I love red lipstick, especially when going out in the evening. But the thing that has always bothered me is the longevity of lipsticks, especially after food and drinks. And the more prominent the color, the more visible it is when it actually fades away. On my hunt for a long-lasting lipstick I have really tested many different ones. I also found some inks and tints that had a really good stain and were comparably long-lasting. But this really exceeded my expectations: the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink!
Maybelline is a world widely known brand with the motto “Hot Trend From New York Made Easy!”. They create easy-to-use products with latest technologies used in the field of make-up. Since matte lipsticks have been a huge trend in the last time and now Maybelline created these new Maybelline Super Stay Matte Inks, which promise to last for 16 hours.
A total of 9 different colors are available and I had the chance to try one of them: #20 called “Pioneer”.
This vibrant red shade of liquid lipstick comes with a sponge applicator, as usual for lip glosses and inks. The tip of the sponge is pointed and makes the application easy.
As you can see from the swatch below the color is very pigmented, even with one stroke. It might be too bright and vibrant for people preferring a nude look, but if you like a good and vibrant red this shade is perfect for you. Unfortunately, I don’t have the picture of the lipstick on my lips for you here atm, because I took it with me on vacation and I haven’t unpacked everything yet :D The finish of the lipstick once it has dried is a matte one, as it says in the name already. The best part about this lip ink is that it lasts a very long time! It even lasted during a four-course dinner including drinks!!! I was so amazed when I got back to my room and looked inside the mirror. But, as you can imagine, it is also very hard to remove it fully. I didn’t have any cleansing oil with me (which might have made it easier), so even after using cleansing tissues and cleansing water, and having a shower my lips had a light red stain on them. AMAZING!
If you ask me whether I’m convinced about the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink I can only say: YES! It really keeps what it says and lasted me for a whole day including food and drinking. Of course it also depends on the color, because this one is very pigmented and vibrant and it will stain your lips for a longer time, then a brighter color. If you are looking for a matte and red colored lipstick that will last you for a long time I can really recommend you to try these lipsticks from Maybelline. Nevertheless, I want to point out that this shade does not like the color in the promotional pictures on the website (at least not for my screen adjustments), so be sure to check for swatches online before you decide for a shade…or go to the store. They retail for around 9 € in drugstore or Amazon.
