Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayons Review + Swatches

Sunday 20 October 2019

I am a Summer girl, I much prefer the sunshine, the warmer weather, and the brighter colours, but there is also something wonderful about Autumnal colours. Earlier this year, Maybelline released the Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayons in a wide range of colours, and so I picked up some gorgeous Autumnal shades to get me in the mood.
The Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayons are an intense matte lip colour which give wear up to eight hours, which is incredible for a lip crayon. They come in a pencil style and have a super easy-to-use crayon, which gives you perfect application each and every time.

There are 12 shades available, with a colour for every style, skin tone and personality, and the three Autumnal shades I opted for are;
10 Trust Your Gut - A toffee nude
40 Laugh Louder - An orange-toned red
45 Hustle in Heels - A blue-toned red
As a rule, orange-toned reds can make your teeth appear slightly less than white, and looking at the packaging, I expected Laugh Louder to be more orange than it actually is. However, I found it to be more on the red side, and so it doesn't affect the colour of my teeth. Trust Your Gut is a lovely warmer nuder, and slightly darker than I would choose as an every day nude in the Summer months, but is a great nude for the colder months. Hustle In Heels is a blue-toned red, which means it actually makes your teeth look whiter, so you have got to love that!

I don't tend to wear a red lip on a daily basis, but I think on a weekend if I am going somewhere, especially at this time of year, it is a really great pop of colour against darker clothing. Plus, Hustle In Heels is going to be great for the festive season, especially if you top it off with a gloss.
The formula of the Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayons is super smooth and once applied to the lips, I found that it didn't budge or smudge, neither did it fade. I always forget to reapply my lip colour and so this is perfect for me. I also love the fact that there is a sharpened on the other end of the crayon, so you can sharpen the tip and use it as a liner before going in and colouring in the rest of the lips.

The Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayons cost £9.99 each, but as with most high-street beauty brands, you can nearly always find an offer on and I got these on a 3 for 2 deal. You can find them online at Boots here.

All the Loves,
