I’m not sure what it is about the Maybelline Fighter Super Stay Matte Ink (75) but I’m just not a fan. I don’t know if my issue is with the shade itself, the way it applies on the lips or the general texture of this liquid lipstick but this lipstick just gets a no from me.
To start off when I applied this lipstick, I was suprised by how orange it was. As this is part of a nude lipstick collection that Maybelline have been pushing in the UK, I expected the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in Fighter to be a cinnamon brown lipstick rather than a dark orange lipstick – because trust me, there’s a HUGE difference between the two shade.
While I do like the shape of the diamond-tip applicator and the fact that it has a little hole which stores products to aid application, I found it a little difficult to sculpt a clean shape on my lips as the tip of the diamond was quite dry and did not pick up product very well, which lead to my lips having an uneven finish.
On the lips, this lipstick looks drier than it feels. Although I thought it felt mousse-like and tacky on my lips, when I looked in the mirror it actually accentuated the dry patches of my lips which is not flattering in the least. Personally I would not recommend the Maybelline Fighter Super Stay Matte Ink as I don’t think it is particularly good but I need to try other shades in the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink range before I condemn the entire range.
The Maybelline Fighter Super Stay Matte Ink (75) costs £9.99 and last 7 hours on my lips.
