If you know me at all, you know how obsessed I am with lipstick, especially liquid lipstick. I own probably more than 50 tubes of lipstick, and wear a different shade pretty much every day. The unfortunate part is that lipstick doesn’t come cheap, especially if you want quality stuff that lasts all day. I’ve also found that a lot of liquid lipsticks tend to dry out my lips, or crack after a few hours of wear (especially the matte ones), and it just gets to be uncomfortable. Fortunately I was recently given the opportunity to try out Maybelline’s newest lip product: Super Stay 24 Lip Color, and was honestly surprised by how much I liked it. The product claims to last 24 hours without budging. It also claims that it “Always looks and feels just-applied through 300 cupcake bites, 120 coffee sips, and 90 kisses.” Now, I can’t say that I’ve counted my coffee sips or kisses, or eaten 300 cupcake bites in one day, or even left it on for 24 hours, to be honest. But I can say that I’ve worn this several times and it has lasted all day without budging, and never dried out my lips or cracked. First, I like to apply a liner (as I do with any dark or bold color). Next, apply the gloss side of the lipstick, using small strokes and applying in an even layer. Wait a two minutes for it to dry, then swipe a coat of the clear balm to seal in moisture and lock in color. When time comes to take it off, remove with an oil-based makeup remover or wipe. Super simple, and worth every step! I’m pretty confident Maybelline made a similar product to this back with I was in middle/high school and it was all the rage. See? I’ve been on board the liquid lipstick train before it was even cool! The red shade I’m wearing in these photos is “Keep Up The Flame,” and the pink, which is a long-lasting semi-sheer color with a hint of shimmer, is “Constant Toast.” Constant Toast is a perfect every day color, and Keep Up The Flame is an absolutely gorgeous red, perfect for the holidays! So if you’re looking for a fabulous and affordable long-lasting lipstick, I highly recommend giving this a try. Berry Persistent, Constant Cocoa and Very Cranberry are calling my name!
