I was in the market for two new shades for fall and winter. A perfect nude and a light berry. I found both by Maybelline.
I was hunting for colors, not long wear, but it seems that most lip color come with a long last promise. I brought home a Super Stay 10 hour Stain Gloss #180 and a Super Stay 14 hour lipstick # 25. First, the colors are perfect. Exactly what I was needing. The nude (#25) is perfect for a dark eye, pale lip face. I love it, but it promises 14 hours of wear. I wore it to a picnic and after my first drink and a slider, I went to check on it. It was so-so, slight color remaining but it didn't look freshly applied. In the car on the way home, about 3 hours later, it was completely gone. Not even a hit of color, just my bare lips. I'm okay with this, because the shade is perfect. I'm not so busy I cannot reapply, but since it had such big claims I wanted to see if it could live up to it's promise.
Next up, the stain gloss, again, I love the color! I tested this one out at home, put it on in the morning before my first cup of coffee and that combined with a few toddler kisses, it was a goner. Oh, well. As with the previous color, I'm not upset, although I did think a stain would last longer than a stick.
All in all, I'm still happy with my choices. I appreciate that the colors on the exterior of each product was exactly what i was purchasing, something that is very hard to come by in the world of drug store cosmetics. But if you need something to last your day, keep shopping.
