My Views On Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipstick Continuous Cranberry


The Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipsticks come in a bullet kinda packaging. Bottom half of the bullet has a transparent outer layer and is color coded in the inside.

The top half is the cap of the lipstick in white in color. The lipstick bullet comes in a silver casing. The packaging is sturdy and wonderful. Perfect to carry in your purse or handbag ;)
It has a yummy sweet fragrance which isn't bothersome.

Shade Description

Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipstick in Continuous Cranberry is a nice cranberry red shade. Its a beautiful red lipstick with a little deep tone - can be worn anytime! :) It isn't too bright and doesn't have any shimmers in it. It dries to a semi-matte finish which looks amazing.

Texture & Coverage

The Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipsticks have a thick and nice texture. The lipstick spreads well and is easy to apply. The superstay lipsticks have a semi-matte finish and they set to a matte finish after application.
Just one swipe is enough to get a decent coverage and two swipes gives you perfect coverage :)
Although the lipsticks are easy to apply and blend still they tend to settle in fine lines on the lips so it has to be applied with caution.

Make sure not to apply more than 3 layers as it starts caking and appears layered!
Transfers a little to your favo coffee mug - blot well for making it kiss-proof ;) Also these lipsticks tend to dry out your lips after a few hours of application.


The Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipsticks take a minute to set on the lips and once set lasts long enough!
It lasts for good 8 hours with mild snacking but if you have meals in between the lipstick would fade away with a nice tint.
After 5 hours it starts fading a little and leaves a nice tint behind which doesn't go off until wiped with a tissue.
The lipstick is waterproof and doesn't come off with just water! However it can be removed easily with your regular makeup remover or wet wipes.
