WHAT IT IS
SuperStay Matte Ink™ Liquid Lipstick gives you a flawless matte finish in a range of super saturated shades.
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.
HOW TO USE/APPLY
Step 1. Apply liquid lipstick in the center of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth.
Step 2. Glide the liquid lipstick across the entire bottom lip.
105 Explorer: A daring indigo blue, this is definitely one of the bolder shades in the range. The formulation is pretty pigmented but I found the application quite tricky as it's hard to ensure an even application, especially around the edges of the lips.
112 Composer: This is a very dark oxblood red. The formulation is slightly patchy so it's not one I would recommend unless you really love the color.
115 Founder: A deep rosy berry, this shade is a slightly pinker version of "80 Ruler" from the SuperStay Matte Ink Un-Nudes Collection. The formulation is opaque in one swipe and quick-drying.
125 Inspirer: This is a lovely light pink that the Matte Ink range desperately lacked. The formulation is great but the drying time is a tad longer compared to the other shades.
130 Self-Starter: A unique muted smoky peach, this is super creamy and pigmented.
135 Globetrotter: This is a gorgeous burnt orange. The formulation is extremely pigmented and opaque.
The Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is packaged in a sturdy rectangular tube. The body is colored to reflect the shade inside and the tapered doe-foot applicator has a tiny reservoir in the center to help pick up extra product. The overall design feels a little clunky but the applicator is precise and easy to use.
Hands down one of the best matte liquid lipsticks on the market, the SuperStay Matte Ink has a viscous, creamy formulation that spreads easily on the lips. The pigmentation is super strong so one swipe usually provides a fully opaque coverage. The lipstick dries within a few minutes, after which it becomes pretty much bullet-proof. The color will last a full day, even with heavy eating and drinking. Although not drying, the formulation does feel a bit mask-like, which is really the only downside of the lipstick. If you are all about a smudge-proof and transfer-proof liquid lip color, the SuperStay Matte Ink is a must-have! Ten new shades are introduced as a part of the City Edition and I have six of them swatched below. See below for a description of each.
