Review: Maybelline SuperStay 14HR MegaWatt lipstick

Maybelline’s latest lippie collection is called MegaWatt, an addition to their long wearing SuperStay line. Much like the regular SuperStay lip colours, it feels nice and light on your lips and promises to stick around for – gasp! – 14 hours (I know, the name’s like suuuch a spoiler). The difference, however, is that pigments are bold and bright making each ‘look at me’ hue a perfect pick for summer.

Of all the colours, I most like Flash of Fuchsia. It’s got a bit of a ‘foil’ effect which makes it a little different and fun. So many shimmery or pearly lipsticks can end up looking dated (yep, I’m talking to you Ms Pearly Red, Pink or, worse yet, maroon… you big old tannies, you….) but not this one. I also think Neon Pink’s going to fly off the shelves as it’s a great dupe for MAC’s Candy Yum Yum.

I haven't applied weird filters or anything - the light disparity's due to different types of weather at different times of the day.

Both shades a good job of staying on until I drank something hot like a cappuccino. As far as feeling comfy goes, yep, that’s true, they are nice and lightweight but do feel the teensiest bit dry after a few hours of wear, but not so much that it would bother me. After all, those are the breaks with long-wearing formulas. If you want something that’s more emollient, it’s just not going to stay put.

See anything you like?

Love, love
