My Experience with Maybelline Super Stay 24 Color Lipcolor ‘Keep Up the Flame’:
Lip color comes in a white dual ended tube, with a color coded tube. I can open both side smoothly. The color coded side contains liquid lip color, and white side has a clear balm. I like this compact packaging, and product never leaks. It is very easy to carry around. The shade name mentioned, at the bottom of the tube. It comes with a very nice applicator, that evenly spared the color on lips. Brush is good, and you can easily line up your lips, with a steady hand.
Shade & Pigmentation:
It has a huge shade range, and I picked two colors among 10 shades. This ‘Keep up the flame’ is a very beautiful bold red shade, that looks absolutely stunning, on my tanned skin tone. It has a warm tone in it, that makes it more gorgeous. It is actually a true rusty base red, that is perfect for Indian skin tone. It doesn’t have any shimmers. I love this shade. Also it is super pigmented, that needs only one swipe for the perfect color pay off.
Texture & Quality:
It is a 2 in 1 lip color, that contains one liquid lipstick and one lip balm. I need to apply the liquid lipstick fast, and then I need to apply the balm over that liquid color. Liquid lip color has smooth texture, that glides easily on lips without any tugging, and the texture evenly spared on lips. It needs two layers, for that perfect even texture that never moves. But extra layering makes it little heavy and patchy.
Actually the upper layer dries out quickly, so it needs proper and fast application, but it takes time to dry out completely. It is too sticky in nature, so don’t touch your lips, otherwise it will peel off from the lips, must wait until it dries out properly. After 1-2 min it settles down in a perfect matte texture, and very dry on lips, and that’s why I must need to apply the balm, on the top of the matte shade. As the color dries out completely, and settle down in a perfect non transferable matte texture, so it doesn’t smudge at all, even with a balm. It stays perfectly without any mess. It is totally waterproof lip color.
Lip balm, provides the desire hydration to lips and makes lip soft; it actually helps to reduce that dryness, and also provides a glossy shine, on the dry texture. It generally doesn’t settle in fine lines, or never creases but if you apply excess product then it bleads from the center of my lips. Without the balm, it feels little uncomfortable on lips, but with balm it feels very comfortable and soft.
Company claims that it is a 24hr lip color, and yes, it is a true claim. It is a super long wear lip color, that stays over 18-19 hrs on my lips. I never wear it 24 hrs, but you need to apply perfect layer, that never moves. If you apply very thin layer or extra thick layer, then it can move from the inner liner of lips. But this lipcolor can survive any kind of food. It never needs reapplication, but the lip balm needs reapplication after lunch or after few hrs to maintain the hydration.
But the problem is to remove it from lips. It is so hard to remove completely, it needs a good creamy makeup remover, and takes long time to remove the overall stain from lips.
Overall: I love this shade; it looks super bold red on me, and also love the staying power. It is a perfect party wear lip color, that looks gorgeous on lips. But sometime it is little difficult to work with this lipstick if you in a hurry. The process takes proper time for that perfect look.
