Maybelline Superstay 14HR Lipsticks Review & Swatches

I've already given you a preview of Maybelline Superstay 14HR Lipsticks, so you can click here to see more pics. I have 2 shades: Infinitely Fuchsia & Stay With Me Coral, and will talk about them separately here.
Finish: Semi-matte & opaque with some sheen. They are not velvety matte (like MAC or Colorbar mattes). I'd say they feel kind of sticky- used sellotape sticky. For a smooth application, you have to avoid locking your lips in between. It's one of those high maintenance lipsticks.
14 hours, really? Not really. They last, but the texture start to crack like candle wax and begin to look flaky where your lips meet, after eating & drinking. Then it's uneven city. Maybe they'll last that long only on the outer edges =D
Fragranced? Yes. They smell of cherries.... maybe even pineapple pastry. I love.
Packaging: Cute. Young. Color coordinated- every shade has its own individual matching casing.
Infinitely Fuchsia 160: I'm so in love with this vibrant fuchsia color. If you're looking for a true blue-based fuchsia, this might be up your street. You can see how intense & opaque it is, and that's what I like best about it. It is more intense & deeper than Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #32 Satin Fuchsia

Price ~ £6.99 (Rs.621) from Superdrug (3 for 2 offer). In India: Rs.525
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 3.8/5

Stay With Me Coral 430: This was the first shade I noticed, so it was sort of love at first sight. I have shown you the bumps on the lipstick bullet, and I thought they'd go away/be smoothed out after I've used it several times, but NO. They keep reappearing! They have ruined this super gorgeous color for me. Really, what the heck is the deal with this?! I feel like chopping half of it off. I'm taking it back to Superdrug. I don't know what's the return policy for something like this, but I'll be pissed if they refuse, because I still like this color very much. Btw, I tried blotting & reapplying and have wiped the tip on a tissue.
The bumps. Somehow they multiplied while I was using it for these swatches =[

My Rating ~ ????? [First I have to find out if these bumps appear in every Stay With Me Coral or not.]

[These pics were taken on a rather gloomy day, that's why the lipsticks look duller]
Stay With Me Coral, Infinitely Fuchsia
Swatches: Stay With Me Coral, Infinitely Fuchsia

In A Nutshell:
Impressive pigmentation & somewhat long-wear. But I think a lot of people would find the finish very uncomfortable. I don't see myself buying another one, and you know I'm usually greedy with lipsticks & I'm always up for buying more shades when I love them. However, if you put color before comfort, this range has some pretty ones.

What do you think?

  6. These look so pretty, both of them! I've had the 'bumpy' experience with a Lakme lipstick, recently. I thought it was close to expiration.

    1. Ohh ya that could be why...but that's not the case with this one


  7. Love the shade "Stay with me COral" but the finish is so o_O ...

  8. Loved the especially looks great on you.

  9. Absolutely found these two shades so beautiful! Its just too bad that the coral one has funny bits and leaves it on your lips! I know what you mean by being greedy! I too am too greedy and must cut down!

  10. Might be I will just buy 1 or 2 :p

  11. Did you use a lip liner? Such perfect application. And the colors are really pretty.

  12. Amazing pigmentation. The colours are stunning! I love the Stay With Me Coral shade especially. They both look beautiful on you! xx

  13. hadn't you said these flakes, they are amazingly pretty shades and with attractive packaging

  14. Yeah the shades are spot on cute but the formula looks like a nightmare >: So sad when that happens.

  15. Hello, I'm from Spain so excuse my english.
    The "Stay with me coral" problem is exactly the same annoying thing that I got when I use the "Sleek - Heartbreaker" it's the worst thing ever, and it's not that the lipstick is damaged... it's like this.

    It's so annoying because I love the colour but it's impossible to wear.

    So, I just wanted to post this :) You're not alone hahaha. Nice blog, cheers from Spain!

  16. Hey kindly replay tell me which camera you use ???

  17. I'm going to buy Perpetual Peony for back to school!!! <333 I'm going more for the natural soft look this year!


I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
