Look At those Lips

Hello Ladies
As many of you know, I had gone the majority of my life appreciating makeup without ever wearing it. Now that I am dipping my toes deeper into the makeup pond I am really enjoying myself. In recent weeks I have been wearing deep lip colors outside of the house (don't ask..lol) My favorite bright lip of the moment actually comes from Maybelline. The new Super Stay 10 hour stain gloss in the color "Berry Heavenly" has me itching to get my hands on more colors from this collection.

Let's get down to business-

What's so unique about this product? Many of us have used lip stains, some are good others stink but in general even the most beautifully colored stains leave your lips with a matte finish.
Claim #1
This product has revolutionized the way we think of stains because it actually claims that it will give you the stain while leaving a glossy finish.
This claim is 100% true, with just one swipe of this flattened lip wand your lips will have a rich color and a glossy finish.
Notice that the wand looks like a flattened rice grain rather than the usual Qtip like wand that we normally receive.

Claim #2
This product lasts on your lips for 10 hours.
From my experience, whether or not this product lasts for 10 hours (or at least for a reasonably long time) depends on what you are doing. I had a warm slice of pizza and that stain pulled a disappearing act by the time I took my last bite. Also while drinking juice or any beverage, this lip stain went running for the hills. I had to reapply. However, if you are just sitting around doing nothing, or drinking through a straw you will be just fine and your lip stain will last for a good long time (several hours at least). If you are eating and you want your stain to last, you better use a fork and pretend that you are playing the old school game operation ensuring that nothing touches your lips.
Personally, this deliciously berry scented lip gloss/stain is a pleasure to reapply. The fact that it doesn't last 10 hours is not a reason for me to refuse to purchase this product again- I'm smitten.
I don't know if all of the glosses from this line are scented but Berry Heavenly smells good enough to eat, even though the product is tasteless.
I love that this product doesn't dry out my lips at all, it is creamy and not sticky at all.- I love that!!!!


Here is the lip stain/gloss with just a light application

Here is that same color with a heavier coating.
Even with more product on my lips, this gloss does not get heavy.
Price- it varies. You may want to shop around because I have seen this product priced anywhere from $10.95 down to $ 7:50.

Bottom line- Would I repurchase this product? YES!
If you're tried this lip stain what are your thoughts? Which lip stain is your all time favorite?
Thanks for reading.
