Long Stay... Gorgeous Pink
I am sitting here staring at my laptop screen wondering how to start my post. Nothing witty, nothing funny and nothing even remotely "cute" is coming to my mind... So I am just penning (typing) down whatever is going through my mind right now, which isn't really much... It's mostly blank... Is this what they call a Writer's Block? Not that I am any kind of writer but I guess my creative juices aren't really flowing today :(
So let me just get straight to the point :) Maybelline 14 hours Superstay lippies have been the talk of the town since the day it released and with 16 sumptuous shades to choose from, none of us are complaining... They seem to have a shade for everyone...
What Maybelline Says About Its 14hr Superstay Lipstick
Now, you can discover the light weight feel of the most colorful long-wear yet!
With a multitude of vibrant shades, in just one step, it lasts for 14 hours without ever drying, crumbling or feeling tight.For the first time ever Maybelline New York introduces shade matched bottoms so you can now buy what you see!
What I Have To Say About Maybelline's 14hr Superstay LipstickSince the day I received the product in my post, I have been wearing it daily, even to office! It's a kind of shade that can get to you, in a good way of course and make you fall in love with it. It isn't the bright pink you think it will be and neither is it the typical pink that leaves you looking sallow and ill. It is just the perfect pink that would suit a multitude of skin tones and complexions.
It is that shade that brightens up your look and you need nothing else on your face. I myself have been wearing it even without kajal and that's a biggie for me!
As far the superstay part of Maybelline's claim in concerned, it sure does stay on for a pretty decent number of hours and with that I mean all throughout office hours. I haven't really tested it for 14 hours, but it stays on with the same intensity for about 6 hours and then starts to fade out evenly. Thus when I am back from office, its still there on me :)
Is it drying you ask... Well it isn't really drying but it isn't really moisturising or hydrating either. It's just there on your lips without doing anything to it except for looking pretty. It is pretty light weight and doesn't flake out. The fragrance on the other hand is pretty confusing. On some days I find it ok and on the others I absolutely hate it. It is an artificial, fruity kind of a smell but thankfully disappears after a couple of seconds on application.
However, I absolutely abhor the packaging. It has its lower half in a transparent plastic casing through which you can see the exact shade of the lippy. That's the nice part. The not so nice part is the cheap, white, plastic cap that comes with the lippy. I hate it! I wish they had made a steel cap go with it. That would have rendered it a more classy and maybe even an expensive feel to the whole product.
