The problem I have with lip colors is that on my lips it tends to bleed very easily. So I am always on the lookout for long staying matte lipsticks. Liquid lipsticks are the last I’ll ever go for, but Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick was very convincing. And talk about the colors!!! They are beautiful! All of them!
Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick comes in a color coordinated tube which gives us an idea of what the ink looks like. The doe-foot has a little bit more pointy tip as compared to regular applicators. So, it makes the application easier and precise.

The color I got for myself is Lover, and I think this color is beautiful and versatile. I use it both in broad daylight and at night outs. Once applied, the lipstick dries off very fast. However, this Superstay liquid lipstick is not as drying as compared to other matte lipsticks I have used before. Its finish is smooth and soft, and it stays like that for a really long time.

The best thing I like about Superstay liquid lipstick is that after 15 minutes of application when the lipstick is entirely dried off, I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything. It is super light in texture and even after heavy meals, the color stays intact.

To see how long lasting it is, I didn’t touch up the whole day, and to my surprise, the lipstick was still intact. There was a little fading on the sides of my lips but rest assured, my lips were still on point. How many lipsticks out there can do this? I think not many, so I am going to the store next week and getting several colors for sure!

PROS

Affordable

Highly pigmented

Very long-lasting

Does not transfer

Does not need touch-ups

Does not peel

CONS

Difficult to remove


Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is very pigmented. I just swipe once on my lips, and the right color just sits perfectly. It is also very comfortable to wear, it does not feel tacky, does not peel off, it does not settle in the fine lines, and though it is matte, it does not feel stretchy. A lot of “does nots”, right?

With all the good points mentioned above, there is one thing which is both a good and a bad point. I like the fact that this lipstick is super long-lasting, that does not transfer at all. But, it also kind of gets annoying when I want to remove it.

Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick can be removed only with an oil-based make-up remover. I have tried washing it off with wet tissues, but it does not work.
Still, now that I own an oil-based make-up remover, I don’t have any trouble with it. This lipstick is on my top 10 favorites list.

PROS

Functional packaging

Very long-lasting

Transfer-proof

Very pigmented

CONS

Requires very precise application

Difficult to remove

Does not dry evenly


I love how conveniently Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is packaged. The low statement quality of it makes me adore it. Other than that, Maybelline is right about how long lasting it is. This lipstick leaves the lips pigmented throughout the day, even after the first layer wears off. I apply this lipstick over a lip balm because my lips are super dry.

However, even if I favor Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick, it can be a tricky one to get it right. And if you make any mistake while applying, good luck with removing it! Ha! I learned it the hard way. Since it is long-lasting, it very hard to remove. So make sure you don’t make any mistakes and make sure it dries off completely before moving your lips because it tends to dry unevenly.

1/5

PROS

Attractive packaging

Mild fragrance

Beautiful range of colors

CONS

Feels sticky

Crumbles off


I purchased this matte liquid lipstick solely after reading all the reviews. It seemed like a very promising lipstick. I bought the shade Escapist which is a very deep burgundy with plum undertones. It is a beautiful color.
I really wanted to like it, but it feels very sticky on my lips. It also crumbles off. I don’t understand why it is not suiting me. It is so unfortunate, but I am disappointed with my buy. My time with Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick ends with this review.
