now lets get started into the detailed review.

Price – INR 650/- for 5ml 

Brand Claims –

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.

Packaging –

I really liked the packaging of “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick”. they come in beautiful color coded tube with a white cap which is square in shape. the tube is quit long. they also have a shade name and number sticker at the bottom of the tube. the applicator is really good, you can easily achieve a precise application with it. it has a very pointed leaf shaped applicator that picks up a good amount of product in one go. over all the packaging is very nice and sturdy.

Texture and Formula – 

The texture of “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick” is little thick that goes very smoothly on the lips. but i’m not a very big fan of its formula. it has a tacky and sticky formula while applying and if you press your lips together they feel quite sticky and uncomfortable. otherwise, once it dries out it sets in matte finish and doesn’t bother at all. these are 100% smudge- proof and water- proof. because of the thick texture you need to go on light hands. only single layer is enough. otherwise it can feel heavy and more sticky on the lips and won’t perform the way it suppose to .

Shade – Top – PIONEER , Bottom – GLOBE TROTTER

Pigmentation –

The Pigmentation of “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick” is Top – Notch !! these are crazily pigmented and just a single swipe is enough to cover up the entire lips. they are so packed with pigments that even people with darker lips won’t have to build the color up. these sper saturated shades give your lips the full coverage.

Shade – Globe Trotter
Shade – Pioneer

Staying Power –

The “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick” are true to their claim. they are the longest wearing liquid lipstick I’ve ever had. The super long lasting formula stays on your lips over 10 hrs. obviously i didn’t try it for 16hrs. but yes it can stay on your lips as long as you wanna wear it. the lipstick can survive the whole meal without smudging and transferring. it looks intact through out the day and doesn’t settle into fine lines either. it can slightly flake off from the center of your lips if you’ll go overboard with this. thus; suggested apply only single layer of the product without mixing it by pressing your lips together.

Shade- Top – PIONEER, Bottom – GLOBE TROTTER

Shades Available – 

The “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick”has a wide range to choose from. Earlier they have launched only 10 shades,but now they have added around 29 shades from reds to pinks and bolds to nudes and many more. I’ve picked up 2 shades which is PIONEER (RED) and GLOBETROTTER (RUSTY TERRACOTTA). i love both the shades.

My Experience with “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick”

I bought the shade PIONEER and GLOBE TROTTER. I love both the shades so much. PIONEER is a very stunning classic deep red color and GLOBE TROTTER is a very beautiful rusty terracotta orangy brown shade( i dont know how to explain this) which is very unique in my entire lipstick collection. it really brighten ups my whole face. its not too loud not too nude. its a very appropriate shade for this summer season or even for up coming fall as well.

The “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick” are very pigmented and opaque but i really dont like the sticky formula. thats the only issue i have with these lipsticks. the stickiness lasts for few mins (almost for half n hour) until its completely dries off. Other than that,i don’t have any complaints against these “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick” they are super duper long lasting.

i highly suggest to apply only a single coat of these lipsticks for a long lasting and comfortable effect. other wise multiple coats can make your lips too heavy n the lipstick will start flaking off and it can put you in the worst condition. so must keep that in mind. And one more thing about the application…DO NOT press your lips together to mix it. just apply a single coat on each lips separately and allow them to dry.

The  “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick” are not that kind of thin liquid-y lipsticks which have very thin and light weight formula. these lipsticks might sit on the lips a little heavy but they do not bother my lips infact after some time i didn’t even realize that i have some lipstick on my lips because they don’t dry out my lips and make them died at all, in that way they are very comfortable to wear for hours n hours.

The  “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick” claims to last upto 16hrs that i obviously could not test, but these lipsticks can last the whole day ( or maybe night) if not disturbed. They can easily survive little bit of snacking and drinking and they won’t go anywhere, even they can survive a heavy Indian meal as well. after the whole day with eating n drinking; the lipstick worn off a little bit from the inner rim of my lips that too very slightly.

Pros of “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick”

  1. Super duper long lasting
  2. Extremely pigmented
  3. Gives full coverage in just one swipe
  4. Need very little amount to cover up the whole lips
  5. Comfortable on the lips
  6. Doesn’t feel dry
  7. Pointed applicator for precise application
  8. 100% water – proof and transfer-proof
  9. Doesn’t smudge
  10. Huge shade range to choose from

Cons of “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick”

  1. The only con i could find is the Sticky Formula!

Recommendation– Yes !! i would highly recommend these  “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick”. you can definitely give them a try if you are searching for a long longgg lasting liquid lipstick which does not dry out your lips, then go for it… but if you just can’t bear the sticky feeling even for a while then sadly…! its not the one for you.”

So, that was my take on  The  “Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick”. I hope you guys found it helpful and enjoy this post. now i’ll see you very soon in my next post. until then stay happy and beYOUtiful !!
