I've actually had this lipstick for a while now, and only just got round to reviewing it! I'm always really, really wary of lipsticks or glosses that claim to last any amount of time, so when I won a Maybelline Super Stay Lipstick from Fabulous magazine, my first thought was "I bet not" and my second thought was "Well, I will try anything!" so on to the review.
The Maybelline 14 hour lipstick comes in a see through bullet with a white plastic lid. I have to stay, not fantastic looking packaging & I've seen "drug store" (I hate that term so much, but the "Boots/Superdrug store isn't any better!) packaging executed a lot better, so poor effort Maybelline!
As I won this, I didn't pick the shade, but the shade I was sent was 110 Never-ending Pink, which I was pleased with as I tend to lean towards pink lips! The tip of the lipstick is much thinner than other brands like MAC, so it makes it easier to apply to my tiny mouth!
Swatched it's a semi matte mid pink, it's quite bright for me but I actually really like it when applied to the lips.
But, the most important question of all, does it last 14 hours? Well, no. Well, it could, if you plan not to eat, drink or move your mouth for 14 hours. This isn't to say it's not a hard wearing lipstick that lasts a fairly long time. Once applied it's fairly tacky on the lips to begin with, but that dries fairly quickly & leaves a small amount of stain on the lips, so once it rubs off you are left with a small amount of colour on the lips. Even though its semi matte I didn't find it drying at all.
I would say a good effort at a long lasting lipstick, not quite on the mark but not bad at all! I'm going to check out the other 10 shades at some point soon, and you can browse the shades here.
So ladies, could any of you point me in the right direct of a longer lasting lipstick?
