Review for: Pioneer, Lover more...
Great pigment in Pioneer(20), applied easily. Didn't even need two coats, but I put a light second coat to give it a fair chance. 
Wand shape was initially pretty weird to me, but it actually works really good to follow the contours of my mouth without getting the product all over the places I don't want it.
Drying took longer than 3 minutes, as the directions say 3 minutes for drying time. While drying down the lipsticks were still very comfortable, moisture wise. However, I took a total of 10 minutes for it to dry down completely, but even then it still didn't have the "true matte" finish that's promised. While drying, the product was definitely sticky. Not goopy or runny, but if my lips touched each other while drying, they did stick together pretty good. Enough for me to exert a good effort when opening my mouth to get them unstuck. 
After a blot test on the back of my hand, there is obvious evidence that even with 10 minutes of drying time allotted, they were still sticky and very transferrable. That is an issue for me, since this product is advertised as a "true matte" in finish and it's meant to last for up to 16 hours. Also, upon drying down "completely" ( I use the term loosely, since they didn't actually dry down all the way) my lips were still sticking together and the outer lines of the product were feathering out onto my skin(let it be known, I don't overline my lips, so the fact it was still feathering was concerning to me). Lastly, the inner layer of product, closest to the water line of my lips, the product was wearing off within minutes of being "dried down", forming those pesky crumbles and strings of lipstick everybody hates. 
Drinking with this lipstick is a problem because of how transferable it is, even though it's supposed to be a true matte. Any liquid that may touch it, activates the lipstick again and makes it want to run and smudge. When you take your lips away from your straw or drink, CRUMBLES GALORE. 
After a few hours of having the product on, I did a second blot test before taking it off. It wasn't nearly as transferable as the first blot, but there were way more crumbles and still a  faint but obvious outline of my full lips. On the smudge rest of the two colors, there is obvious smudging from a light rub of my finger, but the lighter shade (Lover 15) was more resilient to any rubbing than the red. When removing, it was more difficult than I thought it would be. I removed with an all in one micellar cleansing water wash(removed waterproof makeup too). I had to SCRUB to get these off of my lips and my hand and wrist. So props for staying power, just not on transfer.

So while this product is VERY pigmented, doesn't dry out your lips, and is super easy to apply, I don't think it should be being marketed as a true matte finish that lasts up to 16 hours. Maybe a semi-matte and let it be known it's not transfer resistant. I love the two colors I was sent, but since I personally prefer a true matte lip finish and a non-transferable product, This product  is a no for me, but I'm very thankful for the opportunity to be one of the people to try it out before it hits stores!  Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink™ Liquid Lipstick

Review for: Lover more...
I have 4 different colors of this lipstick and I absolutely love it. It has a wand applicator and goes on like a lip gloss and is very lightweight. Once it dries, it turns from glossy to matte and stays on all day and night. If you are eating or drinking a lot, you may have to reapply a little where your lips meet but for the most part, this stuff has impeccable staying power. It is so long lasting that I cannot get it off with anything but my micellar water. Soap and water do not take it off. Since it is matte, it does dry out your lips a tad so I would moisturize your lips overnight before using this to avoid dry lips after wear. I usually don't wear lipstick because I can't stand the process of reapplying after anything touches your lips but this stuff is a staple in my makeup bag! You can also get this on Amazon with Prime shipping at a really good price!!

Review for: Dreamer more...
This is a phenomenal lip color. I purchased this because of hearing all the beauty gurus love it for its great price and longevity, and i was definitely not let down. 
Dreamer is a perfect "my lips but better" color for my skin tone. 
This liquid lip is unique in that it doesn't completely dry down, and it definitely transfers, but the color somehow stays put ALL. DAY. As in, I eat salads, pizzas, tacos, and I may have to touch up around the center of my mouth, but at the end of the work day, i can still have a good wash of color on my lips. 
This lipstick doesn't really dry my mouth out like other lipsticks, so I reach for it when I'm looking for something comfortable on my lips. It's a great formula for Winter, since it feels less drying than other mattes. 
This ink doesn't really wash off like a normal liquid lip does. After I remove my makeup and wash my face, it feels a little like a waxy residue is left over. Usually to counteract that sticky waxy feeling, I throw on a balm and go about my evening, and after a few minutes, the feeling goes away. 
I will definitely purchase more as the lip ink comes in a variety of different colors.

