Beauty Review: Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink


 

 

Hooray! It’s everyone’s favorite time – Beauty Review time! Today I am reviewing Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink lipstick.

I went into Wal-Mart for TWO THINGS and lipstick was not one of them! I loved the pretty colors and haven’t purchased a lipstick in a while so I went for it.

This Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink is in shade 115 Founder. It’s a gorgeous shade, perfect for fall! So my first impressions – the applicator is weird. It has an indent in the middle of the sponge. And the sponge isn’t very spongey if that makes sense! I DO however like the pointed tip (just the tip!). It makes lining the lips much easier.
The lip product goes on pretty smooth and you don’t need a lot of it to get a good full coverage on your lips. Immediately after applying, the product is super sticky. Not lip gloss sticky, but like I just put glue on my lips sticky. I expected that to go away within a few minutes, but nope, no such luck. The stickiness lasted for several hours. Every time I opened my mouth to talk, I was paused a second while my lips unglued themselves from each other.
This lipstick lasts a LONG time. I drank coffee, water and even went to work out and it stayed. Most lip products claiming super stay don’t make it past 11 am, but I am happy to report this one did last. I put a second application on after lunchtime, but I definitely didn’t need to.
 The Bottom Line: I love the color, love the staying power, but just can’t get over the stickiness of this. I probably won’t return it just because it’s too much effort, but I don’t think I will be wearing this again.

Lipstick, My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things – Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

Urban-Decay-Revolution-Lipstick-1All my readers at Purrfectly Beautiful know that this kitty loves lipstick. And my all-time favorite lipstick these days (it could change at any minute) is Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipsticks.  These lipsticks are EVERYTHING! The colors are totally fab! Bright, bold, look at me colors, that make you strut your stuff when wearing them, I’m not kidding!  My two favorite colors are Anarchy and Obsessed.

The wear time on this lipstick is insane! It lasts 8+ hours. I am a huge water drinker and even through multiple water bottles my lipstick lasts 8 hours. I apply first thing in the AM and that’s it-it lasts all day. There is nothing I love more than long-wearing lipstick.

Another thing I LOVE about this lipstick it is made without parabens, sulfates and phtalates! Those are horrible icky things that I don’t like in my make-up.

There is a color for everyone in the Revolution Lipstick line. Urban Decay will not disappoint you! Go out and get this lipstick and send me your lip pics!

I give this lipstick 4 paws up!
