Today , I’d be reviewing a beautiful and gorgeous lipstick from the newly released Maybelline New York Super Stay 14 HR lipsticks in the shade ETERNAL ROSE.
Maybelline claims :
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.
Tall claims, eh!! Let’s see how it fares on my parameters….
These lipsticks were released a while back in India and I guess many lipstick lovers like me would not dare to miss a product like this. Although , I’m not really much into LONG LASTING lipsticks, however I did want to try one from this range, and since Shopper’s Stop had a 15 % off on Maybelline eye and lip products , it would hav ebeen a sin to miss this one.
Maybelline has released a total of 16 shades here in India, and I found most of them to be way to stark for a young audience…To me , it actually looked like a mature woman’s collection because of the browns and maroons in the line. Three colors that caught my fancy were Fuchsia Forever (which looked a lot like Girl About Town by MAC , reviewed here), Lasting Chestnut(could have made me look atleast 20 years older ) and Eternal Rose of which I chose Eternal Rose because the color looked pretty unique for my collection.
Eternal Rose is a beautiful bright pink shade with lots of warm tones. For me this one’s going to be an evening wear color for spring mostly, though that’s definitely not to say that this won’t look good during daytime. I’d like it to pair it with either a bronze smokey eye makeup or plum smokey eyes and glowing cheeks.
The one thing that I was not much impressed with is the packaging of the lipstick. Its just so Bleh!!! I mean, okay I can definitely hunt it down my lipstick drawer because it has a lipstick matching bottom, but what’s with the WHITE cap. Maybelline could have done a better job out there. Atleast it could have been a creamy white, the stark white on the cap reminds me of hospital beds and I totally hate that.
Apart from that , the texture of the lipstick is really nice to work with. It is actually a modern matte finish which is definitely not drying like many long staying lipsticks. Although the 14 HR claim is a bit too much, this one easily lasted on me for about 6-7 hrs, and was pretty comfortable to wear. It gives rich, opaque color in just one swipe and does not feather or bleed. One bad thing is that it does settle down in the fine lines of lips and you have to be really careful about this aspect, especially after meals 😛
The quantity is 3.3 g which is lesser than regular Maybellines but since I’ve not finished a lipstick in the longest time now, I wouldn’t really mind that.
I have not seen these being available online yet, but you can buy them from Shopper’s Stop for INR 525
Here’s me wearing “Eternal Rose” during one of these wintery evening outings!!!
Have a look into the range if you like this shade or some other…
