Maybelline SuperStay 24 Lip Color Review

**I received Maybelline SuperStay 24 Longwear Lip color for free, but all opinions are my own**

I’ve never been that big into makeup. Most of the time I don’t wear anything besides some lip balm but, as I get older, I am starting to notice that a little makeup can really wake up my tired mommy face.

I received the Cozy VoxBox from Influenster and one of the items to review was Maybelline SuperStay 24 Lip Color in Keep Up the Flame.

For someone who doesn’t usually wear makeup, this looked VERY red but, I wanted to give this lip color a fair chance so I went ahead and tried it out.

To apply the lip color, I first exfoliated my lips with a wash cloth to remove any dry skin. Next, I made sure my lips were clean and dry then added the liquid color. After waiting two minutes for the color to dry, I then applied the conditioning balm.

The red color was not nearly as intense as I thought it would be when I first saw it in the tube which was a good thing for me. I think this red would work well with a lot of different skin tones.

I applied the Maybelline SuperStay 24 Lip Color at 11am and went through the rest of my day as normal. Unlike normal lipstick that I am constantly aware of having on and worried about getting on my teeth, for the most part, I forgot I was even wearing this lip color.

Throughout the day, to make sure it was as long lasting as stated, I did check to make sure the lip color still looked good. It ended up looking pretty perfect until the end of the day are 6pm when I had dinner. I was so comfortable wearing the Maybelline SuperStay 24 Lip Color that I forgot I had it on a wiped my mouth a bit too roughly with a napkin at the end of my meal resulting in a big chunck of the lip color being removed.

Since I had already had the lip color on for 7 hours, I don’t considered this any sort of deal breaker. I have worn Maybelline SuperStay 24 Lip Color several more times since this first test and it has held up so well. A few tips I would give for getting the most out of the long lasting color would be:

  1. Exfoliate Lip First
  2. Reapply Balm Often
  3. Don’t Wipe Lips Too Aggressively

I really liked the Maybelline SuperStay 24 Lip Color and definitely plan on purchasing it in a few more colors. Want to try it out too? Below are links to a few places where you can purchase.
