Maybelline Super stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick 245 Seeker Review

Liquid lipsticks are becoming more and more popular by the day and I am always keen on trying new lipstick launches especially this range from Maybelline because of its high claims of 16 HR stay. This is not a new launch, they have added 13 new beautiful shades to their previous collections which are suitable for Indian skin tone, and their earlier shades had many pale colours which wouldn’t flatter Indian skin tone. I picked up a beautiful deeper and warm brown shade “Seeker.” Read to know more about it.

Packaging and Appearance

The liquid lipstick comes in a colour-coded tube with a white cap. The shade of the liquid lipstick is lighter as compared to the outer packaging. The shade name is mentioned on the bottom of the tube which makes it easy to find a particular shade. It has a pointed leaf-shaped shade sponge applicator with a hole in it which helps in the precise application and also helps to define the lips.

My Experience with Maybelline Super stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick – 245 Seeker

Seeker is a deeper warmer brown shade which is suitable for all skin tones. The shade is much pigmented and one swipe is enough. The lipstick takes around five minutes to set completely. If you apply more than a layer it can feel heavy on the lips and would be uncomfortable. It also covers pigmented lips. The lipstick has a mild vanilla fragrance that vanishes after application. The lipstick feels slightly sticky on the lips hence I would suggest not to purse your lips after application for a few minutes. Initially, it does feel stickier which might be uncomfortable for many but personally for me it is not uncomfortable. But with time the stickiness becomes less noticeable. For those with dry lips, exfoliation is recommended. It does not emphasize any dry flaky area on the lips. Without an oil-based makeup, the lipstick won’t come off.

Texture and finish: Maybelline Super stay matte ink liquid lipstick 245-Seeker has a medium-thick texture that glides smoothly on the lips and settles into a velvety matte finish which appears slightly glossy. It is lightweight but can be uncomfortable for many people because of its sticky texture.

Longevity: Maybelline Super stay matte ink liquid lipstick 245-Seeker is not transfer-proof but it is smudge-proof and waterproof. It transfers very slightly and will come off little from the centre of the lower lip if you eat anything oily. However, the lipstick on the upper lip is intact.  The staying power of the lipstick is remarkable as it stays for more than 10 hours on my lips which fulfils the claims made by the brand.
