Maybelline Super Stay 10h tint gloss #410 Forever Coral: review

Maybelline Super Stay 10h tint gloss #410 Forever Coral
The appearance of such a revolutionary lip product as the YSL Vernis a Levres meant that we'd witness the arrival of numerous me-too products which would duplicate the idea better or worse. Maybelline Super Stay !0 h tint gloss is one of such products.

Tint gloss is supposed to combine the lasting power of a tint, the shine of a gloss and the opacity of a lipstick.   So how does Maybelline product perform in these three respects?
I really like the intensity of colour when applied. Not sheer at all. However, this gloss lacks the mirror watery shine of typical glosses. Well, it is shiny but not that much. But I actually like it as well cause it's non-sticky, doesn't turn gooey, my hair doesn't get glued to my lips and smear the gloss all over the face. Unfortunately it fails to perform well as a tint. If you look at the picture below you'll see that it leaves this pretty bright and noticeable stain. The trouble is that it doesn't last very long. One lick and it's gone. Not to mention a drink or a snack! And this is my biggest grudge about this product. It fails to fulfill  the basic promise of  10-hour performance. I'm a good lipstick wearer, I don't touch my lips all the time, smack them or anything and lip products usually wear well on me. With this one I managed to achieve sort of 3-hour wear, no drink, snack or fag. If I ate or drank anything there was no trace of the product left.

COLOUR RANGE: Although the shades have many different names, ranging from pinks to browns all of them except the brown look like different shades of red to me. The one I picked looks much more red than coral to me. I like the shade a lot but the isn't much variety to choose from.

PACKAGING: doesn't appeal to my taste, looks kind of cheap and tacky. It would suit a teenager on a budget, I personally like my cosmetics to look pretty.

APPLICATION: very convenient fluffy leaf-shaped applicator. My favourite kind of gloss applicator. Distributed the product evenly and without effort.

SMELL: smells typically of a lip tint or stain, all of them have a similar sweet, sort of rosy smell

PERFORMANCE: fails to live up to the claim of 10-hour performance, doesn't even get close to that

PRICE: very affordable

VERDICT: a decent low budget product. Just don't expect miracles and don't believe the manufacturer's claims and you won't be disappointed.
