I'd like to prefact this post by saying that I only realised that I selected Maybelline lip products as the first and second ever 'Lip of the Week' by complete accident. In fact, it wasn't until after I finished the post that I even realised this fact. I am in no way affiliated with Maybelline, just (clearly) a fan of their lip products!
That being said, the other week when I was sick and spending ridiculous amounts of money on doctor bills and medication, I decided to spoil myself with a new lipstick while waiting for my prescriptions to be filled.
I picked up one of Maybelline's new Super Stay 14-hour lipsticks in hope that I would be able to solve my constant problem with the lipstick reapply. I love putting lipstick on in the morning before leaving the house, but I haven't exactly mastered the reapply. I feel weird taking my lipstick to the bathroom to touch up through the day, pulling out a make up mirror and reapplying at my desk, or reapplying after meals. It just feels so bizarre to me.
I put lip balm on all through the day to avoid dry, chapped lips but you can put lip balm on without a mirror and not have to worry about smudging or going outside of the natural lip line. Lipstick, not so much!
The Maybelline 14-hour lipstick is pretty good. It's not drying like lots of lipsticks. The colour I chose was Ultimate Blush and it is shimmery and very pink, just how I like a lipstick! The colour doesn't last for 14 hours, I'm sorry but with eating and drinking, it would be near impossible to sustain the full colour. But, admitedly, the colour did stay on for most of the day so I will call it somewhat of a success!
I find lipsticks difficult because I have little lips, but the shape of this lipstick is perfect and the packaging is great.
All in all, the Maybelline 14-hour lipstick has been my favourite lipstick for a couple of weeks, but it is getting the official Lipstick of the Week honour this week!
Have you got any tips for me in my quest to tackle the lipstick reapply? Have you tried any of the Maybelline 14-hour range? What did you think?
