Hello my lovelies,
I’m back with another review, I love writing reviews mainly because I try so many products that it is nice to share with like minded people what I think of them. I read a lot of reviews especially when I am sat on the fence about a product and not sure whether I should invest my money. I will say though, this is my opinion and different products work for different people so don’t take this a gospel.
Now anyone that knows me, knows that I adore lipstick. In recent years it has been liquid lipstick but I will not apply make up without putting something on my lips. 97% of the time it’s matte because that’s what I prefer, personal preference. As I am a bit of a lipstick junkie I do try an awful lot of liquid lipsticks, some have been great and some have been god damn awful.
In walk these babies that are a relatively new product with Maybelline. I saw their range and thought do you know what let’s give them a try. Their shade range for a fairly new launch was pretty extensive which I was really impressed by. I was trying to pick a shade that I don’t really have in my collection which is pretty tough because I have so many. I decided to go for shade 95 Visionary and 15 Lover.
I really like the packaging, I know it’s about the product but its nice to appreciate what they look like because I am a complete sucker for packaging. I love that you can clearly see what colour it is rather than having to open it up. It’s a lot easier when you are searching through your collection finding a shade!
In the picture above for reference the top colour is 15 Lover and the bottom is 95 Visionary.
So onto the actual lipsticks. Now it has a doe-foot applicator which I love but it is a slightly different shape. It’s pointed at the end which is perfect for creating the precise line going around your lips – it makes life a lot easier. It also has in the middle of the applicator a hole. I’m really not sure what this adds to the application but it doesn’t hinder application in fact it’s quite a joy to apply.
These dry pretty quickly into place which I love because I’m not about fanning my lips for them to dry – it’s why I don’t paint my nails I just don’t have the patience. They go into a complete matte finish as the name suggests almost instantly. Something that really gives this formula extra points is that I never have lipstick marks around my cups. It literally stays in place all day even with a lot of eating and drinking.
This whole Super Stay business really is true I have never known a formula to stay this long. So much so that when I have been a little naughty and not removed my makeup from an evening out I wake up in the morning and to be honest it looks like I have just applied it. It’s perfect for when you are on the go and don’t have time to constantly top up your lipstick which really is the story of my life at the moment.
Now, my only annoyance is to do with the longevity of the lipstick. So it stays all day – great. But the struggle of removing this is unreal. I have used all my cleansers and potions to remove this and my god do you have to scrub. My lips hurt after I remove it I mean when I remove the purple lipstick if it isn’t all removed I look like I have bruises all round my lips. Not the greatest look!
Because I loved these so much I gifted one to my best friend as she is a complete liquid lipstick lover like me. She also had the same issue with removal – so I think there is a little issue here. I mean I have some amazing cleansers in my collection and seriously none of them remove it with ease – so a little word of warning there.
If you can see past the trickiness of removing the lipstick then actually this is the best formula of liquid lipstick on the market in my opinion. I am so impressed by them and for £9.99 it’s really a no brainer. I flipping love this lipstick and the shades I have I absolutely adore. For Maybelline to bring something out like this and blow out the likes of Rimmel, Kat Von D etc. I’m just in awe.
I will be buying so many more of these shades I just know it – although I think I need advice on how to remove it because it really is the only drawback that I have found. I wear these so often I just can’t get enough, until that is when I come to remove it and I get annoyed that I’m going to have to spend ages scrubbing my lips.