Review for: Romantic, Pioneer, Creator more...
I really like this liquid lipstick. Not in LOVE with it, but it does its job. It last for what seems like forever. It doesn't smudge or bleed, and it is very beautifully pigmented. One of the problems I had with it was taking it off. The products I use to remove my makeup did not work when I tried to take this product off. I had to do a lot of scrubbing, which resulted in my lips being swollen and bloody. My lips eventually formed scabs. But I guess that's my fault. But I did try 4 different removal methods that did not work for me. Another problem was that when it dries, it makes my lips feel a little dry. I have to pack on my best chapstick before using this product. Other than that, this product works perfectly. It lasts all day long, so I don't usually have to reapply throughout the day, it doesn't move from my lips, and it's very pigmented. I would definitely recommend this product.

Review for: Lover more...
This liquid lipstick is AMAZING. As with many people, I really don't like the "butt-hole" mouth look that you usually get with many liquid lippies. This one is completely life changing for me... seriously. You only need one coat since it's very pigmented, and it dries pretty fast. I saw that someone in a previous review mentioned putting on two coats and I really think that changes how the product works. With any liq. lippy, you really don't want to put on more than one layer, otherwise you'd be making the product thicker, which makes it take longer to dry and thus less transfer-proof. One thin layer is all you need for this and it dries down almost like a seal.

It does NOT budge, transfer, or crack. It's also like rubber, but a very comfortable rubber. It's not drying at all and lasted me way longer than 12 hours! My days start early and end late, so imagine my surprise when I ate a ton of greasy foods and came back home with my lipstick still looking bomb!

It does have a bit of stickiness to it though; however, it's not the kind where pigment from the bottom lip will get stuck on the top lip. It's just tacky, but nothing moves. Unless that's a major peeve of yours (and you smack you lips together a long), this lipstick is so worth it in my eyes! I just wish that came out with more unique colors. The current ones, including the new ones, kind of all stick to the same color range that Maybelline usually has: reds, lighter cool pinks, cool nudes, etc. 

Overall, I think this is by far the best drugstore formula I've tried for liquid lipsticks! No more "butthole" mouth for me! I'm just waiting for more colors (those that aren't so cool toned)!

Review for: Dreamer, Loyalist, Pioneer, Voyager, Lover more...
So let me start out by saying these do not dry down to a matte finish like you might expect. They also remain a little bit tacky on the lips after you apply. It's not really noticeable when you're talking, but don't be surprised when this happens.

With that in mind, these are my absolute, hands down, favorite liquid lipsticks on the market right now. I'm borderline handing them out to strangers on the street. Along with a nice vanilla scent, these do not get dry and crumbly on my lips because of that tackiness. Because of my lip and chin shape, when I eat with lipstick on, I get lipstick all over my chin. I wore the red, Pioneer, while I shoved saucy spaghetti into my mouth. It did not fade in the slightest. Even my guy friend was surprised that none of it had worn off, because of how much I had been eating like a pig. Since they last so well, I don't have to reapply, so I avoid putting a layer of liquid lipstick over a crumbly layer, which can happen with a dry formula.

For the price, I would highly recommend you give these a whirl. The colors are amazing, and I'm sure you'll find one you like.

