On my regular trips to the US, Iâ€™m always asked to pick up tons of Maybelline cosmetics for friends of mine as itâ€™s much cheaper than in Ireland.
A couple of trips ago, I picked up a tube of Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor for a friend. When I asked her how it worked, she raved about the product! Maybelline claims that the lipcolor will last for 16 hours if properly maintained (more about that later) and considering my friend wore it all day and cleaned her face going to bed, she then woke up the next morning to find it was STILL on her lips!!
On my last trip the the US I picked up the Superstay Lipcolor in several shades, mainly to see which one will look best for my wedding. Itâ€™s a strange product to apply as you basically â€˜paintâ€™ on a layer of the color and let it dry for 2 mins, then apply a layer of the gloss balm over the top to add shine and softness. I find that the gloss layer wears off when eating, drinking or smoking, but this can easily be reapplied over the color repeated times during the day and the color doesnâ€™t fade. If the gloss is not regularly re-applied then the base layer will wear off in patches, but this is a 'user-issue' not a 'product-issue'.
In fact, the lasting properties of the color base are so strong that Maybelline has now brought out a specific oil-based remover to help take it off at the end of the day!
Overall, Iâ€™d rate this product very highly and will certainly be wearing it on my wedding day.
