Maybelline recently launched 14HR SuperStay Lipstick and I had to give one of these beauties a try, mainly because I always, always tends to eat my lipstick away after few hours. Maybelline launched around 20 shades in total for this range & you can see the swatches here. Preetha has reviewed the shade Timeless Crimson on IBJ.
I love Maybelline’s Colorsensational Jewels range for their crimson effect packaging, the SuperStay range has different packaging altogether but it is still nice to look at. The transparent bullet reflecting the actual shade of the lipstick makes life easier if you have more than one of these beauties and the white cap seems ok to me. The texture of the lipstick is super creamy & smooth and it glides easily on the lips. In the bullet, it seems like it has matte finish but when applied on the lips it gives pearl finish.
These lipsticks are super pigmented and settle on the lips like a stain within a minute of application and then it does not budge or feather at all. Though it claims of 14 HR stay it does not dry out the lips at all. I do not have to moisturize or prep my lips especially for it. Infact it is moisturizing enough that I could do without a lip balm underneath. The staying power is claimed 14 HR and it lasted on me for around 7 hours, keeping in mind it survived tea and a light snack in between and also the fact it is a lighter shade. I am sure with the darker shades the wear time would be easily 8-9 hours. I must say its impressive compared to the regular ones which lasts for about 2-3 hours and need frequent touch up.
The color “Consistently Truffle” looks matte brown in the bullet but when swatched on skin it comes across as a peachy brown in single swipe and with multiple swipes it comes across as a pinkish brown shade with pearl finish.
