say “oily T-Zone.” What gives? 

Enter the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Powder, a beauty product that is sure to give oily-skinned girls a reason to rejoice. Not only does the transforming powder offer flawless coverage, but it controls oil and shine all day. So, when Maybelline sent samples of the recently launched powder our way, we didn't hesitate to run it through our QA test. Keep reading to see why we put our blotting papers down, and picked up this Better Skin Powder instead.

Makeup Powder for Oily Skin

The first thing you’ll notice about the Super Stay Better Skin Powder is the clean, white packaging. Complete with a makeup sponge and mirror for easy, on-the-go application, the compact is lightweight and won’t take up too much space in your makeup bag. We know how cluttered that can get.

Once you’re done swooning over the smooth, velvet-like texture of the powder and have applied the product to oil-prone areas like the chin, nose, and forehead, the long-lasting coverage is sure to leave you in awe. The powder stays in place long after application, and the oil-controlling formula prevents unwanted shineness throughout the day—so you can finally stop powdering your nose at your office desk.

“But what if I don’t have oily skin,” you ask? If you don’t have oily skin but still want a powder that covers like a foundation, you’re in luck: Super Stay Better Skin Powder provides ample coverage that could rival your favorite foundation. Suitable for all skin types, the mattifying coverage is ideal for daily use and leaves your complexion looking even, shine free, and above all, natural.

How to Use:

Step 1. Apply to Areas of Concern

Using the sponge applicator, apply to the forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin.

Step 2. Blend Powder

Blend all over using gentle downward strokes.
