Paint Your Pout Perfect: A Review of MAYBELLINE Super Stay Matte Ink Lipstick in PIONEER

Reviewing lipstick is not something I do often. While I appreciate lipstick, I struggle to review it effectively. I adore lipsticks, and I'm unsure about which type and shade would suit me best.

Truth be told, my beauty pouch is overflowing with lipsticks. I always have it on hand because you never know what might happen. Every now and then, I receive event invitations via email or find myself attending small gatherings where it's important to be well-prepared and look fabulous.

However, all the lipsticks in my pouch are in nude or earthy tones. During photo sessions, I often appear pale, which I really dislike. I don't like dark lipstick but now I'm on the hunt for a matte lipstick that doesn't look messy. I prefer a high-quality lipstick that is affordable. Something vibrant and stunning to admire. And something that has long-lasting power without the need for frequent reapplication.

Finding this product at Watsons brings me so much joy. Upon spotting it in the Maybelline display, I quickly grabbed it without even knowing the exact shade of red. I seem to remember that I found the packaging's color to be captivating. Upon arriving home and preparing to unbox it, I discovered that I received the shade PIONEER.

This Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in #20 PIONEER provides a matte finish and can last up to 16 hours. This product offers a smudge-free, matte finish with a variety of saturated shades, such as classic reds, nudes, and bold brights. This lipstick offers intense color payoff, stays put without transferring, and comes with a specialized arrow-shaped applicator for accurate application.

The Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is formulated to be safe for those with sensitivities, as it is free of common allergens and potentially irritating ingredients like gluten, nickel, lanolin, paraben, topical antibiotics, MCI/MI, soy, propylene glycol, oil, and SLS.

  • Pros
         +Highly pigmented
         +Unique arrow applicator
         +Flawless matte finish
         +Lasts all day
         +Softens lips

  • Cons 
         -Some say the color isn't for them
         -Some say the texture is sticky

Both the advantages and disadvantages mentioned are accurate. The texture is quite sticky, so I find myself applying lip gloss to counteract it. However, this compromises the matte finish, which is why I opt to leave it as is.

The MAYBELLINE Super Stay Matte Ink Lipstick in PIONEER is a standout choice for anyone seeking a bold, resilient color that truly lasts. This review dives into the features that make PIONEER a must-have in your makeup collection.
