The hottest new launches in the market are the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks which have been finally released in India. I got to swatch five of the shades yesterday and I thought I will share the swatches with you guys also for reference. The five shades I tested were Lover, Dreamer, Escapist, Loyalist, and Heroine. This range has such a diverse shade range that I am sure everybody will find something which they like in this range.
First Impressions of Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks:
The packaging of these lipsticks is something I loved. They look elegant and classy and are easy to use. The applicator is also quite soft and picks up just enough product. The quantity is also good for the price and the texture is also very soft on the lips. It is a bit similar to Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Creams.The lipsticks dry to a semi-matte finish and I tried one of the shades in store and it stayed for approximately 5 hours before I removed it with a makeup remover.
I would say that the lighter colors are more wearable than the darker ones as the dark shades seem a bit heavy and do not dry evenly. They feel a little heavy on the lips and fade unevenly whereas the lighter colors feel lightweight and give a uniform color. Pigmentation wise these lipsticks are good and they deliver even color in one swipe except Loyalist for which I had to swipe thrice to get a nice opaque color.
Out of these five shades, I absolutely loved lover, dreamer, and escapist. Lover is a very wearable rose pink shade and looks very similar to MAC Mehr. Dreamer is a bit lighter than Lover and will suit fairer skin tones. I think Loyalist would wash out most Indian skin tones. Escapist is a beautiful wine-plum shade and will be perfect for winters. Heroine is a bright orange shade which will look gorgeous on all skin tones. It is a perfect Summer pool party shade.

These lipsticks are priced at 650 INR each which is decent enough considering how lipsticks are priced these days but i expected an affordable price tag from Maybelline which is known to be a drugstore brand.

I’m sorry to hear that the darker colors are inconsistent. I love the Escapist and that would have been first for me to try. How does “Lover” do? That would be my second choice.
oops i haven’t seen these on drugstores yet! But i am loving those colors, especially the nude ones!
The shades look great, I love pale pinks and red. Would love to see how it looks like on the lips
I really like the pale pinks, they’re so subtle and Lover is pretty too. I’m not a huge fan of lipsticks so the natural, softer colors always appeal more.
i love the fact that they last for like ever but they always ruin my lips! and after like half a day it peels off all funny! not too bad when its a light colour but when its one of the darker one it just look horrendous!
I haven’t tried these ones so might give it a go! Hopefully they wont have the same problem!
I like the lover shade, it would suit me very well. I do have a purple shade lip gloss from Maybelline but I don’t feel that it lasts too long and because of the bold color I don’t really wear it because I’ll have to top it up all the time.
These look like nice, fun shades for winter. and long lasting to me is key. Has to make it longer than an hour on my lips!
I am that LOVER shade very pretty and for me it can go well for my day and evening time both.
I have never tried liquid lipstick before but I am thinking to try it this time. The colour range of Maybelline liquids lipstick is really amazing. I would love to try the Dreamer and Heroine shade..
I love a liquid lip, especially matte colors. It’s hard to find dark matte liquid lips that are quality and decently priced. Lover looks really pretty, I may need to try this one!
Matte finish is my style when it comes with lipstick and I have very good reviews too about maybelline products.
I love Maybelline lipsticks. Their pigments are rich and they seem to last longer than the other drugstore brands.
Now I need to look for these on my way to work tomorrow! I have a terrible time with anything lip related as mine dry out so far but these look like they might work well for me, love the Lover shade!
Ahhh I hope I can get my hands on these soon! I’m a sucker for nude shades and there;s some beautiful colours here.
I love the packaging, these look beautiful. I may have to try some of these out.
Thanks for such an honest review! I’ve had my eyes on these especially #45! But due to the inconsistency I will hold off on purchasing
These lipsticks are gorgeous! I think my favorites are definitely the lighter colors as I don’t think I can really rock the darker shades except for red. 🙂
Lover shade is my favorite. It lasts long and matches my skin tone. Thanks for sharing this post. ?
I’m not a big fan of matte colors, but these are pretty shades. I really like Escapist and Lover.
Heroine and over are my kind of shades, I may check these out, I always like a new shade to add to my collection x
I am fond of Maybelline lip paints. Some great shades you have shown in pics here I will like to try few.
I really love Maybelline brand. and this matte ink liquid lipstick looks so stunning. I will definitely try this lipstick.
I like the packaging of these lipsticks, they are so sleek and the shades are pretty too. The formula sounds good, I will check these out.
I just bought some of these! They are not my favorites, but I think they already give you good value for your money.
I love Maybelline brand, their products are fantastic. All these shades are beautiful, but I like “lover” more.
Beautiful shades and nice packaging. I feel like I want to put it on now!
Awww! The lover and escapist colors are absolutely amazing! I should get them asap ( Their products are amazing!
I’ve never heard of these but the colours are really nice especially the dark ones.
I love the superstay lip colors! They are really long lasting. I had to use coconut oil to remove it all!
