Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Review

Aloha guys!

I am always on the hunt for the perfect liquid lipstick. I have a pretty strict criteria and none have got 100% yet. Either they're too drying, they crack or they fade and don't stay 20 minutes let alone hours.

In Superdrug on Saturday these caught my eye, mainly because the packing is perfect. It's simple yet really cute (looks great on Instagram!) There was a massive range of colours considering it's just a high street lipstick. From pinky nudes right through to vampy purples. I kinda wanted to buy them all just for the packing, they look so cute together.


As this was an impulse buy, I didn't think too much about the formula etc. I've used maybelline superstay products before and found them pretty good so I just went with it. In Superdrug I paid £9.99 and got 20% off with Unidays. Bit of a bargain.

The applicator is a heart shaped wand with a sharper end. This proves to be one of the easiest applicators to use for liquid lipstick as you can line your lips perfectly with the point. Love it.


The formula is amazing, I was so so impressed. For a start it smells pretty good, sweet, delicate and creamy it doesn't smell chemically like some tend to. When I applied it, I was late for work and needed to get out the door so it literally went onto completely bare lips, no exfoliating, priming, nothing. Unbelievably it out-performed so many others I have tried.

It maintained its creamy consistency even when dry, it doesn't dry out completely which is great because it doesn't sit in the cracks. It's matte without being chalky, it doesn't roll off and after several coffee's it has lasted like a champ.


My lips actually feel quite moisturised and it looks freshly applied hours later. I got the shade 05 'Loyalist' which was an almost perfect nude match for my lips.


For £9.99 I am hugely impressed with this liquid lipstick and I am recommending it to everyone. Grab it here at Superdrug before they fly off the shelves!!
