When it comes to lipsticks, Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands since it has a huge variety of lipsticks in different colours and formulas. One of the most hyped ones are the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks and I was eyeing on them since quite some time. Since everyone was raving about them so much, I too thought I would give them a shot. I’ll share with you what I feel about them.
I got my hands on these lipsticks a couple of weeks ago and I have been using them ever since.
I love the packaging of these Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks since they come with colour coded packaging. The shade of the tube is exactly what the colour of the lipstick looks like and I am so glad that I can easily figure out what shade would go on my lips. Also, the bottom of the tube consists of the name and number of the shade, so it becomes even more easy to identify the shade.
The lipsticks come with a precise doe foot applicator which makes it much easy to apply on the contours of my lips. I am much happy with the packaging of these lipsticks. They do not feel flimsy at all and look so much classy. they are much sleek and chic and can fit into my purse easily.
Well, the only downside of these lipsticks is that they feel a bit sticky on the lips if not applied correctly. When I tried them for the first time, my lips felt too dry and the lipsticks felt sticky. Later I found out that these need to be applied separately on both the upper and lower lips. They are quite thick and opaque, so one swipe is all I need to cover my entire lips. Also, I learnt that they do not feel sticky if I apply them separately on both the lips without my lips. I just let them dry as it is and I am good to go.
I am so glad that these lipsticks come in 31 different shades and one can easily find the shade they like. From nudes to pinks, reds to browns, maroons to corals, this range has everything! However, I picked up only three shades from the range: lover, ruler and delicate since I wasn’t sure of the formula and how it would turn out on my lips.
Here are the swatches of the three shades that I picked.
From top to bottom: lover, ruler, delicate
Lover is a mauve shade that would suit all skin tones and looks amazing on my lips. It is amongst my favourite shades and I keep reaching out for it frequently.
Ruler is a maroon pink shade that would again suit all skin tones and it looks great on my lips. Being a fan of darker shades, I love this shade as much as I love the shade lover.
Delicate is a light pink shade and would suit people with fair to medium skin tones. It is the perfect pinkish nude for everyday wear.
These lipsticks are extremely matte on the lips and take a bit of time to settle and dry down on my lips. However, they do feel a bit drying if my lips are not well moisturised.
The lipsticks last for good 7 to 8 hours and even sustains meals. However, if I consume oily food, they do tend to fade a little bit from the centre of my lips. Otherwise, they stay for a really long time on my lips and do not transfer much too.
Quantity and Price:
These Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks come in a 5ml tube and cost ₹650. The price is fair enough compared to the quantity and quality these lipsticks come with. Since they stay on my lips for a really long time and do not transfer much, I feel they are worth every penny spent.
My overall thoughts:
I like using these lipsticks a lot and they stay on my lips for a really long time. the only tricky part about these lipsticks is the application. You have to take care that you do not smack your lips and apply them carefully on both your lips. I like how they stay on my lips throughout the day without fading. I would recommend you give these a shot if you are looking for matte liquid lipsticks that would last you throughout the day.
