A week or two ago, I went to the supermarket to buy a few products for my house. Near the supermarket were a few counters of drugstore brands. One of the brands was Maybelline, and Maybelline is one of my favourite brands ever!
I have always wanted a brown shade of lipstick, but did not think it was worth buying from MAC right now and spending a lot of money. Because of that, I wanted to check out if the drugstore had some brown shades. And they did!
The ‘Maybelline Super Stay 14hr Lipstick’ in the shade ‘Lasting Chestnut 720’ was the perfect brown shade I was looking for. The second I swatched it, I noticed a few things:
- It was a very moisturising lipstick
- It was not patchy
- It was a buildable colour
I have been using this lipstick nonstop for the past week or so! It does a very good lasting result, but while eating, the colour does start to fade in the middle, (it leaves a kind of lip contour, as if you had drawn on with a lip pencil). Nevertheless, the colour can be a brown nude, or a dark nude, since it is buildable.
Finally, the packaging is very convenient. The applicator makes it very easy to apply on the lips since it does have a pointy yet curved shape, acquiring the natural shape of the lips. In addition, the lid needs to be twisted and opened or closed, which makes it so much easier without the lid falling or popping off.
However, if it is not applied properly on the lips, it can leave a crusty feeling in the middle of the lips.
I think this is a beautiful shade from Maybelline, that is really worth checking out and reviewing yourself!
