Maybelline | Maybelline x Puma Superstay Matte Ink: Review and Swatches
Some collaborations feel like a match made in heaven and the new Maybelline x Puma Collection is a pretty good example. Both embodying a strong, fearless, it girl vibe, the two brands have come together to create some high-performance, athleisure makeup. I've got reviews and swatches of the new Superstay Matte Ink ($11.99 CAD for 5 ml) shades from the collection to share with you today. To read on, click......

Packaging:
The Maybelline x Puma Superstay Matte Ink comes in a specially designed liquid lipstick tube embossed with a reflective accent and the Puma logo. The length of the tube is shorter in comparison to the original Superstay Matte Ink packaging but you are still getting 5 ml of product. The tapered doe-foot holds plenty of product so there's no need to re-dip the wand for a full application.

Formulation:
Hands down one of the best matte liquid lipsticks on the market, the Superstay Matte Ink has a viscous, creamy formulation that spreads easily on the lips. The pigmentation is super strong so one swipe usually provides a fully opaque coverage. The lipstick dries within a few minutes, after which it becomes pretty much bullet-proof. The color will last a full day, even with heavy eating and drinking. Although not drying, the formulation does feel a bit mask-like, which is really the only shortcoming. If you are all about a smudge-proof and transfer-proof liquid lip color, the Superstay Matte Ink is my top pick. Five new and limited edition shades are included in the Maybelline x Puma Collection and I have here three of them. See below for a description of each.

09 Unapologetic: A unique light gingerbread brown, this shade is definitely not my cup of tea. However, the formulation is opaque and easy to apply.
11 Fearless: This is a smoky mauve with a rich and pigmented formulation.
12 Unstoppable: A deeper, more purple version of "11 Fearless", this shade is also very rich and intense.
