For me, this summer is quickly becoming the season of the killer lip. Between these and a few other really fantastic launches (which you’ll be seeing in the coming weeks), I’ve been having a hell of a good time playing with new formulas & shades. Today though, we’ll be talking about one of my new faves – Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick ($11.99 CAD).

Maybelline is definitely upping their game by joining in on the liquid lipstick trend, and I’m so happy they did. I’m a big fan of this type of lipstick and am really happy to see a great quality drugstore version, which makes picking up a few different shades a lot more accessible than some of the other versions I love.

I want to kick this review off by talking about the staying power of the Superstay Matte Inks. This was one thing that the brand really stressed when they launched the product, noting that once it’s on it stays on – my kinda lipstick. I tend to throw it on before I head out the door for the day and I’m usually so busy on the go that I don’t pay attention to reapplication, so this fits for me. I’ll find that sometimes I even have to wash it off at the end of the day because my lips are still a little stained. I’ve been wearing these since the launch a few weeks ago (where you might have seen we tested them out during a Soulcycle class that nearly killed me) and I’m honestly really impressed with the wear time once they set.

They’ve lasted through work days, wine tastings, lunches, etc. and usually without the need for a touch up. One thing I will stress though is that given the long lasting nature you will probably want to be careful with application; as I mentioned, once they’re on, they’re on so fixing up mistakes can be a little tricky. The pointed tip of the applicator definitely makes precision a bit easier though. I suggest starting off by lining the lips using this before filling in with the flat side to avoid making mistakes and having to attempt cleanup.

Moving on to the formula, this is where I hit a bit of a snag that prevents me from giving these 5 full golden stars. These definitely feel a little different from other liquid lipsticks you’ve probably tried, and upon application, they feel a bit sticky. I’m not a big fan of a tacky feel, so if you can get past the initial feel and give them time to set (which doesn’t take long) I suggest giving these a try. The formula is nicely creamy, which means that even though the finish is matte the lips are left feeling soft. Try not to apply too much to avoid any “crumbling” and give it a couple of minutes to set once you’ve applied.

Currently, Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink is available in 10 shades, swatches of which can be seen above (a few minutes after application once set): Loyalist, Dreamer, Lover, Pioneer, Heroine, Romantic, Creator, Believer, Escapist, and Voyager. The colours are bold and extremely pigmented, which helps the with the long lasting look. Lover and Pioneer have been in heavy rotation for me, and I feel like Believer will be added in very soon.

    OMG how pretty! I love the loyalty, lover and voyager! I would wear these everyday!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    The shades look great. I know you said these felt creamy and your lips felt soft, but I have such dry lips, I can’t really do liquid matte lippies. If I wear lip balm, I can wear the liquid mattes from Jesse’s Girl but they’re the only ones that don’t dry out my lips

  • Nicole Flint

    I love these shades! I received one from Influenster and I have been wearing it everyday! I’m definitely going to look in to the other shades.

  • I love the shades! I have actually just bought a maybelline matte liquid lipstick in a purple shade but I didn’t really fully tested it yet. Due to the bold color I’m afraid it will wear off in the middle of the day.

  • Ana Ojha

    Love those shades! They give a perfect summer vibe!

  • Chi Chi Uguru

    These colors are so cool. I love them. I used to prefer glossy over matte. But now I am thinking…

  • Nandyz Soulshine

    I am not a big fan of makeup touch-ups throughout the day so this longstay version seems a good fit. I like the Dreamer, Lover and Romantic shades most.

  • those shades are so pretty and look perfect for summer xx

  • Alison Rost

    I’m a huge fan of liquid lipsticks, and didn’t realize Maybelline was making them too. The next time I’m wandering around in Target, I’ll have to check them out. I especially love all of the pink shades. x

  • Jia Shin Lee

    Loyalist and voyager will bet my favorite!

  • Anela Hrnic

    Seriously, I’m only using matte lipsticks. They are just the best and usually I don’t have to put it on a thousand times. Love all of the colors of the maybelline superstay collection. I’m probably getting “Loyalist” for myself *-*

  • Lisa

    I love ALL of these colors. And that’s cuz I am picky about the colors I like!

  • Candy Rachelle

    They are all beautiful colors but Lover and Believer are my favorites! I’m DEF gonna go looking for these because mattes are my favorites!

  • Abigail Reece

    I love maybelline, so long lasting which is every girls dream!

  • Amy

    Some of these colors look gorgeous and I’d love to give a few of them a try! I always need diff colors for summer vs. winter because my skin tone changes during those months.

  • Tavana Darris

    On another website I was telling that I’m new to the makeup world. I think I should of added that I would need something that I don’t have to reapply. I might become discourage with makeup again.

  • These are such pretty shades! I always seem to gravitate to the same deep plum colors but these pretty pinks make me want to try something new!

  • sauumye
