To say that I’m obsessed with lipsticks is an understatement. So when the first Maybelline Superstay matte lipstick link review went out on the internet, I was nothing but eager to have my hand on it (or lips, perhaps). It’s marketed to be kiss-proof, waterproof, and smudge-proof. Not to mention the variety of shades, it’s a new treasure that’s waiting to grace my beauty kit.
I’ve been doing beauty products review posts for some time now, but I never got so excited that with this one. So without further fluff, here’s what I personally think about this new kid on the block:
At a glance
The moment I got my Maybelline Superstay matte lipstick, I’m impressed with the angular packaging. It fits well on my beauty kit and can be placed on the table without toppling. But since I’m not a fan of liquid makeups, I’m worried that it will be cakey and runny. And since we’re talking about a superstay matte lipstick here, corrections will be one hell of a challenge.
The brush is interesting and made perfectly for easy application. Anyway, I still have my doubts because I sometimes have a bad case of shakes when it comes to applying liquid tints and lipsticks.
I tried swatching it at the back of my hand. Even with an all clean balm, it gives a challenge when removing. Now, let’s try it on my lips.
FAQs I had in mind
It’s a fact that it has a unique packaging and a stronghold. Here are some more that I’ve discovered:
How much of a “Superstay Matte Lipstick” is it?
It is indeed a superstay matte lipstick. All the Maybelline Superstay matte lipstick review posts I’ve seen are right. You can eat all you want, kiss whoever you like, and smack the surfaces you want, but it will not even budge out of your puckers.
I’m sure that all of us hate it when our matte lipstick on the cup or straw of our drinks. It ruins the look of our lips and we have to re-apply all the time which isn’t just time-consuming but it also eats up a lot of lipstick. Just make sure that the liquid lipstick dries completely before you head out. If your lips are dry, it’s best to apply a lip balm at least 20 minutes before using the Superstay matte lipstick. Don’t worry since it won’t ruin the finish of the lipstick. You can re-apply the balm after the lipstick dries.
Is it comfy to wear?
Aside from the slight feeling of dryness due to its matte finish, I don’t think that this Superstay matte lipstick is uncomfortable. Sometimes, I would even feel that it’s not actually there. But whenever I check in the mirror, the color is still intact. In fact, it’s still highly pigmented at the end of the day. If you don’t like constant touch-ups like me, this lipstick is for the books.
