SuperStay 10HR Stain Gloss™ - Lip Gloss By Maybelline

This is my new found favorite fall lip combination so far this season.  I am a lip "junkie" and if you go through my makeup collection, one would find a massive amount of lip products everywhere.  With that being said, I am a huge fan of dramatic lips.  This ranges from pretty pinks, classic reds, mysterious dark plum lips, to sassy oranges and all colors in between.  I discovered this awesome duo today and I just had to share with all of you how well these two products work together.

Lets first start off with the Super Stay Stain Gloss.  I was immediately drawn to this color in the store because of the purple.  It was a pretty shade from what it was supposed to look like on the colored cap.  Again, I love bold and so I just went with this color because I feel like I have so many neutral pinkish reds if you know what I mean.  This product is supposed to act like a stain and a lipgloss in one and I feel like it does a decent job at what it claims to do.  I do find the consistency of the product to be a little weird and it seems to smell a bit like kool aid or some sort of flavored children's drink.  I do like how it has a very wide and flat applicator brush.  It covers a lot of lip and the brush is easy to work with.  You need to let the product dry a bit before you start rubbing your lips together or licking them.  The stain usually stays on my lips for a few hours which in my opinion is pretty decent.  I would much rather have something stay on my lips for a few hours and not have to worry too much about it fading and such.  Does it last 10 hours?  Heck no.  But, I do think it is one of the better stains on the market for sure.  Now, here comes the fun part.....On to the baby lips.......

I love any lip balm that is going to give my lips great moisture but also a splash of color.  I have been noticing lately that after doing my makeup, I can't just leave my lips bare.  It just makes me look really off center and kinda pale?  Hope that makes sense.. :)  Anyhow, the baby lips products are awesome.  I just happened to have this baby lips flavor in "Grape Vine" in my pocket throughout the day and it was perfect when my lips were feeling a little parched.  I didn't realize at first how these two lip products would work so well together.  I was really just trying to keep my lips moisturized so I wouldn't be rubbing my lips together.  But these two really compliment each other.  The stain was having pretty good staying power today but with the hint of color of the baby lips, I didn't have to retouch the stain today.  It was quite a pleasant surprise.  Now I am certainly not claiming that my lips looked like when I first applied the stain, but it was a quick and easy option for me to keep my lip color throughout the day without looking in the mirror.

Hope you find this useful and that you are having a fun filled weekend :)

  1. I'll definitely have to check this out! I really want to try the Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon in Peony by Mark... Kristen Stewart wore it to the On the Road premiere. Also the lip color she wore to the LA premiere of BD2 was amazing. It's Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet - # 40 La Sensuelle with Laura Mercier Crushed Velvet for the lip pencil. The Chanel is like 40 dollars though. Yikes. BTW do you sign up for a Birtchbox? Fun way to get new beauty products every month. You should check it out. :)

  2. I have to take a look at these lip colors! and I have totally heard of Birchbox....I was subscribed to a different monthly subscription but I cancelled it because it was kinda the same same stuff each month. I've definitely thought about subscribing to birchbox! Do you like your monthly boxes?
