Maybelline Super Stay 14HR Lipstick In Lasting Chestnut Swatches & Review (6) Maybelline Superstay 14HR Lipstick In Lasting Chestnut Review

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..

Product description:

  • Meet the 14HR lipstick that won’t weigh you down.
  • Super rich color with super staying power.
  • No dragging. No drying. No letdowns at all.

Why You’ll Love It

  • 14HR Lipstick with an ultra-lightweight formula
  • Stays fresh, light, and comfortable
  • Super rich color that lasts for 14 hours
  • Pigments are enveloped in a longwearing system
  • 20 long wearing shades

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

Nays about Maybelline New York Superstay 14 hrs.Lipstick in Lasting Chestnut:

  1. Weird smell.
  2. Cheap looking & non travel friendly packaging.
  3. Not true to its claim of staying power of 14 hours.
  4. Can dry out your lips

Rating: B+

Price: Rs.525/- for 3.3 grams of product.

Recommendation: It is a good budget buy @Rs.525/- with the results it delivers:-). A total value for money product which you will love if you prefer a pulled together, neat and sophisticated look. While they do end up drying a bit, and they feel a bit stiff to apply, these are a good range to try for everyday office wear and this color would suit a corporate job to a T !

I like the finish and staying power of these but a bit too drying for me. I really like the shade Enduring Ruby though.

I’ve got 2 really bright lipsticks (Ravishing Rouge and Infinitely Fuchsia) from the same range, and although I do not particularly enjoy the quality, I love the bold colours.

I don’t know if I received a bad piece, but my ‘Eternal Rose’ lipstick from this range became so dry and hard within 3 months it was impossible to get any color out of it. I jad to throw it out. Sad, because the color was lovely.
