Maybe she's born with it …

… Maybe she’s swatched it in the shop.

I was excited to see these new lip products today from my Boots store on special introductory offer: Meet the new Maybelline New York Superstay 24hr Lipcolor.

They say:


”Stretches your limits of longwear. No crumbling, no fading, no transferring, no drying, no smudging, Maybelline New York's longest wear. Flex formula keeps Maybelline New York Superstay 24hr Lipcolor gorgeous for up to 24 hours.
Why you'll love Maybelline New York Superstay 24hr Lipcolor:
- Micro-Flex formula glides on and looks gorgeous all day
- No crumbling, no caking, no fading, no feathering, no transferring
- 2-step lip colour in one pack.
For best results:
Apply the liquid color to your clean, bare lips. Allow a full two minutes to dry, then apply ultra-conditioning balm to seal in softness. Reapply balm as needed. Remove with an oil-based makeup remover"


Now this is where it all gets a bit complicated.
The official american website boasts to offer 30 shades in the range, the official british website holds 18 shades,  the boots website holds 18 shades, and my little poxy boots offers 8 shades. Here are my 3 favourite:

Rose dust is gorgeouuuuus! Why do we get only 18 shades when 30 have been released, huh?

These aren't new are they? I have a couple of these...

Oh no wait, I just looked and they are 18 hour. So the only difference is that these are apparently 24... haha

Ooh I like the look of Rose Dus.

Rose Dust is so, so pretty! I have the 12-hour Power Gloss version of this in Pink Icing and I really like it. I might think twice before buying this though, because I'm more into glossiness than color.

Lovely colours. Might look into them

I hate it when we get a rubbish range of shades. Stupid.
