Maybelline SuperStay 24 Long Lasting Lip Color Review

What better girl fun than to try out make-up?! ;) I was sent Maybelline's newest lip product, SuperStay 24 2 Step Lip Color for review. Supposedly, the longest lip wear out there, 24 hours to be exact, I put it to the test. However, before that, check out these cool facts that made it the product it is:
  • 5 years of research and 10 patents
  • no crumbling, caking, fading, feathering or transfer
  • Long and flexible applicator
  • 30 vibrant colors in 4 shade families: Reds, Plums, Pinks, Naturals
  • Easily found in most drug and big box stores for just $9.99

Well, then, how did it go? I'm a fairly active person and I have very long days so I think I probably put this product through the ultimate test. When I first applied the color, I was a little taken aback. I chose to use Wear On Wildberry and at first, it seemed a bit too bold, a little too sharp and not quite right on my complexion. My lips felt a bit weird until it dried and I was already thinking "uh oh" and I was worried about my lips being dried out. However, things turned around quickly as the initial lip color dried within a couple minutes and I was able to put on step 2, the ultra-conditioning lip balm and everything felt great, looked great. Drastic difference to what I had thought a couple minutes ago. 


So, with my new set of lips on :), I was ready to go for the day. To make a long day short, I documented with pictures my day...hehe...excuse my funny-looking lips... I took pics every several hours beginning with having nothing on to step 1, then step 2, some after I had some hot drinks and believe me, I was smacking my lips on my cups, my SO, and everything just to test the "does not transfer" claim and it held true, to my amazement, every time! I went out to play tennis, sweated up a storm, came home, took a shower, and yes, washed my face and hair, and it was still there, fresh as ever, I just needed to reapply some lip balm. As a side note, though, its nice that the lip balm is in the package and all, but I ended up using my own lip balm later in the day and it worked just as well, so if you run out of the balm, its all good. Anyhow, I then went out for supper with friends and had a few drinks, a good time and yes, the color was still there! I came home so late that night, took another shower before crashing for bed and by the next morning, when I woke up, I still had some color. Crazy, huh? Bet you never thought the lip color would've lasted through all that. 






It doesn't take a genius to figure out what I'm thinking now... I love it! Despite my initial hesitation and doubt, this has proved that it does last and look hot at the same time. Its a great color for going out on town for the night or even for daily, professional looks. 


Overall:
The good: It lasts 24+ hours, longest lasting ever! Great look! Love it!
The Bad: Well, if you want it off earlier...you'll need an oil-based makeup remover. And, although I like the applicator brush, it picks up quite a bit at once and with a new tube, it picks up globs!

Until next time,
