{Review} Maybelline Super Stay Matte Lippies - Paint The Town Chic

{Review} Maybelline Super Stay Matte Lippies

Any Maybelline fans out there?  Influenster recently sent me two of Maybelline's new Super Stay Matte Lipsticks and what better day than today, National Lipstick Day, to share a review on these lippies!
Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks in Pioneer (cherry red) and Lover (rosy pink-nude) c/o (swatches in different lights above)

Maybelline is my favorite drugstore brand and so I was really excited to test these out.  At first glance, I loved the shades I received and the sleek packaging.  Both shades would work well on most skin tones - a cherry red and a rosy pink.  But after further examination and testing, I have mixed feelings about them.  The applicator was fantastic; it was easy to spread the liquid lipstick without wasting product.  Once dried, you're left with a beautiful matte finish that doesn't budge; I wore them around NYC and I didn't have to reapply, even after drinking!  This product is supposed to last 16 hours, and for the most part, I believe it.  They also have a nice scent.

Tip #1: Once you've applied the lipstick to your liking, let it dry completely before closing lips (I had lipstick transfer to my teeth and it was annoying.)
Tip #2: This lipstick is almost impossible to remove, except for this trick I accidentally found out.  Layer on a lip moisturizer over the lipstick and that loosens the color, making it easier for removal.  I tried everything, including a makeup remover and nothing worked but that.  Some people have suggested an oil based cleanser so I may try that.

Final Verdict: Even layered over a lip moisturizer, my lips just felt way too dry and a little sticky for comfort.  I love the shades, but I don't think I'd purchase these lippies again.

And here is Pioneer on!  I'm not a matchy-matchy type, but I loved how this red shade complimented the tank I'm wearing.  It will be a great pop of color for future outfits as well.

I received these lipsticks complimentary from Influenster and Maybelline.  All opinions shared above are my own.
