Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor

I hoped you all watched my latest youtube video and liked it =). I usually don't make videos, but there were too many things to take pictures of it all. So my spring break ends today and I'm super sad =(. I don't want to go back to school yet! Only a month and a half before summer! The posts will start to diminish again, but hopefully I won't stop all together. I'll try to write a few today and post them sparingly. The final stretch before summer! Got any summer plans?

Apply the liquid color to your clean, bare lips. Then it’s two minutes to perfection! Remember to allow a full two minutes to dry, then apply ultra-conditioning balm to seal in softness. Reapply balm as needed. Remove with gentle Maybelline New York Superaway Lipcolor Remover.

What the Maybelline website states:

  • Flexible formula moves with your lips for no caking or flaking
  • Ultra-conditioning, refillable balm seals in softness for all-day comfort
  • Golden Shimmer Balm refillable topcoat available for extra dazzle on any color
  • Superaway Lipcolor Remover with Vitamin E gently removes all traces of long wear lipcolor
  • Lasts up to 16 hours
My Thoughts:
This product is okay... not the best in the world. I've had it for maybe 6 months and I've had to toss it already because it started to smell weird. The original scent is like a watermelon scent which I loved. The staying power is definitely there, but it dries out my lips soooo much. The balm that is supposed to be put over the lipcolor sucks too. I had to use my own chapstick to moisturize my lips. Definitely not ultra-conditioning... The color I bought is Plum which is like a deep pinky plum color; gorgeous. Their color selection isn't too bad, but like most drugstore brands, there isn't much to choose from. I wouldn't buy this again and don't reccomend it.
