Maybelline Complaint - New, but not improved
I have been a real fan of the 16 hour lip color by Maybelline. It went on very smoothly. The applicator allowed for a very fine line so that I rarely needed to use a lip pencil. The color often lasted longer than 16 hrs and it tended to wear off or fade pretty evenly. The "new and improved" may be new but it isn't improved. I have found that the new applicator is not as smooth and even as the old one. The color goes on unevenly and tends to feather at the lip line so that a lip pencil is usually needed. The lip conditioner isn't as rich and glossy as the old one. And, the worst problem is when it wears off, it does so very unevenly leaving clumps of color and no color spots all over your lips! It looks ghastly. Note to product development: If it isn't broke, don't fix it!! Oh, and the 'new' colors? They aren't nearly as nice as the 16 hour shades. Very disappointed.
