Lip Color #thestruggleisreal

Like most of us, I have tried many different types of lip color. I’m interested in hearing about your favorites, so comment below! For now, I’m here to tell you about my #1.

Drum roll.

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink>>.

The Reasons:

  • Doesn’t dry my lips. This is important because I live in CO, but usually I will still add a lip gloss for extra plumpy shine (so long as it’s not too windy because having my hair stuck on my lips is not a look I support).
  • I LOVE the colors available and feel there is a color for everyone. As a natural strawberry blonde haired, brown eyed, pale, Greek woman I find that most brands don’t have what I’m looking for, until now.
  • Stays on (but not too much). What do I mean by this? It doesn’t stay on so intensely that I am scrubbing my lips raw trying to get it off.

Side tangent: I am a BIG believer in the idea that make up shouldn’t be too difficult to remove. If it takes more than a minute of my time to remove…I’m out! And actually, for this reason, I never wear waterproof mascara. That stuff is a serious commitment!

My current stock of Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink lip colors: include Lover, Self-Starter, Seductress, and Loyalist. But trust me, I’ll be getting more! Also, I find that I enjoy using a gold lip liner. Interesting, huh? Something to try.

I’ve linked you to Amazon, but you can get it at any Target, Pharmacy, Food Store, Ulta…you get me, its easily available.

XO, Nico
