I’m pretty sure that every other beauty post I write is about drugstore lip products. What can I say? I have a weakness! Lucky for you, I found another lippie gem that I’m convinced is the only long-wear drugstore lipstick you need for summer. Drum roll please … introducing the new Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Color!
OH MY GOSH I’M OBSESSED. No, seriously. It’s rare that a product impresses me to this level right away, and that’s exactly what the Matte Ink lippies have done.
The formula is a dream – it’s easy to apply and blend without it drying down too quick. The pigment also is super opaque, so one coat is all you need. Oh, and did I mention that it also smells ah-mazing? There’s kind of a hint of vanilla going on, and I’m a-okay with it.
Hands-down the best quality of this lipstick is the lasting power. It’s ridiculously long-wearing. I can apply this at 10 a.m. and not have it budge until I take it off before bed. It holds up through eating, drinking, etc. Ryan even is a fan because he can kiss me without the dreaded lipstick transfer! Not even the Wet ‘n’ Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick stays put like that.
I only have two colors right now, but I plan to raid the drugstore shelf for more as soon as possible. Lover is the perfect everyday, pink/mauve color. Pioneer packs a bit more punch as a summertime-appropriate red – it would be perfect for 4th of July celebrations next week!
Are you convinced yet that the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Color is the only long-wear drugstore lipstick you need for summer? Shoot me an email if you need more reasons – I’m sure I can come up with a few. 😉
