I absolutely hate having to touch up my lipstick during the day at work. Not sure why some of you find this product "flaky." You might be applying too heavy an application and to the reviewer who used a tissue to blot..............you don't need to do that! You are basically wiping off most of the product. Be patient after applying a thin coat of colour before adding the balm. My only complaint with this product is definitely the packaging. The balm end of the tube does not click into place and stay secure in my make-up bag. When Maybelline first came out with this product, the balm side of the tube was never an issue.
I have tried lots and lots of lipsticks in many brands, where they claim to stay on indefinitely and Maybelline is the only company who's promise of that holds true. I can drink coffee and eat lunch and not have to worry about touch ups all day long. I've wasted a lot of money over the years trying other brands but always come back to Maybelline.
Unfortunately this product did not work for me at all! It became extremely flakey and uneven, and when blotting my lips with a tissue (by blotting I mean I pressed my lips against a tissue after all of the steps of application to test if it was transferrable, and it was) the flakes were transferring and thus making my lips look even more uneven. I'm so disappointed - I had such high hopes for this product as everyone seems to love it, but for me it ended up reallllllly letting me down.
I followed it step by step and even watched several youtube demos before my application but it still didn't work for me. I tried everything within my power to make it work but it just mustn't suit my lips for whatever reason..
I trust that some people have actually had amazing experiences with it, but maybe it's just not suited to everyone!
Please just bear in mind that this product may not work for you as it did not for me! Be cautious..
I'd first like to say that i haven't used a drugstore product i years. first impressions: very good so far. just bought it in shade 105 for my wedding. don't know how well it wears yet throughout the day but i'm hopeful and quite impressed so far. i'd say it's better than MAC. doesn't feel drying at all and the gloss is very nice and quick to reapply when necessary
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.
