It's no secret that I'm not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks, we just don't get along much, I find them so drying and uncomfortable to wear usually, that was until I tried these beauties from Maybelline.
Maybelline's Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks come in 10 gorgeous shades ranging from nudes, brights and even darker vampy shades so theres certainly a shade to suit everyone. I have the shades 45 Escapist which is a super vampy plum, 20 Pioneer which is a stunning bright red, 35 Creator which is a pretty violet shade and finally 25 Heroine which is a super bright orangey-red. Out of the four shades I own I would say Pioneer is my favourite, I've been wearing it non stop recently because it's such a gorgeous festive red!
The formula of these liquid lippies claim to have a smooth matte, second-skin effect in just one stroke that lasts for up to 12 hours with a super intense colour pay off, sounds pretty nice huh, but for me the big question was 'would my lips feel as dry and rough as sand paper'?! Well... After giving these a whirl I can definitely confirm that they really aren't drying, yes their matte but it's such a smooth, soft matte finish and the second skin claim really is true because my lips hardly feel like theres anything on them once the lippie has set which is very rare for a liquid lipstick. The colour pay off is crazy - each one is super opaque in one teeny tiny swipe and they last like nothing else I've tried before, so if you want a liquid lippie that's going to stay put all day without crumbling and without that super dry feeling then you definitely need to try these! The applicator is pretty dreamy too, it has a precise arrow applicator which makes it so easy to get crisp lines and an even coverage, I've honestly never found a liquid lipstick so easy to apply, usually I make a compete mess but theres something so amazing about this applicator!

I'm so impressed with these liquid lipsticks from Maybelline, finally I have found liquid lipsticks that actually tick all the boxes for me. I definitely want to get a couple of the nude shades now that are slightly more wearable, don't get me wrong I love a vampy lip and the red shade Pioneer hasn't really left my lips since I got it but I feel a couple of nudes would complete my collection!
