Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Color

Let us introduce you to the best longwear formula thus far—the Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Color ($11.99). For once, you can rock a matte lip without worrying about your lips cracking open from sheer dryness. Many of the shades are so neutral and natural, they tend to fade into subtle lip stains, instead of that weird feathered liquid lip look that we all know so well. We’re not the biggest fans of matte lips, but these are comfortable and stay put forever, so they come in handy when your days are long. (Or if you just want to wear an amazing lip color for dinner and drinks!)

For best results, application technique is key. Using the super precise arrow applicator, apply a thin layer of product while keeping your top and bottom lips separated (don’t mash them together!). Once that’s dry (0.3 seconds), apply another layer, which would be more than enough since the formula is ultra-pigmented.

Now all you have to worry about is which shade to pick up first! And maybe pair your fave color with the amazing Total Temptation collection.
