Hi everyone! It’s me again. I hope you’re doing just fine. So today I’m going to review one of my favourite matte lipstick brands from drugstores, Maybelline. Maybelline has various lip collections, from bullets to liquid lipsticks. So today I’m proudly presenting to you Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink. I only have 2 shades that I bought a couple months ago which are Amazonian (Un-Nudes Edition) & Globetrotter (City Edition).
SuperStay Matte Ink™ Liquid Lipstick gives you a flawless matte finish in a range of super saturated shades. Ink your lips in up to 16 HR saturated liquid matte. SuperStay Matte Ink™ features a unique arrow applicator for precise application and is available in a range of super saturated shades.

How To Use
APPLY LIQUID LIPSTICK IN THE CENTER OF YOUR UPPER LIP AND FOLLOW THE CONTOURS OF YOUR MOUTH.
GLIDE THE LIQUID LIPSTICK ACROSS THE ENTIRE BOTTOM LIP.
The Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is packaged in a simple rectangular plastic tube. The body is colored to reflect the shade inside and the tapered doe-foot applicator has a tiny reservoir in the center to help pick up extra product. The overall design feels a little clunky but the applicator is very precise and easy to use.
I really love the creamy texture, glides smoothly on my lips. It feels a little sticky at first but after it sets, it will turn to a lightweight film on my lips. It has elastic ink technology that makes the colour able to perfectly cover the whole lips with one swipe. Even though the finishing is matte, but the lightweight texture made me feel so comfortable.
As for flavor and fragrance, I think they’re great, like vanilla cookies with buttercream frosting with a chocolatey taste but both the smell and taste fade very quickly.
Longevity and Performance
Does it really long lasting like what it claim? YES! It does! This is the most long lasting liquid lipstick in my collection. Even after eating greasy food, the color stays on my lips. Maybe I need to touch up a bit at the center of my lips. Just that. Quit impressive huhh?
How about the transfer proof? Is it transferred proof? YES. But need to let the product set for awhile. Just couple of minutes will do.
Amazonian 70 – A burnt sienna nude, orangey brown shade
Globetrotter 135 – Bold peach to orange shade. This is a gorgeous burnt orange
True to it’s promise, this Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink delivered excellent pigmentation and matte finish without leaving my lips parched and cracked. I don’t apply any lip balm before apply this lipstick and I never faced any dry patches. Only need one swipe but need to wait for few minutes to let the product set on lips. After it sets, it feels so lightweight and is transfer proof.
Be careful when applying this lipstick because the color is so pigmented and dries quickly. So if you smudge it, it is so hard to remove and reapply as you also need to touch up you foundation too. This lipstick last longer just like what I expected with a matte liquid lipstick.
To removes it, please use proper make up remover because this liquid lipstick will never go away with only cleanser or water.
Do you have any particular shade that you would like to try?
