REVIEW: Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink™ Liquid Lipstick

I have been looking for a lip stick that could last all day. Let’s admit it, as a student, it can be such a hassle to retouch having such a hectic schedule. We want a smudge proof lip color that stays even after eating. That’s when I discovered Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink™ Liquid Lipstick which promised to give you a flawless matte finish. Yes, it has been hyped before but I never really considered purchasing it because I tried using KJM Lip tint first since I wasn’t really into Liquid Lippies. So anyway, let me just focus on this Maybelline lip product now J

Here is the actual product:

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.

It has an arrow applicator as you can see, which I believe helps in thin layer application. I like that the applicator is stiff, it really helps you to be in control during application.

It has a subtle coconut scent that just disappears after a few seconds.

This liquid Lipstick is so sticky because of its Elastic Ink Technology and has long setting time. Sometimes when I’m in a rush, I will just dab it with tissue to absorb the excess moisture. It doesn’t affect the color’s intensity anyway.

Another thing I noticed is that it is so hard to fix when you mistakenly outlined your lips. Now, I realized why lip liner is matched with liquid lipsticks. Oh how messy it can be if you are not a pro like me. *sighs*
I ended up removing all to start over again. Gosh! It is so hard to remove, it hurts! But that is a good sign that this one is going to last long. I used petroleum jelly - I applied it, wait for few seconds then wipe it with tissue. Now, that’s a lot easier J

After it completely set, I tried if it is transfer proof and it is!!!

I tried wearing it for almost 12 hours and here’s the before(1st pic) and after(2nd pic) photo.
I ate lots of food I normally have including oily ones and all that can possibly smudge it but see the difference? It doesn’t even affect the color as much. Second photo was captured with flas but in person, color pay off is still the same. It is just in the inner portion of the lips where the lip color can be seen to slightly fade. With the above photo, you can already judge the performance of this product. It is pretty amazing! 

I am okay with the scent, the sticky feeling during setting and all the other features of this product but the only thing I want Maybelline to add was a wider range of shades. As of the moment, these are the just the shades available here in the Philippines:

 I only bought the shade VOYAGER. I soooo love it but it is so bold - I think I can only use it when hanging out with my friends and family but not at school *sighs* I should've bought a lighter shade but whatever, I already bought this one I don't wanna regret anymore, soooo I came up with a solution:
upper left: the color shde I came up with
upper right: captured without flash
lower left: captured with flash
lower right: captured after almost 2 hours of wear
#HACK101: I tried mixing it with foundation to make its shade lighter and wearable then I came up with this. I just mixed equal parts of it. The only downside is that it doesn’t last longer than it does without the foundation. As of the moment what I'm doing was to apply the liquid lipstick and after it set, I will dab a small amount of concealer on top of it. This one, lasts longer than the first mentioned method :D

Final verdict? APPROVE!!!!! I like the longevity of this one. It is also non-drying though it has a matte finish and that is a huge plus!!! We all know that Matte finish has the tendency to dry out our lips but not with this one and I guess its Elastic Ink Technology helps out with that. Even if it is pricey for a typical student like me( I bought mine for 299Php), I will still consider buying it because it is definitely worth it!!!


Update!! I found a more wearable shade. Perfect for everyday look 😉
