Maybelline 14 hr lipstick in Stay With Me Coral: Swatches & Review

There are very few times in my life that i actually feel like entering a kitchen to cook something that’s not a cake/brownie/pie. I think God just forgot to give me the cooking gene, along with the  figuring out directions gene. But today i said “Gene or no Gene, dammit i am going to cook something!” So  A  day that consisted of  a trip to the mall for a movie , some grocery shopping, and 2 hours of browsing food blogs finally led to home cooked dinner by wifey (for the first time since my wedding ) in the Shahani Household! On the menu tonight was Sesame Chicken and Rice, served by an exhausted girl in PJ’s covered with cornflour and sesame seeds with bright, coral lipstick on her lips. You know when she applied that lipstick? 11 am…you know what time it is now …10 : 00 pm , yup true to its name, the Maybelline 14 hr Lipstick is definitely ‘Staying With Me’  all through the day!

Stay With me Coral is a Bright , Vivid Pink Coral . It looks pinker on your lips than it does swatched on the arm, but its a really bright, pretty color for warmer skin tones. If you are looking for a bright lipstick on a budget that still suits medium skintones, Stay With Me Coral will not dissappoint! It reminds me a bit of Colorbar Flirtatious Pink Take Me as i Am Lipcolor actually, except this is ‘matter’ and a tad  brighter.

So here is the deal with these 14 hr lipsticks. They are super pigmented, like swoosh one swipe and you have full blown color. They also last REALLY long, i mean they really don’t let go of your lips for a good 10 hours. I’m constantly looking in the mirror going Whaaa? Yr still there you tiny little thing? Why are you not half swallowed, smeared, evaporated or transferred on the boys cheek yet? ;)

Sounds great right? Well yeah…except that these get kind of drying over time. When you apply them , they are pretty comfortable..but within an hour you definitely start to feel the dryness. Moreover, they arent creamy so they don’t really glide very softly and they sort of drag on your lips when you apply. Whether you like the finish or not is a personal choice, i prefer softer mattes like the Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks, these are kind of like harsh mattes and thats why i think they are quite drying too!

Other things to note- the fragrance is like candy!! Fruit Candy. Oh and these are not cheap- i just think in this price bracket there is a fair bit of competition and the Maybelline 14 hr lipsticks need some tweaks in the texture department to truly knock out others in this segment!!

 Verdict: B

Product: 3/5,  Pigmentation: 4/5,  Texture: 2.5/5,  Longevity: 5/5,   Value for Money & Packaging: 2.5/5

Price: Rs 525/-

Recommendation: Maybelline 14 hr lipstick in STay with me coral is a gorgeous bright coral pink that is likely to flatter warmer skin tones. There is no denying this is a unique,  stunner of a shade , and its a color i absolutely adore. While these are very pigmented and last for a good 10 hours on me, they are quite drying and im not a fan of the finish-they are not buttery, or soft mattes. Whats bothering me really is that in this price bracket there are many other great lipsticks to choose from…so it all comes down to whether these are value for money or not.

Haha, nice post. The lipstick’s pretty. I totally agree with you abt the “figuring out directions” gene. The other day this person was asking me for directions to my house and it was so embarrassing. I kept saying, “Take this road, then left…I think? Look, why don’t you just ask for XZY store..everyone knows it ” I can’t give directions to me OWN home! I sure fit the ”women have no direction sense” stereotype :(


Peachesandblush February 3, 2013 at 9:57 pm

haha well i cant find my way back home if you take me from m home to place X…it just doesnt happen


Sukanya February 2, 2013 at 10:59 pm

Am not sure but the hand swatch seems to be a bit uneven ? Is the application with this lippi smooth?? Pretty vibrant shade indeed… but tad bit overpriced it seems !


Peachesandblush February 2, 2013 at 11:30 pm

No it drags on your lips :(
It isnt creamy enough tob give you like a smooth application


Sukanya February 3, 2013 at 1:48 am

awww :( am staying away from this then !


Laura August 18, 2013 at 6:06 pm

I agree with you…. This doesnt give a creamy mattefying effect…. its too dry…:(… Im more satisfied with colour sensation.


Swati February 2, 2013 at 11:02 pm

The colour is pretty but then the drying factor is a big off na?
Plus I am still trying to get comfortable with all the bright colours..

I loved your introduction though! Its nice reading through your posts! :)


Embellished February 2, 2013 at 11:38 pm

priya February 3, 2013 at 1:30 am

I was so desperately waiting for this range but it was a big disappointment for me, didn’t pick a single shade from this range as it’s very dry n not worth the outlay, thanx for sharing, TC


Ash February 3, 2013 at 2:40 am

pretty color!! Too bad it’s so drying.


Orangepink February 3, 2013 at 10:00 am

Beautiful color… But its looking lil dry n i like gloss.


deepti February 3, 2013 at 10:41 am

The color is pretty , but it looks dry.. there is no sign of creaminess in the bullet


kriti February 3, 2013 at 12:48 pm

Are you saying its dry….no no then i am not trying this out though i liked the coral color


MissBoPeep February 3, 2013 at 2:28 pm

Maybelline has this thing to make these silicon based lipsticks which are no doubt very long lasting but very very drying and terrible texture. Remember these used to one more Maybelline lipstick with gloss like thing on one end and balm on other end. It had the same drying problem.
I love the color though. And pigmentation is just too good, I agree.
BTW pls share the Sesame Chicken Recipe :) Would love to try it.


Bhumika February 3, 2013 at 4:04 pm

I always used a lip balm glided fine..havent tried without lip balm..I have dry lips forever :/


MissBoPeep February 3, 2013 at 6:00 pm

Bhumika, try this simple ghar ka nuska in the link below and get rid of your dry lips!

All the best!


Nitya February 3, 2013 at 4:52 pm

Rajvi Bhow February 4, 2013 at 12:21 pm

Did this last even after you ate and drank water.. cos the moment my lips touch food all my lipstick starts wearing off.. dunno if its just me or happens with everyone?


mehak February 4, 2013 at 1:28 pm

Hey Mehak ,
I have been a slient reader for your blog for quite a long time.I loved this post and could not resist myself commenting.I always admire the way you write PR. I am crazy for coral colors and would definitely check this out!


thedelhibride February 5, 2013 at 6:40 pm

i love this shade! and can u believe it, my MOTHER bought this before me, and she’s been using it for all outings since!


Tanzeem February 9, 2013 at 4:00 am

I sooo love the color!!!
Nice review


Anuradha February 18, 2013 at 12:21 am

Ahh-I have such a similar opinion as yours for this lippy-I like the color-but the texture kinda turns me off-its heavy and after applying it feels sticky :/ I prefer smoother matte lippys like colorbar and chambor :)


Sudha February 21, 2013 at 1:26 pm

Lovely swatch


khushi March 23, 2013 at 9:16 pm

the product lasts long on your lips because its dry
if it was a cream based product it would easily smudge and would not be able to compete with food or beverages


mehak March 24, 2013 at 1:04 pm

Thats true. The dryer a lipstick, the longer it lasts. but take for example Colorbar velvet mattes. Theyr not half as drying as these ones and last quite a long ti,e.


Megha April 1, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Its a lovely shade…Ur lips are looking fuller :)
