Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lipsticks Purples And Blues

I posted about these liquid lipsticks when I first tried them a few months back. You can check out that post here. I was just going to edit that post and add these shades to it but it would have been a super long read. If you have read that one though you will know how much I adore these lipsticks. They have probably made it to the top spot for favourite formula (and packaging). I am now up to 6 and feel like I just need the whole collection at this point. I have also got Sarah hooked on them and she pretty much has all the shades that I don't. She wears pinks and nudes. I wear purples and darks.

If you haven't read the other post here's a quick rundown of what I love about them.

- I adore the square tube. It makes it easier for my terrible hands to open
- The pointed applicator makes getting a smooth line super easy
- They smell delicious without being overpowering or too chemically
- The shade range has something for most people which is impressive for a budget brand
- They are £9.99 but I always buy them when they are on 3 for 2
- They are opaque in one swipe 
- They stay put without transferring 
- If you do need to reapply they layer without crumbling/flaking
- Hands down the most comfortable matte liquid lipstick I own. I forget I'm even wearing them. 

The only con is some people have complained that they are difficult to get off. My body shop chamomile cleanser takes it off easily though. Makeup wipes don't touch it so you will have to scrub hard but if you use an oil-based remover then you're sorted.

Creator - Bright Violet - I am obsessed with purple shades at the moment. They just work so well with my hair. I also adore a bright, in your face shade. Creator is a bright violet that is just a touch darker than Stila Como. If you love bright shades then you need this in your collection.  

Believer - Magenta - This was the shade I was most excited for because I love a purpley red but this is the one the applies the worst. It's a gorgeous shade but it just goes on super patchy. It works with a lot of lip liner but it's still not as good as the others. It's such a shame because this is the only one that doesn't apply like a dream. 

Explorer - Dark Blue - I love a dark lip and I am determined to wear even bolder shades this year. I have been in love with blue lipsticks forever but I've never been brave enough to wear them. 2019 is the year that changes. I wore this at home to ease myself in and I am in love (selfie here). Considering this is darker than Believer it applies so much better. I did use a liner because it's a scary dark colour but it wasn't remotely patchy and it lasted so damn well. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative for KVD Echo then this is exactly the same shade.
