Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor

This Superstay Lipcolor comes in a dual end tube, as you can see in the picture. The first side is for the lipcolor and the other side is for the ultra-conditioning balm. According to their website, this Lipcolor claims to be:

This long-wearing lipcolor creates 16 feel-good hours of luminous color.
  • Flexible formula moves with your lips for no caking or flaking
  • Ultra-conditioning, refillable balm seals in softness for all-day comfort
So the best way to test this product is, of course, by wearing it and see how long it'll stay. I've done it. I applied it on my lips and this Superstay Lipcolor really has a super staying power. I mean, it last through my meal, my drink and I even brushed my teeth with this thing on my lips. And it survived the test. That is, if you're talking about staying power.

Another great thing about this Superstay Lipcolor is, look at these pictures.

Yup, it stays on your lips. Not on your cups or your kleenex. Great stuff, huh?

However, after talking about all the pros of this product, I still have some cons. First of all, this lipcolor stays on your lips almost the whole day, that way this lipcolor feels dry on your lips and, like, sticks to your lips in an annoying way. It's like, you can feel that there's another layer on your lips and tightened the surface of your lips. Hmm.. I don't know how to really describe it, but the bottom line is, it feels kinda uncomfortable. And that ultra-conditioning balm doesn't really help either. It gives you extra shine but doesn't really help with the moisturizing since the lipcolor itself is super dry. But maybe you'll get used to it after hours. And I read some reviews that say that you have to re-apply the balm (again and again).

In the end, I still have mixed feelings about this product. But if you love lipcolors with great staying power and you can ignore that dry feelings on your lips, than this Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor is the right thing for you.

As I said in my previous entry, that this Superstay Lipcolor is actually a gift from my mom's friend. She lives in Netherlands. So I googled and found out that this product has different namings in US and Europe. Mine is in Rose Dust (but you won't find this name in US website). And this is the swatch on my lips.

Try using a normal lip balm like chapstick to rehydrate it. Works much better than the balm-stick you get with the lipcolour.
