So this lipstick is up to good these days, with the entire beauty blogosphere raining with rave reviews on it! With around sixteen super staying shades to choose from, do make sure that you catch hold of atleast one of these.
Check out Maybelline New York’s Long Lasting Lipstick here:
The Shade: A deep maroonish warm red, crimson in ideal sense 🙂 I guess the recently launched MAC lipstick “Deeply Adored” could come quite close to it.
The Aroma: Fruity smell, I love it!
The Texture: Smooth and easy to apply, doesn’t tug the lips, which some matte finish lipsticks are prone to.
The lasting: Lasted on me for whole day, that it eight hours complete with a meal in between. So, yes it does last 🙂
The Pigmentation: Insane ! Even when applied lightly with a lip brush, gives enough coverage and intensity.
My Experience: A truly long lasting lipstick, but yes it doesn’t last upto fourteen hours as claimed 🙂 . Frankly, I do not expect my lipsticks to last that long . The texture is smooth and glides on to cover the lips, and one swipe is more than enough. Also, I like the mild fruity aroma it has, though it doesn’t last long after application.
The color is so so beautiful, I love reds , and this is a most wanted addition to my collection 🙂 . It would be a ideal shade for bridal wear as well as for the guests to a wedding :). So, brides do take care to check this out, you might end up wearing it on your D-day. Also, make sure that it is applied to well prepared and exfoliated lips. This rule applies to all red lipsticks .
Now, coming to the aspects which I did not like about this is, that it feels sticky on the lips, when I press my lips they tend to stick together. When applied with a lip brush on well prepared lips, the stickiness can be reduced to a great extent, though not completely. This might be a botheration for some beauties. Also, might dry out dry lips, if not applied on top of a lip balm. Even though, I do not have dry chapped lips, it tends to make my lips feel dry.
- Insanely pigmented

- Gives a nice sheen to lips, unlike some matte lipsticks.
- Sticky, can be reduced with the use of lip brush.
- Might be drying, can be dealt with a lip balm.

- The packaging could have been better, somehow the stark white cover is not appealing.
A Party look created with this lipstick:)
Price: INR 525
Summary: A shade, that is a must have for the color. Very versatile color, ideal for brides to be and for wear to parties and weddings. Lasts upto eight hours! The cons are that it makes the lips feel sticky and dry, which can be combated to some extent with the usage of a lip brush and lip balm.
Product Score: 4/5, points taken for the stickyness factor.
Product sent by Company, but the review as always is honest.
