Maybelline Liquid Lipstick Review

I’ve never received any products completely out of the blue like this before so I was surprised and excited to try these. I’m always a little hesitant when I receive a product for free. Mostly I’m thinking ‘if they’re sending it to me for free with no strings attached, how good can it be?!’ And that’s really just my own self-doubt kicking in, isn’t it? A lot of my favourite products are by Maybelline, but I have to say I’ve never been overly impressed by any drugstore lip products recently. Enter the Maybelline Stay Matte Ink, Un-Nude style.

I was instantly drawn in by the colour range in this collection. Not all of the shades are for me, and not all of the ones I love suit my skin tone nicely. But there’s really something for everyone here!

on the packaging…

Though I’m in love with the vault-style it came in, I’m not blown away by the packaging of the individual products. I do think is better than the kitschy style a lot of brands have been going for lately, but it’s nothing to write home about. The square shape ensures that you know the product is fully closed, and it doesn’t roll away when you put it down. But, they are a bit bigger than I would normally carry around. That being said, I’m really impressed by is the applicator itself. It’s shaped almost like a pair of lips, and is revolutionary. I’m blown away at how easy it is to apply this product because of this applicator. The whole applicator is soft, but has pointed edges so it’s easy to both swipe the product on from side to side, or dab it on for touching up.

on the formula…

What I’m looking for in a liquid lipstick formula: doesn’t come off on everything, doesn’t feel caked on my lips, isn’t too runny when first applied. This checks ALL the boxes. Though the formula is a bit sticky to the touch (nothing like gloss, don’t worry), it never comes off. I gave Cordie (my sweet pup) a lot of kisses just minutes after applying this and her fur was still perfectly golden. No traces left behind! Even after having a little bit of a greasy lunch I still had a near perfect lip. I genuinely prefer this to my Kylie Cosmetics because it feels weightless on my lips. I was not expecting to be a huge fan of the formula, but here we are!

on the price point…

Each liquid lipstick costs $11.99 full price. But, Maybelline is carried at stores like Walmart that almost always have a sale going if you’re looking for cheaper. All things considered I would absolutely spend the $12 to repurchase my favourite colours when they run out. Speaking of…

my favourites…

Like I said, I love the colour range, but not every colour is for me. I think the shade poet is so cute but it’s way too pink for my skin tone. I also love the purples and particularly the greyish shade, but I’m not sure how much use I’ll get out of it. So far, the ones I know I’ll get the most use out of are the red and the brown shades. I love the Maybelline is at least trying to take nude shades in a new direction. Honestly, I haven’t seen most of these shades around that much. I know I’ve been on the hunt for this particular colour of red for over a year now and haven’t been able to find it until now!

Have any of you had a chance to try out this liquid lipstick yet? Are there any other drug store lip products I’ve been missing out on?!
