After having already tried Eternal Rose and Keep me Coral from this range, I was intrigued to try an everyday office wear shade that I could pull off effortlessly . When the SA suggested this to me, I instantly loved it with the very first swatch itself. I felt as if my search for a decent long lasting office appropriate lipstick had finally come to an end with this beauty..

For Best Results: Apply your lipcolour by starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.
Colour and Smell: The USP of this particular lipstick is its lovely and natural looking colour. In the bullet it kind of looks like a more mature colour but on my lips it transforms into a soft brown shade with a mix of peach and slightly red undertones. The colour is such that it will never ever wash out Indian skin tones be it fair or dusky. However the artificial and weird smell is kind of a turn-off factor for me, but thankfully this smell disappears quickly post application.
My experience with Maybelline New York Superstay 14 hrs.Lipstick in Lasting Chestnut:
I love this colour for my office, it gives that lovely dash of colour to my face without ever looking OTT. It is the perfect “I mean business, but Im not boring” office shade. Believe me girls the environment of my office is like ultra-conventional as far as makeup is concerned and I can’t even think of wearing just a tad bit bright shades there. Not only have I received compliments for the shade but I have also motivated other ladies in my office to get this lippy :-). Now coming to the texture- the texture although is not buttery smooth yet it is also not overtly drying or hard. This lippy glides easily without tugging or pulling my lips and never feels heavy or cakey.
On pigmentation front also this beauty scores full marks- just a gentle swipe and you will get the soft hue of colour on your lips. You can also layer it on for intense effect- it will never accentuate imperfections of your lips. Now the main reason which made me purchased i this lippy- the staying power. W
Staying power may not be 14hrs, but it does last you 5 hrs which is decent, though if you have a very heavy meal in between it may not last as much . If there is a downside it is the fact that these are quite drying and non creamy , so hydrate underneath