Review for: Believer more...
The fact that this said super stay was the whole reason that I ended up getting it. I am always on the hunt for an awsome liquid lip that is going to survive a night out with me. Once I apply a lippie I hate reapplying so I never do. But with this omg i didn't even have to think about it since it stayed on the whole night. At first I was like ok kinda weird when applying it since the formula feels a bit like plastic and the applicator was a little different. Once applying it did take a while for it to dry which I wasn't a fan of but I still had my hair to do so I wasn't in a rush for it to dry. And once it dried it looked amazing on me! It did not budge one bit, it did feel a tad bit dry on my lips but I just put on a little bit of lip balm and it was fine. The only bad thing is trying to take it off at the end of the night!

Review for: Believer more...
I am in love with this product! At first, I was very hesitant to purchase it in "Believer" because it looks like such a deep plum color. I wasn't sure if it would look flattering against my skin tone. However, I applied one thin, single coat and it gives my lips a nice muted magenta color. It's not too bright and not too dark, making my lips have just a pop of color. A minute after I applied it on, it was untransferable. It didn't stain my chapstick (I use Nivea) and when I tried to smear my hand over it, the color did not transfer at all! I hate seeing my lip color on coffee lids, so this product is a must-have. I am so happy that I purchased it! I will say this is definitely comparable to my Smashbox Always On Matte Lipstick in "Girl Gang," which I was running low on. I really didn't want to spend $24 for another one, so this is a life-saver. I bought it for under $8! What a steal. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this product. It's such a flattering color! Just don't overdo the layering.

Review for: Lover more...
I had received this Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink liquid lip stick, mines called Lover! From Cosmopolitan Magazine to try free, after I tested it I took a survey about my experience, they must of had good reviews because it's out on the market, which I'm glad to know because I do love this liquid lip stick! This Matte Lip Ink is absolutely to die for! As soon as I opened it an saw the liquid I knew it was going to be great, the color is beautiful I have a hard time finding my color but this matched me perfectly, the texture is thick but not too thick, it goes on so smooth makes my lips soft an pop! The liquid takes a bit to dry so if you mess up an get some on your face you can wipe it away with out staining your face, which I really liked, as I glided it over my lips I could feel how creamy the lip stick was it felt like it was hydrating my lips as it went on, it filled the cracks an imperfections, the wand was shaped wonderfully to get it exactly where you want it an need it, after it dried it was impossible to remove it with out makeup wipes, which is awesome, there was no residue at all not on my food or drink, not after a kiss, not at all! My lips looked full an moisturized! It didn't dry so hard that they flaked either it didn't make my lips look dry at all or dull, it didn't stick to my teeth either! The Matte finish is gorgeous! I felt so empowered an confident, this lip stain is one of the best I have ever tried an I'm so happy I can continue to buy this! I got many compliments on my lip stick an was told it didn't look like it had been liquid! I do like some shine on my lips sometimes so I put gloss over it, an that didn't ruin the hold either with other lip ink gloss has smudged it not with this tho! I can't get over how satisfying this lip ink is! So smooth an soft, vibrant, unique, an incredible! This lip ink has got everything you want an need from a liquid lip ink!

Review for: Voyager more...
10/10 all the way! The absolute best liquid lipstick I've ever tried. I have several liquid lipsticks and this one is the only one that has truely held up for me for a matte liquid lipstick. I had Voyager on during Christmas Eve and my hub and I had went to a buffet (I live in Vegas) and was absolutely stuffed lol but the lipstick held on great! It was like I just applied it. Oily foods usually break my liquid lipsticks down but this one was incredible! Even the formula is a bit different. A little goes a long way with this but it's so great. It does still stay slightly tacky but nothing obnoxious and it was comfortable throughout the day. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome so I decided to pick up Pioneer and Lover as well.  I'd definitely repurchase and I probably will pick up more :)

Update: Still incredibly budge proof, but I have to say though, even when removing with coconut oil, it still takes a while to come off, so keep that in mind.

So I play clarinet and I practice a lot but I also love to wear makeup. So I am on the hunt for a lipstick that I can play and not have any lipstick rub onto my reed. Would this work?
