Good Afternoon on Friday September 8th,
I hope you are all well as I have had a week away in Paris there was no post last week and on Wednesday I shattered and in the middle of unpacking everything. As it is now Friday I thought I would get back into things with a review of a lip product which is new into the drugstores, which as you can see from the title are the Superstay Matte Ink lip products from Maybelline which I have in the shades 20/Pioneer and 50/Voyager and retail for £10.
These liquid lips offer a wear time of up to 16 hours, and whilst I have only worn mine for a maximum of 12 they do stay put and don’t transfer onto cups or partner’s lips once they have dried down and set. I really like the applicator of this product as the arrow shape with a hole in the center similar to the YSL applicator. This allows for a precise application which doesn’ t end up bleeding or feathering or smearing everywhere during the application and the gorgeous formula gives you a stunning long lasting look.
This liquid lip is unlike anything else I have in my collection at the moment as I would describe it as a stain and liquid lipstick hybrid because it applies very wet and then gets sticky, before finally drying down which takes about 15 minutes to fully dry. While this may seem a long time I often apply it after powdering and then go back and finish my makeup / hair and by the time that is all done this is set. You can apply this stuff in the morning and it will be intact when you wash your face at night and it doesn’t feel dry / feel like it is sucking the life out of our lips and isn’t or cakey or flake when it wears down.
The only thing that I would say about this product is that it is a nightmare to get off with anything other than an oil, having tried several cleansers I found that my Take The Day Off by Clinique did the best job. however, this does mean that you do need to be quick when fixing any mistakes as it can get quite messy and you could end up ruining the rest of your make-up. I really do like these products and would go and check these out in your local drug store but if you are not a fan of the heavier liquid lips then these are probably not for you.
As always I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments if you have tried these out and what you think.
