I really wanted to review lip colors from the past few days, but accidentally, I “over scrubbed” the dead skin around my lips, which ended up making me look as if someone had punched me. Today, it is a lot better and so I thought that I would review another lip product for you.
I bought this lip color back in October. I had collected so many pinks that all my friends were teasing me that I only buy pink. So, one day, when I was at Westside, I gave in to the temptation to look at makeup products and started looking at lipsticks. I had in my mind that I would not buy anything in pink. So, after trying many, I decided to pick up this Maybelline lipstick in a brown shade. Also, it was a long wear one and I never had any long wear lipstick, so I decided to get this one.
Rs. 390/- (2.3 ml liquid color + 1.8 gm conditioning balm).
This long-wearing lip color creates 16 feel-good hours of luminous color. Flexible formula moves with your lips for no caking or flaking. Ultra-conditioning refillable balm seals in softness for all day comfort.
My Take on Maybelline Super Stay Lip Color #790:
The color is really nice. It’s the type that most of the Indian women would love to wear. It has really nice shimmer particles, gold and some purple ones. The glitter is not at all chunky. It is very smooth and easy. This lip color is not a gloss, rather its a liquid lipstick and for moisturizing purpose, a lip balm is also provided along side.
When you use only the colour part on your lips, it takes some time to set and believe me, if you don’t top it with a gloss or balm, its going to feel as if you have “Fevistick” on your lips. Lips just keep sticking together and its really irritating. I still don’t understand if I don’t really know how to use it. But as soon as I apply the balm on top of it, the colour starts coming off in a very weird manner. You would be able to see it easily in the pictures of my lips. It flakes as soon as I apply lip balm, but I can’t skip lip balm too because then my lips just keep sticking together. I find it very difficult to use in that manner.
The staying power is definitely not 16 hours as claimed by the company. It could be more around 5 or 6, but again that could be because I don’t particularly know how to use it. Any tips are definitely welcome!! My sister has had a better experience with this one as compared to me. So, I think it may even depend from person to person.
The colour is one that is definitely easily available in other brands too. I just got crowded by so many SAs at Westside that I thought I will just buy this one.
The swatch showed up beautifully on hand and it was so hard to rub it off. I literally scraped it so hard, but it did not come off which was good. I just don’t understand why a lip balm makes it weak.
Let’s just move on to the pros and cons of it:
Pros of Maybelline Super Stay Lip Color #790:
- Lasts longer than average if used properly.
- Nice colour which suits most of the complexions.
- The balm is very moisturizing.
Cons of Maybelline Super Stay Lip Color #790:
- Sticky if used without the balm.
- Expensive for the quantity.
- Tested on animals.
Would I Repurchase Maybelline Super Stay Lip Color #790?
No, considering that I am avoiding all the animal tested products.
I accidentally broke the balm while clicking pictures for this review, hence the poor and shapeless balm.
Take care guys!
