[REVIEW + SWATCHES] Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Loyalist & Driver

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Loyalist & Driver Review:

I’ve been eyeing these new liquid lipstick from Maybelline for months. It’s not a new thing for Maybelline since they did release liquid lipsticks in the past before but in my opinion it’s not hyped on the beauty industry and the formulas aren’t the best either.

That’s why I’m curious with the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick because everyone is so hyped and I can see it everywhere. Finally I decided to join the bandwagon and purchased 2 shades from the collection.

I have to say Maybelline really did well with the shade range. They made 10 shades originally but added 10 more shades. You can find almost every shade start from n*des to really deep and bold shades. Everyone can find their favorite shade from the collection.

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Loyalist & Driver Review:

When I saw the advertisement for this lipstick for the first time, I really love the packaging. It’s cute and quite unique for Maybelline. It has white lid and the bottle has exact shade with the lipstick inside. On the very bottom part you can see the shade’s name and the volume of the lipstick. It’s made from plastic but it’s a matte plastic. The matte texture makes the packaging feel more high-end and for the price, it’s really good and unexpected.

The bottle is rectangular-shaped and has a little weight on it. It’s quite big for a liquid lipstick but it fits on my make up purse perfectly. I have no problem bring them with me when I go out since they didn’t take too much space.

When I want to pull the applicator out of the bottle, I have to pull it hard because the applicator kinda stuck inside. I don’t know if it’s a defect or just because of the stopper on the bottle but it happens to both of my lipsticks.

The applicator is a doe-foot applicator with teardrop shape and a tiny hole in the middle. If I’m not mistaken, the tiny hole makes the applicator picks up enough product. I have thin lips so it’s hard for me to draw a precise line especially on my cupid’s bow area. That’s why the teardrop shape is really useful for me. Because of its pointed tip, I can apply the lipstick easier.

I pick shade Loyalist and Driver from the collection. Loyalist is a soft pink shade with neutral undertone. When I swatch it on my hand, the shade looks more like deeper neutral pink but when I apply it on the lips, the shade turns to a soft pink.

I don’t really like how the shade look on my lips but after I let it set for a few minutes, the shade does oxidize to a darker pink and I really like it. This pink shade will suit people with fair to light complexion. On medium to deep undertone, this shade might make them look pale.

Driver is a brownish orange shade. I really love this type of shade because it’s bold yet wearable at the same time. When I swatch it, I know I would love this shade on me but I was wrong. The shade on my lips looks really yellow and pale. I let it dry down first but even after a few minutes the shade didn’t oxidize and still look yellow. To be honest I’m really disappointed with this shade. It doesn’t look like the swatch at all.

They have a very sticky texture it feels like I’m applying a glue on my lips. Because of its stickiness, it’s so patchy and hard to cover the lips evenly. I have to apply more than a layer to make my lips look even. Do not smack your lips after applying this lipstick because it will stick your upper and bottom lips together. I really have to keep my mouth open so it doesn’t make a mess.

The finish is really matte but it feels so heavy on the lips. It feels like there’s a liquid glue on my lips because it feels sticky all day and so uncomfortable on the lips. It also make my lips feel dry but fortunately it doesn’t emphasis my dry parts and fine lines.

Because of the texture, it is really long lasting! Even after I eat and drink, it doesn’t move or fade away. I really like the lasting power but it makes the lipstick hard to remove, even with an oil remover. I have to tug my lips (which I shouldn’t) to get the color off of my lips but still, I have to use extra remover to be able to remove it.

Loyalist is a lighter shade so it’s easier to remove than Driver. Once I have Driver on my lips for days even after I use different type of remover.

Overall, I hope Maybelline can upgrade the formula. Even though it has good lasting power, I’m not sure I’ll wear it again if I have to feel that uncomfortable. I won’t repurchase other shades and maybe I’ll give one of mine to my friend because I know I won’t wear it again in the future.
