I brought quite a bit of maybelline product after?? Before?? Xmas.. I can’t remember now but recently anyways and this was one of the products I liked the look and sound of.
I was impressed by their matte stay inks so had high hopes for this but it didn’t live up to my full expectations. It’s only an ok.
Applies nicely and sets ok. It’s colour at one end and gloss at other end. I quite like the idea as the other inks I’ve used but maybelline can be quite drying so something to add moisture is a nice touch and stops sticking.
There’s some nice colours but I didn’t actually realise it had sparkles when I purchased and I must admit I don’t often wear sparkly things on my lips so I feel I dont suit this. But if you love sparkles give this a go.
You apply colour let dry and then apply the clear coating so does take a bit of time as can be hard to tell when fully dry as it’s a slightly sticky formula.
It wears ok mine stayed on for a few hours but definitely not 24hr it looked ok but was wearing down fast in the inner lip and needed reapplication so. It did last a while though on the outer lip and needed removal with a babywipe but I was worried about my appearance with the inner lip wearing away so I don’t know if I will be racing back to use this. Others might have better luck.
