First Impressions Friday: Maybelline Matte Ink

For old times sake, I thought I'd bring back an old fave: First Impressions Friday! Who is excited?! If it's not obvious that I am, let me explicitly tell you: I AM! Today, we're trying out a new liquid lipstick from the drugstore, and who doesn't love inexpensive makeup?

On the blog today, we have Maybelline's SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Color in the shade, "Dreamer" and we are keeping it SHORT and SWEET folks!

Overall Rating? 4/5 stars.
Pros: Inexpensive, easily accessible at all major drugstores and Ulta, excellent staying power (even through a workout and bedtime).
Cons: the color of the packaging is NOT an exact match (some are not even relatively close) to the color of the product inside and it is insanely sticky for the entirety of its wear time.

For example, if you think the picture to the right is going to yield a beautiful peachy-nude... you'd be sadly mistaken.  In fact, it's more of a marshmallow pink.  Not really my color but doable for the sake of this wear test.  Will I reach for it again? Probably not, unless I have a specific look in mind. I would have been much more satisfied with said peachy-nude. But oh well, not a major loss.

Final Verdict: Do I think it's worth your money? Probably, yes.  For just shy of $10, it definitely has some major staying power.  But you have to decide if you can get past the slightly deceiving packaging color and the tackiness that never really goes away.  XOXO
