Another day, another Maybelline lip product. Today I want to tell you about the Super Stay 24 Hr Bold Matte lip product. These are double ended with a liquid lip colour at one end and a balm at the other.
I bought this a few weeks ago in Boots along with one of the new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids as there was a buy one get one half price deal on. I hadn't seen these Super Stay 24 Hr products before so I assumed they were new with them being on the promotional stand but after further investigation I discovered this one was a new shade with a matte formula but there is an extensive range of existing colours.
The shade I chose is 810 Peach Cocktail, which is more pink than peach but it's gorgeous anyway. I love the lipgloss style wand applicator for the liquid lipstick as it makes it so easy to apply. You can get a very pigmented look by applying a few thin layers of this product.
Once the lipstick is dry, you can add some of the balm to keep your lips hydrated. Make sure your lipstick is fully dry though as I made a bit of a mess with this last weekend in a rush waiting for my taxi to arrive. The balm made the lipstick go all lumpy on my lips so I had to remove it and start again!
I don't normally buy matte lip products but I'm very impressed with this as I didn't have to reapply it at all on my night out. I was out from 6pm to 2am so this is pretty amazing! Also, I have to admit that I went to bed with my makeup on (I know, naughty!) and this was still going in the morning. I wouldn't have stepped out of the house with it on as it wasn't looking it's best but it was still there.
I think this product would be perfect for a romantic meal as you wouldn't have to worry about your lipstick coming off while you are eating. Also it won't come off on your other half either ;)
I definitely think Maybelline is producing some fab products at the moment so I'll be keeping a close eye on their stands at Boots! What brands have you been loving lately?
