When I started using this, I applied the lip-gloss then immediately followed with the lip balm, and found it separated and did not last long on the lips and was disappointed on the hype of this 24 hour long wearing.
HOWEVER after having a further look on how to use this - the trick is once the lip-gloss is applied, it is important to leave it to dry for 2 MINUTES, this allows the colour to set onto your lips creating a beautiful base. Once set then apply the conditioning balm to seal in softness, if you feel you need a little touch up throughout the day all you need is reapply the balm and that's it!
I chose a nude/pinky tone, as its my go to colour and use it all year round. The colour itself is gorgeous and is very rich in consistency and high-pigmented, something I don't always see in a lip-gloss. I found this lasted pretty much the whole day without needing to reapply the colour which was perfect especially for when your out and about (and if you don't have a mirror handy!). You can just touch up and go!
What do you think of this range from Maybelline?
