Yes, they are fabulous.

The maybelline (can't remember if it's called 8 hr or 12 hr or something like that). Just like a normal lipstick but I never touch up all day. Fabulous

the maybelline 14 hr stuff doesnt budge. I haven't found a colour I love though in that brand.

I think the colours are a bit limited in the Max Factor range, although it's better than it was initially. I suspect that certain pigments don't work as well in the medium.

I have two issues with the really long lasting lipsticks. 1. As Fab already mentioned, the colours are usually quite limited and 2. I find them really really drying. Not good on my super chapped lips, which btw, NOTHING seems to help with!

But hey, OP if you're happy with what you've found, great!

Inspired by this thread I went and bought a new one. Am wearing it now. It's bugging me. Feels dry and flakey.

To keep my lips moisturiised, when using this sort of lipstick, I bought myself a huge pot of Shea butter from Amphora aromatics:

I mix a bit of lavender oil into a small quantity and voila some extremely good lip balm. Far better for my lips than hugely expensive ones from Aveda and Neals Yard. That huge pot I linked to is twice the size of the one I bought, and I have only used a very small quantity.

The Maybelline Superstay 10 hour tint gloss is pretty good - you do have to touch it up once a day or so but it stays on really well, I have to take it off with oil-based makeup remover, it won't budge with normal make up remover.

Bear, doesn't it slip off if you're using oily balm underneath?
