Maybelline's Superstay Lipcolor Review
Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor is a two-step, long-lasting lip color that goes and goes - as long as 16 hours at a stretch. But as with other two-step formulas, following directions on the package is strongly advised. As one harried blogger writes in a Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor review on Busymom.net, it's hard to correct mistakes when applying the bottom color coat, which must dry thoroughly before applying the conditioning balm. Maybelline says to allow a full two minutes for drying and to make sure your lips are clean. The top and bottom coats are applied with different ends of same stick: a sponge-tip applicator for the liquid color and a balm stick for the conditioner. In case the balm is used up before the color, refills can be purchased for about $3; an initial investment in Superstay Lipcolor costs about $8.
Does Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor live up its 16-hour claim? Well, a user review of Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor on Thebeautybunny.com says it lasted about a quarter of the advertised duration but concedes she's hard on lipstick, and yet, she remains impressed by its smooth application and wearability. According to Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor reviews on Amazon.com, the product lasts a good eight hours and must be cleaned off with makeup remover. Realage.com has named Maybelline Superstay as the best inexpensive, long-lasting lip paint and Redbook magazine gave it the Most Valuable Product Beauty Award in 2006.
