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.
