I am so addicted to IMBB these days and thanks to the lovely ladies here for inspiring me to write this article. Like most of the girls out here, I am crazily attracted towards lipsticks and today I will be reviewing a lipstick from the range Super Stay which has newly been launched by Maybelline. When this range launched I had to get myself at least one so last week when I spotted 15% discount going on at the Maybelline counter , I grabbed this one .
525 INR for 3.5 gm
Why you will love it:
14HR Lipstick with an ultra-lightweight formula:
• Stays fresh, light, and comfortable
• Super rich color that lasts for 14 hours
• Pigments are enveloped in a longwearing system
• 20 long wearing shades
For best results:
Apply your lipcolor by starting in the centre of your upper lip. Work from the centre to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.
The bottom half of the lipstick is transparent and the cap is of white color. The transparent portion is the same colour as the shade so it will be quite easier to locate. Given the price I feel the packaging could have been classier and prettier .
The smell is a real turn off for me and it smells exactly like cough syrup. As I do not have sensitive nose, I can get along with that.
My Thought on Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour Lipstick – Eternal Rose :
The first thing I would like to mention, I am in love with this colour. It is such a bright beautiful shade that instantly lifts your face up. This kind of shade is a little hard to pull off but if you are fond of brights like me you are sure to fall for its charm. It is a Matte finish lipstick and unlike most of the long staying ones I have tried it glides on smoothly, has intense pigmentation and only one swipe gives opaque coverage to the lips. Scoring high on the pigmentation department ,it fails to impress on the formula though. These will stick to the dry flaky bits so you really need to have exfoliated lips prior to the application.. Though I have not experienced any drastic dryness but it is not so comfortable either. I love matte lipsticks due to their ability to cast an elegant spell on lips. I loveee the formula though it is not as good as the Chambor Powder matte ones. It has a slight tug and stickiness common to many long stay lippies .
It stayed on me for 6-7 hours easily had I not removed it with a remover. The formula is not transfer proof. It gets transferred on cups , glasses etc. but would survive light meals. I have not tested it for 14 hours so cannot really comment on that claim. After a few hours I have seen this settling into fine lines with a little bit of patchiness.
The Colour :
The colour Eternal Rose is a vivid rose pink which is pretty much balanced. The color is little more on the warmer side and the shade reminds me of MAC Impassioned Lipstick . I do not own impassioned but going through the online swatches I could easily say they are similar. The color is lovelyyy and brightens up my face within a jiffy. I love brights and I am so in love with this gorgeous color. It is a very flattering shade which will add a youthful freshness to a lot of skin tones across. Refer to the hand swatch below. I tried to get an exact colour in the hand swatch picture but finally left with failed attempts. The lip swatches are the exact match.
Pros of Maybelline Superstay 14 hour lipstick :
■ Intense pigmentation, gives opaque coverage to the lips.
■ lasts really long , easily for 6-7 hours.
■ Gorgeous bright rose pink shade.
■ Smooth Texture.
Cons of Maybelline Superstay 14 hour:
■ Formula would stick to the dry flaky bits accentuating lip lines.
■ Non transfer proof.
■It has a little stickiness common to many long staying matte lipsticks.
■ The packaging is pretty ordinary.
■ Expensive for 3.3 gms.
