Hello lovelies! I received this complimentary Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shades “Pioneer” and “Lover” from Influenster, but all reviews are my own. The newest Maybelline Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks have a 16-hour lasting power.
The first shade that I tried was “Lover.” I was apprehensive because most pink shades don’t do well with my skin tone, but I was very pleased with this one. It went on smoothly, but the first application was patchy, so I had to apply a second layer. The lipstick has a dovestick applicator and smelled really good! This would be a really good lipstick to wear in professional settings as well. I will definitely be adding this to my business casual make up look. Here is a photo below.
The second shade that I tried was “Pioneer.” True make up junkies know that all Red lipstick shades were not created equal, but I loved this one!! The application went on smoothly and the smell was also amazing with this one. This shade was very pigmented and I got away with only applying one coat. The application is quite sticky at first, but it did dry down smoothly to a more matte finish. The lipstick isn’t drying at all. I loved this Red, it’s actually one of the best that I’ve ever tried. Here is a photo below.
Overall, I love these lipsticks. They are the best Drugstore Liquid Lipstick that I have tried. They are reasonably priced at around $7.94 at local drugstores, so you can’t go wrong with that as most liquid lipsticks cost an arm and a leg, lol. As far as removal, they are very hard to remove. I tried wiping it off with a make-up remover wipe, but that wasn’t enough. I ended up having to apply Coconut Oil to my lips first and then scrub it off. I would honestly recommend these lipsticks if you are interested in trying them. I look forward to adding them to my make-up regimen. The best part of all, both of these shades were Brown Girl Friendly, which I appreciated! I would rate these lipsticks a 4/5.
