Review: Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink - Soloist 140


"Long-lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick. Intense liquid matte provides long lasting lipstick that stays on for up to 12-hours. Super Stay Matte Ink™ features a unique arrow applicator for easy, precise application" - Maybelline

I've had these (Voyager 50, Visionary 95) since earlier this year, and I think they're actually really good for wearing with a mask as they are long lasting and 'kiss proof' which means you don't end up with them over your face.

This shade, Soloist 140 is a dusty mauve shade, it swatches darker on my hand than my lips as the natural colour of my lips will change the shade. This shade only needed one coat for full opacity.

[Hand Swatch]
It smells of vanilla but the scent doesn't linger once it has dried down.

[Lip Swatch]
It doesn't crumble, it dries down to a matte finish but it doesn't feel drying. Does stick to itself but not in an annoying way, something quite unique. Can eat and drink wearing this without it wearing down, to remove it you will need an oil based remover (or any oil).

I would bring a black as that is my go to colour, a holographic and perhaps a neon polish with me on holiday.

Stamping Plate: Nicole Diary 136 [from Born Pretty Store #48202]*



Nicole Diary 136 is a rectangle plate 6cm by 12cm. It comes with a blue protective sticker over the top to protect the plate in transit. The images did stamp across but the fine lines were a little tricky to work with particularly in the hotter summer weather. Using a 45 degree angle scrape helped rather than the standard 90 degree angle.

Here are two nail art designs I have done using this plate;
