The Maybelline “Super Stay Matte Ink” is packaged in a rectangular tube. The tube’s color is the same as the lipstick’s color and has a matte finishing to reflect the lipstick’s identity. The hand of the brush which is the same as the lid of the tube is white.
This lipstick comes in 10 different shades. While some are nude like the “Loyalist” or “Dreamer”, others are deeper in tone like “Pioneer”, and there are a few darker shades such as “Escapist” and “Believer.” We tested “Lover”, a deep rosewood shade
Just as its name suggests, the lipstick is liquid, and it spread very easily, evenly, and smoothly on the lips. It is a but heavy upon initial application, but as soon as it dries, it blends in with the lips.
The Maybelline “Super Stay Matte Ink” lipstick has a strong vanilla smell which can be overpowering to those with odor sensitivities.
The lipstick is very easy to apply because of its texture and the arrow like application brush it comes with. The brush made it easy to draw the contour of the lips and then fill them. It takes a few seconds for the lipstick to dry and the color to sit and blend with the lips. We found the pigmentation to be high in the lipstick, so there was no need to apply more than one layer. The matte-finish is perfected because the lips look smooth and soft not grainy, which is what tends to happen with matte lipsticks. We were able to wear the “Super Stay Matte Lip Ink” for a full 8-hour work day without needing to be retouched. The lipstick sustained a full meal and a couple coffee breaks without smudging. Although it was not entirely transfer-proof, it was indeed very long-lasting just like the brand advertises it to be. The only struggle we had was with removing it because unlike other matte lipsticks, it blended so much with the lips almost sticking to them that it needed lipstick remover.
The “Super Stay Matte Lip Ink” retails at $9.49/0.17 fl.oz on the official Maybelline website. While the “Matte Lip Ink” is more expensive than the “Ultra Matte Lip” by Colour Pop which sells for $6.50/0.11oz, its effect is much more lasting and looks almost as a natural lip color while the “Ultra Matte Lip” needs retouching. Compared to the “Kylie Lip Kit” which retails at $29, we found the “Matte Lip Ink” to be longer lasting and much easier to apply.
