Maybelline SuperStay Matte ink review and swatches
Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink is Maybelline’s relatively new rage of liquid lipsticks. They come in a rectangular tube of 5 ml and retail for about $9.49 although you can get them for much cheaper here. As of March 2021, the collection boasts over 40 shades! This blog post will go over the claims of this liquid lipstick, my thoughts on it after trying it out myself, and, lastly, swatches of the shades I purchased.
- Lasts up to 16 hours
- Intense and pigmented shades
- Matte finish
The Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink lipsticks have an arrowhead application that allows you to precisely line your pout. Primor, a European drugstore, had a 3 for 2 promotion going on so I was able to get and try out 6 different gorgeous shades. Here are my thoughts.
SuperStay Matte Ink OpinioN
- Lightweight and comfortable! You will forget you have a lippie on
- No need to worry about getting your mask dirty, these liquid lipsticks WILL NOT BUDGE!
- Go all day without re-applying! They really do last ALL day!
- Very pigmented
- Slightly drying so make sure to properly moisturize
- No room for error! These lipsticks dry QUICK
This was somewhat of a blind purchase and from the 6 shades that I got, 3 are from the Coffee Edition and one from the regular collection. Also, I got 3 shades from the new Spiced Edition that I swatched separately. Here are the swatches of 4 of them. Please refer to the dedicated Spiced Edition blog post to watch the swatch video 🙂
These liquid lipsticks are easy to apply. One dip was enough to cover most of my lips but I definitely had to dip the application a couple more times to properly cover my upper lip.
Pro Tip: Apply the Superstay Matte Ink on hydrated lips to help with dryness and to later remove it with ease with the help of a makeup wipe. This is my favorite lip moisturizer.
