I think I am the last one to hop on the band-wagon but I finally decided to try out the Maybelline New York Super Stay 24 Hour Color and I chose the shade Timeless Rose (090). I was pretty inquisitive about their 24 hour stay claim and I wanted to get a nude shade from Maybelline. I have used this lippie on various occasions and under different circumstances and today I feel ready to share my experience and views about it.
About The Looks!
The lip color comes in a dual-ended packaging, where one end has the liquid lipstick and the other end has the gloss stick. Except the part holding the liquid lipstick, all of it is white in color. The tube has the name of the brand and the product printed on with the claims as well. It comes wrapped in a plastic film which has the price and ingredients printed on. The packaging is pretty unique and different from all other lipsticks that I own, hence very easy to spot.
Price – 600/-

My views and thoughts about the Maybelline New York Super Stay 24 Hour Color and I chose the shade Timeless Rose (090)!
When I first used the lipstick, I wasn’t too sure about its claim and performance. Application part was easy and nice, the wand is actually good and firm which makes it easy to apply the liquid lipstick without making any mistake. Then comes the weird part! After a few seconds of application, the liquid lipstick starts to dry but in a very strange way. It gets sticky and tacky and it feels like glue! The lips kind of stick together every time you close or open your mouth. This strange thing lasts for about a couple of minutes and then dies down. This is when the lipstick is completely dry.
At first, I didn’t like the stickiness of this but after using it a couple of more times, I got used to it. While applying the lipstick it feels very light and watery, but then it starts to thicken up. The finish is matte but the liquid lipstick itself is shimmery. Not glittery, but it has a shine. So even if it dries matte, it still has a sheen to it and looks creamy or slightly glossy.
The color is a very pretty pinky nude and I love the way it looks at the day time and with any smokey eye makeup! It’s perfect for day-time, office wear or with a smokey eye! It’s one of the most beautiful pinky nude I have in my kitty. Usually, I don’t like sheen in my lipsticks, but this one is an exception, the color actually looks better with this sheen! The pigmentation is really good! You will get the desired color and opaqueness with just one coat! You really won’t need a second layer. There is no streakiness or patchiness in the application!
Once, it’s set, MAN, it doesn’t go anywhere!! It will stay on for the longest of the time! I have an experience of wearing it for 8 hours straight with light meals and it doesn’t budge! However, if you are having a full and heavy meal the lipstick fades from the inner part of the lips. So, with meals, I would say it can last up to 8 – 9 hours and then it will start fading a little. I really don’t mind that because I don’t wear lipstick for more than 8 hours, even it is a wedding and I am up all night! It actually does the job for me. The claim of 24-hours stay will definitely come true if meals are excluded.
I honestly love this lipstick and I would like to try other shades from this collection. The color is beautiful and the lasting power is awesome! Initially the stickiness did bother me a little, but later on, I got used to it and I don’t mind it anymore. It anyway lasts just for a couple of minutes. I would certainly recommend everyone to try this product out! A good product for a reasonable price!
