Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon (Review and Swatches)

If you’re looking for a long-lasting lip colour that is matte, in innovative packaging, then the Maybelline Super Stay ink crayon

is a must-have.

The line has 12 colours in total. I chose the lighter shades: Trust your Gut and Stay Exceptional.

The shades are matte and saturated with pigment. There is very little transfer and if lasts a while on your lips. It fades as you reach the 4-hour mark. it does dry out your lips. It has a waxy feel that doesn’t dry completely matte, it is remains slightly tacky remains. It glides on the lips effortlessly and I find that I get one swipe opacity.

But, if your have dry lips the smoothness of initial application will disappear and the lipstick will settle into fine lines on your lips. This is uncharacteristic for lighter shades because I do have pigmented lips. Layer this and you will feel the waxiness on your lips.

The tip is shaped to give you precision. It comes with a built-in sharpener on the other end of the component. Remember to push the nib of the pencil gently into the sharpener to get the point. To prevent a hot mess, do not press the sharpener onto the lipstick, it will smash the product.

Side note: I often say that a lipstick lasts longer if you don’t eat or drink? I know beauty is painful, but must we starve to make a lipstick last on our lips? Just food for thought.
