Maybelline Superstay 14 Hrs Lipstick – Please Stay Plum (#095).
Last Sunday when I came out of the APTEC center after my final MBA exam (Wuuppiiee :D) draining and exhausted, I needed a breather – What other than shopping could make a girl feel refreshed and energetic ;) . I was off to cosmetic counters as soon as I entered Pantaloons in Borivali (Mumbai). I had my eyes on this lovely new range of Maybelline Superstay 14 Hrs Lipsticks. “14 Hrs” – To be honest, I was tempted by their claim. Most of the shades were unavailable (Always happens with me :( ). I picked “Please Stay Plum” shade keeping in mind a specific look I wanted to try with a nice soft plum shade.
- 14 hour long lasting lipstick with an ultra-lightweight formula.
- Stays fresh, light and comfortable.
- Super rich lip color that last for 14 hours.
- Pigments are enveloped in a long wearing system.
- 16 smudge free lipstick shades.
Shades: 16 alluring shades – From corals, pinks to reds and maroons. See the different shades from this range – HERE
My Experience with the Product:
Maybelline not only came up with a changed formula but also with a lovely changed packaging. I loved the new transparent packaging with Maybelline Superstay 14 HR lipstick nicely printed on it in white color. The color on the transparent base is utmost similar to the shade color which makes it easy to select the perfect shade.
#095 – Please Stay Plum is an soft plum color with brown undertones along with a hint of golden shimmer to it. Texture is a not a buttery smooth but gives a nice matte finish on a single swipe but after a couple of swipes you might notice a shinny finish. It feels very light on the lips – Strongly stands on their claims about the new light weight formula.It evens out on application and the plus point for me is that shimmer doesn’t settle in to the fine lines. Since it is a long wearing lipstick, it feels a little dry on lips so one has to exfoliate the lips before the application. It is highly pigmented shade and gives full opaque coverage to the lips. Please Stay Plum is a Gorgeous plum shade to have and will work across all the skin tones.
Even if it claims 14 hrs – I have tested it and it stayed for around 7-8 hrs but I’m not disappointed by it as this is my first long stay lipstick experience :). It does’’t fade but I found a need for touch-ups post meal to keep on the shinny finish. One needs to use a make-up remover to remove off the lipstick. It has a slight fruity fragrance (Reminds me of Poppins ;)) Overall, I had a great experience with it – I’m liking it and surely going to give the other shades a try very soon :)
- Cute packaging.
- Feels light on the lips.
- Glides easily and applies evenly on the lips.
- Highly pigmented and opaque.
- Smudge free.
- Shimmer doesn’t settle in the lines.
- 7+ Hrs stay.
- Nice fruity fragrance.
- 16 alluring shades.
On the Mediocre End:
- Doesn’t give a buttery smooth texture.
- One has to exfoliate lips before application.
- Transfers the color.
My Final Take:
Honestly, I’m attracted to the colorful shades of this range. A more creamy texture would have acted as a cherry on the top. I feel there are more options from other brands in this price range.
