It began rather innocently, this journey of ours. I had to catch an early morning flight—so I left home at 7 am, with minimal make-up and a dab of my new lipstick. Two meals, long delays and a flight later, I reached my destination 12-hours later. When I looked into the mirror that night, I’d expected to see tired eyes, chapped lips and pale cheeks. While the rest of my predictions turned out to be true, one didn’t. My lipstick was still unscathed! It’s safe to say that I was beyond blown. Rummaging through my luggage, I found my make-up wipes, only to find out that they too couldn't take it off. It dawned on me that I’d found the ultimate 12-hour lipstick.
I was intrigued. I wanted to test it once again before recommending it to you. And so I wore it to work because where else do I spend most of my day eating? Here’s an honest account of what happened:
The morning coffee test was an obvious success, I didn’t need to reapply it because literally, nothing came off! Post that I had lunch, another cup of coffee and an apple at 5 pm. Here’s the timeline:
A perfect pout that didn't need any touch-ups last me through a full work day. I reached home at 7 pm. Though the rest of my make-up had come off and my dark circles were on display, my lipstick was still on-point!
It was official. Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick - Dreamer is a must-have and for good reason.
Here’s my honest opinion, the liquid lipstick takes a while to dry and might seem a little sticky in the initial hour but once it settles in, it refuses to budge. If you have dry lips, it's best to moisturise your lips after you remove it. Use an oil-based remover to get rid of it at the end of the day.
Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick comes in 10 shades. It's intensely pigmented matte formula makes sure you’ll definitely fall in love with it. All in all, the best Rs. 650 I’ve ever spent.
