Superstay Gloss claims to deliver “double-duty beauty” because one end is a sheer liquid lip color and the other is a clear, patent leather–shiny gloss. This product is applied in two steps. You paint on the lip color, let it dry for two minutes, then brush on the thick, clear gloss. This is an option if you’re looking for long-wearing sheer colors and want a super glossy finish; however, it is not preferred to Maybelline’s original Superstay Lipcolor because the Gloss version’s top coat is sticky and doesn’t do a great job of making the liquid lip color increasingly comfortable. Great colors, though, including “your lips, but better” shades. Wear time is definitely longer than a traditional gloss, which is the main reason to consider this product.

Maybelline is one of the best-known and most recognized mass-market makeup lines in the world—it's available in 90 countries. Throughout its long history, which began in 1915 when T. L. Wilson founded the company and named it after his sister, Mabel, and Vaseline (which he combined with coal dust to concoct a mascara for her), the company has prided itself on bringing innovative products to the marketplace. L'Oreal purchased the company in early 1996 and that's when things really started getting much better. Both companies specialize in offering a large selection of lipsticks, nail polishes, and mascaras, and many of their foundations have the same strengths and weaknesses (smooth textures and finishes plus the inclusion of sunscreens that are often without much-needed UVA-protecting ingredients).

The powders, several mascaras, pencils, matte-finish concealers, and Superstay Lipcolor are impressive and inexpensive. Although L'Oreal remains the more sophisticated and refined of the two lines (and now they have credible products, not just sleek ads, to back this assertion), Maybelline's latest urban image is a positive step, as many of their latest launches have been innovative without resorting to "been-there, done-that" gimmicks. Price-wise, Maybelline is the least expensive of the L'Oreal-owned cosmetic lines (which also includes Lancome, Biotherm, Vichy, and Kiehl’s), and smart shoppers will note the similarities among brands that, with conscientious shopping, can really save you money without sacrificing quality or performance.
