Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

Now that autumn is almost upon us I'm ready to start wearing deeper lipstick shades and I've been really wanting to pick up a long-lasting red lipstick for a while now so I went out a few weeks back and swatched all different offerings from the drugstore and finally settled on the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lipstick in the shade Pioneer. I've wanted to try out these liquid lipsticks for a while now and I definitely want to pick up a nude shade at some point in the future.

The Matte Ink lipsticks cost £9.99 and claim to be an intense ink colour with 12-hour wear. The packaging is really pretty with each tube being coloured to match the lipstick inside and a white cap with an all matte finish. The applicator is a pointed doe-foot which allows you to get a precise application easily without the need for a lip liner.

The shade Pioneer is a deep red but still very bright and vibrant, it has that blue undertone that I love in a red lipstick, I'm not the biggest fan of more orangey-red shades purely because I don't think they suit me. I was really surprised at just how pigmented this liquid lipstick was, it is intense! It applies really easily and evenly, I was impressed that there was no patchiness and I didn't need to go in with a second coat. The shade is stunning and gives a really glam look in an instant, I love it! Once applied it takes a few minutes to dry down and initially feels a tiny bit sticky but over time this goes away and your lipstick is locked in place. Okay, so the claims state it can withstand 12 hours of wear and I actually believe them, even when I had initially swatched this on the back of my hand the day I picked this up I really struggled to remove it, it took several attempts and and a fair bit of scrubbing to get it all off and when I've worn this on the lips I've had a similar experience where I've really had to give my lips a good scrub at the end of the night after a few too many drinks and still woke up to some colour left on my lips the next morning.

I've worn this lipstick a few times now and I'm really impressed, it's extremely pigmented and very long lasting, the shade range is great and I definitely want to try out one of the nude shades in the future.
