Maybelline Super Stay 10 hour tint gloss

By Emma | April 11 2012 | 14 Comments


Hot on the heels of YSL’s Glossy Stains come these Super Stay 10h Tint Glosses from Maybelline. Both products are stain/gloss hybrids that promise innovative, longlasting colour that feels lightweight and comfortable on the lips.

I am in love with my Glossy Stain and have been raving about it to anyone who will listen – and a few who patently won’t. (Sorry, Mr. Plumber Man, but it really is a very lovely product.) The one thing that prevented me from rushing out and buying up the range is the rather hefty price tag – at €33, that’s a whole outfit from Penneys or a full wine rack, from Aldi!



On the other hand, Maybelline’s offering is a much more palatable €11.49 – that’s just over a third of the price of a Glossy Stain.  Now you do have to consider a much more limited shade choice – just 5 on these shores, as opposed to a whopping 20 in the YSL range. There’s also no denying that the sleek black and gold of the YSL packaging offers a more luxe experience than Maybelline’s white plastic tubes. And I find I get around 4 hours wear from the Super Stays – as opposed to the advertised 10, or the 6 hours wear I get from my Glossy Stain.



But all that said, I’m loving the Maybelline product! I have two shades, Endless Ruby and Forever Coral, which are both lovely: bright, saturated shades that give a gorgeously glossy pout, fading gradually to a more matte stain. I’ve also clocked my eyes on Timeless Plum, which looked to me like a bright, violetty purple. Lasting Pink and Forever Fuchsia round out the range: I’d happily wear all five, but they do look quite similar and it would have been nice to see a few paler shades in the line-up.

Like the Glossy Stains, these are fruitily scented, come with a sponge doefoot applicator and feel pleasant and non-drying on my lips. Mine were a gift from a well-connected friend (thanks Sarah!), but Super Stay 10h Tint Glosses are out this month; has anyone spotted ‘em yet?

    Ah, you pipped me to the post! I ADORE these lads (thanks again Sarah) and they’ve fast become one of my favourite drug-store products. Can’t wait to have a swatch of the full shade range when they come out.

    Ooh I like the look of Endless Ruby! I will check these out and might get one or two, along with more L’Oreal Lip Butters – oy vey!

    I’m just so sceptical towards any longwear lipsticks – they seem to cause my lips – and skin – endless trouble for days afterwards… I’ll probably succumb at a later date but for now I’m holding off since I just bought Ellie Faas creamy lips 101 which cost a fortune!

  • Banjaxed, I love the Ellis Faas stuff! Tell us how you get on with your lippie.

    Emma – this is my first purchase and I like it! It’s not the wonder product I thought it would be though. For some reason I thought it would last longer on the lips than it does, but it feels really nice and glides on. I’m just not sure if it warrants the hefty price tag… I’m quite keen on the lights for the eyes but the price keeps putting me off!

  • Great review Emma, the Endless Ruby looks gorgeous on you too!

  • These look lovely will have a peek at them as my budget doesn’t quite stretch to YSL!

  • Banjaxed, I totally want the lights too, they’ll be my next purchase from the brand! Now just to decide what colour…

  • Actually just picked one up today after seeing them in Boots and they smell delicious! My shade Forever Fuschia! Ba da da da daaaa I’m lovin’ it!

  • Missbeautyblogger snap! I got Forever Fuchsia too, now it seems daft not to get the other two in the range …!

  • Micky Johnson says:

    I would love to endorse the Super Stay 10 lipstick, however, I have found that the ‘staying’ power is nil and that the ‘gloss’…alas…is NOT to be. Perhaps it works best when under or over another lipstick with more ‘staying’ power…! Oh well…at least I bought it on sale and didn’t spend much money!!
