New Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Powder

Well this one wasn't even on my radar, because it wasn't in any of the Maybelline sneak peeks that I've been sharing with you over the past few months!

Thanks so much to reader @msqueenbee617 on Instagram for sharing the above pic of the new Superstay Better Skin Powder that she spotted at her local Walmart this week. I won't rehash all of the other new Maybelline products that are now popping up in stores, but if you missed of my previous posts, just click my Maybelline tag HERE to catch up. 

I cropped/enlarged @msqueenbee617's pic for a closer look:

There are eight shades in this display.

If you'd like to know what this compact looks like inside, here you go!

This product has been available in other countries since 2015. Above is an image from the Maybelline New Zealand website.

PLEASE NOTE: the following copy is from the Maybelline New Zealand website. I do not know if the formulation for the US product is the same, so please keep that in mind when reading this information.

Meet the powder that improves the appearance of your skin in 3 weeks. Say goodbye to shine, bumps and redness and hello to all-day oil control and flawless coverage.
Why You'll Love It
Mattifying coverage: The energising complex coverage is designed ot cover flaws and improve skin.
The lightweight combination of Vitamin B5+ Septonic M3 (Magnesium, Copper and Zinc) hydrates and plumps skin.
Salicylic Acid: The 0.45% Salicylic Acid anti-oxidant helps to increase skin turnover, evens out discolouration and dull areas.
For Best Results
Lightly pat over face using the applicator. Smooth using gentle, downward strokes and blend powder around the jaw line. Can be used with or without foundation.

What's interesting to note is that this product only comes in two shades in New Zealand and four shades in other countries. We get eight shades here in the US.

Have you spotted this new powder in your area yet? If so, where did you find it? I love most Maybelline powders, so I'm excited to try this one. Especially since it looks like you may be able to use this as both a setting powder and a powder foundation (powder foundations are my favorite). Thoughts?

UPDATE: Thanks to reader Melanie for letting us know that this product is available (select shades) on Amazon HERE for $8.99 as an add-on. And in case you missed it last week, some of the other new Maybelline products are also available on Amazon--check out my post HERE for links to the Color Jolts (thanks to reader Peaisms for the tip that another shade is now available), the contour sticks, and more!

UPDATE #2: Thanks to reader Mary for the tip that select shades are also available on the Walmart website HERE (free in-store pick-up).

Thanks again, @msqueenbee617, for the great sighting and pic!


  1. It's also available on Amazon! But, quite a few shades are out of stock.

    1. Oooh, thank you, Melanie! Will update my post! xo

  2. I will keep my eye open for this! I've been using Alima Pure for over 5 years and it's up to $28. I need to find a cheaper alternative.

  3. I just ordered it from good ol😀 can't wait to try it. I love maybelline lip and face products!#

    1. Oh thank you, Mary! Will update my post with your tip! xo

    2. You are welcome😊 I feel my favorite blogger mentioned my tip! (had to tell all my friends)

  4. Interesting product can't wait to try it!

  5. Another Color Jolt (Violet Rebel) and three Master Contour V-Shape Duo Sticks (Light/Medium/Deep) are also now available on Amazon (along with a couple of other Maybelline items that may be new (not sure - I can't keep up!!) -- Brow Precise Micro Pencils (two colors available) and Baby Lips Glow Balm, My Pink)!

    1. Oh thank you, peaisms! Will update my post from last week with this new info! xo

  6. I received this product as a full size sample and I have to say that it's pretty good.

  7. G, can you tell what the shades are, and if so can you list them? i have tried divining the shades from looking at Walmart or Amazon but the shades all look so dark and these pics give a better indication i think. Thanks in advance!

  8. So many new Maybelline products coming out and I haven't found a single one in any drugstore, Walmart or Target! Comon Maybelline!!!!!

  9. This looks a lot like Japanese powder foundation compacts. I hope there are refills.

  10. Saw it today at walmart and bought it along with their new eyebrow pencil and highlighting stick can't wait to try them out !

  11. Owow I'm stoked about this and I'm not thrilled about powders being that I have combo skin, but this whole range is great so im excited!!
