Awesome Lipstick Hack!

Hi lovelies!

Hope everyone’s had a great long weekend!

I stumbled upon a super awesome lipstick hack this past weekend, and I just had to share it!

I wrote about the long lasting power of the Maybelline SUPERSTAY 24® lipstick before, and talked about how it will literally last through anything. Believe me, I was skeptical too, but there’s just no stopping it!

At this point, I know that Maybelline SUPERSTAY 24® works great on its own, but what I discovered is that it also plays well with others.

I wanted to create the perfect shade to work with my outfit and through playing around with various shades ended up using Maybelline SUPERSTAY 24® Perpetual Plum 055, with a coat of Mistura’s Molten lip pencil on top.

The colour came out great, but moreover, it lasted all day and all night!! I thought for sure at least the top coat would smudge, perhaps leaving the base to peak through. But nope! The combo was perfect the entire time.

Hack Time!

If you want your lipstick to last all night, but don’t want to buy Maybelline SUPERSTAY 24®  in every shade, get 1 neutral shade to act as a base (I highly recommend perpetual plum) and use colours you already have on hand for the perfect colour! The magical Maybelline Superstay formula will act as a fantastic and long lasting base, while allowing you to leverage product you already own.

Let me know if you give this strategy a try!

    I was googling a hack for the Superstay 24 gloss top coat and found your post. I also use perpetual plum and have for a few years now and love it. My gripe is, I run out of the gloss before I do the color and I don’t believe I use it excessively. SO, as a result, I have a dozen of the colors left with no gloss and end up buying new just to get the gloss part. My question to you is, have you had this problem and if so, have you discovered another product that can be used with the 24 without affecting the staying power of the lipstick? I’m spending a fortune and never using up the color! I sent an email to Maybelline but never received a response. I honestly think one should be able to purchase the gloss lip balm separately for this reason and it would be great if Maybelline developed this product. I can’t imagine I’m alone. Thanks for any advice you can give me!

      Hi Debbie! I personally haven’t run into this yet, but I would suggest using a lip balm/lip chap instead of the gloss that comes with the lipstick. It will moisturize your lips and save you money :).
