Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is one of the best selling liquid lipstick from Maybelline. It is available in 40 different shades and retails for $9.49. This liquid Lipstick claims to be a matte formula that lasts up to 16 hour.
The shade I’m going to test is called ‘Amazonian’. It is a brownish terracotta nude. The shade Amazonian from Maybelline is also said to be a dupe of Huda Beauty liquid matte Lipstick in the shade ‘Trendsetter’. The Huda beauty liquid lipstick retails for $20 whereas the Maybelline one is half the price. The lipstick comes in a solid color bottle and matches with the color of product. It has a reservoir tip applicator which I absolutely love. The divot in the middle of the applicator helps to hold the product so that you won’t have to dip in the bottle again and again. Also the pointed tip helps in the precise application. The lipstick has quite thick consistency and has rich velvety scent of chocolate. The application is easy and pigmented. It does feel a bit sticky even after it dries out but do not transfer at all.
Maybelline Matte Liquid lipstick is very true to its claims on the website. It is very long lasting and will lasts 10 to 12 hours very evenly. This liquid lipstick lasts through eating and drinking and is 100% transfer proof. You might however, notice that it settles in the inner lip area as the wear time prolongs. The finish is velvety matte and not completely matte that is why, it feels very rich on the lips and does not feel dry.
One thing that I dislike about this lipstick is, It is not light weight. If you’re wearing this then you will feel like you’re wearing a thick lipstick. It feels heavy on the lips and could be uncomfortable for some. Another thing that I am not quite fond of is the removal. You’ll need an oil based cleanser to take this off. I used coconut oil on the lips and wiped with a tissue. So the removal can be a hassle for some.
I absolutely love the color and will be using it in the future but, I won’t be repurchasing this or any other color of this lipstick because of the texture. I prefer something that is light weight and comfortable on my lips. Even if the lipstick is not long lasting I feel like it should be light weight as I don’t mind reapplying lipstick in the day. But if you don’t want to be bothered once you applied your lipstick then this is the thing for you if you can get past the texture.
