Chief Editor of website Veronika Gnezdilova continues to test the most interesting beauty products. Superstay Ink Crayon Ultra Long Lasting Lipstick

If I was offered to choose only one makeup product, it would definitely be a lip pencil. I can go without mascara and even without foundation, but lip makeup, I think, defines the look.

The pencil has one important advantage over lipstick: they can visually enlarge the lips, if you emphasize their shape, going a little beyond the contours.Lipstick in a stick does not achieve such a result. True, lipstick, as a rule, has another undeniable advantage - it does not dry out lips.

The Maybelline New York brand decided to combine all these pluses in one tool and released the iconic Superstay Matte Ink lipstick in a pencil format. We recently tested the most popular shades, which you can find here.

I also like Superstay Matte Ink liquid lipstick, by the way, but its re-release in stick format is a complete delight.

The most important property of the new product is ultra-resistance. I did lip makeup with a pencil in the morning before leaving for the office and slightly corrected the contours only at the end of the working day. Lunch, three cups of coffee and at least five glasses of water pencil (regardless of shade, and I tested 06, Accept a Dare; 65, Settle for More; 35, Treat Yourself), holds up with a bang, the color is not erased even in the center of the lips.

The palette of the new lipstick-pencil has as many as 11 rich shades, from soft pink to dark cherry.

Superstay Ink Crayon has a light creamy texture, but it looks more matte on the lips. At the same time, the product does not dry or tighten the skin of the lips. On the contrary, it slightly moisturizes and is practically not felt on the skin.

By the way, it comes with a sharpener. It's convenient!
