I swore that I will buy less makeup this 2018 but the internet made me buy all these. LOL!
The Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks were introduced last year and I have seen them on YouTube. I really want to buy from an online seller but resisted because the shades were limited. I already forgot about them and moved on but Maybelline brought them here and because I frequent the mall, the force was so intense that I couldn’t help it. Hahaha!
Don’t worry, I normally would give the other shades to my family or friends who want them so that they won’t be put to waste. Makeup can be very expensive but the joy it brings to me is immeasurable. (char!) (*Maybelline, please sponsor me!*)
WHAT IT IS
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
Step 1. Apply liquid lipstick in the center of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth.
Step 2. Glide the liquid lipstick across the entire bottom lip.
This comes in a twist up tube with a doe-foot applicator. It feels like an expensive makeup. I love the colorful tube. The shades look like the color of the packaging so it is easier to pick among the shades.
Each tube costs 299 pesos with 5.0 ml of product.
There are 10 shades (currently). Below are the swatches!
Loyalist is surprisingly a nice nude shade even for my medium skin tone and I feel like I can still use this even if it seems too light. This suits pale or fair skin tones best.
DREAMER (pastel pink)
Dreamer is my least favorite because it doesn’t flatter my skin tone well. However, this shade can be mixed with darker shades or can be used if I want gradient lips.
LOVER (dusty rose)
Lover is the most wearable and the best everyday shade. It looks purple on others but on me, the pink tone is more prominent. I love this shade and it’s the one I can recommend to try first.
PIONEER (deep true red)
Pioneer is super gorgeous!!! I think that this shade suits all skin tones. It is very flattering and looks so classy. Definitely, one of the best shades to try!
Heroine is also one of the best shades to try! It looks orange at first but when it sets, it kinda turns into orangey-pink on my lips. Super gorgeous shade if you love bright lipsticks!
ROMANTIC (hot pink)
Romantic is so pretty too! It is really bright on the lips but still very flattering on all skin tones. This is a great summer lipstick shade.
CREATOR (bright violet)
Creator is not for the faint of heart. So pretty!!! The violet shade though makes the teeth look yellow so just be aware of that.
Believer is one of my favorite shades too. Though it is dark, I think that I can still wear it in the office or during the daytime.
Voyager is stunning! This shade is the most wearable out of all the three darkest shades. It surely complements all skin tones especially medium to dark skin tones.
ESCAPIST (dark plum)
Escapist is the darkest shade. It is a bit patchy but I really don’t mind. It can still be a wearable shade if applied lightly or as a gradient lip. I can also mix the lighter shade with this to make it look more wearable.
It has a sweet scent that is not too overpowering. It goes away once set. It does not bother me at all.
It is a thick and creamy liquid lipstick. It feels tacky for a few minutes but once it is completely set, the tacky feeling is bearable. The trick is to apply little product so that it will completely dry. One tip by Maybelline is to lightly dab the lips on a tissue to remove any excess product.
These are my top five shades!
Worth the money?
YES. For 299 pesos each, these liquid lipsticks are worth it. The super stay claim is true because they stay throughout the day and even resist oily food. They feel comfortable on the lips, non-drying, and the tacky feeling is bearable. It does not dry down to a powdery matte finish which I totally dig more.
