Every morning when I go to work, I have the same routine: get up, wash my face, have breakfast, getting dressed, do my make up, grab my lunch and leave. Because I like to sleep as much as possible, my make up routine is tidy as well. I always do the same thing, wear the same neutral eyeshadow and lipstick.
Recently, I went to my Pharmacie Jean-Coutu and noticed the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink. At first, the packaging caught my eye, because it’s so simple yet effective. A matte, square shaped tube matching the liquid lipstick colour inside. Okay, it’s blend when I describe it like that, but when you have 3 rows of different colors on top of the other on a shelve, it catches your attention.
I decided to try it. Who doesn’t love a matte liquid lipstick! So I went with my basic, a pink-mauve kind of nude called Seductress. I got it on sale for maybe 9$, but usually it’s under 12$.
So I tried it for a week during my morning hurry-up-and-go-to-work routine. The Maybelline Super Matte Stay Ink has an arrow shaped, soft applicator and it’s really easy to apply without making a mess. And the pigment is there! A little goes a long way. The formula doesn’t dry your lips like matte liquid lipsticks usually does, and I must tell you: it stays a little sticky for a while. Don’t freak out, it’s normal.
But WOW! It’s the first lipstick I have ever tried that stays that long! I mean, I apply it after breakfast in the morning, I go to work, eat lunch, come back home, eat dinner, watch tv, and when I remove my makeup before going to bed at night, I SWEAR it’s still there. Not only the outline, everything is there! And I never reapplied it. NE-VER! I have to work with my micellar water to remove it, otherwise it’s not moving.
My mom was sceptical about it, until we went out one night and she asked when I reapplied my lipstick and I said “… I didn’t reapplied it since this morning before we left!” …. and she was sold!
If you want to see for yourself, I posted a Story, which is now in my Highlights on Instagram, under Reviews. It’s in French, but you will see it in action.
Since I started spreading the word about the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink, a bunch of people I know bought it and told me how they love it. They loved it so much that they will (or already have) go back to get different colours. I know I definitely have to go back and get a couple new shades!
You can find the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in drugstores, and in Jean-Coutu right here.
Have you tried the Super Stay Matte Ink yet? If so, what did you think?
Let me know, I want to have to input on that!
