Hello Gorgeous :)
I’m a fan of red lipsticks :D You should see my love for red someday, I’ll show you my collection of red lippies and liners. I think red flatters my skin tone a lot and looks amazing on me and one day my beau also said that I look too **** in red lips. What! I mean he said I look beautiful in red lips :P My friend Sushmita also knows my love for red lipstick that she now named me Red Heroine ;) haha funny na! And by the way, did I say I’m now getting MAC Ruby Woo, don’t believe your ears but ya it’s so true, my love for red has forced me to get the hottest lipstick in town now. :D I shared the lip swatch pic on Facebook to let my friends guess the shade and none of them could guess this pretty shade so girls this is Non Stop Red from Maybelline Super Stay 14HR Lipsticks. Let’s move on to read my review.

My Take on Maybelline Super Stay 14HR Lipstick:
Packaging: Maybelline Super Stay 14HR Lipstick comes in a transparent outer case and a white cap where the bottom is red in color. The bottom half helps to identify the particular shade as if it’s a brown shade, the bottom half is brown, if it’s red like this non stop red, then the bottom half is red in color and every piece has a white cap with the respective color at the bottom. The packaging is nothing extraordinary or unique, I personally like round shaped outer case of a lipstick, and not oval shaped or circle shaped lipsticks except for MAC :D because that’s unique and classy in itself.
Pigmentation: These lipsticks are amazingly pigmented, just one swipe and they give intense color and with 2-3 more swipes you can get even more intense color depending on how dark you want the color on your lips.
Texture: Texture is more like semi matte. It feels smooth for the first few hours and then it starts to tug and crease from the centre of the lips. You would more probably want to use these lipsticks after exfoliating and moisturizing your lips properly and if you have excessively chapped and dry lips then you will not like the formula at all. For me, matte is what I like in lipsticks and this besides being matte is slightly moisturizing too, not fully matte and gives some sheen.
Staying Power: The color does not go off anywhere for the first two and a half hour after which it starts fading from the centre of the lips (where lips meet) and you can do with it by pressing your lips against each other. The lipstick lasts really long maybe like for the whole day but the problem is that it starts cracking and creasing at the side of the lips and in the centre. You can eat, drink and do whatever you want with your lips without fearing of the color being transferred or fading, it’s one of those lipsticks which does not fade even on drinking or eating though a slight color may get transferred which won’t be much visible even on your cup or on your lips that the lipstick has faded. I tried drinking, eating with it and I didn’t face any such issue of its fading but I could see slight color on my spoon (just at the corner). These lipsticks are even hard to remove with makeup remover, I have to literally wipe it off 2-3 times with my current makeup remover (Maybelline) and then again with cream and then with my face wash, you see the color is so intense.
Non Stop Red is a pinkish red, say red with pink undertones, not exactly red and has slight hint of pink to it. I totally love this shade, it’s a shade to own besides all the reds and maroons. It will look more flattering on fair skin tone and medium to fair skin tone and can wash off dusky skinned beauties. This is not for college or office as it looks too bold and would be great for clubbing, parties and marriage function.
- Amazingly pigmented.
- Yummillicious smell maybe like pastry or some flavored cake.
- Non stop red is a gorgeous red shade with pink undertones.
- This shade perks up my complexion and looks beautiful on me, will look good on fair and medium to fair skin tone.
- Smooth semi matte texture.
- Lasting power is great, lasts for as long as you want them to be but has a tendency to tug and crease after 3-4 hours.
- Gives opaque coverage.
Cons of Maybelline Super Stay 14HR Lipstick:
- Dries and tugs over time, starts fading from the centre of the lips.
- I’m not much fan of the packaging, I like round shaped outer case.
- You need to have properly exfoliated and moisturized lips to wear these lipsticks or they can look very weird.
- This shade will not suit dusky skin tone beauties.
- Not everyone will like the formula but I like it!
- Color sets in to fine lines and creases at the corner of the lips after sometime.
BML Rating: 3.5/5
Do I Recommend Maybelline Super Stay 14HR Lipsticks:
This range is something to try for the great lasting power and opaque coverage they give. There are 20 shades and you can try any of the shades. You may not like these lipsticks if you are not much fan of matte finish lipsticks but these lipsticks are something to try once. I own two shades from this range and I love them.
