Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon is a new, permanent lipstick crayon that launched in 12 shades with the Maybelline Summer 2019 Collection. I’m a huge fan of lip crayons its a beauty trend that’s still alive and kicking in my makeup world. I love how easily I can travel with these, how super fast I can apply them, and I just generally like the texture of a lip crayon. A few years ago L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick and La Lacquer Lip Colour Pencils which quite reminded me of these new Super Stay Ink Crayons. I was a little concerned blind buying my shade online though because I thought it would be a drier long-wearing matte.
Turns out it’s anything but!
Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon arrive in a slim, twist up barrel holds 0.04 oz of color. Each pencil has a stealthy, hidden sharpener located in the top cap of the pencil so you can keep the sharp, precise point. According the marketing they wear for eight hours and have a matte finish that glides across lips easily with a smudge and transfer-resistant finish.
They prove pretty handy if you want to line and fill easily as the the precise point easily lines lips and you can fill easily by swiping the side of the color on lips. They have an easy glide across my dry lips with a smooth, soft finish that I’d describe as semi-matte in finish. There’s no sparkle, glitter, or shine here but the finish has more of a soft, demi-matte finish that feels lightly hydrating and not super dry nor super matte either. The texture is very lightweight and comfortable to wear and didn’t dry my lips out. There’s a faint sweet flavor when I apply but it disappears really fast. I detected no fragrance.
I think the eight hour claim is misleading as is the transfer-resistant claim. I can get about six hours of wear with these and had no issues with migration or feathering but they do transfer on my cup a little bit when I’m drinking something. None the less, the color wears quite strongly without fading.
All in all, the Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon is a nice little lip crayon that wasn’t drying, had excellent pigmentation, and wear long!
