Gloss or Stain? You decide on Maybelline’s Super Stay 10hr Stain Gloss

Stains remind me of wooden furniture. Gloss reminds me of high shine nail top coats. When you put them together now you have the Maybelline Super Stay 10 hour Stain Gloss. It’s an interesting product that as the name implies gives you a longer wear from the stain but yet the shine from the gloss. 

Product Packaging: The Stain gloss comes in a white tube with the cover being more or less representative of the colour of the stain gloss. If you are more of a lipstick person then give the Super stay 14 hour lipsticks a try.
The applicator is in the shape of an oval and there is a small hole in the middle of it. It is soft and fluffy and pretty flexible. Even though I have small lips I still find it pretty easy to work with. 

Product Colours: These stain glosses come in ten shades for your every colour desire. For me that colour was Pleasing Plum. Ah yes, I was in the mood to delve into the world of purple lips! Little did I realise the shade Luxurious Lilac would have been a better choice but I digress.
What is interesting about this product is that the colour of Pleasing plum appeared more purple when wet and once dry it changes to a deep plum colour. Either way the colour is really pigmented and reminded me of a liquid lipstick. 

On top: Dry colour; On Bottom: Wet swatch
Product Performance: The stain gloss glides onto the lips easily. I did note a slight sensation when applied onto the lips; not exactly tingly but not exactly burning either. Like I mentioned before the product appears rather glossy on initial application but then dries down and the stain part of it takes over.
As for the ten hour part, I did try the product a few times and had different wear times but none of them lasting 10 hours. The first time I tried it I applied the product, left it on for 30 minutes and then had a drink and it was almost all gone by then. Another time I tried it on and ate a meal almost immediately afterwards and the stain was still visible present on the lips but most of the actual colour of the product was gone. In all I did get about 2-3 hours wear time on my somewhat chappy lips. 

Product Availability & Price: For you Trinbagonians, check you local SuperPharm for these at a cost of about $61.95.

And just in case you’re wondering what else I was wearing; the L’Oreal 24hour Infallible eyeshadows in Bronzed Taupe and Midnight Blue completed the look. 

Happy Stain Glossing!

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
