The liquid lipstick that’s both creamy AND matte

Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink Reviews

Yep, it’s possible – our Review Crew® put this Maybelline lippie to the test

Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / March 22 2018

The product

Often when we think about a matte lipstick, we also envisage that dry, tight feeling that so many formulas leave behind. If you’ve avoided matte lippies for this very reason, you’ll be happy to know that it is possible to achieve a striking matte look and benefit from the feeling of soft, luscious lips underneath. Delivering a long-lasting intense colour in liquid lipstick form, Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink coats lips in a soft-matte finish that is modern and sophisticated.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink to women aged between 18 to 34 who were looking for a long-lasting lip colour that felt comfortable to wear. 

The lowdown 

Here's what the Review Crew® loved about Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink:

The intense colour payoff: This lipstick delivered impressive results in the colour department, with Review Crew® members pleased with the vibrancy of the formula.

The creamy consistency: Creamy and matte aren’t often two words that go together, but in this lipstick’s case it was a common consensus that the Matte Ink formula applied nicely and felt soft and creamy on lips.

How long-lasting the product was: Plenty of reviewers said this lipstick didn’t budge throughout the day, delivering in spades on its long-lasting claim. “The Matte Ink lives up to the SuperStay name - stays on all day/night, through eating and drinking! No touch-ups needed!” shared Review Crew® member Monica.

Good to know: Given the long-lasting formula, it’s not surprising that some reviewers had a hard time taking the lippie off at the end of the day. Some recommended micellar water or an oil-based cleanser for best results.

The verdict

“I really loved this Matte Ink Lipstick. The application of this lipstick is so smooth that it feels like you are applying butter on your lips. It definitely stays for hours without any doubt and [I] would love to try other shades. It’s worth buying and keeping handy in your daily beauty kit.”

“Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is fantastic! First off, it smells delicious! It has a smooth, creamy consistency that glides on so easily. It has great colour payoff with one swipe without being thick, gluggy and sticky. The longevity of this lipstick is also a plus! For someone who doesn't wear a lot of lipstick purely because I'm too lazy to reapply, this formula is fantastic. It withstands meals and drinks without any problems.”

“I really loved this lipstick!! It definitely surprised me! It was pigmented like a lipstick but went on like a lip gloss and felt super light on my lips. Didn’t budge throughout the day, and was a gorgeous colour - I had so many people compliment me!”
