Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink (Self Starter and Versatile) Review Plus Swatches

Since the start of 2021, I have been on a hunt for a long wearing lip product that won't smudge underneath a mask. Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink is one of the first liquid lipsticks that I have tried years ago and still one my best bet. Maybelline has released tons of shades from nudes to reds. They recently sent me these two colors perfect for the summer. 
Versatile is a pretty medium peach.
Self Starter is a bright coral orange.
Both shades are suitable for everyday wear.
Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink is a creamy liquid lipstick. This product is very pigmented and covers my dark lip lines very well sans lip liner. It may feel tacky upon initial application but after it sets, this product feels like nothing on the lips. This does not set instantly and takes a few minutes to dry which is okay because I have time to blend and spread the product. This does not bleed nor make my lips crack. It does not also emphasize the dry flaky skin on my lips. It is really long wearing and transfer proof once it set. It does smugde if you eat. It also has a fragrant sweet scent which I am not fond of. It is best applied thinly and spread over with the use of the fingers. I suggest using a good oil or balm cleanser helps remove the product easier.

  1. Beautiful shades! I personally prefer Self Starter, color-wise. Such a nice bright color! :)

  2. This is a must-try, Attorney! Since the pandemic started, I've stopped wearing make up because the mask always messes it up. This product gives me hope. I'd definitely get myself one of these.
