Hello all the beauties, Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick Always Plum Review is my thoughts on Lipstick from Maybelline. Another reason I picked this particular shade because it suited me as well as my mum’s skin tone pretty well. So, I could not find any reason in particular not to buy it. On the downside, I have heard that these contain Lead and certain harmful stuff.
Not very long ago, Maybelline launched the 14 hr range which was an instant hit due to no need of touch ups. Office workers loved it…So did I. I had bought a shade in Red from this range and recently got a colour in Plum. In brief, this is a well pigmented, matte lipstick that stays on pretty well, say at least 8 hours if not 14..

My Experience with Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick Always Plum
Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick Always Plum comes in a plastic bullet with a white cap. The cap does not budge and is safe to carry around in a pouch. The bullet is see through In the lower half but the shade is not very evident. You need swatches before buying.
The color of Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick Always Plum is a muted Plum. Usually, Plums are darker and have more concentration of Purple. This one has lesser saturation of purple and has hints of Pink and Gray undertones. It suits most skin tones well apart from very Dusky ones I guess due to hints of Gray. On me, Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick Always Plum appears just as an accentuation of my original lip colour as my lips are slightly pigmented. I guess, on pinker lips, It would show on better.
I like wearing this shade because, as I mentioned it appears pretty natural on me and does not call out for attention. I like flaunting it in office. My mom who is a little bit duskier that me finds Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick Always Plum suitable for her complexion and work profile, too.
Texture wise, Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick Always Plum is a little dry and you need to moisturize and exfoliate your lips well before you put on this colour. After Vaseline, it glides on easily on my lips. Pigmentation is decent with two or three coats, not something I could be a fan of, though. Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick Always Plum stays on well for 7 to 8 hours at a stretch without touch ups. It does survive meals with little bit transferring on cups and spoons. It is matte and dos not smudge. You need a make up remover to clean it properly. Another shade, Maybelline Super Stay 14 hour Infinitely Fuchsia Lipstick is already reviewed.
Overall, Maybelline Superstay 14 hour Lipstick, Always Plum is a good buy if you like Plums. It delivers what it claims of.
