I guess the name spoke for itself. Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink lasted me through the day with zero touchups. I was sceptical of its claim at first but after wearing it out for a day, I was totally convinced.
Foundation or blusher touchups are done pretty infrequently throughout the day. However, we do reapply our lipsticks a lot after all the talking and eating throughout the day and it can be a pretty annoying business to keep up. Long-lasting lipsticks are total godsend products but over the years, I’m sure you have discovered that many lip products that claimed to be long-lasting didn’t stay on longer than one meal.
Matte lips continues to take the centre stage in 2018 and I was really happy looking at the pretty and versatile colours from the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink when I received them. Since it claims to be long-lasting, I decided to put it to test. Although the products are sponsored, the review is as honest as it can be.
How long did the lip colour last?
The whole day! No joke!
Did it survive the meals?
It did, seriously. I wore 3 different colours for 3 different days and except for the dark colour Voyager which I had to reapply on the centre part of my lower inner lips after my Mala Steamboat lunch, the others stayed on throughout breakfast, lunch and dinner. To be fair, I have to mention that I kept using a tissue paper to dab my lips because of all the chilli oil in my food, though.
Is it drying?
Matte lip inks are famous for being drying on the lips but Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink was nothing like that. In fact, my lips felt sticky throughout the day and lips are kept hydrated.
How is the applicator design like?
It comes with an oval-shaped sponge applicator and bonus points are given for it pointy tip that helps to create a defined line and reach the corners of our mouth.
Is removal difficult?
I used my makeup wipes (for waterproof makeup) and it came off pretty easily.
Do they smell like chemicals?
Definitely not. They smell like caramel, how yummy.
My favourite shade?
I forgot to take a photo but I really love Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink in Lover. If I can choose another one, definitely Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink in Voyager too!
