Super Saturated But Far Too Drying : Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick


dsc_9045There is a reason I stay away from matte lipsticks even though they are generally far more lasting than your regular lipstick and that’s because they are far too drying for my lips. I tried Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick because I had such a nice shade. It’s #15 Lover, there are apparently 36 shades in this collection but not sure if all are available in Malaysia. I very much doubt all the shades were sold here as some shades are so funky that they probably only belong on the runway.

Although I like this fuchsia shade very much, I have to stick to less drying lipstick textures. I had to apply lip balm over this and it still felt a bit too drying to be comfortable. The arrow applicator ensures easy and fast application. It doesn’t budge at all, even when I washed the swatch with soap. Had to use a cleanser and even then had to rinse a few times to remove the colour from my skin.
