Before I get started, I just wanted to tell you that I don't really wear liquid lipstick anymore because my lips are very prone to dryness no matter how many tons of lip balms I wear. But when I came across this Maybelline liquid lipstick, I remember looking into the mirror and said "Oh wow, my lipstick is still there! And my lips aren't that chapped!" - and that was after I had tons of ketupat, rendang, kuih raya and coke. Sounds impressive right, but is it too good to be true or really lives up to its claim? Scroll down to find out!

Product claims:

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink is non-drying matte liquid lipstick that lasts up to 16 hours and is waterproof, smudge-proof and transfer-proof. It also promises an intense pigmentation yet affordable. Apart from that, it has a unique applicator that ensure precise application.

Let's talk about the packaging! 

I love it. I am a sucker for beautiful packaging. First impression matters, right? The tube is rectangular with chrome fonts and a rough texture for better grip experience. Me likey! The wand has an "arrow" with a hole at the center type of wand instead of a normal doe foot applicator. To me it's nice, it picks up more product but I don't see it's offering a precise application, I don't enjoy it as much.


My experience wearing the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick:

I got one of the lightest shade in the collection called Loyalist. The reason why I bought this particular shade was because it's easier for me to create my own lip combo with this kind of shade. This liquid lipstick do have a strong yummy scent, it almost smells like vanilla cake frosting. That's the first thing I noticed upon swatching it but I wouldn't mind honestly.

The finish is matte, hence the name. Despite it being a matte formula, it does apply smoothly on the lips. Just a little heads up, it feels a little bit sticky at first, it took a while to dry down completely matte and it's a hassle to take it off. I like the fact that it does not feel too too drying on the lips compared to other liquid lipstick I tried.

I also like the fact that the color is so pigmented and you get the true color in one single swipe! It's extremely waterproof, that's why it's a hassle to remove. The only way the liquid lipstick is going to come off you lips is with a good makeup remover or cleansing oil.

Pros:

Intense pigmentation 
Great staying power
Not too drying
Waterproof 
Great value for money
Easily accessible 
Pleasant scent
Sturdy packaging 

Cons:

Feels tacky and sticky at first 
I don't like the applicator


Overall:

The Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is definitely worth the money. It's one of the best liquid lipstick I have ever tried. I really recommend it especially for those who are looking for something that is super long lasting and not worrying about touching up.

You can get this at most drugstores nationwide for around RM30+. Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy xx
