Bzz, Bzz: Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color Lipcolor
22 April 2011
Another Bzz Campaign - this one is ending, so I'm a little behind on posting about it. Whoopsie! But, I have been using the four different shades of Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color that BzzAgent sent me, so that I could write a legitimate review.
I've been using them quite a lot, actually, because I really like them. And they work very well!
The premise is not what I expected it to be when I opened my package. I figured it would be another long-wearing lip stain, that would dry out my lips and get all flaky and be gross, and I would hate it.
But it's not!
On one end of the tube is the applicator for the color. It goes on smoothly and saturates the lips very well. You can rub your lips together without them sticking right away, too, which I like.
And then, on the other end, is the glossy bit, an applicator to make them shiny and more rub-able, like a lip balm.
So you're supposed to be able to apply the color part once, and then re-apply the glossy part as needed throughout the day. And the color's supposed to last all day, even through eating, drinking, kissing, and whatever else you nasty people might do with your lips.
Just kidding. You're not nasty. Well, maybe you are, but I wouldn't know.
Well, Smellyann? Does it work, or not?
The answer is: Well, kinda. Yes and no.
The color DOES last through all those activities, but I found that it did eventually wear off by the end of the day, if I applied it first thing in the morning. So it doesn't rub off after I drink and eat - and smooch - but it would need to re-apply the color if I were going out for the evening, too. Which is fine. I mean, I can handle applying lipcolor twice in a day. It's when I have to stop and do it 4700 times in a day to keep color on my lips that gets really annoying. Right?
So, in my estimation, it's completely worth the ten bucks (MSRP). Try it. You'll like it. And if you don't, give it to me, I'll use it!
P.S. There are supposed to be (or have been) coupons for this product on Facebook somewhere, for me to share with you, but I could never find them, which is why it took me so long to post this. If you find them, let me know, and I'll add the link. Thanks!
