Recently I received a VoxBox through Influenster with the Maybelline SuperStay Matt Ink Liquid Lipstick in the colors Pioneer & Lover. I received this box free of charge for review purposes from Influenster.
If you’re not familiar with Influenster, you can read an older, more detailed post here, but the gist is that you sign up, link your social media accounts & you can be eligible for some free products! It’s totally free, doesn’t ask for a credit card number or anything and you could potentially get free stuff! This is (I think) my 4th voxbox since I signed up in like… October of last year. So if you’d like to sign up to get your own free VoxBox, like the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Voxbox, just sign up here!
Just as a “HAHA” sidenote:
It was kind of funny. If you follow my blog, you may have seen To Parents with a Strong Willed Kid, It’s Okay To Lose Your Shit… Where Alexis decided it would be okay to waste all kinds of my stuff. Well, a few nights later she got into my makeup and well… I have next to none now. No brushes, hardly any eyeliner, no foundation, no concealer, no nothing! I’ve been walking around like a horror movie lately. So when I received notice I was in on this campaign, I was ecstatic! Funny how the universe works. <3
Here’s a video for your entertainment. Yes, this is the mess I woke up to + more.
Now to the review!
Upon first applying, I wasn’t sure about it. It was so sticky! I almost got upset because the colors were so pretty & I wanted so badly for it to be amazeballs!! Lover looked perfect for Spring/Summer and Pioneer I planned to wear like… the whole fall season. Kidding, of course, I’m totally getting Escapist as well. So obviously since I plan to get another one, it ended up not being so bad. It is sticky at first but if you follow the directions and wait it out, after about 3 minutes the stickiness goes away a LOT! The lighter Lover color is light on the lips, but still a tad drying. Pioneer is kind of heavy, but I absolutely loved how long this stuff lasts! ((Warning! Pioneer may or may not come off!!) 😉
To overcome the semi-drying feeling that it left, I applied a small amount of my Honey Blossom Chapstick Total Hydration on top of it to help. After that, it’s not really “matte” anymore, the chapstick added a tiny shine, but the color and long lasting power are what I love about the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink.
I’ve read where the darker colors seem to be a different formula (smell, texture, etc.) & I see that. However, I love how well they are pigmented and how long they last, so for the price, it’s definitely not bad.
I really appreciate Influenster allowing me to be apart of this campaign!
Again, if you’d like to sign up to get free stuff, hurry & sign up! You’re missing out!
What is your favorite color of these two? Pioneer or Lover?!
