Maybelline Super Stay 10Hour Tint Gloss in Forever Fuschia!

Hey Dolls!

The other day I was in Boots and decided to take advantage of their 3 for 2 offer and pick up a few bits! So as I was browsing the Maybelline stand, checking out their new BB cream (stay tuned for a review coming up) I came across these Super Stay 10 hour tint glosses. I picked up "Forever Fuschia". I haven't heard a lot about these but I'm sure we will be soon- they're brill! They're also a great dupe for the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture glossy stains. Check them out here.

What are they? They basically apply like a very pigmented gloss, and dry into a lip tint!

Packaging: The packaging certainly isn't the height of brilliance or class but it's not too shabby either. Pretty standard. A plastic tube with shiny writing. I do like how the lids match the colour inside as it makes it easy to differentiate between colours.

Formula: These are not super glossy so if you're not a fan of lipgloss, don't immediately abandon the idea of purchasing this product. It firstly applies as a very pigmented lip gloss and then, after about 10 minutes, absorbs into the lips and dries as a tint.

Scent: This is a factor that doesn't apply to all beauty products but is quite prominent in this case. They smell super fruity! I really like the scent and is something that enticed me to the product. Not to worry if you're not a fan of fruity smells as the scent pretty much fades once applied. 

Pigmentation: The pigmentation of these is amazing. Forever Fuschia is a a gorgeous, vibrant pink. When first applied it seems super dramatic but after you leave it a minute to absorb it's not as crazy pink. If you want a slightly more subtle look, I would recommend rubbing in with your finger and then dabbing with a tissue. Overall I'm very impressed with the pigmentation, it's superb! Unfortunately they are only available in five shades. 

Lasting Power: Even though these claim to last for 10 hours, I don't think they really do. I got about four hours of wear at most. This is still impressive as I find it difficult to get lip products that last past two hours. 

Price/Availability: These retail for €11.49 at Boots.
