Maybelline New York SuperStay 14 Hour Lipsticks have been recently launched in India, and the folks at Maybelline India sent me one of the lipsticks to try out. Which is all nice, but my mom opened the package, fell in love with the color, and immediately claimed it for herself - so much for beauty blogging benefits. Anyway, she loves it so much (and it does look quite nice on her, hmmmph), I had to go out and buy one for myself!

Maybelline New York Super Stay 14 Hour Lipsticks have a different packaging from the Color Sensationals that I am so used to.  These have a transparent base with a pretty accurate replica of the lipstick color showing through - very useful especially if you have to shop in stores with no testers.  Please Stay Plum is a brownish-based soft plum with a golden shimmer mixed in.  Ordinarily that description alone would have convinced me to run miles away from this shade, but it looked so good on my mom, I had to give it a try.

Already a softer plum, Please Stay Plum gets a beautiful warmth from the hint of brown in the base and the shimmer mixed in.  This shimmer that's so clearly visible in the lipstick itself almost melts into the skin when swatched, only adding a warm golden glow to the lipstick rather than chunky glitter.  Here's how the Maybelline New York Super Stay 14 Hour Lipstick in Please Stay Plum looks swatched.

As is seen in the swatches above, the lipstick isn't super-opaque but not really sheer either.  Depending on my mood, I can wear it softly blended into my lips, letting some of my natural lip color mix in with the plum and making this a very daytime appropriate plum.  The texture is almost matte, but the shimmer added in gives a bit of shine to the lipstick when applied more heavily as in my earlier photo.  Here's how the slightly softer version of Maybelline Please Stay Plum looks on me - there's less shine and the color is a very wearable plum, at least on my darker skin tone.

For a softer effect, I dabbed the lipstick on to my lips, keeping most of the color on the center of the lips,
then used a lip brush to even out the color and cover the lips.
Maybelline New York Super Stay 14 Hour lipstick in Please Stay Plum is the sort of color that works just as easily whether you are looking for a wearable plum for the day or a beautiful, warm plum for the evening.  The texture is almost matte with a hint of shine because of the barely visible shimmer.  The color payoff is pretty good, and even softer, sheer application covers up my unevenly pigmented lips pretty well.  It feels slightly dry going on the lips, so if you are applying the lipstick directly on to the lips, I would definitely recommend smoothing out the lips (either with a scrub or a gentle old toothbrush) to avoid any flaky bits getting picked up and magnified by the lipstick as it glides on.  That apart, though, even on my very dryness-prone lips, the formula felt quite comfortable and did not dry out my lips one bit.  I got a good amount of wear time with this lipstick, and it lasted through my lunch, fading only slightly and leaving a beautiful even stain at the end of the day.  Overall, a definite must-have for me - and for my makup-loving mom :D

  3. Looks lovely on you. They have a very pretty bright pink too, I think its eternal rose.
    My only grouse is that they don't have any creamy, non-shimmer peachy-beigy nude in this (in india at least). Would be gr8 to have that kind of colour in a long wear lippie.
