Simply Lippy Challenge Day 246 | Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Colour in Shade 125, Natural Flush

I’ve had a bit of a love/hate relationship with Maybelline lipsticks over the duration of my challenge so far. Some of their products like the Baby Lips colour balm are amazing to use, but others, not so much.

So when trying out this duo lippy from them today, naturally I was intrigued to see whether it was good or not, and to be honest, I’m still trying to make up my mind.

There is a two-step process to this lipstick, first you apply the intense liquid lip colour, then once that’s dried in, you apply the lip balm side over it to seal the colour and moisturise the lips.

I’ll start with the positives first: the big claim of this lipstick is incredible lasting power and I have to admit, it is pretty good. While 24 hours may be a bit of a stretch, it definitely held in place a lot longer than most and kept its colour throughout.

The lip balm itself does feel very moisturising, and I like how it gives the colour a soft sheen rather than a super high shine gloss which is what you get with most duo lip products.

However, it does have some negatives for me, the main one being the lack of pigment. Maybe it’s because the shade is so light, but I had to layer this over and over again to try build any real colour. Not only that, but because it’s a liquid and takes a while to dry, it kept dragging the colour underneath meaning I couldn’t get a full coverage finish at all.

I am wondering if it might be better in a darker shade so I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt until I try another shade, but until then I think the jury is out on this one.
