Apologies for my lack of posts lately. I have honestly had no motivation let alone any ideas as to what to blog about. I have been busy with work and life and blogging has just taken a back seat. I hope writing about lipsticks will help me get my blogging mojo back. If you have any post ideas please comment down below!
Since starting work I have realised how important it is for make up to be long wearing. Especially working in a customer service role, I am facing customers and need to look presentable. I have found a perfect affordable option for a long wearing and comfortable lipstick. That is the Maybelline Super Stay 14hr Lipsticks.
I originally purchased one when they came out last year and used it a couple of times but then I purchased new lipsticks and well forgot about it. Then at Chemist Warehouse I fell in love with a shade and remembered about the one in the back of my drawer. I then purchased a third shade recently.
These lipsticks are advertised as 14 hours of wear. Honestly I do not get that long and I doubt anyone would unless lipsticks always last a long time on your lips. Personally, lipsticks never last long on me - I lick my lips a lot. I have found these lipsticks last a good 5-6 hours on my lips even with drinking and eating.
I was surprised by how comfortable these are. My past experiences have found long wearing lipsticks to be very drying and uncomfortable. These are not, I find my lips still feel quite hydrated whilst wearing these.
I currently own three shades. There is around 12 shades available, only these three really appealed to me. They are shown in the same order in all the photos as listed below.
- 005 Perpetual Peony - I love this shade for work, it is a gorgeous soft pink that looks lovely on the lips.
- 010 Ultimate Blush - My most recent purchase and I am still not quite sold on it. It has a sort of metallic finish to it.
- 020 Eternal Rose - This was of course the first one I purchased, I will always love my bright pinks. Not so appropriate for work though...
The Maybelline Super Stay 14hr Lipsticks retail for $18.95 each from Maybelline stockists. I have never paid full price though. These are more highly recommended lipsticks from me. I really like wearing them and they are a great price (especially when on sale).
Have you tried the Maybelline Super Stay 14hr Lipsticks? What is your favourite long wearing lipstick?
