Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink – 20 Pioneer

So I only bought this lipstick to wear to Comic Con as the NYX one that I had before had started to get a little dry. I went into superdrug and was just drawn to the shade of this lipstick.

For starters the lipstick stays on for hours, I put it on at 9am and it was still on at 10.30pm when I got back to Birmingham. It stayed in place whilst I ate and drank throughout the convention and still looked as though I’d just applied it. I was very impressed with the fact that the lipstick stayed on so well for so long without making my lips dry out – my lips still felt nourished and lightweight. Even though the coverage is thick (I applied two layers to get the look that I wanted), it didn’t feel like my lips were caked in lipstick.

The shade itself is gorgeous and such a classic. I cannot recommend this lipstick enough. I am definitely going to be trying out other shades as I absolutely love how great it is.

It’s very rare that I find a lipstick that can withstand me eating and drinking. (The picture to the right was taken after I’d eaten and drank).

The lipstick is super easy to apply. The applicator it comes with is flat and curves up to a point at the top. This makes it super easy to create the look you want with the applicator – ensuring that you get just the right amount of product.

I bought this in Superdrug for £9.99 (I used my student discount so it was a little cheaper). Even though £9.99 is a little more on the higher end price for drug store make-up, it’s definitely worth it. It’s only a little bit more expensive than some others you may find but the quality is definitely there. I’m so glad I purchased this lipstick, it is amazing and I’ll definitely be trying out other shades in this brand.

I feel like I haven’t written a make-up post in ages. I have a few more planned – as much as I love blogging about movies, I love make-up posts as well. Whilst doing blogtober I mainly focused on posts about movies and Hallowen.

Have you tried Maybelline’s super stay matte ink? What did you think of it? Do you have any recommendations for good, long lasting lipsticks? I’d love to hear from you.

    That photo after you’d been eating and drinking is amazing, there’s literally no difference! I’ve seen this and wondered about it, definitely going to get one for myself now. Was it patchy at all when you applied the first layer? xx

      I know, I was sooo surprised how well it stayed on my lips! It’s so worth it honestly, one of the best lipsticks I’ve tried. A little in some parts but with the second layer they were all covered xx
