I have been waiting for this range to come over from America for a while, so as soon as I saw it in my local Boots store, I picked one up! I decided to go for the shade "Forever Fuchsia" as I didn't want to spend money on a colour that I already have.
|//Maybelline Super Stay 10 Hour Tint Gloss in "Forever Fuchsia": RRP £6.99//|
On first Application:
The heart shaped applicator helps the product to glide on. It felt quite wet and gives a slight cooling feeling. I used two applications so as to make sure that I had covered my lips well. I thought that the colour was gorgeous, very pigmented and bold. This was the result after the first application. After I went on with my day.
A few hours later:
Later on, after eating and drinking as normal, I wasn't too sure about it. The glossy effect had completely gone, and it had turned a bit dry, which is a big no-no for me as I really do not like drying products. Also, the product had faded in the corners of my mouth.
However, I then decided to put on some ordinary lip balm, blending it onto my lips with my finger, and afterwards it turned into a really nice tint! The colour had died down and it had stained my lips with a lovely deep pink colour. It also helped blend out the fading parts at the corners of my mouth.
My overall thoughts on this product are that it is quite good for a long wearing lip product, keeping in mind that it is a tint. After it had dried, it was quite difficult to work with, however on using the lip balm I was a lot more impressed by it. While it is long wearing, it does not last 10 hours, lasting on my lips around 4 hours (with balm application). Also, don't expect the fantastic colour that you receive at the start throughout this time as it does fade.
Although I do like the effect, I don't think I'll buy any other shades from the range as I wasn't impressed with how much it faded. Saying that, in comparison to other long wearing lip products, I liked the fact that it didn't go clumpy like so many others do.
Has anyone else tried this range or any other long wearing lip products? Which were your favourite?
