I popped them on my arm at the start of the day and then took a follow up picture with the same camera settings 10 hours later so you could see the wear:
As you can see, they don't really stain. This is on my arm too so bear in mind the lips are used a lot more, eating, drinking, even talking! I find the Glossy Stains from YSL properly stain my lips for 24 hours but these take a few top ups during even the 10 hours it claims. They're also not quite as glossy as the YSL ones, but I do like the finish they give.
Overall i'd say if you're after a stain this isn't really it, but they are a great lip product because of the fact that they're not really a gloss. They're definitely however, a tint. They tint the lips and provide really lovely pay off. I can see lots of girlies loving these due to the fact that they're not a massive stainer and also that they're not horribly glossy - I keep reaching for them due to that fact too, and it's because glosses can often be too sticky, or too much. This gives off great pay off and it will satisfy anyone craving Glossy Stains!
Maybelline 10h Tint Glosses will be on sale in the full five colours (Endless Ruby not featured) from April 2012 for just £6.99.
What do you think of these Maybelline 10h Tint Glosses? Are you thinking of grabbing them instead of Glossy Stains? Will they never compare to Glossy Stains? Do you like the packaging? I LOVE the applicator! Need more lip products with applicators like that...
