Some kind of witchcraft....
I hate lip stains. I hate having dry lips, I had lip color that dry into the crevices of your lips. I hate anything that claims it lasts 16 hours.
But this lip product is magic in a tube, I swapped for the Infinite Petal color for a MLBB shade that lasts for ages without making my lips feel sticky, uncomfortable or dry.
Might need to pick this up in even more colors, I may never go back to lipsticks again.
One con is the packaging, too cheap...I don't like it. Any balm would work for the layering and it doesn't need to be included.
Of all the long wearing lip colors, this is the best. But -- there are tricks to getting a great look with it. Blot it! Not with tissue, but with a good quality paper napkin.No Lint! The problem with these lipsticks is they often can be too dark. The blotting takes care of that. Plus, you can dab on a lighter shade over the long wearing color (after it has dried), and then apply the gloss. I get compliments all the time on my lipstick. And I only apply it once a day. Plus, this brand will wash off with a wet wash cloth and a little soap.
Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor is the worst lip product I have ever had the missfortune to use in my entire life. The balm part of it is unpleasntly goopy and nasty, and the gloss sinks into the lines on my lips and becomes sticky and flaky. Yuck! I'm really surprised by all the good reviews on here, because this just didn't work for me! Maybe I got a bad tube of it or something, cause this is terrible.
This product wasn't for me at all. Even if I moisturised my lips beforehand, this lip colour dried out quickly, felt sticky and uncomfortable, and left my lips flaky and cracked. I would not recommend!
I own this in Red Passion, Rose Dust and Wildberry. While Red Passion lasts for hours and looks amazing despite eating and drinking, I find that the stay power of the other two is not that good. Maybe the new 24h formula is not as good as the 18h one :/
It does stay a long time as promised. However, it gets all dry and feels kinda weird. I have it in wild berry and it's a good color, but it's a little dark.
firstly, no one seems to know how bad for health these kinds of products are. longstay isn't good for you skin, trust me on that one.
Secondly, i used this before i started my derm course. Now i know better than to use these things so i tossed it out.
This peels, wears off in patches and also is VERY VERY drying. don't bother buying unless you;re going for a nude tone if you REALLY want to risk it.
This product comes in many lovely colours. I have it in Blush and Heather
Heather is a darker mauve-y colour and blush is a pinky/peachy/coral. I find that blush tends to ..crack..and feel from my lips and its rather sticky..however i use the revlon overtime lipcolour gloss over it instead of the balm (dont like it) and i find that it lasts way longer with that gloss..AND looks better! Heather is a nice dark colour for evening its staying power is better and looks lovely with revlon nude lipliner..overall i would repurchase but in different shades
packaging sucks cus the name wipes off and you cannot tell what lipcolour this is..
Why did they discontinue these? :( They really do last almost all day and the colors are gorgeous. I favor these over the new 24 hour wear ones, which aren't as long wearing.
The the lipcolor is tacky when initially applied, and when the gloss wears off which is a little unpleasant. I have to reapply the gloss end every few hours or after eating or drinking (the color stays on though!) I always run out of the gloss before the color which is irritating. After a while the color does start to crumble, not wear, crumble off, which is rather unattractive. Generally this doesn't happen until at least hour 9 on me.
You can still find them on eBay, generally for around $8-10 with shipping.
