MaybellineSuperstay Lipstick Cosmetics

I found a great Maybelline lipstick cosmetic at the store. MaybellineSuperstay .
I always like to think of their motto. Maybe she’s born with it, Maybe it’s Maybelline.
I came across this Maybelline lipstick cosmetic, and I love it. It is a double product with a clear side on one end and the other side is the colored lip gloss. I applied the color first and let it dry for about two minutes, and then applied the clear gloss on top.
The gloss gives your lips a nice sheen on top of the color.
The lipstick cosmetic was long lasting, even after eating and drinking, the color still looked good. I was very impressed with the long lasting color. It lasted about 8 hours, even thought the clear gloss had worn off, there was a layer of color on my lips.
The price is reasonable,$7.99,talk about discount cosmetics. This works for me.
Once again Maybelline has produced an outstanding product. I would give it a 4.5 out 5.
I bought it in Cabernet and Plum, it comes in many other great colors. Be aware, the colors are intense, so you may want to go a shade lighter. Check out Maybelline Superstay lipstick cosmetics.

I bought some Cover Girl Lip Gloss,I looked over the reviews,and it seemed that it would be a good product to try. I like a nice lip gloss for the summer. I hate to leave home without a little color on my lips, but when it is hot I like the lightness of gloss.

It was a good price (6.99), but I did not like the way the color went on ,the color was too sheer,and did not stay on very long. The color I bought was firecracker, which looked different on my lips. I would give it between 2.5 and three out of 5. I won’t be buying it again.

I did buy a great lip gloss from Smashbox, I bought the set which was a little higher priced,but well worth it.
Eight mini glosses that infuse lips with just the right amount of soft color and shine. All new shades!Includes: Lip Gloss in Bare, Buff, Naked, Nude, Exposed, Natural, Sunkissed & Pure The texture is nice, very smooth,not sticky, long lasting. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5. I would buy it again.
