Maybelline Super Stay 10HR Stain Gloss - Luxurious Lilac

I've really been loving purple lips lately, and I have quite a few vampy purple shades in my collection. Lately I've been trying out Maybelline's Super Stay 10HR Stain Gloss in the shade Luxurious Lilac*, so let's see how I've been liking it!


I actually quite like the packaging of this lip glosses! They aren't as chic as YSL's Glossy Stains, but I still think they're pretty cute. These Super Stay 10HR Stain Glosses have a flattened doe foot applicator, similar to YSL's. The applicator actually has a hole in the middle, where product collects. I've never seen an applicator like this before, but I really like it! The wand is quite long, so that makes application a bit trickier. This formula applies very wet and slightly cold, like most stain-glosses.


Luxurious Lilac is a very vampy, bold purple shade. This isn't one that I would wear on a daily basis, but it is fun for a night out. I think that this shade would look beautiful on anyone with a darker skin tone. I like to apply this by putting on a thin layer first, and letting it dry. Then I add a second layer to even out and deepen the colour. This product is very comfortable to wear, and I don't feel the need to add a gloss or balm over top. These stain-glosses really do last all day on my lips, although the glossiness does wear off around the 5 hour mark. However, the stain lasts pretty much until I use Bioderma on my lips to remove it at night. 


I'm really wanting to try out a few other shades from this line, since I do think that they are fairly comparable to YSL's Glossy Stains, at a drugstore price. I have my eyes on the shades Refreshing Red, Mauve Dream, and Cool Coral! Have you tried these Stain Glosses before?
