#Giveaway: Maybelline SuperStay 24™ 2-Step LipColor (CLOSED)

I hate lipstick.

It feels funny.

It gets on my teeth.

It gets on my teacup.

It gets on hubby if I kiss him.

It gets on the kiddos when I hug them.

It comes off. I have to constantly reapply it.

Doesn’t seem worth the trouble, does it?

After all, I’m not a super-model or anything. It’s not like I’m constantly in front of the cameras.

But every once in a while I try another one, because I do go out sometimes.

It would be nice to not be a colorless ghost.

It would nice to have long-lasting lipcolor that really stays put.

It would be nice to have a lipstick that didn’t require makeup artistry to apply.

Wear On Wildberry

Not bad!

Maybelline SuperStay 24 2-Step LipColor is formulated with Microflex (sounds high-tech, doesn’t it?) and will resist flaking, crumbling and transfer. What does that mean? It means you can kiss your honey without leaving a big red smudge on his cheek (or his collar) and drink your coffee with impunity. And you can get by without sneaking off to the bathroom every hour or so to re-apply your color.

How’s it work?

010

First, you apply the color.

011

The flexible applicator is easy to use. No glops or straying over the lip-line. It has a sweet taste/smell going on that fades as it dries.

Let it dry a couple of minutes.

Then apply the clear gloss.

012

The gloss will wear off, but can easily be re-applied without a mirror (or even use your favorite lip balm).

The end result is good. Not sticky or stiff or heavy. In fact, I soon forgot I was wearing it.

Let’s do a blot test.

030

034

Just the teeniest bit of transfer (a few teeny flakes you probably can’t see here).

No transfer to my coffee mug.

048

But, can it survive a full-fledged wipe?

037

Well, no…but the color was still going strong.

061

Did it last all day?

Uh, nope. That buttery popcorn followed by a napkin wipe in the evening definitely did it in. The directions do say to remove it with an oil-based makeup remover, lol.

At least it’s a tasty way to take off your makeup.

So what did I think?

I’m not an everyday makeup wearer, in fact I go without more often than I wear it. But I’ve tried Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color several times over the past couple of weeks, and I’m impressed.

No, it doesn’t really last 24-hours, but if you can avoid wiping your mouth (dab like the delicate lady you are, wink) and getting grease on you lips, it does last most of the day, and that’s really good enough for most of us.

I love that it’s light and that I can forget that I’m wearing lip color at all, because I don’t have to worry about getting it on anyone or anything.

I love that it comes in 30 different colors!

Right now, this is my favorite color:

  4. I hate lipstick for all the reasons that you hate it. I hate it so much that now my teen daughters don't even want to try it ... though one always looks like she's wearing lipstick anyway ... lucky girl. But being colorless myself, I keep wanting to try lipstick again. Except the price to just "try something" makes me balk (more like gag), especially if I pick a bad color. So, I'd love to win this!!

  6. I am an everyday makeup wearer and I love the no smudge stuff but bought the wrong color- it's ghastly. I've not tried this particular brand and would love to have the chance. :-)

    I'm not sure if it'll work with this brand, but I've found that if you reapply lip gloss throughout the day, the color lasts longer.

  10. I love lipstick. I usually just use the colored Burt's Bees because it's chapstick and it lasts and it has color. But I'd be willing to try this.

  14. I came across your blog through UBP11 and wanted to say I LOVE the SuperStay 24. I've been using mine for quite some time and it works great. I really dislike having to reapply lipstick after every meal, drinking something, etc. I never have to reapply this. :)

  15. sounds pretty nice, and hey, if it lasts for the most part...it works for me! ;-)
