Maybelline finally joined us again in the lip cream bandwagon! Don’t get me wrong i love their affordable yet good quality regular matte lipsticks but there’s something about the trendy lip cream with wand applicator that makes the lipstick game more exciting and playful.
Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Creams compared to their lipsticks are more pigmented, opaque, and particularly long lasting. That’s probably why they called it “Ink”. These cupcake scented babies lasted on my lips the entire day! They don’t budge. No retouching needed unless I eat a super oily food. It is a little bit sticky on the lips but I’m glad that it doesn’t dry my lips at all, especially since my lips tend to chap very often.
Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Cream Swatches : Dreamer, Loyalist, Lover, Pioneer, Heroine, Romantic, Believer, Escapist, Voyager, Creator. — How cute are the names selected for this collection!
SHADES TO TRY
My top 5 shades are (1) Loyalist — at first i thought this was going to look zombie-ish on me cos’ of its light nude color on the tube. But luckily it dries down one shade darker on me, which makes it a nice light muted nude when worn. Please take note though, that I’m prone to lipstick oxidation so lip creams tend to set a shade darker on me talaga. Which may not be the case for everyone so I urge you to try it at the counters first to be sure! The same goes with the shade (2) Dreamer, only this one is slightly pink-ish.
(3) Lover, a mauve pink shade is the crowd favorite. Probably cos Valentines season brings out the “lover” in us! Hahaha naks! (4) Pioneer, a classic red is for the sophisticated sexy ladies. (5) Voyager is definitely for those who are in to vampy red lipsticks. I have to be honest it was hard to apply Pioneer and Voyager because they are bold vibrant colors. Application has to be perfect so you’re definitely going to need lip liners that’ll go well with these colors.
Which shade is your fave?
