Maybelline Superstay powergloss lipgloss is a double ended wand with colour on one end and gloss on the other. The idea is that it provides 12 hours of colour shine to keep you looking good all night long. I have to say the promise doesn’t live up to reality. Like most products you’re lucky if you can keep this on for more then a hour especially if you’re drinking all night.
When you apply the coloured end you find that it is really quite sticky and doesn’t feel as smooth as some lip glosses. After application my lips still feel sticky and almost stick together when pressed on top of each other. When I applied the gloss I also noticed that the colour actually comes off on the gloss brush so it does make you think maybe you have to wait a while before applying the other side.
The overall result you get in the end is quite a nice sparkly colour that has a slight glean to it. However I wouldn’t say the gloss really adds much to the effect. This lip gloss is okay for the money (around £5-6) but don’t listen to the hype – it’s rubbish.
I’d give it a 2/5.
- Nice sparkly finish
- Nice range of colours available
- Feels really sticky on your lips
- Colour comes off when applying gloss
- Does not last 12 hours
Maybelline Superstay powergloss is available in all good supermarkets and high street stores.
