Review - Maybelline Superstay 14 Hr Lipstick (Endless Raisin)

I am a huge fan of long staying lipsticks, but most of the long staying lipsticks make the lips dry and flaky. So I was very excited when Maybelline launched their 14 Hours long stay Lipsticks, hoping they would be great!


What the Product Claims:

Maybelline's most innovative long wear lipstick yet, weightless color goes on in one step and stays put for 14 full hours, staying fresh, light and oh so comfortable. No dragging, no drying, and no letdowns. Apply your lip color by starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

• 14 hour long lasting lipstick with an ultra-lightweight formula
• Stays fresh, light, and comfortable
• Super rich lip color that lasts for 14 hours
• Pigments are enveloped in a long wearing system
• 16 smudge free lipstick shades



Price: Rs.525/- for 3.3g


My Experience with Maybelline Superstay 14 Hr Lipstick:

The packaging of the lipsticks is ok-ayish. It comes with a transparent lower half body which makes it easy to identify the shades when you have a bunch of these. On the other hand the cap is white in color which is not so appealing. I would have preferred a black glossy cap or any metallic type cap that would make the packaging look classy. (I dont know! anything but white.. :D)


The lipstick has a slight fruity fragrance which is not overpowering and fades away post application. The texture of the Lipstick is creamy initially and post application it sets and gives a nice matte finish.

The shade Endless Raisin is a nice mauvy-brown shade. It might look just brown on fair skin tones, dusky skin tones would be able to pull this color with ease.


 The only problem with this being a long lasting lipstick is that its not a great option for dry and flaky lips, it would definitely exaggerate the issue. The best thing that can be done is scrubbing the lips and moisturizing before application would help.


As far as the 14 Hour claim is concerned, this one lasted a max of 4 Hours on me, this being a MLBB kind of shade for me i did not expected that long wear. But i am guessing the the bold & dark shades from this range would definitely last longer than this one.
