Matte lip colors are so in-vogue these days. All brands are have come up with matte range. I like matte lips more than glossy, so I was really excited to try on these super stay bold matte shades. Maybelline New York always comes up with something worth craving for and that too without making a hole in pockets.
But is Superstay 24hr range worth your money!! Read on to know:
What the brand says:

Why you will love it :

How to apply:
First of all apply the gloss all over the lips and leave on until lips feel completely dry. Now apply the matte topcoat balm which will eliminate the shine and leave the lips with a soft, on-trend, matte finish.
My Views on Maybelline superstay 24hr bold matte:
As you can see in the pictures, it is a dual ended product, with a lip gloss on one side and conditioning balm on other. When I first applied it, I just did what is said in instructions and left it there on lips to dry on. As I also wanted to see how it looks on its own, if I don't apply balm. But it felt so drying and heavy on lips. Then I applied balm over it and as it claims it did seal the colour on place and was just right. I mean the finish and the conditioning of balm nailed it for me. I use the balm on some other drying matte lipsticks too. It doesn't shine or gets heavy. You won't even feel it on lips but it makes your lips little moisturized and that tugging feeling goes away.
Though it will stay on lips for really long time but with little bit sticky feeling which bothers a bit. I am sure you have seen many bloggers rave about these matte lip colors, so am I. But you have too be little careful in applying it on lips as it can look patchy sometimes. Lips should be well hydrated and moisturized before wearing on these mattes.
One needs a good oil based makeup remover to remover this as it really gets stuck to the lips and its not possible to remove it with just any makeup remover.
The colors are true to their name - bold matte and if not, 24 hr stay, they surely stay for 10-12 hrs. But I felt a sticky feeling with these. Other than that, the colours are lovely and the quality is good. The conditioning balm on one end makes these stand out for me. Try them once. Even if for 1%, you won't like them, you will definitely use the balm with your other liquid lippies :)
